- Business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you.
- Our suppliers, reward partners, and sub-contractors that help us deliver you our marketing and rewards schemes (such as Club 64) and contact you about products that might be of interest to you.

9. WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the UK and European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the UK and EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.
Whenever we undertake such transfers, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to your personal data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- the recipient country that has been deemed by the UK to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data; or
- where an adequacy decision has not been provided with respect to a recipient country, we rely on the standard contractual clauses as approved in the UK (or equivalent clauses as adopted and approved by the European Commission, where applicable).
In some occasional circumstances, we may rely on a derogation to the data protection laws that apply to transfers of personal data to third countries. For example, if such transfers are based on your consent or necessary for the performance of a contract between us.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data to third countries.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
10. DATA SECURITY
Once we have received your information, we will use appropriate procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access, and to prevent your information being accidentally lost. We limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
11. HOW LONG WE WILL KEEP YOUR INFORMATION
We will only keep your information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To decide the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your information, the purposes for which we process your information, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
You can contact us and ask us for details of the retention periods for different aspects of your personal data in case you want to learn more.
In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
12. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your information which we have listed below.
- Request access to your personal data (known as a “data subject access request”).
This right entitles you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you. It also entitles you to receive certain information on how we use your personal data and to check that we are lawfully processing it. We will usually provide your personal data to you in writing unless you request otherwise. Where your request has been made electronically (e.g. by email), a copy of your personal data will be provided to you by electronic means where possible.
- Request correction of your personal data where there is incomplete or inaccurate information.
This right entitles you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected. We always take care to ensure that the information we hold about you is accurate and where necessary up to date. If you believe that there are any inaccuracies, discrepancies or gaps in the information we hold about you, you may request to change your personal details anytime by contacting us.
- Request erasure of your personal data.
This is sometimes known as the "right to be forgotten". It entitles you, in certain circumstances, to ask us to delete or remove your personal data. These circumstances include, for example: (a) where we no longer need your personal data for the original purpose we collected it for; (b) where you have exercised your right to withdraw consent; (c) where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below); and/or (d) where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal information to comply with local law.
Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure. Whilst we will assess every request, there are other factors that we will need to take into consideration. For example, we may be unable to erase your information if retention of your personal information is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with our legal obligations; (b) meet our legal obligations; (c) resolve disputes; (d) maintain security; and/or (d) prevent fraud and abuse.
- Object to processing of your personal data
This right entitles you to object to our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. It applies where we process your personal data based on our legitimate business interests. In some cases, we may refuse your request to object to our processing of your personal data. This is in circumstances where we can demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your personal data which outweighs any prejudice to your rights and freedoms.
- Request restriction of processing your personal data
This right entitles you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following circumstances: (a) if you want us to establish the accuracy of your information; (b) where our use of the information is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the information 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 information but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- Request transfer of your information to you or a third party.
This right entitles you to request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party in certain circumstances. 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 processing carried out by automated means which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
- Right to lodge complaints regarding the processing of your personal data with the Information Commissioner’s Office or other relevant supervisory body. Please see https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/ for how to do this.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call us on 0800 169 2891 or write to us at Customer Contact Centre: Freepost CUSTOMER CONTACT CENTRE, PO Box 8, Crewe, CW1 6GF
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 these circumstances.
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 your information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
