What Personal Information About Customers Does our company Gather and Use?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your shopping experience. We use the information to handle orders, deliver products and services, process payments (including necessary checks in relation to purchases on account), communicate with you about orders, products, services and promotional offers, update our records and generally maintain your accounts with us, display content such as wish lists and customer reviews and recommend merchandise and services that might be of interest to you. We also use this information to improve our store and platform, prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our Web site and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf.
Here are the types of information we gather:
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. Click here to see examples of what we collect. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies" and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our Web site or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of our company on other Web sites. Click here to see examples of the information we receive.
When you download or use apps created by our company or its subsidiaries and, where applicable, have requested or consented to location services, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as search results, and other personalised content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services. For more information about how to do this, go here.
To help us make E-Mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open E-Mail from our company if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive E-Mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Customer Communication Preferences.
Information From Other Sources:
We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. Go here to see examples of the information we receive. We reserve the right to obtain information on your payment behaviour from third parties (e.g. mail-order companies, credit agencies) to offer you certain payment methods (e.g. payment on account) or other financial services.
What About Cookies?
Does our company Share the Information it Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We shares customer information only as described below and with our company and the subsidiaries which our company controls and that are either subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
Affiliated Businesses we Do Not Control:
We work closely with affiliated businesses. In some cases, these businesses operate stores or sell offerings to you. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services or sell product lines jointly with or on behalf of these businesses. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
Third Party Service Providers:
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and E-Mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by applicable data protection laws.
Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of our customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address or any other personally identifiable information. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your Customer Communication Preferences.
As we continue to develop our business, we or other subsidiaries controlled by our company, might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that our company or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of our company and Others:
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and Sale and other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of our company, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in a way that is contrary to the commitments made in this Privacy Notice.
With Your Consent:
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information. Whenever we transfer personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area in the course of sharing information as set out above, we will ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by the German laws on data protection.
How Secure is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers or account numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number and account number to the appropriate credit card company or bank during order processing.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
