Personal data is data concerning the tangible or personal relationship of a specific or identifiable individual. These include, for example, your name, phone number, address, and all of the basic data that you provide to us when you register and create a customer account.
2.1 Customer Account For each customer who registers on our site using the “Create Account” function, we set up a customer account, i.e. password-protected direct access to the user’s basic data stored with us. Among other things, the user can see his completed, pending and recently shipped orders here, or manage his personal data and newsletter.
2.1.1 Create a customer account
When registering a customer account, it is mandatory to provide the following data (required information):
– e-mail address
– consent and data protection provisions
Invoice address and delivery address should be provided only when the order is placed. In order to process your order, we need your correct name, address and payment details. We need your e-mail address so that we can confirm receipt of your order and its shipment, and in general for communication with you. In addition, we use the user’s e-mail address for identification (as a login name) when the user logs into his/her customer account.
2.1.2 Using a customer account
The user can use his/her customer account to log into the Gofrex online store. User data is transferred to these services only if the user logs in. In the case of services that GOFREX s.c. does not offer, the transfer of data occurs only with the user’s consent, which can be given as part of the login process.
If the user does not log out of his/her customer account, he/she remains automatically logged in. This feature allows you to use some of our services without having to log back into your customer account. For security reasons, the user is asked to enter the password again, for example when changing personal information or placing an order.
2.2 Collection, processing and use of your personal data
We collect, save and process your data in the course of handling your purchases, including any subsequent warranties, for the performance of our services, for technical administration, for our own marketing purposes (see Section 2.3 for more on this) and for the prevention of criminal acts and fraud. Your personal information is transferred to third parties only when permitted by law, including for contractual or billing purposes, for marketing purposes, or if you have given your prior consent. For example, in the context of order processing, the service providers we cooperate with (e.g., carrier, logistics company, banks) receive the necessary data to process the order and order. The service providers may use the data transferred in this way only for the purpose of carrying out their task.
2.3 Use of user data for advertising purposes
In addition to processing your data in the context of handling your purchase at the Gofrex online store, we also use your data for the following purposes: to continuously optimize your shopping experience with customer-friendly and personalized offers; to be able to contact you in connection with orders and certain products and marketing campaigns; and to recommend products or services that may be of interest to you.
We use the information we obtain for this purpose, for example, confirmation of receipt and reading of e-mails, information about the end device you have, your Internet connection, operating system and platform, the date and time of your visit to the site or the products you viewed, and information we obtain from you (including automatically transmitted or generated information). In addition, we also use order history.

If the user would like to unsubscribe from the newsletter, he or she can cancel his or her consent at any time at no cost other than the cost of forwarding the information at the basic tariff. For this purpose, a notice in text form to the contact information listed in Section 1 (e.g., e-mail, letter) is sufficient. Of course, an unsubscribe link is available in each newsletter.

What are cookies (cookies)?
Cookies are small files stored on the user’s data carrier, used for the user’s browser to save certain settings and data for exchange with our system. There are two types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted when the user closes the browser, and temporary/permanent cookies, which are stored for a longer period or permanently on the user’s data carrier. By storing these files, we are able to properly prepare our websites and our offerings for the user’s preferences. This makes it easier for the user to use the site, for example, by storing certain user data so that the user does not have to enter it each time.
What kind of cookies does Gofrex use?
What data is stored in cookies?
Only pseudonymized data is stored in the cookies used by Gofrex. When a cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number without assigning the user’s personal data to this identification number. The user’s name, IP address or similar user data that allows a cookie to be directly assigned to the user is not stored in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology, we only obtain pseudonymized information, for example, which pages of our store the user has visited, which products he or she has viewed, etc.
What is Onsite Targeting?
Based on cookie technology, the Gofrex website collects data in order to optimize our advertising and the entire online store offering. This data is not used to identify the user, but is only used for pseudonymized analysis of how the website is used. Thanks to this technology, we can present you with advertising and/or special offers and services, the content of which is based on information obtained from analyzing mouse clicks (for example, advertising based on the fact that you have only viewed bubble waffles in recent days). Our goal is to develop a maximally attractive online offer for the user and to present advertising that corresponds to the user’s areas of interest.
