3. Information we may receive about you

After you have read about the Information we receive about you, please read how we use your information for more detail about what we do with your Information.

  • Information you provide to us when you use the App

We will receive your name, email address, date of birth, gender and postcode when you fill in the form in the App to create an account. You will also need to create a username when you create an account.

We will also ask you for your marketing preferences. We will take a note of whether or not you agree to receive our newsletter or other marketing from us and the date and time when you gave us your preference. If you are under 16 years of age you cannot agree to us sending you marketing and we will not provide you with marketing – we explain this further below. See ‘marketing and opting out’

We may keep copies of your Information when you make contact with us or we have contact with you.

  • Information we will collect as you use the App

Cookies

We may monitor your use of the App through the use of cookies and similar tracking technology. We explain our use of cookies below. See ‘use of cookies and other in-app permissions‘.

Location data

We collect information that tells us your location using GPS technology, including where you used the App to interact with a feature in our App (for example, scanning a marker to collect eggs or energy boosters to build up your points), how many times you visit Liverpool ONE and the time you spend at Liverpool ONE.

Some of the features of the App will require your location data to work. You will be asked to consent to providing your location data to us if you would like to use the features in the App that need your location data (for example, the “you are here” feature to pinpoint your location in relation to markers that you can scan to build up your points). You can withdraw your consent to sharing your location data with us at any time by turning off location services in the settings in your mobile device, however if you do not consent to sharing your location with us, then unfortunately some of the features of the App will not work.

Mobile device information and information based on your use of the App

We collect Information about your mobile device each time you use the App. For example, we may collect Information on the brand and type of your mobile device and the mobile operating system that you are using. See ‘how we use your information’.

We may also collect Information about how you use the App. For example, we may collect statistics on how many photographs or videos you take while using the App.

4. How we use your information

The main reason why we use your Information is to provide you with an augmented reality experience created and hosted by us at Liverpool ONE. By using our App, users can build up points as they move around Liverpool ONE collecting Zombies and participating in zombie battles. Users appear on a leader board with other users of the App based on how many points they have collected by using the App.

We also use your Information for the following purposes:

  • to help us identify you and the account you create when you use the App;
  • administration of your account, for example, if you forget your password;
  • research, statistical analysis and behavioural analysis to assess:
    • if this campaign influences visitor numbers to Liverpool ONE;
    • the popularity of the App and if we might run another campaign of this nature in the future;
    • if the App appeals to both male and female users so that we can develop our future apps to appeal to a wide audience; and
    • if the App has enriched the experience of those visiting Liverpool ONE;
  • aggregating and anonymising your Information to enable us to analyse users’ use of the App (and your rights still apply to the process we carry out to aggregate or anonymise your Information, but do not exist once we can no longer identify you from this data), for example, anonymising postcodes to understand where the majority of our visitors come from to assist us with assessing how well we engage with individuals outside of the local area;
  • to optimise the user experience of the App (for example, moving markers that are not being scanned by users);
  • marketing, including customer profiling to understand if our marketing is relevant to those attending Liverpool ONE – see ‘marketing and opting out’;
  • improving our advertising at Liverpool ONE;
  • to verify that you are over 16 years of age if you choose to opt in to receive marketing from us;
  • to notify you of any changes to the App or to our services that may affect you;
  • providing support for different mobile devices; and
  • assessing which mobile operating systems are most popular to inform future mobile application developments.

You may take photographs and videos when you use the App. We do not store any of the photographs or videos you take when you use the App. Photographs and videos remain on your mobile device, unless you choose to share these via social media or any other third party using features outside and not connected with the App.

Marketing and opting out

Anyone under 16 years of age cannot agree to receive marketing from us without their parent’s consent.

If you are over 16 years of age and have given us your consent to receive our newsletter or other marketing communications, we may contact you by email about offers (for example, discounts at restaurants or shops), events and competitions at Liverpool ONE because we think that this information may be of interest to you. We do not share your Information with any third parties and any offers, events or competitions are chosen by us and sent to you by us directly (and not sent by a third party). We may monitor user engagement with the marketing emails that we send out. When we send you an email we keep a record of whether you opened the email, for the purposes of understanding if you are engaging with our marketing communications.

