Any publication in such a situation will be in accordance with the Personal Data Act applicable at any given time. We do not record any personally sensitive information.

6.4. Group Buy ApS operates the three sites Pluus, Sayve and Buuks. For the sake of the best possible user experience, email addresses are exchanged between the three sites, so that it is possible to make purchases at all three webshops with the same membership, for example.

7. Sharing of information with recipients outside the EU/EEA

7.1 As data controller, we only share personal information with recipients outside the EU/EEA if they comply with the same European legislation as we do.

7.2 Through our data processor agreements, we have ensured that these parties do not misuse your data.

8. Protection of personal data

8.1. According to the Personal Data Act, your personal data must be stored securely and confidentially. We store your personal information on computers with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. Our security measures are constantly monitored to determine whether our user information is handled properly while still respecting your rights as a user. However, we cannot guarantee 100 percent security for data transfers via the Internet. This means that there may be a (limited) risk that others will unjustifiably force access to information when data is sent and stored electronically. You thus provide your personal data at your own risk.

8.2 Personal data registered with Buuks.co.uk ApS in connection with a purchase is stored for 5 years, calculated from the end of the relevant financial year in which the transaction is completed, after which the information is deleted. The information is stored in accordance with section 10 of the Accounting Act.

8.3. Personal data that is not registered with Buuks.co.uk ApS in connection with a purchase is deleted or anonymised on an ongoing basis as the purpose for which it was collected is terminated. Personal information is stored for a maximum of 12 months after the purpose has been completed.

8.4. The rapid development of the Internet means that changes to our processing of personal data may become necessary. We therefore reserve the right to update and change these guidelines for the processing of personal data. If we do so, we of course correct the date under point 10. "last updated" at the bottom of the page. In the event of significant changes, we will notify you in the form of a visible notification on our website.

8.5. To the extent that personal data about you is processed, you have the right under the Personal Data Act to be informed which personal data can be attributed to you. If it turns out that the information or data processed about you is incorrect or misleading, you have the right to demand that it be corrected, deleted or blocked. You can at any time object to information about you being processed. You can also withdraw your consent at any time. You also have the opportunity to complain about the processing of information and data concerning you. Complaints are submitted to the Danish Data Protection Agency, cf. section 58 (1) of the Personal Data Act. 1.

9. Discrepancies

9.1. As a registered subject with Buuks.co.uk ApS, you always have the right to object to registrations. You also have the right to be informed of what information is registered on you. If your data is incorrect or misleading, you have the right to have it corrected, deleted or blocked. These rights are yours under the Personal Data Act. If you have questions about this, please contact Buuks.co.uk ApS. via e-mail dpo@buuks.co.uk.

9.2. If you want to complain about your purchase, please contact customer service at info@buuks.co.uk. If a solution cannot be reached, you can submit a complaint to relevant boards in the area: The Danish Competition and Consumer Authority, Carl Jacobsens Vej 35, 2500 Valby, if the conditions for this are met. You have the opportunity to complain about the processing of information and data concerning you. The complaint is submitted to the Danish Data Protection Agency, cf. section 58, subsection 1.

9.3. Any dispute between the company and the customer is settled in accordance with Danish law.

9.4. As per 15 February 2016, European companies and consumers will have a new digital platform: ODR. ODR aims to make consumer complaints about goods and services in the EU easier to deal with. ODR stands for Online Dispute Resolution. For consumers, this means that they can complain directly to the European company they shopped with. The purpose of the ODR platform is to bind many appeal bodies together. Consumers and businesses can be in direct contact with each other. For example, a Danish consumer can write their complaint in Danish directly to, for example, an Italian company that has been traded with. The complaint is translated by the EU's own translation software into Italian, and the company thus receives the complaint in their mother tongue.

9.5. If something is wrong with your order or does not meet your expectations, please contact us so we can find a satisfactory solution together. By law, we must refer you to the following link - if you do not wish to talk to us first: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
