Customer service and communication
When you contact customer service or communicate with us in a different context, we collect and process the information you provide in order to deal with your enquiries and we rely on our legitimate interest to deliver customer services to process this information. We encourage you not to provide sensitive personal information (e.g. health information) to us unless it is strictly necessary for processing your enquiry. If you choose to send sensitive information to us via e-mail, it should only be in encrypted form.
In addition to the above purposes, Georg Jensen may also process your personal information based on Georg Jensen's legitimate interests in carrying out other marketing, evaluating and developing our products and services as well as compiling statistics and analyses, and also for compliance with legal requirements or for determining or defending legal claims.
Sensitive personal data
If you give us sensitive personal data for any reason Georg Jensen will only keep that information if it is absolutely necessary. The data will be stored in a secure manner and access will be limited to those Georg Jensen personnel who have a business need to know.
With whom does Georg Jensen share your personal information?
Georg Jensen does not disclose your personal information to third parties unless it is necessary for the fulfilment of our contract with you, for example to payment services providers to process your payment, and carriers in connection with the delivery of orders, or we have your permission.
However, under certain circumstances and pursuant to the law, it may be necessary to disclose personal data to public authorities or the police. For example, information may be disclosed to the police in case of suspicion of credit card fraud.
If you have signed up for our newsletters and other marketing content and have chosen the United Kingdom as your home market, your personal data will be shared with Georg Jensen Ltd. in order for Georg Jensen Ltd. to e.g. invite you to events in a local Georg Jensen store or to provide you with other relevant marketing content. Georg Jensen A/S and Georg Jensen Ltd. have established a joint controllership regarding this specific setup with the purpose of giving you the best customer experience in relation to relevant marketing information. The joint controllership enables Georg Jensen Ltd. to contact you directly and to process your personal data for their own purposes in relation to providing you with relevant marketing content. Both Georg Jensen A/S and Georg Jensen 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 data from Georg Jensen A/S to Georg Jensen Ltd. under the joint controllership is based on the Commission Decision 2004/915/EU of 27 December 2004 (Controller to controller).
In certain instances, Georg Jensen transfers your personal data to Georg Jensen's suppliers who provide services on behalf of Georg Jensen, for example, billing, sales, marketing, IT support, advertising, analytics, research, product service support, shipping and purchase order fulfilment, data storage, validation, security, fraud prevention, payment processing, and legal services. These suppliers process personal data on behalf of Georg Jensen and in accordance with Georg Jensen's instructions and thus cannot process personal data for their own purposes.
In addition, we may disclose your personal data to other Georg Jensen group entities in order to deliver products and services to you, to ensure a consistent level of service across our products and services, to enhance our products, services and your customer experience.
A number of Georg Jensen's suppliers who process personal data on behalf of Georg Jensen are located outside the EU/EEA. However, we only transfer personal data to suppliers who can provide the necessary guarantees that an adequate level of data protection is in place. Therefore, your personal data will only be transferred to a recipient outside the EU/EEA, if the recipient is certified under the US-EU Privacy Shield Framework (USA only), or if we have entered into a standard contract approved by the EU Commission with the party concerned.
