1 BASIS FOR PROCESSING personal data

1.1 Paragraphs 1.2 – 1.6 below explain how and why we process your personal data, as well as the legal basis on which we carry out this processing.

1.2 To provide products to you:

Where you order our products online in the United States or Canada (for example our SUP boards, paddles, clothing and accessories), we will process your personal data to provide these products to you (for example, by delivering products to you). Where you register for enhanced warranties, we will store your details and the information related to your product in connection with the enhanced warranty. Our use of your personal data in this way includes sharing your personal data with our employees and other personnel as well as certain suppliers such as the retail partner who claimed the order so they can arrange delivery, our payment gateway provider and our courier service.

We need to process your personal data in this way to be able to enter into and fulfil our contract with you for the sale of products and/or any enhanced warranty.

1.3  To make our website better:

We may also process personal data in order to provide you with a more tailored experience, including using personal data to make sure our website is displayed in the most effective way for the device you are using. This processing means that our services will be more tailored to you.

We also use various third party cookies to help us improve our website (more details are set out in section 3), but we will not share your personal data with the third party analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our website.

We will also process personal data for the purposes of making our website more secure, and to administer our website and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes.

The legal basis on which we process personal data in these circumstances is our legitimate interest to provide you with a better user experience, and to ensure that our website is kept secure.

The use of any non-essential cookies is subject to your consent. You can also prevent us from using your personal data in this way by using the ‘do not track’ functionality in the internet browser. If you enable such do not track functionality, our website may be less tailored to your needs and preferences.

1.4 For marketing purposes:

1.4.1 Where you have opted in to receive marketing communications from us, we will process your personal data to provide you with marketing communications in line with the preferences you have provided. We may use external marketing agents to help us with such marketing communications.

1.4.2 The legal basis on which we process personal data for marketing purposes is your consent. You are not under any obligation to provide us with your personal data for marketing purposes, and you can withdraw your consent to personal data being processed in this way at any time by contacting us at 0044 (0) 1803 896 847 or team@redpaddleco.com or, where relevant, by following the unsubscribe link in any marketing communication you receive from us. If you do choose to withdraw consent, this will not mean that our processing of personal data before you withdrew your consent was unlawful.

1.5 If our business is sold: We will transfer your personal data to a third party:

1.5.1 in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets (at all times in accordance with all applicable data protection laws);

1.5.2  if Red Paddle or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by Red Paddle about its customers will be one of the assets transferred to the purchaser,
in each case, the legal basis on which we process data in these circumstances is our legitimate interest to ensure our business can be continued by a purchaser. If you object to our use of personal data in this way, the relevant seller or buyer of our business may not be able to provide products to you.

1.6 In certain circumstances we may also need to share your personal data if we are under a duty to disclose or share personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation.
