Information we collect automatically

Our Site may collect certain information about you automatically (such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system). We also collect information about the use of the Site (known as ‘analytics’) so that we can track user journeys, identify trends, and analyse viewing habits.

Personal information provided by third parties

Occasionally we may receive information about you from other third party sources (such as our suppliers, customers, or group companies), which we will add to the information we already hold about you in order to help us operate our business effectively.

For example, if the Site enables you to interact with third party social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter etc.), we may receive some profile information from those platforms to facilitate the interaction.

How we use your information and our legal basis for processing your information

We may process your personal information for a variety of reasons, including to:

  • display the Site and its functionality and enable your interaction with it;
  • provide content, communications or information you request;
  • respond to a request, order, enquiry or complaint you may have;
  • customise the Site and its content to your particular preferences; and
  • improve our Site and services.

In some instances, we will rely on your consent to process personal data and where we do this, it will be flagged to you at the time.

When we use your personal information we are required to have a legal basis for doing so. There are various different legal bases upon which we may rely, depending on what personal information we process and why.

The legal bases we may rely on include:

  • consent: where you have given us clear consent for us to process your personal information for a specific purpose;
  • contract: where our use of your personal information is necessary for a contract we have with you, or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract;
  • legal obligation: where our use of your personal information is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations); or
  • legitimate interests: where our use of your personal information is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party (unless there is a good reason to protect your personal information which overrides our legitimate interests).

If you have any questions regarding our processing of your personal information, and our legal basis for doing so, please contact us (see ‘How to contact us’ below).

We may disclose your personal data to:

  • other companies within our group to the extent that there is a legitimate interest in doing so to support our business aims;

  • law enforcement agencies in connection with any investigation to help prevent unlawful activity; and
  • a third party purchaser if we sell our business, in which case, customer and user information will be a transferred asset.

Keeping your data secure
