Alveola describes its data management principles below, presenting the expectations that it formulated as a data controller and that are complied with. 

1. THE AIM OF DATA MANAGEMENT:

Alveola maintains an online portal ("Website") at http://alveola.com in order to 

  • facilitate contacting and maintaining contacts with people interested in Alveola's products and services on the Website ("Potential Customer") and provide Potential Buyer with the information they need to contact and register to the database created for this purpose ("Potential Customer Database") without obligation to contract ("Customer Relationship"),

  • transmit Alveola advertising newsletter on Alveola's products and services, and on any new features of the Website and other relevant information for visitors of the Website, who have given their consent to this ("Subscribers") and registered to this database ("Newsletter Database”) - in electronic form.

In addition, Alveola submits data of advertisements for professional cosmetic clients ("Customers"), who have registered in the database ("Offline Marketing Database") by electronic, phone and postal way for the purposes of direct business acquisition and manages processing of data ("Direct Business Acquisition”). 

In our Privacy Policy, Subscribers, as well as Potential Customers, and Customers or any other visitor of the Website will collectively be referred to as "Concerned People / Concerned Person/", while databases created for these purposes will be named "Concerned Databases". 

In accordance with Article 8 (1) of the GDPR, for the registration and subscription of a user, who has not yet reached the age of 16 or who is limited to act, it is required the consent of his/her legal representative or caretaker, and in the absence thereof, the registration of a minor user, or person who is limited to act, cannot be accepted by the data controller, thus the registration submitted will be cancelled. The data controller, considering the available technology, makes reasonable efforts to verify that the consent has been granted or authorized by the child parental supervisor. 

Alveola shall manage the data recorded in the Concerned Databases exclusively in accordance with this Data Protection Regulation and shall not transmit or make them available to a third party, except where such disclosure or data transmission is by statutory, authority or court order mandatory, or it is indicated in this Data Protection Regulation. 

By using the Website or with that registration Concerned People expressly accept, what is written in this Data Protection Regulation and voluntarily consent to the managing and processing of their personal data as described in this Regulation.  

 

2. LEGAL BASIS FOR DATA MANAGEMENT: 

The legal basis for managing data entered in the Concerned Databases is, as a rule, an informed and voluntary contribution of the Concerned Person.  

If the personal data has been collected with the consent of the Concerned Person, the data controller shall record the data collected, unless otherwise provided by law, in order to fulfil its legal obligation or to enforce a legitimate interest of the data controller or third party, if the enforcement of this interest is proportionate to the limitation of the right to the protection of personal data without further special consent and if the data can be processed also after withdrawing the consent of the Concerned Person.  

 

3. SCOPE OF ALVEOLA'S PERSONAL DATA, DATA TRANSMISSION AND DURATION OF DATA MANAGEMENT

Alveola declares that its data management does not cover personal data (specific category) within the meaning of Article 9 of the GDPR. Such personal data will not be processed, if it would be in possession of such data, these data would immediately be deleted.
