Preamble

Gina Renee Designs, Zugerstrasse 94, 6415 Arth, Switzerland (hereinafter, The Provider), is the author of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all users of The Provider’s services insofar as disclosure of information regarding the gathering and dissemination practices of personal data processed on The Provider’s website. In particular, this includes Customers who have concluded a contract with The Provider for The Provider’s services, their employees, and website visitors. Furthermore, The Provider may declare that the Privacy Policy applies to other contractual partners on a contractual basis. For the sake of simplicity, all persons whose personal data is processed are hereinafter referred to as Customers or The Customer.

The Provider is responsible for the careful and conscientious handling of the personal information of its Customers. The Provider is responsible for the collection, processing, disclosure, storage, and protection of the personal information of its Customers. The Provider ensures compliance with the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP) insofar as the protected data of Swiss Customers is concerned and with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) insofar as the protected data of Customers from the EU area is concerned.

Customers may revoke the consent they have given under this Privacy Policy at any time with effect for the future (see Section __, last paragraph).

1.) Contact details

The data controller for data processing is:

Gina Renee Designs
Zugerstrasse 94

6415 Arth

Switzerland

2.) Data of Customers from the EU area

In addition to Swiss law, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR) is applicable to the processing of data of Customers from the EU area. See also Section 13 (additional regulations for Customers from the EU area).

3.) Information The Provider Collects

When visiting The Provider’s website (without login)

When Customers visit The Provider’s online presence outside the protected login area, the web server technology automatically logs general technical visit information. This includes, among other things, the IP address of the device being used, which is, however, anonymized by Google before being stored so that it can no longer be assigned to The Customer. Google uses the _anonymizeIp() method for this purpose. This also includes information on the browser type, the Internet service provider, and the operating system being used.

  1. a. Purpose of the processing of personal data / Data recipients

The Provider processes the collected data in order to be able to continuously improve its products and services, to manage the use of and access to the applications, products, and information, to maintain its business relationship with The Customers, to monitor and improve the performance of its offer, to detect, prevent or clarify illegal activities and to send The Customers offers, information and marketing materials about products or services which The Provider, based on the data, assumes could be of interest to The Customers. The data may also be disclosed to selected third-party companies, institutes, and/or legally authorized government authorities, both domestic and foreign, for processing, storage, and use as part of the above-mentioned purposes. If personal information is processed or stored in countries that do not ensure adequate data protection compared to Swiss data protection law, The Provider shall require the processor under contractual obligation to fully comply with the relevant provisions of the FADP or – where the data of Customers from the EU area is concerned – with the GDPR.

 

The Provider has some of the aforementioned processes and services carried out by service providers who are based mainly within the US but also within the UK, the EU,  Switzerland, or elsewhere and who have been commissioned in accordance with data protection regulations. These are, in particular, companies in the categories of IT services, payment transactions, email service providers, billing, collection, and consulting, as well as sales and marketing and service providers used as part of order processing contracts.

  1. b. Personally Identifiable Information

Voluntary submissions of personally identifiable information can occur for various reasons, such as if The Customer requests to receive information about The Provider’s services or if The Customer subscribes to one of The Provider’s mailing lists. If The Customer subscribes to one of The Provider mailing lists, we generally collect The Customer’s name, email address, and optionally, The Customer’s telephone or other information if The Customer provides it.

The Provider collects personally identifiable information, like names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and sometimes credit card information when such information is voluntarily submitted by The Customer. Most of The Customer’s information is stored in a third-party Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, not directly on The Provider’s servers, including all payment information.

The Provider will only use The Customer’s personal information for the following purposes: (1) to deliver the products and/or services to The Customer that The Customer has requested; (2) to validate The Customer’s compliance with the terms and conditions; (3) for content improvement and feedback purposes; (4) to reach The Customer, when necessary, regarding The Customer’s use of the web site or product(s), and (5) for the few situations described below to serve The Customer better. The Provider will NEVER share The Customer’s personally identifiable information with third parties, other than plugins used already on the site, unless The Customer has given The Provider explicit permission to do so, such as in order to fulfill a third-party offer that The Customer has accepted from The Provider. By allowing The Provider to collect this information, The Customer will be able to receive information on other products and services that may be of interest to The Customer, including related third-party offers that The Provider may send to The Customer. The Customer also enables The Provider to personalize The Customer’s experience in order to get the highest quality of service. The Provider may also use this information to contact The Customer about joint venture opportunities if it appears that The Customer would be a suitable joint venture partner.

By submitting their email address on this website, The Customer agrees to receive emails fromThe Provider. The Customer can cancel the participation in any of these email lists at any time by clicking the opt-out link or other unsubscribe option included in the respective email. The Provider only sends emails to people who have given the authorization to be reached, either directly or through a third party. The Provider does not send unsolicited commercial emails.

