HOW WE USE YOUR DATA
Our use of your personal data will always have a lawful basis, either because it is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data (e.g. by subscribing to emails), or because it is in our legitimate interests. Specifically, we may use your personal data in the following ways:

With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your data for marketing purposes which may include contacting you by email or SMS with information, news and offers on our goods and services. We will not, however, send you any unsolicited marketing or spam and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that we fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.
You have the right to withdraw your consent to us using your personal data at any time, and to request that we delete it.
We do not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

- we may make your personal data available to selected third parties who act on our behalf to support our operations (for example, card processing or payment services
- our IT suppliers and contractors (e.g. data hosting providers or delivery partners) may need to have access to your personal information to provide IT support and enable us to provide membership services and other goods/services available on this Site or to members
- if we sell our business or our company assets are acquired by a third party, personal data held by us about our members or customers may be one of the transferred assets
- if we need to disclose your personal data to comply with a legal obligation or to enforce our General Terms & Conditions, membership rules or other applicable contract terms that you are subject to

We may sometimes use third party data processors that are located outside of the European Economic Area (“the EEA”) (The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). Where we transfer any personal data outside the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the internet or public communications networks can never be completely secure. We will take reasonable and appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data that you submit to us.
HOW CAN YOU CONTROL YOUR DATA?
In addition to your rights under the GDPR, set out above, when you submit personal data to us via email, via our Site or otherwise, you may be given options to restrict our use of your data. In particular, we aim to give you strong controls on our use of your data for direct marketing purposes (including the ability to opt-out of receiving emails from us which you may do by unsubscribing using the links provided in our emails, at the point of providing your details and by contacting us).
You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you receiving unsolicited marketing. Please note, however, that these services will not prevent you from receiving marketing communications that you have consented to receiving.

You have the right to ask for a copy of any of your personal data held by us (where such data is held). Please contact us for more details using the contact details below. Alternatively, please refer to our Data Protection Policy.
