We collect and process data that relates to you (called "personal data") for the purposes of the following Upfeat Services:
We collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is put together in an aggregated and anonymous manner (so that your identity and personal data are not accessible) and does not constitute personal data for legal purposes. For example, we may aggregate your Usage and Transaction Data and (a) use it for internal management purposes, and (b) share it with current or prospective retailers. This type of information includes, for example, the types of product that the individual Account Holder purchases, the value of those purchases and the web, app, instore or other channels through which the purchases are made.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
You may give us your Identity and Contact Data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise. This includes personal data you provide when you:
As you use our Services, we may automatically collect Technical Data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. We collect this personal data by using cookies, server logs and other similar technologies. We may also receive Technical Data and Usage Data about you if you visit other services employing our cookies.
We may receive personal data about you from various third parties as set out below:
These are the legal bases we have for holding and processing your personal data:
Here is how we use your personal data, and our relevant legal basis (“Our basis”) for doing so:
When you register with us, we obtain your Identity and Contact Data. That Identity and Contact Data may be supplemented over time with other information, such as Transaction Data, and additional or updated Identity and Contact Data. We use this information to maintain your registration with us and administer our relationship with you. Our basis: Contract.
If you enter into a transaction through our site or app, or provide us with details of a transaction, we may use your Identity, Contact, Financial (Identifier Card) and Transaction Data to track your transaction and to receive and process Referral Fees. Our basis: Contract and Legitimate Interest (to receive payment of sums owed to us and you).
Where a claim or complaint is raised as to Cashback that may be owed, we may use your Identity, Contact, Financial and Transaction Data, as well as relevant Claims Data, to process that claim or complaint. Our basis: Contract and Legitimate Interest (to receive payment of sums owed to us and you).
We will also use Identity and Contact Data, Payment Data and Transaction Data to monitor purchases with the objective of helping to prevent fraud. Our basis: Legitimate Interest (fraud-prevention).
From time to time, you may participate in a survey or provide us with feedback or otherwise engage with us in ways that, in combination with other data we hold, may be included in your Profile Data. In using our websites and apps, we and our service providers will also collect Technical and Profile Data. We use and combine Identity, Contact, Profile, Transaction, Financial, Technical, Usage Data and your Marketing and Communications Data to make our products and services, including our site and app, and the offers and marketing you receive, better and more relevant to you, and to enable us to create content that is more suited to you — and send you more relevant communications. Our basis: Legitimate Interest (marketing our products and services to you and making our products and services more specific to you), Consent (where your consent is necessary).
When you engage with a retailer or our Associate, you may authorise us to communicate your Identity and Contact Data when you apply to or register with that retailer or Associate. Our basis: Consent
You may also consent to a third party — such as a retailer or Associate — providing us with Transaction Data concerning your purchase from the retailer or Associate, which we will combine with your Identity, Contact and Profile Data, in order to market other goods and services to you. For example, if you have booked a hotel through an Associate, we may be provided with details of your stay - which we may use to market car hire opportunities that we think may interest you. We only do any of this if you have permitted it by giving your consent to the retailer or Associate. Our basis: Consent.
We use Contact, Technical and Marketing and Communications Data about you that we receive as a result of marketing campaigns addressed to new or existing Account Holders to calculate commission due to the businesses that assist in performing the relevant marketing campaign and help us to analyse your use of our services. Our basis: Legitimate Interest (in the marketing, and understanding the use, of our Services)
We retain records of our financial transactions and contracts with you in order to maintain adequate accounting records and meet legal requirements. Our basis: Obligation.
We use Customer Service Contact Data, and your Identity and Contact Data, to deal with and investigate issues you raise with us, to communicate with you about them and (in the case of Customer Service Contact Data that we pseudonymise for the purpose) to improve our Services. Our basis: Contract; Legitimate Interest (improving our Services).
We work with online advertising businesses which use small files known as cookies to serve you with advertising that is thought to be relevant to you, based on your previous browsing habits. Gathered data is also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. Our basis: Legitimate Interest (in providing you with advertising appropriate to you from third parties).
We will only use your personal data for the above purposes, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. We may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent where this is required or permitted by law.
We keep your personal data for as long as is necessary:
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of that data, the purposes for which we process it, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, as well as legal, taxation and accounting requirements.
You can request more details of how we apply these criteria by contacting our Information Officer by email at email@example.com.
When the need to keep your personal data ends, we either delete or anonymise it.
We will share your personal data with members of our group of companies that provide services to group members, and to various third parties, but in each case always for the uses referred to above. These third party businesses are:
We may also disclose your personal data to government regulators and other authorities who legally require us to do so.
We may also share your personal data with others where to do so is mandated by applicable law.
Your Marketing and Communications Data will only be shared with a third party for the purpose of them directly marketing to you where you have consented to that marketing.
