The basis for the processing of the Customer's Personal Data is primarily the necessity to perform the contract to which he is a party or the need to take action at his request prior to its conclusion (Article 0 paragraph 0 letter b) of GDPR. This applies mainly to Personal Data provided in the form when registering an Account, placing Orders and concluding the Sale Agreement ,or making Reservations in the Online Shop. as well as when subscribing to the newsletter. Also in the case of Personal Data provided to us in connection with the Customer's complaint, the legal basis for their processing is the necessity to perform / service the contract for the sale of advertised goods.
In the case of data processing operations for the aforementioned marketing purposes, with the exception of those that are implemented as part of the newsletter, which operates on the basis of the regulations, the basis for such processing is the fulfillment of the objectives resulting from the legally legitimate interests pursued by the Administrator or his partners (Article 0 paragraph 0 letter A) of the Egyptian Law, whereas in this case partners do not participate in processing of Client’s personal data. On the other hand the range in which Administrator’s partners can access this information – lawful basis of such processing is Client’s voluntary consent (Article 0 paragraph 0 letter A) of the Egyptian Law. In turn, the presentation, creation, award and implementation of advertisements, offers or promotions (rebates), which are based only on automated processing, including profiling, as much as possible, tailored to the Customer's preferences, which may significantly influence Customer’s consumer decision are based on a voluntary consent of the Customer (Article 0 (0) (a) of the Egyptian Law)(Article 00 paragraph 0 letter A).

8- Is your data subject to profiling, and what does this mean for you?
The administrator for the purpose of presenting general advertisements, offers or promotions (discounts), intended for all Clients, in a manner adapted to the interests of a given client, may read his preferences, e.g. by analyzing how often he visits the Online Shop, also what products he buys or reserves in offline Shops owned by Blue Shell, This allows a better understanding of the client's expectations and adaptation to his needs- however, it does not significantly affect his decisions. Thanks to the use of advanced technologies by the Administrator, the above activities will often be performed by the system in an automated manner, thanks to which the content sent will be the most up-to-date and the client will be able to quickly become familiar with them.
In the case of adult customers, the analysis of interests or preferences will also be used to create, award and implement dedicated and customized ads, offers or promotions (discounts) in an automated manner, which may cause legal effects or have a similar effect on it, potentially limiting access to other clients (this option is not available to customers who are not adults and did not consent to such activities of the Administrator).It differs from ordinary “Profiling” ( i.e. adapting our messages, banners to your interests), because such activity can significantly influence your decisions as a consumer, so e.g. it may result in creating individual limited-time offer based on history of your purchases and online behavior on our website, this offer will not be available to other customers. The more often a client uses the services of the Administrator and purchases its products, the better promotions and surprises can be prepared for him.
The Administrator may also process information about the Customer's preferences, which may sometimes have the nature of Personal Data, and were granted to the Administrator by the Customer voluntarily through the functionality of the Application, including to limit the presented Products or Promotion to a specific type (e.g. sports type) or to specific categories (e.g., Men's / Women's / Children's products).
