Lifestyle Savings and Learning
We provide users with hundreds of offers provided by third party merchants. Where this data is provided by us to the third party to deliver a service to you, the processing is covered by this Privacy Statement. Where you provide your data directly to a third party, Wrkit no involvement in that transaction or access to the data and the processing is the responsibility of the third party. While we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we encourage you to read the third party’s privacy statement and terms before you disclose personal information to them. An example of this would be using one of our discount codes we provide, where you leave our site to redeem the discount.
For Hot Deals we pass on the data to the hot deal provider, so they can fulfil the order and deliver the item to you. Hot deal providers must agree to our data protection terms and fill out a security due diligence questionnaire to our standards. When an order is completed by the end-user, the merchant is the controller of the personal data it has received. The merchant is therefore responsible for determining the purpose and means of processing such data.
For call back forms as a redemption method, user’s details will be sent when submitting the form to the offer provider. After this Wrkit have no involvement in the transaction as the third party will then contact you directly. We store these forms for a limited time. They are then deleted as per our data retention policy above. Users should be aware that this information is being sent to the third party and the user will be subject to their privacy policies and terms thereafter.
When a user is rewarded on our recognition platform, they may claim a gift card of a certain monetary amount. We use third parties to fulfil these orders. Wrkit will perform a security due diligence on each provider that we use.
Agents, consultants and related third parties
Wrkit, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include delivering our communications, maintaining databases, analysing data, and processing payments. When we do retain another company, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function, and they may only use such information for our benefit and the purposes for which they were engaged.
If an authorised user redeems a reward in our recognition platform then we use third-party providers to fulfil these orders. One of our recognition card providers process their payments in the US. This company is covered under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.
Also your data may occasionally also be transmitted, held or processed outside of the EEA by staff who are employed by Wrkit in another jurisdiction.
Wrkit sends newsletters to Lifestyle Savings and POWR users regularly. These contain selected discounts and savings from multiple third-party providers. Users must opt in and give their consent, so they can receive these emails. Users can unsubscribe from these emails by clicking the link which is available at the bottom of every newsletter.
Wrkit will send transactional emails to users and sometimes to other persons. This includes gifting a hot deal, receiving rewards and recognition, cashback purchases, sending and responding to queries, follow-up communications, account-related emails to members, and POWR related emails. Sending, receiving and responding to transactional email communications is inherent in Wrkit’s Services.
