GDPR information for Sellers
This information is provided as general guidance only. You should consult a legal adviser or GDPR professional to get appropriate advice for your business.
For information on Quirky.im’s GDPR policy, please see section 3. GDPR, personal data and marketing information: https://quirky.im/legal-information-what-sellers-on-quirky-im-need-to-comply-with/
Quirky.im Sellers may be Data Processors, as they are will be processing information provided by Quirky.im. The information provided by the Quirky.im system in the Seller’s dashboard is also delivered by email. This contains information about the customer, including their name, address, telephone number and email address. However, it is likely that Quirky.im will not be your only way of selling and if you maintain a client list independent of Quirky.im you are likely to be a Data Controller.
Further information and online registration is via the Isle of Man Information Commissioner: https://www.inforights.im/
NB: It is extremely important to note that you cannot build a contact list from orders received via Quirky.im, as clients are not expressly opting in to your mailing list.
