Information that you give us through registration, when you purchase an item, enter information we request on certain pages or when you contact us by phone or email. This may include your date of birth, name, email address, phone number, transaction details, bank details, payment information (such as your credit or debit card number and other card information, as well as billing and shipping details) and other information we may ask in connection with promotional offers or other marketing activities.

This may comprise your name, geographic location, age, shopping habits, user-generated content (such as blogs and social media postings), social media username or other social media profile information (such as number of followers), in each case as permitted by law. We rely on the lawful basis for processing (which could be the consent you give to third parties) prior to us receiving that information for processing.

3. How we share your information?
We may share your personal information with our affiliated companies and with reputable service providers that assist us in matters such as warehousing and delivery, credit card and data processing, marketing and advertising, IT hosting and market research. We won’t otherwise sell or distribute your personal data unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
Please be aware that our site includes social network plugins, so certain data (your current IP address, visited sites, date and time) may be forwarded to these social media services even if you are not registered with them. If you are already logged into the social media service when you click on the social media button, the social media service may also use this data to identify your user name and possibly even your real name. Unfortunately, we have no control over the extent, nature and purpose of such data processing or their privacy practices – we suggest you review the privacy statement of the social media networks in which you participate.
You can rest assured that we’ll only disclose your information for the specific purposes mentioned in section 2 and that your data security is being taken care of. These third parties are bound to process your personal data only on our strict instructions and when they can offer adequate technical and organizational measures to protect it.
We may also disclose your personal information as necessary to protect the security and integrity of our site in accordance with the law, in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets to a third party, or as required or authorized by law.

5. Security of data
We adopt technical and organisational measures to protect your data as comprehensively as possible. In addition to the commitment of our employees to secrecy and a careful selection and monitoring of our service providers, we also secure our operating environment adequately.
To protect your data against unwanted access, we use data encryption. Data collected from this site will be passed between your computer and our server and vice versa via the internet using 256-Bit TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption. We will not use encryption though if you exchange only generally available information with us. In order to secure the transmission of sensitive bank and credit card details and to protect data from abusive use we utilize in transit encryption (SSL, Secure Socket Layer). Data stored in our database is also encrypted using 256-Bit AES encryption.
6. Your rights (and how to exercise them)
As a user of our site, you have the right to request details of personal information which we hold about you as well as the purpose of its processing (keeping in mind we have outlined in section 2 the lawful basis we rely on to process your information). You have the right to object to this processing if you wish, but please bear in mind that if you object this may affect our ability to carry out tasks for your benefit. In addition, you have a right to demand the correction of incorrect data and the deletion of that which is inappropriate or no longer needed.
If you are seeking to exercise any of your statutory rights, please contact us through this site. A response to your request will be provided in writing within a reasonable period (one month in principle, but we will inform you should we need more time to process your request). We expect that our procedures will deal fairly and promptly with your request. However, if you remain dissatisfied, you have the right to lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority.
Many countries have laws and regulations to protect the online privacy of children (such as the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act in the United States. We do not knowingly collect or maintain personally-identifying information from anyone under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law. Any person who provides personally-identifying information through the site represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If we learn that personally-identifying information has been collected from a user under 13 years of age on or through the site, then we will take the appropriate steps to cause this information to be deleted. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a member of the site or has otherwise transferred personally-identifying information to the site, please contact us to have that child's account terminated and information deleted.