  1. c. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

The Provider may also collect various types of non-personally identifiable information in order to improve The Customer’s experience, measure site activity to identify future improvements, and compile aggregate data to help serve site visitors better. The Provider may use such data to tailor advertisements, develop proper survey questions, improve The Provider’s business, etc.

The Provider may use session and persistent cookies; session logs, web beacons, GIF/pixel tags, banner ads, third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), third-party retargeting networks that may display The Provider’s advertisements on other sites, and third-party networks that serve user-requested emails (e.g., refer-a-friend emails) to collect non-personally identifiable or other aggregated information about site visitors.

Cookies are text files used by web browsers to store The Customer’s preferences and enhance The Customer’s user experience with The Provider’s website. Third-party retargeting networks may also use cookies to display The Provider’s advertisements to The Customer on other sites. The Customer can learn more about opting out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

The Customer does have the option to configure most web browsers to NOT accept cookies. However, disabling cookies may keep The Customer from accessing some functions or services on The Provider’s website or the web-hosted software that runs on The Provider’s website.

Emails or newsletters that The Provider sends electronically may use web beacons or pixel tags to gather email metrics and information to improve the reader’s experience, such as the number of emails that are opened, whether they were forwarded or printed, the type of device from which they were opened, and the location (e.g. city, state, and county) associated with the applicable IP address.

If The Customer visits The Provider’s website with an open ID (such as Facebook), The Customer may also be sharing and integrating data with third-party social media sites. The Provider may track aggregate data about the number of visits to this website with an open ID, the number of items on this website, or items on this website that The Customer chooses to share with a third-party social media site.

 

Other parties, such as advertising partners and analytics companies, may also be collecting information about The Customer’s online activity across various websites over time. The information collected by those third parties may include identifiers that allow those third parties to tailor the ads that they serve to The Customer.

 

Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based Do Not Track (DNT) signals other than cookies, The Provider does not currently respond to undefined ‘Do Not Track’ signals.

4.) Tools, Technologies, Plugins, and Integrations

  1. a. Website Plugins

The Provider’s website uses The Customer experience automation service ActiveCampaign via an API. The Provider is ActiveCampaign LLC, 1 North Dearborn Street, 5th floor, Chicago, IL 60602, USA. If The Customer provides any information, The Customer’s Contact Data is stored by ActiveCampaign and usually transmitted to a server in the USA, Australia, and Ireland, as well as countries where their service providers may be based. The Provider has no influence on this data transfer.

For further information, please refer to ActiveCampaign’s privacy policy: https://www.activecampaign.com/legal/privacy-policy. 

The Provider’s website uses the eCommerce toolkit service WooCommerce. The Provider is Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110 USA.  If The Customer makes a purchase, The Customer’s data is stored by Automattic and usually transmitted to a server in the USA and the EEA, as well as countries where their service providers may be based. The Provider has no influence on this data transfer.

For further information, please refer to Automattic’s privacy policy: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

The Provider’s website uses the payment processing service PayPal.  The Provider is PayPal Pte. Ltd. (‘3PL’), 5 Temasek Boulevard 09-01, Suntec Tower 5, Singapore 038985 (PayPal Europe S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal L-2449, Luxembourg). If The Customer makes a purchase, The Customer’s data is stored by PayPal and usually transmitted to a server in the USA and elsewhere in the world. The Provider has no influence on this data transfer.

For further information, please refer to Automattic’s privacy policy: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full#4. 

 

  1. b. Tracking and analysis tools

Profiling is the automated processing of personal data in order to analyze or predict certain personal aspects or behavior. This makes it possible, for example, to provide Customers with more individualized support and advice or to better tailor offers to individual customer needs.

 

The use of The Provider’s digital offerings is measured and evaluated by means of various technical systems, mainly from third-party providers such as Google Analytics. These measurements can be both anonymous and personal. The collected data may, in turn, be transferred by The Provider or the third-party providers of these technical systems to third parties in Germany and abroad for processing. The most frequently used and best-known analytics tool is Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc. This means that the data collected may be transmitted to a Google server in the United States (or to a location specified by Google).

 

The Provider’s website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. with a registered office at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S.A. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on The Customer’s computer and are used to analyze The Customer’s use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about the use of the website (including the IP address, which is, however, anonymized by Google before being stored so that it can no longer be assigned to The Customer) is transmitted to a Google server in the United States (or to a location determined by Google) and stored there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for The Provider, and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate the IP address of Customers with any other data held by Google.

 

The Provider’s website uses the ‘demographic characteristics’ function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain information about the age, gender, and interests of Customers. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. Customers can disable this function at any time via the ad settings in their Google account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting their data. Further information can be found in Google’s privacy policy at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

 

If Customers do not want their website activity to be made available to Google Analytics, they can install the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881?hl=en.

