Our legal basis for processing your personal information

We only use your personal information when the law allows us to. We will use your personal information for the purposes described above in the following circumstances:

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. Our legitimate interests include if you have left an abandoned basket on our site or if we believe there is a product that you might prefer, based on your recent purchase history. Reminders to renew your lenses are also of legitimate interest so that you do not run out, or have not, in any way, exceeded the recommended duration of the lens/solution life. We will also occasionally send you your balance of reward points that you have collected with us as they can be used to purchase more of your product. Where there is important medical information that relates to products (contact lenses are medical devices) we will send out information via emails. We ensure to maintain a balance of any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your data for our legitimate interests. You’ve the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal information concerning you which is based on legitimate interests. More information on this right and on how to exercise it is set out below,
  • Where we need to perform a contract, we are about to enter into or have entered into with you, and
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal information. If we do ask for your consent for any use of your personal information, you have the right to withdraw it at any time by contacting us using the contact details at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.
