By joining the GUILD newsletter, client loyalty program and/or making a purchase on the GUILD website or on-site store, or otherwise providing his/her details through the GUILD website or through any other online channel (like Facebook, Instagram), the client gives consent to the processing of his/her personal data.

The data communication between the client and the banks and the card payment centre is encrypted, which ensures the security of the client’s personal data and bank details. GUILD does not have access to the client’s confidential bank and payment card details.
How we use information you have provided?
If you provide us your personal data, we will use this information based on our legitimate interest to keep you informed of our special events and promotions, to register you with our website, to administer our website services, to process any orders you may place online, to make purchase analyses, and/or to serve the client loyalty program, all as relevant. Otherwise, we may use the information you provide to us only to review our performance and to improve our services to you, or to communicate with you about your order if you have placed an online order.
We will send you announcements or communications by e-mail only if you give us your permission to do so by either giving your e-mail address and respective permission in any of our on-site stores, through the GUILD website or through any other online channel (like Facebook, Instagram). In addition, we may use information about your product interests and purchases from us and our affiliates, to help us improve our site design and your online and in-store shopping experiences.
We may contact you, subject to the choices you have made, via e-mail, postal mail, or telephone, to conduct market research and learn more about how we can improve our product offerings. To serve you better, we may combine information you give us and information about your product interest and purchases with information from third parties, including demographic information and information that is publicly available. GUILD has the right to query, analyse, sort, and take samples of personal data in the GUILD database.
Do we share your information with others?
GUILD may authorise other legal entities (authorised processors) to process personal data, provided that an agreement has been entered with such a processor under which the processor is required to keep the personal data processed as confidential and to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the requirements provided by law.
In order to maintain the GUILD website, to manage the GUILD database, to distribute e-mails and to provide client communications, we contract with selected third parties. Such authorised processors are cash register software service providers, software development partners, logistics service providers and marketing service providers.
As necessary, the personal information you provide to us may be processed by these third parties, solely on GUILD’s behalf, but we do not authorise any of these service providers to make any other use of your information. We do not otherwise disclose your information to third parties, unless we are required to do so by law or in connection with a legal claim or proceeding. The authorised processors are also companies belonging to the same consolidation group with GUILD and their employees who process personal data for the performance of their duties.
