I - General Conditions of Sale
1.1 Ordering and Purchasing Process
The ordering and purchasing process is only possible after the creation of a customer account and/or the customer's login to the online store, which should follow the various sequential steps of the ordering process that will allow registration of the purchase.
Payment Terms and Methods
Upon completion of the ordering process in the customer's personal account, the purchase will be registered and the customer will have a deadline, indicated in the payment method selected, to proceed to the payment. At the end of this period, if there is no confirmation of payment, and provided that the customer has not selected the cash on delivery payment method, the order will be cancelled. Some payment methods allow the saving of the data required to carry out the payment transaction. However, in this context, no personal data of the customer will be stored, so, such data management should be done directly with the service provider. Exception should be made for situations where the service provider allows the management of personal data to be made directly on our website, in which case, whenever in compliance with the applicable legal provisions, the indications issued by the provider will be complied with, in particular in protection of personal data. In either case, no data related to payment information provided by the customer will be stored unless prior and express consent has been given by the customer.
PROZIS offers several types of payment methods for purchases made through the online store:
Cash on Delivery
When choosing the Cash on Delivery payment method, the payment will only take place upon order delivery.
Orders placed with this payment method are limited to a maximum of 250,00 €.
Depending on the carrier, the payment may be made by debit card or cash. The customer should take note that, for payments in cash, the exact amount to be paid should be provided as couriers are not required to carry change. This means that, if the amount paid is higher than the amount charged, the customer will risk losing the difference, for which PROZIS cannot be held responsible.
Remark: For public health reasons, the cash-in-hand payment option may be suspended. Whenever that occurs, such information shall be included on the text box of that payment method, made available on the last tab of the order procedure.
This payment method may cause the charge of an additional delay of 24 hours on order delivery. Opting for this method may also determine an additional cost to be charged by the selected carrier. The aforesaid delivery times will be met if under normal order processing conditions, with a proviso for the cases of exceptional increase in the volume of orders that may occur during festive periods or during promotional campaigns, as well as for other eventualities that may prevent the regular provision of the delivery service.
The customer can make the payment using a credit card and so benefiting from the liquidity and payment conditions offered by their bank. The use of this payment methods presupposes, at least until the moment of the purchase, the indication of the 16 digits, as well as of the three digits of the safety code (CCV) of the card, of the respective expiration date and of the name of its holder, which shall correspond to the name of the account holder or to the name of one of their household members. Whenever such requirements shall not be met, the customer may be required to provide additional clarification in order to comply with fraud detection and safety control procedures.
Is it safe to make an online payment using my credit card?
All transactions on our website are secure.
PROZIS uses a sophisticated fraud detection and prevention mechanism. Through this solution, it is possible to verify the authenticity of payments made online, simultaneously ensuring the integrity and security of the customer's data as well as their identification. This security is enabled by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts communications between customer's software and our server so that communications cannot be intercepted. Therefore, PROZIS reserves the right to refuse the payment of an order if the transaction is found to be unlawful. Any and all activities deemed illegal will be immediately reported to the competent authorities.
3D Secure is a communication protocol designed to improve the security of online payments and to enable the authentication of the credit card user by the credit card issuing bank. Following a payment to an online store, a process is triggered to verify if the card used is valid. Should the credit card be considered valid, the security systems associated with the 3D Secure protocol verify the customer's identity, resorting to the credit card issuing bank in real time, which, in turn, validates the customer's identity and reports confirmation that the card used is legitimate. Such control is intended to protect credit card holders by reducing the likelihood of fraudulent use of their cards, ensuring greater effectiveness of the transaction. This protocol is used by Visa, under the name "Verified By Visa" and by Mastercard, under the name "Secure Code".
How is the credit card payment processed?
After selecting the credit card payment option and clicking "Buy" on the last stage of the purchase process, the customer will be redirected to the webpage of the entity that ensures the payment transaction. On the said webpage, after choosing between the VISA and Mastercard option, the credit card details shall be entered, namely the ones abovementioned. In that sequence, the customer should click the "I validate my payment" button.
If payment is declined, in the shopping cart window a message will be sent to the customer, indicating the verified error. In such event, a new payment attempt is recommended; if the problem persists, contact with the respective bank or the credit card issuing entity for further information is recommended.
