h) Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling.

You will always have the opportunity to opt out.
Third Parties (including, but not limited to: Google and Facebook) whose content appears on our website may use third-party Cookies, as detailed below in Part 14. Please refer to Part 14 for more information on controlling cookies. Please note that we do not control the activities of such third parties, nor the data that they collect and use themselves, and we advise you to check the privacy policies of any such third parties.
We use the following automated systems for carrying out certain kinds of decision-making. If at any point you wish to query any action that we take on the basis of this or wish to request ‘human intervention’ (i.e. have someone review the action themselves, rather than relying only on the automated method), the GDPR gives you the right to do so. Please contact us to find out more using the details in Part 15.
The following automated decision-making method(s) may be used:
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. Your personal data will therefore be kept for the following periods (or, where there is no fixed period, the following factors will be used to determine how long it is kept):
We will only store or transfer your personal data within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) and the United States of America (the “USA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. Within the EEA, your data will be fully protected under the GDPR. Where we transfer your data to a third party based in the USA, we will share the data with third parties who are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield. This requires that a third party provide data protection to standards similar to those in Europe. More information is available from the European Commission.
Your transaction data is stored within a high-security Data Centre in England. The Data Centre is ISO/IEC 27001 compliant and has perimeter fencing, CCTV coverage, 24- hour manned security and a strict Photo ID and swipe card entry system. Your physical payment card data is processed and/or stored by a third-party PCI Level 1 compliant Service Provider within the EEA.
We contract with the following third parties to supply certain products and/or services. These may include payment processing, delivery, and marketing. In some cases, those third parties may require access to some of your personal data that we hold.
If any of your personal data is required by a third party, as described above, we always take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law, as described above in Part 9.
If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR, as explained above in Part 9.
In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
11.1 In addition to your rights under the GDPR, set out in Part 5 when you submit personal data via our website, you may be given options to restrict our use of your personal data. In particular, we aim to give you strong controls on our use of your data for direct marketing purposes (including the ability to opt-out of receiving emails from us, which you may do by unsubscribing using the links provided in our emails and/or text messages
11.2 You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you from receiving unsolicited marketing. Please note, however, that these services will not prevent you from receiving marketing communications you have consented to receive.
You may access certain areas of our website without providing any personal data at all. However, to use all features and functions available on our website, you may be required to submit or allow for collecting certain data.
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 15. There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests), a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
We will respond to your subject access request within one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data, within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
