COLLECTING & USING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
FULFILMENT OF YOUR ORDER
To handle your order, we need some important information from you. When you order from us, you provide us with your name, address, email, phone number, payment details and, of course, which products you’ve ordered.
When you complete an order, your payment is handled by our payment solutions partners and your order is sent to our warehouse partner. When your order is packed and ready to ship, we share your name, address, email and phone number with our carrier partners to fulfil your delivery.
Our warehouse partner, payment solutions partners, and carrier partners are committed to keeping your data safe.
If you contact our customer service, we will register the personal data that you provide to us. Our customer service has access to all information about your order, so we can help you in the best possible way, whether you have questions about the status of your order, or if you need to return an item. Our customer service is also able to see any previous correspondence with you as this allows us to provide you with better service.