Once paid, the amount will be immediately debited from the customer's credit card account. If, for any reason, there should be the need to cancel the order, in whole or in part, the amount will be refunded within five working days. Predictably, the transaction will be reflected in the customer's card statement after three business days from the date it was made.
Remark: Payments are always made in Euros, even when prices are displayed in other currencies. Some banking entities may charge exchange rates. PROZIS is totally unaware of this fact and therefore takes no responsibility for it.
Depending on the country, PROZIS may offer other payment methods, the description of which will be made available, on demand, by the Customer Service Department:
- SEPA Bank Transfers
- Instant Wire Transfers
- Cryptocurrency Payment
- Deferred Payment
Remark: Due to the current economic conjuncture and the recent international constraints, not all payment methods may be available at the same time. For this reason, the identification and the conditions of use of each payment method available at any given time are published in the last step of the order procedure, immediately prior to its confirmation. Such conditions will, as such, only be valid for the respective purchase, considering, for this purpose and whenever applicable, the validity period of the same.
The customer can only cancel the order prior to the respective payment and processing. If that should be the case, cancellation should be requested by choosing the "Orders" option, available in the personal area of the customer account. To do so, the customer must select the order that intends to cancel and click on the "Cancellation Order" button. Once the order has been cancelled, a message requesting confirmation of that purpose shall be displayed.
Remark: Order cancellation is only possible through the abovementioned process. Any similar request made by other means cannot be fulfilled.
1.2. Delivery Process
Once the order has been shipped, the customer will receive a confirmation email with their invoice, the assigned shipping number and a hyperlink that will allow the tracking of the order on the carrier's website. The customer may also have access to that hyperlink by logging in to their account and clicking on the "Orders" tab, available on the sign-in page and by accessing the "Help" icon on the site header bar, following the "Track Order" option. Either way, the customer will be provided with all information about the order, including the hyperlink abovementioned.
Attempting to track the order online upon receipt of the shipment confirmation email may not return any results. Shipping information may take up to 24 hours from receipt of shipment confirmation to be updated on the carrier's website without liability to PROZIS.
Orders are delivered from Monday to Friday, except for local or national holidays, at the address indicated by the customer when placing the orders.
PROZIS provides regular delivery services, which are subject to the own procedures of the carriers, in particular regarding the customer's personal data required to fulfill the delivery obligation, the shipping methods, delivery times, costs and constraints associated with the requirements of the orders to be delivered and with the procedures related to the validation of the recipient's identity (or of the identity of the third person acting on their behalf). PROZIS cannot be held responsible for any modification on the service conditions provided by the carriers as PROZIS is only obliged to assure that the carriers' procedures used on each delivery process are in full compliance with the terms and conditions in force at the time of the confirmation of the purchase by the customer. The specificity of some product segments may justify the establishment of a minimum purchase price, which will always be indicated at the last stage of the ordering process.
Prior to ordering frozen products, customer should be aware of the special conditions of transport and handling of the order as the refrigeration of such products is ensured by distributing them in cool boxes containing dry ice. By way of example, the following safety measures for the transport and handling of frozen products are listed: (i) the transport shall be carried out in a separate and isolated compartment from the driver; (ii) the box shall not be left inside the motor vehicle for long periods of time; iii) the box should be kept out of the reach of children; iv) the box must remain in a ventilated place; v) the product must be kept in an appropriate and ventilated container; vi) dry ice should never be used or stored in small areas, basements or store-rooms without ventilation; vii) dry ice may only be handled with insulating gloves or appropriate tools (e.g. tweezers); viii) the ingestion of dry ice and / or skin contact is extremely hazardous.
Warning: The abovementioned rules must be observed whenever any frozen product is added to an order, and even if no special transport or handling conditions is applicable to the remaining products of the order, as the thermal box of the frozen product (s) will be included in the shipping carton of all ordered products.
Thus, the available shipping options may depend on the sort of products to be delivered, to the address of destination, to the shipping method (home delivery or pick-up point collection) or even, whenever the 24h service is selected, at the time of the validation of the payment method.
The expected delivery time, as well as other eventual constraints or relevant remarks in force at the time of the conclusion of the purchasing process will be noted, as an informative remark, on which of the delivery options displayed on the "Shipping methods" tab.
