Sharing is necessary for the purposes of this privacy statement, as well as sharing with authorized service providers

In addition, we may hand over personal data for processing to authorized service providers providing services to us (including our subcontractors providing data storage, accounting, sales and marketing services) and to service providers providing payment services for the processing of your payments.

When third parties process data on behalf of Fargo Vintage & Designing, Fargo Vintage & Design has taken appropriate contractual and organizational measures to ensure that personal data is processed solely for the purposes stated in this privacy statement and in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and our instructions, in compliance with appropriate confidentiality obligations and security measures.

Please remember that when you hand over your personal data directly to a third party, for example through a link in the Online Store, the processing of personal data is usually based on the third party's own privacy statements and processing principles.

For legal reasons

We may disclose personal information to third parties outside the Fargo Vintage & Designing organization if we reasonably believe that access to and use of the personal information is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, and/or court order; (ii) to detect, prevent and deal with fraud, crime or information security issues or technical problems; and/or (iii) to protect the interests or property of Fargo Vintage & Design or the Users, or to ensure safety or to protect the public interest in accordance with the law.

We may disclose personal information to third parties outside the Fargo Vintage & Design organization for reasons other than those mentioned above when we have your express consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time free of charge by contacting us.


Fargo Vintage & Design does not store personal data longer than the maximum time allowed by law and only as long as it is necessary to provide the Online Store or part of it. The retention period depends on the nature of the data and the purpose of the processing. The maximum storage period may therefore vary on a case-by-case basis.

We delete certain User Data related to your user account after you delete your user account. However, we retain some necessary personal data, such as contact and payment data and communication data as long as the law requires us to do so or we have a legitimate reason to retain the data, for example due to the processing of claims, accounting obligations, internal reporting, dispute resolution or other legal action.

We also store Users' email addresses for direct marketing purposes for the time being. If the User later prohibits the sending of electronic direct marketing, we will delete other information related to the electronic direct marketing order, but we will retain the information that the User has refused electronic direct marketing so that we can make sure that the prohibition is followed.


The right to access information

You have the right to access the personal data we process about you. You can see certain information about you through your Verkkokaupa user account or by asking us for a copy of the personal information we have collected about you.

The right to withdraw consent

If the processing is based on the User's consent, the User can withdraw the consent at any time free of charge. Withdrawing consent may limit the User's ability to use the Online Store. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of the processing of personal data processed before the withdrawal.

The right to demand correction of information

You have the right to demand that we correct or complete incorrect or outdated personal data we have stored by contacting us.

The right to demand deletion of information

You can ask us to remove your personal data from our systems. We will carry out the measures according to the request, if we do not have a legitimate reason not to delete the information.

The right to limit the processing of information

You can ask us to limit the processing of your personal data, for example, when your deletion, correction or objection requests are being processed and/or when we have no legitimate grounds to process your data. However, this may limit your opportunities to use the Online Store.
