- We work closely with third parties providing services to us (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors providing technical, payment and delivery services related to the goods or services we provide to you, advertising networks, social networking platforms, analytics providers, search information providers) and we may also receive information about you from them;
- if you enter sweepstakes, special offers or contests sponsored by us or one of our business partners;
- In some circumstances related to a particular transaction, we may obtain data from public databases or credit reference agencies; and
- We may combine information that we collect about you from other sources with the information that you give to us directly. We may use this combined information as described in this policy;
C. How do we use personal data, and what is our justification for doing so?
We use your personal data for a variety of purposes related to the products and services that we provide.
We collect your data for the reasons listed below
The provision of products and services offered to you:
We use your data in this way because it is in our legitimate interests to do so (for example, it is in our interests to measure customer satisfaction and ‘troubleshoot’ customer issues) but we will always ensure that your rights are protected.
For advertising and marketing purposes, including to measure how effective our marketing is:
We rely on your consent to contact you directly about the products and services on offer on our site (for example, we may send you information of new vouchers published on our App via notifications of emails based on your consent). In other scenarios, we will rely on our legitimate interests as a business, always ensuring that your rights are protected. If you have agreed to receive marketing, you may always opt out at a later date. You have the right to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes or giving your data to other members of our group. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purpose, then please visit our email preference centre, a link to our email preference centre is included in the footer of every email that we send you.
For administrative and internal business purposes:
It is in our legitimate interests as a business to use your data in this way. For example, we have a clear interest in ensuring that our and and site works properly and that our products and services are high quality and efficient. We will always ensure that your rights are protected.
For security and legal and compliance purposes:
In some cases, we will need to use your personal data to fulfil a legal obligation (for example, if we receive a legitimate request from law enforcement agencies), and in other cases (such as the detection of fraud or ensuring the security of the site) we will rely on our legitimate interests as a business to use your data in this way.
International transfer of your data:
Whenever we send (or permit a third party to send) your personal data outside of Europe, we will make sure that we take steps necessary to protect your data as required by applicable laws. For example, we may implement specific contract terms or we may rely on service providers who adhere to certain compliance programmes overseas, or we may select service providers based in countries with strong local laws to protect your personal data.
D. How do we share your personal data?
We do not sell your personal information to anyone. We use the information we collect to customize our services for you, including providing recommendations, personalizing search results, and serving relevant ads and offers to you. While these ads and offers help fund our services, your personal information is not for sale.
Your personal data is only shared with trusted third parties for a specific reason, such as offering rewards specifically tailored to your personal preferences or usage, to facilitate payments, to enable the sending of emails to customers and suppliers, or to manage our sales process or the provision of customer services to you. The various ways in which we will share your data are set out below:
- Sharing data within our group: We are part of a group of companies that share various operations and business processes. We may share your personal data with any member of our group in order to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, or because it is in our legitimate interests to do so (for example, our legal function is provided by another group company which means that your personal data may be shared with our lawyers who are based in another group company).
We may also disclose personal data to other companies in our group and may use and share with those companies any information we learn from your interactions with us and from other companies in our group. Subject to acquiring your consent, you may be contacted by other companies in our corporate group by email, telephone, SMS and/or post with information and offers within the group.
- Sharing with merchants of the products and services we offer: We host offers on behalf of third party merchants on our website and, as such, we will share some information about you with the merchant when you purchase a voucher from us to be redeemed against the product or service offered by them. In almost all cases, this is because such sharing is necessary in connection with our performance of our contract with you, and in some other cases it may be in our legitimate interests to do this since this enables us and the merchants to provide you with competitive offers for a range of products and services and to prevent fraud. This also helps improve the services we and the merchants offer to you.
- Sharing with organisations providing services to us: We engage various third parties to provide services to us for specific functions, and this will often mean that we need to share your personal data with them (it is in our legitimate interests to do so, since we may not have the capabilities to provide these services ourselves). In each case, we will ensure that these third parties are only allowed to use your personal data in order to provide the relevant services to us. We will always make sure that we use organisations that we trust to look after your personal data appropriately and as required by applicable laws.
Some examples of these third parties will include: credit card processing services, order fulfillment, analytics, website management, information technology and related infrastructure provision, customer service, auditing, and other similar services.
- Sharing data with online advertising related service providers: We may from time to time work with online advertisers, social media platforms and advertising networks to deliver, tailor and measure advertising to you and others both on our app, website, and elsewhere on the internet (including on social media platforms such as Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter). We also use various tools and products which involve the sharing of data with the following to deliver, measure and tailor our online advertising.
The personal data that we allow to be shared with these third parties includes online identifiers such as IP address, data from cookies or similar technologies, or other device related information.
Similarly, we may share certain online identifiers with analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site.
You can choose not to allow your data to be used to deliver targeted advertising by changing your settings within social media platforms, or as described in the third party privacy policies set out above.
- Sharing data in connection with changes to our group structure or the ownership of our business: If we sell or propose to sell our business or part of it, we may need to disclose your personal data to prospective buyers.
Similarly, if there are changes to our group structure or if our ownership changes, we may need to disclose your personal data to the new owners or operators of this site or any of our apps as part of that process.
- Sharing data to comply with laws: There may be scenarios where we are subject to a legal obligation to disclose or share your personal data, such as with law enforcement agencies or public authorities in order to prevent or detect crime.
3. Security and retention of your personal data
- Security of your personal data: We take the security of your data very seriously and have put physical, technical and administrative strategies, controls and measures in place to help protect your personal data from unauthorised access, use of disclosure as required by law and in accordance with accepted good industry practice.
To help us keep your data safe please choose a strong, secure password and keep your password confidential and avoid sharing it with anyone.
