Disclosure of Data

We do not disclose personal data to anyone except if we believe it is necessary to comply with law, enforce our policies, or protect our or others’ legal rights. This does not include trusted third parties (i.e. data processors) which help us to operate our business and services as long as they agree to keep personal data confidential.

Security of Data

The security of your data is important to us, but please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.

Both technical and organisational measures are used in the Company for protection of personal data. Data are stored securely, and can be accessed by a limited number of persons.

Cross-border transmission of personal data. Personal data are processed in the territory of the European Union / European Economic Area. It may be necessary in some cases to transmit personal data to the recipients located outside of the territory of the European Union / European Economic Area. The Company takes steps to protect personal data in such cases and can rely on the adequacy decision of the European Commission, which means that, in view of the European Union, the laws and agreements in that country ensure adequate protection of personal data. In the absence of the adequacy decision of the European Commission, the Company (as the data controller) or its data processor may transfer personal data to a third country or international organisation outside of the territory of the European Union / European Economic Area only if the data importer has provided appropriate safeguards, and on condition that enforceable data subject rights and effective legal remedies for data subjects are available.

Service Providers

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Online Shop (further in the text referred to as Service Providers or data processors), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service related services or to assist us in analysing how our Online Shop is used.

Your Rights

As a data subject, you have the following rights:

  • the right to receive information if we process your personal data, and if so, the right to access such personal data
  • the right to contact us with a request of rectifying inaccurate personal data
  • the right to have the personal data erased, if you believe that there is no need for the Company to keep them, or if you had given consent and then decided to withdraw it. The request may be granted only if it is well-grounded, except in direct marketing or cookie cases where you have full discretion to revoke your consent. Also, this right may not apply where the processing is related to legal obligations, or establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims
  • the right to receive the personal data or transfer them to another entity (the so-called right of data portability). This right applies where personal data are processed by automated means, based on your request
  • the right to restrict processing of the personal data in certain circumstances. It means that we will continue storage of your personal data, but we will be unable to process them temporarily. (For instance, that may be necessary if inaccurate data are found. It is likely that you would not want data processed until they are rectified)
  • the right to object to processing of personal data if the processing is carried out based on legitimate interests of the Company or third parties. You may exercise this right if you believe that the legitimate interests of processing such personal data pursued by the Company are overridden by your personal interests.
  • the right to withdraw your consent to processing of personal data for direct marketing purpose.

 

If you wish to exercise these rights, you may contact the Company in writing, including electronically.

In order to implement the rights of a data subject, your identity needs to be authenticated. If your identity is not authenticated, it is impossible to make sure, if a request is filed by the same person, whose personal data is processed. Therefore, we may be unable to implement your data subject’s rights.

We may refuse to examine your request on the implementation of the rights or we may charge a fee for this service, if your request is clearly unjustified or filed in excess, also in other cases provided in the legal law.

If you believe that the manner of processing of personal data at the Company is inconsistent with the effective legislation, you have the right to contact the local data protection authority.
