Other data collection?

This data is used to create statistics and improve the quality of our website and service through the analyses of your behavior on our website.

We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you are anonymous to us. We may exceptionally use your IP addresses in cooperation with your Internet provider to identify you if we feel it is necessary to offer you a more personalized set of products and services that might interest you.

Links to other sites and tracking, comments and connection data

The sites linked to our website are developed by people over whom we exercise no control. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information and the privacy policy of the visited website will be applicable from the moment you enter the new domain. We strongly recommend you carefully read their privacy policy.

Storage, security and disclosure to third parties

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. We have taken technical and organizational measures to protect the databases in which your data is kept against unauthorized access, unauthorized use, theft or loss.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

All data is stored on our systems and is only accessible by a limited number of persons. The security measures applying to our systems are consistent with the generally accepted practice for these type of security measures applying and adopted by companies active in similar activities and of the same size as us.

Your data can also be shared with the subsidiaries who belong to our group of companies. This to keep you informed about the products and services as well as in case of non-payment to protect the interests of the group.

In addition to the disclosure elsewhere described in this policy, we may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
  • If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.
  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any contractual or legal obligation, or to protect our or other rights, property or safety. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

For the rest, we do not give the collected data to third parties, unless we explicitly state this is required for a specific action, or unless we are required to do so by law e.g. in the framework of a judicial enquiry or at the request of the competent legal authorities.
