Whether you're an Internet user just passing through, or a long-standing customer, we've earned your trust. That's why we're committed to keeping your personal data safe and secure, using it only for the purposes for which it was collected, and never selling it to a third party.
To function, an online sales website needs a certain amount of information about its customers: without it, it would be impossible for us to deliver your parcels quickly, answer your questions and guarantee you a comfortable user experience. That said, we are well aware that collecting this data makes us responsible for it.
Baltic Watches takes this responsibility very seriously: you'll find below an exhaustive review of the personal data we may collect, as well as a precise explanation of how it may be used. You will then discover the detailed presentation of the rights and tools available to you to control, modify, or request the deletion of your personal information.
Your identity and postal address: This information is required so that we have your purchases sent to you.
Your e-mail address and telephone numbers: These are essential for us to be able to follow up your order and navigate through the history of our exchanges in the event of a prolonged discussion. With your prior consent, we may also send you newsletters about our offers and promotions. If you are no longer interested, you are free to stop these communications at any time from your customer account.
Your title (Mr./Mrs.): This simply enables us to adapt our communications.
The history of our exchanges: This is used to track conversations with our customers, for example to check the progress of a complaint and/or for commercial exchanges (personalized offers).
Your purchase history: As part of our product warranty and after-sales support, we need to keep a record of the information associated with each transaction. This information enables us, for example, to issue invoices or confirm the validity of the warranty.
Your browsing information: This data is used for statistical purposes to optimize and personalize the user experience on our sites, and to better understand what our customers expect from us. This data is also used as part of our fraud detection and prevention mechanisms.
Payment information: We record information relating to the transaction (type of payment method, date and time of validation, etc.), but we never record your credit card identifier, PayPal login or any other information: When you make a purchase, you always enter this information directly on the secure pages of our banking partners (Mollie, PayPal, Alma, Klarna, etc.).
Responsibility for processing your personal data lies with MDB SARL, a limited liability company with capital of €75,000, registered in the Paris Trade Register under number 830 050 712, with its registered office at 29 rue du Château Landon, 75010 Paris.

Our entire IT architecture and the information it contains are secured through the use of recognized specialist service providers with industry-standard security certifications covering, among other things, the management and traceability of authorizations, databases, confidentiality aspects, etc. as follows:
This certification specifies the requirements for implementing, maintaining and continuously improving our information security management system. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks. Annual audit report available on request. More details : ISO 27001 certification
This certification enables a specialized audit firm to issue an opinion on the controls in place, relating to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and/or data protection. Annual audit report available on request. More details : SOC 2 certification

In principle, you are under no obligation to give us any information about yourself. However, it is impossible for us to allow you to place an order without collecting your name or address.
In certain countries or for certain types of order, local legislation may oblige us to request specific information such as tax region, tax code, profession, national identity card or passport number and/or social security number when you make a purchase. If such information is required by local regulations, you will not be able to order from Baltic Watches without providing it to us.
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, and never sell or pass it on to third parties. The only information that may be transmitted is that which enables us to fulfill orders, ensure the smooth running of our services and provide you with appropriate commercial offers. For example, we are obliged to give your postal address to the company responsible for delivering your order to your home address. Apart from the cases listed below, we never pass on your personal data to third parties:
Service providers in charge of preparing or delivering packages.
Payment organizations that secure the transaction.
Service providers involved in the technical aspects of running the Baltic Watches boutique, in particular for website access and communication: email routing, SMS routing, web hosting.
Marketing service providers: They help us personalize your experience on the Baltic Watches boutique as much as possible.
Please also note that as required by law, MDB SARL may declare your tax region, tax code, occupation, national identity card or passport number and/or social security number in connection with any of your orders to a legal or government entity (e.g. police investigation) or, if necessary, in connection with the payment of certain taxes when processing payments (payment of VAT).
On very rare occasions, we may work with service providers based abroad, which means that your data may be transferred via infrastructures located outside France. When this happens, we make sure beforehand that the service provider concerned offers the necessary guarantees for the security of your data, and that the transfer is carried out in accordance with the applicable regulations.
When you create a customer account with Baltic Watches, we begin a relationship that requires us to retain certain personal information with your consent. All your personal data is kept for a period of 5 years after your last activity (logging in to your account, placing an order or implementing a warranty, for example). After this period, they are automatically deleted.
You can also ask us to delete your personal data at any time.
If you have any questions or requests for information, or if you wish to exercise your right to modify or delete certain information concerning you, please contact the Data Protection Officer, Mr Etienne MALEC, at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
