Why do we process your personal data?

We believe that it is important to keep you, as our client, informed about our products/services. This processing may involve compiling a profile. This profiling has no effect on you, except to the extent that this processing activity might lead to enhancement of customer experience and personalized offers, which is an advantage for you. The provision of your personal data for this purpose is not a requirement and you can object to this processing (see article 8 below).
You subscribe to a QBP activity.
We may process your personal data when you register for a QBP because this is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you to organize this activity. We may do this in collaboration with commercial partners with whom we may share your data based on their legitimate interest in knowing who is registering.
We may also use your personal data for direct marketing of our business based on our legitimate interests. We consider it important to keep you as our customer informed about our activities. This processing may consist of the creation of a profile.

The provision of your personal data for this purpose is not a requirement and you can object to this processing (see article 8 below).
In any case.
We may process your personal data for the management of compliance and disputes (e.g., prevention of unlawful activities, prevention of abuse of the QBP group’s resources and defense of legal claims).
We may anonymize your personal data and process aggregate data for research and development, based on our legitimate interests (e.g., statistics about sales, market analysis and development of products/services). Within QBP, we believe that research and development can lead to enhancement of customer experience, product improvement and innovation, which will help the persons concerned by our products/services (such as customers, distributors, suppliers, and end consumers). The provision of your personal data for this purpose is not a requirement and you can object to this processing (see article 8 below). Research and development may involve compiling a profile. All identifying elements, such as your name, your address, etc., are eliminated. This profiling has no effect on you, except to the extent that this processing activity might lead to enhancement of customer experience, product improvement and innovation, which is an advantage for you.
QBP may also process your personal data as a controller, at a group level, for global management and global research, based on its legitimate interests, those of the other group entities and their stakeholders. We believe that this is necessary for the efficiency, consistency, and continuity of the QBP operations and for the enhancement of customer experience, product improvement and innovation, which will help the persons concerned by our products/services and eventually contribute to safeguarding and promoting the economic, commercial, social, and financial interests of the QBP. The provision of your personal data for this purpose is not a requirement and you can object to this processing (see article 8 below).
