How we use your information

We mainly rely on three separate bases to lawfully process your information.

Firstly, we need to process your information to provide our Services to you, in accordance with our Terms of Business. This processing is necessary to perform the contract between you and us. Secondly, where you have given us consent to use your information in certain ways, we will rely on your consent. Thirdly, as described in more detail below, we may process your information where necessary to further our legitimate interests, where those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests. Occasionally, FWB may rely on other legal bases such as to comply with a legal obligation.

In order to deliver, personalise and improve our Services, we combine and use the information that we have about you to understand how you use and interact with our Services. We may also use information held about you for the following purposes:

We may also use your data to provide you with information about goods which may be of interest to you, and we may contact you about these by post, e-mail or telephone. We will only contact you with information about goods similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you. We will do this during the period of your relationship with us and, unless specifically instructed otherwise by you, for a reasonable period of time after the relationship has ended in order to inform you about products, services, promotions and special offers which we think may be of interest to you.

If we send you a marketing email, it will include instructions on how to opt out of receiving these marketing communications in the future. Please remember that even if you opt out of receiving marketing emails, we may still send you important Service information related to your account.

Except where we use your personal data for marketing purposes on the basis of your prior consent and subject to any opt out instructions, we process personal data for marketing purposes as necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests in promoting our products and services.

To protect our customers, premises and assets from crime, we operate CCTV systems in our branches and car parks which record images for security. We do this on the basis of our legitimate business interests.

How your information is shared

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.
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 of use or terms and conditions of supply and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of FWB Products Limited, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Your Rights

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you, as a data subject have a number of rights which are detailed below.
