How do we collect information from you?
We obtain information about you when you use our website, such as when you contact us about products and services, or when you sign up to and participate in a programme provided by us to your Local Authority.
What type of information do we collect?
The personal information we might collect from you includes your name, email address and postal address. It may also include information regarding what website pages are accessed and when.
As part of a scheme provided by your local authority you may also provide sustainability information including which materials you have recycled etc. We will make it clear to you what information you can provide to us and it is your decision whether or not to do so.
How is your information used?
We may use your information to:
- Administer the scheme, including sending weekly reminder emails requesting your participation data;
- Seek your views or comments on the services we provide;
- Deal with entries into a competition;
- Send you monthly updates about the programme provided to you by your local authority;
- Notify you of changes to our services;
We believe that these forms of communication are an intrinsic part of ensuring that your engagement in the scheme works efficiently and that we can communicate to you on your activity in the scheme and any rewards that you have earned. Having considered this, we therefore believe that this is a legitimate interest to communicate with you in this manner and such interest is genuinely not overridden by your fundamental rights as a data subject.
You may opt-out of any email communications by using the ‘unsubscribe’ link within each email, contacting us at [email protected]
or by calling us on 0207 326 5055. Please be aware that unsubscribing from the weekly reminder email may reduce your ability to effectively participate in the programme. You can manage your email subscription preferences in the ‘Subscriptions’ section of your account, reached by clicking the ‘My Account’ button in the top right hand corner once you are logged in.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for the duration of the contract that your local authority has negotiated with us. At the end of any such contract, the data will be passed to your local authority for the purpose of integration with a replacement programme.
Certain pieces of information will be passed to your local authority in the course of the administration of the scheme, including the date you registered for the scheme, your name and your address. Other data that will be passed to your local authority includes aggregated engagement data with your individual actions not identifiable.
In some cases, activities that you take part in may necessitate that your contact details are passed to your local authority, but we will make it clear to you that this will happen before you provide the information.
We may also be required to pass your contact details onto voucher providers in order to supply a prize to you. What data we share will be made clear to you at the time of winning a prize.
