To provide or offer to you the Services, it is sometimes necessary for us to collect and process certain personal information (“Data”), including without limitation: name, address, date of birth, gender and other personal details, email addresses and mobile phone numbers, IP addresses, device and web-browser details, operating system details, activities on the Site, personal preferences relating to the Services, financial information, details of the locations from which you use the Services and other related information. You are responsible for ensuring that all Data and information you provide to us is updated and correct at all times. The Data will be stored together with any additional information you provide to us, and will be used to provide you with, and to improve, the Services. We may collect, store and process certain Data to provide you with the Services, to perform marketing and research related activities (including sending you newsletters and other updates about the Services), to supply other administrative services (e.g. setting up new accounts), to provide customer care and support and/or for other record-keeping purposes and to improve the Site and the Services (“Updates”). Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the lawful bases we may rely on for processing this information are: where you have consented before the processing; where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you; where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests; and/or where we need to comply with a legal obligation. All Data is processed by us in accordance with applicable data protection legislation and we will keep your Data only for as long as is necessary to provide the Services and/or the Updates. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.
We may, from time to time, expand or reduce our business which may involve the transfer of certain divisions or assets of our company to other parties, and Data, where relevant, may be transferred to such third parties. Additionally, we may, from time to time, share your Data with third party companies and individuals we use to facilitate our Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analysing how our Services are used (“Service Providers”). We may use Service Providers to display or distribute content on the Site, which may include analysis of Data and/or management of content and/or services generally. We require all Service Providers to respect the security of your Data and to treat it in accordance with the law.
From time to time we or our third party storage service providers may transfer Data to locations outside the UK, some of which may have different data protection laws to the UK or no data protection laws. In all such cases, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented: (i) we will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data; (ii) where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved for use in the UK which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK.
The Site may display links to certain third party websites. We encourage you to read the individual privacy policies of those third party websites before providing any of your personal information to them.
We may use ‘cookies’ while you access the Site. Cookies are also used to collect general usage and volume statistical information. We may also use local “shared objects”. Examples of other reasons include: enabling us to recognise your device so that you don’t have to give the same information to us several times; recognising that you may already have given a username and/or password; and/or, measuring how you are using the Services, to make the Services easier to use and to ensure sufficient capacity for quick delivery.
