We use this information to facilitate our operations and for other purposes described below.

  1. How does Lancaster collect information?

We and our service providers collect Personal Data and Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

When you visit our sites and services, we may send one or more cookies or web beacons to your device.  They enable us to store information about your device which helps us to provide you with a better experience when you browse or interact with us and also enhance the level of services, sales process and customer service functions provided by our teams. We also use third parties to serve advertisements on other websites that may be of interest to you and that relates to the information collected about your use of our services or communications with us and other websites. To do so, these companies may place or recognise a unique cookie or similar item on your browser.  Automated browser signals regarding tracking can be set, which may include ‘do not track’ instructions. Please review our Cookies Policy for more information about cookies.
  • Through Web beacons. Web beacons maybe be used alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your usage of the websites we operate, interactions with emails and sales documents from Lancaster, and to operate and improve our offerings. Web beacons are invisible electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on a visiting computer, such as (1) cookies, (2) the time a particular Website is viewed to the Web beacon, or (3) a description of a Web site tied to the Web beacon.

An IP Address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files and CRM whenever you access our website, along with the time of the visit and the pages that you visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice in our industry and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. Lancaster uses IP Addresses to calculate traffic and usage of our websites, help to diagnose problems with our servers, administer the sites, and monitor the regions from which you navigate to our services.  IP addresses can also be used for security purposes and to protect our systems from malicious attacks.
  • By Aggregating Information:  Aggregated Personal Data does not personally identify you or any other user of our site (for example, we may aggregate Personal Data to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular geographic area code).

In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, we may use your Personal Information to: (1) improve your browsing experience by personalizing the Websites and to improve our service offerings (2) send information to you and use advertising which we think may be of interest to you by post, email, or other means; (3) send you marketing communications relating to our business or the businesses of carefully-selected third parties which we think may be of interest to you, and (4) provide other third party companies with statistical information about our user base and to shape  future joint marketing communications.

We may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In addition, we may share data with trusted partners to contact you based on your request to receive such communications, help us perform statistical analysis, or provide customer support. If you do not want us to share your personal information with these companies, contact us at [email protected]

When you enquire about or request a service from us, or when we identify that you are a suitable prospective customer of our services, we may rely on our legitimate business interests to send you marketing communications (via post, email, telephone and other means). These communications will always be related to our services and we believe will be of interest to you. We will always provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of this. If you want to stop receiving direct marketing from us, you can use the unsubscribe mechanism on any email you receive or tell us directly when we call or contact you.

  1. How will Lancaster share Personal Data it receives?

We occasionally disclose Personal Data to our current or future group of companies for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. We also work closely with a selective set of partner businesses to market or sell products or services. We may also disclose Personal Data to our partners for the purposes described above in this document, as well as administrative and data security or control services. Some of our third-party partners co-sponsor other offerings with Lancaster. We may share Personal Data with these partner sponsors when you sign up for events or offerings to allow our partners to send you marketing or sales communications and also information that may be of interest to you, as permissible by law.

In some cases, we buy or sell businesses. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. We may have to disclose personal data to a third party in the event of any reorganisation, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer, or other disposition of all or any portion of our business or assets.

We use the data outlined in this policy to help us determine what products and services might be of interest to you and when you might be ready to make a purchase with us, our group of companies or a partner company. This can be based on, but not limited to, the websites, email, phone activities or published sales content that you interact with and links you use. No automated decisions are made that would result in legal effects or damage an individual.

Our legal requirements may cause us to release Personal Data as we believe necessary and appropriate to law enforcement, tax, fraud prevention, credit risk agencies and other companies and organisations.

  1. What does Lancaster do to protect data?

We use safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files and we authorise access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfil their job responsibilities. We enforce strict password security controls to prevent unauthorised access to our systems. We have also implemented organisational, technical, and administrative processes to protect Personal Data within our organisation and when transferring data outside of the European Union. While we take reasonable steps to secure your Personal Data from misuse, loss or interference, including unauthorised access, modification and disclosure, you should be aware no security procedures or processes are ever guaranteed to be completely secure from intrusion or hacking. There is therefore always a risk assumed by sharing Personal Data online with any company. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account with us has been compromised in some way, please immediately notify us on [email protected] or call our general phone number listed on this website.

  1. How can I access, change or correct any personal data held about me?

If you would like to access, correct, amend, remove or limit the use, or disclosure, of any Personal Data about you that has been collected and stored by us, or have it transferred to another organisation, please notify us at [email protected] so that we may evaluate and respond to your request in accordance with applicable law. If you would like to object to the processing of your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes, please contact our privacy team by our general phone number or email to [email protected] . You can also unsubscribe via the links provided in marketing emails. You may even inform us of your choice or tell us directly when we call or contact you.

For your protection, we only implement requests with respect to the Personal Data associated with the particular email address used to send us your request, and we need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will respond to privacy requests within 30 days. Please note that we need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting such access, change or removal.

  1. For how long will Lancaster hold my Personal Data?

We will retain your Personal Data for a period of time consistent with the original purpose of collection, including to pursue our legitimate business interests, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce applicable contractual agreements.
