On our website, we use technologies, such as cookies, to collect and process personal data in order to personalize content and ads, and to analyze traffic on our site. In this way, this technology is also used by entities related to Bulldog English. We would like to introduce you to the details of the technologies used by us and the regulations that come into force on 25/05/2018, so that you will have full knowledge and comfort in using our website. Read the following information:
On 25 May 2018, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and the repeal of Directive 95/46 shall apply. / WE (commonly referred to as “GDPR”). GDPR will apply in the same scope in all European Union countries, thus also in Poland and introduces a number of changes in the rules governing the processing of personal data that will affect many areas of life, including the use of online services such as store services online www.bulldogenglish.org. In this information, we present an abbreviation of the most important issues regarding the processing of your personal data, which may take place from May 25, 2018 in connection with the use of our services.
What are personal data
Personal data is, according to the GDPR , information on an identified or identifiable natural person. In the case of using our services such data are, for example, an email address, IP address or your data defined in the User’s account of our store. Personal data may be saved in cookies or similar technologies (eg local storage) installed by us or our Trusted Partners on our website and devices that you use when using our services.
Basis and purpose of processing
The processing of personal data requires a legal basis. The GDPR provides for several types of such legal grounds for data processing, and in the case of using our services, there will be, as a rule, three of them:
• 1. The necessity of processing to conclude or perform the contract to which you are a party. In our case, the contract is the regulations of the given service. If, therefore, we conclude an agreement with you for the implementation of a given service (eg sales of products), we can process your data to the extent necessary to implement this contract. If you create a user account with us, then the agreement for creating this account authorizes us to process the data necessary to provide it (eg data provided by you in the profile of this account). Without this option, we would not be able to provide you with the service, and you would not be able to use it.
• 2. Necessity of processing for purposes arising from legitimate interests pursued by the administrator or by a third party. This basis for data processing refers to cases where their processing is justified due to our justified needs, which includes, among other things, the need to ensure the security of the service (eg checking whether an unauthorized person is not logging in to your account), making statistical measurements, improving our services and matching them to the needs and convenience of users (eg personalizing content in services) as well as conducting marketing and promotion of their own services.
• 3. Your voluntary consent. It is mainly needed in the case when marketing services are provided to you by third parties (ie Trusted Partners, referred to below) and when we provide such services to third parties. To be able to show ads that interest you (e.g. a product you may need), advertisers and their representatives must be able to process your data. Granting such consent is entirely voluntary, and you do not have to give it if you do not want to. Thanks to our solution, you also have the option to limit the scope or change your consent at any time. Your other rights resulting from giving consent are described below.
Your data, as part of our services, will be processed only if we or any other entity that processes data is one of the legal bases allowed by the GDPR and only for the purpose adapted to the given basis, as described above. Your data will be processed until the basis for processing is available – that is, if the consent is granted until it is withdrawn, limited or other actions restrict your consent, in the event of the necessity of the data to perform the contract – for the duration of its execution, the basis for data processing is the legitimate interest of the administrator – until such a legitimate interest exists.

Your data will be processed by Bulldog English and Trusted Partners, if you agree, but they may also be entrusted for processing to other entities. In any such case, the transfer of data does not entitle the recipient to any use of them, but only to use for purposes explicitly indicated by the entity Bulldog English. The data transfer usually takes place in the case of cooperation with a subcontractor (eg marketing agency) or a service provider (eg a provider of data storage services). Thanks to this, we can, for example, better choose the most interesting or the cheapest offers tailored for you. In any case, the transfer of data does not release the transferor from the responsibility for their processing. Data may also be transferred to public authorities, provided that they are empowered by applicable law and submit a request,
