Who we are?
The website is owned and operated by the business in operation on this domain. This includes access to any data regarding accounts, order history and info, contact form submissions, and subscriptions to third party newsletters if applicable. The website was created and otherwise maintained by Vogel Manufacturing, who also has login credentials into this information.
What information do we collect?
This website will collect a user name, email address, password, and your full name on all account creation and product order submissions. On eCommerce transactions, your shipping/billing address as well as your phone number is also collected. Credit card information is handled through the website’s payment processor and no credit card information is kept on the website’s database. All eCommerce transactions are sent securely through HTTPS/SSL.
How do we use personal information?
Account information is collected in order to personalize the content and user experience while you visit our site. Creating an account is optional unless checking out via eCommerce. In these cases, an account will be created automatically on checkout in order to properly deliver your goods and prevent malicious website spam. Once the account is created, you are able to log in using the credentials you entered, view past order history, and delete your account if you choose. Cookies are used to handle the website’s shopping cart by assigning a random id to the user and storing shopping cart data in the database so that the cart is retained if the user returns. The site also uses Google Analytics to store location data, demographics, and page visits if the user has allowed it in their browser settings. This data is used to track the amount of visitors the website is getting, how well any marketing strategies are working, and for general internal research and development including SEO, demographics, and page relevance. This data is anonymous and cannot be traced to a specific person. None of this data is sold or sent to third parties.
What legal basis do we have for processing your personal data?
While all eCommerce data is given on consent, it should be noted that the processing of this data is not possible without the storage of the consented data. It is in our legitimate interest to collect your account data in order to process orders, handle spam on our website, obtain analytical feedback from Google Analytics, and handle contact form submissions. All data collected pertaining to the user on our website can be deleted at the user’s request. Please contact the business operating on this domain or Vogel Manufacturing if you have a request to completely erase your data collected on the site and we will ensure that data is removed. This process is irreversible and cannot be undone.
When do we share personal data?
Data is never shared to third parties without the user’s consent. By subscribing to our mailing list or processing eCommerce order information you are consenting to the use of your data to be used for it’s intended use only and to be protected by the privacy policies in place by those organizations.
How do we secure personal data?
Data is secured by restricting access to personal data using hashed password protection and is standard procedure for content management systems. Your password is stored in the database as a series of characters using a non-identifiable key. To check if the entered password matches the stored password, the system will hash the entered password with the same key and see if the series of number and characters match the stored password. To further aid in data security, we only store enough information to properly function the website and the business operating it.
How long do we keep your personal data for?
All information recorded on the website is stored indefinitely in the database unless the user explicitly wishes to delete it. This is so that the account information is still on the site if the user wishes to log back in, or to access their cart or transactions later.
Your rights in relation to personal data
Under the GDPR, we respect the right of users to access and control your own personal data. Please contact either the business operating on this domain or Vogel Manufacturing if you would like any modifications, exports, or deletions done to your data. This is to ensure that the data is retrieved and accessed in whole, as some data may be stored in website backups or on consented third parties that the user may or may not be able to access on their own.
