Feedback and contact data

Any website accessibility issues should be reported. All queries should be sent to Marcin Pietrzak at: marcin.pietrzak@opi.org. Any requests to make unavailable information available, as well as any complaints regarding inaccessibility should be submitted via e-mail to the address above.

Each person has the right to request digital access to the website, mobile application or any element thereof. It is also possible to request that information is made available with the use of an alternative access method, e.g. for reading out a document that is digitally inaccessible, describing the content of a video without audio-description etc. In his/her request, the requesting person should include his/her data, specify a website or a mobile application to which the request pertains, and indicate the preferred method of contact. If the requesting person requests that information be provided with the use of an alternative access method, they should additionally specify the preferred method.

The public entity shall fulfill the request as soon as possible, but not later than within 7 days of the date of the request. Should meeting the said deadline prove impossible, the public entity shall, without delay, notify the requesting person when it will be possible to fulfill the request – the new deadline not exceeding 2 months as from the date of the request. Should it prove impossible to ensure digital accessibility, the public entity may propose an alternative access method.

If the entity refuses to fulfill the request to ensure accessibility or an alternative information access method, the requesting person shall have the right to submit a complaint.
