3. Customer's Privacy
Both ARESKEE LTD and our various Sellers, process the customers' personal information (i.e. buyer's name, email address, and shipping address). Sellers can only access the details of customers who placed an order with them, or have signed up for a “Back in Stock” notification on any of the store’s products. According to the EU law, ARESKEE LTD and its various stores are considered separate and independent data controllers of buyers’ personal information under the prevailing EU legislation. This means that each party is responsible for the personal information it processes in providing the Services. For example, if a store, not ARESKEE LTD, discloses to a 3 rd party a buyer’s name or any other personal information when or after fulfilling an order for the buyer, or if the store uses the customer’s information for any reason other than fulfilling the buyer’s order, then the seller, not ARESKEE, may be legally held responsible for the unauthorised disclosure or misuse of the buyer’s information.
If, however, for whatever reason ARESKEE LTD and any of its stores are found to be joint data controllers of buyers’ personal information, and if ARESKEE LTD is sued, fined, or otherwise incurs expenses and or damages because of something that the Seller did as a joint data controller of buyer personal information, you agree to indemnify ARESKEE LTD for the expenses /damages it occurs in connection with your processing of buyer personal information. See "Section 9. Indemnification" (or What Happens If You Get Us Sued) below for more information about your indemnification obligations to ARESKEE LTD.
