To help us to connect with our customers and run some of our marketing services, we use a marketing agency. Currently we use a company called Bewonder* Marketing (Bewonder*) to manage our marketing services for us. This means that they may handle Personal Data as a Processor (they are acting on our behalf and authorised to use the Personal Data in accordance with our instructions). This notice deals with our marketing activity and sets out what Personal Data we collect from you when you interact with our marketing agency and what we do with it. If you have any questions relating to how we use Personal Data about you, please contact us at the address above or by email at [email protected]

4. HOW DO WE USE THE DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND WHAT’S OUR LEGAL BASIS?
We may use the data we collect about you in the following ways:
- TO CREATE A PROFILE ABOUT YOU TO INFORM OUR MARKETING DECISIONS: We might do this to make sure we send you information which we think might be of interest to you, about campaigns we’re running and other events or discounts we’re offering (including surveys and information about goods and services which we think you’ll like and which seem to tie in with your interests). To do this, we may need to undertake analysis of your purchase habits and preferences. Once an account has been set up, profiling is an automated process which enables us to learn things about you. We set up the account on the basis that you have agreed we can use the information you provide us with for marketing purposes. You may ask us to delete your account at any time and we will promptly comply. You may set up a new account at any time.
- TO SEND YOU MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS: contacting you by email, SMS, push notifications in our app, social media (and potentially by other communication channels which may become available in the future) to provide you with competitions, deals and information about products and events). We are relying on you signifying your consent to us. You are entitled to withdraw your consent to all marketing or marketing via particular channels at any time and we will promptly comply with your request.
- TO PROVIDE SERVICES: for example, if you have provided us with your details so that you can receive particular services from us (such as signing in to wifi, taking part in a campaign, benefiting from a discount or taking part in a competition), we will use your Personal Data in order to make that happen. For certain campaigns and competitions, this may include transferring Personal Data related to you to a third providing the prize or whose goods or services are being promoted. If a transfer of this nature is required, we will publish the name of the third party recipient and let you know that the transfer is required before we do so. In this case, we are relying on the fact that such use of your Personal Data is required to provide you with the services you have requested. This may be a contractual obligation or based on you giving us your consent. You may let us know at any time if you want to pull out of a competition or stop receiving our services and we will promptly comply with your request.

For example we may need to retain back-up copies of data to make sure we have adequate safeguards in place to prevent loss of the data we hold; we may need to use your data to resolve disputes.
