Data Protection

This website is hosted on the PhotoDeck platform on infrastructure provided by OVH (France) and Amazon (USA, Ireland). Zeaside.Kiwi relies on the PhotoDeck Platform und thus a PhotoDeck member. 

A PhotoDeck member is responsible (Data Controller) for their own (PhotoDeck-powered) website's data and for that website's clients' data.

PhotoDeck is the contracted Data Processor for Zeaside.Kiwi. Here is what PhotoDeck processes on Zeaside.Kiwi´s behalf and under its instruction:

Excerpt from

We (PhotoDeck) don't use that data outside of the scope of the service contracted by that member.

In other words, the data of a member's website and customers belong exclusively to that member, who control them fully.

This data includes, beside the member's images/video clips, website customization and configuration settings, any other personal data stored via the tools provided by PhotoDeck: for example, the customers' login credentials, carts, selections (lightboxes), orders, comments left on the website, IP address, physical addresses, et...

This data is mainly stored on servers located in OVH datacentres, in France. The files imported by our members, as well as websites' static code parts, are stored on the Amazon cloud. The data is partly accessible by the contractor(s) we use to provide technical support to our members.

The data are transmitted to third-parties, other than the subcontractors we use (and within the GDPR requirements), only upon instruction from the member (for example, order details transmitted to a lab for fulfillment).

The data is automatically deleted from our operational database at the end of the grace period (up to 2 months) following the last subscription (contract termination). The uploaded images, video clips and documents may be kept for an additional 2 months.
