Thank you for your interest in Blåkläder. We take the privacy rights of our Users very seriously and strive to be compliant with any and all applicable privacy and data protection regulations at all times.

Confidentiality of your Personal Data
Blåkläder shall only process your Personal Data in compliance with the terms of this policy and applicable regulations. It shall make sure that the confidential nature of your Personal Data is duly preserved and shall put in place reasonable measures to secure and protect Your Personal Data. Where You would be asked to register as a User, Blåkläder also invites you to help securing Your Personal data by avoiding the use of obvious passwords and/or user names, by changing your passwords regularly and by making sure you do not share your Personal Data with third parties or store them in an insecure manner.
Blåkläder shall avoid collecting Personal data that is not relevant for its relationship with You and shall not retain the data longer than necessary for the Purposes or, as the case may be, for the period as determined by agreement or law.
Use and storage of Your Personal Data
All Personal Data You provide to Blåkläder is stored on secure servers. In addition, Blåkläder and its service providers will always take the utmost care to protect Your Personal Data. However, the transmission of information via the internet can never be completely secure and the provision of Personal Data hence remains at your own risk at all times.
Blåkläder may use Your Personal Data for the following purposes (“the Purposes”):
- compliance with Blåkläder’s obligations ensuing from the making available of the Website and its contents;
- registering You as a User via the Website and running the Website services (including the processing of queries or requests for information concerning Blåkläder, its products or services) as well as allowing you to efficiently use those products and services and the Website;

Cookies and Web Beacons
Blåkläder is constantly striving to improve the experience of its Users on its Website and beyond. That is why, for certain sections of the Website, cookies are used.
Cookies are small text files that Your browser installs on your computer and that enable the Website to recognize You upon your next visit. With the help of cookies, Blåkläder can for example identify the most popular sections of the Website, since they allow Blåkläder to know which pages Users visit and how much time they spend browsing them. On the basis of these aggregated data, Blåkläder can adjust the Website to better reflect User requirements and to offer a more customer-oriented experience. Thanks to cookies, Blåkläder can also make sure that the information appearing on Your screen during the next visit to the Website is tuned in to Your preferences as a User.
The Website, as well as certain notifications such as promotional e-mail messages, may contain web beacons. These are tiny images or objects embedded in a web page or email and are usually invisible to the User, but allow Blåkläder to verify whether a User has viewed the page or email in question. Web beacons generally function in combination with cookies and Blåkläder uses the two in the same manner.
For more information in this regard, please read our cookies policy.
Individuals under the age of 18 years old should not provide Us with their Personal Data without the prior consent and supervision of their parent or guardian. Without such permission, Blåkläder does not wish to save Personal Data from such individuals, nor process or forward such data to any third parties.
