MORE INFORMATION FOR INDIVIDUALS FROM THE EEA AND SWITZERLAND

a. Your data controller entity

The data controller for your information is StyleHaul, Inc.

b. Transfers of personal information outside the EEA

We operate globally, so we do need to transfer your personal information internationally. In particular, your personal information will be transferred to and processed in the United States where many of our central databases operate and may also be transferred to Singapore and Indonesia, where we have offices. Where information is transferred from StyleHaul Europe to StyleHaul Inc in the United States, StyleHaul has an intra-company agreement incorporating the EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses.

Where information is transferred outside the EEA, and where this is to a stakeholder or vendor in a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, data is adequately protected by EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses, an appropriate Privacy Shield certification or a vendor’s Processor Binding Corporate Rules.  A copy of the relevant mechanism can be provided for your review on request to privacy@stylehaul.com.

c. Legitimate Interests

We carry out balancing tests for all the data processing we carry out on the basis of our legitimate interests, which we have described above. You can obtain information on any of our balancing tests by contacting us using the details below.

d. How long will you retain my personal information?

Where we process registration information, we do this for as long as you are an active user of the StyleHaul Features.

Where we process personal information for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the information until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your information indefinitely so that we can respect your request in future.

Where we process personal information for Site security purposes, we retain it for only as long as necessary.

Where we process personal information in connection with performing a contract, we keep the personal information in line with the contractual limitation period and applicable laws on contract and payment information retention.

e. Children

Where we offer online services to children over 13 in Europe or the United States we obtain parental consent where required by applicable law. Therefore if you are a parent we may ask you for certain information to verify parental consent.

f. Your rights

You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal information; to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal information; and to obtain the personal information you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine readable format, and to ask us to share (port) this information to another controller.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal information in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the information to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the personal information for direct marketing).

If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to an EU data protection authority where you live, work or where you believe a breach may have occurred.

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal information about another person, where they would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping. We will inform you of relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make.

Withdrawing consent or otherwise objecting to direct marketing

Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your personal information for other purposes, such as those set out above.  You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or by contacting us using the details set out below.

g. How do I get in touch with StyleHaul?
