Who is collecting the data and who is it shared with?
We hold your data and do not share it with any third parties other than set out below:
Our website uses Google Analytics to analyse how users interact with the site. This is fairly standard practice amongst websites and we assure you nothing untoward is going on! It helps us keep track of the number of visitors to Top Deal and spot popular deals and trends. You can read more about Google Analytics and the what/how/why at their website. We anonymise your IP address before sending it to Google Analytics.
We use a service called MailChimp to manage our email newsletter subscriptions. We share your email address and, if you provided it to us, your full name with MailChimp. This allows us to send you personalised emails. We also use MailChimp to let us know how people interact with our emails - e.g. if/when they're opened and what links are clicked. We use this information to try and improve our emails so they're as useful as possible.
