§ 7 Duration of Personal Data Processing

1. In accordance with applicable law, Press Glass S.A. does not process users’ personal data “indefinitely”, but for the time that is needed to achieve the designated purpose of personal data processing. After this period, personal data shall be permanently removed or destroyed.

2. In the situation where there is no need to perform operations on users’ personal data other than storing them until they are permanently deleted or destroyed, personal data shall be additionally secured – through pseudonymisation. Pseudonymisation consists in such encryption of personal data or a personal data set that it is impossible to read them without an additional key, and thus, such information becomes completely useless to an unauthorized person.

3. Regarding individual periods of personal data processing, we kindly inform that we process personal data:

  • until the personal data become obsolete or lose validity, however, no longer than for one year with regard to the personal data: in the form of an IP address, domain name, browser type, operating system type, processed for the purpose of maintenance and operation of the www.pressglass.com website / Press Glass Mobile application, including data collected automatically in the course of users’ visits on the aforementioned website / mobile application,
  • until the consent is withdrawn or the purpose of the processing is achieved, however, no longer than until claims under the law of the relevant EU country have expired (the period of limitation on the validity of claims can be checked at: https://beta.e-justice.europa.eu/home?init=true&action=home&plang=en) in relation to personal data obtained in the scope of the user’s consent to the processing of his or her personal data, including data obtained in the profiling process,
  • until the consent is withdrawn or the purpose of the processing is achieved, however, no longer than until claims under the law of the relevant EU country have expired (the period of limitation on the validity of claims can be checked at: https://beta.e-justice.europa.eu/home?init=true&action=home&plang=en) in relation to the user’s consent granted in the recruitment processes organized by and for Press Glass,
  • in connection with the prevention of abuse and fraud, for statistical and archiving purposes, from the date of termination of the agreement or event necessitating such processing until claims under the law of the relevant EU country have expired (the period of limitation on the validity of claims can be checked at: https://beta.e-justice.europa.eu/home?init=true&action=home&plang=en).

4. At the same time, in order to implement the accountability principle, Press Glass stores personal data for the period in which the Company is obliged to maintain data or documents containing them for the purpose of documenting the fulfilment of legal requirements, including enabling control of their fulfilment by public authorities.

5. Periods in years are counted from the end of the year in which Press Glass began processing personal data. Separate term counting for each event would entail significant organizational and technical difficulties, as well as significant financial effort, so setting one date for removing or destroying personal data allows for more efficient management of these processes by Press Glass. Of course, if the user uses the right to be forgotten, such situations are considered individually.
