We also anonymize and aggregate personal information (so that it does not identify you) and use it for purposes including research, data analysis, improving our website, IT systems, and developing new products and services. We also share this information with third parties.
No part of your personal data will ever be sold to anybody – including your name, address, email address or credit card information. We share your data with the following categories of companies as they allow us to better provide our services to you, as set out in this statement:
We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymized information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.
If you have agreed to it, we’ll send you marketing messages by email, text, to let you know about what we have to offer and to help you see and find our products.How to stop marketing messages from aquaphor.com
Once you do this, we will update your profile to ensure that you don’t receive further marketing messages. Note, that updating your preferences in all our systems may take a few days, so you might get messages from us while we process your request.
Stopping marketing messages will not stop service communications (such as order updates or product service notifications).
We engage in online advertising, also to let you know what we have to offer and to help you see and find our products.
Like many companies, we target Aquaphor banners and ads to you when you are on other websites and apps. We do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and ad exchanges, and we use a range of advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some websites and social networks, such as Facebook’s Custom Audience service.
The banners and ads you see will be based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of Aquaphor (for example, your Aquaphor browsing history, and the content you read on Aquaphor) or on Aquaphor banners or ads you have previously clicked on.
We have several business sites in countries outside Europe, that perform functions including R&D, procurement, production, quality assurance, marketing, sales, order fulfillment, and customer support. Not all of them relate with you directly, however, some may use the data we hold about you to perform our contract with you.
In particular, the USA is not a country in respect of which there is a European Commission decision of adequacy, and we protect your privacy and your rights through the use of the European Commission’s standard data protection clauses. More information about these is available here http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/en/TXT/?uri=CELEX:32010D0087
We’ll hold on to your information for as long as is needed to be able to provide the services to you, including customer support-related procedures, reporting, and trend analysis.
If reasonably necessary or required to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions, we may also keep hold of some of your information longer.
You have a lot of rights relating to your personal information:
We may change this page from time to time, to reflect how we are processing your data.
If we make significant changes, we will make that clear on the Aquaphor website or other Aquaphor services, or by some other means of contact such as email, so that you are able to review the changes before you continue to use Aquaphor.
We always want to hear from our customers (especially if you feel we could do better).
