Cushi Tush Online Data Protection Rules

Cushi Tush is delighted that you have visited our website and thanks you for your interest in our company. At Cushi Tush, data protection has the highest priority. This document is designed to provide you with information on how we are following the rules for data protection at Cushi Tush, which information we gather while you are browsing our website and how this information is used. First and foremost: your personal data is only used in the following cases and will not be used in other cases without your explicit approval.

Collecting data

When you visit the Cushi Tush website, general information is collected automatically (in other words, not by means of registration) which is not stored as personal related data. The web servers that are used store the following data by default:

  • The name of your internet service provider
  • The website from which you visited us
  • The websites which you visit when you are with us
  • Your IP address

This information is analyzed in anonymized form. It is used solely for the purpose of improving the attractiveness, content and functionality of our website. Where data is passed on to external service providers, we have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed.

Collecting and processing personal data

Beyond this use, personal data is only collected when you provide us with this in the course of, say, registration, by filling out forms or sending emails, and in the course of ordering products or services, inquiries or requests for material.

Your personal data remains with our company and our provider and will not be made available to third parties in any form by us or by persons instructed by us.

Data retention

We store personal data for as long as it is necessary to perform a service that you have requested or for which you have granted your permission, providing that no legal requirements exist to the contrary such as in the case of retention periods required by trade or tax regulations.

Security

Cushi Tush deploys technical and organizational security measures to protect the information you have made available from being manipulated unintentionally or intentionally, lost, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized persons. Where personal data is being collected and processed the information will be transferred in encrypted form in order to prevent misuse of the data by a third party. Our security measures are continuously reviewed and revised in line with the latest technology.

Right to obtain and correct information

You have the right to check all data relating to your person stored with us and inform us, if it is in your opinion out-of-date or incorrect. To inform us, just send an email.

Our use of cookies

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the Internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally. These pieces of information are used to improve services for you.

YouTube cookies

We embed videos from our official YouTube channel using YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode. This mode may set cookies on your computer once you click on the YouTube video player, but YouTube will not store personally-identifiable cookie information for playbacks of embedded videos using the privacy-enhanced mode. To find out more please visit YouTube’s embedding videos information page.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service which helps us to count the number of people that visit our web site and analyse how they use it. Cookies enable the function of Google Analytics. This software helps us take and analyse visitor information such as browser usage, new visitor numbers, response to marketing activity and shopping times. That information helps us to improve the website and your shopping experience. It also helps us to determine which of our website pages are most popular and which products have received the most visits, for example.

The data stored by these cookies can only be seen by Cushi Tush and Google and never shows any confidential information.
