This Privacy & Cookies Policy explains the practices employed by Show Media Ltd in collecting and using your information and the ways in which you can influence these. This Privacy & Cookies Policy also relates to websites operated from time to time by Show Media Ltd.
What information do we collect about you?
Through Show Media Ltd websites you can, amongst other things enter competitions, subscribe to Brummell magazine’s printed edition, and subscribe to digital newsletters.
In order to process your requests and orders and other activities, we may have to collect personal information about you. This includes, but is not limited to: your name, address, email address, telephone number, credit/debit card, bank or PayPal information.
In addition, we collect technical information about your device such as what device you are using, as well as information about your visits to and your activity on our websites including the content (and any advertisements) that you view and interact with, the address of the website from which you arrived, the pages you view, the links you click, the length of your internet browsing session, your IP address and the approximate location at the time of browsing. Some of this information is collected using cookies or similar technologies.
How will we use the information about you?
We will use the information you provide to us to process your orders and requests. We may also use this information to communicate with you directly, for example to notify you about a competition’s progress or win, or to contact you in relation to an account you hold with us.
We will use the information we automatically collect about you to analyse web usage and compile aggregate statistics about our users. We may share this aggregated data with third parties after removing identifying information about our users.
Personalisation and advertising
Show Media Ltd may use your information to serve you personalised content, services and communications as well as targeted advertising on our websites, and selected partner websites (e.g. Facebook, Instagram or Twitter). We may do this by matching, combining or linking the different sources of information we hold about you (e.g. linking your contact or subscriber information with your activity across our websites or by linking your activity on our websites across all your devices using your email or social media log-in details) or by creating segments based on various factors such as your age and gender, your device details or your inferred interests. We work with data management platform providers to assist with this process.
We may share some of your information with advertisers, ad servers and ad networks to deliver targeted advertising both on our websites and on selected partner websites, but this will not include any information that directly identifies you. However, by interacting with or viewing an advert, you should be aware that the third party may make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the advert.
Where we have the appropriate permissions, we will use your information to market and advertise products and services from Show Media Ltd and its publications and properties, and occasionally third-party products and services that may be of interest to you including offers, advertisements, competitions or commercial communications by email or our websites or social media channels. You may be contacted directly by Show Media Ltd for these purposes.
You can always tell us that you wish to stop receiving direct marketing communications from us. If you would prefer not to receive direct marketing communications, simply let us know at any time by writing to email@example.com or Show Media, 1-2 Ravey Street, London, EC2A 4QP or by following the opt-out or unsubscribe instructions in the relevant communication.
What will we disclose to third parties?
We may pass your personal information to third parties to enable them provide you with a prize if you win a competition. Any third parties employed by us to process your data on our behalf are subject to contractual obligations to protect the security of your data in accordance with the terms of this Privacy & Cookies Policy. No data will be passed on to third parties without the consent of users of the website.
We may provide aggregate information to advertisers and business partners, including information relating to site traffic and web usage, to enable us to sell advertising and monitor the success of our business partnerships.
It is possible that Show Media Ltd could merge or be acquired by another business. If this happens we may share the information that relates to you. You will be sent notice of such an event. Show Media Ltd reserves the right to disclose personal information in order to comply with the law, applicable regulations and government requests. We also reserve the right to use such information in order to protect our operating systems and integrity as well as other users.
How do we protect your information?
Once we have received your data we will ensure that it is treated with the utmost respect and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and any applicable regulations.
