This Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) together with the Competition Terms & Conditions explains when and why we collect personal information about people who enter the Competition, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.  Personal information is any information about you from which you can be identified (such as your name or your email address).

Our details

We are Valeo Confectionery Limited (company number 02025064) a manufacturer of confectionery products  in the UK. Our registered office address is at 38 Barnard Road, Bowthorpe, Norwich, Norfolk NR5 9JP, UK.  We are the data controller for the purposes of data protection laws, in respect of your personal information collected and used through you entering the Competition.  We dictate the purpose for which your personal information is used and how we use your personal information.  See “Questions or complaints” section below for more information on how to contact us. 

As described in the section below entitled “How is your personal information shared?”, we may share your personal information with other organisations, such as other entities in the Valeo Confectionery Family, that may receive and process your personal information as a controller in their own right. 

What personal information do we gather from you and how is it collected?

We gather personal information from you such as your first/last name that you provide voluntarily when you enter the Competition. If proof of identity is required, we may also request a copy of your passport or driver’s licence. The postal address, email address and telephone number of all winning entrants may also be requested for the purposes of the administration of this promotion and to send out the Competition prize. The personal information of Competition entrants provided to us may also be gathered for any other purpose for which an entrant has consented.    

If you provide us with personal information about another person e.g. their name, photograph or any other personal information that could identify them, you must ensure that before you provide us with their personal information, you have their agreement to do so and that they are aware of the ways in which we use personal information as set out in this Policy.

How is your personal information used and on what legal bases?

Our main aim in gathering your personal information is to provide you with a customised service. In particular, your personal information may be used by us, our employees and service providers and disclosed to third parties for the following purposes. For each of these purposes, we have set out the legal basis on which we use your personal information. 


Legal Basis

To provide you with the services we offer (including any promotions or competitions).

This is in our legitimate interest (i.e., the provision of the services to you), and depending on the circumstances, to perform a contract between you and us.

To communicate with you and other individuals and to carry out your requests and respond to your communications.

This is in our legitimate interest (i.e., the provision and support of social media pages).

To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.

This is to perform a contract between you and us.

To comply with any legal or regulatory obligations

This is in our legitimate interests (i.e., protection of our business, employees and customers) and for compliance with legal obligations to which we are subject.

We may also use aggregate personal information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring our social media pages in order to help us develop the pages and our services. These statistics will not include any data that can be used to identify any individual.

How is your personal information shared?

We do not share personal information with third parties unless certain safeguards and contractual arrangements are in place.  We may share personal information within the Valeo Confectionery Family and certain selected companies.  By “Valeo Confectionery  Family”, we mean the companies within the same group as Valeo Confectionery Limited. The Valeo Confectionery Family will process your personal information in accordance with this Policy and all applicable data protection legislation.

The selected companies are those that provide technical assistance and support and perform other functions to support our marketing activities or a promotional partner who may be supplying an element of the Competition prize. Our third-party service providers include our IT service providers and marketing agencies.  In some cases, third party providers will be acting as a data controller of your information and in such circumstances, we advise you to read their Privacy Policy.  If any of our third-party service providers shares your information with us, we will use it in accordance with this Policy.

All selected companies may have access to personal information if needed to perform such functions but will only be permitted by us to use such personal information for the purpose of performing that function (which may include one to which you have expressly given your consent) and not for any other purpose.

We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation, or if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our customers. However, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

We reserve the right to use or disclose any personal information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to fulfil your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement or regulatory investigation. Save for this, we do not sell, rent, transfer or disclose personal information we have collected from you to third parties outside the Valeo Confectionery Family.

Transferring your information outside of the UK

Whilst we do not anticipate transferring your personal data outside of the UK, due to the global nature of our business, as part of the services offered to you through our competitions, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the UK (such a country is called a “third country”).  Data protection law imposes restrictions on the transfer of personal information outside of the UK but such transfers can be made if the country to which we may transfer the data has an adequate level of protection for your rights, there are appropriate safeguards or a contract is in place allowing the transfer to take place or the transfer is necessary for reasons set out in the data protection laws.

Some countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. If we transfer your information outside of the UK in this way, we will take reasonable steps and implement measures to ensure that appropriate security safeguards are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy and in accordance with UK data protection law. 

Data breach

The Data Protection Act 2018 requires us as Data Controller of your personal information to notify any breach of personal information to the applicable regulator, and in certain instances to you, the data subject, which we will do as appropriate. 


Our social media pages are designed and intended for use by people aged 18 and over.  You must be 18 in order to “Like” our pages.  Please do not attempt to do so if you are under 18.  Although we are not responsible for determining the age of our user, we reserve the right to check an individual’s age and deny access to any of our competitions, prizes, samples or other content to anyone under 18.  We will delete any personal information which has been inadvertently collected from anyone under 18 as soon as possible after we are aware of it.

Protection of your personal information and retention

We keep your personal information confidential.  We use appropriate technical, physical, legal and organisational measures, which comply with data protection laws to keep personal information secure.  For example, all outgoing and incoming email is scanned for viruses.

We will retain your personal information for as long as is necessary for purposes for which it was collected. The precise period will depend on the reason why it was collected; for competitions it will be retained until the competition has been administered (unless you have consented otherwise) or as long as the law requires whichever is the later.  Once the retention period for each situation has expired, we will take all reasonable steps to destroy or erase from our systems all personal data that we no longer require in accordance with all our applicable record retention schedules and policies.
