8.3 Marketing: You will receive newsletters and marketing communications (including email and/or SMS) from us if you have requested this or if you have purchased goods and/or services and have not opted out of receiving that marketing.  We strive to provide you with choices regarding personal data choices around marketing and advertising.  However, sometimes system functionalities limit the choices.  For example, an initial opt-in may be to marketing for all of Daylesford, Bamford and Daylesford Stays (rather than us being able to do a multiple choice opt-in to each of those brands separately).  However, you may then opt-out of marketing from any one or more of the brands upon request.  Other than the sharing of personal data between the entities within the Bamford Collection, where your opt-in to marketing expressly covers all of the brands rather than a part only, we will not share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.  

8.4 Change of purpose: We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.  If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.  Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law. 



We and our third-party service providers (e.g., order fulfilment and booking system providers, payment processors, marketing fulfilment agencies and customer service agencies) may contact you by post, telephone, email and/or text message depending on the reason for correspondence, unless you have told us not to or have registered with the telephone or post preference services. 


10.1 Internal Third Parties: Your information may be shared throughout the Bamford Collection for the purposes set out above where relevant.  For example, if you place a booking with Daylesford Stays which includes a cookery course then your information will be shared with Daylesford Organic Limited or if it includes a spa treatment it will be shared with Bamford Limited.  Where your marketing opt-in clearly identifies that it is an opt-in to Bamford Collection marketing in the entirety rather than any particular part then your information will be provided amongst the entities within the Bamford Collection to enable such marketing. 

10.2 External Third Parties: We will provide your personal information to: 

  • our service providers who perform services on our behalf, such as our IT service providers who manage the site and its performance, booking system providers, gift card providers, delivery companies, marketing fulfilment agencies or professional advisers who provide legal, consultancy, insurance or accounting services; 
  • Mention-Me Ltd if you apply to or are enrolled onto our refer-a-friend programme.  The personal data is shared for the operation of the refer-a-friend programme and includes customer email address and certain order data.  The information is processed to enable the enrolment, monitor the programme, for safeguarding against gaming or fraudulent use of the programme, communicate with customers in connection with the operation of the programme and delivery of rewards and for Daylesford to receive reports on the performance of the programme; 
  • HM Revenue & Customs, regulators and other authorities who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances 
  • analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of the site 
  • the payment facilitators to process payment and to undertake fraud prevention checks.

10.4 Limited third party use: We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions. 


11.1 Storage by us: All personal information we have about you which you provide to us directly or through the Site(s) is stored on secure servers operated by us or our third-party IT service providers. Where you have a personal shopping service with members of our staff they may keep your contact details to hand in their records. We have put or ensure that there are in place appropriate security measures and policies to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed.  In addition, we limit 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. 

11.2 Third Party storage: Where information has been passed to our third-party service providers it will be stored on their secure servers. These third party service providers have access to your personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. We ensure that these third-party service providers will only process your personal data in accordance with this policy and applicable Data Protection legislation. 

11.3 Breaches: We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. 


Your personal information may be processed by our third-party service providers operating outside the EEA in accordance with this privacy policy. We ensure appropriate safeguards are used to ensure that your personal data is given a similar degree of protection and is treated securely and in accordance the Data Protection legislation in connection to such transfers or processing of your personal data outside the EEA.  This could be through ensuring that your personal data is only transferred to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data or through using specific contracts approved for use in the UK which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK. 


Your personal information will be held in our customer relationship management systems for an indefinite period. 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. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.  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.  We will carry out periodic data cleanses of this information to ensure that it is up to date and accurate and it is still reasonably necessary for us to retain it to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. 


14.1 Available rights: You have the following rights in connection with your personal information processed by us: 

  • Access – you can request access to your personal information and further details about how your personal information is handled (commonly known as a ‘data subject access request’). 
  • Object – you have the right to object to our processing of your personal information for direct marketing purposes or where the processing isn’t necessary for the purposes of the contract between us or legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.  In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms. 
  • Rectification – you can request rectification of any incomplete or incorrect personal data held about you.  It is important that the personal data that we hold about you is accurate and current.  Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us. 
  • Erasure – you can request erasure of any personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue processing 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. 
  • Restriction – This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data 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 or you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it. 
  • Transfer – 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.
