WHAT DATA DO WE PROCESS?
We need the processed data for the successful processing of your inquiries or orders. These are mainly: name and surname, delivery address, billing data, e-mail address, telephone number.
Without these necessary data, it is not possible to process your inquiry or order so that it can be processed and subsequently prepared, dispatched, and delivered successfully.
We also consider the content of your purchases to be personal data (the note you enter, the items, the method of transport and payment, etc.); information regarding your complaints, the content of our communication messages; the reviews and ratings you write on products; loyalty points and their use if you are a member of a loyalty program; and other statistical data that would be meaningless without your identification using the basic data mentioned above.
ON WHAT LEGAL BASIS DO WE PROCESS PERSONAL DATA?
The legal bases we process your personal data on are:
Contract fulfillment – in the case of ordering and setting up a user account, or in the case of your participation in a consumer competition.
Consent – in particular in connection with the marketing and sending commercial communications about news and current offers or other forms of marketing. Any consent given is voluntary and can be withdrawn at any time, but this does not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal.
Our legal obligations – when storing data about you, your order, or inquiry in our accounting records or when disclosing data to governmental and other authorities that supervise or resolve disputes or enforce decisions.
Our legitimate interest – in improving and personalizing our services, certain marketing activities, or concerning security and rights protection as we have set out above. In these cases, we will always carefully consider whether the processing will constitute a disproportionate interference with your rights.

WHO PROCESSES YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND FOR WHAT PURPOSES?
Operator and intermediaries
The operator may use the services of intermediaries who carry out specific tasks on its behalf and its instructions and provide additional added value and services to customers directly or indirectly. For this purpose, they process the personal data of customers to the extent available to the controller. Intermediaries process customers’ personal data based on a contract with the operator, on the operators’ behalf, and the basis of the operators’ instructions.
The personal data processed is held by the delivery companies, suppliers of technical and software solutions of the e-shop, who provide them for the operator based on instructions and following the security documentation. Another type of intermediaries are entities that provide an evaluation of the previous purchase and the experience with it, to provide future improvements to the operator’s services.
Intermediaries are carefully selected, while they are obliged to comply with all necessary security, technical and organizational measures to provide your personal data with adequate protection.
Disclosure and transfer of personal data
As an online shop operator, we do not transfer personal data to third countries outside the European Union / European Economic Area.
We do not disclose, share or provide the personal data we process to any other entities, except in the following situations:
We disclose or make available personal data if you request us to do so. We make disclosures when you post your review, comment, or rating.
We make disclosures to third parties in the case of the delivery service you selected when you placed your order.
We may also retain your data for reasons or disclose it to others to comply with our obligations under the law, to comply with requests from governmental and other authorities, to assert our claims, or to defend ourselves in proceedings where others assert claims against us in return. The categories of third parties to whom we disclose personal data for these reasons include, for example, courts, governmental and other authorities competent to exercise control over our activities, to settle disputes or to enforce decisions, or, in this context, our legal, accounting advisors and auditors.
HOW LONG DO WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We keep personal data related to your user account while your account is set up, as we must be able to process your orders or inquiries and provide you with the corresponding services. If you do not have an account (you did not create one when you placed your order or inquiry), we will retain your personal data relating to the order or inquiry you have placed for as long as necessary, for example for tax reasons.
If the customer has not withdrawn his consent to be informed about current promotional offers via the relevant communication channels (in particular by e-mail), we process his personal data for these purposes until his consent is withdrawn or his registration is terminated.
WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS CONCERNING YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Right to withdraw consent
As a data subject, you have the right to withdraw any of the consents granted during the registration at any time. If the withdrawal of consent concerns data necessary for the provision of a specific service (e.g. name, surname, date of birth in the loyalty program for the application of the birthday discount), you will lose this benefit, which we will inform you about when withdrawing consent.
Right to request access to your processed personal data

Requests for the exercise of these rights by the data subject shall be fulfilled by the operator free of charge. Where the data subject’s requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular, because of their repetitive nature, the operator may either:
- charge a reasonable fee, taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or notification or of carrying out the requested action; or
- refuse to act on the request.
