Thank you for visiting our website.
Our website is managed by Foot Locker Europe.com GmbH (referred to as “Sidestep” ,"we," "us," or "our" herein). Sidestep (which is a subsidiary of Foot Locker Inc.,) is incorporated under Dutch law and registered at the Dutch chamber of commerce under the registration Number 30181126. The Sidestep website ("site") is a Netherlands based site and we have taken all necessary steps to comply with the requirements of the Dutch and European Data Protection Legislation.
We recently revised our Privacy Statement to make it easier for you to understand. This revised Privacy Statement, like our previous one, outlines the information we collect, how we may use and disclose it, and what your options are with respect to our practices.
Sidestep believes in protecting your information. With this in mind, we have adopted this Privacy Statement, which describes the information we may collect when you visit our sites (each a "site"), sign up for a brand loyalty membership (each a "Loyalty Program"), use our mobile applications (each an "App"), shop in our stores (each a "Store") or sign up for an event (each an “Event”) (collectively the "Services"). By using the Services, you agree to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree, please do not use the Services.

- Information You Provide to Us.
We only collect certain information from you when you provide it to us, such as when you: (1) register online or in one of our stores; (2) place an order; (3) complete a survey or product review; (4) participate in one of our promotions; (5) sign up for a Loyalty Program; or (6) contact us. The information we collect from you may include your name, age, postal mailing address, day time telephone number, cell phone number, email address, account user name and password, and payment information. If you use a third party login to register or otherwise link to us, we may receive certain information about you from the third party (such as a social network) based on your registration and privacy settings on that third party service.
We encourage you to register when shopping on our site or App; however registration is not required. Our Registration Form requires users to provide contact information (such as name, age, postal mailing address, daytime telephone number, cell phone number, email address and password). You must be 16 years of age or older to register or have consent of a parent or legal guardian. Registration helps us to provide you with a quick and simple checkout experience. You can also register when you are shopping in our store. The customer contact information you provide will be used to contact you concerning the status of an order, send you a digital receipt from your in-store purchase, answer your questions and, in case you choose to opt-in, to send you communications about upcoming sales, contests, promotions and product information. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your registration information and password. You are responsible for all use of the site or App under your registered account. If you would like, you can also fill out a customer profile. While it is not required, information obtained from the customer profile questions helps us to learn more about our customers and is used to improve your shopping experience and to provide you with more relevant content and advertising.
At Sidestep you have the option of using the so-called Facebook Connect feature to log in using your Facebook account without the need for additional registration. Facebook Connect is a service of the Facebook social media network and is operated by Facebook Inc (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) Registration at Sidestep is therefore no longer necessary. When you log in using Facebook Connect, you are redirected to the Facebook website where you can conveniently log in using your Facebook user information. During this process, your Facebook profile is linked with our Sidestep service. Only information you have consented to be used is shared with us, such as (first name, last name, email address, profile image, gender, date of birth, place of residence, list of friends, interests and likes). We will only use this information to identify you in the context of your use of Sidestep and to improve your shopping experience with more appropriate content and offers. You can find more information on Facebook Connect as well as access to your privacy settings at the following web page: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

