All the information we collect from you is used to operate and improve the service we offer to you. We use such personal information collected through this website for the purposes of:

  • providing a personalised service;

providing you with information about, and access to, products and services we offer, either ourselves or jointly with or on behalf of other organisations.

We will not rent or sell your name, address, email address, payment card information or personal information to any third party without your permission. If you have purchased goods from us, subscribed to our newsletter, entered any of our competitions, or advised us of your postal address and phone number we may occasionally update you on news and special opportunities via email, post and phone.

Newsletters

We may offer free newsletters to share information with you about the website, about us and our affiliates and subsidiaries, or about our business partners and advertisers and sponsors. You may receive a newsletter either by registering for a particular newsletter or in conjunction with a special feature or membership for which you have registered on the website. You may cancel your free email subscription by following the instructions provided on the website or, in some instances, in the designated area of certain newsletters or emails.

We will not send you our own promotional emails without your consent. Any promotional email that you receive from us will also allow you to unsubscribe to further email promotions if you decide at a later stage that you no longer wish to receive emails with news and special offers from We Built This City.

Data Protection

Your personal information will be stored at facilities located in the UK. We Built This City Ltd will have no liability for disclosure of information due to errors in transmission or unauthorised acts of third parties. In addition, we may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of security or a physical threat to you or others.

We treat your personal information as confidential, complying with the UK Data Protection Act 1998. The personal information that we hold about you will be accurate and up to date.

Service Providers

We may retain other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf in relation to the purposes set forth in this privacy policy. Examples include credit/debit card validation and authorisation agencies, data analysis firms, customer support specialists, webhosting companies, and fulfilment companies (e.g. companies that coordinate mailings). Such third parties may be provided with access to your personal information if needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose.

Competitions and Surveys

From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to take part in competitions or surveys on our website. If you participate, we will request certain Personal Information from you. Participation in these surveys or competitions is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address). Your personally identifiable information may be used to contact you for winner notification, prize delivery confirmation or other related purposes. We may ask your permission to allow us to post publicly some of your information on the website, such as on a winner’s page, in the event you win a competition or sweepstakes. Except as required by applicable law, we will not post your information without your permission. We may decide to use a third party service provider to conduct these competitions or surveys. Any such company will be prohibited from using our users’ Personal Information for any other purpose unless you give your consent. The name of any such company will be visible on any page where you are invited to part with your information or views. We will never share the personally identifiable information you provide through a competition or survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice. In those cases where we are not the operator or host of the competition or sweepstake, we have no control over the information collected and accordingly urge you to review the advertiser’s or sponsor’s privacy policy applicable to the competition or sweepstakes before participating.