This prevents activity data from being shared with Google Analytics via JavaScript executed on websites (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js). The analysis of data by other tools of the website owner is not prevented when Customers use the add-on. Data may still be sent to the website or to other web analytics services.

 

Finally, The Provider collects certain information about its website in so-called server log files, which are automatically transmitted by The Customer’s Internet browser. This includes the user agent (browser type and version, operating system used), HTTP header information (referrer URL, IP address of the accessing computer), the time of the server request, and the login status. These server log files are only merged with other data sources for error analysis.

 

  1. c. Technologies for advertising purposes

The Provider’s website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google).

 

This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This enables interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to The Customer based on The Customer’s previous usage and browsing behavior on one end device (e.g., cell phone) to be displayed on another end device (e.g., tablet or PC).

 

If The Customer has given Google the corresponding consent, Google links The Customer’s web and app browsing history with The Customer’s Google account for this purpose. This enables the same personalized advertising messages to be displayed on every end device on which The Customer logs in with their Google account.

 

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects the Google-authenticated IDs of users, which are temporarily linked to The Provider’s Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising. Customers can permanently object to cross-device remarketing by disabling personalized advertising in their Google account: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

Further information can be found in Google’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

 

The Provider’s website also uses the online advertising program Google AdWords. The Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

In the context of Google AdWords, The Provider uses conversion tracking. When The Customer clicks on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on The Customer’s computer. These cookies expire after 30 days at the latest and are not used for identification. If The Customer visits our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and The Provider can recognize that The Customer clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

Google informs The Provider of the total number of users who clicked on its ad and were redirected to its website, which contains a conversion tracking tag. However, The Provider does not receive any information that can be used to identify The Customer personally.

Cookies help to make the visit to The Provider’s website easier, more pleasant, and more useful. Cookies are information files that the web browser automatically stores on the computer’s hard disk when The Customer visits The Provider’s website and uses the offers. Customers can choose to manage the security settings in their browser and thus block or disable cookies that have been installed, in which case, certain Provider services may no longer be able to be (fully) used. Customers can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting their browser software settings accordingly. However, The Provider would like to point out the fact that if the storage of cookies is disabled, certain features of this website may not be fully available. 

Customers can also prevent tracking by disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie via their Internet browser under User Settings. For further information, please refer to Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

If The Customer wishes to stop seeing ads from The Provider in Google Ads, The Customer can turn off the ad by taking

the following steps:

  • Go to the advertisement The Customer wants to be turned off.
  • Click on the x in the top left corner.
  • Click on Stop seeing this ad.

The Provider’s website additionally uses the visitor action pixel from Facebook. The Provider is Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

The Facebook pixel can be used to track the behavior of website visitors after they have been redirected to The Provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and allows future advertising measures to be optimized.

By submitting The Customer’s email address, The Customer also agrees to allow The Provider to use The Customer’s email address for custom audience targeting on sites like Facebook, where The Provider displays custom advertising to specific people who have opted-in to receive communications from The Provider. If The Customer wishes to stop seeing ads from The Provider on Facebook, The Customer can turn off the ad by taking the following steps:

  • From within Facebook, go to the advertisement The Customer wants to turn off.
  • Click on the drop-down arrow in the top corner of the ad (that may be in the top right
  • corner or top left corner).
  • Click on Hide ad.

The Customer can also customize the ads The Customer sees on Facebook across all advertisers by taking the

following steps:

  • Log in to Facebook and click settings.
  • Click on Ads.
  • On that page, The Customer will see a list of options to choose to limit and/or block the
  • information Facebook shows to advertisers.

The collected data is anonymous for The Provider. The Provider cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of The Customers. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and so that Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. This allows Facebook to place advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. The Provider cannot influence this use of the data.

Customers can permanently object to remarketing by disabling the Custom Audiences remarketing function in the Ad Settings area under the following link. To do this, Customers must be logged in to Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. 

Customers who do not have a Facebook account may opt out of Facebook usage-based advertising on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website at the following link: https://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.

For further information, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Other ad platforms The Provider may use in the future have similar ways The Customer can turn off any ad to stop seeing it.

4. d. Communication by email and/or newsletter

If The Customer wishes to receive an email offered on The Provider’s website, The Provider requires an email address and other information that allows verification that the email address provided is correct and that The Customer agrees to receive the email (the double-opt-in procedure).

Emails provides regular recommendations and offers that may be of interest to The Customer. For this purpose, The Provider collects and processes personal data regarding The Customer’s usage behavior on the website and in relation to the use of the email (e.g., whether The Customer opens the email or on which web URL links The Customer clicks). The Provider evaluates this data for statistical purposes in order to better tailor the content of the email to the interests of its Customers.

