BetterYou’s data protection role
BetterYou is a controller in relation to your data; we are not a processor or a sub-processor of any other brand or company. As a controller, we use 3rd parties to process data.
Where is your data stored?
Like most companies, BetterYou utilises 3rd parties to provide services to our customers and to store data. An overview of the services our 3rd parties conduct on our behalf is listed below.
These 3rd parties will be based in the UK, EEA and in some cases outside of both the UK and EEA.
BetterYou conducts thorough reviews of all its 3rd parties, including implementing data protection agreements, where possible, to ensure that every possible safeguard is in place and that the data is secure. Should there be a possibility that data could be exposed to a high level of risk, a Data Protection Impact Assessment will be completed and will be available upon request.
Where data is transferred outside of the UK, and the EEA BetterYou has taken steps to ensure that your data is transferred under a lawful condition or safeguard as described in the GDPR.
BetterYou works with several 3rd parties who offer eCommerce solutions for BetterYou to be able to provide online shopping to our customers, most of which do not process customer data in any way; below is a list of those who have access to or process your data and a brief description of what they do.
|Online purchasing (Shopify)||Shopify provides our main eCommerce solution, allowing you to log in, place orders and various other website functionality.|
|Email and SMS marketing (Klaviyo)||We share data with Klaviyo to track previous purchases, email engagement, pages visited as well as form submissions.|
|Website analytics (Google Analytics)||We use Google Analytics to define user sessions, page visits and products purchased. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports by Google Analytics to better understand website traffic and webpage usage.|
You can opt-out to the creation of a user profile, Hotjar’s storing of data about your usage of our site and Hotjar’s use of tracking cookies on other websites by following this do not track link.
|Remarketing (Google Ads)||We use Googles remarketing code to log when users visit specific pages or take specific actions on our website, this allows us to provide relevant advertising through Google and third-party services to display tailored adverts on pages across the internet.
You can opt out of personalised remarketing if you wish by visiting Google’s website and updating your settings or alternatively visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out page.
|Advertising pixels (Meta, Twitter and Tiktok)||We use both Meta, Twitter and Tiktok pixels on our site which allow us track the pages visited and items purchased by users which may be used to create personalised remarketing ads.
The pixels also allow us to carryout conversion tracking by reporting on the actions people take after visiting our website through an ad. This helps us measure the effectiveness and improve the relevancy of our advertisements.
No personal information is contained or collected as a result of using these pixels.
BetterYou would love to keep in touch with you. When you sign up to receive marketing and open an account with us, we will send you emails, postal marketing and SMS messages (where you have opted in and submitted your phone number). We will also display customised advertising when you log in to your social media profiles.
These messages will be BetterYou specific; we do not sell your data or share it with other brands for advertising purposes; your data is used only to promote BetterYou goods and offers when signing up to marketing.
Our marketing messages are sent via a specialist eCommerce marketing tool. You can opt-out of marketing at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in your emails and SMS messages or by contacting us directly.
There will be occasions when BetterYou sends administrative messages such as order updates; these messages are not deemed marketing and cannot be opted out of.
Marketing and administration emails you receive from BetterYou contain a tracking pixel. This pixel lets us know things such as our email campaigns' open rates and click rates.
The pixel also lets us know if an email has not been delivered to update our records and keep them current.
When we analyse the data, we do so from an aggregated perspective, meaning that we report upon an overall number of open rates and click rates.
When a purchase is made, or you add an item to your cart, you will notice that the marketing preference box is pre-ticked. This is because we rely on a soft opt in to promote further, similar goods to you.
If you wish to opt-out of these messages, please untick this box at the cart stage; of course, you can unsubscribe from marketing at any point.
Should you place an item in the cart and not complete an order, BetterYou will send you an abandoned cart message offering you the chance to complete your order. These messages are sent when you provide an email address to BetterYou at the checkout stage or where you are logged in to your BetterYou account.
Abandoned cart messages are sent using the soft opt-in method described above.
When you provide a postal address to BetterYou we will send you postal marketing. Postal marketing can be opted out of by contacting email@example.com.
BetterYou does not collect your payment details or process them in any way. All data processed by payment providers is done by you as a customer with no processing from BetterYou.
How long is your data stored?
Once per year, we cleanse data to ensure that we only process the data of those individuals who have an ongoing and active relationship with BetterYou.
As part of our Record of Processing Activities, we have defined the length of time we store all of our data. Should your data be due for deletion, it will be erased during the yearly data cleanse.
