Why We Collect Personal Data


We collect personal data so that we can target you with offers and content that we believe may be relevant to you. Without profiling you in this manner, we would send you less relevant marketing messages. Profiling may include basic information like your postcode and targeting you with local brands. It could be more detailed, such as your salary banding, so that we can send you relevant products for your income bracket. In general, profiles are grouped into segments to aid targeting rather than by individual targeting.

We do not use data for medical or religious purposes. We do not store data to identify sexual orientation, political beliefs or religious beliefs.

We do aggregate personal data to develop and improve the content we display to you on the website and send you via email. For example, as there is an increase in mobile usage, our design process has used data to understand device usage.

We do use personal data to detect fraudulent activity on our advertising campaigns. For example, this may include detecting invalid applications for a financial product, or detecting too many clicks from the same source.

We do use your personal data to pass your details onto a FCA approved insurance broker for insurance quotations, manage promotions and competitions you enter, to contact you or select you for a promotion.


How We Collect Personal Data


We collect data in 3 ways

  • Data you enter by forms, either on our websites, partner websites or through an email we send.
  • Browsing data such as views, clicks and transaction history on websites we control
  • Open, click and transaction behaviour on emails we send.

When you register for our Services, you may provide us with:

  • Your personal details, including your postal addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, gender and date of birth, title plus home and car insurance information, newsletter preferences and marketing consents. Please note this list is not inclusive and you may provide us with other information.

When you visit our Websites, or open an email from us:

  • Data about your online purchases (for example, what you have bought, when and where you bought it and how you paid for it)
  • Data about your online browsing behaviour on our Websites and information about when you click on one of our adverts
  • Data about what emails you open, and click on.
  • Data about any devices you have used to access our Services (including the make, model and operating system, IP address, browser type and mobile device identifiers)

To determine whether the data is relevant, we build a profile of you based on the demographic and behaviour data as described above. This allows us to profile your interests and therefore target you with relevant ads or relevant offers and promotions from brands we work with.

You can opt-out at any point. To do this click on the link marked unsubscribe in the email received from us. Your details will be stored on our system only for suppression purposes. And if we receive your email address again, we will automatically remove you from any further communications from us. This suppression method ensures you will never hear from us again. Alternatively, CLICK HERE to request removal from our marketing activity.

Personal Email Data We Receive From Third Parties

esbconnect manages email data on behalf of third parties. Therefore, you may have signed up to receive third party marketing messages via another website or partner, who have then provided us with your details. To do this, you have explicitly opted in for your data to be transferred and used in this manner.

We do the upmost to ensure a valid opt-in exists. The original data controller will provide us with details of the opt-in and then we will audit the opt-in process and the privacy policy. In most cases, we will be named at point of opt-in or you would have opted in to receive marketing messages from certain sectors e.g. charities. If you engage (open/click) on an email from us within the last 365 days, we will continue to mail you. You can opt-out at any point either when you receive an email from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided. You can also opt out or request details of where your data was originally obtained from us by CLICKING HERE

Although we do the upmost to validate that the opt-in to the original list owner is valid and correct, we can only do so much to prove this. In some cases, it may be incorrect and if you believe this to be the case, please do contact us and we will investigate promptly.

Along with the email address, the original source may also supply us with other personal information about you, such as age, gender, postcode. This is used to help us profile you and send you relevant marketing messages. If you wish us to remove this information or update it, please contact us by filling in an enquiry HERE.

Marketing Services Providers

We will share your data with the Marketing Services Providers listed below, who will use it for a variety of direct marketing, testing, research & product development purposes. Marketing Services Providers carry out data profiling. They will combine your data with data they get from other sources (including public sources) and use it to create “predictive models”. Marketing Services Providers use these models to try to predict behaviour and preferences (e.g. how likely you are to buy a holiday online or take a particular type of holiday) or likely circumstances (e.g. whether you are eligible for a particular credit card).

Marketing Services Providers will also try to match and then link your data with data that they receive about you from other sources, to make sure that the data they hold about you is correct (e.g. to check whether you have recently moved address).

They share your data, including the profiled data they have created about you, primarily to:

  • help organisations better understand the likely characteristics of their customers (and find others like them);
  • improve the relevancy and appropriateness of an organisation’s marketing to its customers (e.g. offers, its products and services); and
  • help them communicate with their customers more effectively offline and online. This may mean that you receive tailored advertising via direct mail or when you visit a website.

This Section sets out our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal data.

Your Rights


In this Section , we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data.

The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee. You can request this by going to

You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection.

We also use cookies for Site Abandonment. This is where we place a script on a partner’s website and when you visit their website, our script looks to see if an esbconnect owned cookie exists on your browser. If it exists it triggers an email to be send on the behalf of the advertiser but we will be identified as the data controller and sender.

Measuring the effectiveness of our marketing and advertising

Cookies can tell us if you have seen a specific advert, and how long it has been since you have seen it. This information allows us to measure the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns and control the number of times you are shown an advert.

We also use Cookies to measure the effectiveness of our marketing communications, for example by telling us if you have opened a marketing email that we have sent you and if this email was advertising a partner, whether you have then clicked through onto the partner’s website and made a purchase.
