We use and combine Identity, Contact, Profile, Transaction, Financial, Technical, Usage Data and your Marketing and Communications Data to make our products and services, including The Cumulus Club site and app, and the offers and marketing you receive, better and more relevant to you, and to enable us to create content that is more suited to you - and send you more relevant communications.

Our basis: Contract; Legitimate Interest (improving The Cumulus Club services).

We work with online advertising businesses which use small files known as cookies to serve you with advertising that is thought to be relevant to you, based on your previous browsing habits.

Our basis: Legitimate Interest (in providing you with advertising appropriate to you from third parties).

for Our basis as specified in this Privacy Policy, and
address relevant legal, tax or accounting requirements, including potential claims by and against us.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of that data, the purposes for which we process it, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, as well as legal, taxation and accounting requirements.

You can request more details of how we apply these criteria by contacting our Information Officer by email at [email protected]

When the need to keep your personal data ends, we either delete or anonymise it.

If we transfer your personal data outside the United Kingdom to a country that does not provide a similar level of legal protection to that provided by the United Kingdom’s data protection laws, we put in place legally appropriate safeguards to require the protection of your personal data. You can request details of those safeguards by contacting our Information Officer by email at [email protected]

If we sell our business or assets, your personal data may be provided to the prospective purchaser’s advisers with appropriate legal protections and will be passed to the new owners of the business.

How do we keep your data secure?

We have put in place appropriate security measures intended to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have also put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Your legal rights

Under the law, you have the right to:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be in a position to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact our Information Officer by email at [email protected] You will not have to pay a fee to exercise any of your legal rights as specified above. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the relevant personal data (or to exercise any of your other legal rights). This is a security measure we take to help avoid your personal data being disclosed to a person who has no right to receive it.

We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to help speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

Cookies

Details of our cookie policy and the cookies used by The Cumulus Club are available here.

Password Security

Access to your Account is password-protected for your privacy and security. While we do our best to protect your personal information you also must protect yourself. What does this mean?

Keep your password or other access information secret.
Ensure no-one else uses The Cumulus Club while your machine is "signed in" to The Cumulus Club site or app.
Make sure you sign out from your Account when not using it.
Ensure that only you have access to the details of your payment account methods, such as Paypal or digital gift card, charitable donation, or bank account, which are intended to be kept secret.
 

Editing your Account and marketing communication settings

We like to keep in touch with our Account Holders so – where we are permitted to do so – we will use your relevant data to communicate our marketing to you.

Of course we know lots of marketing communications can be annoying, so we try to keep ours to a minimum. However, if you feel you're getting too many or would like more, you can change the settings in your Account at any time. We have a one click unsubscribe policy, and each communication gives you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving similar future communications. You can also review, change or correct your Identity and Contact Data by signing into your Account and going to the settings tab.

Please note there are some (non-marketing) communications that are an integral part of the The Cumulus Club service and cannot be opted-out of. These communications cover, amongst other things, changes to The Cumulus Club service and your transactions with retailers. They can be brought to an end by de-registering your Account.

Relationship with The Cumulus Club Account Holder Agreement

Words we use in this Privacy Policy have the same meaning as in The Cumulus Club Account Holder Agreement.

This Privacy Policy is correct as of 1st March 2021.