Warning: the delivery times, counted from the date of the effective delivery date, are merely indicative as shall only be applicable whenever no physical or structural constraints are verified (e.g.: incorrect addresses or force majeure events as strikes, missed connections, extreme weather events, etc.). Exception shall also be made to situations where an exceptional volume of orders is verified, which shall occur during festive times and when promotional campaigns take place, as well as other events which prevent regular delivery service.
Customer may, therefore, receive the order at an address of their choice (exception made to PO Boxes). To do so, the customer only needs to provide the address where will be present 9am and 7pm of the day scheduled for delivery. An attempt to deliver to the address indicated will be made by a courier from the chosen transport service.
Remark: It is not possible to choose a specific delivery time as it will be conditioned by the courier route on the day of delivery, which is exclusively set by the transport service.
The indication of an incorrect or incomplete delivery address may result in the order being returned to PROZIS and may lead to additional costs for the customer; for this reason, it is highly recommended that the customer always makes sure that the delivery address indicated at the time of the order placement is effectively correct and complete. Once the order is placed, it is not possible to change the delivery address or the provided billing data.
In contrast, if an option for the pick-up point collection is made, customer will be subject to a time limit for the collection, no less than seven days, but exclusively determined by the selected courier service and by this solely confirmed, via SMS directly sent to the customer, under the penalty of returning the order to PROZIS.
Warning: In either case, for reasons of service organisation and the carriers' distribution procedures, the recipient's identification data will be printed on a label that will be placed on the outside of the shipping box. As this is personal data of the customers, it is advisable to destroy or erase the data, after receiving the order, so to prevent such data from being consulted by third parties after the disposal of the packages at the recycling points.
Shipping costs are automatically calculated by the system and may vary accordingly to the following circumstances:
- actual or volumetric weight (whichever the higher);
- total amount of the order*;
- range of products**;
- delivery address;
- carriers pricing fees, which are subject to regular updates.
Shipping costs are automatically updated as the products are added to the shopping cart.
These specific purchase conditions are clearly identified during the ordering process and immediately before the confirmation of the respective purchase.
* Ordering frozen products may be subject to a minimum purchase amount and to the payment of the transport packaging in low value orders.
Reimbursement of shipping costs
There are three possible situations due to which the reimbursement of shipping costs may take place:
i) Failure to deliver the order for reasons attributable to PROZIS or to the carrier: the customer will be fully reimbursed for any amount paid as delivery costs. A PROZIS' Customer Service returns and refunds employee will contact the customer in order to confirm the right to reimbursement and to provide any further clarification on this matter.
ii) Error in the shipped product(s) shipped or shipment of defective product(s): The customer will be reimbursed in full for any amount eventually paid as shipping costs only if the error or defect occurs in all products shipped. For more information on this matter, see section 1.5. below.

In this context, PROZIS will fully reimburse the amount that the customer may have paid by way of delivery, with the exception of: a) any supplementary costs resulting from the choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery provided by us; b) any costs of returning the order as a result of this exercise of the right of withdrawal. In either case, the customer will bear the cost of returning the items to the warehouse.
Within 24 hours, PROZIS will acknowledge receipt of the intention to terminate the contract.
The reimbursement will be made without undue delay and within 14 days of receiving the returned item(s) in PROZIS' warehouse with prior notice. PROZIS shall communicate to the consumer an acknowledgement of receipt of such withdrawal within 24 hours.
Remark: PROZIS will carry out the reimbursement of the cost of the products using the same payment method used for the initial transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise by the consumer; in any event, the consumer will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement of the amounts paid by way of delivery.
Procedures applicable to incidents
In the event that a prepaid order* is returned to PROZIS for reasons attributable to PROZIS, the amount paid for the purchase will be refunded, including delivery costs and return shipping costs.
* Prepaid orders are all those that do not correspond to cash on delivery.
The customer may choose to be refunded on the original payment method or through a refund coupon that may be used on a future order. The coupon will be valid for 12 months from its issuing date. After this validity, no refund will be possible.
If the reason for the unsuccessful delivery and return of the order is the responsibility of the carrier, regardless of the chosen payment method, the customer will have to file a written complaint which will be analyzed by the carrier.
