Our website address is: dollarcostaveraging.io.
This document explains what information is collected by the Service – how we secure and use it.
We have decided not to appoint a personal data protection officer due to the fact that in our situation this is not mandatory.
We process data of each user characterizing the way he uses our Service (these are so-called operating data).
This processing includes an automatic reading of a unique identification identifying the end of the telecommunications network or IT system you use (i.e. your IP address), the date and time of the server, information about the technical parameters of the software and the device you use (e.g. whether you use your laptop or phone for browsing our site and the place from which you connect to our server. We may use this information for market research purposes and to improve the performance of the Service. The data stored in the server logs is not associated with specific people using the website. The server logs are the only auxiliary material used to administer the Service.
This data is processed on the basis of Article 6 item. 1(f). GDPR (processing is necessary for purposes arising from legitimate interests pursued by the administrator or by a third party). This legitimate interest is to enable the diagnosis of errors in the Service and the improvement of its quality.
We process your personal data in order to carry out the agreement concluded by you for keeping an account in the Service.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is, therefore, Article 6 item. 1(b). GDPR (processing is necessary for the performance of the agreement to which the data subject is a party or to take action at the request of the data subject prior to the conclusion of the agreement), and Article 6. item 1(c). GDPR (processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation on the administrator).
We also process your personal data on the basis of Article 6 item. 1(f). GDPR (processing is necessary for purposes arising from legitimate interests pursued by the administrator or by a third party). It is a legitimate interest for the processing of your personal data that we are able to prove the content of the agreement between us and you in case of a dispute and that we have performed it properly.
On the basis of legitimate interest, we use such analytical tools as Google Analytics, Facebook Analytics, and Clicky, which allows us to view the use of your accounts on our site (functions you use, pages viewed, subscriptions). This allows us to provide support services for you and improve the operation of the Service. However, we do not monitor your behaviour on an ongoing basis and we do not process this data in any way.
By contacting us, you provide us with your personal data, including those contained in the content of the correspondence, in particular the email address, name, and surname. Providing this data is voluntary, but necessary to contact us.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data that you provide by contacting us is Article 6 item. 1(f). GDPR (processing is necessary for purposes arising from legitimate interests pursued by the administrator or by a third party). The “legitimate interest for the processing of your personal data” in this case is the possibility for us to contact Service users and answer questions asked by persons interested in the operation of the Service.
Using the Service you may order a newsletter to be sent to your e-mail.
In such case, the legal basis for processing your personal data is point (b) of Article 6(1) of GDPR (processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract), as the newsletter is delivered to you based on an agreement that we enter into.
The legal basis for processing your personal data after you have finished contacting us is also our legitimate interest in archiving correspondence for the purposes of ensuring that you can prove certain facts in the future. So we can process your personal data for the purpose of pursuing and defending against claims pursuant to Article 6 item. 1(f). GDPR (processing is necessary for purposes arising from legitimate interests pursued by the administrator or by a third party).
Should you decide to pay for our services through an online payment system, your data will be made available to us by the supplier of the online payment processing services for the purpose of enabling us to comprehensively manage such payments by means of an integrated platform. We undertake these actions in order to improve billing control and contact with you in this regard, therefore the legal basis for these activities is art. 6 par. 1 lit. f. of GDPR (processing is necessary for purposes arising from legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party).
We process completely anonymous data of each user of the Service, which characterizes the way they use our Service (these are the so-called exploitation data). This processing includes an automatic reading of a unique identifier identifying the termination of the telecommunications network or ICT system you are using (i.e. your IP address), as well as the date and time of the server, information about technical parameters of the software and device you use (e.g. whether you are using a laptop or a telephone while browsing our Service) and the place from which you are connecting to our server. Data stored in server logs are not associated with specific people using the service. Server logs are only an auxiliary material used to administer the Service.
Cookies allow us to:
ensure proper functioning of the Service (durability of the session when you are logged in),
increase the convenience, speed, and safety of using the Service,
obtain statistical information about visits to our Service.
The cookies we use do not collect any personal data from you. Anonymous data is completely sufficient for the purposes mentioned above. If we process your personal data for other reasons (e.g. you have an account on our Service and there you provided us with your data), we do not combine them in any way with anonymous data obtained by means of cookies.
Own Cookies. Cookies can be divided into own and coming from third parties. As far as our own cookies are concerned, we use them in order to improve the functioning of the Service and to enable proper use of accounts (session maintenance).
Cookies of third parties. Our Service uses third party cookies only to create anonymous statistics of visits.
We process the following personal data:
The data of all users of the Service are processed in the IT system, located in part in the so-called public cloud computing provided by third parties (responsible for hosting the Service).
Personal data of people using the contact form are also processed in the IT system, located in part in the so-called cloud computing provided by third parties responsible for hosting the email that we use. Due to the location of these entities’ servers, this data may be transmitted, stored and processed in third countries. These entities, however, guarantee an adequate level of data protection.
Our IT systems are serviced by an external specialized entity. When providing services to us, it may have access to your personal data.
Some of the operations described above involve sending your personal data to so-called third countries (outside the European Economic Area) where GDPR does not apply. However, this always happens based on the legal instruments provided for in the GDPR, guaranteeing adequate protection of your rights and freedoms. Detailed information in this regard can be found in the privacy policies posted by providers on their websites.
We entrust the processing of personal data to:
Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited (Google Analytics)

We collect your personal data primarily to the extent necessary for the conclusion and performance of the agreement. Some data is also necessary for us to fulfill the obligations arising from the law (tax regulations, accounting regulations). Failure to provide your data will, unfortunately, prevent the conclusion and implementation of the agreement.
Failure to provide personal data required to perform online payments will prevent the service provider from carrying out the payment process, which will make the performance of the agreement impossible. As a result, you will have to choose a different payment method.
