How we use the information about you
As a data controller, we collect and process information about you so that we can provide you with the products and services you request or that we think you would reasonably expect to receive in light of the products you have bought. This includes:
– meeting our contractual obligations to you;
– providing you with a quotation (RepBox);
– provide you an online statement facility;
– servicing your account (including monthly RepBox orders, account administration, payments and other transactions);
– detecting, investigating and preventing activities which may be illegal or could result in the law being broken; and,
– if you agree, contacting you about other products and services we think may be of interest to you.
Under the provisions of legitimate interest within GDPR, we may email you to remind you of an abandoned checkout. If you have not provided explicit consent to opting into marketing materials from us, we will not use your email for any other marketing emails. If you would prefer not to receive these legitimate interest emails, please email us at email@example.com and we will ensure your email address is not used.
Some of the personal information we ask you to provide may be sensitive information. This includes details about your address and your payment information. We will always ask for your consent before collecting and processing your sensitive information. Please note that we may not be able to sell you any products if you do not agree to us processing relevant sensitive information. When you ask for a RepBox quotation or buy a product, we will send your details to our warehouse and courier to allow processing of your order.
We will also allow other members of Athleat to access your information where they provide a service, administration or management support on our behalf. Some of these companies may be based outside of the European Union where different data privacy laws apply. In these circumstances, we have strict contractual terms in place, to make sure that your information remains safe and secure.
If you provide information about anyone else, you confirm that they (or their legal guardian) have agreed that you may give us their information, including sensitive information, for the reasons described in this document.
We will not share your information with anyone else unless you agree to this, or we are required to do this by our regulators (e.g. the Information Commissioner) or other authorities.
We also use technical information (such as your IP address or a device identifier) to help improve your experience when using our website.
