6. Your legal rights
When you use our site to purchase products from us, the processing of your personal data is necessary to fulfil your orders and is a lawful basis for collecting and using the data you give us.

Under these circumstances, we will inform you of how the data you provide will be collected, stored and used before seeking your consent.
