This is the privacy notice of My Staff Shop Limited . We are company number 7710593 registered in England and Wales . Our registered office is at 2 Park Plaza, Battlefield Enterprise Park, Shrewsbury SY1 3AF.
This is a notice to tell you our policy about all information that we record about you. It covers both information that could identify you and information that could not. It should be read in conjunction with our terms and conditions.
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.
1. The personal data we collect from you
My Staff Shop is a portal through which users access discounts from third party vendors.
In most cases purchases are conducted on the websites of third party sites (including microsites referred to below) which are subject to the terms and conditions including privacy policies of those third party vendors. However in a few instances My Staff Shop does function as a vendor. When you register an account with My Staff Shop and/or make purchases from My Staff Shop (including purchases made over the phone, or via this Website) we may collect the following personal data about you:
- your name, age and sex;
- your billing and delivery postal addresses, phone (including mobile phone), fax and e-mail details;
- where you have registered with us, your user name and password;
- where you place an order with us, your payment card details (phone only);
- your communication and shopping preferences;
- your browsing and shopping activities; and
- your date of birth.
We may also collect some or all of the above personal data about you when you access and browse this Website or any third party microsite (as described below). We may also collect some or all of this personal data from third parties who have your consent to pass your details to us.
2. How we may store and use your information
My Staff Shop (and third party data processors acting on our behalf) may collect, store and process your personal data:
- to make this Website available to you and to provide you with content which is tailored to your individual tastes;
- to maintain any registered account that you hold with us;
- unless you opt out, to contact you (including by SMS, push and e-mail) about promotional offers and products and services which we think may interest you;
- for customer satisfaction and market research purposes;
- to provide our goods and services to you and for associate purposes, including verifying your identity;
- for research, analysis, testing, monitoring, risk management and administrative purposes; and
- for any related purposes, or where we have a legal right or duty to use or disclose your information (including for crime and fraud prevention and related purposes).
My Staff Shop has partnered with certain trusted third parties to make available additional third party products and services to you:
Each of these third party products and services can be accessed online through the relevant third party's "microsite". A microsite is a website that is owned and operated by a third party but which is My Staff Shop branded and can be accessed from links on the main My Staff Shop Website. You can check the URL to see if you are on a third party microsite.
4. E-mail newsletter preferences and text alerts
All emails sent by My Staff Shop contain directions on how to unsubscribe from future correspondence.
We may also collect some or all of the above personal data about you when you access and browse this Website or any third party microsite (as described below), including when you sign up to receive My Staff Shop newsletters. We may also collect some or all of this personal data from third parties who have your consent to pass your details to us.
5. Website usage information
6. Financial information relating only to your credit cards
This information is never taken by us either through our website or otherwise. At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website of our Third Party Partners, or some other reputable payment service provider. That page may be dressed in our "livery", but it is not controlled by us. Our staff and contractors never have access to it.
7. Financial information about your direct debit or your credit cards
When you have agreed to set up a direct debit arrangement, the information you have given to us is passed to our own bank for processing according to our instructions. We do keep a copy.
We are registered under the direct debit guarantee scheme. (This provides for the customer's bank to refund disputed payments without question, pending further investigation. Direct debits can only be set up for payments to beneficiaries that are approved "originators" of direct debits. In order to be approved, these beneficiaries are subjected to careful vetting procedures. Once approved, they are required to give indemnity guarantees through their banks.)
8. Credit reference
To assist in combatting fraud, we share information with credit reference agencies so far as it relates to clients or customers who instruct their credit card issuer to cancel payment to us without having first provided an acceptable reason to us and given us the opportunity to refund their money.
