On 25 May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union has come into effect. The GDPR specifies how companies must protect their customers' data.
One of the main objectives of the new regulation is to harmonize the legal situation across member states to ensure that consumers throughout Europe can rely on uniform regulations. The GDPR is particularly relevant for online merchants because in distance selling, customer data is inevitably processed and stored. To what extent such customer data may be collected in the future, how the data should be protected and, if necessary, deleted at the request of the customer, is regulated in the ordinance.
Outdoorbrands is compliant with GDPR and our service doesn’t require your explicit approval for processing personal data. Significantly, we only process and use your personal data within the limits of contract fulfilment pursuant to Art. 6 GDPR. This includes, for example, passing on your address to logistic providers. In addition, we ensure that we only request the minimum personal data required for the business transaction.
