Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. 

We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.

We share customer information only as described below.

Third-Party Service Providers. We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include analyzing data (Google Analytics), create and show ads on the website (Google AdSense), providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.

Protection of The Hygg and others. We release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce or apply our Terms and conditions and other agreements, or protect the rights, property, or safety of The Hygg, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

With Your Consent. Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when personally identifiable information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

This information is not personally identifiable.

Email Address. The email address you supply to us to receive our email communications will never be rented or sold to a third party.


We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. If transactions are processed on the website, transaction information is transmitted to and from the website in encrypted form using industry-standard SSL connections to help protect such information from interception. We restrict authorized access to your personal information to those who have a legitimate purpose of knowing that information to provide products or services to you and those you have authorized to access such information.

The Hygg follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once The Hygg receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while The Hygg strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. 

We will not sell, distribute, or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

  • Oppose the treatment of your data.
  • Request your portability.
  • Not be subject to automated individual decisions.

Users can exercise all these rights by contacting us through the contact information or our contact page and indicating the reason for their request.

Without preconception to any other administrative appeal or legal action, the User shall have the right to submit a claim to a Control Authority, particularly in the Member State in which he or she has their habitual residence, place of work, or place of the alleged infringement. Suppose you consider that the processing of your personal data is not appropriate to the regulations, as well as in the case of not seeing the exercise of your rights satisfied. The control authority in which the claim was filed will inform the claimant about the claim’s course and result.


Suppose you are habitually located in the European Union. In that case, you have the right to access, rectify, download or erase your information, as well as the right to restrict and object to certain processing of your information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited circumstances.

In such cases, we will cease processing your information unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing or where it is needed for legal reasons.
  • Revoke consent: Where you have previously provided your consent, such as to permit us to process data about you, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your information at any time. For example, you can withdraw your consent by updating your settings. In certain cases, we may continue to process your information after you have withdrawn consent if we have a legal basis to do so or if your withdrawal of consent was limited to certain processing activities.
  • Complain: Should you wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have). You have the right to do so with your local supervisory authority.

Additionally, suppose you are a European resident. In that case, we note that we are processing your information to fulfill contracts we might have with you or otherwise to pursue our legitimate business interests listed above. Additionally, please note that your information will be transferred outside of Europe.

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.

Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA). 

According to the California Online Privacy act, you have the following rights:

  • Know what personal data is being collected.
  • Know whether your personal data is sold or disclosed and to whom.
  • Access to your personal data.
  • Request to delete any personal information about you.
  • Not be discriminated against for exercising their privacy rights.


We are in compliance with the requirements of the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA – US regulation) and the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation – European regulation) regarding the protection of the personal data of minors. We do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. 


If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect. You can change, modify, rectify, and delete your information at any time. Please contact us through our contact page.

To opt-out of The Hygg email, follow the instructions included in the email. Your request should be processed within 48 hours.


Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information The Hygg collects from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether other users or suppliers on The Hygg, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. The Hygg does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. The Hygg is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of other websites on the Internet, even those linked to or from The Hygg site. The Hygg encourages you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.


The Hygg will post modifications by date to this Privacy Policy to inform you of any changes. The Hygg reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time; please review it frequently.


The Hygg regularly reviews its compliance with this Policy. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this Policy or The Hygg treatment of personal information by contacting us.

When we receive formal written complaints, it is The Hygg Policy to contact the complaining User regarding his or her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between The Hygg and an individual.


If you have questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy and the handling and security of your data, please contact us through our contact page or contact us at The Hygg, Lättichstrasse 1a, 6340 Baar, Switzerland,
