Why we use your data (legal basis for data processing)
When we process personal data about you, we do so only as necessary to allow Vandylz to provide the services you use (i.e. to perform the agreement between us), to meet our legal obligations or to fulfil the so called ‘legitimate interests’ of Vandlyz, or in accordance with the other cases described in the section ‘How your information is used?’
To clarify, by legitimate interests, we mean lawful purposes that may be reasonably expected (protecting the security of the data we process, marketing Vandlyz services as well as ensuring our marketing is relevant for you, conducting anti-fraud checks). When we rely on the legitimate interest, we consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights. For other purposes, we will ask for your consent and you will be entitled to withdraw this consent for any future data processing at any time with no impact on the validity of the processing before your consent has been withdrawn by contacting us.
When we transfer your data outside the UK or the European Economic Area (hereafter referred to as the ‘EEA’), we do so on the basis of a variety of legal mechanisms, as described in ‘Trusted Partners’ and only ever in accordance with the Act and the GDPR.
How we handle your personal information
Personal information provided when opening an account or purchasing as a guest may be used to send marketing correspondence when you provide your consent to receive such correspondence from us by accepting our terms and conditions. You are free to withdraw your consent to such marketing materials at any time by selecting unsubscribe on any email correspondence you receive from us.
We will keep data that is associated with the services you use for the duration of the agreement to access the services. Following account closure, limited data that we collect about you will still be retained for an additional few years for tax, legal or accounting purposes.
If you contact us and don’t use our services, we will retain correspondence with you as long as necessary to assist you, followed by a period necessary for legal or accountability purposes.
For marketing purposes, we will store data as long as we have valid consent. If consent is withdrawn, we will delete all personal data without undue delay and no later than within 30 days from the moment we receive a request to unsubscribe.
How your information is used
Your data may be used for the following purposes;
To carry out our obligations arising from any agreements between you and us.
To provide you with marketing information (including personalised and targeted marketing emails), which we feel may interest you. For example, we may send you newsletters or emails about Vandlyz services (of course, this is optional and we will ask you for permission first).
To provide you with products or services that you request from us.
To communicate with the users of our services
To notify you about changes to Vandlyz services
To maintain, improve or modify Vandlyz services
To conduct competitions organised by Vandlyz (including contact with participants, evaluation of applications, distribution of prizes, payment of tax on prizes).

For tax, legal and accounting purposes
For the accountability purposes as defined by UK and EU legislation
To target and personalise our marketing communications, offers and advertisements that we display on our websites and services as well as those of third parties based on the combined data we have collected about you.
Calls to Vandlyz are recorded for accountability purposes. These call recordings are stored on a secure third-party cloud – Gamma, Horizon – these are then downloaded onto our secure internal network and deleted from Gamma’s cloud once per month.
If you apply for a vacancy within Vandlyz, we may use personal data about you to conduct social media screening prior to inviting you in for interview.
Whenever we’re personalising or targeting our marketing communications, offers and advertisements, we may profile your personal data, which means that we may use the data we collect to adjust the communication addressed to you to meet your needs. In such cases, we do not, however, use your personal data for profiling, which would constitute automated decision making that could affect your legal situation (ie. We do not use algorithms to make decisions which would have an impact on your individual legal rights or affect your legal status or rights under the agreement between us.)
If you decide that you no longer want to receive personalised offers, product recommendations from us or any advertising news at all, you can object to this service at any time.
We might process some aggregated and general non-personal data on user behaviour (eg. Sales per region) with third party partners who work with us to provide Vandlyz services to you (for example, with payment providers) in order to support, improve or amend Vandlyz services. We may also share non-personal data with data analysis services to help us run Vandlyz services.
Please remember that any communications you have via Vandlyz services may reveal details about you. Also, any data you post publicly using Vandlyz services will be publicly available to Vandlyz users and others. We are not responsible for your use of any private personal data which you choose to make available via Vandlyz services, or the activities of other users or other third parties to whom you give or make available your data.