Alternatively, and subject to the prior express consent of the customer, such complaint may be sent to the carrier as supporting document of the incidence created on the basis of the non-delivery.
1.3. Return and Exchange Procedure
In addition to the conditions specifically provided for in the preceding paragraph, the customer should also consider the fact that, if the product to be returned has been purchased as part of a promotional campaign and, therefore, has benefited from a product-offer, both those items should be returned. For that reason, all the products must comply with the conditions of return abovementioned.
As per the products set in packs, it will only be accepted the return of the full packs. If a product that belongs to a pack is to be returned, all the products belonging to the same pack must be returned. All products must comply with the abovementioned conditions of return.

Due to their nature, the return of Prozis Gift Cards, of Cartões-Presente and/or of frozen products will not be accepted either. The non-acceptance of an order containing frozen products, as well as its non-delivery due to reasons not attributable to Prozis nor to the carrier, will determine the loss of the right to the reimbursement of the price paid for the frozen products and related costs, namely shipping costs and the cost of the packaging.
Remark: the lack of any of the requirements deemed necessary to put back the product in stock for sale, namely the respective instruction manual, in its original condition, shall entail the immediate classification of the product as incomplete and, consequently non-returnable.
Every single product to be returned shall, for that reason, be shipped in accordance to the abovementioned conditions, this meaning that the carrier's label shall be attached to the original transport packaging box or to an alternative box chosen by the customer but which may ensure the proper conditions of the product. If this should be the case, the alternative box will be destroyed as soon as the product is confirmed as intact and complete.
If any of the previous conditions are not met, the customer will lose the right to be refunded and will have 10 days to collect the item (s) at the said facilities, at their own expenses. The collection must be made by a carrier appointed by the customer as the collection by natural persons, not even by the customer, is not permitted.
In order to obtain the exchange of the product(s), the customer shall return the item (s), request a refund and make a new purchase. The entire return procedure is properly described in the item Returns in what concerns to the determination of the conditions applicable to the matter of the acceptance of the products to be exchanged.
Warning: PROZIS reserves the right to accept the return of clothing products for future exchange if the customer, at their own expense, makes the respective return to the warehouse identified above and the product is received in accordance to the terms described in the item Returns above set, namely regarding the conservation status. In that case, and if the product is considered suitable for re-entry into stock, a coupon will be issued for the same product to be applied in a future order, being applicable the conditions of use of such coupon provided in the Coupons tab. If the returned product is not in the conditions described above, the customer will be sent a message stating the non-acceptance of the return with an indication of the period of time made available for the collection, in the warehouse, of the product originally sent.
PROZIS will endeavor to reimburse the customer promptly although having, to that end, a period of 15 days from the receipt, in the warehouse above indicated, of the returned order.
If payment has been made by credit card, the refund will be made to the credit card itself and will predictably be reflected on the following bank statement.
Should the payment have been made by one of the remaining payment methods available at the time of the purchase, whenever the refund may not be made by the same original payment method, the customer shall be required to provide the details of the bank account to which the amount to be refunded shall be transferred.
However, the customer may choose to be refunded through a discount coupon, regardless of the original payment method. The coupon will be valid for 12 months from its creation date. After that date, no refund will be possible.
Remark: Some providers of the payment methods may not allow refunds to be made via the original method once some months have passed. On such cases, customer shall be required to indicate a national bank account to which the refund shall be made. For that purpose, the customer should provide a bank statement on which the IBAN, the SWIFT code, the name of the bank, as well as the holder of such account shall be clearly identified. PROZIS reserves the right to not proceed with such refunds until the customer meets the necessary requirements for the confirmation of the ownership of the account.

1.4. Product Information Marketing and Order Processing Special Conditions

In the event that an order containing such products has been placed, the Customer Support team will contact the customer in order to inform of the impossibility to proceed with the order.

- out-of-stock situations;
- failure to obtain payment authorization;
- the order has been found to be fraudulent.
All products, campaigns, promotions and offers are limited to the effective available stock and / or limited units determined for each campaign.

After contacting the customer and upon confirmation of the customer's intent, the shipment of the remaining products will be made. In case of one or more products in a pack, after contacting the customer for the purpose of confirming that situation, the pack will be withdrawn in full from the order.

