If we require your consent, we shall provide you with full details of the information that we would like and the reason we need it. Once given, you have the right to withdraw your consent again at any point and we shall be obliged to stop processing your data and delete it unless we can demonstrate that another legal basis applies.
Legal obligation: There may be situations where we need to use your information to comply with legal and regulatory obligations or defend claims. This includes publishing information about competition winners.
Legitimate interests: We process some of your data because it is in our legitimate interests to do so. Where this is the case, we have considered the impact that using your information may have on you and limited our use to only what is strictly necessary. Where we are using this as our basis, we can provide you with an explanation of why the processing is in our interests and you are free to contest this decision if you wish.
Examples of our legitimate interests processing activities include:
We use personal information for journalistic activities to support a free press and to support individual and societal rights to receive information.
Our websites may provide message boards, blogs and other user generated content facilities. Anything that you share will become public information. You should always be careful when deciding to disclose your personal information. Please see our Terms and House Rules for more information.
We monitor comments for offensive/objectionable content and disruptive behaviour that breach our Terms.
The i and Metro.co.uk use a commenting platform and moderation service provided by Spot.Im. In order to post a comment on The i and/or Metro.co.uk, you have to create an account with Spot.Im. Spot.Im will share your registration details back with us and we will be the data controller for any comments you submit, which we shall process in accordance with our legitimate interests and as necessary to provide you with our services in accordance with our Terms and House Rules.
Spot.Im also collects pseudonymous information via cookies in order to provide advertising services where you have consented to such data processing activities via your Cookie Settings.
By using our websites, apps and other products and services, we may process your information, including your name, phone number and email address, for the purpose of providing you with such products and services and managing our relationship with you, which shall include (without limitation):
We may also record phone calls or customer enquiries via online chat for quality, training and management purposes.
We may use your personal data (such as your name, email address, etc.) to provide you with digital event functionality and content, including recordings, user generated content and chat functionality. This may also include speeches or presentations, chat content, questions, poll results and audio-visual content incorporating your likeness, image or opinions.
This content may be retained and reused by us for later business purposes (for example for reuse at subsequent events or to allow webinar access at a later stage).
In accordance with your preferences and data protection legislation, we may use your information, including your name, email address, and phone number, to send you direct marketing communications, newsletters and to carry out marketing analysis.
This may include communications by email, post, telephone, SMS or app notifications about our products and services, events and special offers. This also includes browser push notifications where you have consented to receiving these. We may also send you periodic emails to inform you about the any changes to our products and services where we have permission to do so.
In relation to email marketing communications, we may send you such communications when we have your consent, or when you are an existing customer who has previously bought or subscribed to a similar product or service from us. You may opt out of email marketing communications when your personal information is first collected as part of that purchase or subscription.
You may also unsubscribe from receiving email marketing or newsletters at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email. If you unsubscribe from email marketing or newsletters, we shall keep your email address to ensure that we do not send you any marketing in future.
We use your information, including your UID, to provide you with a greater personalised experience when you visit or use one of our sites or apps, and for insight and marketing purposes.
We make assumptions and draw inferences about your interests based on the kind of articles and content you click on or read.
We use this information to segment our audiences into groups with attributes. This helps us show you more relevant content/adverts and helps our advertisers target more effectively.
Please note you have the right to object to profiling for marketing purposes at any time. If you wish to opt-out of having your personal information profiled for personalisation purposes, you can do so via the Cookie Settings.
Where you have given consent, we check to see if you have a cookie ID when you visit one of our properties. We are then able to compare the cookie ID we have to see if we know who you are. See Section 14 on Cookies for more information.
We allow partners to reach audiences on our platforms via data matching where they have appropriate permissions. We use your UID (together with other associated personal data such as email address) to carry out such data matching. This is conducted at an aggregate level or an individual level, depending on how targeted our partners want to reach audiences on our platforms. Your UID is stored with an independent third party data management platform (DMP) who will match UIDs with the data from advertisers with whom we partner. This matching is based on common identifiers (such as email address). This matching is completed using a data clean room where neither we nor the advertiser will have access to each other’s data.
The data overlap between our audiences and these partners is useful to understand if an advertising campaign would be effective.
As part of the matching process, we segment audiences based on predefined attributes. These audiences may be similar to our partners’ existing audiences and are therefore called “lookalike audiences”. For example, a female fashion brand may want to reach “women interested in fashion”. This helps them find the right audiences and we are able to show you more relevant advertising.
You may amend your settings in order to avoid UID matching taking place in the future by contacting us (see Section 17 below) or by adjusting your account settings.
Sometimes we allow advertisers to show advertisements directly on our website and apps, which are tailored to you based upon information they have obtained, such as your browsing history on their own websites.
Other times we shall arrange for our customers to be shown advertisements on our own or other websites or apps. These advertisements are tailored to you with information we have obtained from your browsing on our websites and apps via cookies.
Where we arrange for our customers to be shown advertisements, we use technological and contractual mechanisms to protect your cookie data and to ensure that your browsing data used for advertising is not used by advertisers or other website owners for other purposes, such as linking online behavioural advertising data with your contact details, unless you have provided the advertiser or other website with your express permission to do this.
When you are shown an advertisement, our advertising systems do not know who you are or your contact details (such as your name, email address or postal address).
Your IP address may also be used, in connection with our legitimate interests to tailor the advertising we arrange to be shown.
We may also target advertising on social media sites to specifically include customers who have registered for our products and services.
Where we provide services that utilise your device’s location, such as local weather or news, your location will be determined either from a lookup of your IP address in a “GeoIP” database which lists information provided by your ISP (usually your closest town or borough).
