SECTION 3.
PURPOSES OF THE PROCESSING FOR WHICH THE PERSONAL DATA ARE INTENDED. LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING

3.1. Data processing in relation to the online purchases
By ordering a product from our website, you (as a consumer), conclude with us (as a trader), a contract for sale of goods. This contract is concluded electronically and in the form of “distance contract”, i.e. a contract, concluded without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer at the same place, when signing the contract.
The main purpose for which we collect and use your personal data, is to make the execution of this distance contract possible – including to organize the payment and the delivery of the products you order and communicating with you about your order.
For this purpose, we collect the following categories of personal data: name, shipping address, payment information and contact details: email address and telephone number.
Personal data under this p. 3.1. is being processed on the legal grounds of point (b) of Article 6 (1) GDPR – data processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.
3.2. Customer support, including advice on the suitability of certain products
In the course of communication with our customer support agents, you may provide us with additional information, which may be needed in order to get help with choosing the right product. Such additional data may be: description of your skin condition and type, information about certain health issues with your skin, or your photographs, sent to us through Facebook, Instagram or other communication channels.
The categories of data described under this p. 3.2. and any other personal information disclosed to us in relation to this p. 3.2., will be used by us strictly for the purpose described herein, i.e. in order to provide to you the requested additional information, support or advise.
Personal data under this p. 3.2., falling into the category of data concerning one’s health, are treated as special category of data in the sense of Article 9 of GDPR. In order to lawfully collect and otherwise process health data, we need your explicit consent, as per point (a) of Article 9 (2) GDPR. This explicit consent will be obtained from you individually for each situation where health data is provided to us, regardless of its form (eg. written descriptions /explanations. emails, chat, photos sharing etc.).
Personal data under this p. 3.2., which does not qualify as health data, is being processed on the legal grounds of point (b) of Article 6 (1) GDPR /when necessary to facilitate the purchase/ and of point (f) of Article 6 (1). We believe we have the legitimate interest to expand our customer base by maintain high standards in our customer support, which includes having detailed discussions with our potential customers. This legitimate interest of ours mirrors the best interest of the client and also corresponds to his/her consumer right to information.
3.3. Email marketing of similar products

In the cases under this point, you will be clearly and distinctly given the opportunity to object, free of charge and in an easy manner, to such use of your electronic contact details when they are collected and on the occasion of each message, in case you had not initially refused such use.
We believe that this legitimate interest is well balanced against our customers’ interest to receive information about our new products, sales and special offers.
3.4. Other cases of marketing. Newsletter
You will use your contact details for the purposes of direct marketing (other than the one described above under p. 3.3.), only after obtaining your explicit consent. The same applies to the use of your email address for receiving biotrade’s newsletter.
