Privacy Policy

1. General Provisions

Protecting your privacy and securing the personal data you entrust to us is of paramount importance. We commit to transparency regarding the handling of your personal data. Vazco P.S.A., located at Podwale 7/1, Wrocław 50-043, Poland, with NIP 8971878028, REGON 385903063, and KRS 0000837361, acts as the "Administrator" for any personal data we collect, process, and hold concerning you unless stated otherwise. This is in strict adherence to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Regulation (EU) 2016/679, which emphasizes the protection of natural persons in relation to personal data processing and the free movement of such data.

2. Personal Data

The Privacy Policy for the CTO Compass application outlines the collection and processing of user personal data by the Administrator. This data is used for generating personalized questions, validating form fields, operating chat rooms, and providing written recommendations and suggested content through OpenAI's API. Data collection aims at enhancing answer relevancy and user satisfaction, conducted anonymously without linking to user IPs. Automatic data collection occurs through application use, stored in Vercel logs and Local Storage. Users consent to this data processing by accepting the Privacy Policy upon application use.

3. Personal Data Security & Storage

Ensuring the security of your personal data is a top priority for us. We've adopted a comprehensive security policy and utilize rigorously verified systems to guard against unauthorized access, modification, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information, username, and data stored on our site. Access to your data is limited only to employees who have been authorized to process personal data and who need it to perform their duties. We retain your personal data solely for the duration necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, with specific retention periods depending on the type of data and the reason for its storage. Personal data collected through contact forms or provided for communication with us is processed for the length of the communication or until you object to such processing, but not beyond the period of limitation for claims. Data used for marketing purposes is processed until you withdraw your consent.

4. Data Processing Rights

If your data is processed, you may have certain rights under data protection laws in regions like the EU. These may include the right to:

  • access the data,
  • rectify the data,
  • restrict the processing of the data,
  • erase the data,
  • transfer the data,
  • object to the processing of data which takes place on the basis of the Company’s legitimate interest,
  • withdraw your consent (where processing is based on consent) at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent before its withdrawal. EU residents who believe their personal information is unlawfully processed can complain to their local data protection authority, for instance, in Poland, to the President of the Office for Personal Data Protection.

5. Personal Data Recipients

Recipients of personal data include entities providing IT services for site maintenance, hosting, mailbox management, consulting, and services in accounting, finance, recruitment, legal areas, as well as newsletter providers, Vazco contractors and co-workers, affiliates, trusted vendors, marketing agencies, app and social media platforms, banks, and couriers. Vazco may share information with authorities or third parties on a lawful basis. We take all necessary measures to ensure that subcontractors and other cooperating entities also provide guarantees to apply appropriate security measures whenever they process personal data on our behalf. Personal data may be transferred outside the EEA to countries ensuring adequate protection or under standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission for countries not meeting these standards. Further details or safeguards can be obtained from Vazco's registered office or via email.
