Your privacy is our priority

What information do we collect?
When you sign up to the Lidl Moves (which will run from 7 July, 2020) e-mail list you will be asked to submit some basic information about yourself, specifically your email address. We will use this information to provide you with regular communication in the form of campaign updates and exclusive content. You will only receive these updates once you provide us with the required information.
How will we use your information?
When you sign up to the Lidl Moves e-mail list, Lidl relies on consent as the legal basis for processing your personal data. Where Lidl processes your data on the basis of consent, Lidl will:

• only collect and process the personal data that it needs for purposes it has identified in advance
• ensure that, as far as possible, the personal data it holds is accurate, or a system is in place for ensuring that it is kept up to date as far as possible
• only hold onto your personal data for as long as it is needed, after which time
Lidl will securely erase or delete the personal data ensure that appropriate security measures are in place to ensure that your personal data can only be accessed by those who need to access it and that it is held and transferred securely
Lidl will ensure that all staff who handle personal data on its behalf are aware of their responsibilities under this policy and that they are adequately trained and supervised.
