GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

At Hornsleth we always aim to implement the highest standard of security measures to maintain the safety of our costumers personal information. We consider your personal information as sensitive information and it’s therefore very important to us, that it is contained behind highly secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people and partners, who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information highly confidential.

We at Hornsleth Shop have therefore decided to write this separate GDPR description, to help you understand and clarify what information we collect, how we use it, who we work with and what choices you have. Since we’re an internet based company, some of the descriptions below can seem a little technical, but we have sincerely tried our best to explain things in a simple, clear and understandable way. And remember, we always welcome your comments and feedback on this policy, just send us your comments in a mail to and we will get back to you asap.

1. When you provide it to Hornsleth Shop – or give us permission to obtain it.

When you sign up on Hornsleth Shop or buy our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include for instance your name, address, phone number and email address, profile photo, comments, reviews, and any other information you provide us with.

When a costumer purchase a product from our store, we collect all the necessary data to fulfil the order, such as the name, address, email and relevant credit card information, which is used to complete the purchase, and we keep these date in case of:

  • A return problem should occur and we have to solve a costumer related issue. 
  • Or if the costumer choose or return and buy something else from our store, then it will create a much easier, fast and smooth experience for our costumers.

All of our costumers credit card data are strictly protected by our gateway supplier - PayPal - who is a certified PCI Level 1 Service Provider, which is the highest and most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry (read a detailed description in paragraph 

6. Who is our Partner – and what are their security policy).

When you place orders or access your personal information, we always use a secure server.  All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases only accessed as stated above. 

Hornsleth Shop keep our costumer purchase data for at least for 5 years, which according to the Danish tax law, is the required time frame. If a costumer should wish to be removed from our database within this timeframe, we will of course respect it, and all a costumer has to do, is to send us a mail explaining why he or she wish to be removed, and provide us with a full name and address to this mail – – then we will make sure the costumer is removed right away.

But be aware, if a costumer wish to be removed from our database, before the average complaint timeframe runs out, which is 2 years, then it will be very difficult for us to assist and support any complaints or return issues, because after removal of all data, the customer technical doesn’t exist in our system any longer.
