YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS
SCOPE AND CONSENT
You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional emails, SMS messages, telephone calls and postal mail from us by using the opt-out methods described below (see “How You Can Opt Out of Marketing Communications”). If we determine that your explicit consent is needed to send promotional communications, we will obtain that consent before or at the time of data collection.
Global Shop Solutions is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives, and under Privacy Shield we may subsequently transfer that data to a third party acting as an agent on our behalf. Global Shop Solutions complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU, including the onward transfer liability provisions.
With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, Global Shop Solutions is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, Global Shop Solutions may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
If you have an unresolved privacy or data security concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request.
Under certain conditions, more fully described on the Privacy Shield website https://www.privacyshield.gov, you may invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.
You acknowledge (a) that you are accessing a Site that is based in the United States, (b) that you are providing personal information to a company in the United States, and (c) that Global Shop Solutions must adhere to laws of the United States. You agree that personal information collected on our Site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Global Shop Solutions, its affiliates, partners, downstream service providers, or agents maintain facilities, and while in such jurisdictions may be subject to access pursuant to the laws of those jurisdictions. Each of these countries has different privacy laws that afford varying levels of protection for your personal information, and such laws may be less stringent or may not be as comprehensive as those laws that exist in your country.
HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
When you visit our Site, we collect the following types of personal information in order to provide you with use of and access to our Site and to help us personalize and improve your experience:
Information you provide to us: We may collect personal information, such as your name, address, phone, email and other similar information that you enter directly onto or in connection with our Site.

Service Provider data collection and processing: In some cases, Global Shop Solutions administers the Site on behalf of our customers, and in these circumstances we have no direct relationship with the individuals about, for, or from whom the personal information is collected. If you are a customer or end user of a Global Shop Solutions direct customer (for example, you are an end user of our customer’s product or service) and you have questions or complaints about how your information is processed, then please contact our customer directly. You understand that your use of the Site may be subject to terms and policies provided by our customer and that Global Shop Solutions is not a party to such agreements.
HOW WE USE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT; PURPOSES AND LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING
Our primary purpose for collecting and processing personal information is to provide you with a secure, smooth, and efficient visitor and customer experience. We may also use your personal information to:

- for such other purposes as required or permitted by law (the legal basis for processing is our compliance with our legal obligations).
HOW WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES
Global Shop Solutions partners with and occasionally hires other companies to provide services on its behalf. Personal information may be shared with these companies; however, we will only share your personal information to accomplish the purposes for which we collected the personal information. These third parties are contractually required to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and are contractually prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
We may also share your information as follows:
- with your consent;
- when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property;
- to protect your safety or the safety of others;
- to investigate fraud or respond to a government, judicial or other legal request;
- with Global Shop Solutions group entities; and
- to comply with the law.
HOW WE PROTECT AND STORE PERSONAL INFORMATION
We endeavor to protect the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to try to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities.
HOW WE USE TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Do Not Track (DNT) is an optional browser setting that allows you to express your preferences regarding tracking by advertisers and other third-parties. We do not currently respond to DNT signals. Therefore, please be advised that third party web analytics companies may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across our website and other online properties.
How You Can Access or Change Your Personal information
Upon request, Global Shop Solutions will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. Depending on the Site you use, you may access, correct, or request deletion of your personal information by logging in to your account, or you may contact us at [email protected]. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
In the event Global Shop Solutions processes information about you on behalf of one of our customers, please direct your privacy inquiries and requests for access, correction or deletion of personal information to the customer. If a customer requests that we remove information, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
We may need to retain your information in order to continue providing a service to you. In certain circumstances, we may be required by law to retain your personal information for a period of time.
