  • the right to appeal against the processing of your personal data, to ask us to restrict processing or to request transferability of your personal data;

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Our legal basis for the collection and use of the personal data listed above is dependent on the personal data in question and the specific context in which it was collected.

However, we would normally only collect your personal data (1) if we require such to enter into or execute an agreement with you, for example when you buy our products, (2) if processing is in our legitimate interest and your rights do not supersede this interest, for example in order to match our marketing to you, or (3) if we have acquired your permission to this end. In some cases we may also be legally obliged to collect your personal data, or we may need your personal data for another purpose in order to protect your vital interests or those of others.

If we ask you to provide us with personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation or to execute an agreement with you, we will explain the purpose and inform you on whether or not the provision of your personal data is mandatory (and what the possible consequences of not providing your personal data might be).

If we collect and use your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests (or those of third parties), these interests are generally related to: managing our platform and the communication with you insofar as this is necessary in order to provide you with our services, responding to your queries, improving our platform, marketing activities, or in view of detecting or preventing illegal activities. We may also have other legitimate interests, in which case we will inform you on what these legitimate interests are.

If we collect sensitive information on you, such as information about your health (including your pregnancy status). we will ask for your express permission for the processing of this information.

If you have any questions or would like more information on the legal basis used for the collection and use of your personal data, please contact us via the contact details below.

Data retention

We retain the personal data collected from you insofar we can justify a permanent, legal reason for this, for example to provide a service requested by you, or to store your information for future marketing purposes or to comply with applicable laws or tax-related or accounting requirements.

If we cannot justify a legitimate business-related reason for the processing of your personal data, we will remove or anonymise this data. If this is not possible (for example because your personal data are stored in backup archives), we will securely store your personal data and refrain from further processing until such time removal is possible.

Children

It is our policy that visitors to our website who are younger than 16 years of age (or the applicable age of majority in the event this is higher in a certain country), are not permitted to post or divulge information to our website without parental permission. You are required to supervise your children’s online activities and for this purpose, you may use tools for parental supervision (available from online services and software providers) that help to offer a child-friendly internet environment. The website is not intended for children younger than 13 years of age. We do not purposefully collect personally identifiable data from children younger than 13 years of age. If it becomes apparent that we have obtained personally identifiable data from a child younger than 13 years of age, we will remove this data.
