5.2 Legal basis for processing your personal data. Welow bases the processing of your personal data on a number of legal bases. These are described in this section and more detailed under section 11.
● Performance of Contract. We treat your personal information in order to fulfill the purchase agreement with you as a customer and/or member or to provide any other services we agree to provide to you. Based on this legal basis, we treat information such as your purchases and your interaction with our customer service.
● Legitimate Interest. Part of the processing of personal data we carry out is based on our legitimate interest when we conduct and manage our business. This applies, for example, to the personal data we process to send you personal offers and to make a limited segmentation of customers. For example, this includes the processing and analysing of your purchase history, your buying behavior and your behavior on gant.co.uk in order to gain more knowledge about you as a customer and our customers in general as well as to improve our offers.
● Law Compliance. In some cases, Welow may have a legal obligation to process your personal data to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
● Consent. Generally, Welow does not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data, other than in relation to marketing purposes such as direct marketing and newsletters.
Please note: You are never required to share your personal data with us, however, if you do not submit your personal data to us, we will not be able to fulfill our agreement or fulfill our commitments in relation to you.
6. Who can access your personal data?
Your personal data is for some purposes shared with parties who process personal data on our behalf, so-called processors.
We also transfer your personal data to joint or independent controllers:
● Collaborating partners. To handle payments made by customers, we use suppliers to ensure secure payment solutions;
7. Transfer of personal data to third countries
We always strive to process your data within the EU / EEA.
● We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
● Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
● Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.
8. For how long is your personal data retained?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as you have consented to it or when is necessary to us to provide you with our services or fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, reporting or regulatory requirements. For instance, by law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including contact, identity, financial and transaction data) typically for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your personal data.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
For further information, see section 14.
9. Data Security
Please be aware that communications over the Internet, such as e-mails are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may route through several countries before being delivered. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal data that is beyond our control.
We have appropriate security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control (having regard to the type and amount of that data) from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification, unlawful destruction or accidental loss. We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach, and will notify you and any regulator of a breach when legally required to do so.
