Its registered office is located in France at 38, rue du Mont Thabor 75 001 PARIS.

What information do we collect and for what purpose?
WHITEbIRD may collect and process your personal data for a variety of purposes. Your personal data may be processed to fulfil orders you have placed for items or services via our site, to contact you about difficulties with your order or in cases where we need to provide your personal data to some of our service providers about your order (these reasons are referred to as "for business purposes"). Your personal data may also be processed for marketing purposes, including sending users our newsletter, marketing communications, product information and updates, offers, announcements for exclusive sales, promotional campaigns and announcements for events and similar initiatives organised by WHITEbIRD, or to facilitate navigation of our Site (these reasons are referred to as "marketing purposes"). For marketing purposes only, WHITEbIRD has appointed certain entities that will also process personal data of the users of the Site. These service providers have been chosen because of their experience in processing personal data and their guarantees with regard to compliance with data protection legislation (including the technical security measures necessary for the procedure to be carried out). When processing personal data for business purposes, service providers should only act in accordance with the instructions provided by WHITEbIRD. We regularly ensure that our service providers follow our instructions to the letter and that they continue to provide sufficient guarantees of their full compliance with data protection legislation.
The service providers who use your personal data for commercial purposes include
SQUARK for reasons related to the hosting of WHITEbIRD's servers;
STRIPE, ALMA and PAYPAL for reasons related to payment methods;
FEDEX, DHL for reasons related to shipping services.
Your personal data is mainly processed electronically and sometimes in paper form, for example when the processing of your personal data is necessary to prevent a risk of fraud on the site. Your personal data must be stored in such a way that we can identify you for a sufficient period of time, for the purposes for which it was collected, and subsequently processed in accordance with data protection legislation. Your personal data must not be disclosed to third parties other than ourselves for reasons not permitted by law or without your consent.
Why is this data important?
Providing us with your personal data (including your first and last name, email address, postal address, bank and credit card details and telephone number) is necessary to process your order to purchase items from our site, to provide other services available on our site at your request or, in some cases, to fulfil certain obligations required by law or other forms of regulation. Refusal to provide us with some of your personal information required to perform the above tasks may prevent us from processing your order or fulfilling our obligations under law or other forms of regulation. Therefore, refusal to provide us with your personal data may, in some cases, be a valid and legitimate reason for not processing your order or for not providing you with the requested service.
The disclosure of more personal data than is necessary to fulfil our legal or contractual obligations or to properly navigate our site is, however, optional and has no impact on the use of the site and its services or on the purchase of items on our site.
Security measures and data retention period
To which countries may your personal data be transferred?
The personal data we collect from you is currently held within the European Union (EU). However, it is possible that in the future this personal data may be transferred, stored and/or processed outside the EU, in particular to the United States.
By providing your personal data, you consent to this transfer, storage and/or processing. You should therefore be aware that countries outside the European Union may not offer the same level of protection for personal data as the European Union. However, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal data is afforded equivalent protection in accordance with data protection legislation, including putting in place appropriate contractual terms in our agreements with our business partners who may have a role in the transfer of personal information to ensure that your personal data is processed in accordance with our instructions and in a way that ensures its integrity and security.
