We use this Personal Data to:
We will only process Personal Data for the specific purposes set out above or for any other purposes specifically permitted by the data protection legislation. We will notify you of those purposes when we first collect the data or as soon as possible thereafter.
We may, as a matter of law, and without requiring notice or consent, use your information for crime and fraud prevention, or systems administration within Woop and to monitor and/or enforce Woop’s compliance with any regulatory rules and codes.
For Personal Data to be processed lawfully, it must be processed on the basis of one of the lawful bases set out in the Regulation. These include, among other things, the data subject’s consent to the processing, or that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the data subject, for compliance with a legal obligation to which the data controller is subject, or for the legitimate interests of the data controller or the party to whom the data is disclosed. When sensitive Personal Data is being processed, additional conditions must be met. When processing Personal Data as data controllers in the course of our business, we will ensure that those requirements are met.
If we collect Personal Data directly from you as the data subjects, we will inform you about:
Where we are the data controller with regard to that data we will inform data subjects who our Data Protection Officer is, and how you can exercise your rights as a data subject, including the right to object to the processing of your Personal Data when it is processed based on legitimate interests.
Woop may make Personal Data available to the following parties for the purposes of supplying our services or as required by law:
We may also anonymise, aggregate, or combine any of the information we collect to analyse trends and provide statistical data to assist with forward planning of business operations.
We will take all appropriate, technical, legal, and organisational measures, which are consistent with applicable privacy and data security laws to safeguard your Personal Data. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any Personal Data you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us.
When we provide Personal Data to a vendor, the vendor will be selected carefully and required to use appropriate measures to protect the confidentiality and security of your Personal Data.
If you provide Personal Data to us regarding other individuals, you agree:
“Other Information” is information that does not reveal your specific identity, such as:
We and our third-party service providers may collect “Other Information” in a variety of ways, including:
The use of your Personal Data depends on the type of service we are providing and your relationship with our organisation. It may also be governed by the contract we have with the party for whom we are acting.
Our principal business activity is introducing car/vehicle-related services and products including Insurance. In the majority of arranging our services and activities, we need to process Personal Data.
Personal Data means information relating to an individual.
Processing Personal Data means operations (automatic or otherwise) such as collection, recording, adapting, altering, consulting, using, disseminating, transmitting, making available, storing, erasing or destroying the data.
A data controller is the organisation that alone or jointly with others determines the purposes, conditions and means of processing your Personal Data. Depending on our relationship with you or the relationship we have with your service provider, Woop can be the controller of your data and sometimes the processor.
If you do not provide us with your Personal Data we will not be able to provide you with our services.
The intended purpose of processing your Personal Data is to be determined by what service or product you are interested in Woop supplying.
The processing is generally needed to validate:
The manner in which we process data is generally governed by the contract under which we are appointed. We will not process your data for other purposes without obtaining your prior permission unless permitted or required by law.
At the outset of a requested service or purchase, we usually receive basic information about you from you, depending on the type of service or purchase you have made.
The data we gather about you largely depends on the type and nature of the service or product you wish to have or have already purchased. These include:
Name, address, age, occupation, lifestyle, internet profile, social media, credit status.
When acting for another party, we will only pass your Personal Data to them or their agents. However, we might also need to share Personal Data or at least some of it, with other parties involved with the service.
We might also disclose certain data where this is needed to assist other parties involved with supplying the services.
As part of the services we provide, we may need to analyse or process your Personal Data automatically to indicate the best way of delivering the service or product. However, any such profiling that concerns you or similarly affects you, will not be relied on exclusively without human intervention or taking other factors into consideration.
You have the right at any time to correct any inaccurate Personal Data we hold about you. We also want our records to be as accurate as possible so please advise us of any errors. However, please note that a difference of opinion or view is not necessarily inaccurate data and changes might not be possible. However, should you wish to express your own views, please provide details or a statement and we will add them to our records. Where this is required, please communicate the corrections or supplements.
You have the right to have your data deleted when it is no longer needed, which is known as the “Right to be forgotten.” However, we may have an obligation to keep records for audit, regulatory and/or legal purposes.
To meet these obligations, we keep records specified by those we are acting for. However, in certain circumstances we may be able to “Restrict Processing”. We might also be able to delete specific data or a document, for example where it has been sent to us in error and this will be done without undue delay.
You have a right to withdraw consent and object to processing your Personal Data in many circumstances. Should you wish to exercise your right, please put this in writing (email is acceptable) to us and we will act under “Erasure and your Right to be Forgotten.”
The law gives an individual the right to object according to their particular situation, where we are processing their data:
When requested we will restrict processing where:
In each case, we will inform you before any restriction is lifted. However, please note the following:
Under the GDPR, you have a right to receive your Personal Data by making what is known as a “subject access request” or SAR. In most cases, the information you want should be available without the need for making a formal SAR by making a request to us in the first instance. This will avoid possible delay of a formal SAR where the GDPR allows us a month to respond which may be extended by a further two months in complex cases.
Please also note that when responding to a SAR we are not obliged to provide data or a third party who has not given permission for it to be released. In certain circumstances, we might also be bound by confidentiality not to disclose information. Therefore, certain data might be withheld depending on the situation and the nature of the service purchased.
Should you wish to pursue a formal SAR, please inform us by email immediately. Alternatively, the request can be directed to the relevant Data Protection officer at Woop. In certain circumstances, your request may have to be redirected to an organisation we are acting for (where they are the data controller), in which case we will advise you of their contact details.
If you submit a SAR, we will advise you of the next steps within one calendar month.
Please be aware that our organisation may record telephone calls for training and security purposes.
Call recordings will be retained for limited periods depending on the service being provided, any particular contractual requirements with those we are working for and the technical facilities in place.
We will seek to respond to any request we receive in relation to your rights within one month. However, if this is not possible, we will advise you within one month that the time frame will be extended by up to a further two months and give an explanation as to why the extension is required
Our response to and any actions necessary for us to comply with a request by you in respect of any of your rights will be handled free of any charge to you. The only exception to this will be if the request is excessive or repetitive. If we do intend to make a charge we will inform you before proceeding with any actions we might take.
