Privacy Policy

GENERAL POLICY

Dunlop Sports Americas, takes your privacy concerns seriously and does not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit this website ("Site"), unless you choose to provide such information to us. This means that you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. As explained more fully below, when you choose to provide Dunlop Sports with information about yourself when using the Site, Dunlop Sports uses that information solely for the stated purpose for which it invited you to submit such information.

Information You Might Provide and Use of Such Information

Dunlop Sports may collect personal information from you (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.) only when you voluntarily provide it to us. Depending on the purpose for which the information was provided, Dunlop Sports may use the information to communicate with you regarding our products, services, and promotions, to provide you with other information that you request, and/or to improve our product and service offerings.

Here are some circumstances in which Dunlop Sports might ask for personal information from our visitors to our Site, the types of information we obtain, and how we use the information:

  • If you choose to Contact Us through the Site, we may ask you for personal information such as your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address so that we can respond to your questions or comments. (Of course, if you send us an e-mail, we will at a minimum obtain your e-mail address.)
  • You may be asked to provide personal information if you:
    • Register for a sweepstakes, contest, or other promotion;
    • Ask to receive an online newsletter, mailing or other information or material from us; or
    • Otherwise participate in features of our website that ask for personal information.

Your participation in any of these activities (and therefore your provision of personally identifiable information) is entirely voluntary. Dunlop Sports may use the information you provide to respond to your questions or comments, to administer our promotions and Site, to fulfill your request, or to otherwise provide or improve our products and services. We will send you any online newsletter, mailing or similar e-mail communication only after you expressly consent to receive such a communication from us. And if you do choose to receive any such e-mail communication from us, you will always have the opportunity to "unsubscribe" from receiving the e-mail at any time.

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION AND THIRD PARTIES

 

Dunlop Sports may share your personal information with other parties if you consent to us sharing such information with third parties.

We also may provide your personal information to third parties who provide services on our behalf. These parties may use the information solely in conjunction with the specific services they provide for us (e.g., responding to your question or comment, providing a newsletter or mailing, etc.). Dunlop Sports reserves the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets to a third party. We also reserve the right to share information within the DUNLOP SPORTS AMERICAS among our various businesses. We also reserve the right to disclose any personal information as needed if such information is requested by law enforcement agencies or if we are required to do so by law, regulation, subpoena, court order, or by a government entity. We also may disclose personal information to third parties if we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to conduct investigations of possible breaches of law, to cooperate in any legal investigation, or to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the terms of use of our Site.

Information Automatically Gathered by the Site and Use of Such Information

For example, Dunlop Sports may monitor statistics such as how many people visit the Site; which pages people visit on the Site; from which domains our visitors come; and which browsers people use to visit the Site. Dunlop Sports may use these general statistics to improve the Site, to monitor its performance, and to make the Site easier for you and other visitors to use.

We reserve the right to employ cookie technology, web beacons, and similar devices on our Site to facilitate site administration and navigation and to provide an enhanced online experience for our visitors.

Newsletter and use of the mail service provider “MailChimp”

With our newsletter we inform you about current offers, products and service providers. If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you. The data are collected that are entered into the input mask during registration. In order to be able to address you personally, we ask you to state the title and the name. Of course you can also use a pseudonym here. This data will only be used for sending the newsletter. In addition to these data, we also store the date of registration. This logging serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address and orders the newsletter without your knowledge under your e-mail address.

Our newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

For this purpose, your e-mail address, as well as other voluntarily given data, will be processed on the servers of MailChimp in the USA on our behalf.

MailChimp also uses this data, according to its own statements, to optimize its own services. Any further use is excluded.

Besides the fact that MailChimp has declared itself to comply with the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, we have also concluded a “Data-Processing-Agreement” with MailChimp. This agreement obliges MailChimp to comply with our privacy policy. You can read the privacy policy of Mail-Chimp at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/

Cancellation / revocation: You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for the newsletter dispatch at any time. At the same time your consents to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analysis expire. A separate cancellation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. In each newsletter you will find a link to unsubscribe.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Our website uses buttons for the social networks:

Facebook, Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA

Twitter, Twitter Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA

Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA

The buttons are marked with the logo of the respective social network. However, these are not the usual social plugins, but buttons with stored links. You can activate (click) the buttons separately. If these buttons are not clicked, no data will be transmitted to the social networks. Only when you click on the buttons and thereby declare your consent to communication with the servers of the social network, the buttons become active and the connection is established.

After clicking the button corresponds to a so-called share plugin. The social network is provided with information about the page you visit, which you can share with your contacts on your social network. If you want to share the information, you must be logged in. If you are not logged in, you will be taken to the login page of the social network you clicked on and you will no longer be on our pages. Once you are logged in, the information will be sent that you would like to recommend the respective article.

By activating the button, the social network then also receives information that and when you have called up the corresponding page of our website, as well as e.g. your IP address, information about the browser used and the language settings. When you click the button, your click is sent to the social network and used according to its data usage guidelines.

When activating the button, we have no influence on the collected data and data processing processes and are not responsible for this data processing and are also not responsible in terms of the GDPR. We are also not aware of the full scope of data collection, its legal basis, the purposes and the storage periods. Therefore, the information provided here is not necessarily complete.

The data is transferred regardless of whether you actually have an account with the provider or are logged in there. If you are logged in with the provider, your data will be directly assigned to your account. Providers may also use cookies on your computer to track you.

To our knowledge, the provider stores this data in user profiles which it uses for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) to the representation of demand-fair advertisement and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise this right of objection, please contact the respective provider.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the respective social network as well as your relevant rights and employment options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the information provided.

Additionally, from time to time we operate competitions and prize draws via social networks. If you enter any of these competitions and/or prize draws, we will collect and process the personal data that you provide to us in accordance with this policy.
