SECTION 3 – HOW AND WHEN DO WE SHARE PERSONAL DATA WITH THIRD PARTIES?

 

Some products and/or services that we provide require the involvement of third parties. We do not sell, rent, distribute or otherwise make personal data commercially available to any third party, except that we may share information with our service providers and other third parties for the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement:

a) Data sharing with service providers

We may share your personal with our third party whom we engage to provide various services. 

  • We use the services of Salesforce Commerce Cloud to host our store. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your personal data is stored through Salesforce Commerce Cloud’s data storage, databases and the general Salesforce Commerce Cloud application. They store your personal data on a secure server behind a firewall.

 

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Salesforce Commerce Cloud stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted. 

 

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

  • We use the services of the Streetify application to verify the delivery address you provide to us and to improve the delivery of our products. To do this, we provide Streetify with the first and last name you enter in the online store, as well as your email address and delivery address. Streetify checks your delivery address using its own database, automatically corrects or suggests corrections if necessary, and sends you an email if your delivery address could not be verified to avoid delivery to an incorrect address.  

 

  • We also use the services of Klaviyo. Klaviyo is a multifunctional e-mail platform that is used for communication around orders and for sending newsletters. 

 

  • We use the services of order, packing and shipping companies, couriers, and transport companies for the deliveries of our products, such as Janssen, XB Fulfillment, Crane Logistic, Shipstation and Desktop Shipper.

 

  • We use the services of Payment Service Providers, such as Adyen, PayPal, First Data, Braintree, Wells Fargo, HSBC, ApplePay, AmazonPay.

SECTION 5 – LOCATION OF PERSONAL DATA

 

As mentioned above, your personal data are stored on Salesforce's servers. As part of its service, Salesforce may transfer your personal data to other regions, including to Canada and the United States. In order to ensure that your personal data is protected when transferred out of the EEA, Salesforce relies on the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, as well as inter-company agreements between its various affiliates that may process your personal data on behalf of Salesforce. Salesforce is responsible for all onward transfers of personal information to third parties. Please read Salesforce Privacy Policy for more information: https://www.salesforce.com/company/privacy/

Your personal data can also be processed by other service providers listed above at Section 3 that may not be located in the EEA. Please note that to make sure your personal data are stored securely and protected, we concluded with each of these service providers an agreement compliant with article 28 of the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 216/679) and incorporating EU-Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses. 

 

SECTION 6 – RETENTION PERIOD

 

We will keep your personal data for as long as we need it to provide you with your requested service(s) or to meet our commercial or legal obligations.

To determine the retention period of your personal data, we consider several criteria to make sure that we do not keep your personal data for long than is necessary or appropriate. These criteria include:

  • The purpose for which we hold your personal data;
  • Our legal and regulatory obligations in relation to that personal data, for example any financial reporting obligations;
  • Any specific requests from you in relation to the deletion of your personal data; and
  • Our legitimate business interests in relation to managing our own rights, for example the defence of any claims.

When we no longer need to retain your personal data, it will be deleted or be anonymised so that you can no longer be identified from it.

 

SECTION 7 - SECURITY

 

To protect your personal data, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. 

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

 

SECTION 8 - CHILDREN

 

We do not knowingly solicit or collect personal data from children below the age of 15. If we discover that we have unintentionally collected personal data from a child below 15, we will remove that child’s personal data from our records promptly.

 

SECTION 9 - CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT

 

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this Privacy Statement, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it. 

 

SECTION 10 – YOUR RIGHTS

 

The following section explains your rights that you may exercise. The various rights are not absolute and each is subject to certain exceptions or qualifications in accordance with applicable data protection legislation. 

  • • The right of access – you have the right to obtain from us confirmation as to whether or not your personal data is being processed by us, and about certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Statement) about how it is used. You also have the right to access your personal data, by requesting a copy of the personal data concerning you. This is so you are aware and can check that we are using your information in accordance with data protection law. We can refuse to provide information where to do so may reveal personal data about another person or would otherwise negatively impact another person's rights. 

 

  • • The right to rectification – you can ask us to take measures to correct your personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete (e.g., if we have the wrong name or address for you). 

 

  • • The right to erasure – this right enables you to request the deletion or removal of your personal data where, for example, there is no compelling reason for us to keep using it or its use is unlawful. 

 

  • • The right to restrict processing – you have the right to ‘block’ or suppress the further use of your personal data when we are assessing a request for rectification or as an alternative to erasure. When processing is restricted, we can still store your personal data, but may not use it further. 

 

  • • The right to data portability – you have the right to obtain and reuse certain personal data for your own purposes across different organisations (being separate data controllers). This only applies to your personal data that you have provided to us that we are processing with your consent and for the purposes of contract fulfilment, which is being processed by automated means. In such a case we will provide you with a copy of your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or (where technically feasible) we may transmit your data directly to a separate data controller. 

 

  • • The right to object – you have the right to object to certain types of processing, on grounds relating to your particular situation. We will be allowed to continue to process the personal data if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or we need this for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. If you object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes. 

 

  • • The right to provide us with directives regarding the use of your personal data after your death – if you are a resident of France, you have the right to provide us with instructions on the management (e.g., retention, erasure and disclosure) of your personal data after your death. You can change or revoke your instructions at any time.
