Using Personal Information

We use your personal information to provide our services to you. These include: Offering products for sale, processing payments, shipping and fulfilling your order and keeping you up to date with new products, services and offers.



Lawful basis

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), if you are a resident of the European Economic Area ("EEA"), we process your personal data on the following legal bases:

Your consent;
The performance of a contract between you and the Website;
Compliance with our legal obligations;
To protect your vital interests;
To perform a task carried out in the public interest;
For our legitimate interests which do not override your fundamental rights and freedoms.

Retention

If you place an order through the website, we will retain your personal data for our records unless and until you ask us to delete it. For more information about your right to erasure, please see the "Your rights" section below.

Automated decision making

If you are a resident of the EEA, you have the right to object to processing based solely on automated decisions (including profiling) where those decisions have a legal effect on you or otherwise significantly affect you.

We make fully automated decisions that have a legal or otherwise significant impact on the use of customer data.

Our processor Shopify uses limited automated decision making to prevent fraud that does not have a legal or otherwise significant impact on you.

Services that include elements of automated decision making include:

Temporary denylist of IP addresses associated with repeated failed transactions. This denylist remains for a small number of hours.
Temporary denylist of credit cards associated with denylated IP addresses. This denylist will remain for a small number of days.

If you are a resident of the EEA, you have the right to access the personal data we hold about you, port it to a new service and request that your personal data be corrected, updated or deleted. If you wish to exercise these rights, please contact us using the contact information below

Your personal data will initially be processed in Ireland and then transferred outside Europe for storage and further processing, including to Canada and the USA. For more information on how data transfers comply with the GDPR, please see Shopify's GDPR whitepaper: https://help.shopify.com/de/manual/your-account/privacy/GDPR.

How long a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a "persistent" or a "session" cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most cookies we use are persistent and expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they were downloaded to your device.

You can control and manage cookies in a number of ways. Please note that removing or blocking cookies may negatively impact your user experience and parts of our website may no longer be fully accessible.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can choose whether or not to accept cookies via your browser controls. You can often find these in the "Tools" or "Settings" menu of your browser. For more information on changing your browser settings or blocking, managing or filtering cookies, please refer to your browser's help file or websites such as www.allaboutcookies.org.

Also note that blocking cookies may not completely prevent us from sharing information with third parties such as our advertising partners. Follow the instructions in the "Behavioural Advertising" section above to exercise your rights or opt out of certain uses of your information by these parties.

Do Not Track

Please note that we do not change our data collection and use practices when we detect such a signal from your browser, as there is no consistent industry understanding of how to respond to "Do Not Track" signals.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect, for example, changes in our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.
