It is important that you read this policy together with any other privacy notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. Personal data, or personal information, means any information about a living individual from which that person can be identified (directly or indirectly). It covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). This privacy notice supplements the other notices and is not intended to override them. If you are using our websites, your acceptance of this policy is deemed to occur upon your first use of the sites.  This policy applies where we are acting as a data controller with respect to your personal data; in other words, where we determine the purposes and means of the processing of that personal data. Among other things, this policy explains: 

1.2.1. What personal data we may collect about you in connection with: providing you with our services; your online interaction with us (including via,, or any other website we own/operate, via email, or via social media); any other interaction between you and us through any other channels  related or ancillary to the foregoing, (collectively, the “Channels“); we collect, store, disclose, transfer, protect and otherwise process that personal  data (and for what purposes); and 

1.2.3. other important information, such as the lawful bases by which we process your  personal data, how long we might retain your personal data, and the rights you have in  relation to personal data we hold about you. 

1.3. This policy supplements (and its terms apply in addition to) any other terms of use or other terms and conditions agreed between you and the Company from time to time. 

1.4. In this policy, terms defined in the UK GDPR, including “data subject”, “personal data“, and  processing“, have the same meaning when used in this policy. The words “include”, “including”, “such as” and similar words and phrases shall be construed to mean including without limitations”. 

1.5. This policy is intended to be communicated to you in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible manner, but we appreciate that you may have queries or want to seek clarification as to its terms. If so, please email or write to Data  

Protection Enquiries, Tap In Media Ltd, Peter House, Oxford Street, Manchester, England, M1 5AN and we will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.

5.2. Whilst we may be able to provide you with certain products and services notwithstanding  your refusal to submit personal data, this may limit your ability to participate in some  activities or features or your use of certain online services or functionality. 


  1. Sharing information with affiliates and third parties

6.1. We will not share any of your personal data with third parties except as set out in this  paragraph 6 or otherwise notified to you or agreed between you and us from time to time. 


6.2. We may share personal data with our group companies and partnered companies (together, “Affiliates“) in order to provide our services to you and for the other purposes  outlined in this policy. We may also share personal data with 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 policy.

  1. International transfers of personal data

7.1. From time to time it may be necessary for us to transfer your information internationally. In  particular your information may be transferred to and/or stored on the servers of our  Affiliates or other third parties identified in paragraph 6 which are based outside of the  EEA. Transfers to external parties based outside the UK are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the UK. We will take additional steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and will be fully protected under the Data Protection Legislation and/or to equivalent standards by law. Transfers of personal data to the EEA from the UK are permitted without additional safeguards.

7.2. However, we will not transfer your personal data outside of the EEA unless: 

7.2.1. such transfer is to a country or jurisdiction which the EU Commission has approved as  having an adequate level of protection. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries; 

7.2.2.appropriate safeguards are in place as set out in Article 46 UK GDPR or equivalent  provisions of subsequent Data Protection Legislation; or 

7.2.3.the transfer is otherwise allowed by applicable Data Protection Legislation (such as in the form of a derogation under Article 49 UK GDPR or by using specific approved contracts which ensure the same levels of personal data protection that apply under the Data Protection Legislation. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries). 


By giving us your personal data, you agree to these arrangements. Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data internationally.


  1. Your rights as a data subject

8.1. Subject to any conditions or requirements set out in the relevant Data Protection Legislation, you may have some or all of the following rights in relation to the personal data  we hold about you: 

8.1.1.the right to request a copy of your personal data held by us (commonly known as a “data subject access request”) and to check that we are lawfully processing it; 

8.1.2.the right to correct any inaccurate or incomplete personal data held by us. You can deactivate your account, or amend any personal data which cannot be modified online,  by emailing us at 

8.1.3.the right to request that we erase the personal data we hold about you. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request; 

8.1.4.the right to request that we restrict the processing of your data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it; 

8.1.5.the right to have your personal data transferred to you or to another organisation. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you; 

8.1.6.the right to object to certain types of processing of your personal data by us where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms; and 

8.1.7.the right to withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. 

8.2. Please note however that these rights are not absolute in all situations and may be subject  to conditions and provisos set out in relevant Data Protection Legislation. The Company cannot therefore guarantee that any request from you in connection with the rights set out above will be agreed to. For further information, or to see if you can exercise any particular right, please contact us at 

8.3 You also have the right to ask us not to continue to process your personal data for marketing purposes. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

8.4 We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

8.5 We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. In the case of subject access requests, normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within one month. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.

8.6 If you require any information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in paragraph 12. Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.


  1. Storage and retention of your personal data

    Data is stored and contained via the web-based infrastructure of third-party platforms (described in section 2), with limited access by required personnel only and password encryption where necessary. Cross-platform integrations are used where necessary (between platforms described in section 2). 

9.1. We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. Data is retained for a minimum of 6 years for tax purposes and a maximum of 10 years. Data is monitored annually and any subject data that is deemed no longer fit for purpose ie. services are targeted for specific ages only. 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, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements. As a minimum, we need to store your data for as long as is necessary to enable us to provide you with the services that you have requested from us (or to support your other uses of our Channels, such as maintaining your account on our website). However, we will retain certain of your personal data for longer if we think it is reasonably necessary to do so in the circumstances, taking into consideration factors such as: 

9.1.1.our need to perform any agreements between you and us (including order fulfilment); 9.1.2.our need to answer any queries or resolve any problems you may have; 

9.1.3.your continued consent to receive marketing and other emails and communications  from us; 


9.1.4.our continued provision of our services to you; and

9.1.5.our need to comply with legal requirements (e.g. relating to record keeping).

9.2. In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see ‘your rights as a data subject’ above for further information. If you tell us that you would like to delete your account, we will take steps to delete all the personal data we hold about you once it is no longer necessary for us to hold it (e.g. to fulfil any outstanding orders, resolve disputes, or as is permitted by applicable law or regulation). 

9.3. For as long as we do store your data, the Company follows generally accepted industry standards and maintains reasonable safeguards to attempt to ensure the security, integrity,  and privacy of the information you have provided. The Company has security measures in place designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control, as well as limiting 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. Personal data collected by the Company in connection with this policy is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. The Company maintains information at secure data centers, where information is encrypted end-to-end when being transferred or stored. Other measures used include; two-factor authentication; in-house access controls; password protection; secure deletion, contractual obligations and data handling processes for TapIn Media Ltd employees and outsourced third parties. 

9.4. Notwithstanding our efforts to keep your personal data secure, no system can be 100% reliable. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide through  the Channels. In addition, you are responsible for maintaining the strength and confidentiality of your login credentials (if any). 

9.5. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you (and any applicable regulator where we are legally required to do so) as soon as reasonably practicable if we have reason to believe that there has been a personal data breach by us which could adversely affect your rights and freedoms.

Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you.

10.2. If you access such third party websites, please ensure that you are satisfied with their respective privacy policies before you provide them with any personal data.
