Why we collect this information
We will only process the data we collect about you if there is a reason for doing so, and if that reason is permitted under data protection law. We will have a lawful basis for processing your information: if we need to process your information in order to provide you with the service you have requested or to enter into a contract; we have your consent; we have a justifiable reason for processing your data; or we are under a legal obligation to do so.
Where we need to in order to provide you with the service you have requested or to enter into a contract, we use your information:
· to enable us to provide you with access to the relevant parts of the Sites;
· to supply the services you have requested;
· to enable us to collect payment from you; and
· to contact you where necessary concerning our services, such as to resolve issues you may have with your order.
We also process your data where we have a justifiable reason for doing so— for example personalisation of our service, including processing data to make it easier and faster for you to place orders. We have listed these reasons below:
· to improve the effectiveness and quality of service that our customers can expect from us in the future;
· to tailor content that we or our or advertising partners display to you, for example so that we can show you activities and services which are in your area or make sure you see the advertising which is most relevant to you, based on characteristics determined by us;

We will also analyse data about your use of our services from your location data to create profiles relating to you and for you. This means that we may make certain assumptions about what you may be interested in and use this, for example, to send you more tailored marketing communications, to present you with activities and services that we think you will prefer, or to let you know about special offers or products which we think you may be interested in. This activity is referred to as profiling. You have certain rights in relation to this type of processing. Please see 'Your Rights' section below for more information.
Where we are under a legal obligation to do so we may use your information to:
· create a record of your order(s);
· comply with any legal obligation or regulatory requirement to which we are subject.
