1.2 WHY DO WE SAVE YOUR DATA?
We will use the information you provide us to process your order(s) and to provide you with information regarding your order, and to operate and manage our online store. To improve the user experience of the online store, we collect data regarding your surfing behavior on the store and your purchase information. We will only approach you with information if you given permission to be contacted for these purposes. If you prefer not to receive our marketing communications (newsletters), you can choose to unsubscribe. This is possible in every newsletter that you receive.
We will use the data of individuals acting in their professional capacity as representatives of a vendor or other third party company, and visitors to Steve Madden Europe’s premises to investigate the possibilities for cooperation, doing business or the safety of our staff and customers.
We may also use your information to detect, investigate and prevent breaches of policy, and criminal offences (in accordance with applicable law), establish, exercise and defend legal rights or to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations under applicable law.
1.3 LEGAL GROUNDS
By making a purchase through our online store you enter into a purchase agreement with Steve Madden Europe. The processing of personal data is necessary in connection with any contract that you have entered into with us, or to take steps prior to entering into a contract with us. This is why the actual details of the order are stored in our database. As indicated elsewhere (paragraph 1.2) in this document, we also use your permission as grounds for newsletters and cookies. In addition, we also store personal information if necessary based on legal obligations.
Processing the data of individuals acting in their professional capacity as representatives of a vendor or other third party company is necessary for the performance of a contract, a legal obligation or the purposes of the legitimate interests by Steve Madden Europe.
Steve Madden Europe will not share your personal information with third parties that are located outside the European Economic Area. You have access to your personal information yourself by logging in via your account or by requesting this information via email@example.com. In your account you can view all the details of your orders and personal information. We are committed to keeping your personal access data confidential and will never disclose it to unauthorized persons. Unfortunately we cannot be held responsible for abuse of passwords. We therefore advise you not to share your personal information and passwords with others. You are responsible for securing your account and your computer against unauthorized access.
In addition, you always have the right to request on legitimate grounds, deletion of your data or restriction of the processing of your data, view the data that we have saved together with information regarding the nature, processing and disclosure of the data and request to transfer your data to another controller.
If you are concerned about your privacy, you have the right to view your personal information and to correct any inaccuracies free of charge. You also have the right to ask us to stop using your personal information for marketing purposes and all the rights that are said before.
We do not store your personal information longer than strictly necessary for the completion of the reasons for which your personal information is collected.
For example, we use a storage period of 7 years if you place an order as a 'guest'. After 7 years we evaluate if you are still a customer. If not, we delete your data.
When you create an account, we store your data as long as you are active as a customer. You are considered an active customer if you have placed at least 1 order in the past 7 years. The reason for this retention period, on the one hand, is based on our legal obligation toward Tax Authorities to store financial data for 7 years. On the other hand, we maintain such a retention period for proper handling of any complaints.
The personal information of individuals acting in their professional capacity as representatives of a vendor or other third party company will no longer be stored than strictly necessary for the completion of the reasons for which the personal information is collected.
The law dictates appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your data. We ensure that we comply with these measures and take care that the security technology used is up-to-date and that our partners are aware thereof. In addition, Steve Madden Europe administers an internal privacy and security policy which ensures that staff handles data confidentially if they are involved.
When you create an account or create an order, we store your data on a Secure Server. Your information will always be protected and treated confidentially.
We use a secure (SSL) connection for sending and receiving critical information, such as financial information. We have implemented the necessary security measures to prevent loss, unlawful use or unjustified changes to information on our website as effectively as possible. Steven Madden Europe is committed to keeping security technology updated.
We cannot guarantee 100% security, but this makes it difficult for a hacker to decrypt your data. We therefore recommend that you do not send us your full credit or debit card details using an unencrypted electronic communication method.
It is possible that we pass on your personal information to one of our European affiliates. These companies are (sub)processors of our personal information. The (sub)processors of Steve Madden Europe are web builders, logistics companies, payment services and marketing services. Data processor agreements have been concluded with these (sub)processors in order to comply with the guidelines set out in AVG legislation.
Transferral of information to a country outside of the European Economic Area will only take place if, accordingly, the necessary and appropriate legal guarantees have been obtained.
For any competitions we use personal information to inform the winners and to advertise our offers. More details, if applicable, can be found in the terms and conditions of the relevant competition.
