Using Your Personal Data to Improve Your Online Shopping Experience
We want to make sure that we only contact you with online content that you will find relevant and interesting. For this to work effectively, we collect information about your browsing activity using Cookies when you are using our websites. These Cookies pass back to us your browsing information using your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address as the identifier, which we combine with other anonymised, non-personalised and aggregated data, allowing us to determine what content and product information is most relevant to you when you are shopping online.
We have a legitimate business interest to use the aggregated and anonymised data obtained via Cookies and other data sources to help us provide you with relevant product marketing and improve your online shopping experience.
Profiling is a term used to describe a form of data processing where significant volumes of data made up of lots of different data types – such as browser history from Cookies, transaction history, demographics and buying habits – are all used in an aggregated, anonymised and non-personalised form to evaluate and predict, based on statistical analysis, what you may or may not want to purchase from us. We use this technique to understand what drives you to buy from us and the types of products you are most likely to be interested in whether that be by email or social media. This is sometimes referred to as Big Data and Data Science and is widely used by retailers to improve their customer offering and Interest-Based Advertising.
