Most of the time, your data is held within the European Union.

However, where our service providers are located in countries outside the European Union, we share some of your data in third countries, such as with third countries where the European Commission has not conducted a compliance assessment.

In this case, we take steps to ensure that such data sharing is done in compliance with the relevant regulations and that protection of your privacy and fundamental rights is guaranteed (e.g. by using the European Commission’s contractual clauses). The Data Protection Officer can, upon request, provide you with more information about the data transfer.


With the technical and organizational measures we take, we can guarantee a level of security that is in line with the risks to the rights and freedoms of natural persons with regard to the points mentioned in point 2. For this purpose, we take into account the origin, the scope, the context, the costs and the state of knowledge, the purposes of the processing, but also the identified risks.

In addition, we are up to date with the PCI DSS payment card industry security standard, which reflects our commitment to security.


Through the automated processing we use (e.g. profiling), you are subject to legal effects that affect you. This is necessary for the conclusion or performance of the contract between you and us.
This is how we can offer and carry out automated customer identification and “4 x payment”. The basis for this operation is the analysis of different variables concerning the type of products, services ordered, or customer profile.

If the risk is evaluated with these statistics as being too great (fraud/unpaid), then this payment method will not be proposed.

However, if you wish, you can obtain a human intervention even though the decisions are automated, so you can give your opinion and/or oppose the automatic decision.


Our personal data policy will be updated every time it is necessary in order to be always in accordance with the regulations applicable to the protection of your data (at least every three (3) years).
