  • Why this privacy declaration?

Every person who visits the Website (hereinafter the “Visitor“) and every person who uses our services (hereinafter the “Customer“) almost inevitably discloses certain personal data. These personal data constitute information that allows us to identify you as a natural person, regardless of whether we actually do this. You are identifiable as soon as it is possible to create a direct or indirect link between one or more personal data and you as a natural person. The Visitor and the Customer are hereinafter also referred to collectively as the “Data Subject“.

We use and process your personal data in accordance with the GDPR and other relevant legal provisions. Any reference in this Privacy Statement to the GDPR is a reference to the Regulation of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (General Data Protection Regulation).

Through this Privacy Declaration, every Data Subject is informed of the processing activities that DUROC D’OLIVES may carry out with their personal data. DUROC D’OLIVES reserves the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time. Any substantial modification will be clearly communicated to the Data Subject. We advise the Data Subject to consult this document regularly.


  • Who processes your personal data?

2.1. Controller

DUROC D’OLIVES alone or in cooperation with others determines which personal data are collected, as well as the purpose and means of processing these personal data. Consequently, DUROC D’OLIVES is a “controller” within the meaning of the GDPR.

DUROC D’OLIVES uses carefully selected “data processors” to process the visitors’ and customers’ personal details. A processor is a natural or legal person who processes personal data at the request of or on behalf of the controller. The processor is obliged to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal data. The processor shall always act in accordance with the instructions of the controller.

  • Companies we engage for communication purposes (e.g. live chat on the website);
  • Companies we engaged for logistical purposes (e.g. order picking, delivery, etc.);
  • Companies we engage for analytical purposes;
  • Companies we engage for payment purposes.

In order to ensure optimum protection of the Data Subjects’ personal data, DUROC D’OLIVES has entered into the necessary contractual arrangements with the above-mentioned data processors to ensure that they apply the same high standards as DUROC D’OLIVES.

How much and which personal data DUROC D’OLIVES collects about you depends on your use of the Website and/or our services. The collection of personal data is further increased by the more intensive use of our Website and our services. In general, Customers will disclose more personal data than Visitors.

  • For what purposes are your personal data used?

The processing of your personal data is essential for the proper functioning of the Website and the services associated with it. The collection of personal data is further expanded as the Data Subject makes more intensive use of our Website and our services.

The processing is done exclusively for the following well-defined purposes:

We also use cookies to recognise (the IP address of) Visitors and to provide them with a personalised user experience, to remember their technical choices and to detect and correct any errors on the Website. Consult our Cookie Policy for more information on how we use cookies.

When you visit the Website, some data is collected for statistical purposes. Such data are necessary to optimise the use of our Website.

  • Who receives your personal data?

Your personal data will be processed exclusively for internal use within DUROC D’OLIVES.
