In addition to the system for protecting your data, other procedures are adopted for your security. All payment transactions, with or without credit card, are performed with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology, ensuring that all the customer’s personal data, such as delivery address, credit card data and order history , be safe.

PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING
Zek Buzz processes data collected about you for different purposes. For example, if you create a customer account on our website, the data stored in your account will be processed by Zeek Buzz for the purpose of managing the customer’s account. At the same time, the address data stored in the customer’s account is also used, among other things, for the purpose of delivering ordered goods. Individual data collected about you may also be processed for the purpose of direct advertising with legitimate interests. As registration containing some of your personal data is mandatory for you to be able to place an order, we also need your email address to send you an electronic confirmation of your account creation or a confirmation after placing an order. The email address you provide will be used to send advertising if you have consented at the time of registration. You have full right to revoke the use of your e-mail address for this purpose at the time of registration or at any time by using the specific button for this purpose in e-mail advertisements or in any contact by our Support.

Among other things, our site uses online redirect technologies and cookies. These technologies make it possible to target users of our partner websites with online advertising who are already interested in our store and our products. We know from studies that displaying personalized interest-based advertising is more interesting to the Internet user than advertising that does not have that personal reference. Advertising material is displayed during the redirect based on an analysis of the user’s past behavior. Of course, no personal or pseudonymized data is stored here either, and redirection technologies are also used naturally, taking into account applicable legal data protection regulations.

We use the remarketing function in the Google AdWords service. With the remarketing function, we may serve ads based on your interests on other sites in the Google advertising network. To this end, your browsing behavior on our website is analyzed, for example, which offers you have viewed. This allows us to show you personalized advertising even after visiting our site on Google’s own online search engine called “Google Ads” and on other sites. To do this, Google stores a cookie on your browser when you visit Google services or websites on the Google advertising network. Your visits are recorded using this cookie.

This pixel collects information about the use of this website (for example, information about viewed articles). This information can be attributed to you with the help of other information that Facebook has stored about you, for example, due to ownership of an account on the social network “Facebook”. Based on the information collected through the pixel, you may be impacted with interest-based advertisements of our offerings in your “Facebook”, “Instagram” and “Messenger” accounts. The information collected through the pixel may also be aggregated by Facebook and the aggregated information may be used by Facebook for its own web advertising purposes and those of third parties. Facebook may, for example, deduce certain interests from your browsing behavior on this website and also use this information to advertise third-party offers.
