Collection of data on the website

The data collected can be divided into two types: Non-personal, mostly technical data and personal data. If you merely visit the saltybluespots website, you do not have to disclose any personal data. When you visit the website, however, access data such as pages called up or the name of the file called up, date and time are automatically collected and stored on the server for statistical purposes, without these data being directly related to your person. Personal data, are data with which you can be personally identified, for example: Name, address or e-mail address. These are collected on a voluntary basis (e.g. during the ordering process) and are only information that you provide to saltybluespots.

Processing of personal data

Personal data is only collected and used by saltybluespots if this is legally permitted or if you consent to the collection of data. As a rule, you can see which data is stored, for example name, e-mail address and message when using the order form.

The personal data provided for the purpose of ordering goods (such as name, e-mail address, postal address, payment data) will be used by saltybluespots to fulfil and process the contract.
