Data Processing Position
The resonsible position for data processing is Sophora Media Ltd - 85 Great Portland Street - Londra W1W 7LT – United Kingdom.
We only make use of your data in the processing of your order. Customer data is stored and processed according to the Data Protection Act 1998 (and any law which replaces it, including the new UK Data Protection Bill) (the “DPA”) and the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, (the “GDPR”).
You have the right, at any time, to free information, authorization, deletion or suspension of your personal data. Please contact us at VIPauction or send us your enquiry by post or fax. Deletion requests cannot always be honoured because of trading and taxation storage limit rules of up to 10 years. According to the Data Protection Act 1998, the suspension of data is valid in such cases.
Disclosure of data to third parties
We do not provide your personal data (including home address or e-mail address) to third parties without your expressed and at any time revocable permission. Exceptions are only made for our service partners who require such data in order to complete an order process (eg. a transport company responsible for shipping and a credit institute responsible for payment). In this case, transferred data is reduced to a minimum.
