Collection of other data
We also collect non-personal data, i.e. data that cannot be directly linked to a particular individual (gender, age, language preference, location).
Use and storage of collected personal data
We can use any personal data we have collected to display for customers SELLER product news, campaigns and upcoming events. Customers who wish to opt out from our newsletter mailing list, or do not wish to get information about products that might interest them, may unsubscribe from the mailing lists at any time.
We also use personal data that we collect to deliver goods, and to fulfill obligations that we may have assumed towards the customer.
To ensure better customer service, SELLER may disclose information about individual users to a third party who provides services to SELLER and is contractually bound to keeping any shared information confidential. Such third party may be, for instance, our partner whose duty is to deliver goods sold in our Web Store, or provide hire-purchase services.
SELLER stores all personal data of a client until the loyal customer contract terminates. Data that SELLER must store pursuant to law (e.g. accounting data) are stored by SELLER in accordance with the provisions of law.
Alterations to personal data
Customers can see, alter, and supplement their personal data, collected for the purpose of identification and communication with them, on our website in the “Personal Info” section.
Should the change involve your e-mail address (your www.water4drinking.com website user name), you are kindly asked to notify us thereof, because customers cannot change their e-mail address themselves.
Security of personal data

Customers have the right to demand termination of the processing of their data, ask about how their data are used, request that their data be transmitted in a commonly used format either to themselves or to a third party. In order to avoid misuse of customer data and rights, such requests may only be submitted in a format that makes it possible to identify the person submitting that request (signed digitally or personally at the company’s office). We have the right to respond to such requests within 30 days.
We regard a request to terminate processing of data as a request to terminate the loyal customer contract.
