Are personal data collected through Gecoshop.com transferred to third parties?

The personal data of our customers is an important component of our work and is not part of our activities to transfer it to others.

For example, to fulfill orders, deliver packages, send traditional mail and emails, remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, provide search results and links (including lists and paid links), make credit card payments, and provide customer services. These providers only have access to the personal data that is necessary to carry out their tasks. We guarantee that they may not use the same data for other purposes and are also required to process personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and in accordance with applicable data protection regulations.

Promotional Offers

On some occasions we send offers to selected groups of Gecoshop.com

Business transfers

As our business is constantly developing, we may sell or buy stores, branches or production units. Typically, in such transactions, customers' personal data is part of the company's assets that are transferred, but remain subject to the commitments made in any previous Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer expressly gives his consent to proceed otherwise). In addition, in the unlikely event that the ownership of Gecoshop.com or substantially all of its assets are transferred to third parties, the personal data of customers will naturally be among the transferred assets.

In cases other than those mentioned above, you will be informed whenever your personal data is communicated to third parties and you will have the choice of whether or not to communicate your personal data to third parties. Whenever personal data is transferred to companies, entities or institutions based in countries outside the European Community, we will ensure that the data is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as indicated by current data protection legislation in the context of data communication to third parties as indicated above.

Is the security of my personal data guaranteed?

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data when sending it, using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information you enter.

Our security procedures imply that you may occasionally be asked for proof of your identity before revealing personal data.
