3.1 Purpose of data collection

Through the Webapp, StoryDots collects and processes personal data required solely for the following purposes: making a personal video message available to the person you’re offering a gift to, or who offered you a gift.

When collecting data of a personal nature, the information required for the above purposes and which is needed to respond to your requests is indicated with an asterisk (mainly an email address). If you have not completed the compulsory fields, we will not be able to respond to your requests.

3.2 Data retention

The data are kept for a period that does not exceed the length of the time required for the achievement of the goal pursued. We retain your personal data for the minimum duration provided by the law where it is specified. When our legitimate interest requires a different duration of retention of your data, we will consider the sensitivity of the data, the potential risk and security requirements to settle the duration of retention.

When the retention of your data is no longer necessary with regards to the purpose pursued, StoryDots will delete your data.

3.3 Recipient of data

All the personal data collected on our WebApp is intended for StoryDots. However, StoryDots may from time to time be required to disclose your information to other entities for the exclusive purpose of customer relation.

When processing orders, the data must be transferred to other companies on behalf of StoryDots. In such an extent, to reduce the data risk of loss or damage, StoryDots undertakes to minimize the information disclosed to third parties to what is absolutely necessary to achieve the goal pursued.

Whatever the circumstances, StoryDots will only transfer your data to other companies in the following specific cases:

StoryDots is required to transfer your personal data to a third party in relation to requests you have made (payment provider, logistic providers, marketing and advertising service providers for the optimization of your purchasing experience);

StoryDots has received your express consent to transfer your data to a third party;

StoryDots is summoned by a judicial authority to transfer said data to an administrative or judicial authority.

In this context, StoryDots requires their service providers (Amazon Web Services) to grant the security of your personal data and comply with the regulation. The service providers of StoryDots are not entitled to use your personal data to pursue other purposes than those specified by StoryDots in accordance with its instructions.

Within the framework of an order made directly with a Retailer that sells its products directly on their ecommerce Website (order sold and sent by the Retailer), the personal data collected will be transferred to this Retailer in order to fulfill its obligations. In this extent, the processing of personal data will be subject to the Retailer’s confidentiality policy.

Likewise, you may subscribe to the Retailer’s newsletter. The processing of personal data relating to the Retailer’s newsletters will be subject to the Retailer’s confidentiality policy.

3.4 Data security and confidentiality

StoryDots has done everything necessary to take all and any useful precautions to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal data processed, to prevent such data from being deformed, damaged or destroyed and to prevent any unauthorised third parties from having access to your data. All the security features used are state-of-the-art, particularly with respect to information systems.

Insofar as StoryDots cannot control all and any risks associated with Internet operations, the attention of Internet users is drawn to the potential risks inherent to the use of the Internet and to operate on the Internet.
