In addition, we may collect data with regards to competitions etc, to help us decide on winners. This data is called identifying information. This may include personal data like name, age, nationality, city of residence, email addresses and social media profiles. In a few cases which requires information to ship products, merchandise or create agreements between customers, the customer’s addresses’ is also collected.
Device information and identifying information is in this policy called personal information.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
Cosgear processes email addresses and the accompanying name for the purpose of sending marketing to the customer as well as finding potential new customers based on similarities between the customer and the potential customer, using social media tools such as lookalike audience and similar. The legal basis for the processing is consent from the registered persons (Personal Data Act § 8(1)), which is voluntary to submit. The data is provided to Cosgear by the customer.
Competitions and Development
We use the identifying information to gain an understanding of why our customer’s are interested in our product, and to use feedback and tips to increase how well our products and services serve our customers. In addition, the data offered by customer’s is used to decide competition winners. This information is stored until it is not in use anymore. When Cosgear no longer has a legal basis for storing and processing the data, all identifying factors about the information is deleted. For example, name, age, email addresses and residence will be deleted, but Cosgear will keep storing answers to questions asked as part of a competition. We will not be able to identify each individual’s answers, but may use them to improve our products and services in a long term manner.
