Personal data provided to us by the Clients are processed in a manner that is in compliance with the scope of consent given to us by the Clients and the requirements of law, in particular with European Parliament and Council Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of April 27th, 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC. The personal data of Clients is stored on servers which assure their safety.

In case if the Irish Polish Chamber of Commerce no longer needs to process your personal data, the data will be removed from our systems and registers, or we will undertake proper steps to make it anonymous, i.e. will make it impossible that you are identified on the basis of the data (unless we must keep your data in order to conform with legal obligations binding to economic entities, e.g. personal data entered in agreements and business letters can be subject to basic storing obligations for the period of 10 years). All other personal data can be removed after 5 years from the lapse of contractual obligations between you and the Irish Polish Chamber of Commerce.

Expressing onsent confirms an agreement to receive information on events, activities and news in our Chamber and member companies.

 

The processors of your personal data could be economic entities located or conducting their business outside of the EU, where the regulations regarding personal data can be on a different protection level in comparison to the regulations in force within the European Economic Area – in which the binding regulation is the European Parliament and Council Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of April 27th, 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC.