In case the order contains a product for which there is no longer available stock and this product has been exchanged for ProzisPoints, that product will be withdrawn from the order and the remaining products will be shipped so as not to delay the delivery process. As a consequence, the corresponding ProzisPoints will be immediately refunded to the customer's account. The customer will also be informed of the change and of the refund of ProzisPoints.

This period shall only begin on the day on which the product is received at PROZIS premises, if the customer is responsible for the fact that the product was not collected on the date proposed by PROZIS.

1.6. Suggestions and Complaints
The customer's opinion is very important to PROZIS as it allows the implementation of improvements in the services provided. Thus, if, for any reason, customers are not satisfied with such services or with any of the purchased products, or, even, if they have any suggestions, PROZIS would appreciate any situation being reported, preferably by a message to Customer Service, within the 14th day from the date of delivery of the order, whether it has been made to customer or to a third party acting on their behalf.
If the customer has received a defective or damaged product, or if the product received is different from the one that the customer has actually ordered, video shall be attached to the complaint or, as appropriate, photographs on which the problem detected or the condition of the carton delivery box may be clearly visible.
The customer must also retain, until further notice from the Customer Service department, not only the defective, damaged or non-conforming product but also the respective delivery carton box.
If, at the time of delivery of the order, the external appearance of the carton box is not in perfect condition, customer shall reject the delivery under the penalty of non-acceptance of the complaint.
Remark: In the event, as a result of the positive assessment of a complaint, the customer is sent a product shipping coupon for a future order, that coupon must be triggered within the expiration date stated on the same as indicated in order to prevent a stock-out situation.

It can be accessed here or through the webpage https://www.livroreclamacoes.pt.
1.7. Alternative Dispute Resolution
In the event of a dispute, consumers may refer to the Alternative Dispute Resolution entities identified at Portal do Consumidor (www.consumidor.pt) or to the Online Consumer Dispute Resolution entities of the website indicates at https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr.
The currently available Alternative Dispute Resolution entities are:
What are ProzisPoints?
ProzisPoints are points that the customer earns when purchasing any product from PROZIS. Each product has been awarded a certain number of points.
How can I tell how many ProzisPoints can I earn with each product?
On the very page of each product, you can see the number of ProzisPoints associated with it. The number of points is on the right side of the presentation image, next to the price of the product.
What are ProzisPoints for?
ProzisPoints earned on each purchase will be accumulated in the customer's account for use on future orders, without having to exchange them on the next purchase.
Do ProzisPoints expire?
Yes, ProzisPoints are valid for 12 months and this period is calculated from the date the order has been placed.
How to exchange my ProzisPoints for offers?
After placing items in the Shopping Cart and proceeding to the "Finalize Order" stage, a page is displayed where the customer is informed of the total ProzisPoints available in their account. On this page (Stage 1 "Offers"), the customer may choose to save their ProzisPoints for the next or previous orders accumulated by the offers presented to them by selecting such option. The customer can select the offers and respective quantities according to the number of ProzisPoints available in their account by clicking on "ADD TO CART". This procedure of exchanging points for offers will always be limited to a maximum of 9000 convertible ProzisPoints per order.
After selecting the desired offers, the customer should click on "NEXT STEP" in the bottom right corner of the page.
How can I confirm that products exchanged for ProzisPoints will be shipped with the rest of my order?
When verifying the products in the Shopping Cart in Stage 4 "Confirmation", the offers obtained by the conversion of ProzisPoints will be marked "FREE", and therefore at no cost to the customer. If the selected offers do not appear as expected, the customer is advised to repeat the procedure. At the bottom of the page a box indicating how many ProzisPoints have been used in exchange for offers and how many ProzisPoints are accumulated for subsequent orders shall be displayed. If the customer removes offers from the Shopping Cart before completing the order, the corresponding ProzisPoints will be refunded.
What is the advantage of accumulating ProzisPoints?
The customer may choose to accumulate ProzisPoints until they have the required number of points to redeem for the most desired offer. A future ProzisPoints exchange will always depend on the minimum purchase of one product on the new future order.
How can I earn more ProzisPoints?