If we transfer your personal data outside the United Kingdom to a country that does not provide a similar level of legal protection to that provided by the United Kingdom’s data protection laws, we put in place legally appropriate safeguards to require the protection of your personal data. You can request details of those safeguards by contacting our Information Officer by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we sell our business or assets, your personal data may be provided to the prospective purchaser’s advisers with appropriate legal protections and will be passed to the new owners of the business.
We have put in place appropriate security measures intended to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, 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 personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have also put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Under the law, you have the right to:
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact our Information Officer by email at email@example.com. You will not have to pay a fee to exercise any of your legal rights as specified above. 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 the relevant personal data (or to exercise any of your other legal rights). This is a security measure we take to help avoid your personal data being disclosed to a 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 help speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
Our cookies don’t store sensitive information such as your name: they simply hold the "key" that, once you're signed in, is associated with this information. We use different types of cookies on our Site and we need you to consent to some of these cookies. The "Strictly necessary cookies" and "Functionality cookies" are required by us to operate the Site and are exempt from the requirement to obtain your consent. We ask for your consent for "Performance cookies" and "Advertising and Targeting cookies" and those cookies used by Affiliate Networks in the process of tracking your transactions from which you receive your cashback. However, if you'd prefer to restrict, block or delete these cookies from quidco.com, you can use your browser to do this. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your particular browser (or your mobile phone's handset manual), to learn how to change your cookie preferences. If you withdraw your consent by deleting all cookies on your devices and / or by changing the cookie settings of your browser or device, then some parts of our Site will not function correctly. This may mean you will not be able to claim any cashback.
Cookies are small files which are stored on your computer. They hold a modest amount of data specific to you and our Site. They can be accessed either by our systems or by your computer. This allows our systems to deliver a page tailored to you.
We use the following cookies:
Example of how we use strictly necessary cookies: Allowing you to sign in to the Site as a registered user.
Example of how we use performance cookies: Gathering data about visits to the Site, including numbers of visitors and visits, length of time spent on the Site, pages clicked on, or where visitors have come from.
Information supplied by performance cookies helps us to understand how you use the Site; for example, whether or not you have visited before, what you looked at or clicked on and how you found us. We can then use this data to help improve our services. We generally use independent analytics companies to perform these services for us and when this is the case, these cookies may be set by a third party company (third party cookies).
Example of how we use functionality cookies: Remembering if you’ve been to the Site before so that messages intended for first-time users are not displayed to you.
The two main ways we use Advertising and Targeting cookies are set out below:
Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.
When you click through to a retailer's website from our Site, your browser redirects via an Affiliate Network which stores a cookie on your computer. The cookie stores tracking information so that your visit to that retailer, via our Site is recorded. Any subsequent purchases you then make will result in the retailer reading this information. The retailer will then send us information about your purchase, at which point we can then credit your account with your cashback. We recommend that you enable cookies in your browsers to make full use of the Site in order to ensure that any purchases on third party sites are recorded.
Whilst the affiliate network cookie isn’t created by us, we want to tell you about it before you use our Site to make a transaction. By continuing to use our Site you agree to third parties such as Affiliate Networks and retailers featured on our Site to using cookies for the purpose of tracking and awarding your cashback.
The third-party companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies but we don't have access to these cookies other than allowing them to be served. We have no role to play in these cookies at all (although we may use information arising from these third-party cookies and subsequently improve the targeting of our advertisements).
We may include cookies on the Site that allow third party advertisers to present you with advertising on our Site based on interests inferred from your web browsing activity and your use of the our Site. To understand more about the cookies placed by third party advertising providers, please visit www.youronlinechoices.eu.
Retailers may place cookies on your device when you transact with them. Those cookies will be governed by the retailer’s own policies. We are not responsible for retailers’ or other third parties’ acts and omissions (including in relation to their cookie and privacy policies).
You should be aware that any preferences will be lost if you delete all cookies and many websites will not work properly or you will lose some functionality. We do not recommend turning cookies off when using our Site for these reasons.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can alter the settings of your browser to erase cookies or prevent automatic acceptance if you prefer. Generally you have the option to see what cookies you’ve got and delete them individually, block third party cookies or cookies from particular sites, accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is issued or reject all cookies. Visit the "options" or "preferences" menu on your browser to change settings, and check the following links for more browser-specific information.
To learn how to manage and remove cookies, please go to www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies.
Please note, however, that if you set your browser to reject cookies you may not be able to use certain aspects of our Site and Services - and will not be able to earn Cashback.
We like to keep in touch with our Account Holders so — where we are permitted to do so — we will use your relevant data to communicate our marketing to you.
Of course we know lots of marketing communications can be annoying, so we try to keep ours to a minimum. However, if you feel you're getting too many or would like more, you can change the settings in your Account at any time. We have a one click unsubscribe policy, and each communication gives you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving similar future communications. You can also review, change or correct your Identity and Contact Data by signing into your Account and going to the settings tab.
Please note there are some (non-marketing) communications that are an integral part of our Service and cannot be opted-out of. These communications cover, amongst other things, changes to our Service and your transactions with retailers. They can be brought to an end by de-registering your Account.