Sometimes we can collect the precise location directly from the device (such as through GPS or Wi-Fi on mobile devices) but only where you have granted permission for us to access this location information via your device settings. We use such information to provide you with a more tailored, relevant experiences when using our websites/apps.
Where you have granted permission to access your device’s location and consented to us to use your data for advertising purposes, this location information may be used to tailor the advertising you receive, including showing you certain advertisements when you are in the vicinity of a particular location.
We may use certain information (such as the websites that you visit and advertisements you see or click on and emails you interact with) to help us, advertisers and other promotional partners measure the effectiveness and distributions of their advertisements and promotions as well as the effectiveness of our own services and communications.
We collect information from your device to detect whether you’re using an ad blocker. This is to determine if we are able to show you advertising. As an advertising funded publisher, we rely on the ability to show you advertising.
We may use your information to monitor and improve our products, content and services. This may include (without limitation):
If you have registered on our websites or apps, we may analyse the information we hold on you in aggregate with our other customers to improve our advertising systems.
Your data will be disclosed where we are obliged to do so by law. We may also disclose your information in order to protect or enforce our rights or the rights of others and for the prevention and detection of crime.
If we have engaged you or the organisation you represent to provide us with products or services (for example, if you or the organisation you represent provide us with services such as IT support or financial advice), we will collect and process your personal data in order to manage our relationship with you or the organisation you represent, to receive products and services from you or the organisation you represent and, where relevant, to provide our products and services to others.
Where we are required by law to collect your personal data, or we need to collect your personal data under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that personal data when we request it, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. This may apply where you do not provide the personal data we need in order to provide the services you have requested from us. In this case, we may have to cancel the provision of the relevant services to you, in which case we will notify you.
Partners: When you purchase goods or services from us, we partner with specialist companies (including payment companies) to fulfil your order and provide certain customer services. This includes vendors on MailShop who you may have bought something from and specialist companies who assist us in obtaining ratings and reviews of product(s) and/or service(s), namely, YouGarden, Clifford James Consultants Limited, KH Direct Ltd, and Aspire Furniture Ltd.
We usually remain the data controller of your information and the other companies only process data under our instructions and cannot use the information for their own purposes. If one of our third-party partners acts as data controller of your personal data (whether or not as a data controller in common with us) we shall let you know before you register for the service.
Service Providers: We may pass your information to our processors – companies that we use to provide services on our behalf, for example for delivery services and prize fulfilment companies. These processors can only use your information in accordance with our instructions and for no other purpose.
Promotions: Sometimes we bring you promotions in association with other companies. If you enter such promotions, the other company will use the information you submit and we provide to them as a data controller in line with their own privacy policies. We shall let you know the precise arrangement at the time you provide your personal information.
Cobranded products / affiliate marketing: We regularly partner with industry affiliates to bring you special deals on products and packages you may find of interest. These include travel providers on MailTravel and financial service providers on MailFinance or This is Money. These providers collect marketing permissions for us and share data back with us about your purchases in order for us to measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
If you decide to book a holiday with an affiliate, use their advisory services or set up an account, or purchase a financial product, these affiliates will be data controllers of the information you have provided them in order to administer your relationship with them and will handle your information in accordance with their own privacy policies.
Functionality: We may share information about you with suppliers that we engage to help us provide our services and/or functionality of our websites and apps.
Advertisers: We may provide third party advertisers with reports containing aggregate statistical data about our websites’ and apps’ audience to determine the reach of their target audience. This aggregated information may include demographic data such as age range and/or geographic location of groups of our customers.
This aggregated data does not include contact details (such as names, addresses or email addresses) that can be used to personally identify you or contact you.
Online Behavioural Advertising partners: We allow third parties to collect and use information obtained during your browsing activities in order to deliver tailored advertisements to you. These parties are listed in our Cookie Settings tool where we provide you with their details, links to their privacy notices and the ability to opt out of their use.
We may provide Online Behavioural Advertising partners, including DMPs, LiveRamp and ID5, with a unique UID or information that could be used to (re)create one – such as a hashed version of your email address, and they can collect or receive information about your browser and device, such as type of browser, browser language, browser settings, cookie information, device type, operating system, IP address and ISP information. This can help our selected DMP match our UIDs with data belong to our partners by using a clean room where neither we nor the partner has access to each other’s data. This match is noted against our UID and use cases are established demonstrating lookalike groupings of potential interest to our partners.
This data sharing can also help partners continue to make advertising and site/app content relevant to users even if browser cookies are cleared, for example by re-creating deleted cookies (if you have consented to this).
Please note that ID5 may also use your user ID and/or internet activity information (such as browsing history) to provide, maintain and improve their services and products. This includes research and development activities (e.g. conducting machine learning to better optimise the efficiency of their products and services) and investigating, protecting against and deterring malicious activity (such as fake traffic). For further information, please see ID5’s privacy notice here.
To withdraw your consent for those cookies or to otherwise opt out of their services directly, please visit https://liveramp.com/opt_out/ and https://id5-sync.com/privacy/optout. You can also control their use on our sites, or opt out of all non-essential site tracking, via our Cookie Settings Tool linked to above. Our Cookie Settings Tool also specifies which partners rely on your consent and which partners rely on legitimate interests to use your data.
Marketing personalisation: We may match your data with data held by CACI, to add extra lifestyle and demographic insight information to your account with us which we then use to make our marketing more relevant to you (subject to your communication preferences and our internal policies and procedures). We can only obtain this information where they have your permission to share this information with us in line with their privacy policies. You can opt-out of having your personal information profiled in this way by contacting us, or our joint controllers, or adjusting your account settings. For more information about these activities and the data provided, and to opt out of their programmes directly, please visit them at CACI.
