Personal Data
To complete and execute your order, and for the purpose of sending e-mails in certain situations (such as notifications regarding order status), we process personal information you provide (title, first- and surname, address, e-mail address and phone number, payment details) in accordance with the conditions of the German data protection laws. We save the contract text and send you an e-mail containing the details of your order. You can view our T&C (General Terms & Conditions) here at any time, and can review your previous orders in your WhiteWall account if you registered when ordering. Your personal information, which after registering, you can enter, adjust, and delete in your password-protected area My WhiteWall, will be used exclusively for the implementation of the contract. Some of your information (title, first name and surname, address, telephone number) is made available to our logistics provider during the delivery of your order. The same applies to personal information transferred to us during communication (electronic or in print form).

Newsletter Data

To send our newsletter, we need an e-mail address from you. It is necessary to verify the given e-mail address and to accept the newsletter. Supplementary data is not collected or is voluntary. The use of the data takes place exclusively for sending of the newsletter.

The data provided in the newsletter registration is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. GDPR). Revocation of the consent you have already given is possible at any time. An informal message by e-mail will suffice for the revocation, or you can use the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data entered to set up the subscription will be deleted in the event of cancellation. If this data has been transmitted to us for other purposes and elsewhere, it will remain with us.

Product Recommendations via email

To make existing customers aware of products from their area of interest, we inform them of these products by email. Existing customers will also receive these individual product recommendations if they are subscribed to our newsletter. We make the selection of individual product recommendations based on data and information: a) you have entered while shopping, and b) that are legally allowed to be used.

If you are no longer interested in our individual product recommendations, you can deactivate this service here at any time. Contact our customer service team: 646-513-4422.

Payment Details
In addition, in order to ensure maximum data protection, all payment details (e.g. account and credit card details) will automatically be deleted from our systems after the order and the payment have been processed and such information will have to be re-entered in the event of future transactions.

Images
WhiteWall will not use your image data in any way without your explicit consent. Image data you upload for personal use only, will not be used by WhiteWall for advertising or other purposes under any circumstances.

Facebook
Our website uses Social Plugins (“Plugins”) from the social network, facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto; CA 94304, USA. The Plugins are recognizable through one of the Facebook logos (e.g., the white F on a blue tile or the “thumbs-up” symbol), or are labeled with the phrase: “Facebook Social Plugin.” The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed at: https://developers.facebook.com/plugins. When you visit one of our webpages that contains such a Plugin, your browser makes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. Facebook will transmit the contents of the Plugin directly to your browser and embed it in the website. Therefore, we have no influence over the range of data that Facebook collects through these Plugins and can, therefore, only inform you to the best of our knowledge: through the embedded Plugins, Facebook receives data pertaining to the correlating information you call up on our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can associate this information with your Facebook account. When you interact with the Plugins (for example, by clicking the like button or leaving a comment), the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook, where it is saved. Even if you do not have a Facebook account, it might still be possible for Facebook to determine and save your IP address. For more information regarding the purpose and scope of the data collection, the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, your rights (and settings options) pertaining to the protection of your privacy, please consult Facebook’s privacy policy at: https//www.facebook.com/policy.php. If you have a Facebook account, but would not like Facebook to collect data about you through our website and connect it to the stored data for your profile, then you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. It is also possible to block Facebook Social Plugins with browser add-ons, such as the “Facebook Blocker.”
