Privacy Policy

Data protection at a glance
The following information provides a simple overview about what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Our privacy policy
informs about the policies now in place to protect your personal data under the Data Protection Law 2017 of the Cayman Islands (“DPL”).

Collection and storage of personal data and the nature and purpose of their use
Collection of general data and information when visiting our website. Whenever our website is accessed by visitors, general data and information is automatically collected by our hosting provider and temporarily stored in log files on the server. The following data can be recorded and stored until automatic deletion:
– IP address of the requesting computer
– Date and time of access
– Name of the retrieved file or page (URL)
– Website from which access is made (referrer URL)
– Browser information (web browser used, operating system of your computer, language setting etc.)
The purpose of this data collection is to enable the proper operation and smooth connection of our website and to ensure the comfortable use of our website as well as system security and stability. Under no circumstances will the data collected be used for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. For security reasons, the IP addresses of visitors to our website are stored for a maximum of seven days to identify and ward off attacks and are deleted after this period.

Contact via e-mail
The Balaclava internet site provides an e-mail address which enables direct contact with us. If you contact us by e-mail, the personal data you provide will be used and stored solely for the purpose of processing the conversation. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be deleted as soon as the respective conversation is finished.

Basically, every website uses “session cookies”, as does our website. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Session cookies temporarily save the website visit and are deleted when you close your browser. This type of cookie does not store any information about the visitor.

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

The linked sites were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking without objection. If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately. Furthermore, we would like to point out that we are not responsible for the information on the purpose, scope and further processing or use of your data by third party websites, nor for your rights and options for protecting your privacy.
