HOW WE USE AND PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA

When you shop with us, you provide us with your personal data. In so doing, you give your consent for us to store and use these data to enable us to meet our obligations to you and provide you with the best possible service and deals.

We do not disclose your data for marketing purposes to any third party outside of Gudrun Sjödén. We only disclose your data to our trusted partners and suppliers (in some cases outside the EU) where such disclosure is required for the performance of our obligations.

We use your personal data in the following ways:
 

In connection with online purchases 
We retain your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, payment details, payment history and order information so that we can process your purchases. We use your data to process your order and any returns, to notify you of delivery status, manage payments and provide you with the best possible service when you contact us.

We only keep your data while you are an active customer and while you have the right to complain, i.e. 36 months from the date on which you make your last purchase, unless we are required by the authorities to retain the data for a longer period. We use the data for the performance of our obligations under our purchase agreement with you.
 

Customer service
It is necessary for us to process your data to enable us to provide an optimal service when you require information about our products, technical support or advice via e-mail, our chat service, phone or our social media platforms. The data we process are name, address, phone number, payment details and history, order information, customer number and, where necessary, date of birth, credit information and any previous correspondence.

We retain any personal data contained in telephone calls for 90 days, data in e-mail correspondence for 24 months and other data about you for 36 months after your last purchase. This processing is necessary for our mutual legitimate interests to enable us to offer you customer service help and support.


Marketing
We use your personal data to inform you about our products and services via regular mail, e-mail, text message, phone, social media and other electronic channels. In order to do this, we process your name, e-mail address, phone number and your postal address. We also use data about products that you have purchased or shown an interest in to get to know you and be able to offer you information about products that we think you might like.

The processing of your personal data is based on your consent when you agree to receive marketing communications. Exceptions to this are direct marketing communications via postal mail (including catalogues), marketing via social media, and carefully-selected offers sent via e-mail to you based on what your legitimate interest is when you purchase goods from us. Your data are retained for up to 36 months, but you have the right to contact us at any time to stop the processing of your data.
 

My account
We process your personal data to make it easy for you to access and manage your data (contact details, order history, order details, subscriptions and so on). 

To be able to do this, we use the data that you have provided us with, such as your name, phone number, address, e-mail address, order history and customer number. These data are retained and processed for as long as you are an active customer with us, i.e. for up to 36 months from the date on which you make your last purchase, or until you decide to delete your account. The processing of these data is based on our mutual legitimate interests as they are necessary for us to be able to offer you the service.


The Gudrun Club
We use your data to be able to manage your club rewards and send you news and offers on our products and services via regular mail, e-mail, text message, social media and other electronic channels. To be able to do this, we will use data such as your name, address, e-mail address and customer number. We will also use your order history to provide you with personal offers. 

We only keep your data while you are a member of our club or while you are an active customer, i.e. 36 months from the date on which you make your last purchase. The processing is necessary for the performance of the loyalty scheme membership agreement.


Competitions
When you take part in our competitions, we process your data in order to be able to contact you with information about the competition, to contact the winners and to send out and follow up prizes. To be able to do this, we process your contact details (name, address and phone number), possibly your e-mail address and information that was sent in for the competition. 

We retain these data until the competition has ended, the winners have been contacted and the prizes have been presented. The processing of your personal data is based on your consent when you choose to take part in our competitions.
