Your Data may also be transferred to third parties, (1) subject to your prior consent, for processing in accordance with the purpose(s) for which your Data has been collected or (2) in the event that we are obliged to do so by the law, as part of legal proceedings, or if an imperative request has been made by a public body or (3) if we are involved in a merger or acquisition operation, or asset sale.

6. Transfer of your Personal Data outside the European Union

In the event that the Personal Data is transferred to a country located outside the European Union, we commit ourselves to taking the technical and organisational measures required in order to guarantee an adequate level of security for your Data as if it had remained within the European Union.

Indeed, we demand to these Data recipients that they implement the measures required in order to ensure the same level of protection as demanded by the European regulations relating to personal data; for example, by using the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission or the Binding Corporate Rules (BCR).

8. For how long do we store your Personal Data?

We store your Personal Data only for the period that is strictly required for achieving the purposes for which they were collected. Hence, we store:

  • your Personal Data, with the exception of your bank details, which are collected and processed by the intermediary among our service providers responsible for processing payments, for 3 years from the date of the last interaction between us (i.e. from your last purchase, from the last contact (call, email, chat or social network interaction) with our Customer Services, from the opening of our newsletter, or otherwise from the date on which the customer’s profile was created);

  • the connection logs that are collected, provided that you consent to this, with the help of cookies and other trackers used within the context of the service, for a period no longer than thirteen (13) months. For more details, please see the "Cookies Policy"

Your bank details are stored by our payment partners, Hipay and Adyen. When you make purchases on-line, you are required to enter your bank details into the fields provided for that purpose. If you provide your consent, and in order to facilitate your payments, you may choose for our payment service provider to store your bank details in a secure manner so that they can be used for your next purchases. If this is the case, you can tick the "Save your payment details" option when you pay for your order. You may, at any moment, ask us to delete the registered bank card by consulting your account, under the heading "My payment options", or by writing to us via our contact form.

Once your Data has been deleted from our database, some of your Data may be stored in an archived form with limited access, strictly limited to the objectives of satisfying our legal, accounting and fiscal obligations, but also for the purposes of managing any complaints or guarantee claims you might have within the applicable limits of any limitation periods.

Once your Personal Data is no longer required for these purposes or for archiving purposes in order to comply with our legal obligations or for the purposes of the applicable limitation, your data will be irreversibly anonymised.

You may, at any time, request that we erase all or part of your Data, object to its processing or request that it is restricted, in compliance with Article 4 above. In the event that you request for your Data to be erased, it will be erased from our database and stored in an archived form as described above.
