How do we process your personal data?

We process personal data in accordance with applicable law, in particular in accordance with GDPR. We have the following rules in mind when we process your personal information:
  • Adequacy rule. We process only data that is necessary to achieve a given processing goal. We have carried out an analysis of the fulfilment of this rule for each business process;
  • Transparency rule. You should have full knowledge of what is happening with your data. This document, in which we try to provide you with complete information about the rules of processing your personal data by us, is its manifestation;
  • Accuracy rule. We strive to keep your personal data in our systems up-to-date and truthful. If you find that in any area your personal data have not been updated or are incorrect, please contact us at the email address hello@codequest.com;
  • Integrity and confidentiality rule. We apply the necessary measures to safeguard the confidentiality and integrity of your personal data. We are constantly improving them, along with the changing environment and technological progress. Security includes physical and technological measures restricting access to your data, as well as appropriate measures to prevent loss of your data;
  • Accountability rule. We want to be able to account for each of our actions regarding personal data, so that in the event of your inquiry we can give you full and reliable information about what actions we have been carried out on your data.

What rights do you have regarding the processing of your personal data?

The provisions of law give you a number of rights that you can use at any time. Unless you abuse these rights (e.g. unreasonable daily requests for information), exercising them will be free of charge and should be easy to implement.
Your rights include:
  • The right to access your personal data. This right means that you can ask us to export from our databases the information we have about you and send it to you in one of the commonly used formats (eg XLSX, DOCX, etc.);
  • The right to correct personal data. If you find out that your personal data we process is incorrect, you may ask us to correct it and we will be obliged to do so. In this case, we have the right to ask you for a document or proof of the change;
  • The right to seek restriction of personal data processing. If despite the fact that we adhere to the adequacy principle, that is we process only data that is necessary to achieve a given processing goal, you consider that for a specific purpose we process too wide catalogue of your personal data, you have the right to request that we restrict (limit) the scope of processing. If the request does not oppose the requirements imposed on us by applicable law, or it is not necessary for the performance of the contract, we will accept your request;
  • The right to request erasure of personal data. This right, also known as the right to be forgotten, means that you can demand that we remove any information that contains your personal information from our systems and any other records. Remember, however, that we will not be able to do so if we are obliged to process your data under provisions of law (for example transaction documents for tax purposes, obligation to ensure the accountability of our activities). In each case, however, we will remove your personal data to the fullest extent possible, and where it is not possible we will ensure their pseudonymisation (which means that the data subjected cannot be identified without a corresponding key). Allowing this, your data we need to keep in line with applicable law will be available only to a very limited group of people in our organization;
  • The right to personal data portability. By the GDPR, you can ask us to port the data you provided to us in the course of all our contacts and all cooperation to a separate file, for the purpose of further transfer to another data controller;
  • The right to withdraw consent. If we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you can revoke this consent at any time. Withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of the processing previously performed on the basis of the consent (prior to its withdrawal). However, we would like to inform you that your personal data in the scope of the purpose covered by the revoked consent will cease to be processed for this purpose only. Your personal data subject to consent will be further processed in order to fulfil our obligations under the law, including, in particular, the obligation to account for the correctness of personal data processing, or for the purposes based on our legitimate interest.
You can perform the above-mentioned rights by contacting us at the e-mail address hello@codequest.com or by post on code quest sp. z o.o., ul. Zamiany 8 LU 202, 02-786 Warszawa with the note "Personal data".
In all matters related to personal data, you can always write to us, especially when any action or situation you encounter raises your concerns about its legality or if you feel that your rights or freedoms may be violated. In this case, we will answer your questions and concerns and immediately address the issue.
If you believe that in any way we have violated the rules for the processing of your personal data, you have the right to submit a complaint directly to the supervisory authority (from 25 May 2018, it is the President of the Office for Personal Data Protection in Poland). As part of exercising this right, you should provide a full description of the situation and indicate what action you consider as violating your rights or freedoms. The complaint should be submitted directly to the supervisory authority.

What is the right to object?

We would like to inform you separately that you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data.
You submit the right to object when you do not want us to process your personal data for a specific purpose (for example for marketing purposes).
You have the right to object also when the processing of your personal data is based on a legitimate interest of the controller or for statistical purposes, and the opposition is justified by the particular situation in which you have found yourself. In this case, we will continue to process your data for other processes (for other purposes), but not for the purpose for which you objected. You can exercise the right to objection by sending a message to the e-mail address hello@codequest.com or by post to the address code quest sp. z o.o., ul. Zamiany 8 LU 202, 02-786 Warszawa with a note "Personal data".

Is it your obligation to provide your data?

You do not have a legal obligation to provide us with your personal data. Without obtaining them, however, we will not be able to provide our services to you.

Do we transfer your data outside EU

Yes, we can transfer your data to a third country or to international organizations. Such a possibility occurs primarily in the situation when we use platforms to conduct e-marketing activities located on servers in the United States of America.
If we pass your data to a third country or international organizations, we always make sure that their recipients guarantee a high level of personal data protection. For US entities, these guarantees result from participation in the Privacy Shield, established by Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of protection provided by the EU Privacy Shield - USA.
