When you shop with a store, SID passes on information about your age, gender, postal code as well as the amount spent, the vGBP paid to you and the time of the transaction.

  2. Enigmatic Smile Ltd, which calculates the vGBP, stores card data and other collected personal data and sends service messages to users.
  1. SID has concluded data processing agreements with its data processors.
