Changes to our policy
Online Policy Only
In short, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a law which ensures you that companies such as us will treat your personal data (such as home address, email address, phone number etc.) in a safe and secure manner. You will be able to request records of what information of yours we keep as well as un-register and get your data deleted from our system*. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will answer all questions and requests.
We of course hope that you will continue to let us keep in touch with you so that you can take part in future offers and news relevant for you and your club.
* This applies to those of you have bought your mouth guard more than 18 months ago. Due to our obligations concerning the guarantee of our products, we will need to keep your details during this period. Once the 18 months after your purchase expires, you are free to choose if you want to be kept in our registry or not.
We will store your data in 18 months in order to fulfill the dental warranty, which is valid for 12 months after your purchase of a SISU Mouthguard. The personal data we store will never be about sensitive matters other than contact details so that we can keep in touch. Our checkout process asks customers about what sport they play in order to better serve them in the sports that they play.
When it comes to matters extending beyond our dental warranty offer, we will only use your data in order to provide you with customer support, confirm orders, remind you about guarantee conditions, analyse your experience of the contact between us – this, only so that we can improve where needed – but also for our own statistics. Last but not least, we also use it to present you with relevant offers and news.
We do not share any personal data to third parties unless legally obligated.
We do not share your personal data outside the EU.
If you want to know more about what this means for you, please contact us at email@example.com. This is also where you should reach out if you wish to change any of the information we have on you.
GDPR does not allow data storing without permission for longer than 12 months after which they should go into a removal process. We are keeping the records for an additional 6 months, due to balance of interests grounded in guarantee obligations. Once this time has run its course, your data will automatically be deleted from our systems, unless you have given us the permission to keep your contact details on record – which we of course hope that you will.
We have established a policy for personal data handling as well as a course of action in case of data breaches.
When creating an account on our website you accept our data storing approach and terms and conditions. The latter can be subject to change in the future, but if so we will be sure to let you know so that you can take actions accordingly if you deem it necessary.
