1.2 - How do we use this data?

Depending on how you use our website, how you interact with us, and what you allow us to share, the purpose for which we collect these tasks includes:

● To be able to complete your order and keep your account on our website. Vegobox collects and processes the data you voluntarily provide to Vegobox when creating and using an account. Your e-mail address is your login name and is also used for Vegobox to help you recover your password. As an account holder, you also provide your phone number so our freight suppliers can send sms-avier when your ordered products come to a representative. As an account holder, you also agree that Vegobox may contact you at your registered email address to access current offers for Vegobox members. The treatment is based on a balance of interests as a legal basis, where Vegobox's legitimate interest is that it is necessary to process the data to offer this service.
● To handle and answer questions and emails that come to our customer service.
● To improve and maintain the quality of our website, as well as monitor usage on the same.
● To send advertisements in case you approve this or otherwise, you may do so.
● For security reasons, for example to investigate fraud and, if necessary, to protect us or our subcontractors.
● To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

We refer to the following legal grounds, under the Data Protection Act, regarding our right to handle your personal data:

● Because it is necessary to handle personal information in order to establish a contract with you, or to prepare a contract with you (for example, we use your personal information to make payment and make a purchase when you place an order with us).
● Because we have received your approval (for example, when you contact our customer service, when you add information about you to your profile or when you approve we send you advertising).
● Because it is in our legal interest as an e-store to maintain and provide our services. We always want to know more about our customers' needs and wishes to offer the best possible products and customer experiences.

2. Marketing

When you register as a Vegobox subscriber, we ask for your permission to send emails, both regarding your subscription and other emails, such as our newsletter with tips, news in the Vegobranch and Vegobox, offers, recipes and discounts.

You can also be exposed for advertising to us on other websites as well as social media. These ads can be tailored to you by collecting data through cookies (which records your browsing history, which allows us to create ads for people who visited our website). If you see ads on social media, it may be due to collaborations with social media users who match the demographic profile of our customers. In some cases, this promotion may include sharing your email address with this network.

We share customer information to subcontractors as follows:

● With our subcontractors and companies that provide services to us, such as payment processors, distribution companies, warehouses and freight companies.
● With our corporate advisors and lawyers.
● With subcontractors working to prevent and detect the existence of fraud.
● With police or other government agencies, such as to report fraud or in accordance with a compelling request.

5. Storage

We hire subcontractors based around the world. Hence, your personal data may be handled in countries outside of Europe, including countries where you have a lower level of legal protection regarding your personal data than in your home country. If we send personal data outside the European Economic Area, we will ensure that your privacy rights are adequately protected, preferably in accordance with the EU's standard contractual clauses.

We will keep your personal information for as long as we need them in accordance with the above purpose, which means that the duration will vary depending on your interactions with us. For example, if you made a purchase with us, we will keep your information as long as required for billing, tax and insurance reasons. We may also keep our correspondence with you (for example, if you have made a complaint about a product) as long as necessary to protect us from legal requirements. When we no longer need to save information, we will delete it. Please note that we will save your e-mail address even if you opt out of our newsletter, to ensure that we do not send the newsletter to your address in the future, unless you contact us and ask us to delete it.

6. Security

Our website follows this regulatory framework and uses safe methods to ensure the protection of all credit card transactions. Encryption methods such as SSL are used to protect personal information sent to or from our secure communication channel website. While we do everything in our power to always protect personal information on our website, we can not guarantee the protection and integrity of data on our website.
