Browser & Web Server
We use Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt data transmissions between your browser

eavesdropping, tampering or alteration.
We safely process your card payment(s) through the use of a secure merchant who handle the
transaction between yourself and your bank, ensuring the confidentiality and security of your
financial information. This also ensures PCI DSS compliance and our ability to provide fast,
secure transactions to our customers.
We continually monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we carry out
penetration testing to identify ways to further strengthen security. We also use hard disk
encryption, firewalls, password protections, anti-virus and access checks for our employees.
The security measures described above ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to protect
your personal information.
Other divisions/brand/entities within our group
Transfers of personal data within the group are part of our business process. Activities such as filling
an order, performing a credit check if needed, processing payment details, or servicing a customer
request may require this sharing to take place.
We also transfer limited personal data to our vendors as required, this allows them to perform
activities such as personalisation of products or direct shipping to customers.
In some circumstances, it may be necessary to cooperate with authorities in relevant countries in the case of fraud, regulatory or legal actions. We abide by those actions based on our legal review.
If you have provided consent to marketing information, you may also receive marketing information
from external companies related to the products or services you are interested in.
We sometimes share personal data with trusted partners that provide optional services. An example
of this is product and service surveys that are important to us to gather customer feedback. You are
not obligated to enter any information, as they are optional.
Under no circumstances do we permit the selling of your personal data to other organisations.
International Data Transfers
In cases where we transfer data as part of our normal business activities we will have the appropriate contractual safeguards in place, including those with our suppliers.

When We Act as a Data Controller or as a Data Processor
If you are an employee and we have a contract with your employer, we may only be a processor of
your personal data. In these cases, we forward any requests to your employer.
When we sell products through a reseller or online marketplace, again we may only be a data
processor and the seller will be the actual data controller. They will respond with respect to your data
rights. Any requests made though us will be forwarded to the relevant data controller and they will
manage all communications with you.
If the purchase is directly through us (phone, post, website) then we are the data controller and we will
respond to your request.
Under EU GDPR and UK DPA 2018 (UK GDPR), you have certain data protection rights.
Right to Information/Notification
This right provides you to ask us for information about what personal data we hold about you, how it is being processed and the reasons for that processing.
Where you have bought a product or service from any of our resellers, or on their online stores, they will have your customer details, so any notifications or access to data will be managed by them.
If we ever experience a data leak that could have significant negative consequences for your personal privacy rights and freedoms, then you as a customer will be personally informed of the circumstances and actions we are currently taking and will take in the future.
Right to access This right provides you with the ability to get access to your personal data that is being
processed. You can request to see or view your own personal data, as well as to request
copies of the personal data if you do not already have a copy, or you do not know it. You
may also use a third party to make the request, and we will ask for authorisation proof
(power of attorney etc.) if needed.
Right to rectification This right provides you with the ability to ask for modifications to your personal data in case
you believe that the personal data is inaccurate. We are happy to do this via our customer
services team or via the Data Privacy Office contact information.
Right to withdraw consent This right provides you with the ability to withdraw a previously given consent for processing of your personal data. The request requires us to stop the processing of that data for that
specific purpose in the future. Mainly, for us, this applies to marketing activities and if you ask
us to stop sending you particular or all product or services information, we will do so.
Right of Erasure/Right to be forgotten This right allows you the ability to ask for the deletion of your data. This will generally apply to situations where we no longer have a customer relationship with you and the data has not
been deleted already. In some cases, we have a legal obligation to keep certain data
(invoices, financial records etc.) .and therefore this right is not an absolute right.
Right to object This right provides you with the ability to object to the processing of your personal data. For example; you can also ask for your data not to be processed for scientific or historical research purposes (if relevant) unless it is necessary for public interest reasons.
However, this is also not an absolute right, as we may have legal, regulatory, contractual, or legitimate interest processing reasons to consider also.
Right to object to automated processing/automated decision You can also object to a decision that is made automatically, and to have that decision reviewed by a person. This is usually used for credit agreements if you believe that the decision does not account for unique personal circumstances.
Right to Data Portability If you have consented or contracted to provide us personal information and our processing is automated, then you can ask for that data to be made portable. However, at present there is no standard on which this portability occurs to allow easy transfer and we do not have partners that would use that data in this way.
Escalation to Your Supervisory Authority
In the event that you are unhappy with our processing of your personal data, you also have the right to lodge a complaint, at any time, with the relevant supervisory authority in the country where you live, or as below:
If you live outside the Netherlands or the United Kingdom, your complaint will remain on file within
your country, but will be addressed by one of the data authorities listed above.
Changes to this Privacy Notice
Any changes we may make to our Privacy Notice in the future will be posted on this webpage and,
where appropriate, notified to you. The new terms may be displayed on-screen and you may be
required to read and accept them to continue your use of our Website.
