Who we share your personal data with

We routinely share personal data with:

  • other members of our Group so that we can provide you with a high quality, personalised and tailored service (including relevant marketing) across our Group;

  • third parties we use to help deliver our services, eg payment service providers and delivery companies;

  • other third parties we use to help us run our business, eg marketing agencies or website hosts and IT and systems administrators, event management portal;

  • third parties approved by you, eg social media sites you choose to link your account to or third party payment providers;

  • our bank. 

  • We only allow those organisations to handle your personal data if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal data.

  • We or the third parties mentioned above occasionally also share personal data with:

  • our external auditors, eg in relation to the audit of our accounts, in which case the recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations;

  • our and their professional advisors (such as lawyers and other advisors), in which case the recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations;

  • law enforcement agencies, courts, tribunals and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;

The recipient of any of your personal data will be bound by confidentiality obligations.

Where your personal data is held

Personal data may be held at our offices and those of our third party agencies, service providers, representatives and agents as described above.

How long your personal data will be kept

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

Please contact us: dataprotection@aistores.co.uk if you want further information about how long we will retain your personal data. 

Transferring your personal data out of the UK or the EEA

We may share your personal data with external third parties based outside the UK. 

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data; or

  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved for use in the UK which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK. 

 

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the UK.
