What data do we process?
In addition to your name and address, we may, where necessary also process other personal details such as telephone number, email address, date of birth, family names, names of pets and buying history. This information may be supplied directly by you or via a broker or other source such as the electoral register.
What do we use your data for?
We want to be sure that we only send you marketing information that is relevant to you. To do this, we may process your information both manually and automatically to determine whether a product may be of interest or to provide personalised content to you.
What is the legal basis for processing data?
We use legitimate interest as a legal basis for processing your data. This helps us to offer you relevant products. We also use the data for market research and analysis and developing statistics.
When and why do we share your data?
We may share your data with the following third parties:
- Governmental and regulatory bodies such as HMRC, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Information Commissioner’s office or other bodies for the purposes of crime prevention.
- Businesses who supply services to us such as debt recovery agencies, back up and server providers, IT software and maintenance providers or other back office functions.
- Carefully selected firms whose products may be of interest to you. We may share your email address and buying profile with Facebook to allow marketing messages to be relevant and timely. We may share your data with Direct Select (102) Limited, trading as UKChanges, to assist with maintaining the accuracy of personal data. We work with Epsilon Abacus (registered as Epsilon International UK Ltd), a company that manages the Abacus Alliance on behalf of UK retailers and the iBehavior Cooperative database from KBM Group. The participating retailers are active in the clothing, collectables, food and wine, gardening, gadgets and entertainment, health and beauty, household goods, and home interior categories. Members of the alliance share information including names, addresses and purchase information.
