We enter into written contracts with any unaffiliated third-party data controllers requiring them to provide the same level or protection for Personal Data as we provide. We also limit their use of your Personal Data so that it is consistent with any consent you have provided and with the notices you have received.

  • we won't be able to register you on our website (we need to know who you are);
  • we won't be able to contact you if you have a query (as we won't have your name and contact details);
  • we will not be able to tailor the merchandise, gift cards and incentives we offer to you without your gender, age, date of birth, certain financial information; and
  • our website may not work properly on your device without the information about your visit.

WHERE IS MY PERSONAL DATA STORED? 

The Personal Data we collect about you may be transferred to and stored outside the European Economic Area (EEA), in particular in the United States of America (USA).  It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of the third parties with which we share Personal Data.

We comply with, and ensure that third parties with whom we share Personal Data comply with, the provisions of the GDPR and any other relevant data protection legislation to ensure that adequate protection is provided to any Personal Data which is stored or processed outside the EEA. You can ask us for a copy of the relevant safeguards implemented in relation to any such transfer outside of the EEA.

HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA SECURE? 

  • We maintain reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING AND PROFILING 

We use automated decision-making and profiling techniques to help us decide which survey questions to ask you, which adverts to show you when you use our website and which of our third-party advertisers to share your data with. This might be based on your economic situation or your interests. This means that the questions and adverts you are shown, and who your data is shared with, are determined without human intervention.

WHAT ARE MY PRIVACY RIGHTS UNDER THE GDPR? 

As a “data subject” under the GDPR, you have a number of rights (detailed below) which you can seek to exercise.  If you wish to exercise any rights you should contact us using the ways detailed in this Privacy and Cookies Policy. 

If you seek to exercise your rights, we will explain to you whether or not the right applies to you; these rights do not apply in all circumstances and are subject to, for example, our legal obligations, reasons of public interest and defence of legal claims.

  1. Right to withdraw consent. To the extent you provide consent to the processing of your Personal Data, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Your withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of our processing based on consent before your withdrawal.
  2. Right of access to and rectification of your Personal Data. If you would like to request access to, correction, amendment or deletion of your Personal Data, you can submit a written request here. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identify. In some circumstances we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of someone other than the individual requesting access.
  3. Right to erasure (or, “Right to be forgotten”). You can ask us to stop processing and delete your personal data in certain circumstances (for example where it was processed on the basis of your consent and you withdraw such consent or where it is no longer necessary for us to process it).
  4. Right to data portability. You can request to receive your Personal Data from us in a machine-readable, commonly used format of our choosing and/or have us transfer your Personal Data directly to another controller.
  5. Right to object to, or restrict processing. Where the processing of your Personal Data is based on consent, contract, or legitimate interests, you may restrict or object, at any time, to the processing of your Personal Data as permitted by applicable law. We may continue to process your Personal Data if it is necessary for the defence of legal claims, or for any other exceptions permitted by applicable law.
  6. Automated individual decision-making, including profiling. You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal or similarly significant effects on you, except as allowed under applicable data protection laws.

We will use best efforts to notify the third parties with whom we shared your Personal Data about any request for erasure, rectification or restriction you make to us, unless it proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Upon your request, we will share the list of recipients with you.