Customers can earn more ProzisPoints by commenting on the products previously purchased from the online store. For this purpose, the customer should write a brief comment about the product, alluding to its characteristics or quality level and then select the option Send, which will represent its explicit, informed and current consent to the possible publication of the comment. Thus, if the compliance of the comment with the internal guidelines established in this matter is confirmed, the same will be approved and published on the site. The customer will receive 15 ProzisPoints for each approved comment
What is the value of a ProzisPoint?
Each ProzisPoint is worth €0.01.
Where can I see detailed information about my ProzisPoints?
You can view your ProzisPoints accumulation and usage history through your PROZIS account. The customer should only, for that purpose, log in using the usual login details, then go to their personal area and view their history registries on the "ProzisPoints" tab. On that page, the customer can check which offers were exchanged by ProzisPoints, how many ProzisPoints have won with each product and its quantities ordered as well as the total amount of ProzisPoints available and currently being processed.
What does having ProzisPoints "in process" mean?
The meaning will differ depending on the payment method selected. If you chose to pay the charge, having ProzisPoints "in process" means that the delivery of the order in which the customer earned ProzisPoints has not yet been confirmed by the shipping company. ProzisPoints are available in their customer account as soon as the shipping agent confirms to PROZIS the delivery of the same and as soon as the order status changes to "Sent". If the customer has chosen another payment method, having ProzisPoints "in process" means that the order in which the customer earned ProzisPoints has not yet been shipped and invoiced. ProzisPoints become available in their customer account as soon as the order status changes to "Sent".
The offers that I traded for ProzisPoints were not included in the order. What happened?
If the customer deletes one or more products from the Shopping Cart after selecting offers in exchange for ProzisPoints, these offers will also be deleted and the respective ProzisPoints will be refunded. If the selected offers have not been included in the order, the customer should consult their ProzisPoints conversion history and check if the such ProzisPoints have been debited. If such ProzisPoints had not been debited, that should mean that the offers may have not been correctly added to the Shopping Cart and, as a consequence, have not been included in the order.
The ProzisPoints that I earned and exchanged for offers on a particular order are not in the ProzisPoints history. What happened?
This can happen for one of the following reasons:
- The order has been cancelled: the ProzisPoints used and accumulated in that order have been cancelled and are therefore no longer in ProzisPoints history.
- The order was returned to PROZIS: The ProzisPoints used and accumulated in that order were cancelled as soon as the order was placed in the warehouse and thus are no longer in ProzisPoints history.
- The customer has returned one or more products purchased from on that order: once the order return has been processed, the ProzisPoints earned for the purchase of those products have been voided and are therefore no longer in ProzisPoints history.
- The customer has received one or more damaged products: after the validation of the complaint by the Customer Service, the ProzisPoints earned on products purchased and / or exchanged for offers have been voided and are therefore no longer in ProzisPoints history.
- The customer did not receive one or more products from the order: after the validation of the complaint by the Customer Service, the ProzisPoints earned on products purchased and / or exchanged for offers have been voided and are therefore no longer in ProzisPoints history.
My ProzisPoints balance is negative. What happened?
This can happen for one of the following reasons:
- An order has been returned to PROZIS and the customer has exchanged the ProzisPoints accumulated in that order for offers in a next order: ProzisPoints of an order returned to PROZIS are voided upon receipt of the order at our premises. The ProzisPoints balance is updated as soon as the return process is complete. Therefore, if the customer places a new order and uses the ProzisPoints earned on the returned order, the balance will be negative.
- An order has been fully or partially returned and the customer has used part or all of the ProzisPoints earned from the purchase of that product (s) in the exchange of offer (s) on that same order: ProzisPoints earned on the purchase of a product are voided whenever this item is returned to our premises. Therefore, if the customer exchanges the ProzisPoints earned from this product for offers and subsequently decides to return the product, the ProzisPoints balance becomes negative.
Can I exchange or return products exchanged for ProzisPoints?
PROZIS does not accept exchanges or returns for products exchanged by ProzisPoints.
Can I exchange all of my ProzisPoints for offers in a single order?
Up to 9000 ProzisPoints obtained on previous purchases can be exchanged for on each order.
