Don't worry, GDPR is really
easy to get to grips with.
We'll keep things simple and explain to you what you should know...
There are new changes in European privacy law, this means all businesses now have to take greater care of your personal information and this includes how they collect, use and protect it. There have always been laws around data and on the 25th May, the current regulations are being refreshed and replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR for short).
At its heart, GDPR wants to better reflect the modern world we live in and make sure our personal information is kept safe and secure by businesses that use it. It's a good thing for all of us.
What is personal data?
From your name and address to unique account numbers, any information that can identify you can be classed as personal.
This information is used by a vast array of organisations from your employer storing your personal details at work, to how your favourite shop targets you with their promotional offers.
Under the new rules, businesses are now required to take greater care over your personal information and how it's used.
What does the regulation say?
The new regulation aims to put you in further control of your information. You now have additional rights & this includes the right to access the information
companies hold so you can understand what companies know about you. More information can be found in our privacy notice at the bottom of this page.
We keep your data safe
so there won't be any
Our commitment to keeping your information private and safe hasn't changed! Trust has always been of great importance to us and will continue to be.
We continue to review how we work and will always have your interests at heart.
As a result, we have updated our privacy notice to reflect our open and honest approach to how we collect and use your information. We have also created a new privacy hub to provide you with a simple guide to understand the recent changes that are taking place and what new rights you have.
Above all we want to be clear on our ongoing promise to keep your information safe.
In summary this policy explains how:
- We will be open about what data we collect
- We will be open about how we use it
- We will demonstrate to you how we take your privacy very seriously
Making our shopping
experience unique to you!
We want to provide you with the best possible shopping experience and using some of your information helps us to do that. By using your information, we can carefully select products and services that we think may be of interest to you rather than just send out lots of updates.
If you are a customer or signed up to hear from us, then we may communicate things like promotions, discounts, new product launches or sale previews to you via email or text. Here's a quick example of how this works.
This Christmas we were able to help thousands of our customers buy a leading Xbox bundle at the cheapest price on the market.
We were able to identify a group of customers who we knew were interested in buying an Xbox. Using this information we were able to contact those people with the best bundle at the best price using emails to communicate our offer.
Our customers secured the best product at the best price. We made it easy for our customers to find the right product and were effective in our marketing. It’s a win win.
