This Policy applies to all personal data collected, processed, and stored by Walzonprep in relation to its staff, suppliers, and service recipients in the course of its activities, as defined in GDPR and CCPA, and other relevant laws.

As the controller, Walzonprep has established a range of technical and organizational strategies to maximize the protection of personal data processed via our website. However, it is acknowledged that Internet-based data transfers can have inherent security risks, thus absolute protection cannot be assured. Therefore, data subjects are encouraged to transmit personal data through alternative methods, such as by phone, if preferred.


The data protection declaration of Walzonprep is formulated utilizing terms designated by the European legislator for the enactment of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our aim is to make this declaration clear and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To achieve this goal, we will first clarify the terminology employed.

In this data protection declaration, among others, we use the following terms:

1.1) Personal data

Personal data refers to any information related to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable individual is someone who can be identified, directly or indirectly, especially by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that person.

1.2) Data subject

The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

1.3) Processing

Processing encompasses any action or series of actions performed on personal data or sets of personal data, with or without automated means. This includes collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure, or destruction.

1.4) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing involves marking stored personal data to limit their processing in the future.

1.5) Profiling

Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data that involves using personal data to assess certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, particularly to analyze or predict factors such as that individual's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location, or movements.

1.6) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in a way that the data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is stored separately and is safeguarded by technical and organizational measures to ensure the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

1.7) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

The controller or the entity responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which, alone or in conjunction with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of such processing are defined by Union or Member State law, the controller or specific criteria for its nomination may be provided by Union or Member State law.

1.8) Processor

A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

1.9) Recipient

A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or another body to which personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities that may receive personal data within the scope of a specific inquiry under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities must comply with the applicable data protection rules according to the processing purposes.

1.10) Third Party

A third party is an entity distinct from the data subject, controller, processor, and individuals authorized to process personal data under the direct oversight of the controller or processor. This encompasses any natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or body apart from those previously mentioned entities.

1.11) Consent

Consent is the data subject's voluntary, precise, informed, and unequivocal expression of preference, through which the individual signifies acceptance of the processing of personal data concerning him or her. This can be demonstrated either through a declarative statement or a clear affirmative action.

2) Controller's Name and Contact Information

The controller, as defined under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), relevant data protection legislation within the European Union member states, and other data protection directives, is: Nikita Loktev, Walzon LLC, located at 941 Avenue N Suite A.

3) Cookies

The web pages of Walzonprep utilize cookies, which are text files placed on a computer system via an internet browser.

Cookies are widely used across many internet sites and servers. They often include a unique identifier known as a cookie ID, which is a series of characters allowing internet pages and servers to recognize the specific internet browser storing the cookie. This identification enables the differentiation of the user's browser among others that hold different cookies, facilitating recognition and individual treatment.

Walzonprep employs cookies to offer more user-friendly services on this website, enhancing the browsing experience in ways that would not be feasible without cookies.

Cookies serve to tailor the information and offerings on our website in a user-centric manner. They enable us to identify users of our site, aiming to simplify the usage of our web services for them. For example, website visitors using cookies don't need to re-enter login details every time they visit, as this information is managed by the site, and the cookie is saved on the user’s device. Another instance is the maintenance of a shopping cart in an e-commerce site, where the site remembers the items a customer added to their cart via a cookie.

Users have the option to block the setting of cookies by our site at any time by adjusting the relevant settings in their internet browser, thereby permanently refusing cookies. Additionally, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time through the internet browser or other software solutions. This functionality is available in all common internet browsers. However, if users choose to disable cookies in their browser, they might not be able to fully use all features of our website.

4) Collection of General Data and Information

When a data subject or automated system visits the Walzonprep website, it gathers various general data and information, which are stored in server log files. This data includes (1) the types and versions of browsers used, (2) the operating system of the accessing device, (3) the referring website, (4) the sub-pages visited, (5) the date and time of access, (6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address, (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information that could be vital in the event of attacks on our IT systems.

Walzonprep does not use this general data and information to draw conclusions about the individual. Instead, this information is crucial for (1) accurately delivering our website content, (2) optimizing our website content and advertising, (3) ensuring the ongoing functionality of our IT systems and website technology, and (4) providing necessary information to law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. Hence, Walzonprep statistically analyzes the anonymously collected data and information to bolster data protection and security within the company, striving for the highest level of personal data security. The anonymous server log file data are kept separate from all personal data submitted by a data subject.