The processing of the personal data entered in the email registration form is based on The Customer’s consent, which The Customer can revoke at any time with effect for the future. The Customer may withdraw this consent at any time via the unsubscribe link in the email. The personal data collected is used for the design of the content and for sending the email. The Provider stores the personal data provided by The Customer for the purpose of receiving the email until The Customer unsubscribes from the email.

  1. e. Integration of third-party offers / Social media

The Provider’s digital offerings are networked with third-party functions and systems in a variety of ways, for example, by integrating plug-ins from third-party social networks such as Facebook, YouTube, etc. If The Customer has a user account with these third parties, they may also be able to measure and evaluate the use of The Provider’s digital offerings. In the process, additional personal data, such as IP address, browser settings, and other parameters, may be transmitted to these third parties and stored there. The Provider has no control over the use of such personal data collected by third parties and assumes no responsibility or liability. Moreover, The Provider has no detailed knowledge of what data is transmitted to the third parties, where it is transmitted to, and whether it is anonymized.

5.) Third-Party Actions

Customers have the option to share their data with third parties, e.g., a personal trustee, directly or as part of The Provider’s trustee partner program. By granting access rights, The Customer agrees that The Provider may provide third parties (e.g., the trustee) with all of The Customer’s data or allow access to it. The Customer retains full control over the third party’s access rights to the data at all times and can restrict or deny access at any time.

When The Customer uses any other optionally available partner functions of The Provider or when The Customer connects their own account to a partner, data will be exchanged between The Provider and the partner.

The Provider does not control and is not liable for the actions of any third parties who promoted and/or linked from this website. The Provider recommends quality companies but has no control over the actions of those third parties, the content they provide, or their privacy practices. While The Provider is not liable for any of the actions of those third parties, The Customer is free to give feedback on experiences with any third parties.

The Provider’s website contains hyperlinks to third-party websites that are not operated or controlled by The Provider. The Provider is not responsible for the content or data protection practices of these third-party websites.

6.) IP Addresses and Cookies

We may use The Customer’s IP address to help prevent fraud, to help diagnose problems with our server, to gather broad demographic information, and to offer you products and services.

7.) Data Security Policy

All collected information is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. Furthermore, access to this information is strictly limited, and the information is not accessible to the public. Employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, The Provider uses appropriate industry-standard procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of The Customer’s personal information, such as firewall, encryption, token authentication, application proxies, monitoring technology, and adaptive analysis of network traffic to track abuse of the network and its data. In addition, The Provider has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control.

The Provider uses technical and organizational security measures in accordance with recognized market standards to protect stored personal data from accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized tampering, deletion, alteration, access, disclosure, or use, and against partial or complete loss. Data is processed via servers in countries with an appropriate level of data protection, whereby the requirements according to the FADP or the GDPR are fully complied with at all times. The requirements according to the FADP and the GDPR are fully complied with at all times. Security measures are continuously adapted and improved according to technological developments. The Provider assumes no liability for the loss of data or access to and use of the data by third parties. Furthermore, The Provider cannot guarantee the security of data transmission on the Internet. In particular, there is a risk of access by third parties when data is transmitted by email (e.g., someone looking at a person’s unlocked computer or device).

Please be advised that although The Provider takes every reasonable technological precaution available to protect Customers’ data, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. It’s The Customer’s responsibility to make sure that all necessary precautions have been taken to protect personal information while online.

8.) Children’s Privacy

The Provider takes Children’s Privacy very seriously. Due to the age restrictions of this website, none of the information obtained by this website falls within the Child Online Privacy Act (COPPA). The Provider does not knowingly intend to collect personally identifiable information from children under 18 years of age. If a minor child has given personally identifiable information to The Provider, The Customer may reach out through the email or mailing address listed in the section entitled Contacting Us to have this information deleted from The Provider’s records. The Provider will then make reasonable efforts to remove any child’s information from the database that stores the information.

9.) Updating, Removing, Or Exporting Personal Information

If The Customer has any questions or requests about the use, amendment, or deletion of personal information provided, or if The Customer would like to opt out of future communications from us, they should contact The Provider using the information below in the Contacting section.

If The Customer wishes to request that The Provider fully deletes their information from The Provider’s database, they have to send an email to comments @ GinaReneeDesigns. com (removing the spaces from the email address) with the subject line ‘Forget Me’ and explain in the body of the email that they are asking to have their personal data deleted. To protect user privacy, The Customer must send such a request from the account information The Provider has on file, or the request will not be honored. The Provider reserves the right to retain any data required to maintain under applicable laws.

Once The Customer’s data is deleted, The Provider cannot undelete, retrieve, or restore it.

The Customer may also have other rights under applicable federal, state, or local laws.

10.) Withdrawing Consent

The Customer can, of course, withdraw this consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the withdrawal.
