What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
To place an order on our website, you will need to provide us with the following information:
• First & last name
• Home & invoice address
• Telephone number
• IP address
• E-mail address
• Date of birth
This data is required to accomplish the delivery. Additionally, when you place an order, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address. Based on this information, we can optimise your online experience and simultaneously protect our online environment.
Purpose of data collection
We collect and store account-related data for the following purposes:
a. Carry out our obligations arising from any contracts between you and us, and to provide you with the information, products, and services that you request from us;
b. Set up, manage, and contact you about your account and orders;
c. Carry out market research and analyses;
d. Confirm your age and identity, and to identify and prevent fraud.
With your explicit permission, we may send you newsletters about our store, new products, and other updates. We send newsletters based on expressed consent.
Purpose of data collection
The collected data is used to personalise our emails, including your name to provide more personal content;
You may withdraw your consent at any time by using the link provided in the newsletter.
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery, or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collection of this information to use for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
Newsletter consent and the associated data remains relevant as long as our customers are registered for the newsletter. Periodically (every month), however, we perform a relevance check. Registered customers (and their personal information) will be deleted whenever customers do not respond to our request. Furthermore, our newsletter communication consists of an opt-out function. Consumers can withdraw their consent with the use of this opt-out function.
SECTION 6 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
Third-party services are required to fulfill transactions and perform our services. In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend you read their privacy policies, so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So, if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party, your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in
which that service provider or its facilities are located.
Web analysis service (anonymised data)
On this website, we integrated a component of a web analysis service (with the anonymizer function). Web analysis can be defined as the collection, gathering, and analysis of data regarding the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimisation of a website and to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
In order to complete deliveries, we make use of a courier service. This courier service performs the shipping between our company and the consumer’s address. In order to complete these logistics, the company requires access to information about the consumer’s name and address.
At ProviThor, we use external payment services to fulfill transactions (e.g. credit card payments).
