Collecting Personal Data and why?
Personal Data we collect and process for our own purposes: Collected Data
When you visit our Websites or purchased anything in Markerz International events, Markerz International may collect information, which may include Personal Data, from Individuals as set forth below (collectively referred to as “Collected Data”). For the purposes of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Markerz International shall be the controller for the Collected Data – this means that Markerz International decides what Collected Data is processed and why.
Data we process on your behalf: Service Data
We only process Service Data as per our Customer’s instructions.

Service Data, as defined in the Terms, means all electronic data, text, messages or other materials, including Personal Data of Users, submitted to the Service(s) by our Customers through Customer’s Account in connection with Customer’s use of the Service(s). We work with our Customers to help them provide notice to their customers concerning the purpose for which Personal Data is processed by Markerz International.
We do not own, control or direct the use of Service Data, and in fact we are largely unaware of what information is being stored on our platform and only access such information as reasonably necessary to provide the Service(s) (including to respond to support requests), as otherwise authorized by Customers or as required by law. Unless we explicitly agree otherwise in writing, you will not process sensitive personal data (such as health data) on our platform.
As the processors of Personal Data on behalf of our Customers, we follow Customer’s instructions with respect to the Service Data to the extent consistent with the functionality of our Service(s). In doing so, we implement technical, physical and administrative measures against unauthorized processing of such information and against loss, destruction of, or damage to, Personal Data.
We use your personal information for the following purposes:
- To ensure our site is relevant to your needs.
- To deliver services, such as Electronics & Electrical, Home Appliances, that you request or purchase.
- To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services from Markerz International, if you so request.
We do not sell, rent, or lease our customer lists to third parties.
When collecting contact information that might be used to intimate you about our products and services, we will always give you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving such communications. Each email we send includes an unsubscribe link allowing you to stop delivery of that type of communication.
