3. Who we share your information with


There may be circumstances where we may share some of your data with third parties. Below are the instances in which we may do this and to whom we share information with:

  • In fulfilment of your order, we will share only relevant personal information with third party logistics providers and carriers for example DPD, DHL and Royal Mail.
  • Credit card reference/clearing agencies or fraud prevention/detection agencies, for example, PayPal.
  • If you make an enquiry to the customer services team via email or phone, your information will be stored in our emails and, sometimes, our private customer database on Dropbox. This allows us to manage your query efficiently and ensure the best possible customer service.
  • If you have not opted-out of third party data sharing (there is a tick box at the checkout for you to check if you do not wish to be included in third party data sharing), we will share your order history with third parties such as Epsilon Abacus, Experian and Ibehaviour. You can find out more about this sort of data sharing by watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=28&v=_2784r6KUcU. Should you change your mind about third party data sharing or wish to check whether your data is shared in this way, please email studio@libbylondon.com. Below is more information about the companies we work with for this purpose:

    • Abacus Epsilon (registered as Epsilon International UK Ltd), is a company that manages the Abacus Alliance on behalf of UK retailers. The participating retailers are active in the clothing, collectables, food & wine, gardening, gadgets & entertainment, health & beauty, household goods, and home interiors categories. They share information on what their customers buy. Abacus Epsilon analyse this pooled information to help us and the other retailers understand consumers’ wider buying patterns. From this information, we (and others’) can tailor our communication, for example sending catalogues that should be of interest to the individual, based on what they like to buy. The companies may transfer data outside the EEA. The transfer will take place in the presence of appropriate safeguards, including standard data protection clauses adopted by the EU Commission.

    • Experian Ltd uses this data for the purposes of managing a service called Club Canvasse, a home shopping and direct retailer data co-operative of which Libby London are members. By sharing information on what customers buy and pooling that with contributions from other members of the co-operative, the service allows us to better understand customers and prospects and to communicate more effectively with them. To understand more please click through to their website here (http://www.experian.co.uk/marketing-services/consumer-information-portal/)

    • To find new customers for our business we are a member of a large co-operative of like-minded UK retail brands that pool and share transactional information. We work with a program called IBehavior, part of the Company Conexance that processes customer transactional data on behalf of each Member. This process highlights spending patterns and allows us to identify suitable prospects to receive an offer or introduction from us via the post. Thus, we send postal offers and information only to prospective customers that are likely to be interested in buying from us. Co-op Member brands operate in numerous categories, including apparel, home and garden, collectables, food and wine, gadgets and gifts, entertainment, health and beauty, travel and leisure.

  • Our partners who process data for us, for example Go Direct and Ometria. Such companies process transactional information in an anonymised way for the purpose of business insight. They and their partners also process names and address for the purpose of mailing our catalogue and emails for the purpose of sending automated emails such as ‘Welcome Emails’ when you sign up to email.
  • Outside research companies or consultants whom we may or may not ask to contact you directly for your opinions on our products and services. In these instances, we provide them with only the information they need to perform their function.
  • We use the marketing services of Facebook Inc (including Instagram) to better target our communications. As part of this process, an email address is provided.
