Processing Legal Bases
Sources of Personal Data
Purposes for Collecting Personal Data
Retention of Personal Data
The period for which we retain your personal information varies, depending on the type of personal data and the purpose for which it was collected. The duration is limited to time necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected, in light of any restrictions or deletions you might request, as well as our need to address our legal and regulatory obligations or rights. If we collect your personal data for marketing purposes, we will retain this until you unsubscribe to receiving such marketing communications.
We will actively review the personal data we hold and delete it securely, or in some cases anonymise it, when there is no longer a legal, business, or consumer need for it to be retained. For example, for personal data processed by one of our payment providers, Adyen, the transaction data (including amount paid and payment method) is retained for seven years and is then automatically deleted. We will dispose of your personal data in a secure manner upon your request.
International Data Transfers
Your personal data will be stored on servers located in the EU. Your personal data may be transferred to countries outside of the UK and EU, including Japan, India and the US, for the purposes described in this Policy, for example in order to provide support services. Where we do transfer personal data internationally, we have implemented appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data when it is transferred, for example the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission (EU) and Information Commissioner’s Office (UK). Please contact us using the details below if you would like more information about these safeguards.
Blueair takes the security of your personal data very seriously. We take every effort to protect your personal data from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Our measures include implementing appropriate access controls, investing in the latest information security capabilities to protect the IT environments we leverage, and ensuring we encrypt, pseudonymise and anonymise personal data wherever possible.
Access to your personal data is only permitted among our employees and agents on a need-to-know basis and subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations when processed by third-parties.

Personal Data of Children Under Age 18

Where we rely on consent as the legal basis for processing the personal data, only children aged 13 or over in the UK, or 16 or over in the EU, are able to provide their own consent. For children under 16, we will not process the personal data unless we receive the consent of the child’s parent or guardian.

We put age appropriate safeguards in place where required, for example we may verify your age in order to determine your eligibility for some of our products, services and promotions.
From time to time, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by law (such as coupons, samples, and loyalty programs) in exchange for the collection, retention, or use of certain personal information about you. Each financial incentive related to the collection and use of personal information is based upon our reasonable, good-faith determination of the estimated value of such information to our business, taking into consideration the value of the offer itself and the anticipated revenue generation that may be realized by rewarding brand loyalty and repeat purchases. When you opt into a financial incentive, we will provide information about the specific terms of the financial incentive, such as the categories of personal information required to be disclosed, retained or shared, in exchange for the benefit you may receive. You can opt out of a financial incentive at any time by contacting us at blueair.com.
