    For example:
    If, by purchasing any of our products through the Website, you decide to activate the functionality of saving your card data for future purchases, we need to process the indicated data to activate and develop this functionality. Consent to enable this functionality allows your pre-filled payment data to automatically appear on subsequent purchases so you don’t have to re-enter it in each new process and, said data will be considered valid and applicable for future purchases. You can modify or delete your cards at any time through the payment information section of your registered user account on the Website.
