Our Site uses re-targeting technologies. This enables us to advertise directly to our users, who were already interested in our shop and our products, from our partners’ websites. We believe that the display of a personalised, interest-based advertising is more interesting for our customers than advertising that does not have any personal connection. We also work with other companies who use tracking technologies to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your visits to our Site and your interaction with our communications, including advertising. Re-targeting technologies analyse your cookies and display advertisement based on your past surfing behaviour.

The processing will take place as necessary for the execution of the contract between you and us, or for the execution of pre-contractual measures adopted at your request.

Your personal data will be collected, stored and processed, (subject to the above) by Pandora A/S , a public company listed on the Nasdaq Copenhagen stock exchange with registered office at Havneholmen 17-19 Copenhagen V, 1561 Denmark .
We take the appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised use, disclosure or access, in particular where processing involves the transmission of data over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing and misuse.
Disclosure of personal data
Treating your data with the utmost care and confidentiality is one of our core values. If required by law, your data may be disclosed to third parties. In addition, we employ service providers and data processors to process data on our behalf. These services include authentication, maintenance services, analysis services, e-mail messaging services, gift services, delivery services, handling of payment transactions, solvency, address and e-mail checks. These third parties are our data processors, payment service providers used to facilitate payment for your purchases, and couriers responsible for carrying out delivery to you, and they may only process personal data to the extent necessary in order to deliver their services.
