Our Privacy Promise

We promise:

  • to keep your personal information safe and private
  • not to sell your data
  • to give you ways to manage and review your marketing choices at any time.

As well as our Privacy Promise, your privacy is protected by law.

Data Protection law says that we are allowed to use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so.

The law says we must have one or more of the following reasons:

  • To fulfil a contract we have with you, or
  • When it is our legal duty, or
  • When it is in our legitimate interest, or
  • When you consent to it.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. If we rely on our legitimate interest we will tell you what this is.

Transfer of your personal information outside the EEA

If we transfer information outside of the EEA, we will make sure that it is protected in the same way as if it was being used in the EEA. We’ll use one of these safeguards:

  • Put in place a contract with the recipient that means they must provide the same standards as the EEA.
  • Transfer it to organisations that are part of the Privacy Shield. This is a framework that sets privacy standards for data sent between the US and EU countries. It makes sure those standards are similar to what is used in the EEA.
