Privacy & Security
The personal data we collect about you may include your name, date of birth or age, email, address, telephone number, debit/credit card details and marketing preferences.
We will process your personal data in order for us to fulfil our contractual obligations to you (e.g. to provide you with the service you have asked for, such as the virtual events), for compliance with our legal and regulatory obligations, where you have consented to us processing your personal data (e.g. to receive marketing and updates from us) and where such processing is necessary for the fulfilment of our legitimate interests. Our legitimate interests include, being able to effectively communicate with you about the services you have asked us to provide, keep effective records, sell part or all of our business to a future purchaser, to effectively manage and administer our business, to ensure the safety and security of the Waitrose Limited Food and Drink Virtual Festival Service and those that use it, and sending you marketing and updates.
In certain circumstances, it may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), such as the USA. This will usually be the case where our trusted third party partners and suppliers are based in non-EEA countries. Where we transfer any personal data to a country outside the EEA, we will always do so in compliance with applicable laws (including data protection laws). This will normally involve transferring your personal data to a non-EEA country:
(i) on the basis that the recipient country offers an adequate level of protection for your personal data;
(ii) under EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses; or
(iii) under an approved data sharing scheme, such as the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.
We will not retain your personal data for longer than necessary to provide you with the services that you have requested, or if longer, the period of time required by applicable laws and regulations.
The virtual events will be recorded for safety and security purposes. The recordings will capture only the images and sounds of the Waitrose or the supplier representative presenting at the event.

These recordings will also be held by Star Group Live and shared to the suppliers of the food and drink presented throughout the Waitrose Limited Food and Drink Virtual Festival. By joining a session, you agree to such recordings.

The courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute arising under or in relation to them. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a court, then that provision shall be deemed severed from the rest of these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. No delay or failure by us to exercise any powers, rights or remedies under these Terms will operate as a waiver of them, nor will any single or partial exercise of these powers, rights or remedies preclude any other or further exercise of them.
Except as expressly provided in these Terms, we exclude all representations, conditions and warranties whether express or implied (by statute or otherwise) to the fullest extent permitted by law. We do not seek to exclude or limit our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so.
