Who we are
The website available at https://ispan.waw.pl/default/ is the official website of the Institute of Slavic Studies, Polish Academy of Sciences (hereinafter referred to as the ISS PAS website).
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Various forms are available on the ISS PAS website, some of which are launched occasionally. In any case, the ISS PAS website registers the IP number of the person completing the form and requires an e-mail address. Some forms require additionally the first and last name and allow entering other personal data (e.g., address of residence).
If you have an account and log into the ISS PAS website, the website will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close the browser.
When you log in, the website will also set up several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for 2 days and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, the login details will persist for 2 weeks. The login cookies will be removed upon logging out.
Several other cookies may be installed on your device, which are associated with storing the language settings of the ISS PAS website and browsing the content. These cookies do not contain personal data.
Embedded content from other websites
The ISS PAS website may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website.
IP addresses are used by Google Analytics, but the ISS PAS website instructs this service to mask IPs (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2905384?hl=en).
For security and auditing purposes, a record of all actions and changes within the ISS PAS website will be recorded in audit/security logs. The logs also include the IP address from which you accessed the ISS PAS website.

How long we retain your data

How we protect your data and what data breach procedures we have in place
