Privacy Policy

Introduction

Data protection and information security have always been a priority in the activities of SPOC S.A. Giving an example of the conscious and responsible organization, we want to inform you about the proper matters relating to the processing of personal data, especially about the content of new provisions on the protection of personal data, including the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council (EU) 2016/679 of 27.04.2016 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 (GDPR). We are aware that information has a special value that should be protected in an appropriate manner. For the security of your data, in this document, we provide key information on the legal basis for the processing of personal data, their use, and acquisition.

SPOC S.A.

SPOC S.A. with its registered office at ul. Szyperska 14, Poznań 61-754, hereinafter referred to as the “Company”.

The largest and most experienced ServiceNow partner in Poland. Since 2010, SPOC has been providing its customers with solutions for the management of business services and processes.

When does this Policy apply?

This privacy policy applies to all cases in which SPOC S.A. is the Controller (administrator) of personal data and processes personal data. This applies both to personal data obtained directly from the data subject and such that we have obtained from other sources. SPOC S.A. performs its information obligations in both situations mentioned above, specified in art. 13 and art. 14 GDPR in accordance with these provisions.

SPOC S.A. is the administrator of marketing processes (including managing accounts on social networks), IT contractors (including IT systems in which personal data of e.g. contractors are collected), security incidents, and also coordinates employee recruitment processes. The Company also operates websites www.spoc.pl and www.spoc.eu, and thus it coordinates the processing of personal data sent via the forms available on the websites (e.g. as part of the contact form).

Scope, methods and purposes of data processing

We would like all information regarding the methods and legal grounds for the processing of personal data, as well as the purposes for which we process them, to be understandable. We encourage you to read the list of personal data processing operations presented below.

Online applications and forms

Visitors to the website of SPOC S.A. may contact the Company by filling out the contact form. When using the forms, it is necessary that you provide us with your personal data. These data are processed only within the framework and for the purpose for which they were provided and with your express consent. In the context of contact forms, consent is expressed through your intentional action (the so-called final consent), i.e. sending the form and providing personal data.

Use of Social Plug-ins

On the websites https://spoc.pl/ and https://spoc.eu we use Social Plug-ins (“Plug-ins”): Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and YouTube. We use the so-called double-click solution. This means that when visiting our website, no personal user data is passed on to the plug-in providers by default. You can recognize the plug-in provider by the logo. We provide the possibility to communicate directly with the plug-in provider via the relevant button. Only after the user’s clicking the check box and its activation, the plug supplier receives information about its access to the page with the offer of our Website. After activating the plug-in, your personal data is transferred to the respective plug-in provider and stored on its servers (in the case of American providers in the USA). As the plug-in provider collects this data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all of them via the options in your browser’s security settings before clicking on the gray frame.

As far as the data collected by the plug-in providers is concerned, we have no influence on them or their processing. Neither do we know the full scope of their collection, the purpose of their processing or the duration of their storage. We also have no information on their deletion.

The plug-in provider stores the data provided by the user/user data in the form of a user profile and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research, and/or designing its website based on the preferences of the users. Such analysis is carried out (even for users who are not logged in) mainly to present advertisements tailored to individual preferences and to inform other users of the respective social network about the user’s activity on our website. The user has the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To do this, they must contact the provider of the respective plug directly. Thanks to the plug-in mechanism, the user has the ability to integrate with social networks and other users, and this will allow us to improve our offer and make it better suited to the preferences of the users. The legal basis for the use of plug-ins is set out in art. 6 sections 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR.

The data is provided regardless of whether the user has an account with the plug-in provider and is logged in there. If you are logged in to your account with the plug-in provider, the data collected on our website is assigned directly to your user account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and, for example, share the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and makes it publicly available to your friends. We recommend that you log out regularly after leaving the social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid assigning to your profile with the plug-in provider.

Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the privacy policy of the plug-in provider. It also provides information on user rights and settings enabling the protection of privacy
