If you create an account or have made a purchase, we can assign you to an audience ('audience') based on your e-mail address that we provide to a channel to show you an advertisement or to ensure that that ad is not shown. Your e-mail address is always 'hashed', which means that it is not readable but can be used for automated processing. We do this, for example, if you have shown interest in a product on our website, but you have not (yet) purchased it, or if you have purchased a specific product several times.

AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING AND PROFILING
By analyzing your behavior on the site, we are able to tailor the website to your personal preferences. This also involves profiling. Profiling is any form of automated data processing in which we analyze certain personal aspects of you to, among other things, predict your personal preferences and interests. We only use your click behavior (products viewed), purchase history and possibly account data to create generic customer patterns. We do not create a separate user profile for you. However, some parts of the website (recommended products) and the content of the newsletter are tailored to your personal preferences through the use of the generic customer patterns.
SHARING OF PERSONAL DATA WITH THIRD PARTIES
Apex Nutrition will not sell your personal information to third parties and will only make it available to third parties that are involved in processing your order. Think, for example, of PostNL for the delivery of parcels in the Netherlands. We may also share your data with partners who help us with:
supporting our customer service;
supporting our advertising and marketing campaigns;
supporting customer research and obtaining ratings and reviews;
providing financial services, such as payment services, collection agencies and credit reference agencies.
Our employees and third parties engaged by us are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your data. We do not allow third parties to use your personal data for their own purposes; we only authorize third parties to process your data for specific purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
Sometimes we have to pass on personal data to the government. This can first of all occur if certain government institutions need this information for the performance of their duties, such as the tax authorities. The police or judicial authorities may also need certain information in the event of fraud or abuse. Finally, certain supervisors may have access to personal data in the context of an investigation.
SEE, MODIFY, OR DELETE DATA
You have the right to view, correct or delete your personal data. In addition, you have the right to withdraw any consent to the data processing or to object to the processing of your personal data.

HOW IS YOUR DATA SECURE?

By means of a strict access control, we ensure that your personal data is only accessible to employees for whom it is necessary that they work with it.