5) Website Registration

Individuals have the option to register on Walzonprep's website by providing personal data. The specific personal data collected is determined by the registration form utilized.

Walzonprep may share this data with one or more service providers (e.g., a shipping company) that also processes the personal data for purposes related to Walzonprep's operations.

Upon registration on Walzonprep's website, the registering individual's IP address (provided by their Internet Service Provider), along with the date and time of registration, is recorded. This data collection is essential to prevent misuse of our services and to facilitate investigation of any potential offenses, thereby ensuring the protection of Walzonprep. This information is not disclosed to third parties, except under legal obligation or for law enforcement purposes.

The purpose of registration, which involves voluntarily submitting personal data, is to enable Walzonprep to offer content or services that are exclusively available to registered users due to the nature of these offerings. Registered users have the liberty to modify or delete their personal data provided during registration at any time.

Walzonprep commits to providing access to personal data stored about an individual upon their request. Furthermore, upon the individual's request or indication, Walzonprep will correct or delete personal data, unless bound by legal retention requirements. Walzonprep's staff are available to assist and serve as points of contact for individuals concerning their personal data.

Additionally, under Article 20(1) of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to have their personal data transferred directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and without harm to the rights and freedoms of others.

To exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any Walzonprep employee. Furthermore, the data subject has the option, within the context of information society services, to exercise their right to object by automated means using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8.8) Automated Individual Decision-Making, Including Profiling

Data subjects have the right, provided by the European legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effects concerning them or similarly significantly affects them, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, (2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also provides suitable measures to protect the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is based on the data subject's explicit consent.

If the decision is necessary for contract performance or is based on explicit consent, Walzonprep will implement appropriate measures to safeguard the data subject's rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests, including the right to obtain human intervention from Walzonprep, to express their point of view, and to contest the decision.

10 ) Data Protection Provisions for Facebook Usage

On this website, Walzonprep has incorporated elements of Facebook, a renowned social network. A social network is an online platform that facilitates social interactions and community engagement, enabling users to share opinions, experiences, and various types of content. Facebook provides features like private profile creation, photo uploads, and making connections through friend requests.

Facebook's operator in the U.S. is Facebook, Inc., located at 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025. For individuals outside the U.S. or Canada, the responsible entity is Facebook Ireland Ltd., situated at 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Whenever someone visits a page on this site that includes a Facebook plugin, their browser is prompted to display the Facebook component, initiating an automatic notification to Facebook about the specific page visited.

If a visitor is simultaneously logged into Facebook, each visit to our site, along with the specific pages viewed, is linked to their Facebook account. Interactions like clicking the "Like" button or leaving comments are also associated with a user's Facebook account and stored by Facebook.

Facebook receives data about visits to our site from logged-in users, irrespective of user interaction with the Facebook plugins. Users not wishing their data to be transmitted to Facebook can prevent this by logging out of their Facebook account before visiting our website.

Facebook's privacy policy, available at, details the collection, processing, and usage of personal data by Facebook and outlines privacy settings and data transmission opt-outs to enhance user privacy. These options provide users with ways to prevent data sharing with Facebook.

11) Google Analytics Integration

With the Google Analytics integration, Walzonprep solely retrieves advertising expenses to display them on the profit & loss dashboard. This feature enables customers to assess the profitability of their campaigns and fine-tune them for increased sales and profit.

Walzonprep does not employ the Google Analytics integration to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

Customers have the flexibility to connect or disconnect the integration at their convenience. Additionally, deleting the Walzonprep account will result in the erasure of any stored data related to this integration.

12) Data Protection Provisions for Google Analytics Use (Anonymization Function)

Walzonprep's website incorporates Google Analytics with the anonymization function, a tool for web analytics that helps in understanding how visitors engage with the site. Web analytics involves analyzing the behavior of website visitors, such as tracking the origin site (referrer), which pages are visited, and the duration of each visit, primarily to optimize website performance and conduct Internet advertising cost-benefit analysis.

Google Inc., located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA, operates Google Analytics.

