Important information regarding new GDPR regulations for EU Customers effective from May 25th, 2018
Under the GDPR, every data processing activity, performed as a controller (seller) or processor (credit card processing), needs to rely on a legal basis. The GDPR recognizes a total of six legal bases for processing EU individuals’ personal data (in the GDPR, EU individuals are referred to as “data subjects”). Authentic Expressions conducts business on any one of these six legal bases, according to Art. 6 (1) (a) to (f) GDPR, which are:
The data subject (customer) has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes;
The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;
The processing is necessary for the compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
The processing is necessary to protect a vital interest of the data subject;
The data processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority; or
The processing is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by the entity, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require personal data protection.
By making a purchase through this website (Go-authentic.com), you (the customer) consents and agrees to sharing your personal data (including First & Last Name; email address; telephone number; credit card number; cc expiration date; cc security code; and product purchased; ip address) with the "data controller" (Authentic Expressions) as well as with the "data processor" (Paypal, Stripe) for the necessary performance of the sales contract or purchase transaction.
You also consent and agree to the storing of above mentioned "personal data" in our customer records to be used for the purpose of 'proof of purchase', 'warranties', 'credits', 'future purchases', 'reward points' and 'account registration'.
