Data Protection Policy

The saami crafts website can be used without submitting any personal data. However, if the data subject is to make use of certain services, processing of personal data may become necessary. If this is the case, and there is no legal basis for such processing, then saami crafts shall obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, email address and telephone number of the data subject, is always conducted in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and with country-specific data protection legislation applicable to saami crafts. This data protection policy is intended to inform the general public on the nature, scope and purpose of personal data captured, used and processed by saami crafts – and to explain the corresponding rights of the data subject.

As the data controller, saami crafts has implemented a number of technological and organisational measures to ensure robust protection of the personal data processed via the saami crafts website. Nevertheless, transmission of data via the Internet is subject to vulnerabilities; therefore, absolute and total protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, the data subject can choose to provide personal data to saami crafts by alternative methods, for example by telephone.

To achieve this aim, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance. The terms used in this data protection policy include, but are not limited to, the following:

a) Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

c) Processing

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

e) Profiling

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Data controller

Controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

j) Third party

Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

k) Consent

3. Cookies

The saami crafts website makes use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that a web browser downloads and stores on a computer.

Many cookies include a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific web browser to which the cookie was saved. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the specific browser of the data subject from other browsers that contain other cookies. A specific web browser can be recognised and identified by its unique cookie ID.

By means of cookies, saami crafts can provide users of its website with services that are more user-friendly than would otherwise be possible, and can improve the website in the interests of the user. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their login data each time they visit the website because this is stored by the website and the cookie on the user’s computer system. A further example is the cookie used by a shopping cart in an online shop. Via the cookie, the online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.

The data subject can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on their web browser software accordingly. Moreover, existing cookies can be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software. This is possible with all leading browsers. The data subject should be aware, however, that by doing so they may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

4. Capture of general data and information

The saami crafts website captures a variety of general data and information each time the website is visited. This data and information is stored in server log files. This data and information may include the type and version of browser used, the operating system, the website which linked the data subject to our website (referrer URL), the individual website pages accessed, the date and time of website access, the subject’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, the Internet service provider and other similar data and information that serve cyber security purposes in the event of attacks on our IT systems.

saami crafts cannot draw any conclusions about the data subject from this data and information. Instead, this information is required to correctly deliver the content of our website, to improve the content of our website and advertising for it, to ensure the ongoing correct operation and function of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information needed for criminal investigation and prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This data and information is captured anonymously; it is analysed by saami crafts for statistical purposes, and in order to improve data protection and data security within our organisation, and in order to ultimately ensure the best possible degree of protection for personal data processed by us. The anonymous data stored in server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by the data subject.

5. SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If you are under an obligation to share your payment information (e.g. account number if you give us the authority to debit your bank account) with us after you have entered into a fee-based contract with us, this information is required to process payments.

Payment transactions using common modes of paying (Visa/MasterCard, debit to your bank account) are processed exclusively via encrypted SSL or TLS connections. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the communication with us is encrypted, third parties will not be able to read the payment information you share with us.

6. Registration

The data subject may register for our website by entering personal information. The personal data transmitted to saami crafts is apparent from the corresponding registration screen. The personal data entered by the data subject is captured and stored exclusively for internal purposes. saami crafts is entitled to make this personal data available to one or multiple processors, such as, without limitation, a parcel service, who shall also exclusively use the data for internal purposes of a kind attributable to saami crafts.

Furthermore, by registering on the saami crafts website, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet service provider (ISP), and the date and time of registration, are captured. This data is stored to prevent misuse of our services and, where necessary, to investigate any criminal offences. The storage of this data is required to protect saami crafts’ legitimate interests. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so on or it serves the purposes of law enforcement.

Registration by the data subject, in conjunction with the voluntary submission of personal data, helps saami crafts to offer the data subject content or services that by nature can only be offered to registered users. Registered users are at liberty to modify the personal data provided upon registration at any time or to have it erased completely from saami crafts’ data records.

