If you gave us a donation (by yourself, via PayU or by donating 1% of your income tax) but you did not agree that we send you any correspondence, we will process your personal data for a period corresponding to the periods arising from the applicable law, including the Tax Ordinance, Accounting Act and Civil Code (the statute of limitation on claims). We process the data you gave us while setting up an account on pomagamy.pl for the same period of time.

Do we entrust and make your personal data available to other entities?

To make a donation through the intermediation of that payment operator, PHA transmits your personal data to PayU S.A. with its registered office in Poznań. PayU is an independent data controller.
