1. Personal Data
Every Internet user can access our Website without having his personal data processed.
In order to receive personalized services, at several locations of our website you will however be asked to provide personal data (e.g. your E-mail address). This is done via electronic forms that you need to fill in when e.g. requesting information about a product or service or when subscribing to a newsletter. Your personal data will thus be processed merely on your own request.
The processing of your data is performed for the following purposes: first of all the processing of your requests for information on our products and services. Furthermore we may use your personal information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, together with non-personal data to monitor customer patterns so we can consistently improve our site design to better meet our visitor’s needs. We may use your personal information to send you marketing updates. We do not sell your details to third party marketing companies. Your personal information will only be shared with the shipping companies to the extent necessary to deliver the goods. We collate information about site traffic, sales and other commercial information which we may pass on to third parties.
When there is a legal obligation to do so, we may disclose your information to any relevant regulatory body.
GC EUROPE will use personal data only for the purposes indicated above.
When you submit a question or request to GC EUROPE via the ‘Contact’ section, GC EUROPE will forward this question or request and the personal information provided by that Internet user to GC EUROPE’s subsidiary or branch located in the Internet user’s country of residence. In these circumstances, personal data are thus not only processed by GC EUROPE, or under the sole control of GC EUROPE, but also by its subsidiaries and branches.
Subject to the above and except to the extent that communication of personal data to companies whose intervention as data processors, acting on behalf and under the control of GC EUROPE, is required to accomplish the purposes indicated above, GC EUROPE will not disclose, sell, rent or exchange such personal data to any other organization or entity unless you are first notified and expressly agreed with it, or as otherwise required by law (for example in the framework of a judicial procedure).
We draw your attention to the fact that you have the right to access and restrict the data pertaining to you and processed by GC EUROPE, and, where appropriate, request rectification of any erroneous data relating to you personally.
You may furthermore, at any moment, object, by means of a simple request and free of charge, to the future processing of personal data relating to you for the purpose of direct marketing.
You may exercise this right to access, rectify or object by contacting us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post at the aforementioned address. If you would have any further questions or complaints, you can use the same addresses to contact us.
