Protecting Your Personal Data

To prevent unauthorized access, we maintain reasonable physical, electronic and organizational procedures to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure or access. To protect credit card transactions, Shishabox currently uses Secure Socket Layer technology to encrypt credit card information during transit.

How We Use the Information We Collect 

General Use: We use Personal Data and other information collected through the Site to (a) register you with the Site and create your user account, (b) provide you with the requested services (mainly to process and confirm your order) after verifying your credentials, (c) provide you with information about our services on the Site or on other websites and to communicate with you to the extent necessary to provide such requested services, (d) build features that will make the services available on the Site easier to use, (e) for an improved user experience, internal training and general optimization purposes, (f) for the detection and prevention of fraud and other illegal or unwanted activities or (g) contact you in case there is an issue with your order. This includes faster purchase requests, better customer support and timely notice of new services and special offers.

Marketing Activities & Reminders: We also use your information for marketing activities, as permitted by law. For example: When you make an order with us, set up a user account, complete or enter details into a purchase form, or provide us with the contact details we may use your contact information to send you news of products and services relevant and useful. With your consent – if consent is required under local law – we may also send you other regular newsletters by email. You can opt-out, or unsubscribe, from marketing communications at any time using the "Unsubscribe" link in each newsletter or communication, or you can administer your subscriptions through your account (if you've created one).

Based on the information you share with us, individualized offers may be shown to you on the Site, in mobile apps, or on third-party websites, including social media sites. These might be offers that you can order directly on the Site or third-party offers or products we think you might find interesting.

If you have not finalized an order online, we may send you a reminder to complete your order. We believe that this additional service is useful to you because it allows you to carry on with an order without having to search for the items again or fill in all the details from scratch.

Please note that the confirmation emails and text messages sent after your order, as well as the review emails sent after you receive your order, are not marketing messages. These messages are part of your order process. Respectively, they contain information for you to check your order, and tools to optionally rate the items your purchased after you receive them. You will continue to receive them, even if you have opted out of our marketing messages.
