INFORMATION GATHERED BY GadgetOMG.com (together with its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors — collectively, “GadgetOMG.com” “we,” or “us”) . This is GadgetOMG.com’s online privacy policy (“Policy”). This policy applies only to activities GadgetOMG.com engages in on its website and does not apply to GadgetOMG.com activities that are "offline" or unrelated to the website.

GadgetOMG.com collects certain anonymous data regarding the usage of the website. This information does not personally identify users, by itself or in combination with other information, and is gathered to improve the performance of the website. The anonymous data collected by the GadgetOMG.com website can include information such as the type of browser you are using, and the length of the visit to the website. You may also be asked to provide personally identifiable information on the GadgetOMG.com website, which may include your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. This information can be gathered when providing feedback or e-mails are sent to GadgetOMG.com, when you register for services, or make purchases via the website.

We don’t post anything to your Facebook, or other third-party social media accounts without your permission.

You may decline to provide us with your information. However, this will limit your ability to make a purchase in our store, sign up for our newsletter or generally use our Services.

 

3. USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

Except as otherwise stated below, we do not sell, trade or rent to others your personally identifiable information collected on the site.

The information collected by our site is used for the following purposes: to enable us to provide you with our Services and to improve and promote our Services, to contact you and/or customise your experience on our store (for example, to show you products that we think may interest you based on previous purchase history), to process orders, to keep you informed about your order status, to notify you of products or special offers that may be of interest to you, and for statistical purposes for improving our site (to track and analyse use of the Services so that we can improve how GadgetOMG.com is performing and provide users with the best experience possible).

We will disclose your Delivery Information to third parties for order tracking purposes or process your check or money order (as applicable), fulfill your order, improve the functionality of our site, perform statistical and data analyses, deliver your order and deliver our promotional emails to you. For example, we must release your mailing address information to the delivery service to deliver products that you ordered.

All credit/debit cards’ details and personally identifiable information will not be stored, sold, shared, rented or leased to any third parties.

How This Information Is Shared

The following data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users:

  • Any payment information you provide when making a purchase in our store
  • Your password details when creating an account or signing up to our newsletter
  • Your IP address
  • Your phone number
  • Your date of birth and other personal details you may provide us with
  • Information that’s shared with trusted third-party services

We may share your information with certain trusted third-party services to help us provide, improve, promote, or protect our Services (like when we partner with payment processors, or use services that help us manage our ads on social media platforms or other sites).

When we share data with third-party services that support the delivery of our Services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorised, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do.

Information that may be made public

We reserve the right to make public types of content as indicated below:

  • comments and requests you submit through our store
  • answers to support requests you may submit through our store
  • information that’s shared to protect GadgetOMG.com and comply with the law

We do reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect GadgetOMG.com’s legal rights, property, or the safety of GadgetOMG.com, its employees, users, or others.

Data Protection Authority

Subject to applicable law, if you are a citizen or resident of the European Economic Area, you also have the right to (i) object to GadgetOMG.com’s use of your personal information and (ii) lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority.

 

4. EUROPEAN UNION USERS

Data protection law in Europe requires a “lawful basis” for collecting and retaining personal information from citizens or residents of the European Economic Area. Our lawful bases include:

Performing the commitment we have with you.

In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our obligation to deliver the products and services you purchase(d) through our store.

Legal compliance: Sometimes the law says we need to collect and use your data. For example, tax laws require us to retain records of payments made through our store.

Legitimate interests: This is a technical term in data protection law which essentially means we have a good and fair reason to use your data and we do so in ways which do not hurt your interests and rights. We sometimes require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way that might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and that does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.

For example, we use identity, device, and location information to prevent fraud and abuse and to keep the Services secure. We may also send you promotional communications about our Products and Services, subject to your right to control whether we do so.

We analyse how users interact with our Site so we can understand better what elements of the design are working well and which are not working so well.

This allows us to improve and develop the quality of the online experience we offer all our users.

 

5. RETENTION AND DATA TRANSFERS

Retention

We will retain your information as long as necessary to provide you with the Products or Services or as otherwise set forth in this Policy. We will also retain and use this information as necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect GadgetOMG.com’s legal rights.

We also collect and maintain aggregated, anonymised or pseudonymised information which we may retain indefinitely to protect the safety and security of our Site, improve our Services or comply with legal obligations.

Data Transfers

Because GadgetOMG.com is a Hong Kong based company, your information will be collected and processed in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has its own laws governing data protection and government access to information. The rules that protect your personal information under Hong Kong law may be different than in your home country. If you choose to use our Site and Services, you need to agree to our Terms of Use, which set out the full agreement between GadgetOMG.com and its users.

 

6. COOKIES

Cookies are small bits of data cached in a user’s browser. GadgetOMG.com utilizes cookies to determine whether or not you have visited the home page in the past. However, no other user information is gathered.

GadgetOMG.com may use non-personal "aggregated data" to enhance the operation of our website, or analyze interest in the areas of our website. Additionally, if you provide GadgetOMG.com with content for publishing or feedback, we may publish your user name or other identifying data with your permission.

GadgetOMG.com may also disclose personally identifiable information in order to respond to a subpoena, court order or other such request. GadgetOMG.com may also provide such personally identifiable information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request or as otherwise required by law. Your personally identifiable information may be provided to a third party if GadgetOMG.com files for bankruptcy, or there is a transfer of the assets or ownership of GadgetOMG.com in connection with proposed or consummated corporate reorganizations, such as mergers or acquisitions.

 

7. YOUR RIGHTS

Users residing in certain countries, including the European Union, are afforded certain rights regarding their personal information. Except where an exception or exemption applies, these rights include the ability to access, correct, and request deletion of your personal information.

While these rights are not applicable globally, all GadgetOMG.com users can manage their personal information, as further described below.

You can manage your preferences by following the “Update Your Preferences” link at the bottom of any of our emails. You can also request us to modify or delete the personal information you’ve provided to us by contacting us at contact@gadgetomg.com. We may only retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate business purposes.

 

8. SECURITY

GadgetOMG.com takes appropriate steps to ensure data privacy and security including through various hardware and software methodologies. However, GadgetOMG.com cannot guarantee the security of any information that is disclosed online.

We follow industry-standard practices to protect the data we collect and maintain, including using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt information as it travels over the internet. No method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is completely secure, so GadgetOMG.com cannot guarantee its absolute security.

In order to avoid data breaches, we only use third party data collection services (including but not limited to LeadPages for email capture, Mailchimp or Klaviyo for email service provider, etc.) that are internationally recognised and observe the same strict data collection privacy policies and practice the same diligence in protecting our customers and members' data as we do.

 

9. EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. We try to keep emails to a minimum and give you the ability to opt in to any marketing communications we send.

We will send you emails relating to your transactions on GadgetOMG.com. You may also elect to receive certain marketing email communications, in accordance with your preferences, and from which you may opt out at any time by adjusting your notification settings. We will also send you service-related announcements when it’s necessary to do so.

If you provide any information to such third parties, different rules regarding the collection and use of your personal information may apply.
