Registration on the site and provision of services
Registration is required for the user to use our services via the NapoleonCat application.
Due to the nature of the social media platforms for which we provide services, registration is always performed by a specific individual. It can be the user himself/herself, if s/he is an individual, but it can be an individual who is a member of a body, a proxy, an employee or a civil associate of the user, in which case the individual acts on behalf of the user. For the sake of simplicity, we will refer to such individuals as “associates”, without prejudging the specific legal basis on which such an individual acts for the user.
As such, we may process your personal data if you are our user or an associate of the user registered on our site.
When registering, please provide your personal data. In the case of a user who is an individual, this will be his/her personal data.

In both cases, the data are processed for the purpose of entering into and performing a services agreement between us and the user, in connection with registration.

Whether you register on our site or not, in the course of our business we interact with current or potential users (customers), business partners, suppliers, as well as individuals who are their associates (e.g., members of bodies, proxies, employees, associates, etc.). Such communication can take place through various channels – for example, in the form of emails or by telephone, and in such a case we process personal data of individuals involved in such communication. In addition to this, the data of such individuals may be provided, for example, in our commercial agreements (as the data of signatories or contact persons).
As such, we may process your personal data if you are one of the above-named individuals.
Where a commercial agreement is entered into with an individual, the legal basis for the processing of such individual’s data is the necessity to enter into and perform such agreement (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR) and our legitimate interest in being able to establish, exercise or defend potential legal claims that may arise in connection with the performance of such agreement (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).

To use a form, you need to provide your personal data necessary to be contacted and to receive a reply to your inquiry. You may also provide other data to facilitate contact or handle your inquiry.

Profiles on social media platforms – owned by the user
As part of our services, we provide our users with an interface and IT tools that enable them to communicate on their profiles on the social media platforms included in our site. Users (or, on their behalf, their associates) may post content on these social media platforms and communicate with other end users of these social media platforms.

These data are processed in connection with the maintenance of our profile, including for the purpose of informing users about our activities and promoting various events, services and products, as well as communicating with users through these social media platforms. If you communicate with us on such social media platforms, we may process your data contained in such communications. The legal basis for the processing of data for this purpose is our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) in promoting our own brand and building and maintaining a brand-related community.
Controller’s other own purposes
We also process your data for other purposes that constitute our legitimate interests, such as:
- establishing, exercising or defending legal claims, including in connection with the provision of our services;
- verifying accounts, investigating suspicious activity, detecting and preventing fraud and other violations of law or the Terms and Conditions;
- for the purpose of monitoring, testing and improving our services and resolving any related issues;
The legal basis for such processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
In addition to this, we process our users’ data for the purpose of complying with our legal obligations, arising in particular from tax and accounting regulations, including to ensure accountability (to demonstrate our compliance with legal obligations). We cooperate with law enforcement agencies and other institutions authorized to request access to your data based on applicable laws. The legal basis for such processing is a legal obligation (Article 6(1)(c) GDPR).
From whom we collect your personal data
Data collected directly from the data subject or the user user
We collect your personal data mainly from you. You provide them to us, for example, when you create an account on the site, sign up for newsletters or other forms of marketing.
If you are an associate of our user or business partner, we may have received your data from the user or business partner or from other of their associates – for example, if you are a contact person in respect of a particular agreement or involved in a particular project, or if you interact with the user on the social media platforms covered by our service.
You can also provide us with your personal data by communicating with us – e.g. asking questions about services, submitting complaints – on the site via e-mail, on social media platforms, by phone or by mail.
In addition, we process your data on how you use the site, our offers and services.
Registration and login using your Facebook account
Your personal data may also be provided to us by the social network Facebook, at your request. This applies if you want to register with us using Facebook functionality. Using this option, you will first be asked by Facebook to confirm that it can provide us with your data to the extent necessary to register with us. With your consent, Facebook will provide us with some of your data for registration purposes. To complete the registration process, you may need to complete your profile with additional personal data. Once you have created an account with us, you will be able to log in to our site using the functionality offered by Facebook.
Sending commercial information by electronic means
If you consent to receiving commercial information by electronic means (e.g., via e-mail or through tools such as push notifications, web chat or chatbot), sending such information shall mean sending commercial information by electronic means and may also constitute direct marketing through the use of telecommunications terminal equipment conducted using automatic calling devices – depending on the device on which you receive such communications.
If you consent to being contacted by phone or SMS for marketing purposes, commercial information shall be transmitted by phone to the phone number provided by you for this purpose. Such contact will constitute direct marketing using telecommunications terminal equipment and may be conducted using automated calling devices.You can withdraw such consents at any time, or restrict the manner which we use to send you such information – for details see below under “Withdrawal of consent and objection to processing” section.
Profiling for marketing purposes
In some cases, for marketing purposes, we make automated decisions to you based on profiling, i.e. automatic processing of your personal data. Profiling is a way of processing personal data that involves, among other things, using personal data to analyze or predict personal preferences, interests, etc. The use of profiling makes it possible to customize advertising and content presented to the user.
The profiling we use involves using computer algorithms to analyze your personal data (your behavior on the site, how you use the application, data collected through cookies, as well as the personal data you provide) in order to display to you directly on the site, or in direct marketing (emails, SMS/MMS, phone marketing, push notifications, web chat or chatbot, etc.), as well as on third-party websites (so-called remarketing), customized offers based on your potential preferences and interests that may relate to our services.
As a rule, the basis for profiling is our legitimate interest in marketing our own services in a way that matches your hypothetical preferences (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). However, in some cases we ask you to give consent to selected forms of marketing or automated decision-making towards you on the basis of profiling, in which case the legal basis for processing is your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR).

Whom do we share your data with?
Entities processing data on our behalf
We share personal data with companies whose services we use to comply with our obligations to you or to conduct our business, in accordance with the purposes of the processing. Accordingly, your personal data that are required for the relevant purpose may be shared with the following recipients:

However, given the principles of integrating our service with social media platforms, each of our users (or user’s associate) and a third party has his or her own account with a social media platform, and the operator of the social media platform is also the controller of his or her data under a separate agreement entered into by the operator directly with the user (or the user’s associate, respectively) or the third party.

Right to obtain a copy of data
On this basis, we provide you with a copy of your data that we process.
Right to rectification of data
If your personal data that we process is inaccurate, you have the right to request their rectification, as well as completion if they are incomplete.

Details of the right to data portability are regulated in Article 20 of the RODO.
How to exercise additional rights
You can withdraw your consent or object by sending an e-mail to [email protected].
You may exercise these rights at no charge. However, if the data subject’s requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character (e.g., unfounded, repetitive requests for information), then we will be able to charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested, as well as refuse to act on the request.
We stipulate that the exercise of the rights described above may require verification of your identity. If we fail to successfully verify your identity, we may refuse to act on your request.
