Sensitive Data refers to data that includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data. We do not collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.
How do we collect personal data?
We may collect data about you when you provide the data directly to us (e.g., by filling in forms on Our Sites or by sending us direct emails). We may also collect certain data from you via cookies and similar technologies while you use Our Sites, once you’ve agreed to them or failed to disagree.
We may receive data from third parties such as analytics providers (e.g., Google) based outside the EU; advertising networks (e.g., Facebook) based outside the EU; search information providers (e.g., Google) based outside the EU; and providers of technical, payment, and delivery services (e.g., data brokers or aggregators).
What about children’s data?
Our Sites are not intended for or targeted at children under 13 years of age, and we do not knowingly or intentionally collect information about children under 13 years of age. If you believe that we have collected information about a child under 13 years of age, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject [CHILD DATA] so that we may delete the information.
Why do we need your personal data?

How do we protect your personal data?
Any personal data received will only be used to fill your order (Store Billing / PayPal / Mobilpay) or to communicate with you if you subscribed to our newsletter. We use a third-party service provider to manage credit card processing. This service provider is not permitted to store, retain, or use information you provide except for the sole purpose of credit/debit card processing on our behalf. We do not store credit card details nor do we share financial details with any third parties.
We have put in place the appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being altered, disclosed, or accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorised way. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who have a business need to know such data. These third parties include:
- Service providers who provide IT and system administration services.
- Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers
- Government bodies that require us to report processing activities.
- Third parties such as copywriters, customer support and virtual assistants.
- Third parties to whom we sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets.
We require all third parties to whom we transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system.
If you allow cookies to be used, your personal information may be stored by third parties such as Google AdSense, Google Analytics, Hotjar, HubSpot, and Mailchimp.
In regards to Session Cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser – they usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page, but they do not collect any personal data from your computer.

Persistent Cookies can be read by the websites that created them when you visit those websites again. We use persistent cookies for Google Analytics. The third party analytics companies we work with may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other websites and/or other online products and services. Their collection and use of information is subject to their own privacy policies.
How do you deal with third-party links?
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on Our Sites. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies; therefore, we have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of Our Sites and welcome any feedback about the third-party sites we associate with.
