Privacy Policy

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and strictly in accordance with the applicable statutory data protection regulations. Disclosure of personal data may be necessary to enable the use of certain areas and functions of our platform. When we collect personal data (such as name, address or email addresses), we always do so on a voluntary basis (where possible). We will not disclose your data to third parties unless the law permits or you give your expressed consent. Please be aware that there may be security gaps when data is transmitted via the Internet (e.g. by email communication). This is why unfortunately absolute protection of data against access by third-parties is impossible.

A. Data that we collect

We collect data to enable the conclusion and execution of sales contracts and processes related thereto (e.g. after-sale service, customer accounts) on our stage. We collect, store and process this data.

We also prepare logs to document your visit to our stage. The logs basically comprise the IP address currently used by your terminal, the date and time of your visit, the browser type, and the operating system used on your terminal as well as the websites you visit. Usually we are unable and also do not want to identify you.

B. How we use and pass on data

We use the personal data you disclose to us to enable the initiation and execution of sales contracts with the designers. If you want to shop on our stage, you are required to create a client account.

In addition, the stage offers a Social Square in which you can participate. For such purpose, you may create a publicly visible Social Square profile. Within the Social Square, you may create publicly visible posts, make comments and follow other users.

We will only use the data for other purposes if you have been duly instructed beforehand and have given prior consent to the use or if statutory exemption permits us to use the data otherwise.

We pass on and disclose your data to the associated designers if and to the extent this is required for the initiation and conclusion of the sales contract with the relevant designer.

To enable payment handling, we disclose your payment details to the responsible payment service providers: MANGOPAY, 59 boulevard Royal L-2449 Luxembourg.

In addition, for the purposes of delivery of the goods, your address data is made available to the logistics service provider chosen by the designer.

If you purchase goods via our style magazine or fashion blog or style consulting service, both the relevant designer and the Style Influencer will be informed about this interrelation.

We assure you that your personal data will not otherwise be disclosed to third parties unless we are obliged by law to do so or you have given prior consent to the disclosure.

If and to the extent we engage service providers to execute processing, we commit them by contractual agreement to compliance with the applicable data protection regulations and requirements.

C. Consent and revocation

You may at any time require the deletion of personal data you provided to us. Deletion of certain data, for example data required for invoicing or accounting purposes, is forbidden by law; this is why your revocation of consent will not affect this data.

D. How long we store data

We only store data which you have provided to us until the purpose of their disclosure has been achieved. If there are retention periods to be observed under commercial or tax law, the term of storage for certain data may be up to 10 years.

E. Client account and Social Square profile

When you open a client account, you thereby consent to permanent storage of your master data such as your name, address, email address, bank details and access data (username, password). This enables you, as a recurring client to place orders by means of your access data without being required to enter your master data time and again. You may create a Social Square profile within your client account. The Social Square account is linked to the client account and the basic settings of this Social Square account contain the user name which you have provided as well as information on whom you follow, who follows you and which posts you have published. You may also add a profile photo and additional information to your profile.

F. Newsletters

If you subscribe to the newsletter, you give your consent to use of your email address for the transmission of regular newsletters. For such purpose, we will ask you to give the following consent:

„[ ] I hereby subscribe to the tff. newsletter (I may unsubcribe at any time).“

The newsletters are transmitted by no-one else but us. You may revoke your consent to receive newsletters at any time. You will find an unsubscription link in every newsletter by which you can revoke your consent.

If you subscribe to StyleNews, you give your consent that Style Influencers may send you regular emails that contain suggestions for new styles. For such purpose, we will ask you to give the following consent:

„[ ] I hereby subscribe to StyleNews (I may unsubcribe at any time).“

The StyleNews are transmitted by no-one else but the Style Influencers associated to the stage. You may revoke your consent to receive StyleNews at any time. You will find an unsubscription link in every StyleNews message by which you can revoke your consent.

The stage uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how you use the site.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

Please note that this website initializes Google Analytics with the additional setting „_anonymizeIp()“. This guarantees strictly anonymized storage of IP addresses which renders immediate identification of the user by the stored data impossible.

I. Social Plugins

We use plug-ins from third-party providers on the stage. This helps you tell your friends whether you like the services provided on our website or make them aware of certain contents or share contents. The plug-ins are marked by the logo of the relevant third-party provider or a „like“ add-on. Plug-ins enable personal data to be transmitted to third-party providers if you have registered and are logged in there.

When you visit our stage, your data is transmitted to third-party providers in the same way as if you directly visited their websites, maybe even if you have not registered as a member there and do not click the plug-in on our sites. However, in this case, the third-party provider is unable to immediately identify you e.g. by your IP address; this would only be possible by obtaining appropriate information from your provider. We are not informed by third-party providers about which data is collected, stored or processed there; however, the following data may be transmitted:

  • IP address
  • Your user ID if you have registered with the third-party provider and are logged in
    there;
  • Date and time of your visit
  • Browser version and operating system that you use, screen resolution - Visitors’ origin (referrer) if you have followed a link
  • Installed plug-ins such as Flash or Adobe Reader
  • URL of our website where the plug-in is integrated.

The data protection regulations of the third-party providers will apply in addition.
