PROTECTING YOUR DATA IS OUR PRIME CONCERN!

We know that the careful handling of your personal data matters to you. Since the protection of your personal data plays such an important role at Ariana Lapis, inquiry, processing and application of your data is dealt with strictly accordingly to the regulations of the German Federal Data Protection Act and Teleservices Data Protection Act. Principally you can visit our web site without leaving personal information. In some cases, however, we need such data, for instance:

  • if you are ordering products
  • if you are ordering the catalogue
  • if you are participating in competitions
  • if you are contacting us
  • if you are using the protected area "My Account"

All personal data is of course treated confidentially. Your data help us to perform our services and make your shopping an individual experience we can steadily improve.

In order to be able to contact you more easily and quickly by mail, we ask you to inform us of your email address.

When does Ariana Lapis process and apply personal data?

We save personal data in order to optimally handle orders and pass them on to other businesses if necessary. For instance, we might hand data to a delivery service, who will ship the articles right to your doorstep. The receiver may only use the information for the completion of his task.

Of course you can revoke your permission for the use, procession and passing on of your data for marketing use at any time by sending us an according message. You can do this by mailing an informal notice to Ariana Lapis - Data Protection Agent -, Talstr. 30, 40217 Düsseldorf, Germany or sending an email to ariana-lapis@ariana-lapis.de.

We will make public customer accounts and personal data of customers if we are legally obliged to do so, or when such a disclosure is necessary in order to pursue our claims or to protect our rights as well as the rights of our customers or any third party. This includes an exchange of data with institutions that specialise in the prevention and minimisation of credit card abuse and fraud. It is explicitly stated that information handed on in these cases is not for economic use that would contradict this statement of data security.

How does Ariana Lapis protect your personal data?

Before the data is transferred to us, we currently encrypt it using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. It is one of the most secure and most used procedures on the internet. Should another process of superior security become common, we will be using it.

Ariana Lapis further uses a multitude of additional security measures in order to protect your personal data. Because of these security measures, you will occasionally be asked to confirm your identity before being displayed personal information. An example for this proceeding is the access to "My Account", which is only possible by entering a log-in and password.

It is important for you to protect yourself against unauthorised access to your password and your computer. If you are sharing your computer with others, you should take care to log out from the password-protected areas on www.ariana-lapis.com after every session.

Our business is constantly changing. Equally, this declaration of data security and our terms of use are subject to change. We reserve the right to inform you about our current guidelines in certain intervals. However, in any case you should regularly visit our website and take note of changes. If nothing else is arranged, the use of any and all information we have about you and your customer account is subject to this declaration of data security. We ensure you that major changes in our declaration of data security that would lead to a weaker protection of already obtained customer data will only ever be made with the concerned customers' approval.
