The legal basis for processing your personal information included in the form is implied from the fact that you have sent a request to contact you by phone (Article 6 Section 1 Item a of GDPR). In such cases, information provided by you will only be processed for the purpose of such contact.

Information provided by you will be processed for a period required to establish and maintain contact with you and removed from our database afterwards, unless you opt for your data to be processed for marketing purposes. Such consent will result in your personal information being transferred to our marketing database and processed there until we decide to delete this database or until you choose to opt out of marketing communication, which will erase your personal information from our database.

Reports. To receive a report, you have to use a special online form, which is part of our website, and provide us with the following information:

  • first and family name,
  • email address.

The submitted form will be stored in the MailChimp database.

The legal basis for processing your personal information included in the form is implied from the fact that you have requested a report to be sent to your email address. In such cases, information provided by you will only be processed for the purpose of sending such report to you.

Prezydent powołał nowych ministrów

Zgodnie z wcześniejszymi, nieoficjalnymi doniesieniami: Ministerstwo Rodziny, Pracy i Polityki Społecznej obejmie Bożena Borys-Szopa, Ministerstwo Spraw Wewnętrznych i Administracji - Elżbieta Witek, Ministerstwo Finansów - Marian Banaś, a Ministerstwo Edukacji Narodowej - Dariusz Piontkowski. Na wicepremiera awansował Jacek Sasin, a szef Kancelarii Premiera Michał Dworczyk wszedł w skład Rady Ministrów. Ministrem bez teki został też Michał Woś. Rekonstrukcja rządu nie oznacza radykalnej zmiany układu sił w obozie władzy, równoważy natomiast wpływy różnych środowisk przed wyborami parlamentarnymi.
