We may utilize your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage, and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services, and offers may be relevant to you (referred to as marketing).

Change of purpose

If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and explain the legal basis that allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.


We may need to share your personal data with the parties outlined below for the purposes specified in the table in paragraph 4 above.
Internal Third Parties (as defined in the Glossary below).
External Third Parties (Likewise).
Third parties to whom we may opt to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or assets. Alternatively, we may pursue acquisitions or mergers with other businesses. If such a change occurs in our business, the new owners may use your personal data in the same manner as outlined in this privacy policy.
We require all third parties to uphold the security of your personal data and to handle it in accordance with the law. We do not permit our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only authorize them to process your personal data for specific purposes and in accordance with our instructions.


Where applicable, we will ensure that your personal data is safeguarded by requiring all our group companies to adhere to the same rules when processing your personal data. These rules are known as “binding corporate rules.” For further information, please refer to the European Commission: Binding corporate rules.
Initially, we do not intend to transfer your personal data outside of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) and/or the European Economic Area (EEA).
However, future circumstances may necessitate the sharing of your personal data in a manner that involves transferring your data outside of the UK and/or the EEA. In such cases, whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK and/or the EEA, we will ensure a similar level of protection by implementing at least one of the following safeguards:
We will only transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission has deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data. For further information, please consult the European Commission website publications regarding the adequacy of personal data protection in non-EU countries.
When utilizing certain service providers, we may employ specific contracts approved by the European Commission, which afford personal data the same level of protection as in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.
When utilizing providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield framework, which obligates them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US. For further information, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.


We have implemented suitable security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorized manner, altered, or disclosed. Additionally, we restrict access to your personal data to only those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who require it for business purposes. These individuals will only process your personal data according to our instructions, and they are bound by a duty of confidentiality.
Furthermore, we have established procedures to address any suspected breaches of personal data and will notify you and any relevant regulator of a breach if legally obligated to do so.


We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider various factors, such as the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and applicable legal requirements.
By law, we are required to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial, and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.
In some circumstances, you can request us to delete your data: see ‘Request erasure’ in the Glossary set out below for further information.
Additionally, in some circumstances, we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes. In such cases, we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.


Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Please refer to the Glossary below to learn more about these rights.
No fee usually required:
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you:
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask for further information in relation to your request to expedite our response.
Time limit to respond:
We strive to respond to all legitimate requests within a reasonable period. Occasionally, it may take us longer than usual, particularly if your request is complex or if you have made multiple requests. In such cases, we will aim to notify you and keep you updated on the progress.

Your Legal Rights

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of your personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue processing it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing, where we may have processed your information unlawfully, or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Please note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
You have the right to withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, withdrawing consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. Please note that if you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
