WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Ritology collects and uses your personal data for the purposes set out below. Please be informed that insofar Ritology already holds information about you, Ritology may use that information for the same purposes.
For the performance of our agreement with you:
In order to manage and handle your purchases and to provide you with the Services you requested from us, we use this information you give us to perform the services for which you have signed up.
To comply with a legal obligation to which Ritology is subject to.

For our legitimate commercial interests:
We will use your contact details to send you newsletters or general marketing materials as well as surveys about products and Services you have purchased. At any time, you may opt out of receiving such marketing materials by following the instructions in any communication you receive from us.
We will use the personal data referred to above to improve our products and services as well as to understand our customers.

This also means that we analyse your use of our products and Services and we use this information to improve our products and Services and to give you a better user experience (e.g., we analyse what web pages you visit, which Products and Services you use and like, how you use these Products and Services, which enables us to create personal profiles and to assess what may be interesting to you, which recommendations we can give you when you purchase our Products or use our Services). Creating personal profiles of our customers enables us to send you marketing materials that directly relates to your use of our Products and Services.
The personal data may also be used by us:

HOW WE SHARE YOUR DATA
We may share your personal data with the following parties:
b) Service Providers and Processor. We engage third party companies, contractors, vendors, agents, service providers, and affiliated entities to provide services to us on our behalf, such as support for the internal operations of our websites, online stores (including payment processors and third parties we use to send your orders to your home address), Services (such as technical support processing), as well as related offline product support services, data storage and other services.
In providing their services, they can access, receive, maintain or otherwise process personal data on our behalf. Our contracts with these service providers do not permit the use of your information for their own (marketing) purposes. Consistent with applicable legal requirements, we take commercially reasonable steps to require third parties to adequately safeguard your personal data and only process it in accordance with our instructions.

COOKIES, ANALYTICS AND PERSONALISATION
We may collect data from other sources which may not always be obvious, such as through the use of “cookies”. We may also gather information from both online and offline data providers. This information could include internet browsing behaviour, demographic data or interest-based data.
A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer that contains information that helps the website to identify and track the visitor. Cookies do no harm to your computer, consist only of text, cannot contain viruses, and occupies virtually no space on your hard drive.
Two types of cookies are used:
a) "Session Cookies"
b) Permanent cookies.
Session Cookies: A "Session Cookie" is never stored permanently on your computer and disappears when you close your browser. Some parts of our websites will require you to have cookies enabled.
Permanent Cookie: The second type saves a file permanently to your computer. This type of cookie is used to track how visitors move around on the website. This is only used to offer visitors better services and support and can be deleted. On this website, we use this type of cookies to keep track of your shopping cart and to keep statistics of our visitors. The information stored on your computer is only a unique number, without any connection to personal information.
To opt out of cookies, you can alter the settings on your internet browser to accept or reject a website from using cookies. Please be aware that this may affect the functionality of the website.
When you browse our website, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
We may also collect data: regarding device IDs or identifiers, connection information, device software, statistics of page views, ad data, referral URLs and IP data; to determine your general geographic location, so that we can provide location-specific content to you; to assist in responding to complaints and queries; to investigate any possible breach of our terms or conditions including fraud or illegal activities with the use of your personal data; and with your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products, and other updates.
If we do ask for your personal information for a secondary purpose such as marketing and you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we will either ask you directly for your express consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no. If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent at any time, by contacting us or by using the unsubscribe link within any of our emails. Same goes for anyone outside of the EEA.
We use tracking software to monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of websites. This software does not enable us to capture any of your data.

Our Services are not designed for children and do not knowingly collect personal data from children. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal data to us, please email us at the Contact Email described at the bottom of this policy, and we will endeavour to delete that information from our databases.
INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Please be informed that we transfer and process any personal data you provide to us to countries other than your country of residence. The laws of these countries may not afford the same level of protection to your personal data. We will therefore seek to ensure that all adequate safeguards are in place and that all applicable laws and regulations are complied with in connection with such transfer.
Ritology will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal data is properly secured using appropriate technical, physical, and organisational measures, so that they are protected against unauthorised or unlawful use, alteration, unauthorised access or disclosure, accidental or wrongful destruction, and loss. Your personal data will be retained for as long as required for the above purposes or in so far as such is necessary for compliance with statutory obligations and for solving any disputes.
We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal data, and to protect it against accidental loss, destruction or damage. The data you provide to us is protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. SSL is the industry standard method of encrypting personal information and credit card details so that they can be securely transferred over the Internet.
Ritology retains your personal data for as long as required to satisfy the purpose for which they were collected and used (for example, for the time necessary for us to send you the newsletters you subscribed to, to provide you with customer service, answer queries or resolve technical problems, etc.), unless a longer period is necessary for our legal obligations or to defend a legal claim.
We can delete any personal data and account upon your request or 30 days after it has become inactive. We will consider your account ‘inactive’ when you haven’t used your account for a period of 2 years. If we need to store certain types of your personal data for a longer period due to legal requirements, we will store such data in accordance with the mandatory periods.
If you would like to contact us regarding any of these rights please email us at the Contact Details described below.
To the extent that we are relying on our legitimate interests to use your personal data, you also have the right to object to such use (unless we have legitimate grounds for the use that override your interests, rights and freedoms or where we need to process that data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims).
We will respond to your request within at least one month, to invoke your rights consistent with applicable law.
You may revoke your consent for receiving marketing communications at any time, free of charge by following the instructions in any marketing communication or by simply contacting us.
In case you may have a question or complaint about how we process your personal data, please email at the Contact Details described below.
