- We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes in accordance with our instructions.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. At times throughout your online journey on our website, you will be asked to accept or decline certain marketing features.
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased goods from us or if you provided us your details when you entered a competition or registered for a promotion and, in each case, you have opted in to receive that marketing.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers whereby we are legally obliged to do so. Where we have given you or you have chosen a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, including your account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password.
We have put in place appropriate security measures in place to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
No personal information will be transferred to a third party located outside of the EEA, unless we are certain that an adequate level of protection exists in relation to the processing of that information (e.g. model clauses).
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will inform you (before or when collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking or unchecking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data [or by logging into the website to adjust your marketing preferences or by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you]. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at email@example.com
You have the right to access information held about you as well as to request that information be deleted or corrected (as appropriate). You may also object to or request a restriction on our processing of your data. Where we are relying on your consent to process your data, you can withdraw that consent at any time, although withdrawal will mean that we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. You can exercise these rights at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) is the supervisory authority in the UK for data protection issues and will deal with all complaints about the collection and use of your information - for more information visit www.ico.org.uk/concerns/.
