In order to provide you with the clearest possible information, we have grouped this information according to the purpose of processing your personal data.

The information collected below may be further detailed or amended by us in the context of fulfilling certain purposes for processing your personal data – i.e. you may receive information from us relating to a specific purpose of processing.

Our representatives may contact you to make an offer, invite you to a meeting or training session, or as part of other marketing activities. You may receive information about products and services or other information relevant to our businesses.

If you are a supplier or sub-contractor to us (or if we contact you because we are interested in entering into a purchase, supply or service relationship), the contact may be to obtain an offer, additional information or documentation.

If you register for a conference, workshop, training or other event organised by us, the information you provide may be shared with other attendees, trainers, speakers and other entities involved in the organisation and promotion of the event.

If you are a speaker, this information may also be made publicly available on the website, social media and in promotional and conference materials.

In this case, we will ask for your consent to share your image each time. Providing this information and consent is voluntary, but refusing to do so may prevent you from attending the event.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data (including special category data) at any time. To withdraw your consent, please send an email to iod@meden.com.pl with the subject line: “Withdrawal of consent to image processing”, but the withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing that was lawfully carried out prior to the withdrawal.

However, if you have given us your explicit consent, we will keep your details for the period you specify for future recruitment purposes.

You may withdraw your application and consent to data processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please send an email to iod@meden.com.pl with the subject line: “Withdrawal of Consent to Data Processing for Recruitment Purposes”, but the withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing that was lawfully carried out prior to the withdrawal of consent.

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the provision of your personal data for recruitment purposes, in accordance with the provisions of the Law of 26 June 1974 on the Labour Code and implementing legislation, is optional but necessary for the recruitment process and the examination of your application. The provision of additional personal data is voluntary and requires your express consent.

Consequences of not providing data

  • In the case of application forms (including electronic forms), the provision of data is voluntary; however, failure to provide it indicated as mandatory (required) will result in the inability to send or validate the form and, consequently, depending on the type of form, the inability to participate in the training, workshop, conference or newsletter subscription.
  • In the case of data collected by the Administrator’s representatives as part of purchasing, sales or marketing activities, the provision of the data is entirely voluntary, but failure to provide the data may result in the inability to contact you.
  • In the case of data relating to persons who are parties to a contract/order concluded with the Administrator, the provision of the data necessary for the performance of the contract and the fulfilment of legal obligations is a condition for the conclusion and execution of the contract.

Data entrusted to us by third parties

In some cases, we receive personal data from third parties for which we are the recipient or processor. This data may be used for purposes similar to those directly obtained from us. It is usually basic information necessary for the purpose and includes: first name, last name, email address, telephone number, home/delivery address, company name, job title and may include other information arising, for example, from a contract or order in connection with which personal data is provided.

We take the same care with the data entrusted to us as we do with the data of which we are the controller. You can be assured of an appropriate level of security.

Recipients of data

Personal data may be made available to suppliers, service providers and partners with whom Meden-Inmed cooperates, to the extent necessary for the provision of services to customers, the execution of commercial contracts or the maintenance of business contacts, marketing activities and the operation of the company.

Administrators. We use suppliers who do not act solely on our instructions and who themselves determine the purposes and use of your personal data by becoming administrators. The recipients of your data in this case may include, in particular, state authorities, banks, debt collection companies, law firms, the Polish Post Office, courier companies.

Data processors. In addition, your data may be disclosed to suppliers and subcontractors of IT maintenance services, email hosting, document destruction. Such entities will process data only on the basis of a contract of delegation and only in accordance with our instructions as data Administrator.

Location. Personal data is stored at our registered office and on our server in the territory of Poland. Our suppliers are mainly located in Poland and in other countries of the European Economic Area (EEA). As a rule, personal data held by Meden-Inmed is not transferred to third countries, i.e. outside the European Union. However, some of our global IT providers (e.g. Facebook, Inc, Google LLC, MailChimp) may be located outside the EEA. In this case, in connection with the transfer of your data outside the EEA, we have ensured that our suppliers provide guarantees of a high level of protection for your personal data. These guarantees arise, in particular, from the obligation to apply the standard contractual clauses adopted by the Commission (EU) or from participation in the Privacy Shield programme established by the Commission’s Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield.

We make every effort to ensure that those with whom we share your data meet high standards of data protection, including the organisational and technical measures required by the RODO.

Data Security

We have implemented an IT security and data protection policy in our company. Among other things, we have defined the rules for the use of IT systems. We require ourselves to use strong passwords, limit the number of people who have access to data and implement IT and physical security measures. We also ensure that we provide training to our employees who have access to personal data.

Rights of individuals whose data we process

Current legislation gives us all many rights, including the right to access and rectify your data, the right to erasure (in the cases specified in the RODO), the right to restrict processing and the right to data portability. Of course, you also have the right to object (where the processing is based on the administrator’s legitimate interest) and the right to withdraw consent (where the processing is based on your consent).

We remind you that withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing prior to the withdrawal of consent. We will also inform you that:

  • in some cases, we may refuse to take into account your objection to the processing of your data on the basis of a legitimate interest where there are valid legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or where there are grounds for establishing, asserting or defending claims,
  • we may refuse to erase your data despite your request if one of the situations referred to in the RODO applies, e.g. if the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation or for the establishment, assertion or defence of claims,
  • the right to erasure and the right to request the restriction of processing are only available in the cases enumerated in the provisions of the RODO,
  • the right to data portability is only available if the legal basis for the processing is consent or the performance of a contract.

If you wish to exercise your rights, please send an e-mail to: iod@meden.com.pl.

If you suspect that we are not taking sufficient care of your data, you can always lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: President of the Office for the Protection of Personal Data.
