3. PREPARATION OF PROFILES
As stated above at Pronovias we prepare profiles of the Customers who interact with us, creating a user or customer account containing all of the information gathered using the various data gathering channels both physical and online. The profile may be complete or incomplete depending on the type of interaction. We prepare these profiles on the basis of our legitimate business interests, which include knowing our customers and improving our services on the basis of their preferences and needs.
We set out below the various profile options depending on your relationship with us and any options you have selected:
3.1. Profile in store or customer service: We may ask you in our stores or by way of our telephone customer service to supply us with personal data, for reasons including maintaining a commercial relationship, providing personalised attention or handling bookings for appointments. For this we create a Customer file where we store all relevant information such as for example preferred styles of clothing, colours, whether you are interested in a wedding dress or a party dress, etc. This information helps us to adapt the service we provide and keep you informed of news or events in the stores you have visited (e.g. arrival of new collections or new colours, trunk shows or private sales, etc.), the store continuing direct mailing in addition to any information we send from Pronovias (e.g. by email if you have consented to this).
And if you visit our stores we may send you satisfaction surveys both on the quality of the service received and on our products. This helps us to improve on a day-by-day basis. These satisfaction surveys may be sent electronically even if you have not agreed to receive commercial mailings, as it is not advertising, it is the best way we have of ensuring we have given you the best in-store service in line with the quality standards of the Pronovias Group, and we thus have a legitimate interest in processing your contact and mailing data for these purposes. If you think the service was inadequate we may contact you by telephone or any other means of mailing you have indicated to deal with any incident which may have occurred during your visit to the store.
3.2 Online profile: The new technologies allow us to prepare much more precise profiles analysing not just the preferences you expressed in our stores but also the following:
- Information provided on booking an appointment, e.g. the date of an event, including your wedding; the type of environment in which the event or your wedding will be held; your preferences on the shape or neckline of the dress; your budget for the dress;
- Information provided at the time of creating a user account, e.g. identification or contact data or your address;
- Purchases you have made by way of our online store, by which we can deduce your style and preferences;
- Behaviour in the web site (content you access, type of dresses visited, favourite colours, how often you visit the website …), which helps us to understand what you like;
- Behaviour in relation to our newsletter (what type of content makes you click or open the newsletter; how often you open our communications, );
- Relevant information based on the dresses you include in the “My favourites” section (type of dress, colours, and other characteristics which help us to understand your preferences in our products).
These profiles may be combined when you contact Pronovias either by physical channels (visiting a store or customer service) or online via the website, app, social networks, etc.
3.3 Use of the information generated in user profiles: Any information we gather on our customers is used for various purposes which may be put in two main groups, (i) purposes relating to a personalised service adapted to our customers, and (ii) purely advertising purposes.
As regards personalised service knowing your preferences means that all of our Pronovias stores can anticipate your needs and hence offer added value in our services. For example knowing your dress preferences means staff can not just show you dresses which match those preferences (e.g. long or short party dresses, with a particular neckline or colour, etc.), if you have booked an appointment they can make a prior selection of all the dresses or products which might match, including available sizes and colours. If you have a coming event, particularly in the case of your wedding, knowing the date means we can see the dresses available for fittings and the availability of sizes and types of dress.
The generating of these profiles also allows us to improve our advertising as we can personalise and adapt the content of our advertising to your interests, the type of advertsing we send you or the regularity with which we send it.
For example if we know of your interest in our new collections we will inform you each time they are presented and put on sale. And if you have shown an interest in our events, for example the presentation of new collections, we can invite you to them also taking into account your location and where the presentation is being held.
All contacts can be made both electronically, as stated above, and by telephone, both directly from Pronovias by way of Customer Service and directly from the store, in order to inform you of the arrival of new dresses, confirm future visits or bookings or generally preserve our ties with you.
Personalisation of the content means we can ensure we send information which will be of interest to you. For example if we know you have a preference for long dresses we will prioritise news or promotions of this type of dress.
And depending on your interaction with us we can offer you special promotions, competitions or participation in events exclusively for customers.
In the following section on Mailings you can obtain further information on how we send mailings, the channels used and the platforms we work with to improve our advertising capacity.
All of the information contained in the Customer account, and therefore all information on your profile and preferences, is accessible by Pronovias stores, which use it to improve the personalised service at the store. All data is at all times the property of San Patrick, S.L.U., although the store, particularly in the case of franchises, may ask you for additional data for its own use during your visit to the store.
