4 – On what basis do we collect your data?
In short: We must have a valid reason to use your data. One of the reasons we need to collect your Personal Data is that it is necessary for us to perform our contract with you. Another reason is the fact that we have a legitimate interest that justify the processing, or that we have a legal obligation to process the data. In all other cases, we will process your Personal Data because we have your consent.
- For some processing activities, we require your prior consent
You will always be prompted to take a clear, affirmative action so that we can ensure that you agree with the processing of your Personal Data. This action may, for example, take the form of a checkbox, or a link that you can click on.
Before obtaining your consent, we will systematically inform you of the purposes of the processing, and you can choose to consent to certain uses that we will make of your data and to refuse others.
If you have given us your consent, you may always change your mind, and withdraw your consent at any time and easily; all you need to do is to send us an email at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the “unsubscribe link” at the bottom of our marketing e-mail communications.
If you refuse to give us your consent, or decide to withdraw it, you will not suffer any negative consequences and will be able to continue to use the rest of our service normally. However, some functionality or features may be limited.
If you have given us your consent, and the processing we carry out on your Personal Data changes significantly, we will collect your consent again.
We will ask for your consent for sending you electronic advertising and promotional messages relating to our products and services and to our relevant brand partners, including on social media.
- When we justify our processing operations on the basis of a contract that we have with you
Certain processing of your Personal Data is necessary so that we can perform the service you have asked us to perform. We justify our processing on our contract with you to process all the Personal Data that is necessary to respond to any queries you may have, or to send you your prize if you win one of our competitions.
- Processing operations that are necessary to meet our legitimate interests
Legitimate interest is a set of commercial or business reasons that justify that we process Personal Data about you. Our legitimate interests are to ensure to detect potential influencers that our brands can work with.
We will use legitimate interest only when we have carried out an assessment on the impact that this processing may have on you, and concluded that the processing does not unduly infringe your rights and freedoms. For example, we do not use this justification if we process sensitive data, or when the processing would be unexpected for you, or if we consider it to be too intrusive.
