I. General information and legal bases

The following declaration informs you about what kind of personal data is collected for what purpose on this website by us as the responsible body and to what extent this data is made accessible to third parties.

1.Data security engineer

AOSOM IRELAND LIMITED
Unit 605, Jordanstown Road,Greenogue Business Park, Rathcoole, Dublin,D24 P08H

E-Mail: service@aosom.ie

2. Personal information collected

We collect your personal information in order to provide and continually improve our products and services.

Here are the types of personal information we collect:

Information you give us: we receive and store any information you provide in relation to our services. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our services.

Automatic information: we automatically collect and store certain types of information about your use of our services including your interaction with content and services available through us. Like many websites, we use cookies and other unique identifiers and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser or device accesses our services.

We process personal information for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy observing legal bases set out in relevant laws and regulations.

3. Legal bases of processing

The processing of personal data requires a legal basis, which we would like to present to you below.

In the case of processing of personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also includes processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the execution of our business activities as well as in the analysis, optimization and maintenance of the security of our online offer.

II. Log files, hosting

The server statistics automatically store data that the browser transmits to us as part of our legitimate interest in analysis and for security reasons (so-called "logfiles").

These are the following data in detail:

  • Language and version of the browser software
  • Operating system used and its interface
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page)
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Date and time of the server request
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • amount of data transferred
  • Access status/ HTTP status code.

As a rule, we cannot assign this data to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. The data will also be deleted within 7 days after a statistical evaluation. Data whose further storage is necessary for evidentiary purposes are excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.

We use hosting services. These serve the provision of infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services in order to maintain the operation of this online offer.

In doing so, we or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors of this online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer.

III. Contractual processing

The personal data you provide, such as name, address or e-mail address, will only be used internally to answer your inquiries, process your orders or give you access to certain information.

We may also transfer your personal information to third-party service providers and business partners and your data may therefore also be transmitted to other countries or regions. The jurisdiction in which these global facilities are located may or may not protect personal information to the same standards as in your jurisdiction. There are different risks under different data protection laws. However, this does not change our commitment to comply with this Privacy Policy and to protect your personal information.

IV. Contacting us

When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, your details will be stored by us in order to answer your questions.

A transfer to third parties does not take place in principle, unless applicable data protection regulations justify a transfer or we are legally obliged to do so. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In the event of revocation, your data will be deleted immediately. Your data will otherwise be deleted if we have processed your request or the purpose of storage has ceased to exist. You can inform yourself at any time about the data stored about you.

If you have any concern about privacy at Aosom, please send an email to our Customer Service (Service@aosom.ie) with a thorough description and we will try to resolve the issue for you. Further, the data security engineer can be contacted with the information provided in previous section (E-Mail: Service@aosom.ie ).

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we need a valid e-mail address from you, which allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter.

A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter. If the users have only registered for the newsletter and cancelled this registration, their personal data will be deleted.

We work with a shipping service provider. According to its own information, the shipping service provider can use this data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves or to pass them on to third parties.

Other service providers

In some cases, we use external service providers within the scope of our legitimate interests with regard to the analysis, optimization and economic operation of the online offer. This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user's device and contain, among other things, technical information similar to the log files. Below we list our service providers.

If your data is to be used for other purposes, we will inform you in advance and only use the data if you have expressly given your consent to this in advance.

1. Google

As part of our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer, we use the services of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, ("Google").

a. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics as a web analytics service. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and therefore IP addresses of Google in member states within the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area are shortened before the transfer in order to exclude a direct personal reference. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the provider, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in Google's privacy policy under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and especially for Google Analytics under https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en and under https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

When you click on an ad placed by Google, so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer, are set. The cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. This allows Google and we to recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. The conversion cookies are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers. These customers receive the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. Personal identification is also not possible for these customers. You can object to the use by deactivating the Google tracking cookie in your Internet browser. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

To carry out the analysis of website use, which forms the basis for the creation of interest-based advertisements, Google uses so-called cookies. For this purpose, Google stores a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of visitors to the website. This number is used to record visits to the website as well as anonymous data about the use of the website. There is no storage of personal data of visitors to the website. If you subsequently visit another website in the Google Display Network, you will be shown advertisements that are highly likely to take into account previously accessed product and information areas. You can permanently deactivate the use of cookies by Google by following the following link and downloading and installing the plug-in provided there: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third-party providers by calling up the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative under http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the further information on the opt-out mentioned there.
