We want you to be sure that your information is safe with us and to understand how we use it to offer you a better user and shopping experience.
1. User registration
When you register, you share your e-mail with the Administrator as a personal information, and you share the username and password you chose with the Administrator. Your e-mail is processed as your personal data only in our internal database for the purpose of managing your user account. This administration is also performed by an external entity – the administrator of our website. Data is therefore transferred to this external entity. But you don’t have to worry about anything. We have ensured that this external entity maintains all legal standards with respect to your personal data and cannot be misused.
If you register for our system solely to use our services, we do not need your explicit consent to process your personal data. This processing of your email is an essential part of managing your profile. If you decide not to use our services in the future and delete the profile on our site, we are obliged to delete this information from all our databases.
If you subscribe to our newsletter, you share your email with us as a personal information. Your e-mail is further processed as your personal data in order to send our commercial communications. These commercial communications will always be related to the content of our eshop www.alpha-cat.org . These can be special offers from our commercial communications and Alpha-cat related products operated by us or other related commercial communications. Your e-mail can be used to send us an offer of our marketing competition or a survey conducted by us. However, it will never be a communication that is not related to the content of our website.
We inform you that the newsletter administration is operated through an external marketing application. This means that your email is forwarded to this external entity. But don’t worry about your personal information. As mentioned above, we’ve made sure that our contractual partner will comply with all legal standards when handling your email, so that it cannot be misused.
We process your e-mail subject to your explicit consent to receive such communications. If you wish to revoke this consent in the future, any e-mail containing such notice will include a link to revoke the consent in its header.

If you choose to participate in our contest, we need your first and last name (including any fictitious nickname), your age to be able to verify that you qualify to participate in this contest and your e-mail to contact them for any winnings in the contest.
If you become a winner, we will continue to contact you to provide contact information to send you the winnings. Of course, when you send your winnings, your personal information is transferred to the carrier. In this case too, we have ensured that the legal standards of protection of your personal data are respected and are not misused.
When filling in the competition form, you always have the opportunity to give us permission to receive commercial messages, which are described in more detail in the previous section “ Newsletter ”. At this point, you can further learn how your personal data will be handled.
