7) Site functionalities
Shopsync for Shopify
This website uses the Shopify app "Shopsync" from ShopSync LLC, PO Box 252, Jefferson City, TN 37760, USA.
With the help of ShopSync, the newsletter service "Mailchimp" is synchronised with our Shopify account in such a way that, on the one hand, updates in Mailchimp email lists (such as a newsletter recipient opting out) are also automatically stored on Shopify and, on the other hand, new contact data generated via contracts concluded on Shopify are automatically transferred to the Mailchimp email lists.
In the former case, data processing is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the effective and cross-system maintenance of the files of advertising addressees and the efficient observance of legally significant status changes.
In the second case, exclusively on the basis of the user's express consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO, after a contract has been concluded on Shopify for inclusion in the Mailchimp list, the user's first and last name, address and email address together with transaction-related information (purchase amount, time and date of purchase) are transmitted by ShopSync to Mailchimp.
Data transferred in this way is not stored or retained by ShopSync after synchronisation. All information synced between Shopify and Mailchimp is transmitted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and all information transmitted remains encrypted during the sync process.
The synchronisation process requires the transfer of information over a secure connection to servers hosted by Amazon Web Services in the USA.
