How do we use this information

Depending on how you use our site, how you interact with us, and what you allow us to access, including the purpose for which we collect these information:

  • To be able to place your order and keep your account on our site.
  • Handling and answering questions and complaints that come to our customer service.
  • To personalize the site according to your wishes and display the content that we think you are most interested in, based on your information, your purchase history and your browsing history.
  • To improve and maintain the quality of our site, and to monitor its use.
  • For market research, we can, for example, contact you for feedback on our products.
  • To send advertising and direct mail in those cases where you have approved this or otherwise are allowed to do so.
  • For security reasons, for example, to investigate fraud and, if necessary, to protect us or our subcontractors.
  • To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

We refer to the following legal bases, under the Data Protection Act, regarding our right to handle your personal data:

  • Because it is necessary to handle personal data in order to establish an agreement with you, or to prepare an agreement with you, for example, we use your personal information to make payment and make purchases when you place an order with us.
  • Since we have received your approval, for example, when you contact our customer service, when you add information about you to your profile or when you authorize us to send advertising to you.
  • Because it is in our legal interest as an e-store to maintain and provide our services. We always want to know more about our customers' needs and desires in order to offer the best possible products and customer experiences. We use information about you to customise your experience of our site, to make it more interesting and relevant in terms of products and offers for you.
  • On our site you may be offered to add information about your pet, including information about your pet's breed, weight, name and activity level. We process this information with care, but information about your pet is not considered personal information.

Marketing

We love to communicate with our customers and therefore, depending on your advertising requirements, we may use your personal information to send advertisements via e-mail, telephone or mail. Some of these mailings may be customized for you, based on your browsing history, purchase history or other information we have stored about you.

If you no longer wish to receive advertising and/or offers from us (or vice versa again!) you can notify us at any time by contacting us (see details below) or clicking on "unsubscribe" in one of our newsletters. If you unsubscribe from our newsletter, we may still contact you with service information (such as order and delivery confirmation and information about your rights).

You can also be exposed to advertisements for us on other sites as well as on social media. These ads may be customised for you through the collection of data via cookies (which records your browsing history, enabling us to create ads for people who visited our site). If you see ads on social media, it may be due to collaborations with users on social media with followers who match the demographic profile of our customers. In some cases, that type of marketing may include sharing your email address with this network. If you no longer wish to see targeted ads, you can change the settings for cookies and privacy in your browser and on the respective site/app.

Who can access this information

We share customer personal data with subcontractors as follows:

With our subcontractors and companies that provide services to us, for example, payment processors and shipping companies.

  • With our business advisors and lawyers.
  • With subcontractors working to prevent and detect fraud.
  • With police or other government agencies, for example, to report fraud or in accordance with a mandatory request.
  • In cases where we sell any part of our business, personal information about our customers may be made visible to a potential buyer. In that case, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the buyer complies with the terms of the privacy policy.

In other contexts where we have your consent to it or otherwise by law have the right to do so.

Storage

We hire subcontractors located all around the world. Therefore your personal data may be processed in countries outside Europe, including countries where you have a lower degree of legal protection regarding your personal data than in your home country. If we submit personal information outside the European Economic Area, we will, by law, ensure that your privacy rights are adequately protected, most preferably in accordance with EU standard contractual clauses. You are welcome to contact us if you would like to know more about this protection.

We will retain your personal data for as long as we need it in accordance with the purpose stated above, which means that the duration will vary depending on your interactions with us. For example, if you made a purchase with us, we will retain your information for as long as required for billing, tax and insurance reasons. We may also retain correspondence with you (for example, if you have made a complaint about a product) for as long as necessary to protect us from legal requirements. When we no longer need to save information, we will delete it. Please note that we will save your e-mail address even if you unsubscribe from our newsletter, to ensure that we do not send the newsletter to your address in the future.

Security

We ensure that data that leaves our site is encrypted. This process involves converting information or data into code to prevent unauthorized access. Our site follows these rules and uses secure methods to ensure the protection of all credit card transactions. Encryption methods such as SSL are used to protect personal data sent to or from our site through secure communication channels. We do everything possible to constantly protect personal data on our site, but we cannot guarantee the protection and integrity of data on our site.
