What personal data does Vaaka collect and why?
When you create an account
We collect the usual personal data that you enter which includes your name, email address and password and may include your bank account number. This is so you can create and sign in to your account and make purchases.
We collect the data shown in the comments form, the IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. After approval of your comment, your profile picture may be visible to the public.
When you fill in a contact form you provide your name and email address so we can help you out.
If you join our email subscription list you provide your details and may occasionally receive notifications, helpful information or updates.
If you choose to receive emails from us, we may use certain analytics tools to capture data (such as whether you open our email or not). This data helps us to gauge whether our communication and marketing is effective.
You will have the opportunity to unsubscribe from receiving these emails, except in cases when we are required to contact you by law (e.g. notifying you of a data breach).
When you buy products
When you buy Vaaka products we ask for information such as your name, address and phone number so we can get your order processed and shipped to you.
