When additional information is requested, we will try to let you know at the time of collection how we intend to use the personal information you provide, such as respond to your enquiry or conduct a survey for example. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of any personal information you do supply to us.
You can help us update and maintain the accuracy of any personal information you supply by notifying us of any changes to your address, title, telephone numbers or e-mail address.

MARKETING & OPT OUT
If you have given permission, we may contact you by mail or email about products, promotions, or special offers that may be of interest to you.

We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006. Very occasionally, we may share your details with carefully selected third parties. However, if your communication preferences show that you have chosen not to receive information from third parties, then of course your details will not be shared.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Melbros Limited, our customers, or others.

KEEPING YOUR DATA SECURE
We will use technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal data, for example:
we store your personal data on secure servers; and
payment details are encrypted using SSL technology.
While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal data, you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that are transferred from you or to you via the internet.
You have the right to request access to personal data that we may process about you. If you wish to exercise this right, you should:
put your request in writing;
include proof of your identity and address (e.g. a copy of your driving licence or passport, and a recent utility or credit card bill); and
specify the personal data you want access to, including any account or reference numbers where applicable.
You have the right to require us to correct any inaccuracies in your data free of charge. If you wish to exercise this right, you should:
put your request in writing;
provide us with enough information to identify you; and
specify the information that is incorrect and what it should be replaced with.
You also have the right to ask us to stop processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. If you wish to exercise this right, you should log in to ‘My Account’, click 'My Promotional Preferences’, uncheck ‘Please tick to subscribe to future offers and deal emails’, and apply the changes. This will ensure you no longer receive promotional emails.
