Anonymous visitor identifiers (cookies) are files or pieces of information stored on your computer (or other internet-compatible devices such as smartphones or tablets) when you visit one of our websites. A cookie generally contains the name of the website where it came from, its own “lifetime” (i.e. how long it will remain on your device) and its value that is usually a randomly generated unique number.
As for their duration, there are so-called session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary, that is, they remain on your device only until you are browsing our website.

- B) Profiling
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data evaluating the personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning the data subject's personal preferences or interests, location or movements.
With the help of profiling, the Service Provider can send you targeted, customised offers and messages based on your previous orders and online behaviour.
The Service Provider can obtain data necessary for profiling through the following activities:
- completion of the profile diversification questionnaire: name, email, date of birth, sex, purpose (what is your goal with using food supplement products? e.g. getting ripped, diet, bulking up).
- online shop purchase: purchase data (what, when, for how much, from where, payment method).
- browsing the website, behaviour: website use (the page visited is a product page, category page, cart content, search).
On the basis of purchase and behaviour information and by using artificial intelligence, Emarsys eMarketing Systems GmbH identifies data concerning the user based on which the Service Provider can create segments suitable for running personalised campaigns.
Personal data processed: a) collected from the data subject: name, email, city, postcode, date of birth, phone number, sex, purchase data, IP address (used for registration); b) derived data collected other than from the data subject: (based on prediction or machine learning algorithm): favourite products, favourite categories, date and duration of last website visit; c) in addition, there are other data which the Service Provider can filter and use for creating segments: email interactions (opening/clicking/affinity for email categories, device and city of clicking/opening), user’s purchase life cycle, customer status (based on spending), average spending.
Purpose of processing: sending targeted, personalised offers and messages.
Duration of processing: until the withdrawal of the data subject’s consent. In order to ensure that the data are not kept longer than necessary, the data controller will erase the personal data after 3 years from the date of such consent even if consent is not withdrawn.
Recipients: as data processors, Emarsys eMarketing Systems GmbH (address: Märzstrasse 1, 1150 Vienna, Austria) and Antavo Ltd. (registered seat: 9th floor, 107 Cheapside, London EC2V 6DN, United Kingdom; company registration number: 8046168; tax number: GB137725793; website: https://www.antavo.com/)
- C) Remarketing
Remarketing allows the Service Provider to display advertisements for persons who have visited its website earlier or have provided their email address.
Personal data processed: email address, purchase data.
Purpose of processing: displaying advertisements for Website users on Facebook and Google.
Legal basis of processing: the Service Provider’s legitimate interest as per Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (direct marketing). The Service Provider obtains the user’s email address when the user subscribes to the newsletter, based on the subscriber’s consent. This means that the Data Controller is processing the provided email address also for a purpose (remarketing) other than the purpose of data collection (delivery of newsletters).
Duration of processing: the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such remarketing purposes. Should the user withdraw his or her consent given to the delivery of newsletters (which he or she may do at any time), the user’s data will not be processed for remarketing purposes either. In order to ensure that the data are not kept longer than necessary, the data controller will erase the personal data after 3 years from the date of last opening a newsletter even if no objection or the withdrawal of consent is submitted.
Recipients: Emarsys eMarketing Systems GmbH as data processor (address: Märzstrasse 1, 1150 Vienna, Austria), that, based on the Service Provider’s instructions, transfers the advertisement to be displayed, along with the email addresses, to Facebook Ireland Ltd. (address: 4 Grand Canal square, Grand Canal Harbour, D2 Dublin, Ireland; Facebook Ads) and to Google Inc. (address: 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, California 94043, USA) (Google AdWords), which are also data processors and display the advertisement for their registered users whose email address kept on record with them is included in the list received from Emarsys.
