I. such disclosure is revealed to you when you submit your Personal Data;

II. such disclosure is required by law or by an order of a court of competent jurisdiction or in case we have the good-faith belief that disclosure is necessary in order to protect or defend the rights or property of us;

III. such disclosure is necessary for service providers retained by us to perform functions on its behalf or to provide services to us, such as advertising, promotion and fulfillment services, market research, auditing, website administration, data processing, information technology and office services, provided such organization or individual does not collect, use or disclose the Personal Data for any purpose other than to perform such functions or provide services to us;

5 Adults only

Neither our website nor our services are intended for use by minors (people below the age of 18 years of age) without their legal representative’s consent. We will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information submitted by minors if the respective legal representative has not allowed the collection of said information. Upon notification of our collection of personal data of a minor without the respective representative’s consent, we will promptly delete such information.

6 Other sites

This Privacy Policy applies to our website and our services only. Despite the integration of plug-ins (e.g. Facebook “Like”-Button, Instagram “Follow”-Button” and Twitter “Follow”-Button) and links to third-party websites, our Privacy Policy does not apply to your interactions with other websites, even if you find such links on our website or if we send you such links no matter via which communication channel. We also do not exercise control over the sites displayed as search results, sites that include our applications, products and/or services, or links from within our various services. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit Personal Data from you. These other sites maintain their own policies regarding cookies and the collection and use of Personal Data. It is up to you to review those policies yourself.

7 Security

I. Protecting your Personal Data is important to us. We use the industry standard technology to protect the security of your Personal Data. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet and via mobile communications networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result thereof, while we are committed to protecting your Personal Data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or through us.

II. At this moment, the Personal Data we collect is stored on computers located within the European Economic Area (EEA). For the purposes of processing as described in this Privacy Policy, we may transfer the Personal Data to other countries that may be located outside the EEA or outside your home country and whose data protection laws may differ from the EEA or from the jurisdiction in which you live. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the Personal Data that are equivalent to those that apply in the EEA or in the country in which you live. In addition, if you use our website and/or our services while you are outside the EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with our website and/or our services. By agreeing to this Privacy Policy, you also consent to the transfer of your Personal Data outside the EEA or the country you live in for the purposes as described.

8 Accessing your Personal Data

I. You have the right to access and rectification of the Personal Data that you have provided to us or to change your preferences. You can send an e-mail to the address mentioned below or on our website and state whether you want your Personal Data removed from our database, to opt-out of communications from us or to opt-out of communications from third party marketers or business partners (right to be forgotten). Additionally, upon request, we may also provide you with a (PDF) file containing all Personal Data we have of you but only such data that is meant to be re-used for purposes other than usage purposes solely applicable in regard to our services (right to data portability). Deleting your Personal Data or otherwise opting-out of receipt of communications from us or third parties will delete the data only in our database for purposes of managing future communications from us and you and/or third parties. These deletions will not delete Personal Data already collected that may have already been shared with third parties, all as provided above in this Privacy Policy. You will need to contact third parties that may contact you directly to delete your Personal Data that they may be using to contact you.

II. You have, at any time moving forward and in any case, the right to lodge a complaint with your respective applicable (national) data protection authority if you think that we have violated your rights and/or are not in compliance with any applicable Personal Data protection regulation.
