DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION AND USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS (WITH ANONYMIZATION FUNCTION)
On this Platform, the Controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the Anonymization function). "Google Analytics" is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics, the Controller uses the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". By means of this application the IP address of the internet connection of the Data Subject is abridged by Google and Anonymized when accessing our Platform from the state of Philippines.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyses the traffic on our Platform.

PAYMENT METHOD: DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE USE OF MOLLIE AND PAYPAL AS A PAYMENT PROCESSORS
On this Platform, the Controller has integrated components of Mollie and Paypal. Mollie and PayPal are online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called Mollie and PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. Mollie and PayPal are also able to process virtual payments through credit cards when a user does not have a Mollie or PayPal account. Mollie and PayPal account are managed via an email address, which is why there are no classic account numbers. Mollie and PayPal make it possible to trigger online payments to Third-parties or to receive payments. Mollie and PayPal also accept trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.
Mollie has appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO). Among other things, the DPO is responsible for supervising the Processing of Personal Data by Mollie, taking stock of data Processing and advising on technology and security. The DPO is registered at the Dutch Data Protection Authority under registration number FG000763.
The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.
If the Data Subject chooses "Mollie" or "PayPal" as the payment option in the online shop during the ordering process, we automatically transmit the data of the Data Subject to Mollie and PayPal accordingly. By selecting these payment option, the Data Subject agrees to the transfer of Personal Data required for payment processing.
The Personal Data transmitted to Mollie and PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other data necessary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such Personal Data, which are in connection with the respective order.
The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The Controller will transfer Personal Data to Mollie or PayPal, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The Personal Data exchanged between Mollie or PayPal, and the Controller for the Processing of the data will be transmitted by Mollie to economic credit agencies. This transmission is intended for identity and creditworthiness checks.
Mollie or PayPal will, if necessary, pass on Personal Data to affiliates and service providers or subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary to fulfil contractual obligations or for data to be processed in the order.
The Data Subject has the possibility to revoke Consent for the handling of Personal Data at any time from Mollie and PayPal. A revocation shall not have any effect on Personal Data which must be processed, used, or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.
The applicable data protection provisions of Mollie and PayPal may be retrieved under https://www.mollie.com/en/privacy and, https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.
LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING
Section 21(a) Implementing Rules and Regulations of the DPA serves as the legal basis for Processing operations for which we obtain Consent for a specific Processing purpose. If the Processing of Personal Data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the Data Subject is party, as is the case, for example, when Processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the Processing is based on Section 21(b) Implementing Rules and Regulations of the DPA. The same applies to such Processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example, in the case of inquiries concerning our services. If we are subject to a legal obligation by which Processing of Personal Data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the Processing is based on Section 21(c) Implementing Rules and Regulations of the DPA. In rare cases, the Processing of Personal Data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the Data Subject or another natural person. Then the Processing would be based on Section 21(d) Implementing Rules and Regulations of the DPA. Finally, Processing operations could be based on Section 21(g) of Implementing Rules and Regulations of the DPA. This legal basis is used for Processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if the Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a Third-party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the Data Subject which require protection of Personal Data. Such Processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the Filipino legislators. They considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the Data Subject is a client of the Controller (Section 34(b)(2) of Implementing Rules and Regulations of the DPA).
THE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS PURSUED BY THE CONTROLLER OR BY A THIRD-PARTY
Where the Processing of Personal Data is based on Section 21(g) of Implementing Rules and Regulations of the DPA our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
PERIOD FOR WHICH THE PERSONAL DATA WILL BE STORED
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of Personal Data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract. If the Data Subject requests for termination or terminates his Account, the Personal Data shall be retained only for as long as necessary based on Section 19(d) of Implementing Rules and Regulations of the DPA.
PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA AS STATUTORY OR CONTRACTUAL REQUIREMENT; REQUIREMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT; OBLIGATION OF THE DATA SUBJECT TO PROVIDE THE PERSONAL DATA; POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUCH DATA
We clarify that the provision of Personal Data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the Data Subject provides us with Personal Data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The Data Subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with Personal Data when we sign a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the Personal Data would have the consequence that the contract with the Data Subject could not be concluded. Before Personal Data is provided by the Data Subject, the Data Subject must contact us. We will clarify to the Data Subject whether the provision of the Personal Data is required by law, contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the Personal Data and the consequences of non-provision of the Personal Data.
