- Using your personal information
5.1 Data protection, privacy and security are important to us, and we shall only use your personal
information for specified purposes and shall not keep such personal information longer than is
necessary to fulfil these purposes. The following are examples of such purposes. We have also
indicated below which GDPR justification applies, however it will depend on the circumstances of
each case. At the time of collecting we will provide further information, and you may always ask for
further information from us.
5.1.1 To help us to identify you when you contact us. This will normally be necessary for the
performance our contract.
5.1.2 To help us to identify accounts, services and/or products which you could have from us
or selected partners from time to time. We may do this by automatic means using a
scoring system, which uses the personal information you’ve provided and/or any
information we hold about you and personal information from third party agencies
(including credit reference agencies). We will only use your information for this purpose
if you agree to it.
5.1.3 To help us to administer and to contact you about improved administration of any
accounts, services and products we have provided before, do provide now or will or
may provide in the future. This will often be necessary, but sometimes the
improvements will not be necessary in which case we will ask whether you agree.
5.1.4 To allow us to carry out marketing analysis and customer profiling (including with
transactional information), conduct research, including creating statistical and testing
information. This will sometimes require that you consent, but will sometimes be exempt
as market research.
5.1.5 To help to prevent and detect fraud or loss. This will only be done in certain
circumstances when we consider it necessary or the law requires it.
5.1.6 To allow us to contact you by written electronic means (such as email, text or
multimedia messages) about products and services offered by us where:
126.96.36.199 these products are similar to those you have already purchased from us,
188.8.131.52 you were given the opportunity to opt out of being contacted by us at the
time your personal information was originally collected by us and at the
time of our subsequent communications with you, and
184.108.40.206 you have not opted out of us contacting you.
5.1.7 To allow us to contact you in any way (including mail, email, telephone, visit, text or
multimedia messages) about products and services offered by us and selected partners
where you have expressly consented to us doing so.
5.1.8 To keep you up to date with our member benefit scheme under which, as part of your
membership benefits, we will give you membership information and details of discounts
and offers we negotiate from time to time on behalf of our members. We will only do this
if you have told us that you would like this benefit.
5.1.9 We may monitor and record communications with you (including phone conversations
and emails) for quality assurance and compliance.
220.127.116.11 Before doing that, we will always tell you of our intentions and of the
specific purpose in making the recording. Sometimes such recordings will
be necessary to comply with the law. Alternatively, sometimes the recording
will be necessary for our legitimate interest, but in that case we’ll only
record the call if our interest outweighs yours. This will depend on all the
circumstances, in particular the importance of the information and whether
we can obtain the information another way that’s less intrusive.
18.104.22.168 If we think the recording would be useful for us but that it’s not necessary
we’ll ask whether you consent to the recording, and will provide an option
for you to tell us that you consent. In those situations, if you don’t consent,
the call will either automatically end or will not be recorded.
5.1.10 When it’s required by law, we’ll check your details with fraud prevention agencies. If you
provide false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we intend to record this.
5.2 We will not disclose your personal information to any third party except in accordance with this
Notice, and in particular in these circumstances:
5.2.1 They will be processing the data on our behalf as a data processor (where we’ll be the
data controller). In that situation, we’ll always have a contract with the data processor as
set out in the GDPR. This contract provides significant restrictions as to how the data
processor operates so that you can be confident your data is protected to the same
degree as provided in this Notice.
5.2.2 Sometimes it might be necessary to share data with another data controller. Before
doing that we’ll always tell you. Note that if we receive information about you from a
third party, then as soon as reasonably practicable afterwards we’ll let you know; that’s
required by the GDPR.
5.2.3 Alternatively, sometimes we might consider it to be in your interest to send your
information to a third party. If that’s the case, we’ll always ask whether you agree before
5.3 Where you give us personal information on behalf of someone else, you confirm that you have
provided them with the information set out in this Notice and that they have not objected to such
use of their personal information.
5.4 In connection with any transaction which we enter into with you:
5.4.1 If you provide false or inaccurate information to us and we suspect fraud, we will record
this and may share it with other people and organisations. We, and other credit and
insurance organisations, may also use technology to detect and prevent fraud.
5.4.2 We may need to transmit the payment and delivery information provided by you during
the order process for the purpose of obtaining authorisation from your bank or from
5.5 We may allow other people and organisations to use personal information we hold about you in
the following circumstances:
5.5.1 If we, or substantially all of our assets, are acquired or are in the process of being
acquired by a third party, in which case personal information held by us, about our
customers, will be one of the transferred assets.
5.5.2 If we have been legitimately asked to provide information for legal or regulatory
purposes or as part of legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings.
5.5.3 We may employ companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf and we
may disclose your personal information to these parties for the purposes set out above,
for example, for fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email,
removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data, providing marketing
assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links),
processing credit and debit card payments and providing customer service. Those
parties will be bound by strict contractual provisions with us and will only have access to
personal information needed to perform their functions, and they may not use it for any
other purpose. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with
this Notice and as permitted by the GDPR. From time to time, these other people and
organisations to whom we may pass your personal information may be outside the
European Economic Area. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that
your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Notice and the
