We use Personal Data held about you in the following ways:
To estimate our audience size and usage pattern.
To store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise our website according to your individual interests.
To speed up your searches.
To recognise you when you return to our website.
Lycamobile and other Lyca companies may also use your Personal Data to contact you by post, telephone, e-mail or SMS to let you know about products and services offered by Lycamobile, other Lyca group companies and selected companies, including any special offers and promotions, which may interest you but we must obtain your consent (or an indication of no objection) to do so. If you do not wish to receive this information or be contacted in this way, you can check certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data at the time of collection to indicate your objection to the use of your Personal Data for direct marketing or you may at any time, free of any charge, opt out of this direct marketing by requesting to be put on a designated list. You may make this request by contacting the Customer Services Department or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in Hong Kong). We may make use of the Personal Data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience.
We may disclose your Personal Data to any member of our group of companies in respect of the uses set out above.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties relating to a prospective change of control or investment in Lycamobile or if we are under a duty to disclose or share your Personal Data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Lycamobile, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Subject to the above and the use of your Personal Data for the purposes for which it was collected, your personal data will generally be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to any other person without your consent.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
