Contact forms and inquiries


The process

Barlinek processes personal data of individuals who contact us in a traditional way, as well as through the website, e.g. through contact forms, inquiries, registration of architects. The personal data contained in this correspondence shall be processed solely for the purpose of communication and the handling of the issue to which it relates. In order to use the electronic form, it is necessary to provide personal data necessary for contact. The person contacting us may also provide other data in order to facilitate the contact or handling of the inquiry. Providing data marked as mandatory is required in order to accept and handle the inquiry, while failure to provide such data results in the inability to use the form. Providing data which are not required is voluntary.

In the event of contacting the Controller by phone, in matters not related to the concluded agreement or the services provided, we may only request personal data as long as it is necessary to handle the case to which the contact pertains.


Personal Data

The processing of personal data of the contact persons includes the name, last name, e-mail address, telephone number, locality, address (street, house number, postal code), company and membership of the architect zone (by selecting the appropriate field).


Purpose and legal basis of the processing

The legal basis for processing your personal data in the case of providing them in connection with the possibility of contact is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (legally justified interest – replying to a message) in connection with the necessity of handling a reported issue, sending a catalogue or handling an enquiry.

In the case of giving additional consent to sending commercial information, your personal data (e-mail address, telephone number) may be processed in order to send commercial information by electronic means, including newsletters about Barlinek’s own products. In this case, the basis for processing these personal data will be Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR, (consent) given by clicking on the appropriate function windows located on the Barlinek Institute of Design website or when applying for participation in contests organised by the Controller.


If you have consented to the processing of your data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by sending this information to daneosobowe.bsa@barlinek.com
