3. What personal data do we process, for what purpose and what is the legal basis for the processing


We collect, store and process personal data only for predefined purposes and only on legal grounds. We process personal data mainly for the following purposes and on the following grounds:



4. Sources of personal data


We receive personal data mainly from the data subject in connection with contacting, registering an account or buying in the online store.


5. With whom we share personal data


As a general rule, only our own staff processes your personal data for the purposes described in this privacy policy. We may share personal data with others, especially in the following situations:


(a)  Our service providers. We may use external service providers, for example, for order processing and deliveries, payment handling and the development and maintenance of our online store. In principle, such service providers may not use your personal data for purposes that would be in conflict with what is presented in this privacy policy. What information our service providers process at any given time is closely related to the task and purpose for which we use the service provider;

(b) Official and other legal reasons. We may also disclose information when required to do so by law, court or competent authority and to respond to or prepare for a legal action;

(c)  Business arrangements. We may also disclose information if we were involved in a business or corporate transaction or other reorganization of our business; and

(d) Consent of the data subject. We may also disclose information if the person has given consent to the disclosure of information.


6. International data transfers


As a rule, personal data is processed only within the EU/EEA area. Personal data can be transferred outside the EU/EEA area mainly in the situation if one of the service providers we use is located outside the EU/EEA area.


If personal data were to be transferred outside the EU/EEA to a country that is not included in the EU Commission's decision on the adequate level of data protection, we will ensure that the processing, transfer and storage of your data takes place on the grounds required by law and with an adequate protection mechanism, such as standard contract clauses confirmed by the EU Commission. The standard contract clauses can be found here (part of the text is in English): The standard contract clauses have different modules for different situations, most likely modules 1 (data controller-data controller) or 2 (data controller-processor) would be applied depending on the situation.


7. Retention periods


We do not store personal data longer than is necessary for the purpose of their use or as required by contract or law. Personal data can also be deleted in a situation where the data subject withdraws consent or requests the deletion of the data (and there is no other legal basis for the processing). Data retention periods can also be affected by legislation (e.g. accounting law, tax laws) and the expiration of deadlines related to presenting legal claims (e.g. statutes of limitations).


The required storage time can vary, but typically it can mean a few years. Customer data is generally stored for the duration of the customer relationship. Accounting documents are typically kept for 6-10 years.


8. Your rights


You have the following rights related to your personal data:
