This Privacy Policy sets out the privacy policy with respect to our collection, processing, storage, disclosure and recording (using so-called “cookies”) of personal information on the Perfetti Van Melle website(s) (“Site”).

1. Protection of Personal Data
The protection of personal data is a matter of great importance to Perfetti Van Melle (“we/us/our”), located in the United Kingdom. It forms part of our basic policies that we handle the personal data you supply to us in accordance with the law and for the purposes of providing the requested services only, as well as for purposes for which you have explicitly consented. Before accessing the Site we would like to inform you of which data we request from you and for which purposes such data is collected and used.

We will keep your personal data strictly confidential. In order to protect the security and confidentiality of your personal data, we will maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures and require the recipients of your personal data to do the same. We will save your personal data only for the time necessary for the above mentioned purposes. After that period of time, your data will be deleted.

The Site will strive to observe the law in all collection, processing and storage of subject data and will meet any subject access request in compliance with the law. The Site will only use data in ways relevant to carrying out its legitimate purposes and functions in a way that is not prejudicial to the interests of individuals. We will take due care in the collection, processing and storage of any sensitive data and will do our utmost to keep all data accurate and secure. By using the Site you consent to such processing and you warrant that all data and material provided, uploaded and/or stored by you is accurate.

2. Collection of Personal Data
Personal data can include all individual information on personal or factual circumstances of any particular or ascertainable natural person. This may also include for example e-mail address, surname, first name, date and place of birth, address and phone number, family status, education, profession, etc. We collect personal data from the visitors of our Site only where this is desired by the person and necessary for the purposes of getting in contact with the relevant user or when this is necessary to participate in certain services. For example, this might be the case for access to marketing and promotional programmes or schemes as well as for certain features offered by us or by third parties, if you decide to participate.

Via links on our Site you may be directed to internet services of third parties, which may themselves collect, process and use personal data. It may be that you will be required to register and reveal some personal data for the purposes of using such third party services. In relation to those services and for the purposes of compliance with the applicable data protection laws, the operators of the external internet sites, who may inform you about their handling of your personal data with their own privacy policy, are solely responsible. We have no possibilities of ensuring that your data is protected by the relevant companies in the same way as your data is protected by us.

3. Processing and use of personal data
We process and use your personal data only to the extent that you have consented and/or this is necessary for the use of our services. In particular, the latter is the case where we use your data after your request for communication purposes, i.e. for you to access certain content or for us to provide you with information on our products. For these purposes, your data is saved on a centralised server situated in the [United Kingdom] that is inaccessible by unauthorized third parties. Provided you have given your prior voluntary consent in possession of the necessary legal information, we may use and transfer individual personal data also for the purposes of market research or the creation of statistics or for advertisement purposes to other companies that are affiliated with us (including outside of Europe). Users will be contacted for advertising purposes only if they have agreed to it. There will be no sale or trading of your personal data with third party companies not affiliated with our company in any way. We will not create any user profile or profile of interests on the basis of your personal data.

4. Use of Personal Data outside the EU
To the extent that we actually collect, process or use your personal data, this shall be done in compliance with the applicable statutory provisions on data protection. These provisions in certain cases may require your consent to the collection, processing or use of personal data. Before you submit personal data to us in the context of the use of the Site, an automatic declaration of consent will appear on the screen of your computer. The declaration of consent may inform you about the use of the personal data and the transfer of personal data from the United Kingdom to our affiliated companies in the European Union and outside the European Union where the level of data protection may be lower, as in the United Kingdom, and of a transfer of personal data to third parties. We would like to kindly ask you to read any declaration of consent appearing on your screen carefully. If you agree to the declaration of your voluntary and explicit consent to the processing of your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy, including the transfer of your personal data to third parties, please tick the applicable boxes to indicate your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time in writing to us at: The Boatyard, 105 Straight Road, Old Windsor, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 2SE. You may declare this revocation at any time. We will then delete your stored personal data without undue delay.

Besides that, you may also request the correction, blocking or deletion of any incorrect data and/or the deletion of your data in this way or contact us if you have any further questions in relation to this declaration of data protection.
