Services Providers

In addition, we may supply some or all of your data, under strict licensing terms to Services Providers (which may include companies who will use it for a variety of direct marketing purposes).

Services Providers carry out data profiling and will combine your data with data they get from other sources (including public sources) and use it to create “predictive models”. Services Providers use these models to try to predict behaviour and preferences (e.g. how likely you are to buy a holiday online or take a particular type of holiday) or likely circumstances (e.g. whether you are eligible for a particular credit card).

Some Services Providers use the data we supply to help their clients with fraud prevention, tracing and ID verification.

Services Providers will also try to match and then link your data with data that they receive about you from other sources, to make sure that the data they hold about you is correct (e.g. to check whether you have recently moved address).

They share your data, including the profiled data they have created about you, primarily to:

The Services Providers we work with are limited to only those organisations who we have completed checks on and who will only process personal data in compliance with all relevant privacy laws, regulations and guidance.

What is our lawful basis for processing your data?

We process your data for marketing purposes under the consent you have provided to our data partners when they collected your data. If you wish to withdraw your consent please contact us and we will globally suppress your details from receiving any further third-party marketing, within 24hrs.

For some processing we rely on our legitimate interest as a business or those of a third-party, provided those interests are not outweighed by your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms.

In each of our data partner’s privacy policies, Mdeg is highlighted as a designated third-party with whom your data will be shared under the data partner’s legitimate interest particularly for fraud prevention, tracing and ID verification. We further process your data for use by our Services Providers under our legitimate interest as a business to provide your data for these purposes.

In specific situations, we may process your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.

You have the right to object to this processing and if you wish to do so please inform us by emailing compliance@mdeg.co.uk or by using any of the other contact details at the beginning of this policy.

How long do we keep your data?

We only retain information for as long as it is required for the purpose(s) for which we legitimately use it, or for longer periods if required for legal and regulatory reasons. The period for which we use personal data can vary depending on the contract terms with our data partners.

If we are asked to delete personal data from our files, we fulfil the request within 24 hours. In addition, we will inform the data partner who provided the information to delete it within 7 days and ensure our Services Providers delete the record within 14 days. 

How do we keep your data safe?

We take our obligations to keep your personal data safe and secure very seriously. Within Mdeg, access to your personal information is strictly controlled on a ‘need to know’ basis. Staff members are only allowed access to your personal data if they have been sufficiently trained in data handling. We have specific technical controls in place to restrict access and these are monitored regularly.

Where is your data stored?

We store your personal information in an Amazon Web Service cloud environment located in the European Economic Area (EEA). We do not transfer your data to any country that outside this area.
