Aura Light is committed to protecting your personal data to the best of its abilities. However, certain processes (such as managing orders) require us to pass on your data e.g. to business partners and other third parties, in compliance with the applicable laws. Aura Light may offer you a product or service in partnership with another company (business partner). Agreements with these business partners always limit the purposes for which your personal data can be used or passed on, as well as making it mandatory to ensure adequate protection of your personal data. Furthermore, Aura Light can disclose your data to other companies, such as IT and communications service providers, auditors, data management partners and other third parties, if this is necessary for the partnership and therefore for the provision of Aura Light’s services.

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU, Aura Light is required to obtain your permission in cases where it is necessary to pass on your personal data.

What rights do you have?

Once you have sent us your personal data, you are entitled to request that this data be updated, changed, or – if permitted by law – deleted at any time. In order to exercise this right, simply email us at data@auralight.com, indicating the change you wish to make.
