MARKETING

General
Insofar as you have given us your separate consent to process your data for marketing and advertising purposes, we are entitled to contact you for these purposes via the communication channels you have given your consent. 

You may give us your consent in a number of ways including by selecting a box on a form where we seek your permission to send you marketing information, or sometimes your consent is implied from your interactions or contractual relationship with us. Where your consent is implied, it is on the basis that you would have a reasonable expectation of receiving a marketing communication based on your interactions or contractual relationship with us.

Direct Marketing generally takes the form of email or SMS but may also include other less traditional or emerging channels. These forms of contact will be managed by us, or by our contracted service providers. Every directly addressed marketing sent or made by us or on our behalf will include a means by which you may unsubscribe or opt-out.

SMS and other Mobile Messages
We may also send promotional messages in various formats including mobile to advertise and promote our business and services and may include promotions, specials, and other marketing offers. Mobile messages may be sent using automated technology, including an autodialer, automated system, or automatic telephone dialing system. Our message frequency will vary but will not exceed 5 messages per Week (excluding appointment reminders). 

You agree that we may send you messages regarding the foregoing topics or any topic and that promotional messages and/or calls may be made or placed using different telephone numbers or shortcodes. We do not charge for mobile messages sent but you are responsible for any message and data rates imposed by your mobile provider, as standard data and message rates may apply for SMS and MMS alerts.

Opt-In
By providing your mobile phone number to us, you are voluntarily opting in and you agree to receive recurring mobile or WhatsApp messages from us at the mobile phone number associated with your opt-in. You agree that any mobile phone number you provide to us is a valid mobile phone number of which you are the owner or authorized user. If you change your mobile phone number or are no longer the owner or authorized user of the mobile phone number, you agree to promptly notify us. 

Opt-Out and Support
You may opt out at any time. If you wish to opt-out and stop receiving calls from us please tell us on the phone directly and if you no longer agree to receive mobile messages from us, reply STOP, QUIT, CANCEL, OPT-OUT, and/or UNSUBSCRIBE to any mobile message from us. You may continue to receive text messages for a short period while we process your request, and you may receive a one-time opt-out confirmation message. You understand and agree that the foregoing is the only reasonable method of opting out. For support, reply HELP to any mobile message from us.

Affiliate Marketing

You will never be charged a fee through one of our affiliate links, however, you may get a discounted rate for the relevant affiliate's services and we will make a small commission. Our editorial content is not influenced by our affiliate partnerships.

 

ADVERTISING

We would like to show you interesting advertising outside of our website and use various third-party tools and cookies for this purpose. These collect and process information about your activities on our website - for example, which products you are interested in or which pages you visit. By knowing what you are looking for and how you use our website, we can adapt our advertising to your needs. And thus increase the likelihood that you will also be shown suitable and interesting advertising outside our website.

We also analyze this data to evaluate the relevance of the advertisements and to optimize the advertisements for you. Through the tools, your browser regularly establishes a connection to the server of the tool provider when you visit our website. For some tools, we have no direct influence on what data is processed by the providers. The following personal data may be processed by third-party providers i) HTTP header information (e.g., IP address, web browser, website URL, date and time); ii) measuring pixel-specific data (e.g., pixel ID and cookie ID); and iii) additional information about visits to our website (e.g., orders placed, products clicked on). The legal bases for processing are our legitimate interest and your consent in case of cookies. For further information, please refer to our Cookie Policy.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA

General
We are present on social media (currently Facebook and Instagram, YouTube (Google LLC), TikTok, X, and Pinterest) and if you contact or connect with us via social media websites, we and the relevant social media website are jointly responsible for the processing of your data and enter into a so-called joint controller agreement. The legal basis is our legitimate interest, your consent, or, in some cases, the initiation of a contract. 

When you visit our profiles and interact with us and others
When you visit our social media profiles, we, as the operator of the profile, process your actions and interactions with our profile (e.g., the content of your messages, inquiries, posts, or comments that you send to us or leave on our profile or when you like or share our posts) as well as your publicly viewable profile data (e.g., your name and profile picture). 

Which Personal Data from your profile is publicly viewable depends on your profile settings, which you can adjust yourself in the settings of your social media account.

Please take care not to transmit or share sensitive data or confidential information (e.g., application documents, bank or payment data) via social media platforms; we recommend that you use a more secure means of transmission (e.g. e-mail).

 

PRINCIPLES OF PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA

Storage and Retention
As far as necessary, we process and store your Personal Data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes, for example, the initiation and execution of a contract.

