We process your Personal Data in compliance with the privacy and data protection laws in force in the European Economic Area and Switzerland.

This Privacy Policy applies to all Bausch & Lomb entities in Greece.

Collection and Use of Personal Data
Most of our services do not require registration. This means that you can visit our website without disclosing your name. However, some services may require that you voluntarily provide Personal Data that may include information such as your name, e-mail address or telephone number. We may collect and use these Personal Data to provide products, services and customer support, to invoice you for products and services you have purchased, to promote products and services which we think that may be of interest to you or to contact you for other reasonable reasons or for reasons we inform you about when we collect your Personal Data.
In some circumstances we may seek your consent for the collection and use of your Personal Data.  This will be the case, for example, for the use of certain cookies, for the use of your e-mail address or mobile phone number for advertising purposes, or when you subscribe to certain services (e.g., a regular newsletter).   You will always have the possibility of withdrawing this consent.  You can do so by using the contact details below.  

The Personal Data we collect is also used by us for internal purposes such as improving our products and promotions, managing customer accounts, learning about our customers’ needs and contacting customers for research and informational purposes.

We may process your Personal Data in the context of a corporate transaction and to protect our rights or property, to enforce our terms of use and legal notices and for the establishment, exercise and defense of legal claims.

We may process your Personal Data to meet tax, accounting and other legal obligations, for example, in the context of commercial transactions.  In addition, we process your Personal Data when required by law or compelled by court order or other binding decision.
Our website is not directed to minors.  However, if you are under 16 years of age, you must not provide us with your Personal Data without first obtaining the consent or authorization of your parent or guardian.
We will not use or share your Personal Data for purposes unrelated to those described in this Privacy Policy without first notifying you and, where required, offering you a choice as to whether or not we may use your Personal Data in this different manner.

Data Security

Data Integrity

We take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Data we collect is relevant for the purposes for which it is to be used and that the Personal Data is reliable for its intended use and is accurate, complete and current. However, in some cases we must rely on individual users to provide and maintain accurate Personal Data.  You are responsible for making sure that your information is up-to-date and accurate when you provide it to us and where our services offer you the tools to maintain your information.

Retention of Personal Data

We will only retain Personal Data for as long as we are required to do so by applicable law(s), or for as long as necessary for the purpose(s) for which it is processed.  We will delete Personal Data when it is no longer needed and, in any case, upon expiration of the maximum storage term set forth in applicable law.
