You have the option of opening a customer account on wittom.in. Personal data about you is stored in this customer account (including name, address, order information). To "log in" to the customer account, you must enter the email address you used when you registered and the password you assigned. Our password policy stipulates that you use a secure password, which must consist of 8 digits, among other things, and must not contain your name. Wittom.in has taken very high technical and organizational measures to protect your data stored by Wittom.in. Effective protection of your data is only possible if you store your access data securely and protect them from unauthorized access by third parties. It is often the case that users assign the same password for different services. You should absolutely avoid this. In addition, there is the phenomenon that third parties use so-called “phishing emails” to try to obtain login data and other information (e.g. credit card data) without authorization. Please check requests for the provision of personal data, especially if you reach them by email, very carefully for their authenticity. Wittom.in permanently checks whether unauthorized log-ins are being made in customer accounts. If Wittom.in suspects that unauthorized access has occurred, Wittom.in will block the customer account. In addition, Wittom.in can inform you if significant changes have been made to your customer account (e.g. change of address data or email address) so that you can check whether the change has been made lawfully or by an unauthorized third party.

In order to provide you with the greatest possible comfort, we offer you the permanent storage of personal data in a password-protected customer account / user account.

The creation of the customer account is basically voluntary. It is only necessary to open a customer account to process the contract if you want to place orders via the wittom.in platform. If you create a customer account, the processing of your data collected here for the maintenance of the customer account is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b) GDPR. No further data entry is required after setting up a customer account. In addition, you can view and change the data stored about you in your customer account at any time.

You have the option to delete your customer account at any time. Please note, however, that all data that can be viewed in the customer account will not be deleted at the same time once you have ordered from us. So we have to e.g. Continue to store data on orders placed, provided that guarantees have been granted with regard to the goods you have purchased and these have not yet expired. Your data will be deleted automatically after the commercial and tax retention obligations that apply to us have expired. The legal basis for this further data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter c) GDPR and Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR.

To set up a customer account, you must enter a password of your choice. Together with your email address, this is used to access your customer account. Our password policy stipulates that you use a secure password, which must consist of 8 digits, among other things, and must not contain your name. WITTOM.IN has taken very high technical and organizational measures to protect your data stored by WITTOM.IN. Effective protection of your data is only possible if you store your access data securely and protect them from unauthorized access by third parties. It is often the case that users assign the same password for different services. You should absolutely avoid this. In addition, there is the phenomenon that third parties use so-called “phishing emails” to try to obtain login data and other information (e.g. credit card data) without authorization. Please check requests for the provision of personal data, especially if you reach them by email, very carefully for their authenticity. Wittom.in permanently checks whether unauthorized log-ins are being made in customer accounts. If Wittom.in suspects that unauthorized access has occurred, Wittom.in will block the customer account. In addition, Wittom.in can inform you if significant changes have been made to your customer account (e.g. change of address data or email address) so that you can check whether the change has been made lawfully or by an unauthorized third party. Please also note that you will automatically remain logged in after leaving our website, unless you actively log out.

In connection with the protection of your data, please note the following overall:

Basically: Protect your customer account and also your computer, laptop or mobile device with secure passwords and PIN codes that only you know! Also make sure to log out of every online purchase at wittom.in.

Make sure that you only ever use your passwords for one account! Never use one password for different providers or portals. Check whether you are also using the password you have chosen for wittom.in on other websites. If this is the case, we strongly advise you to change all passwords immediately.

Do not write down the passwords in a freely accessible place. Again, make sure that only you have access to the passwords.

Passwords should be chosen so that they cannot be easily guessed, e.g. no common words from everyday life, own names or names of relatives. To make the password even more secure, we recommend the combined use of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters.

Should you ever use a publicly accessible computer, always make sure that you log off after your visit to wittom.in.

Warning against forged emails (spoofing), spam and phishing:

Unfortunately, Wittom.in is also misused as the alleged sender in this scam. Specifically, this means that consumers receive fake emails on behalf of Wittomin. These emails are often based on the Wittom.in brand layout and may be difficult to distinguish from real Wittom.in emails.

The fraudsters want to exploit the trust between Wittom.in and its customers and thus steal sensitive data (e.g. login, customer data, payment information) or install harmful software (such as viruses or Trojans) on your computer or smartphone.

These e-mails are not created and sent by Wittom.in, even if our name is used as the sender. Wittom.in can therefore unfortunately not influence the sending of these inadmissible e-mails.

The following are some of the characteristics that you can use to identify e-mails from Wittom.in:

• Wittom.in neither asks you for personal information by email, nor does Wittom.in ask you to confirm personal data via a link in an email.

• You will only receive order confirmations and invoices from Wittom.in for orders that you have actually placed.

• Wittom.in only sends e-mails with file attachments if you have explicitly requested them from us (e.g. operating instructions, invoice).

• Mails from Wittom.in should not have any spelling or grammatical errors, as these are always proofread before being sent.

How to deal with spam, phishing and spoofing emails properly:

• We recommend that you delete suspicious emails immediately.

• Never open links or attachments in suspicious emails and do not reveal any personal information.

• If you have accidentally clicked on the links in the e-mail, change your Wittom.in password under My Account immediately. We also recommend that you run a virus scan on your computer.

• If the email contains unusual or suspicious information about orders or your customer details, log in to My Account. All the orders you have actually placed are listed there and you can check the order status and the respective invoice numbers. To do this, enter the address https://wittom.in manually in the address line of your browser. This is how you prevent a link in the email from taking you to fraudulent websites.

Our tip and service for you: If you are ever unsure, send us an email to: contact@wittom.in

You have the option as a guest or with a customer account to leave comments / product reviews or other contributions on wittom.in. If users leave comments / product reviews or other posts on wittom.in, their IP addresses are stored for 7 or 14 days on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. This is done for our safety, if illegal content is left in comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). If you leave a comment, a recommendation or a rating on products, brands and styles, we process the personal data that you voluntarily enter as part of the comment or rating.

5.4 In connection with our newsletters

As customers or interested parties, we would like to send you our newsletter. If you order from us as a guest or as a registered customer, we will send you on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR i.V. to our newsletter with § 7 Abs. 3 UWG and our legitimate interests to inform you about current product recommendations (direct marketing). You also have the option of actively registering with us as a newsletter customer and receiving our newsletter at a frequency you have chosen. In order to register you as a newsletter subscription and to send you the newsletter, we need your email address as well as your title, first and last name so that we can address you personally. The sending takes place on the basis of your explicit consent (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a GDPR).

The so-called double opt-in procedure is used to register for the newsletter. This means that after you have registered, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. This confirmation is required in order to avoid that someone can register with someone else's e-mail address. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. We also save the IP addresses you use and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data; the logging of the registration process is our legitimate interest acc. Art. 6 I f) GDPR.

You can object to the personalization of our newsletter at any time by sending us an email to contact@wittom.in. If you make use of this, we will not carry out any further personalization, but we will continue to send you our general newsletter.

You can also completely unsubscribe from our newsletters at any time, e.g. via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can send your unsubscribe request at any time to contact@wittom.in by email. Your personal data processed in this context and exclusively for the purpose of sending the newsletter will be deleted immediately after you unsubscribe, but we will keep the fact that you have objected and your e-mail address in order not to inadvertently send you the newsletter in the future