Upon request, saami crafts will at any time disclose to the data subject what personal data is stored on them. Furthermore, the data will be corrected or deleted upon request or notification, insofar as there are no statutory retention duties to the contrary. The data subject may contact Ms Astrid Gregor or Ms Sandra Doebele in this regard.

The data deposited with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter or the newsletter service provider and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored for other purposes with us remain unaffected.
After you unsubscribe from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist is used only for this purpose and not merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

If personal data were published by saami crafts, and if our company is obliged to erase the personal data in accordance with Article 17(1) of the GDPR, then we shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested the erasure of all links to such personal data and erasure of copies or replicas of such personal data by these other data controllers, insofar as the processing of this data is not necessary.

13. eCommerce and payment service providers

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the establishment, content organization or change of the legal relationship (data inventory). These actions are taken on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual actions. We collect, process and use personal data concerning the use of this website (usage data) only to the extent that this is necessary to make it possible for users to utilize the services and to bill for them.

The collected customer data shall be eradicated upon completion of the order or the termination of the business relationship. This shall be without prejudice to any statutory retention mandates.

Data transfer upon closing of contracts for online stores, retailers and the shipment of merchandise

We share personal data with third parties only if this is necessary in conjunction with the handling of the contract; for instance, with companies entrusted with the shipment of goods or the financial institution tasked with the processing of payments. Any further transfer of data shall not occur or shall only occur if you have expressly consented to the transfer. Any sharing of your data with third parties in the absence of your express consent, for instance for advertising purposes, shall not occur.

The basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or for pre-contractual actions. Data transfer upon closing of contracts for services and digital content
We share personal data with third parties only if this is necessary in conjunction with the handling of the contract; for instance, with the financial institution tasked with the processing of payments.

Any further transfer of data shall not occur or shall only occur if you have expressly consented to the transfer. Any sharing of your data with third parties in the absence of your express consent, for instance for advertising purposes, shall not occur.

The basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or for pre-contractual actions.

PayPal

Among other options, we offer payment via PayPal on this website. The provider of this payment processing service is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as “PayPal”).
If you choose payment via PayPal, we will share the payment information you enter with PayPal.

You have the option to at any time revoke your consent to the processing of your data. Such a revocation shall not have any impact on the effectiveness of data processing transactions that occurred in the past.

14. Legal basis for data processing

Article 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing activities that require consent for a particular processing purpose. If processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to whom the person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, without limitation, for the delivery of goods, or for the provision of another service or consideration, then such processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same shall apply to processing activities necessary to performing pre-contractual tasks, for example, without limitation, responding to queries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that necessitates the processing of personal data, such as, without limitation, compliance with taxation obligations, then such processing is on the basis of Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. Under rare circumstances, processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person. This might for example be the case if a visitor to our business was injured and it would be necessary to provide their name, age, health insurance or other vital details to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this instance, processing is on the basis of Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Moreover, some processing activities might be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR.

This latter provision is the basis for processing activities that are not covered by any of the previously mentioned provisions when processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest on the part of our company or a third party insofar as this is not overridden by the interests, fundamental rights or fundamental freedoms of the data subject. Such processing activities are permitted in particular, without limitation, because they were specifically named by the European legislature. The legislature expressed the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

15. Legitimate interests of the controller or third party regarding the processing of data

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, then our legitimate interest is to conduct our business for the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

16. Period for which personal data may be stored

The criterion for the storage period for personal data shall be the corresponding statutory retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely erased, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

17. Statutory or contractual requirements to provide personal data; or as a prerequisite for conclusion of a contract; obligation on the part of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We hereby inform you that the provision of personal data is under certain circumstances a statutory requirement (e.g. under tax law) or may result from contractual requirements (e.g. information required on the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract for the data subject to provide us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the data subject can provide personal data, the data subject must contact us. We inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.

18. Automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not deploy automated decision-making mechanisms, such as profiling.
