You can contact us by e-mail: GDPR@besolux.com or by phone at: +48 505 184 303.
2. Why do we process your personal data?
We process your personal data to the extent required by labour law, tax law, and social security law – to comply with the obligations imposed on the contracting entity (Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR). The personal data processed by us for this purpose include special categories of data, i.e. data concerning your health (e.g. initial and periodic examination or L4 certificates). The legal basis for the processing is Article 9(2)(b) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of such data whenever necessary for the purposes of complying with obligations and exercising specific rights by the controller or the data subject in the field of employment law, social security and social protection, insofar as this is permitted by Union or Polish law, or by a collective agreement under the law of a Member State which provides for adequate safeguards for the fundamental rights and interests of the data subject. The legal basis for the processing is also Article 9(2)(h) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of such data whenever the processing is necessary for the purposes of preventive or occupational medicine, for the assessment of working capacity, of the employee, for medical diagnosis, the provision of health or social care, the treatment or the management of health or social security systems and services on the basis of Union or Member State law.
Your data are also processed for the preparation, conclusion, performance and termination of our civil law contract with you (e.g. commission contract or service contract) and associated contracts (Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR).
Apart from the data required by law, we also process your other personal data closely related to the performance of your duties and our supervision of the implementation of the contract with you. This processing involves the contents of your company e-mail box and also access control systems. We can also inspect these information if necessary, but we do not systematically monitor them. Without access to this data, we would not be able to effectively supervise most of your work, and in the event of your departure or illness, we would not be able to hand over the tasks you have carried out to other persons. Therefore, the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR). We endeavour to limit the processing of your personal data to the strict minimum. We sets up a company e-mail box for you and keep you informed of the access control systems in use.
3. What kinds of personal data do we process?
We process the following of your personal data:
4. Whom do we disclose your personal data to? (transfer to third countries)
We will disclose your personal data, to the extent required, to government authorities entitled to it by law (such as tax authorities or the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS)).
Your personal data are processed in an IT system, parts of which are located in the so-called public cloud, for the purposes of storing data on a server and operating a mail server.
Your data may also be processed by the suppliers of IT tools and software used by you to implement the contract between you and us. Your data may also be disclosed to affiliated entities of Beso Lux (including Luxobeslux Sarl with its registered office in Luxembourg; address 8 Rue de Beggen, L-1220 Luxembourg; VAT EU LU28279037) and to our contractors (clients, suppliers, subcontractors) to the extent necessary for the performance of your duties.
Also, you need to know that in our business we use the support of specialised third parties who may or need to access some of your data – namely those who provide the following services to us:
Sometimes the recipients of your data may also include users of our website and recipients of information brochures, promotional materials, etc. containing information about our staff.
Some of the operations described above involve the transfer of your personal data to so-called third countries (outside the European Economic Area), where the GDPR does not apply. This is always done, however, on the basis of the legal instruments provided for in the GDPR, which guarantee adequate protection of your rights and freedoms.
5. For how long we will process your personal data?
We are obliged to store your payroll, pay slips or other evidence used to establish the basis of your retirement or pension for a period of 50 years following the date on which you cease to cooperate with us. This obligation stems from Article 125a(4) of the Act on Retirement and Pension Benefits from the Social Insurance Fund.
As regards your data that we need for social security purposes, there are several groups of data that need to be considered. The period of retention of documents (and thus of your data contained in them) varies when it comes to declaration, settlement, and payment documents.
The declaration documents of an insured person (i.e. you) and a payer of contributions (i.e. us) should be kept for at least 5 years.
As regards settlement documents, payers of contributions must keep their copies for a period of 5 years, starting from the date on which the settlements are submitted to the Social Insurance Institution (pursuant to Article 47(3c) of the Act on the Social Insurance System). This concerns copies of settlement declarations (ZUS DRA) and copies of personal monthly reports (ZUS RCA, ZUS RZA, ZUS RSA) and copies of corrective settlement documents submitted by the payer to the Social Insurance Institution.
In turn, payment documents constitute evidence of payment of contributions and the date of their payment, with the obligation to keep them arising indirectly from the Tax Ordinance. Payment documents (confirming payment of social security contributions, health insurance premiums, the Labour Fund and the Guaranteed Employee Benefits Fund), as they evidence the costs incurred and the entitlement to a retirement pension, should be kept until the statute of limitations for tax liabilities.
As regards your personal data contained in your company e-mail box, such data will be stored for a period necessary to protect you against any claims you may have against us in connection with our legal relationship (until the expiry of the statute of limitations for such claims)
6. How do we make it possible for you to exercise your rights?
