Transfer of Personal data outside European Economic Area 

Data transfer should be understood as the way in which Data controller, processes personal data using IT solutions that have their physical location in the USA. Thus, using the solutions of suppliers with IT infrastructure (e.g. Google, Amazon) in the USA, from the formal side, means “data transfer to the USA”. So the term “data transfer to the USA” should not be understood as our goal is to send any personal data to the USA, but just the information that we use tools provided by such companies.

In order to legally process personal data using IT solutions based in the USA, it is required to enter into appropriate legal safeguards guaranteeing the same rights of data subjects as those applicable in the EEA. One of such safeguards in accordance with Article 45 of the GDPR, is the transfer of personal data to the USA based on an adequacy decision by the European Commission. According to the decision of the European Commission No. 2010/87/EU of February 5, 2010, each personal data controller, i.e. FundingBox may process personal data using these solutions if an SCC (Standard Contractual Clauses) contract is concluded.

Personal data vs. cookies mechanism

Information obtained through the cookies mechanism and operational data may constitute personal data within the meaning of GDPR in certain exceptional situations (for example IP address). Such personal data are processed only to the extent that is necessary for the correct display of the page.

Basis for processing of data collected through “Essential” cookies and operational data is the so-called legitimate interest of the Data controller (Article. 6.1. (f) of GDPR). To this end, the following may occur:

  • occasional analysis of log files to determine: which browsers are used by site visitors, which bookmarks, pages or subpages are most or least frequently visited or viewed, whether the page structure has no errors;
  • prevention of unauthorised access to the website and distribution of malicious codes, interruption of denial of service attacks, as well as prevention of damage to computer systems and electronic communication systems.

You have the right to object to such processing.

However, if you agree to  the use of “optional” cookies (e.g. provided by Google Analytics), the basis for data processing is your consent (Article 6.1. (a) of GDPR). You can withdraw your consent and delete cookies at any time (by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links provided in the cookie table above.). Withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Obtained data will be deleted or anonymised no later than the expiry of the limitation period for potential claims related to the use of the website or sooner if you object effectively or withdraw consent.
