Processing personal data of persons using electronic customer system

We process data of persons using the electronic customer system in order to provide building administration and maintenance services and to issue invoices for the services electronically.

The use of the electronic customer system is voluntary – if you wish, you may not use this system and continue to get invoices by post. However, if you decide to use the electronic customer system, you will need to provide your personal data as requested during registration. If you do not provide such personal data, we will not be able to identify, to register you and to allow you to use the system.

We shall process your personal data on the basis of your consent, performance of the contract and discharge of obligations provided for by legal acts.

We shall store your personal data for 10 years after we stop providing the service.

Processing personal data of candidates taking part in selection procedures

If you sent your CV for a specific job position in response to a job ad posted on our website or on a specialized recruitment and job search website, we shall process your voluntarily submitted and other personal data listed below for employee selection purposes.

We shall process your personal data till the end of the selection procedure, i. e. until we will decide to hire a specific candidate, the end of his/ her trial period or until we will decide to end the selection without selecting any candidate. After the selection procedure, we shall destroy your personal data, unless you consent to continued storage of your data for future selections. If you consent to us storing your data after the selection procedure, please inform us thereof by e-mail or express your consent during our meeting. If you give such consent, we shall store your data for 6 years, and should we need to hire a new employee in our company during this period of time, we shall contact you. At the end of the 6-year period, we shall destroy your personal data.

We shall process your personal data on the basis of your consent to participate in selection procedures and to continue to store them, also on the basis of obligations and rights provided for in legal acts.

Please be informed that by exercising the right granted to us by legal acts regulating the protection of personal data, we may contact your previous employers and ask for their opinion on your qualifications, professional abilities and relevant skills. However, we shall not contact your current employer without your express prior consent thereto.

Quality control and assurance of proper provision of services (Call recording)

We shall record phone calls in order to control the quality of the provided services and to ensure their proper provision. Call recording shall be based on your consent – you shall be informed that the call will be recorded before starting the conversation, and you shall be asked to continue the conversation only if you consent to it being recorded. If you do not consent to recording the call, you can end the call and contact us by e-mail, mail or come to our office. Please be informed that we will be able to provide you with information falling within the category of personal data by e-mail or post only after identifying you or having your completed form confirming that the e-mail which you used to e-mail us actually belongs to you.

Call recordings shall be stored for a maximum of 45 days and will then be destroyed.

Administering complaints, inquirieS or feedback

If you have filed with the company a complaint, inquiry or feedback by e-mail or other means, we shall process your voluntarily provided personal data for the purpose of administration of this complaint, inquiry or feedback.

If your complaint relates to a potential dispute, potential damage, etc., your personal data may be stored for a maximum period of 10 years. If your personal data are not related to a potential dispute, we shall destroy them sooner than that.

The processing of your personal data shall be based on the expression of your free will, i.e. a consent, but in certain cases discharge of the obligations provided for in legal acts may become the basis for further storage of a complaint.

E-mail communication

According to the Regulation, the content of e-mail correspondence shall be considered personal data, even if the correspondence is between employees of legal entities. Therefore, we shall apply the rules on the processing of personal data required by the Regulation to the content of communication and to e-mail addresses.

The basis of the processing of your personal data shall be the expression of your free will to correspond and to provide certain data in the correspondence, i.e. your consent. Moreover, performance of the agreement and discharge of obligations provided for in legal acts may also be the basis of processing of data.

We shall process your e-mail address, content of correspondence and related data in accordance with the principle of proportionality. These data shall first of all be accessible by the employee with whom you communicate directly. However, in certain cases, other employees of our company may also read your correspondence for the purposes of, say, internal administration, investigation of possible violations of legal acts or internal rules, substitution of an employee and other related purposes.