Are third party cookies (so-called third party cookies) also used?
Gofrex cooperates with some advertising companies that help make websites more attractive to users. Therefore, when you visit the websites, cookies from partner companies are also stored on your computer’s hard drive. These are temporary/permanent cookies that are automatically deleted after a certain amount of time has passed. Temporary and permanent cookies (retention period from 14 days to 10 years) are stored on the hard drive of the user’s computer, and are automatically deleted after a certain period of time. Also, cookies of partner companies contain only pseudonymized data, mostly anonymous. These are, for example, information about what products the user has viewed, whether he has made a purchase, what products he has searched for, etc. Some of our partners also collect information about what sites the user has visited before or what products he or she is interested in, in order to target ads that will best suit the user’s interests.
Our websites use what is known as retargeting technology. We use this technology to be able to offer users a more attractive online offer. It allows us to present users who have taken an interest in our store and our products with relevant advertising on the websites of our partners. We believe that displaying personalized, interest-related advertising is generally more attractive to users than advertising that does not have such a personalized connection. The display of this advertising material on our partners’ websites is based on cookie technology and analysis of the user’s previous behavior. This form of advertising is implemented completely anonymously.
When you use our website, cookies are used to collect, save and use data about your behavior. In addition, the user data contained in the cookies are stored after the end of the browser session and, for example, used during the next visit to the website.
How can I block cookies from being saved?
There are settings in your browser to accept the saving of cookies only if you have given your consent. In this way you can block the saving of cookies in the future. To accept the use of Gofrex cookies, while blocking the use of third-party cookies, select the “Block third-party site cookies” option in your browser settings.
As a rule, on the menu bar of your browser through the help function you can get information on how to reject new and disable stored cookies.
4. Log files
During each visit to Gofrex’s web pages, the web browser provides data on user behavior, which are saved in log files, so-called server log files. The data records saved in this way contain the following data: the date and time of the download, the name of the page opened, the IP address, the URL of the reference page (the address of the page from which the user was redirected), the amount of data downloaded, as well as information about the product version of the web browser used.
These log file data records are analyzed by us in order to optimize our offerings and create the most user-friendly Gofrex store possible, as well as to detect and fix errors faster and manage server performance. In addition, we use the log file data records to protect against attacks on our Gofrex store, such as in so-called distributed denial of service attacks, which aim to block access to our store by overloading queries.
5. Internet analysis
In order to continuously optimize and improve our offerings, we use so-called tracking technologies. We use Google Analytics and Webtrekk services for this purpose.
5.1 Google Analytics
This website uses the web statistics analysis tool Google (Universal) Analytics from Google Inc. (www.google.pl). Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods to analyze your use of the website, such as cookies, which are text files stored on your computer. The information generated in this way regarding your visit to this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address is truncated by Google before it is transmitted within the member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional situations is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The anonymized IP address sent by the user’s browser as part of the Google Analytics service is not combined with other Google data. The user can avoid the transmission of the data generated by the cookie relating to his/her use of the website (including the IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following address: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=pl .
Alternatively, you can also click this link to avoid future data storage by Google Analytics on this website. An opt-out cookie is then stored on the user’s device. After deleting the cookies, click on the link again.
Consent to the collection and storage of data by Webtrekk can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please open the following link: https://www.webtrekk.com/en/index/opt-out-webtrekk
After confirming the link, a so-called opt-out cookie is placed on the user’s storage medium. It remains valid for 5 years. Please note that when all cookies are deleted from the computer, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, i.e. in order for the revocation of consent for anonymized data collection by Webtrekk to remain active, the opt-out cookie must be placed again. The opt-out cookie is associated with a particular browser on a particular computer. If you visit our sites from home and from work or using different browsers, you must activate the opt-out cookie in different browsers and on different computers.
