PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION CHARTER

In order to respect the privacy of Users, Decoration Brands undertakes to process their personal data in the strictest confidence and in full compliance with the newly applicable European and French regulations.

This Protection Charter is intended to inform Users, in a transparent manner, of the methods used by Decoration Brands to collect personal data, the use of the data thus collected, the security procedures implemented and the rights that Users can exercise.

By using the Website, the User acknowledges that he or she has read this Charter and accepts its terms.

The Charter applies for all pages that are hosted and data that is recorded exclusively by Decoration Brands. It does not apply for pages that are hosted by third parties, the contents of which Decoration Brands cannot be held liable as their privacy policies may differ.

 

1. IDENTIFICATION OF THE CONTROLLER

As the data controller, Decoration Brands assumes the related liability for the collection and management of the personal data of its users in accordance with the provisions of EU Regulation 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 on personal data protection.

 

2. THE DIFFERENT CATEGORIES OF COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

The obligatory nature of the data requires the User to accept the collection of his or her data in order to enable Decoration Brands to provide its services. The User is informed of the obligatory nature of such collecting in the data collection forms on the Website.

The collection of personal data may be optional. In such situation, the User’s consent is therefore required. In the absence of consent, Decoration Brands cannot use the User’s data other than to perform its services as described below.

Decoration Brands may also, in compliance with the law, have a legitimate interest in collecting data. In such situation, consent is not obligatory.

 

3. THE PURPOSES OF THE COLLECTION

The collection of the personal data of the User is obligatory in order to formalise his or her sales contract. Thus, the User cannot object to the collection of his or her personal data that is necessary to ensure the management of:

  • his or her customer account;

  • quotes, shopping cart and orders;

  • payments;

  • deliveries;

  • customer relations by telephone, chat, email;

  • after-sales service, returns and refunds;

  • the prevention of fraud during the payment of the order and unpaid items.

Collection is optional for all marketing and advertising operations implemented by Decoration Brands, in particular, newsletters, targeted promotional or sales offers by email, telephone, on social networks or other media, for offers from its commercial partners.

Except in the event of the User’s specific refusal to be the subject of prospecting messages, Decoration Brands has a legitimate interest in collecting data without any consent for the following purposes:

  • If the user has already made a purchase involving Decoration Brands, it is entitled to send him or her information or advertising messages for similar products;

  • For recordings of exchanges between the customer service and the user by telephone or chat for the purpose of improving the service and as proof in the event of litigation;

  • For user satisfaction management (product reviews);

  • To carry out statistical, analysis and segmentation operations with the aim of improving an understanding of users;

  • To analyse, adapt and improve the contents of the Website;

  • To allow the User to receive messages;

  • To facilitate the provision and use of the Website;

  • To respond to requests for information;

The User always has the possibility of unsubscribing or objecting by following the procedure indicated for such purpose in Article IX below.

 

4.THE VARIOUS CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED

Whether obligatory or optional, Decoration Brands may collect the following data from the User:

  • communications (by email or otherwise);

The collecting is carried out through active intervention by the User when he or she makes a purchase, manages his or her order, orders a delivery, registers for the newsletter, registers his or her guarantee, calls the after-sales service and thus sends his or her identification data.

Other data may be collected automatically through the servers consulted and the cookies placed on the website.
