You can also disable Push notifications in your account and on your device;

You can choose to enable or log into services via Facebook Connect or Apple Connect (“Social Media”).

If you do not want to share these data with us, you will need to adjust your privacy settings in your Social Media account. For more detailed information, please refer to your Social Media account terms and conditions, which govern how account data are collected and shared with us.

4. Statutory obligations

We may process your data in order to fulfil our statutory obligations. In some cases, we may use your personal data to process and resolve legal disputes, for regulatory investigations or compliance with applicable law, to enforce our terms of use or to comply with requests from authorities.

2. Information that we share with third parties

Data that we collect may be accessed by our service partners, operating as subcontractors, who provide administrative and technical services involved in achieving the aforementioned purposes (e.g. web hosting, payment services, ad tech, etc.).

We may disclose your personal information to law enforcement agencies, regulatory bodies, government departments and agencies, courts and other third parties, where we consider such disclosure necessary (i) under applicable law or regulations, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, and/or (iii) to protect your or any other person’s vital interests;

Shopmium will disclose your personal information to a potential buyer (and its staff and advisers) in connection with any proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of a portion of our business, on the condition that we notify the buyer that it must only use your personal information for the purposes indicated in this Privacy Policy;

Some of our partners may, as data controllers, collect data with your consent. These include the following advertising service providers:

We may share personal data that we collect from you with these companies. Items of data include your email address (in hashed, de-identified form), age and gender, IP address, mobile advertising identifier, browser or operating system information, data obtained from using our service (frequency of visits, categories of posts viewed, interaction with our offers and type of loyalty card). Please refer to their privacy policies (indicated above) for more information.

These partners may use your data to provide you with advertising based on your interests (or online behavioral advertising). These relevant advertisements may be served based on your activity on websites and apps you have recently visited and these partners may use third-party cookies to provide a more targeted advertising experience both on and off those websites or apps. Please see the Network Advertising Initiative website (www.networkadvertising.org) and the Digital Advertising Alliance website (www.abou tads.info) for more information.

When you use our mobile app, we may share with our partner LiveRamp and its group companies personal data about you, including your email address (in hashed, de-identified form), IP address, mobile device ID and timestamp. LiveRamp may use this information to create a link between your mobile and other information (demographic or interest-based information) that LiveRamp or its clients and partners may have collected about you in order to provide you with personalized content or advertising throughout your online experience. You have the right to exercise your rights under GDPR including object to the processing of your personal information at any time by clicking on this link: https://your-rights.liveramp.uk/home.

3. International data transfers

We may use and store personal information that we collect from you in countries outside the European Economic Area (including the United States of America, India and Madagascar). Please note that countries outside the European Economic Area are unable to offer the same level of data protection as the European Union.

Specifically, our Web servers are located in the United States and the European Union, and our group companies and third-party service providers and partners operate across the world. This means that when we collect your personal information, we can process them in one of these countries.

However, we have implemented appropriate security measures to ensure that your personal information remains protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This includes the application of Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission for personal data transfers outside of the EEA, which require companies to protect personal data that they process from the EEA in accordance with EU Data Protection Law and Regulations.

Our standard contractual clauses are available on request. We have put similar appropriate security measures in place with our third-party service providers and partners, and further details are available on request.

4. Your Data protection rights

You have the following rights over your data:

  • Right of access: You may contact us to find out what information we hold about you.
  • Right of rectification and erasure: You may correct your data and ask for it to be erased.
  • Right to restrict processing. You may object to our carrying out of certain processing actions.
  • Right of portability: You may ask us to forward items of your personal data in electronic format to you.

It should be noted, however, that the exercise of these rights is not absolute and may be restricted on legal grounds, or on the grounds of legitimate interest (e.g. customer disputes).

If you would like to access, correct, update or request the erasure of your personal information, you can do so at any time in your personal account space.

  • You can also object to the processing of your personal data, ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data, or exercise the right of portability over your personal data. You can exercise these rights by getting in touch using the contact details given via the “Contact Us” link below.
  • You may decide to stop receiving marketing communications from us at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in marketing emails that we send you.
  • Equally, if we have collected and processed your personal data with your consent, you can withdraw this consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent shall not affect the legality of all processing activity carried out before this date and any processing activity carried out on grounds of legitimate interest other than consent.
  • You have the right to contact the relevant data protection authority regarding our collection and use of your personal data.
  • If you live in France, you can also instruct us as to how we can continue to store, erase and share your information after you die and, where applicable, nominate an individual to exercise these rights after you die.

We respond to all requests that we receive from individuals who wish to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection law.

5. Automated decision-making

In some instances, the use of your personal information may involve automated decisions being made (including profiling) that affect you legally or otherwise significantly. Automated decisions mean that decisions about you are made automatically, based on the outcome of computer system processing (using algorithms), with no human input. For example, we use automated decisions to select offers that are most likely to interest you. We have put measures in place to protect the rights and interests of individuals whose personal information is used in automated decision-making.

When we make an automated decision about you, you have the right to contest the decision, state your position and demand a review of the decision by a physical person. You may exercise this right via the “Contact Us” link below.

6. Data retention

We keep personal information that we collect where we have a legitimate commercial interest in doing so (e.g. to provide a service that you requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

When we no longer need to process or retain your personal information, we will delete or anonymise this information, or, where that is not possible (e.g. because they were stored in backups), we will store them securely and place them beyond the scope of subsequent processing activity until it is possible to delete them.

7. Privacy of children on our sites

Shopmium will at no time collect personal information from children aged under 16 (sixteen). Sites and their content are targeted at individuals aged 16 (sixteen) or over. If you are under 16 (sixteen), you may not use our Sites unless you have the consent of a parent or guardian and are supervised.

8. Updates to privacy policy

While we continue to offer our visitors new types of content and services, the Sites may make changes to how we collect, use and/or share information. Should there be a major change to the way we collect, use and/or share information, this shall only apply to information collected subsequently, and we will take appropriate measures to notify you, based on the extent of the changes we intend to make.

9. Security statement

We take all appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data as best we can. The measures we take are intended to provide a level of security commensurate with the risk from processing your personal information. We operate secure data networks that are firewall-protected in accordance with industry standards, and password-protected against loss, misuse and modification of information under our control.
