During the purchasing process, you will be presented with the option to set up a personal Calvin Klein account. If you choose to do so, we will ask for additional information, such as setting up a personal password, date of birth and subscriptions to commercial communications. We only use your data for this purpose if you have given your consent to set up a personal account.
In our store, depending on whether you are a consumer, we collect your name, address and other relevant personal details if this is needed to comply by local fiscal and legal requirements. We may need this information to be able to provide you with a refund or a fiscal receipt (VAT receipt). If you have opted in to receive an e-receipt, we will process your e-mail address. This data is collected via our point of sale terminal in the store.
In addition, some of our stores offer the opportunity to collect or return your items ordered online in one of our selected stores. In order to provide these services to you we will process your personal data such as your email address to send you information about your order. For example, when your order is ready to be collected. Furthermore, our store associates will register whether you have collected or returned an order.

The CCTV system helps us to secure and protect our stores, our store associates and customers, and products located or stored on store premises. The CCTV system also helps us to prevent, detect and investigate theft of our products or threats to the safety of our store associates or customers.
We process the CCTV footage to serve our legitimate business interest to protect our store premises and store associates, and to prevent, detect, and investigate incidents. The CCTV footage is generally kept for a maximum of 30 days from the time of recording before it is automatically overwritten or deleted, unless an incident has been recorded. In such cases, such footage may be kept until the incident has been dealt with or resolved, or longer as required or allowed under applicable laws.
2.1.3. Customer service and other requests
We also collect data to answer your queries on the phone, via post, via email or online via a chatbot or online form or via live-chat functionality.

This is called targeted advertising. The more successful we are in targeted advertising, the higher the (prospective) Customer satisfaction.
To be able to show you targeted advertisements, we can also match your data profile with Customers that have a similar profile.
In order to support our targeted advertising we make use of information that is collected on how our Customers respond to our products, brand and advertisements. This information is collected from different sources available to us offline, online and mobile, for instance when you are visiting our website. Next to that it is enriched with information collected by others, such as data relating to the local weather. Based on that information, our marketing teams find and define relevant segments of online audiences to direct marketing campaigns at. These segments also help us decide how to best reach our Customers, within and beyond Calvin Klein’s digital channels. If your digital marketing profile falls within such a segment you will probably receive our advertising tailored to the interests of the segment we placed you in on Meta, Google properties, online properties of so-called affiliate parties and other online and offline locations and materials, which is targeted advertising.
We may also collect data from third party vendors, such as Meta or Google or other online and social media actors that have collected data about you to use in relation to personalized targeted advertising, and we may share your data profile with third parties, such as Meta and Google or other online and social media actors, for retargeting by showing you a targeted advertisement on a third-party website that is linked to an event on our website, for example a specific purchase that was abandoned in the shopping cart.