If you decide at any time that you do not want to receive any marketing from us, you can opt out at any time. See ‘your rights’.

Lawful basis for using your information

We can only process your Information if we have a “lawful basis” to do so. The Data Protection Laws set out a number of lawful bases, and we’ve set out below those that we may rely on when we process your Information.

Legitimate interests
We may rely on our legitimate interests to process your Information provided that we have carried out a balancing test to assess our legitimate interests in using your Information against your interests and rights under the Data Protection Laws. We may process your Information based on our legitimate interests where we have determined, acting reasonably and considering the circumstances, that we have a legitimate interest to do so, which does not outweigh your interests and rights under the Data Protection Laws, and provided always that we are able to process your Information in accordance with the Data Protection Laws.

Consent
We may rely on your consent to process your Information and you will be notified by us when we intended to do so. You have the right to withdraw your consent to processing of this nature at any time by contacting us using the contact details provided at the beginning of this privacy policy. See ‘ Our contact details if you want to ask us any questions or exercise your rights’.

5. Disclosure of your information

We may disclose your information to:

    • a third party who acquires Liverpool ONE Management Company Limited or acquires substantially all of its assets, in which case the Information will be one of the acquired assets;
    • our developers who may access our servers to fix issues with the App;
    • our third party hosting provider; and
    • our third party marketing platform provider. See ‘marketing and opting out; and
    • law enforcement and regulatory agencies in connection with any investigation to help prevent unlawful activity or as otherwise required by applicable law.

Transfers outside of the European Economic Area
Transfers to the United States
The Information which we collect about you may be transferred outside the European Economic Area for the purposes of providing marketing to you. Specifically, your Information may be transferred to The Rocket Science Group LLC who is based in the United States and which is a country that the European Commission has deemed to have adequate data protection practices in place under the EU-US Privacy Shield decision. A copy of the decision can be found here.

6. Keeping your information secure and how long do we keep it for?

We use a variety of measures to protect your information and these include:

  • access to your account is controlled by a password and username that are unique to you;
  • we store your Information on secure servers provided by our third party hosting provider that are dedicated to us and for our own use (except if we share your Information with a third party. See disclosure of your information);
  • our servers are maintained to ensure that the latest patches are installed as they are released;
  • your Information is protected by a firewall with identity based access control;
  • regular penetration testing is carried out on our servers (which may be carried out by a third party on our behalf);
  • an annual security audit is performed on our servers and these are continuously monitored using anti-virus software;
  • your Information is backed-up daily; and
  • the data centre containing our servers is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year by security guards and is protected by multiple physical and electronic security systems including 2.8m prison fencing, CCTV and multi-factor access control systems.

Our third party marketing platform provider uses a variety of measures to protect your Information and these include:

  • the servers are protected by physical security 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with biometric scanners;
  • our passwords to access the marketing platform are hashed (meaning the original password is stored and a series of characters are used in its place, so the original password is kept secret);
  • the marketing platform is encrypted; and
  • performing regular external security penetration tests throughout the year.

While we will take great care to protect your Information, you acknowledge that using the internet is not completely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any Information that are transferred from you or to you via the internet; any transmission is at your own risk.

7. How long do we keep your information for

Your account Information
If you create an account, we will delete your account (including the Information you provided to us when you set up your account) at the end of the campaign associated with this App, except that we may keep your name and email address for up to six years after the campaign for the purposes of dealing with any issues or concerns you may have about how we handled your account, and also to allow us to bring or defend legal proceedings.

Marketing
If you receive marketing from us, we will continue to send you marketing for a period of 12 months from the last time you opened a marketing email from us. If you do not engage with our marketing for a period of 12 months we will add your email address to a suppression list (see below).

If you do not opt in to receive marketing from us we will add your email address to a suppression list so that we do not include your email address within our mail shots.

Your Information that we aggregate and anonymise in reports
We may keep Information that we have aggregated and/or anonymised by creating statistical reports and analysis based on how users use the App. The information contained in these reports cannot identify you and we may use and share this information as we choose to.
