Sharing your Personal Information
If you have signed up to My Georg Jensen in Australia or New Zealand or have stated Australia or New Zealand as your country, or have made any retail or online purchases at Georg Jensen in Australia or New Zealand, your Personal Information will be shared with Georg Jensen Pty Ltd in Australia in order for us to invite you to events in your local store or to provide you with other relevant marketing content (if you have subscribed to such marketing content). Georg Jensen A/S and Georg Jensen Pty Ltd have established a joint controllership regarding this specific setup for the purpose of giving you the best customer experience in relation to your relevant market. The joint controllership enables your local Georg Jensen store to contact you directly and to process your Personal Information to provide you with relevant marketing content. Georg Jensen A/S and Georg Jensen Pty Ltd are responsible for protecting your rights as a data subject, ensuring the necessary security measures and use of data processors. The transfer of Personal Information between Georg Jensen A/S and your local Georg Jensen store under the joint controllership is based on the Commission Decision 2004/915/EU of 27 December 2004 (Controller to controller).
Furthermore, we may share your Personal Information with other affiliates in the Georg Jensen group if you identify yourself as a My Georg Jensen member to those affiliates, such as if you visit Georg Jensen stores in other countries.
If you identify yourself as a My Georg Jensen member to an overseas store, the sales assistant will be able to view your profile from the e-mail address connected to your membership, including your name, telephone number, e-mail address, membership number and purchase history. When you identify yourself as a My Georg Jensen member in an overseas store by providing your e-mail address, you agree to your Personal Information being transferred to the country where that Georg Jensen store is located.
We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties in order for us to meet our obligations to you, such as to fulfil the delivery of your orders (using external couriers).
Your Personal Information may also be shared with suppliers who deliver services on our behalf (such as for the delivery of our e-newsletters and other communications). In those instances, the use of your information by the suppliers will be subject to agreements that ensure they: (a) have put in place sufficient technical and organisational precautions to protect your Personal Information from unauthorised or illegal access, loss, misuse, interference, modification or disclosure; (b) have limited access to your Personal Information only to employees involved in providing the desired service; (c) only use your Personal Information in accordance with these Membership Terms; and (d) do not use your Personal Information for any other purpose than that associated with providing the required service or with our written instructions.
