In addition, our servers, logs, and other technologies automatically collect certain information (see below) to help us administer, protect, and improve our services; analyse usage; and improve users’ experience. We share personal information with others only as described in this policy, or when we believe that the law permits or requires it.

How we use your personal information
We use your information in several different ways. The table below set this out in detail, showing what we do, and why we do it.
Who we share your personal information with
We share your data with the following categories of companies as an essential part of being able to provide our services to you:
For a list of our third-party suppliers click here. Some of those third-party recipients may be based outside the European Economic Area — for further information including how we safeguard your personal data when this occurs, see ‘Transfer of your information out of the EEA’.
We will not share your personal information with any other third party.
How long your personal information will be kept
We will hold on to your information for as long as you have your account, or as long as is needed to be able to provide the services to you, or (in the case of any contact you may have with our Customer Care team) for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only.
If reasonably necessary or required to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions, we may also keep hold of some of your information as required, even after you have closed your account or it is no longer needed to provide the services to you.
We may transfer your personal information to the United States of America [being the jurisdiction in which our customer service operations are hosted].
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is attached to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
All the information you provide will only be used for progressing your application, or to fulfil legal or regulatory requirements if necessary.
We will not share any of the information you provide during the recruitment process with any third parties for marketing purposes or store any of your information outside of the EEA. The information you provide will be held securely by us and/or our data processors whether the information is in electronic or physical format.
We will use the contact details you provide to us to contact you to progress your application. We will use the other information you provide to assess your suitability for the role you have applied for.
How long your personal information will be kept
We do not collect more information than we need to fulfil our stated purposes and will not retain it for longer than is necessary. Therefore, if you unsuccessfully apply for a role with us, we will delete or anonymise your personal information once we have communicated this to you. There may be circumstances in which we will retain your data for a future opportunity and if this is the case, we will seek your express consent beforehand.
The information we ask for is used to assess your suitability for employment. You don’t have to provide what we ask for but it might affect your application if you don’t.
Within the application stage, if you use our online application system, this will be collected by 3D MarComms a data processor on our behalf. We ask for your personal details including name and contact details. We also ask you about your previous experience, education, referees and for answers to questions relevant to the role you have applied for. Our recruitment team will have access to all this information.
You will be asked to provide equal opportunities information. This is not mandatory information – if you do not provide it, it will not affect your application. Any information you do provide, will be used only to produce and monitor equal opportunities statistics.
If we make you a conditional offer of employment we will ask you for information so that we can carry out pre-employment checks. You must successfully complete pre-employment checks to progress to a final offer. We are required to confirm the identity of our employees, their right to work in the United Kingdom and seek assurances as to their trustworthiness, integrity and reliability.
We therefore use your information in several different ways. The table below set this out in detail, showing what we do, and why we do it.
If you would like to participate in Clarks Moments, your personal data and information about your child (including their photograph) will be captured using Facebook Messenger on the ClarksKids Facebook page.
We will not process any information you provide us for direct marketing unless you give us your permission. However, to enable you to receive your Clarks Moments animation we will require you to provide us with the information set out in this privacy notice.

What we do with the personal information

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made many requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
