Privacy Policy

How does StyleSnipe deal with the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect on 25 May 2018. The GDPR contains new privacy rules that aim to protect your personal data more effectively. The current StyleSnipe Privacy policy has been established based on that new legislation.

What does this mean for you?
You share your details with us consciously and unconsciously, such as by visiting the StyleSnipe website or when you contact us. The Privacy policy describes in more detail how we handle your personal data. But, of course, your personal data is in safe hands with us. Below, we provide insights into how StyleSnipe deals with the privacy legislation in the context of the GDPR and what it means for you.

What is personal data, and whose personal data do we process?
Personal data is information about a person that directly or indirectly says something about that person. StyleSnipe is a platform where helping customers find their favourite product is one of our goals. For that reason, we collect and save the data of our visitors. For example, our data may include a visitor’s browser or contact details. Brands, however, provide specific contact information needed for themselves.

We process the personal data of customers, designers, and partner organisations, but also of individuals expressing interest in us and our services or of people affiliated with a company or organisation with whom we have, would like to have, or have had a collaboration.

We urge you to be careful when disclosing your personal data or other information. Personal data and additional information will not be private or confidential once published on the StyleSnipe website. StyleSnipe is not responsible for how others use such information. For example, if you post personal data, even if you later remove it, other individuals who saw that personal data might retain copies of it through other means. In addition, visitors, we or others may occasionally reproduce, publish, and distribute content from the StyleSnipe website.

For what purpose does StyleSnipe use your information?
StyleSnipe strives to provide our customers, brands, partners, and stakeholders with the most optimum personal service. It also applies, for example, for:

You give StyleSnipe permission to use your personal data for:

Who has access to your data?
Based on general agreements, the contact details provided by the user, especially for this purpose, are available on the StyleSnipe website. We only make non-publicly available personal data publicly available to other parties if necessary for our services. The parties to whom we grant access to your data can only use this information to provide you with a service on behalf of StyleSnipe. Some cookie developers have access to the information that cookies on our website collect. You can read more about this in our cookie statement and the privacy policy of these parties.

Securing your information
We seek to use reasonable organisational (i.e., procedures to identify, assess and mitigate any reasonably foreseeable internal and external risks to the security, confidentiality and or integrity of systems or files containing personal data and evaluate and improve safeguards as necessary), technical (e.g., two-factor authentication, encryption, secured cloud environment) and administrative measures (e.g., privacy roles, compliance, training) to protect personal data within our organisation. Unfortunately, no transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be completely secure, and the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

Retention period guidelines
We will not retain and use your information for longer than necessary. After a certain period, we will delete all our data about you. Or we will use your information anonymously because we require specific data for internal administration. Guidelines for the retention periods are:

Use of the website
You are responsible for keeping your account credentials secure, for all acts that occur under your account, and for the actions of anyone else who accesses the StyleSnipe website on your behalf. You can’t use the website for illegal purposes, post hateful content, harass others, or do anything else damaging.

To access the website’s features, you become a ‘user’. All personal information we collect about your visit to our website is subject to our Privacy policy; data collected by the partner brands and payment processor is subject to their equivalent policy. You agree to keep all visitor information accurate, current and complete for so long as you are using the StyleSnipe website.

You must immediately inform StyleSnipe of any suspected unauthorised use of both the platform and the community. StyleSnipe cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from a failure to safeguard your personal data.

What are your rights?
Of course, you maintain control over your information. Would you like to inspect and receive a copy of your personal data? Or would you like to amend or delete your information, limit the use of your information or modify your email preferences? No problem. Let us know by email. In that way, you can also object to using your data or indicate that your privacy precedes our interests. In that case, we will re-examine the situation.

StyleSnipe will, as much as possible, see that this website functions correctly and does not contain malicious elements or viruses that could harm computer hardware or software functioning.
