You will have been informed at the time your information was collected on those websites if your information was going to be shared within the FGX International or Essilor group and for what purposes. We also work closely with third parties (for example payment service providers, technical business partners, advertising analytics providers, search engine information providers, logistics service providers and subcontractors who provide services and goods to us to enable us to fulfil our customer contracts). If we receive information about you from them, we will inform you of this and the purposes for which we intend to use that information.

|Purposes for which we process your personal data||The basis on which we can do this (this is what the law allows)|
|In order to perform our contractual obligations to you. This would include our fulfilling orders you have placed for goods or services.||The processing is necessary in connection with any contract that you may enter into with us.|
|In order to comply with our own legal obligations, e.g. health and safety legislation, or to assist in an investigation (e.g. from the Police) or to pass information to any of our group companies for administrative purposes.||The processing is necessary for us and (if applicable our group companies) to comply with the law and our legal requirements.|

We would also like to use your personal data for purposes where it is appropriate for us to obtain your prior consent. These are as follows:
(a) where we or our carefully selected third parties have new products and services which we think you will be interested in.
The legal basis of consent is only used by us in relation to processing that is entirely voluntary – it is not used for processing that is necessary or obligatory in any way.
You may at any time withdraw the specific consent you give to our processing your personal data in these circumstances. Please note even if you withdraw consent we may rely on another legal basis to process your personal data where appropriate.
We may disclose your personal data:
It is possible that personal data we collect from you may be transferred, stored and/or processed outside the European Economic Area, specifically in the United States of America.
In connection with such transfers:
We take reasonable steps to protect personal information that is provided through the website. All personal information provided to us via the website is stored on a server in a secure environment. Our payment provider uses secure socket layer (SSL) technology which means the card payment data you enter through the website is fully encrypted. Where we have given you a password to access certain parts of the website, you are responsible for keeping that password secure and confidential.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and after it is received. Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure. Therefore, while we take reasonable steps to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We will store your personal data for the time period which is appropriate in accordance with our data retention policy. We keep the length of time that we hold your personal data for under review. These reviews take place annually.
In certain circumstances the provision of personal data by you is a requirement:
It is your choice as to whether you provide us with your personal data necessary to enter into a contract or as part of a contractual requirement. If you do not provide your personal data then the consequences of failing to provide your personal data are that we may not be able to perform to the level you expect under our contract with you. An example of this would be where we are unable to provide you with certain goods or services as we do not have your full details, or where we cannot perform our contract with you at all because we rely on the personal data you provide in order to do so.
Subject to applicable law including relevant data protection laws, in addition to your ability to withdraw any consent you have given to our processing your personal data (see section 4), you may have a number of rights in connection with the processing of your personal data, including the right:
If you would like to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us using the contact details set out in section 1.
We regularly review our Privacy Notice, in particular to make it compliant with new laws and regulations regarding data protection. But, even if this Privacy Notice may change from time to time, we will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Notice without your explicit consent.
