Privacy Policy and disclaimer

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In the following we will inform you in detail about the handling of your data.

          1.  Access data and hosting

You represent and warrant that (a) you are of sufficient age to use our services and website and can create binding legal obligations in connection with your use, (b) you are legally authorized to act on behalf of those you represent and accept these terms and conditions on their behalf, and (c) the information supplied by you, or members of your group is true and correct.

These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the website.

Hosting services by a third-party provider

As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. All data that is collected as part of the use of this website or in the forms provided in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework explained here.

This service provider is located within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

You agree that due to uncertainty caused by COVID-19, ABSOLUT Sport has strongly encouraged the purchase of travel protection coverage including cancel for any reason coverage if and when available, and that should you fail to purchase travel protection coverage, ABSOLUT Sport shall not be liable to any losses howsoever arising.  You agree that ABSOLUT Sport cannot be liable if your travel protection plan does not include protections for issues that may arise related to COVID-19.

Our data security protections meet the“reasonable security requirements” of the New York “Shield Act”. While we do our best to protect your information, no information transferred over the internet or stored electronically can be guaranteed to be completely secure and you provide your information to us at your own risk.

We’ll only retain your information for a reasonable period of time, or for so long as either you or the law allows.

          2. Data collection and use for contract processing

We collect personal data, such as your name, address, e-mail, phone number and payment information, if you provide it to us, as part of your order or when you contact us (e.g. using the contact form or email). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data to process the contract or to process your contact and you cannot complete the order or send the contact without specifying them. We use the data you have provided to process contracts and process your inquiries. If you happen to fill in the contact page but for some reason don’t complete the order, you will still be considered to have provided us with your information.

If you’re ordering with others or for someone else, you will have to give us their information as well, for example their name and date of birth. It is your responsibility to ensure that they are aware that you have done so, and also that they accept how we use and process their information as well as yours.

           3. Data transfer

In order to fulfill the contract, we pass on your data to the shipping

company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the ordered goods. Depending on which payment servisse provider you select in the ordering process, we will pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institute commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us, or to the selected payment service. When you pay for your order, we don’t store your card details – instead we use an encrypted authorization ‘token’ issued by your payment provider to collect the payments. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. The privacy policy of the payment service provider applies in these cases so you should inquire with them if you have questions about how they use your data.

For Residents of the European Union due to the nature of our business and the arrangements you have chosen, it may be necessary for your data to be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”)

and may not be subject to the same level of data protection controls as within the EEA. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is handled securely.

           4. Email newsletter

E-mail advertising with registration for the newsletter

If you register for our newsletter, we will use the data required for this or separately provided by you in order to regularly send you our e-mail newsletter based on your consent.

Unsubscribing from the newsletter is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided in the newsletter. After unsubscribing, we will delete your e-mail address unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, as permitted by law and about which we will inform you in this declaration.

The newsletter is sent as part of processing on our behalf by a service provider to whom we pass on your e-mail address for this purpose.
