HOW WE COLLECT AND USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
IF YOU USE OUR WEBSITE
We collect information, some of which contains Personal Data, that you provide directly to us when you choose to use our Website such as surveys, questionnaires, contests and the like. We use this data to personalise our Website and to optimize your customer experience when using our Website.
Moreover, we automatically collect information including Personal Data when you browse our Website or use our Internet Products, such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, error logs, and other similar information. Such aggregated information does not allow us to identify you and is used by us to analyse trends, to administer the Website, to monitor our Website’s use, and to gather general information about the use of our Website.
The legal basis for such processing of your Personal Data are our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) in customizing the content of our services in line with user preferences and in further improving our Website.
Please note that you are not legally required to provide us with your Personal Data. However, without your Personal Data we will not be able to provide you with the full range of our Website services.

If you place an order on our website, you will be asked to provide your email address, name, shipping address, billing address, telephone, payment details and optionally where you heard about Piccolo Plates.
We will use your name and email address to send you an order confirmation email and a shipping confirmation email. We will use your telephone number to confirm the delivery of your order. We will also use your payment details to process payment for your order and your shipping address and other contact details to deliver your order to you. Such processing of your Personal Data is necessary to process your order; the legal basis for such processing of your Personal Data is therefore Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Please note that you are contractually required to provide us with such Personal Data and that without such Personal Data we will not be able to send you order-related communications or to fulfil your order.

SOCIAL PLUG-INS AND OTHER THIRD-PARTY FEATURES

We use plug-ins of the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to enable our Website users to easily share content found on our Website and connect with their friends via such social networks. Whenever you view a page of our Website containing such plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers operated by provider of the social network. As a result, the content of the social plug-in is transferred by the network provider directly to your browser and embedded in our Website being shown. If you visit our Website whilst signed into your social network user account, information concerning your visit will be transferred to the network provider and the provider of the social network can assign your visit to our Website to your account with the social network. Please note that a data transfer is triggered already when you visit our Website, irrespective whether you interact with the plug-in. To prevent this you must log out of your social network account before visiting our Website.

We also use third-party service providers to offer or facilitate services on our behalf and share your Personal Data with such providers to the extent necessary for such providers to perform their services on our behalf. In particular, we use a mailing company to dispatch email marketing messages, payment service providers to bill you for goods and services and for credit card processing, specialist providers for payment collection and fraud screening, a shipping company to fulfil orders, a call centre provider to facilitate customer service, social media and other agencies to manage our social media and other advertising campaigns, a cloud provider for our CRM system and an external provider for the hosting and management of our website.
Some of the companies we share your Personal Data with as described above are located outside of the European Economic Area.
In order to grant sufficient protection of your Personal Data in this context, we use standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission according to Art. 46(2)(c) GDPR with such companies or certifications of such companies under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield according to Art. 45(1) GDPR.
