This Privacy & Cookies Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from www.evilspeed.eu (the “Site”).
What information do we collect?
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information”. This information is strictly limited to the history of activities that the user engaged in while on our site. It does NOT include any personally identifiable information (PII).
The purpose of this information is to improve your experience, improve the efficiency of advertising campaigns, and prevent fraud. You can read more about how we use this information in the section below.
We collect Device Information using these technologies:
- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/;
- “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps;
- “Web beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site
Additionally, when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information, email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information”.
All such information is strictly protected and used only for delivering the content and products the user has signed up for or purchased and is NEVER used for other purposes, including, sharing personal information with 3rd parties for their own use, unless in certain cases the delivery of said content and products requires it or it is required by law (please see section "sharing your personal information" where we explain this).
Hereinafter we set out our intended purposes for the usage of cookies and similar technologies on our websites. Additionally we offer options for consent management to withdraw your consent at any time or to reject the usage.
What are cookies?
Cookies, and web storage technologies such as local storage and session storage (“cookies”), make your interaction on our sites easier and smoother – with no extra effort on your part. For example, they are small text files that are downloaded by your internet browser to your device when you visit our websites. While you interact with our websites, technologies from third-party providers such as scripts, pixels and tags, which we integrate on our websites for advertising purposes, also set cookies on your device. In the following sections, you will find information and specific details in the corresponding lists regarding what we use these technologies for, and how you can change your settings to suit your requirements.
What do you need to know about cookies?
Cookies help to provide a better and faster experience. A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website on the same device, the website that originally triggered the setting of the cookie then recognises that you have been here before, and in some cases, it tailors what appears on screen to take account of that fact. In this way, it can be made more relevant to your personal interests and needs.
First-party cookies are cookies that we deploy on the website that you are currently visiting and those with which you will interact when you continue your journey on our websites.
What happens if you reject cookies?
If you decide to reject cookies that require consent, we will accept your decision and not use such cookies. We will delete them whenever this is technically possible and if they are first-party cookies. This means, however, that in the case of functional cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of all the features and functionality of our websites. Similarly, it is possible for you to object to performance cookies. Doing this, however, it prevents us from being able to learn what you like or don’t like about our website so that we can make it better. Please note that we cannot delete third-party cookies. If you wish to delete all third-party cookies, you need do this in your browser settings. Please note that if you will reject the third-party cookies, this does not mean that you will see less advertising. It just means that the advertising you see will not be as customised to your needs.
Managing your browser’s cookies
You can manage the cookie settings on our websites by altering your browser settings. Most browsers allow you to manage your cookies by either accepting or rejecting all cookies or accepting only certain types of cookies. The procedure for managing and deleting cookies can be found in your browser’s integrated help function. It is important to note that if you change your settings and block certain cookies, you might not be able to take full advantage of some features of our sites, and we might not be able to provide some content you have previously seen or used.
What cookies do we use?
Please check the cookie scan summary for our website here: Scan Summary - Cookieserve - evilspeed.eu
Web beacons: At times, we work with third-party service partners that employ web beacons (also known as pixel tags, clear GIFs, single pixel GIFs, or action tags) for our benefit to help us measure advertising effectiveness. Similar in function to cookies, they are used to track the online movements of our users. They are not tied to your Personally Identifiable Information and only track the visitor traffic and behavior to and on our Site.
They can "work with" existing cookies on a computer if they are both from the same website or advertising company. That means, for example, that if a person visited "www.companyX.com", which uses an advertising company's web beacon, the website would match the web beacon identifier and the advertising company's cookie ID number, to show the past online behavior for that computer. This collected information can be shared with the advertising company but such information never includes personally identifiable information.
A prime example (the one this Site uses) is the Facebook tracking pixel. It allows us to retarget messages on Facebook and find other people that might find our products interesting.
How do we use your personal information?
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
In addition, device information can be used to provide you with targeted advertisements and marketing communications. For example:
After visiting our website, you notice an advertisement of "evilspeed" on Facebook a few days later.
You can learn more about Device Information and how we use it in the "what are cookies/log files/web beacons and how do we use them?" section below.
We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:
- Communicate with you;
- Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud;
- When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
Sharing your personal information
We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. For example, we use Shopify to power our online store – you can read more about how Shopify uses your Personal Information here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy. Learn more about third parties by reading the "third party services" section below.
We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site. You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.
Third party services
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So, if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Europe and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
As described above, we use your Personal Information to provide you with targeted advertisements or marketing communications we believe may be of interest to you. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.
If you find this spooky - you're in good company. You can opt out of targeted advertising by using the links below:

Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.
How we ensure transaction security?
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
Payment: If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted. All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or Privacy Statement (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).
Additionally, to protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations (purchase records must be stored for 10 years to comply with local accounting standards), resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
Your rights to your information
You have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted - if no other laws preventing us from doing so exist. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.
Additionally, if you are a European resident we note that we are processing your information in order to fulfill contracts we might have with you (for example if you make an order through the Site), or otherwise to pursue our legitimate business interests listed above. Additionally, please note that due to our platform provider/data processor (Shopify) being located in the US your information will be transferred to servers located outside of Europe, including to Canada and the United States.
