● Performance of Contract. We treat your personal information in order to fulfill the purchase agreement with you as a customer and/or member or to provide any other services we agree to provide to you. Based on this legal basis, we treat information such as your purchases and your interaction with our customer service.
● Legitimate Interest. Part of the processing of personal data we carry out is based on our legitimate interest when we conduct and manage our business. This applies, for example, to the personal data we process to send you personal offers and to make a limited segmentation of customers. For example, this includes the processing and analysing of your purchase history, your buying behavior and your behavior on gant.co.uk in order to gain more knowledge about you as a customer and our customers in general as well as to improve our offers.
● Law Compliance. In some cases, GANT may have a legal obligation to process your personal data to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
● Consent. Generally, GANT does not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data, other than in relation to marketing purposes such as direct marketing and newsletters.

Please note: You are never required to share your personal data with us, however, if you do not submit your personal data to us, we will not be able to fulfill our agreement or fulfill our commitments in relation to you.

6. Who can access your personal data?

Your personal data is for some purposes shared with parties who process personal data on our behalf, so-called processors. We will provide your personal data to the following;
● Suppliers of IT systems such as gant.co.uk, it.gant.com, pt.gant.com, fr.gant.com, es.gant.com, nl.gant.com, be.gant.com and its sub-suppliers in development and support. These companies provide services, technical solutions and platforms for GANT.

Only applicable for GANT Loyalty members:
● Franchise Companies. Those who provide and sell products under GANT's trademark have access to your personal data so that you can use your member benefits in the store;
● Other partners. As a member of GANT, we also want to offer you the benefits from any of our partners. This means that in order for you to benefit from their offers and benefits we need to share some of your personal data, such as name, email, mobile number and social security number to be able to identify you as a member. Offers in cooperation with external partners will only be sent by GANT and the personal data provided to partners will only be used to identify you as a GANT member.

We also transfer your personal data to joint or independent controllers:
● Collaborating partners. To handle payments made by GANT's customers, we use suppliers to ensure secure payment solutions;
● Other companies within the GANT group. Since GANT is an international company, some of your personal data is disclosed to companies in the GANT Group which operate in other countries such as Sweden, Germany, UK, France, Benelux and Switzerland;

7. Transfer of personal data to third countries

We always strive to process your data within the EU / EEA. However, the data may in some situations be transferred to, and processed in, non-EU / EEA countries by a company within the GANT group or by another supplier or subcontractor. As GANT is determined to always protect your personal data, GANT will take all reasonable legal, technical and organizational measures to ensure that your personal data is handled securely and with an adequate level of protection comparable to and at the same level as the protection offered in EU / EEA. For instance, we may implement one of the following safeguards:

• Only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
• Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
• Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.

8. For how long is your personal data retained?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as you have consented to it or when is necessary to us to provide you with our services or fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, reporting or regulatory requirements. For instance, by law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including contact, identity, financial and transaction data) typically for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your personal data.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Only applicable for GANT Loyalty members: Your personal data will as a general rule be saved until you end your membership or automatically due to inactivity for a period of 24 months. You may contact us at any time and terminate your membership and request that we remove your personal data.

For further information, see section 14.
