However, some sections in the Website do require you to register, or use a username and password (e.g. to complete the on-line purchasing process).There are also certain services for which you must provide your data should you wish to use them (e.g. your data may be required if you wish to access the Newsletter services, contact us, share your “Wish List” with a friend, etc.) and you can request that these details be cancelled at any time by sending an email to the following address:privacy@ovs.es.
