Data-Protection Statement and Consent to Use of Data
Data protection is a matter of trust and your trust is important to us. So that you can feel secure when visiting our websites, we strictly observe the statutory regulations in processing your person-specific data and we would like to inform you here about our data acquisition and data utilization. The following data-protection statement explains to you which data is collected from you on our websites, which parts of this data we process and use and in which way, and to whom you can turn with any concerns or requests.
1. Body Responsible, and Rights of Those Affected
The body responsible for the acquisition, processing and utilization of your person-specific data is Pogo’s Empire e.U., Postfach 11, A-2020 Hollabrunn. As the body responsible, Pogo’s Empire can be reached by you via the following contact options:
Pogo’s Empire e.U.
You can request, at any time and free of charge, information about your data stored by us, and can exercise your right to correction, blockage or deletion of your data. To this end you can make use of the previously mentioned contact options.
2. Acquisition of Person-Specific Data
Person-specific data describes details relating to the actual or personal relationships of a specific or identifiable natural person. Such details include, for example, your name, your telephone number, your address, and all existing data that you disclose to us during contacting us via our contact form, order processing or when opening your customer account.
For each customer who registers with us via the “register” function, we set up a customer account, i.e. password-protected, direct access to his or her existing data stored by us. This allows you, amongst other things, to view your already-concluded, still open and recently sent orders, or to manage your personal data and the newsletter.
The following data must be given during the registration for a customer account (obligatory disclosures):
– your e-mail address
– your password
– your forename
– your surname
Your invoice and delivery address need not be given until you order something. For your order we need your correct name, address and payment data. We need your e-mail address so that we can confirm receipt of your order and its dispatch, and so that we can communicate with you in general. We also use your e-mail address to identify you (as a log-in name), when you visit your customer account. If you do not log out of your customer account, you will automatically remain logged in. For security reasons, however, you are asked to give your password again if, for example, your personal data is to be altered or if you would like to place an order.
If you contact us by the form on the website or by e-mail, your data will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share your data without your consent.
3. Acquisition, Processing and Utilization of Your Person-Specific Data
We collect, store and process your data for the entire processing of your purchase, including any subsequent guarantee claims, for our services, the technical administration and our own marketing purposes. Your person-specific data is only passed on to third parties to the extent that this is legally permissible, including the purpose of processing the contract or for invoicing, for marketing or if you have previously consented to this. When processing orders, for example, the service companies used by us (transport companies, logistics companies, banks) are sent the data they require for processing and concluding orders. The data passed on to our service providers in this context may only be used by them for fulfilling their duties.
Use of Your Data for Advertising Purposes
Apart from the processing of your data for settlement of your purchase, we also use your data for the following purposes: to permanently improve your purchase experience and for making this more customer-friendly and individual for you; to communicate with you about your orders, and about certain products or marketing campaigns; and to recommend products or services that might interest you.

Our websites make use of so-called re-targeting technologies. We use these technologies to make the Internet offer more interesting for you. This technique allows Internet users who have already shown an interest in our shop and our products to also be provided with suitable advertising on the websites of our partners.
