We process your personal information to operate, provide and improve the services that we offer to our customers. These purposes include:

  • Provide, troubleshoot and improve services - We use your personal information to provide functionality, analyse performance, fix errors and improve usability and effectiveness of services.
  • Recommendations and personalisation - We use your personal information to recommend products and services that might be of interest to you, identify your preferences and personalise your experience with us. 
  • Comply with legal obligations - In some cases we have a legal obligation to collect and process your personal information. For instance we collect from buyers and sellers information regarding place of establishment and bank account information with identity verification and other purposes.

3.5 How will DMG protect your information?

All information held is on a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Here at our premises the information is also held in secure form and is not accessible to anyone outside of DMG staff. This provides many security features.

Authentication: This assures your browser that your data is being sent to the correct computer server, and that the server is secure. 

Encryption: This encodes the data, so that it cannot be read anywhere other than the secure server.

Data integrity: This checks the data being transferred to ensure it has not been altered. Communication between the merchant’s site server and real credit occurs via the internet using the simple commerce messaging protocol (SCMP). SCMP uses DES and public key cryptography to provide privacy, message authentication, no-repudiation and integrity. SCMP messages are digitally signed and converted to ASCII format (“armoured”) from transmission over a Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) connection, enabling messages to pass though firewalls and proxy servers

Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Act, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. 

It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and your computers. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer. 

3.6 Consent

Personal data

Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) personal data is defined as: 

“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.

Why does DMG need to collect and store personal data?

In order for us to provide you with a service or product we need to collect personal data. In any event, we are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose, and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy. 

In terms of being contacted for marketing purposes DMG would contact you for additional consent.

Will DMG share my personal data with anyone else?

We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to DMG in the course of dealing with you. Any third parties that we may share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only to fulfil the service they provide you on our behalf. When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details in line with DMG’s procedures. If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.

How will DMG use the personal data it collects about me? 

DMG will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary. DMG is required to retain information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for income tax and audit purposes. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.

Under what circumstances will DMG contact me?

Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure.

Can I find out the personal data that the organisation holds about me?

DMG at your request, can confirm what information we hold about you and how it is processed. If DMG does hold personal data about you, you can request the following information:

  • If the processing is based on the legitimate interests of DMG or a third party, information about those interests.

  • Recipients or categories of recipients that the data is disclosed to.
  • If we intend to transfer the personal data to a third country or international organisation, information about how we ensure this is done securely. The EU has approved sending personal data to some countries because they meet a minimum standard of data protection. In other cases, we will ensure there are specific measures in place to secure your information.

  • Details of your rights to correct, erase, restrict or object to such processing.
  • Information about your right to withdraw consent at any time.