II - Privacy and Data Protection Policy
Browsing the PROZIS website and customer registration on the online store requires the acknowledgment and the acceptance of this Privacy and Data Protection Policy.
PROZIS maintains a constant concern for the protection of the privacy of personal data and a preventive action regarding the security of the site and the protection of the data of its customers and visitors.
To reinforce the guarantees of the confidentiality of personal data, new data protection measures were implemented, both in terms of verifying the legitimacy of the use of personal data processed as in terms of ensuring compliance with the rights granted to the data subjects. In this context, and through the specialization of customer support channels, PROZIS aims to promote a clearer and more objective communication of the purposes underlying the processing of personal data and the transparency of processing operations.
2.2. Types of personal data collected
In general terms, personal data are collected in three situations directly arising from PROZIS' activity:
2.2.1. User registration: PROZIS client account creation and data processing purposes
For the purpose of creating the customer account, a personal area is provided in which the customer must enter the data necessary for their identification as a customer. The first purchase will depend on the provision of additional personal data, indispensable for order processing and delivery.
Required fields on the forms available for those registration stages are marked with an asterisk (*).
PROZIS is committed to protecting customer data which will never be made available to third parties without the acknowledgment or consent of the data subject, as legally required.
PROZIS has entered into Confidentiality and Data Protection agreements with the companies of the business group to which it belongs, namely with PROZIS GROUP, S.A., tax no. PT509423272; PROZIS.TECH, S.A., tax no. PT504276638, PROZIS.COMMERCIAL, S.A., tax no. PT507107381 and VERYFEX, S.A., tax no. PT509838057, that provide the supporting services of sale and distribution of the online store products, as well as with every single company that render supporting services for the operationalization of the functionalities and applications that customers intend to use.
Besides that, when making a purchase on the site, customers will also be asked for their shipping address and payment details in order to promote maximum effectiveness and to ensure that the delivery times are met. Such data will be transmitted to the abovementioned companies of Prozis Group as well as to the carrier which will guarantee the delivery operation, all those entities being obliged to process such data in strict compliance with the GDPR key principles on the protection of personal data.
When processing a customer's order, it is possible that certain personal data - such as address and zip code - may be disclosed to third parties for the sole purpose of fraud prevention and detection and always following a request from the competent authorities. Such entities are also required to implement protection and security measures of such data.
Warning: For security reasons and for the protection of personal data, we recommend customers to destroy or struck through the label on which the data are printed, immediately after receiving the order, so as to prevent such data from being consulted by third parties after disposal of the packaging at recycling points.
For the effectiveness of the remaining functionalities made available by PROZIS upon customer's request, additional data may be collected. Such data will be subject to processing accordingly to the terms and conditions of use specifically laid down and made available for each functionality.
The data provided will be stored for the strictly necessary period, which usually corresponds to the period of existence of the customer account. For this reason, when the customer triggers the deactivation of their account, the personal data will be permanently deleted, except for the data necessary to comply with legal obligations, namely but without limitation, for billing and accountancy purposes. Such data will be stored in a database specifically created for such purpose and only for the time absolutely necessary. Likewise, on an exclusive database, the data regarding the transactions made by PayPal and Credit Card will be stored, respectively for six and twelve months. Such storage is made for the sole purpose of allowing future reimbursements due to customers during the said periods, from the date of issuance of the respective invoice.
Therefore, once the account has been deactivated, if customer wants to place a new order on the site, the customer must make a new initial registration, subject to the terms and conditions in force at that same date.
Warning: In the event that, after the expiry of the abovementioned time periods, a reimbursement shall take place and the account has already been deactivated, the customer shall contact the Customer Support, providing the new bank details by means of the presentation of an original and official bank statement. Only bank statements on which the customer is identified as the sole or main holder of the new bank account will be accepted.
Completion of customer registration will trigger a registration confirmation for the email address that the customer associates with the customer account and will include a hyperlink to this text.
Any functionality or platform that PROZIS may own and that the customer intends to use shall be conditioned to the acceptance of the respective terms and conditions of use as well as to, whenever specifically provided for, to the respective Privacy and Data Protection Policy. In all matters not covered by the before mentioned texts will be governed by, with the necessary adjustments, by the terms set out on the present document.
