The platform is designed to ensure stability, based on state-of-the-art solutions. We use the following measures to ensure that shopping on our platform is secure:
We also take care of your personal data. We are fully compliant with the GDPR. We carefully follow the decisions and guidelines issued by the Personal Data Protection Office (PDPO) and the EDPB (European Data Protection Board) and then verify and, if necessary, adjust our actions. All Allegro employees undergo training in the field of security policy and GDPR rules. We additionally carry out audits to verify compliance with the provisions of the GDPR. The audit carried out between September and December 2020 did not reveal any significant shortcomings.
We keep a record of all security incidents involving data, including personal data. The most serious incident reported to the Personal Data Protection Office in 2020 was the disappearance of a registered letter containing an employment contract. The sealed envelope with the documents was found in a waste paper container in the block where the addressee lives. It is possible, therefore, that someone could have accessed his personal data, including information on remuneration. In the light of the ENISA (European Union Agency for Cybersecurity) guidelines on the assessment of the risk of a breach of personal data protection that the Group follows in the event of such incidents, we were required to report the incident to the supervisory authority.
Allegro.eu is the owner of strong brands such as Allegro, Ceneo and eBilet. We constantly strive to increase their recognition among both buyers and sellers through public relations and strategic partnerships. We use both traditional and online marketing.
We make sure that our marketing messages are always clear, unambiguous and true. We also require the same from companies that advertise their goods on our platform. Everyone must comply with the Terms and Conditions of Selling and Displaying Ads on Allegro.pl (Regulamin sprzedaży i emisji reklam), and Ads Service is regulated by the Ads Service Terms and Conditions.
In 2020, Allegro.pl, Ceneo.pl and eBilet.pl were not the addressees of any fines, nor did they record any non-compliance with voluntary codes regulating the issues of marketing communication.
