How do we use this data?
When you enter a competition, prize draw or promotion, we collect personal data from you as part of your entry. We use this to administer our competition, to communicate results where relevant and to deliver prizes. When we use your personal data for these purposes, we do so because it is necessary for us to collect and use this information for the performance of our contract with you in accordance with our promotion rules.
If you are lucky enough to win a competition, prize draw or promotion we use your data in additional ways. Unless you ask us not to, we will make your surname and county of residence available: (a) on request to anyone who sends us a self-addressed envelope within 10 weeks of the closing date of the competition; and (b) to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) if they ask us. We do this because it is necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests in complying with the Code.
You have the right to object to our publication of this data. Please contact us as soon as possible, and within a week of receiving your winner’s notification if you want to object.
If we haven’t heard from you within a week, and we are asked to publish the information, we will do so. If you object later, we may have already published the information.
Where we are asked to disclose information to the ASA, and you object before we have disclosed the information, we will take into account your reasons for objecting although we may still be required to disclose this information, if for example, we are required to demonstrate that a valid award took place.
We also ask winners to agree to reasonable publicity and so we use winners’ names and other data provided as part of that publicity (e.g. photos) to publicise your win and our brand. We use your information in this way as it is in our legitimate interests to publicise the winner(s) but you can object to our use of this data at any time by contacting us as soon as possible after you hear that you’ve won.
How long do we keep this information for?
Information we hold in connection with the management of competitions, prize draws, and promotions is usually held for 6 years.
Who do we share this information with?
We share this data where necessary with our suppliers, service providers and professional advisers and as required by the Code.
Otherwise we will not share your information with any third party unless:
· we have your permission;
· we are required to do so by law;
· this is necessary in connection with the sale of our business or its assets (in which case your details will be disclosed to our advisers and any prospective purchaser’s advisers and will be passed to the new owners).
Where do we transfer this information to?
