Because vendors sell products in our marketplace, we (GAPVIET CORP) have to request certain information about them. For example, the company name and description of a vendor are shown to customers and serve to distinguish vendors from each other; the address is used for shipping rate calculation.
However, we also request some personal data, such as first name/last name and emails address. Those are necessary for creating a vendor’s administrator account in our system. Vendors work with the marketplace through such accounts. Email addresses are necessary because they distinguish administrators from each other. You sign in to the store by entering the email address you provide here. Names are necessary because a single vendor can have multiple administrators—it is easier to handle accountability that way.
We also send account-related emails (such as order status notifications, password reset emails, and more) to the provided email address. For that reason we need to store your email address while you remain our customer. If you decide that you no longer want to work with our marketplace and would like to have personal data removed from our database (or if you’d like to get all the personal data associated with your account that we have), please send an email to [email protected].
If you believe that your personal data has been misused, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. We’re obliged by EU General Data Protection Regulation to let you know about this right; we don’t actually intend to misuse your data.
When you sign up for a specific newsletter, we (GAPVIET CORP) add your email address to a corresponding mailing list. While it is there, we know that we can contact you by email regarding that topic.
You can always have your email address removed from our mailing lists. There are multiple ways to do it:
We may use a third-party email service (MailChimp and/or Mad Mimi) to send newsletters. Some members of our staff can view mailing lists with email addresses. That way they’ll be able to remove your email address from the mailing list, should you request us to do so.
Please note that mailing lists are independent from each other. If you decide not to receive newsletters at all, you’ll have to unsubscribe from all the mailing lists. Even if you do that, you’ll still receive account-related emails (such as order status notifications, password reset emails, and more). It is essential for operating an online store.
If you decide that you no longer want to use our store and would like to have your personal data removed from our database (or if you’d like to get all the personal data associated with your account that we have), please send an email to [email protected].
