MARKETING

We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. We have established the following personal data control mechanisms:

• PROMOTIONAL OFFERS FROM US

We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).

You will only receive marketing communications from us if you have opted in to receive marketing information from us or, being an existing customer, if you have not opted out of receiving such information.

• OPTING OUT

You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by Contacting us at any time.

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of purchasing a product.

• COOKIES

When you take your journey through our website, we may store some information on your computer in the form of a helpful file known as a “cookie”. This is a common method used by almost every website you visit, and many websites will not function at all without the use of cookies. To find out more about cookies in general, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

Cookies are not viruses and will not harm your computer, and we do not use them to store personally identifiable information such as credit card details. We do, however, use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of our website. For example, they can help us to identify and resolve errors and other problems that affect your experience of using our site. For further information about the cookies we use, please see our Cookies Policy.

• CHANGE OF PURPOSE

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

6. DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table in paragraph 5 above.

  • Internal Third Parties as set out in the Glossary.
  • External Third Parties as set out in the Glossary.
  • Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

7. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

We do not share or transfer your personal data outside of the EEA. If this changes we will update this privacy policy accordingly.

8. DATA SECURITY

i-Wonder takes the security of your data very seriously as do our insurance partners, who all have their own security policies.

• Security measures and staff confidentiality
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed (Industry-standard secure sockets layer (SSL) 256-bit encryption technology to ensure that all your personal and financial information is encrypted before transmission). In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

• Padlock Icon 
When the closed padlock icon appears at the bottom right or top of your browser, you are in a secure area of our website. Our powerful security measures are intended to safeguard your privacy from unauthorised access or improper use and we will continue to update our security measures as new security technology becomes available.

• Data breach procedure
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

• No liability for third party security
i-Wonder is not and cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of our partners and their websites or other services that you may use but that we do not control. We request (but cannot insist) that our partners show the same commitment to security and also offer SSL encryption throughout their quotation process wherever possible, but if you access a third-party website using a link from an i-Wonder website we recommend that you check their security policy during the visit.

• Password protection
There are several ways that we can help you if you forget your password. The most straightforward is to simply click the ‘forgotten password?’ link that appears just below the box into which you would type your password, complete the details and we will email your password to the address you have us previously. If you have changed your email address, you will need to contact us and we will guide you through the rest of the process.

Don’t forget that internet based communications are not secure unless they are encrypted, which means you shouldn’t put sensitive information in an unsecured email or webmail (most email and webmail services are not encrypted). The nature of the internet means any communications may route through many countries.

We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information that is beyond our control.

9. DATA RETENTION

HOW LONG WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

11. GLOSSARY

LAWFUL BASIS

Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.

Comply with a legal or regulatory obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.
