The product is a proprietary technology of the Company and is used in the Online Media Trading business. We use this Product to aggregate links from different online stores in one place.
In the Company we are committed to making sure that absolutely everything we do is always Data-Privacy-Compliant by Design.

This information is for statistical purposes only as it will help us improve our service and product.
You must understand what is defined by the GDPR as personal data, to fully comprehend exactly what we do. As defined in Article 4 of the GDPR, under Definitions:

What are our processing methods?
Although the Company does not store, have access to, share, or use any of your data, we still use data to have statistically-relevant insights that help us run our business. That means, that we do collect, process and store data, just not any personal data of yours. In every case where we collect data that might be considered personal data, we obfuscate that data to eliminate all possibilities of it being linked to a specific person. This process that is known, under the GDPR guidelines, as pseudonymisation, takes information such as your IP Address (which is personal data) and converts it into anonymous data that can only serve for statistical purposes. This process is done automatically, it is irreversible and allows us to work with data without compromising your privacy.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.
