TRANSPARENCY

What Information Do We Collect?

When you interact with our website, apps and other channels, we may collect information about you from three main sources:

- you may give us some of this information directly;

- we may collect information automatically from your interaction with our website, apps and other channels;

- we may also obtain information from third parties.

Depending on how you interact with our Web, i.e., depending on the services, products or functionalities that you wish to enjoy, we will process your personal data for the following purposes:

PURPOSE

1. To manage your registration as user of the Web

If you decide to become a registered user of our Web, we need to process your data to identify you as a user of the Web and grant you access to its various functionalities, products and services available to you as a registered user. You may cancel your registered user account by contacting us through Customer Support.

2. For the development, performance and execution of the purchase or services contract

This purpose includes processing your data, mainly:

- To contact you for updates or informative notices related to the contracted functionalities, products or services, including quality surveys and to be able to establish the degree of customer satisfaction with the provided service;

To manage payment of the products that you purchase, regardless of the payment procedure used.

For example:

If on purchasing any of our products through the Website or the App, you opt to activate the functionality of save your card data for future purchases, we need to process the indicated data for activation and development of that functionality. Consent to the activation of this functionality enables your autocompleted payment data to appear in subsequent purchases so that you do not need to introduce them in each new process, and these data will be deemed valid and effective for subsequent purchases. You may change or cancel your cards at any time through the section on payment information, either of your Website registered user account.

Activate the necessary arrangements in order to control and prevent potential fraud against you and against us during the purchase process. If we consider that the transaction can be fraudulent, this processing may cause the blocking of the transaction.

To manage potential returns after you have purchased and manage requests of availability information for articles, reservations of products through the Web, depending on the availability of such options from time to time.

For invoicing purposes and to make available to you the tickets and invoices of the purchases you have made through the Web.

If you access our Web, we inform you that we will treat your browsing data for analytic and statistic purposes, i.e., to understand the manner in which users interact with our Web and thus be capable of introducing improvements in the Web.

In addition, we occasionally perform quality surveys and actions to know the degree of satisfaction of our customers and users and detect those areas in which we may improve.

SAFEGUARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We maintain appropriate, administrative, technical, organisational and physical safeguards to protect the personal data you provide to us against accidental, unlawful or unauthorised destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use, and other unlawful forms of processing.

We use industry recognised security technology for establishing an encrypted channel to pass information between two systems. This link ensures that all data (payment information, personal information) passing between your computer and our websites remain private and secure.

However, when you communicate with customer service via email, the level of protection for such communication channels is not guaranteed (e.g. there is no encryption), and therefore, be aware that information provided (such as email address, payment information, etc.) may be accessible to others. For that reason, we ask that you protect yourself and not share sensitive information via these communication channels.

Interacting with social media on our website or apps

We may receive information from third parties through the social links presented on our website or apps in the form of social buttons like Tweet, Like or Pin it. By clicking on one of these buttons, you will be prompted to log in to the corresponding social media website; you will essentially be browsing both our website/app and the social platform at the same time, but your experience with the social components will be governed by the privacy and other policies of the social platform. The privacy settings you have chosen on that social media platform will determine the degree to which your information is made public. We encourage you to choose your privacy settings accordingly.

SECURE SHOPPING

We take security very seriously, so your personal information will be protected. We use the industry standard encryption protocol known as Secure Socket layer (SSL) and other reasonable measures to protect your information from unauthorised use or disclosure. All the confidential data like payment information is encrypted and transmitted through a secure channel using SSL encryption.

If any unauthorised charges appear on your credit card as a result of shopping with www.couscousgriptape.com, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.

Please note that we never ask a customer to confirm any account or credit card details via email. If you receive an email claiming to be from COUSCOUS SKATE CO asking you to do so, do not respond and let us know by email at couscousgriptape@gmail.com.
