The activities of Service Providers must comply with applicable data protection regulations, and in particular, they must protect the rights of data subjects, e.g. by offering them access to personal data collected by the Service Provider and delete them at the user’s request in cases provided for by law.
Personal data to which the Service Provider has access may only be used for the purposes of concluding transactions or in connection with other services offered on the My Tower website (e.g. delivery, complaints about fraud, communication with users), as well as for purposes, as explicitly permitted by the user to whom the data relates. Using the shared personal data of other users for any other purpose is a violation of the provisions of the Agreement with the Service Provider.
When providing personal data of third parties on My Tower, the Service Provider must obtain the consent of the data subject, or disclosure of such data to My Tower must be legally permitted for other reasons.
