Using Personal Information
We use your personal Information to provide our services to you, which includes: offering products for sale, processing payments, shipping and fulfillment of your order, and keeping you up to date on new products, services, and offers.
Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), if you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we process your personal information under the following lawful bases:
- Your consent;
- The performance of the contract between you and the Site;
- Compliance with our legal obligations;
- To protect your vital interests;

If you are a resident of the EEA, you have the right to object to processing based solely on automated decision-making (which includes profiling), when that decision-making has a legal effect on you or otherwise significantly affects you.
We do not engage in fully automated decision-making that has a legal or otherwise significant effect using customer data.
Our processor Shopify uses limited automated decision-making to prevent fraud that does not have a legal or otherwise significant effect on you.
Services that include elements of automated decision-making include:

Visitors and customers of Sweetspot have the opportunity to register for a newsletter with regular advertising information. In addition to entering the e-mail address, the subscription to the newsletter must be confirmed in a confirmation e-mail so that abusive registration with a third-party e-mail address is not possible (legal basis according to DSGVO, Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter a DSGVO) .
The user can opt out of receiving advertising with future effect at any time. A successful registration for the newsletter can also be revoked at any time via the link in each newsletter.
Emails based on transactions and direct mail
We use your e-mail address, which we received as part of the sale of a product or service. This applies to sending you electronic advertisements for your own goods or services that are similar to those you have already purchased from us. This only occurs if you have not objected to this use. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR from our interest in direct advertising.
The user can opt out of receiving advertising with future effect at any time. A waiver can also be declared at any time via the corresponding links in each of our emails.
Our website uses the visitor action pixel from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") to measure and optimize order completions.
In this way, the behavior of site visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of the Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized.
The data collected is anonymous to us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines. This enables Facebook to place advertisements on Facebook pages and outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.
You will find further information on protecting your privacy in Facebook's data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
You can also disable the “Custom Audiences” remarketing feature in the Ads Settings section at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. To do this, you must be logged in to Facebook.
If you do not have a Facebook account, you can deactivate usage-based advertising from Facebook on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.
