This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or register a product on monde-selection.com (the “Site”).

Monde Selection SPRL is committed to protect your privacy and takes its responsibilities regarding the security of customer personal information very seriously. For more detailed information about privacy legislation, please do not hesitate to read the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of Personal Information and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC).

Personal information we collect

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information”.

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
– “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
– “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
– “Web beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

Additionally when you register a product or attempt to register a product through the Site, we collect certain information about you and your company, including contact names, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers), email address, position, phone number and product information. We refer to this information as “Registration Information”.

Finally, when you contact our customer service or anyone of the Monde Selection staff, we may keep a record of that correspondence and collect the necessary information to classify your question, respond to it and, if applicable, investigate any breach of this Policy.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Registration Information.

How do we use your personal information?

We use the Registration Information that we collect generally to operate the evaluation on any product registered through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or registration confirmations).

– Screen our registration for potential risk or fraud; and
– When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
– Publish the results of the Awarded products Online and in our Annual product palmares.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
