We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation, which applies across the European Union (including in the UK).
Our data protection officer (or DPO) provides help and guidance to us to make sure we apply good practice standard to protect personal information. Our DPO can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about how we use personal information.
We may collect and use the following personal information about you:
This personal information is required to process your order and provide products to you. If you do not provide personal information we ask for, it may delay or prevent us from providing products to you.
We collect most of this personal information directly from you—in person, by telephone, text or email and via our website and apps. However, we may also collect information:
Under data protection law, we can only use your personal information if we have a proper reason for doing so, e.g.:
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests. The list below explains what we use your personal information for and our legal basis for doing so:
We may use your personal information to send you updates (by email, text message, and push notifications) about our products, including exclusive offers, promotions or new products.
We will always treat your personal information with the utmost respect and never sell or share it with other organisations outside the Quiz Clothing group for marketing purposes.
We will only send you promotional communications where you have consented to this. You have the right to opt out of receiving promotional communications at any time by:
We may ask you to confirm or update your marketing preferences if you instruct us to provide further products in the future, or if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.
We routinely share personal information with:
We only allow our service providers to handle your personal information if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal information. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers relating to ensure they can only use your personal information to provide services to us and to you.
We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations. For example, we may share information about suspected fraudulent activity on your account with the Police.
We may also need to share some personal information with other parties, such as potential buyers of some or all of our business or during a re-structuring. Usually, information will be anonymised but this may not always be possible. The recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations.
Information may be held at our offices and those of our group companies, third party agencies, service providers, representatives and agents as described above (see above: ‘Who we share your personal information with’).
Some of these third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area. For more information, including on how we safeguard your personal information when this occurs, see below: ‘Transferring your personal information out of the EEA’.
We will keep your personal information while you have an account with us or we are providing products to you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal information for as long as is necessary:
We will not retain your personal information for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this policy. Different retention periods apply for different types of personal information. Further details on this are available on request.
When it is no longer necessary to retain your personal information, we will delete or anonymise it.
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside the European Economic Area (EEA), e.g. with our service providers located outside the EEA.
These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law, because non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as the UK and EEA. We will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection law and all personal information will be secure. Our standard practice is to use standard data protection contract clauses that have been approved by the European Commission.
If you would like further information please contact our Data Protection Officer (see ‘About us' above).
Data protection laws give you a number of rights as set out below. If you would like to exercise any of your rights, please contact our DPO in writing, with details allowing us to confirm your identity.
We have appropriate security measures to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed unlawfully. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to access it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
