SECTION 3 – What Personal Data We Collect
What data do we process and why?
The personal data that we process is that which you provide to us when you conclude an order and purchase goods, and that we collect as you browse or use the services offered on 4wildlife.com.

- provide you with the services of 4wildlife.com such as subscription to the newsletter;
- allow registration to the site and use of services reserved for registered users;
- manage your requests forwarded to our Customer Service.
In the aforementioned cases, the processing of your personal data is legitimate as it is necessary to execute an agreement with you or to provide you with the service that you have specifically requested.

The latter have been evaluated and chosen by us for their proven reliability and competence. Some of these subjects may also be based in non-EU countries and, in these cases, the transfer of your personal data in these countries is carried out in compliance with the guarantees provided by law.

We will only process your personal data if one of the following conditions envisaged in the current regulations is satisfied: a) to complete and execute a contract with you. When we process your data in order to complete and execute a purchase contract with you, we take care to use solely the minimum information needed for that purpose.
