1. Our primary use of your personal information is to allow us to provide you with goods and services. We also use your personal information to meet our legal obligations and for our legitimate business interests. Often these business interests also benefit you.
2. Most of the brands that sell products or services in our store or via our website are not owned by Harrods. As such, we are not responsible for uses of your personal information by other brands. When you provide your personal information in store or online, be sure to read the data collection form carefully to understand who you are sharing your information with.
3. Our website, Harrods.com and all personal information provided via Harrods.com is managed by our website provider, Farfetch Platform Solutions Limited.

5. We will retain your personal information for up to 6 years after your last interaction with us, save where there is a legal obligation, or we believe that it is in your interests for us to keep it for longer. We consider an interaction to be a purchase in store or online, attending an event or interacting with one of our e-mail marketing emails.
6. If you have agreed for us to send you e-mail marketing, sponsored posts over social media and/or to identify similar potential customers, we share your phone number and email address with Meta, Google, Pinterest and YouTube. You can opt-out of this at any time by contacting Customer Service using the details below.
7. To help us understand which marketing platforms we should invest in, we have identified a legitimate business interest to share your email address and phone number with Google, Meta and Pinterest to determine which social media platform is the most popular with our customers. Google, Meta and Pinterest will delete your personal data no longer than seven days after it has been shared. You can opt-out of this at any time by contacting Customer Service using the details below
8. It is within our legitimate interests to ensure that the information that we hold about you is accurate. We instruct Experian to check your personal information against national databases, publicly available records and Royal Mail redirection instructions to ensure that we have the most up to date contact details for you.
9. We invest heavily in Cyber Security to provide you with the best available protection for your personal information.
