1 What are Personal Data and what data do we collect?
Personal Data are data and information which can be used to directly or indirectly identify an individual.
We collect and use Personal Data attributable to you when you use the Services or the Website. This may, for example, be your name and contact details, user name, purchasing information, behavior or data about or from the devices you use to connect to or make yourself available for the Services or the Website, such as information about the location of your mobile device, if you have chosen to enable location services on your mobile device. If you choose not to enable location services, the Services either do not work at all or only with limited functionality.
We also collect data that cannot be directly linked to you, such as merged data and aggregated information about the activities of multiple users in the Services, in order to gain knowledge about how we can provide users with better information and to understand which parts of the Website and the Services are of most interest.
2 What are your Personal Data used for and what is the legal basis for processing your Personal Data?
Your Personal Data are used to:
- provide you with Services;
- communicate with you via customer service, for example when you make an order or a complaint;
- create, develop, operate, deliver and improve the Services and the Website and their content; and
- prevent loss and fraud, for example by verifying the identity of yourself and others by sending you messages.
Moreover, your Personal Data are used in internal analyses to improve the Services, the Website and our communication with our Users.
We also process your data indirectly for the purpose of administering and testing the Website.
3 Disclosure of your Personal Data
We may provide suppliers who we collaborate with, as well as our IT Providers, both inside and outside the EU/EEA, access to your Personal Data. The purpose of this is to administer and fulfil our agreement with you and to ensure that our IT systems work.
Your Personal Data will always be processed confidentially and protected by appropriate security measures. When we engage suppliers of IT services outside the EU/EEA, we ensure that your data are adequately protected, for example by entering into a data transfer agreement (which includes the European Commission’s model clauses for the protection of Personal Data) with the supplier outside the EU/EEA who has access to our IT systems.
We may also share Personal Data with others if required to do so by law or if necessary to prevent, detect and prosecute illegal or suspected illegal activities or to prevent other damage or in response to a legal action or in order to enforce our rights and claims.
4 Third-party services
The Services and the Website may include links to third party Website that you may be redirected to. We are not liable for the processing of your Personal Data by such parties. We recommend that you carefully study the terms under which these parties handle your Personal Data.
Within the Services, you may be able to export information to third party applications and Website, such as Facebook or Twitter. If you make use of such opportunities, you may also export Personal Data. We are not liable for the processing of your Personal Data by such parties. We ask you to note that your information may be made available to others who visit or use such applications or Website.
5 What technical solutions do we use in our interaction with you?
We would particularly like to draw your attention to the fact that our Services, and the Website, are based on different technologies in order for them to be perceived as relevant by you as User, and in this regard, we particularly want to emphasise the following basic technical mechanisms:
- The device: Your digital device contains unique information that can be read by parties who wish to interact with your device in one way or another. You can restrict the exchange of certain information by actively closing features, but you may then face the risk that Services you wish to use no longer work/have limited functionality. As long as a digital device is turned on, it has a unique ID that can be detected and if the device has a SIM card it will also be able to be tracked. SIM stands for: Subscriber Identity Module. This means that the digital device always can be “seen” and tracked as a transmitter/receiver of radio signals.
- Your identity: When you register as a User with us, we will be able to customise our interaction with you on the basis of the information you provide. Your User Profile is a practical way for you to get an overview of the information you have given us access to. You only become a User after you have registered with us and given active consent.
- Time: We assume that our interaction with you as a User will vary depending on the time of year.
- Your location: Your digital device includes several technical solutions for communicating with you and your surroundings about where you are, such as Global Positioning System (GPS), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and web beacon tracking. These technologies are used to interact with your device in different ways. They can, for example, be used for access control, mapping, way-finding, security communication, offers regarding location-based services and products etc.
All devices that are connected to a digital network have an important feature that you should pay particular attention to: unlike a radio or a traditional TV, all communications are bi-directional. This means that all type of device usage responds to requests and transmits information about yourself and your behavior, location etc.
It is important that you also understand that in order to offer you relevant digital services, we will also collect the information described above. As a User, you should be particularly aware that combining data from a variety of sources provides even more detailed information about you and your behavior. This places greater demands on your awareness of how we use the data.
As a User of the Services, you agree that MCPEDL and the Suppliers have the opportunity to interact with you.
The interaction/communication will be implemented with the most appropriate technology/methodology available at the time. Please note that all digital communications collect and track information about you and your behaviour.

MCPEDL uses so-called cookies within the scope of the Services and the Website. A cookie is a small text file saved on your web browser. There are two types of cookies, persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies are stored as a file on your computer or mobile device for a certain period of time until you or the server which sent the cookies, erases them. Session cookies are stored temporarily and disappear when you close your web browser.
Session cookies are used while you are active in the Service or on the Website. Without them you could not, for example, go back in a shopping sequence without having to re-enter all the data every time. A “session cookie” is only stored temporarily in your computer’s RAM memory and is automatically removed when you close your web browser.
Most web browsers are configured to allow cookies to be stored. If you do not want to allow cookies, you can either set your web browser to prompt you every time a website wants to place a cookie on your computer or completely reject all cookies. Information about how to do this is available in the help function of your web browser. If you choose to disable cookies, it could mean that some functions of the Services may no longer work and the Services and Website may not work as well as you as User may expect.