In regards to the accuracy of the customer's data and the respective registry, whenever the customer intends to verify the data provided to PROZIS, the customer may do so on their personal area. Customer should keep their account access data secure, as any action or request made through your account will be their responsibility, provided that the customer follows the customer identity validation procedures described below.
Prozis recommends customers not to store their password in their browser, as someone else with access to their computer can access their personal data.
For what purpose is the collected data used?
Customer data are processed in the context of actions such as order processing, customer's notification of any changes to site functionalities, surveys and the evaluation of interactions for statistical purposes.
Further information about the customer experience on the site may be collected for the sole purpose of improving customer service. However, this will only be done upon confirmation of the respective holder's acknowledgment or, where applicable, their express consent. For the purpose of assessing and certifying PROZIS' quality of service and responsiveness, information will be shared with entities specializing in this area, in particular with eKomi Ltd.; Trustpilot and Trustedshop.
Customers may, periodically and by email, receive information about products and services, campaigns, promotions and special offers. If the customer does not wish to be contacted for these purposes, the customer may unsubscribe from the newsletter by opting--out of the Manage Permissions tab in the account data area or by clicking on the hyperlink provided in the newsletter text for that specific purpose.
2.2.2. Customer contact with PROZIS
Whenever the customer, on their own initiative, contacts PROZIS in order to obtain information, regarding the products, purchase procedures, the status of the order or to report any situation related to the site or to any services provided, PROZIS may need to collect additional personal data for various purposes, which will be specifically communicated in this case, but which may generally fall under the circumstances of confirming the customer's identity and the purpose of the contact.
In order to ensure that the contact is actually being established by the data subject, PROZIS has implemented measures to reinforce the identity of the caller, especially in cases where the contact is established by telephone.
Thus, as from 25 May 2018, the operator will only proceed with the call after the clear and objective communication of the purpose, of the conditions of validation of the customer's identity and after the express confirmation, by the customer, of the intention to continue the conversation under such conditions. In this context, the customer may, for example, be asked to indicate one or more products purchased in previous orders, which the operator will do after requesting permission to access the purchase history of the last 6 (six) months. Alternatively, and after describing the identity validation mechanism, the operator may send an alphanumeric validation code to the telephone contact or email address registered in the customer's account which will be required by the operator at the beginning of the conversation.
Once the customer identity has been validated, the operator will ask key questions based on the description of the purpose of the contact in order to frame the situation and to eventually forward it to the adequate customer service operator.
Eventual recording of the call for the purpose of quality of service assessment will depend on the prior and express consent of the customer for this purpose.
For each communication established between the customer and the customer service and as soon as the situation that led to the customer's contact with PROZIS is considered resolved, the customer will be sent a message confirming the update of the complaint or the status of their request. Personal data associated with the initial contact will be retained for a maximum period of 36 months, after which it will be permanently deleted. In certain cases, upon completion of the process, a request for assessment of the service provided, with an optional reply, will be sent. Accordingly, and if the customer expressly consents, the customer's opinion on the level of satisfaction with the service provided will be stored. This specific registry will not imply the storage of any personal data, but only the level of satisfaction but using a proper pseudonymisation procedure.
Prozis may provide a Click-to-Call service through which Customers, by their own initiative and following the authentication on the store, may request a free call from a Prozis Customer Care Operator. For protection and safety reasons, the number from which the Customer will be contacted will be informed in advance, prior to the effective call.
2.2.3. PROZIS contact with the customer
When processing a specific order, there may be a need for PROZIS Customer Service to contact the customer in order to:
i) promote the confirmation or rectification of any of the personal data required to complete the delivery process (e.g. the delivery address). In such cases, contact will be made to the mobile phone number on the customer file. Once the connection has been established, the operator will confirm the caller's identity by following, if necessary, the procedure described on the clause 2.2.2. above.
ii) inform the customer that a message has been sent to his or her mailbox in the customer account as a result of the stockout of one or more items in the order concerned and that, as an alternative to unavailable products, the amount paid back or similar products may be returned, as provided for in the clause 1.4. of the General Conditions of Sale.
iii) request for clarification on the content of any message sent by the customer or regarding conversations already in progress. In either case, such contact will be followed by a written message confirming the content addressed and / or any fact eventually agreed upon.