In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations, which result from the minimum statutory retention periods in accordance with California’s Commercial Law and Fiscal Code, among others. The retention and documentation periods specified vary between two to ten years. 

Security
Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data, or contact requests that you send to us. We have also implemented numerous security measures (“technical and organizational measures”) for example encryption or need-to-know access, to ensure the most complete protection of Personal Data processed through our website. 

Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. Databases or data sets that include Personal Data may be breached inadvertently or through wrongful intrusion. Upon becoming aware of a data breach, we will notify all affected individuals whose Personal Data may have been compromised as expeditiously as possible after which the breach was discovered.

Special Category Data
Unless specifically required when using our services and explicit consent is obtained for that service, we do not process special category data. 

Automated decision-making
Automated decision-making is the process of making a decision by automated means without any human involvement. Automated decision-making including profiling does not take place. 

Do Not Sell
We do not sell your Personal Data. 

Sharing and Disclosure
We will not disclose or otherwise distribute your Personal Data to third parties unless this is a) necessary for the performance of our services including our shipping forwarder, b) you have consented to the disclosure, c) or if we are legally obliged to do so e.g., by court order or if this is necessary to support criminal or legal investigations or other legal investigations or other legal proceedings; or proceedings at home or abroad or to fulfill our legitimate interests. 

International Transfer
We may transfer your Personal Data to other companies as necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. In order to provide adequate protection for your Personal Data when it is transferred, we have contractual arrangements regarding such transfers. We take all reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect the Personal Data we transfer.

If you believe that the information we hold about you is inaccurate or that we are no longer entitled to use it and want to request its rectification, deletion, or object to its processing, please do so by contacting us. 

Withdrawing your consent
You can revoke the consent you have given at any time by contacting us. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

In the event that you wish to make a Data Subject Access Request, you may inform us in writing of the same. We will respond to requests regarding access and correction as soon as reasonably possible. Should we not be able to respond to your request within thirty (30) days, we will tell you why and when we will be able to respond to your request.

Complaint to a supervisory authority

The competent data protection authority in California is: The California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA), 2101 Arena Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95834, www.cppa.ca.gov We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the CPPA.

 

USA SPECIFIC PROVISIONS

The following applies to all users located elsewhere in the United States. While we understand and appreciate that privacy and consumer data protection laws differ as they are subject to each state's legislature and that no data protection framework similar to CCPA or GDPR exists on a federal level, we are committed to following and applying for your state relevant privacy rules and regulations. As of the day of drafting, the following other states had enacted privacy and consumer data protection laws:

· Colorado Privacy Act (“CPA”);
· Connecticut Data Privacy Act (“CTDPA”);
· Delaware Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”);
· Indiana Consumer Data Protection Act (“ICDPA”);
· Iowa Consumer Data Protection Act (“ICDPA”);
· Montana Consumer Data Privacy Act (“MCDPA”);
· Oregon Consumer Privacy Act (“OCPA”);
· Tennessee Information Protection Act (“TIPA”);
· Texas Data Privacy and Security Act (“TDPSA”);
· Utah Consumer Privacy Act (“UCPA”); and
· Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (“VCDPA”).

Further and under consideration of the similarities of the above provisions, no conflict should arise pursuing a uniform approach in granting all users in the USA the same rights and privileges as set out above. However, should ambiguity occur the most stringent provision is chosen to ensure the most comprehensive approach when it comes to protecting your Personal Data.

Further, the following also apply: 

i) COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of Personal Data from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

ii) CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. To be in accordance with CAN-SPAM, we agree to the following: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us, and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.

iii) Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)
If we process your Personal Data for the purpose of sending you SMS marketing communications, you may manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications from us by replying or texting ‘STOP’ if you receive our SMS communications. In this respect, the data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our consent in personalized direct advertising per SMS.

iv) Controls For Do-Not-Track Features
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track ('DNT') feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, our website does not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this policy.

v) Right to complain
Finally, in regard to the right to complain to a supervisory authority. You have the right to lodge a complaint about our processing of Personal Data with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. Users based in the above-mentioned States may lodge a complaint with the relevant district attorney or attorney general office. However, we would appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns before you contact any supervisory authority.

 

CHANGES

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the effective date. This Privacy Policy was last updated on Friday, March 10th, 2024.

 

QUESTIONS

If you feel that the above is not sufficient or if you have any queries as regards the collection, processing or use of your information we are looking forward to hearing from you. We will make every effort to reply as soon as possible and take into consideration any suggestions from your end.
