Terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are as follows:
Data Subject, A data subject is any person whose personal data is being collected, held or processed.
Data Controller, a person who obtains information from the data subject in question.
We may use the information we collect from you when you register, make a purchase, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:
Collected data may consist of the following, by the browser types and versions utilized, operating system used by the accessing system, website from which an accessing system reaches our website, sub websites, internet protocol address (IP address), internet service provider of accessing system, and other similar data and information that may be used in the event of data attacks on our information technology systems.
This information is not sold to third parties or use or for profit. This information is used to ensure we are delivering the content correctly from our website, optimizing our websites and advertisements, ensure long term viability of our information technology systems as well as website technology, and provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for criminal prosecution in a potential cyber-attack or other reasonable criminal cases.
The data subject has the ability to register on the website of the controller with the indication of their personal data. Any personal data transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. Personal data entered by a data subject is collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for the data controller’s purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject–date and time of the registration can be stored. The storage of this data takes place in the background; this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and if necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.
Newsletter Subscription and Tracking
Users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data is transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
Our company newsletter informs our customers and business partners regularly of company updates, changes in products/services, new inventory or posts, and upcoming product sales. The company can only send the email to data subjects if the data subject has a valid email and the data subject registers to receive the newsletter. A confirmation email is then sent to the data subject to confirm their registration or to be removed if desired, which is called a double opt-in.
During the registration of the newsletter, we may also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary to identify the possible misuse of e-mail addresses as a means of legal protection of the controller.
The data collected from the newsletter opt-in will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers may be informed by email as necessary regarding issues with the newsletter, modifications to the newsletter, or technical difficulties. The consent provided for the newsletter may be revoked by the data subject at any time. This can be completed by emailing [email protected] or using the ‘unsubscribe’ button located within the newsletter email.
Newsletters are tracked using pixels. Pixels are embedded coding located within emails or websites that records analysis of consumer activity on the websites identified. This information allows for statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. The pixel will also identify when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were accessed by the data subjects.
Personal data collected by the pixels or lead pages are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters that are better tailored to the interests of the data subject.
Quick electronic contract to our business as well as direct communication with us, may be used to transmit data information. If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject are automatically stored. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
Website Blog and Review Comments
Individuals are able to leave website reviews and comments on blog posts, products, and other aspects of the website. If a data subject leaves a comment or a review, the comments made by the data subject are stored and published, including the data subject’s comments, pseudonym, and the internet service provider (ISP) address. The storage of the IP address takes place in the event the data subject violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content. This collection of personal data will not be passed to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.
Right To Object
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on ground relating to his/her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We do not process personal data in the event of the objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the process which override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Right to Withdraw Data Protection Consent
Each data subject shall have the right the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to the processing of his or her personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may at any time directly contact our Data Protection Officer of Payne Well Distributions at [email protected] or another employee of the controller.
