  1. Email contact

In compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from the EU, we have now restricted the Allow Contact feature to function on an "opt-in" basis only.  This means that the "Allow Contact" box is unticked by default, requiring the customer to tick the box if they wish to receive unsolicited email correspondence.

A Vida may contact registered customers occasionally by email to inform you of new arrivals and promotions. You can conveniently manage your registration for the receipt of emails from A Vida in the "My Account" area. Simply enter your email address in the field provided and then click on "Save changes". 

If you no longer wish to receive emails from A Vida, simply click on the "Unsubscribe" link that you find at the end of each email. Alternatively, you can unsubscribe in the "My Account" area of our website.

  1. Social Plug-ins

A Vida uses so-called social plug-ins (in the following, plug-ins) of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google+, Pinterest or Instagram. 

When you visit our websites these plug-ins are deactivated by default, i.e. without your intervention they will not send any data to third parties. Before you are able to use these plug-ins, you must activate them by clicking on them. They then remain active until you deactivate them again or delete your cookies. After their activation, a direct link to the server of the respective social network is established. The contents of the plug-in are then transmitted from the social network directly to your browser and incorporated in the website by it. 

Please note that we have no influence on the extent of the data retrieved by the social networks with their plug-ins. For information on purpose and extent of the data retrieval by the social network concerned and about the rights and settings possibilities for the protection of your private sphere, please refer to the data protection information provided by the social network in question. 

After activation of a plug-in, the social network can retrieve data, independently of whether you interact with the plug-in or not. If you are logged on to a social network, the network can assign your visit to the A Vida website to your user account. 

If you are a member of a social network and do not wish it to combine data retrieved from your visit to our websites with your membership data, you must log out from the social network concerned before activating the plug-ins.