To enhance privacy, Walzonprep utilizes "_gat._anonymizeIp", a feature that shortens and anonymizes the IP address of visitors from European Union Member States or other EEA states when they access our site.

The goal of integrating Google Analytics is to analyze site traffic. Google processes the data to evaluate website use, compile reports on website activities for website operators, and offer other services related to website and Internet usage.

Google Analytics uses cookies, as previously described, to gather information about website use. When a user visits a page on our site with a Google Analytics component, their browser automatically sends data to Google for analytics and commission calculation purposes. This process allows Google to collect personal data like the IP address, which helps track the origin of visitors and clicks for commission calculations.

Personal data collected, such as visit frequency and location, are sent to Google in the USA and may be stored there. Google may share this data with third parties.

Users can prevent cookie setting by adjusting their browser settings, which would also stop Google Analytics from placing a cookie on their device. Existing Google Analytics cookies can also be deleted through browser or software settings.

Additionally, users can opt-out of Google Analytics data collection by downloading and installing a browser add-on from This add-on prevents data transmission to Google Analytics. If the add-on is uninstalled or deactivated, it must be reinstalled or reactivated to continue the opt-out.

14) Data Protection Provisions for Google reCAPTCHA Use

Our websites utilize "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereafter "reCAPTCHA"), provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

reCAPTCHA's purpose is to determine whether the input on our websites (such as in a registration form) is being made by a human or an automated program. It conducts this verification by analyzing the behavior of website visitors based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically when a visitor accesses the site. During this process, reCAPTCHA evaluates information such as the IP address, the duration of the visit on the website, or mouse movements made by the visitor. The data collected is then sent to Google. These reCAPTCHA analyses occur entirely in the background, and visitors are not informed that an analysis is underway. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR, reflecting the website operator's legitimate interest in protecting its site from unauthorized automated access and SPAM.

15) Data Protection Provisions for Google AdWords Use

This website employs Google AdWords, a service for internet advertising that enables advertisers to display ads in Google search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows advertisers to specify keywords that trigger the display of their ads in Google search results only when a user conducts a search relevant to these keywords. In the Google Advertising Network, ads are placed on relevant web pages using an algorithm based on the selected keywords.

Google Inc., located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA, operates Google AdWords.

The aim of using Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying pertinent advertising on third-party websites and in Google search results, and by hosting third-party advertisements on our site.

This allows both Google and us to see if a user who clicked on an AdWords ad completed or cancelled a purchase.

Google uses the data collected via the conversion cookie to compile visit statistics for our website, helping us determine the success of our AdWords ads and to optimize future ads. Our company and other AdWords advertisers do not receive information from Google that can personally identify users.

The conversion cookie collects data such as the web pages visited by the user. Each visit to our site results in the transmission of this data, including the user’s IP address, to Google in the USA, where it is stored. Google may share this data with third parties.

Users can prevent cookie installation by our website at any time through their web browser settings, thereby permanently refusing cookies.

18) Legitimate Interests

The processing of personal data under Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR is grounded in our legitimate interest to conduct our business operations for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders. This approach underscores our commitment to fostering a prosperous work environment and ensuring the sustainable success of our company.

19) Data Retention Period

The determination of the personal data retention period is guided by the relevant statutory retention requirements. Following the conclusion of such periods, personal data is routinely erased, provided it is no longer essential for contract fulfillment or the commencement of contract negotiations.

20) Necessity of Providing Personal Data

It's important to note that the provision of personal data is sometimes a legal requirement (for example, due to tax laws) or may arise from contractual obligations (such as details about the contractual partner). At times, concluding a contract requires that the data subject furnish us with personal data that we will then process. For instance, when entering into a contract with our company, the data subject is obligated to provide us with personal data. Failing to supply this personal data means that the contract with the data subject could not be finalized. Data subjects should reach out to any of our employees before providing personal data. Our employees will then inform the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is mandated by law or contract, or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, including whether there's an obligation to provide the personal data and the implications of not doing so.

21) Automated Decision-Making

We are committed to responsible business practices and, as such, we do not engage in automatic decision-making or profiling. Our approach ensures that all our interactions and decisions involving personal data are conducted with individual attention and consideration, avoiding potential biases or errors that could arise from automated processes.
