For the processing of your personal data is responsible:
EsQualo Fashion B.V.
VAT number: NL 851350872 B01
Chamber of Commerce number: 54558832
When using the website www.esqualo.nl, www.esqualo.com or www.esqualo.com/de we obtain certain data. This may include personal data. Personal data is information that can be traced to you as an individual, such as your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number. But also your IP address, your customer number at EsQualo, your order history and surfing habits are personal data.
Personal data is only used with your permission and only to send your order or to carry out the service you have requested. We obtain this information from you when you visit our website, when you fill in certain details, for example when creating an account or filling in a form. It is also possible that we receive your data via other parties or other persons (for example, via someone who buys a gift for you and has it delivered to your address). We will only receive your details from other parties if you have given us your permission to do so.
What information do we collect?
1. Processing your order
We need your personal data to process your order. Otherwise we will not be able to keep you informed of the status of your order and deliver it to you. This includes, for example, gender, name, date of birth, phone number, email address, billing and delivery address and payment information.
EsQualo does not register any special personal information, for example, on religion, health, sexual orientation, origin, political affiliation and the like.
In certain sections of the website you can choose to register. Incidentally, it is not compulsory to create an account immediately. If you do not create an account, your customer data will not be stored in the customer database. The disadvantage of this is that you cannot log in to view the status and purchase history. You will also have to re-enter your data each time you place a new order.
We do not pass on your personal data to third parties, unless this is legally required or necessary when sending an order. By law, we must retain the data relating to your purchases for 7 years.
2. Data in your account
After registering on the webshop, you can log into your account via "Customer Login". In this account, we save your customer data, such as your name, addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth and customer number. You can also see your purchase history in your account. If you have added items to your Wishlist, we will also save them for you in your account.
If you want to change your personal data, you can do it yourself in your account. If you want to remove your data permanently, you can contact our customer service. Your details will be removed from our system within 30 days.
3. Data for user-friendliness of the webshop
To make sure you can shop as conveniently as possible and the webshop functions as well as possible, we use a cookie from Google Analytics. This will only be placed after your consent. We have concluded a processing agreement with Google in order to make agreements about how to handle our data. Through Google Analytics we collect your IP address, information about your browser and information about the type of device you use (desktop, tablet or mobile) when you visit esqualo.nl. Furthermore, Google allows you to use the obtained analytics information for other Google services.
When you use the search function on our website, your search terms combined with the technical characteristics may be stored. The data obtained will be stored indefinitely for the purpose of statistical analysis.
Google Analytics is also used to analyse the effectiveness of certain online campaigns. We use the following advertising functions of Google, with the following purposes:
We use remarketing (Google Analytics) because we want to get in touch with you again and make you suitable offers. These functions are only enabled once you have given your consent to the placing of the cookies.

- Double Click Platform integration with Google Analytics: We use this to gain more insight and to be able to offer advertisements in a more targeted way, for example via Google Adwords.
- Display reports from Google Display Network: we use this to gain more insight into which users have seen our paid advertisements on other websites. This allows our ads to be more specific and relevant.
- Integrated services for advertising purposes, for which Google Analytics collects data. Including data collected through ad cookies and IDs.
Google Signals is used to collect additional data on the use of multiple devices. You can opt out of this via this link. In My Activity you can see which data is collected from you and delete it if necessary.
We use customer match to increase our awareness. This means that we target e-mail addresses known to us. The email addresses are encrypted and only stored after permission has been given. We share these customized e-mail addresses encrypted with Google. Advertisements are shown on YouTube, Google search engine, Google Display network, Google Shopping, Gmail, Facebook and Instagram. Would you rather not be approached in this way? Then you can opt out.
We also collect automated information on the use of our website via cookies. This enables us to compile statistics on the use of the website and to send more targeted communications. Facebook and Google Adwords also make this type of data available to us via Audience Insight. We do this to be able to form a better picture of the target group and the visitors, such as their interests, ages and locations. This allows us to improve the website based on the wishes and preferences of the users. This data is tracked via tracking cookies, to which you must give your prior consent. See more about tracking cookies in the cookie statement.
We also collect demographic data. To do this, we use Google Analytics demographic and interest category reports. This allows us to learn more about website users, such as age, gender, interests, on an anonymous and aggregated level. We use this to customize the website for the best possible experience. This does not contain any personal information that identifies the user as an individual.
Google may provide information to third parties if they are legally obliged to do so or if these third parties process the information on Google's behalf.
If you take part in a promotion or competition, we will ask for your details, such as your name, address and/or e-mail address. We need this information to designate a winner and to send the prize. We will only collect this information with your permission. The terms and conditions of the relevant campaigns will explain what your details will be used for.

7. Where do we store your data?
We store your data within the European Economic Area ("EEA"). However, some of the data that we collect may be transferred to, or stored at, a destination outside the EEA. This is for example the case with external service providers which are based outside the EU, such as Google and DotDigital. We have good agreements with these parties and we make sure that this happens in a safe and lawful way.

Providing to third parties
We will not share your personal data with third parties, unless these are our partners who are involved in the execution of the service, such as sending an order. Think for example of a DHL that has to deliver your package.
Our partners are (also) located outside the EU. We therefore ask your explicit permission before they receive data.
Data outside the EU
Outside the EU / EEA, data may only be transferred to countries with an 'appropriate security level' according to the Dutch Data Protection Authority. Dotdigital and Google are based in the UK and the USA. This is not designated as a country with an adequate level of security. Fortunately, both Dotdigital and Google are certified for the EU-US Privacy Shield. On that basis, we are permitted to share personal data with them.

- Access to personal data is protected with a user name and password
- We make use of secure connections (SSL) with which all information between you and our website is protected when you enter your personal data.
The personal data described above will be kept as long as necessary to process your order (including warranty), or for as long as necessary to complete your request. For order data, we have a tax retention obligation of 7 years for payment data.
In addition, we use your statistical data for 50 months for the described statistical purposes. These data are then deleted, unless there is a legal obligation that requires longer retention.
