What Information is Collected and How is it Used?


VELUX collects two types of information: personal information and non-personal information.

With your consent, we may use your personal information for many different purposes, for example:

  • Fulfill requests for products, services or information;
  • Provide customer service.

We only collect personal information from you when you voluntarily offer the information, such as when you set up an account with us or if you place an order as a guest.

When placing an order with us, your credit card information is encrypted using SSL protocol and sent directly to our credit card processing company, Elavon, where it is only stored until the completion of your transaction. You are able to modify all personal information that is stored after the completion of an online transaction by logging into your account.

Non-personal information does not identify you as an individual. Like many other web sites, we automatically collect some non-personal information such as the website pages visited, the images that are viewed, the content that you download from the website, which website you used to connected to our website and the date and time you access the website. We use this information to track website traffic patterns which enables us to know what type of information is most useful to you so that we can improve our website and make it easier for you to access information.


Safeguarding Information


All personal information is stored on network servers which are protected by firewalls from network intrusions and in a secure data centre to protect from physical theft. Additionally, you can request to have all your personal information removed from our servers by sending an email to blindshop@velux.com


Discloser of Information to Third Parties


VELUX collects information solely for internal use and will not disclose any personal information collected to a third party unless required by law or to co-operate with local, provincial, national and international authorities in investigations of improper or unlawful activities.
