Further, we will use the information you provide to administer your account with us; verify and carry out financial transactions in relation to payments you make online; audit the downloading of data from our website; improve the layout and/or content of the pages of our website and customise them for users; identify visitors on our website; carry out research on our users’ demographics; send you information we think you may find useful or which you have requested from us, including information about our products and services, provided you have indicated that you have not objected to being contacted for these purposes. Subject to obtaining your consent we may contact you by email with details of other products and services. If you prefer not to receive any marketing communications from us, you can opt out at any time.
We may pass your name and address on to a third party in order to make delivery of the product to you (for example to our courier or supplier).

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer if you agree. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.
Cookies are designed to assist your computer or device to remember something you have done within that website e.g. remembering that you have logged in, or which products you have looked at.
The cookies we use are ‘analytical’ cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
There are also specific cookies related to knowing whether a user is logged in or not. These are known as authentication cookies. Authentication cookies are important for our website to know what information to show you, or if it needs to ask you to log in.
Cookies may be stored by your browser from anywhere between a single browsing session to a longer period of time:
• Session cookies – these only last for the duration of your browsing session on the website. Your web browser would normally delete these when you close the browser.
• Persistent cookies – these last longer than the browser session. For example if you log into our website and then return to the website some days later, the website knows who you are and displays a welcome message to you. Persistent cookies enable this to happen.
• First party cookies – these are set by the Shingyo domain (or sub-domain) in your web browser.
• Third party cookies – these are set by a different domain to that of the website you are looking at. Third party cookies are used for a variety of reasons, mainly to track the products and services you are interested in. For example, we use a google analytics cookie which helps google tell us how visitors arrive at and interact with our site.
Shingyo use all of the above cookies on this website. But the cookies do not contain any confidential information such as your address, telephone number or credit card details.
Managing your cookies
You have different options to manage the cookies on your computer or device. You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies from being accepted, or, depending on which browser you are using, you might be able to receive an alert when a website is trying to place one on your browser. With most browsers you can allow first party cookies to be set but refuse third party cookies.
If you change your cookie preferences, you will still be able to browse around our site but some functions may not work as normal.
Your browsers ‘help’ menu should tell you how to block cookies or change your cookie settings. You can delete cookies stored in your browser by using a function in your browser. Whilst this does not mean you won’t collect cookies in the future, it gives you freedom to delete your cookies after you have been online. This function is often known as ‘clearing cookies’. Of course, clearing your cookies on one browser of one device does not automatically clear them on another.

Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge
Following an order, the Trusted Shops Trustbadge is incorporated into this web page in order to display our Trusted Shops trustmark for buyers and the eventually collected reviews, as well as the Trusted Shops product offer.
In balancing the various interests, this serves to safeguard our legitimate prevailing interests in an optimised marketing of our offer. The trustbadge and the services advertised are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Köln.
Whenever a trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically stores a so-called server log file which contains, for example, your IP address, the date and time of retrieval, the data volume transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the retrieval. This access data will not be evaluated and will be automatically overwritten seven days after your visit to the page.
Other personal information will only be transferred to Trusted Shops if you decide, after completing an order, to use Trusted Shops products or have already registered for their use. In this case, the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.
