WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE YOUR DATA?
As a university, on a daily basis we use the services of companies, thanks to which we provide you with the highest standard of service.
Your data may be forwarded to them for processing on our behalf. It happens most often in the case of cooperation with a specific service provider (e.g. a provider of data storage services, a provider of postal, courier, payment, legal, insurance, IT as well as audit services) or a subcontractor (e.g. marketing agency). We may also transfer your data to entities affiliated with us by shares or by a person. In this situation, the transfer of data does not entitle other entities to any processing, but only to use them for the purposes explicitly indicated by us. In no case does the transfer of data release us as the Administrator from the responsibility for their processing.
Regarding the use of social media by us, your data may be transferred to the owners of portals: Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, as well as marketing agencies that support us.
The Administrator’s suppliers are based mainly in Poland and other countries of the European Economic Area (EEA). Some of the suppliers are established outside the EEA. In connection with the transfer of the User’s data outside the EEA, the Administrator has made sure that the suppliers would guarantee a high level of personal data protection. These guarantees arise in particular from the obligation to use standard contractual clauses adopted by the Commission (the EU) or the participation in the “Privacy Shield” program established by Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of July 12, 2016, on the adequacy of protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield.
You have the right to request us to provide you with a copy of standard contractual clauses by sending a request to the email address of our Data Protection Officer.
