Your usage of the website may lead to the collection of personal information about you. This includes information you give us when you fill out a form on the site, as well as information about your use of the site and our services via cookies or other tracking technologies, as described below.
We work with carefully selected partners to deliver services in some portions of the site, or we allow you to click over to a partner’s site, in order to provide you with a complete choice of services. These may offer more comparative services, or you may be able to provide direct contact information so that they can contact you to better understand your product requirements. We work closely with our partners to ensure that we only share information with them that is required to offer you with services, and that they only share information with us that is required to provide you with services.
We only share information with third parties if it is necessary for us to offer our Services to you or if it is required by law.
When you click through to an advertiser or partner, for example, we may share limited information with them to allow them to track that you were referred to them by us and to better understand your purchasing path.
We will give your data straight to an advertiser if we collect data from you to pass on to them so they can contact you. We won’t use that information for anything other than allowing them to contact you.
What is our basis for processing personal information?
The data protection laws require us to state the basis on which we will process your information.
We may use and process your personal information where we have genuine and legitimate business grounds for doing so. Our legitimate interests must be balanced against your interests.
Our legitimate interests include enabling you to access and use our Services by narrowing your search and providing comparisons that fit your needs, tracking sales, and improving and optimising our services by analysing how you use the site. We may also use anonymized data to gain a better understanding of market trends and behaviours, which we may share with other site visitors.
We use this information in a limited fashion that does not allow us to identify you as an individual. It isn’t utilised for anything other than providing you with our services.
We will only process and collect your personal information with your consent if it is required. For instance, if we need to share your information with a third party or if you want us to send you marketing messages. In certain circumstances, the method by which we will process your data will be explicitly disclosed, and you will be given the opportunity to change your mind.
