Under GDPR, the processing of your payment information is based on the necessity for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, i.e., the purchase of products.

Under GDPR, you have the right to be informed of any legal requests for your personal data, subject to any overriding legal obligations that may prevent us from notifying you.

Security

In compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us. We employ a variety of security measures designed to safeguard your data against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. These measures include, but are not limited to, encryption, access controls, secure protocols, and regular security assessments.

While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, it is important to note that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is entirely secure. As such, while we aim to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We also regularly review and update our security practices to ensure that your personal data is handled in accordance with the latest security standards and GDPR requirements. In the unlikely event of a data breach, we will take appropriate steps to mitigate any harm and will notify you and any relevant authorities as required by law.

We encourage you to protect your personal data when using the Internet and to be aware of the security risks when providing information online.

Regarding Children

In compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), our Site is not intended for, nor do we knowingly collect personal information from, children under the age of 16. The GDPR places specific restrictions on how personal data about children is processed, recognizing the unique need to protect minors.

If we discover that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under 16 without the requisite parental consent, we will take immediate steps to delete that information. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us at shop@kattyros.com.

Parents or legal guardians who become aware that their child has provided us with personal information without their consent should contact us. We will remove such information and terminate the child’s account if applicable.
