This list is not exhaustive and sometimes we may need to collect additional data for the purposes set out in this Notice. Some of your personal data is collected directly, for example, when you make a purchase on our websites or enter a competition. Other personal data is collected indirectly, for example, your browsing or shopping activity
We work, from time to time, closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub- contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies) who provide services to us and may receive information about you from them. In particular, all payments are provided through a trusted third party payment service provider. We may also collect personal data from third parties who have your consent to pass your details to us.
How your information is used?
Depending on how you are interacting with us, we (and trusted partners acting on our behalf) use your personal data:
To fulfil contractual agreements between you and us (for example when you place an order for products through our website)
To manage any registered account(s) that you hold with us
To verify your identity
To respond to a query and manage other customer service interactions with you
To send you information about our products by post
For market research purposes – to better understand your needs
To provide you with a personalized browsing experience when using our website
To send you details (by phone, e-mail or SMS) of promotional offers and products and services which we think may interest you, where you have consented to this (and have not withdrawn such consent)
To let you know about and invite you to events
To administer competitions we run from time to time
We may also use your personal data:
For crime and fraud prevention, detection and related purposes
To comply with legal and regulatory requirements
To assess, operate and improve our website, the services provided through it and customer services
Where we have a legal right or duty to use or disclose your information (for example in relation to an investigation by a public authority or in a legal dispute)
We may also use your information to create anonymous data (whereby you cannot be identified) for market profiling purposes which may be used by us.
We will not share your information with third parties in order for that third party to provide direct marketing communications to you, unless you have provided your consent for such use. Such third parties will have their own policies relating to the way in which your information may be used.
In order to make certain services available to you, we may need to share your personal data with some of our service partners. These include IT, delivery, marketing service providers and analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimization of our website and customer service.
We only allow our service providers to handle your personal data when we have confirmed that they apply appropriate data protection and security controls. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers relating to data protection and security, which mean they can only use your data to provide services to us and to you, and for no other purposes.
Legal Basis for Using Your Information
We are allowed to use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so. This includes sharing it with third parties in certain circumstances. The law says we must have one or more of these reasons:
To fulfil a contract, we have with you
When it is our legal duty
When it is in our legitimate interest
When we have your consent
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. For example, we will use your information to action an order you have placed on-line on our website on the basis that this is a legitimate interest and is necessary to fulfil the contract.
In general, we only rely on consent as a legal basis for processing in relation to sending direct marketing communications to customers via email or text message.
Customers have the right to withdraw consent at any time. Where consent is the only legal basis for processing, we will cease to process data as soon as we can after consent is withdrawn. Please see the Contact section below.
How long do we keep your data?
We will not retain your data for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice. Different retention periods apply for different types of data.
We may share your personal information with any other companies in Kae Aspen and other companies in Kae Aspen may share your personal information with us in order to fulfil a contract we have with you or when it is in our legitimate interest.
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA) which may have lower standards of data protection. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the 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. By submitting your personal information, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice. If we do transfer information to our agents or advisers outside of the EEA, we will make sure that it is protected in the same way as if it was being used in the EEA. We’ll use one of the safeguards below.
Transfer it to a non-EEA country with privacy laws that give the same protection as the EEA. Our standard practice is to use ‘standard data protection clauses’ which have been approved by the European Commission for such transfers. Those clauses can be accessed here.
Transfer it to organisations that are part of Privacy Shield. This is a framework that sets privacy standards for data sent between the US and EU countries. It makes sure those standards are similar to what is used within the EEA.
