What personal data we collect and why we collect it
While you visit our site, we’ll track:
- Products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
- Location, IP address and browser type: we’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping
- Shipping address: we’ll ask you to enter this so we can, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order
The above data is anonymised and then evaluated on a continuous basis in order to improve the website, to adapt the website to the interests of our users and to be able to remedy errors quickly. For these purposes, the legal basis for the processing of data is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.
If you actively submit data to us, for example by registering with our online shop or placing an order, we will process the data transmitted by you.
When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:
- Send you information about your account and order
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account for our store
- Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
- Improve our store offerings
- Send you marketing messages, but only if you choose to receive them
We process the above data in order to update your registration and to process your orders. The legal basis for processing this data is performance of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR.
