Trust is the foundation of Cosmas-hardware.com and includes trusting us to do the right thing with your information. Two main values guide us as we develop our products and services. These values should help you better understand how we think about your information and privacy.
Your information belongs to you
We carefully analyze what types of information we need to provide our services, and we try to limit the information we collect to only what we really need. Where possible, we delete or anonymize this information when we no longer need it. When building our website, we did so with privacy in mind. Our guiding principle is that your information belongs to you, and we aim to only use your information to your benefit.
We protect your information from others
If a third party requests your personal information, we will refuse to share it unless you give us permission or we are legally required. When we are legally required to share your personal information, we will tell you in advance, unless we are legally forbidden.
Why we process your information
We generally process your information when we need to do so to fulfill a contractual obligation (for example, to process and ship your order), or where we or someone we work with needs to use your personal information for a reason related to their business (for example, to provide you with a service). European law calls these reasons “legitimate interests.” These “legitimate interests” include:
We only process personal information for these “legitimate interests” after considering the potential risks to your privacy—for example, by providing clear transparency into our privacy practices, offering you control over your personal information where appropriate, limiting the information we keep, limiting what we do with your information, who we send your information to, how long we keep your information, or the technical measures we use to protect your information.
Your rights over your information
We believe you should be able to access and control your personal information no matter where you live. Depending on how you use Cosmas-hardware.com, you may have the right to request access to, correct, amend, delete, restrict, or object to certain uses of your personal information (for example, direct marketing). We will not provide you with a different level of service if you exercise any of these rights.
If you buy something from Cosmas-hardware.com and wish to exercise these rights over information about your purchase, please email us at email@example.com.
Please note that if you send us a request relating to your personal information, we have to make sure that it is you before we can respond. In order to do so, we may ask to see documentation verifying your identity, which we will discard after verification.
If you would like to designate an authorized agent to exercise your rights for you, please email us from the email address we have on file for you. If you email us from a different email address, we cannot determine if the request is coming from you and will not be able to accommodate your request. In your email, please include the name and email address of your authorized agent.
If you are not happy with our response to a request, you can contact us to resolve the issue. You also have the right to contact your local data protection or privacy authority at any time.
How we protect your information
We work hard to protect your information, and to ensure the security and integrity of our website. Our platform is hosted by Shopify, Inc., which uses independent auditors to assess the security of our data storage and systems that process financial information. However, we all know that no method of transmission over the Internet, and method of electronic storage, can be 100% secure. This means we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.