The following cookies are used on our site:
- Session ID
In order to facilitate browsing through our site, we use a so-called session ID (or session identifier in full), which is allocated to each user at the beginning of each visit to our site. This session ID enables our server to identify you and/or your computer/browser as the same visitor, even if the IP address may have changed in the meantime. Based on this session ID, several associated inquiries made by a user can be allocated to one session. The session ID cookie used by us will only be valid until the end of a session. It will be deleted automatically upon closing your browser.
- Google Analytics
This site collects and stores data for marketing and optimisation purposes using cookies-based technologies from Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (Hereafter: “Google”). From this data, user profiles can be created under a pseudonym. Cookies allow recognition of the web browser you use. The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there. We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization feature on our site. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The data collected with Google Analytics technologies will not be used without the explicit consent of the person concerned; it will not be used to personally identify visitors to this site and it will not be merged with personal data regarding the user of the pseudonym. Data collection and storage can be cancelled any time with effect for the future. In this case, a cookie will be stored on your computer which indicates to us for as long as it is stored on your computer that you do not want Google Analytics to be used. Please do not delete this cookie as long as you wish to maintain your objection.
- Google Analytics Store Visits
We also activated "Store Visits" in Google Analytics on our site. Based on the anonymized aggregated data collected in Google analytics, Google Store Visits provides an estimated count of the number of store visits from users who visited our website and then visit one of our physical stores within 30 days. Store Visits data is based on anonymous, aggregated statistics. Google Analytics creates modeled numbers by using current and past data on the number of people who visit our website and later visit our store. Store Visits data can't be tied to individual ad clicks or people. Google uses industry best practices to ensure the privacy of individual users. You can maintain your settings to opt-in or opt-out in your google account at any time https://myactivity.google.com/
- Google Maps with recommendation components
The Google Maps function also includes the following recommendation buttons: “Google+-Button” from the company Google. “Facebook-Button” from the company Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA and the “Twitter-Button” from the company Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. By calling up the “Google Maps” page, these “Recommendation components” cause the browser you are using to download a corresponding display of the component from the respective provider. In this way, the respective provider mentioned above will be informed about which specific page of our internet site you are currently visiting. If you are logged in to your personal account at the provider previously mentioned at the time of calling up the “Google Maps” page, this will be able to collect the information obtained about the sites recommended by you as well as your IP address and other browser relevant information and link it to your respective account. If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data by the respective provider about you and your behaviour on our site, you must log out of those providers before you visit our site. You can find out more about the data collection of the respective providers in their privacy policies online
- Use of Google-Adwords
- Use of Google AdSense
Our site employs Google AdSense. Google AdSense is a service of Google for incorporating advertisements. Google-AdSense uses so-called “cookies“, text files, that are stored to your computer and which provide analysis of the use of our site. furthermore, Google AdSense uses so-called “web beacons“. Web beacons allow Google to analyze information, such as visitor traffic to our site. This information, along with your IP address and the ad format displayed, is transmitted to Google in the US where it is stored and may be transferred by Google to contracting partners. However, Google does not merge your IP-address with other stored data on you. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our site.

- The use of Google Remarketing
- Online advertising / third-party cookies
Some of the cookies on our site are used by our co-operation partners for the purposes of online marketing (so-called third-party cookies). Here is some more information: When you visit our site for the first time, specific cookies from our advertising partners are stored on your computer and used by our co-operation partners for switching, optimisation and evaluation of online advertising. These cookies collect information such as the products you view on our site. Advertisements of our deals can subsequently be switched on sites of partners of the advertising networks of our cooperation partners (so-called usage-based advertising). When ads appear on other sites, information about your visit to this site where we have an advertisement – such as how many times you have viewed an ad – will be collected and passed on to us.

On our site, we use so-called plug-ins of various social networks. Here is more information on the plug-ins we use:
- Facebook Social Plug-ins
Our site uses programmes (plug-ins) from the social network Facebook. These are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The Facebook plugins are identifiable by the Facebook logo or the "Like" or "Share" buttons on our site. When you visit a page on our site, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook server using the plugin. Thus, Facebook receives information about which IP address you used when accessing our site. Since this transfer takes place directly, we do not receive any knowledge of the transmitted data. If you are logged into your personal user account with Facebook when visiting our site, Facebook can associate the visit with your Facebook account and thereby relate it to you personally. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the "Like" button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. For information about the purpose and scope of data collection by Facebook, further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information regulations. If you do not wish Facebook to assign your visit to our site to your Facebook user account, please log out from your Facebook account before you visit our site.

The "+1" button of the social network "Google+", operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) is embedded on our site. The button is identifiable by the "+1" symbol on a white or coloured background. If you visit a page from our site that contains such a button, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Google servers. The content of the "+1" button is transmitted directly to your browser by Google and is embedded in the site by it. For information about the purpose and scope of data collection, further processing and use of data by Google, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Google's data protection information regarding the "+1" button.
