Data Protection Declaration

1. General
Shwetha Design UG (haftungsbeschränkt) (hereafter SHWETHA) takes protecting your personal data and privacy very seriously. This means that SWETHA is obliged to handle the information you provide with great responsibility and with the utmost of care. This also applies when it comes to working with partners and third parties. However, SHWETHA does not accept any liability for third parties unless otherwise declared.
To make sure that you are fully aware of how your personal data is collected and used on our website, please read the following information.

2. Data Protection Declaration and Data Transfer
We only use your inventory data to process your order. All customer data is saved, assessed and processed in accordance with the relevant provisions of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telecommunications Act (TMG). We will never pass your personal data, including your address and email address, to third parties without your express permission, and such permission can be revoked at any time. Exceptions to this include our service partners that need some personal data in order to process your order (e.g. shipping companies to deliver your order, or the bank/company that processes your transfer). In this case, only the minimum required data will be passed on. All personal data is treated strictly confidential. A credit check or exchange of correspondence and credit rating data may be carried out with relevant credit assessment companies within the realms of legal admissibility and taking into account your interests worthy of protection.
The use of your personal data for our own regular marketing purposes and for similar products and services is not excluded. You can revoke permission for this kind of use at any time without incurring any additional costs beyond transmission costs according to the usual tariffs.

3. Cookies
Among other uses, our website uses “cookies”, which are designed to make our website overall more user-friendly, effective and safer – for example when it comes to speed up navigation on our platform. In addition, cookies enable us to measure about the frequency of page views and general navigation. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. We point out that some of these cookies are transferred from our server to your computer system, this is mostly dealing with so-called “session cookies”. “Session cookies” are characterized by the fact that they are automatically deleted after the browser session from your hard drive. Other cookies remain on your computer system and allow us to recognize your computer system during your next visit (so-called „persistent cookies“). Of course you can reject cookies at any time if your browser permits.

4. Use of Facebook plug-ins
On our website we use Social Plugins („Plugins“) of the Social Network Facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave. Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA („Facebook“). Each access of one of our Website pages from our own Website containing this plug-in, will cause your browser to build a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The content of the plug-in is transferred by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated by the latter to the website.When accessed, Facebook receives the information that someone has accessed the corresponding page of our Website. If at this moment you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can associate the visit to your Facebook account, even if you have not clicked on, for example the “Like” button. If you click on the “Like-Button”, the corresponding information is sent from your browser directly to Facebook and saved there. In addition, the information that you have visited our Website will be sent to Facebook, regardless of whether one of the plug-ins is operated or not.

To prevent the transmission and storage of personal data about you and your surfing behaviour by Facebook, through our website, please log off Facebook before you visit our website. Information about the purpose and extent of the data collected and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your setting options to protect your private sphere can be found in the data protection guidelines of Facebook.

Please note that we, as the site operator, are not informed of the content of transferred data or its use by Facebook.

5. Use of Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA, (hereafter ‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files that are saved on your computer that facilitate an analysis of your use of this website. The information gathered by the cookies about your website use (including your IP address) will be transferred to a Google server in the USA, and saved there. Google shall use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create website activity reports for the website operator, and to carry out further services relating to internet use. Google will also transfer this information to third parties insofar as is legally required or insofar as the third party will process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never link your IP address with other Google data.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by using certain browser software settings; however, we must inform you that you may not be able to use all website functions if you do so.

Alternatively, you can add the Google Analytics deactivation add-on (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) if this is available for your browser.

Please note that this website uses Google Analytics with IP anonymisation so that IP addresses are only processed in a shortened form to prevent links with individual people.

6. Use of the Google +1 button
On our website, we use the +1 button for the Google+ (Google Plus) social network provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA, (hereafter ‘Google’).
Each time you visit one of our pages with a +1 button, the +1 button makes sure your browser downloads the version that is most suited to your browser from a Google server. The Google server will be informed which exact page of our website you are visiting. Google will log your browser history when showing a +1 button for up to two weeks for purposes of system maintenance and troubleshooting. There will be no further evaluation of your visit to one of our pages with a +1 button.

If you use the +1 button when logged into Google+ (Google Plus), Google will collect information about your recommending URL, your IP address and other browser-related information via your Google profile so that your +1 recommendation can be saved and made publicly available. Your +1 recommendations can be displayed along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile (as +1 tab in your Google profile) or other places on websites and adverts on the internet.
