1. Our Policy
Everyone has the right to protection of his/her personal data.
Optikascience respects its users' right to be informed regarding the collection of and other operations involving their personal data. In using data, that may directly or indirectly identify you personally, you will apply the principle of strict necessity.
For this reason, we have designed optikascience.comin such a way that the use of your personal data will be kept to a minimum and will not exceed the purposes for which your personal data was collected and/or processed; we do not process your personal data when we can provide you with services through the use of anonymous data (such as marketing research made for improving our services) or by other means which allow Optikascience to identify you a part from when it is strictly necessary or upon request of the competent public authorities or the police (as, for example, in case of traffic data or your IP address).

Optikascience determines the purposes and means for the processing your personal data, including security measures, as Optikascience controls optikascience.comusers' personal data.
This Privacy Policy provides you with all information needed to understand how we collect data which may identify Optikascience.com's users.

2. How Do We Use Personal Data and for What Purposes
Your personal data is collected and processed by Optikascience, both as users and registered customers, for purposes which are strictly connected to the use of the website, its services and to the purchase of products on the website.

In particular, your personal data shall be processed for the following purposes:

• when you register with our website we collect your personal data
