We respect your right to privacy and are committed to maintaining it. We only collect, store and process your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2011.
Information we request and hold includes but is not limited to the following:
To provide you with the requested products and/or services including but not limited to processing and fulfilling your order and administering promotions such as competitions and prize draws.
Unless you have not consented to, we may use your personal data in the following manner:
From time to time, to inform you by post, email, SMS or other available means, of products, services, promotions and special offers from our retail channel and Debenhams plc Group of Companies.
By using and/or shopping on the Microsite you consent to the transfer of your personal data to third party data processors located in countries outside of the European Economic Area ('EEA').
We process your payment card details in order to complete your purchase that you made through the Microsite and may in certain instances disclose your personal data to third party credit reference agencies to perform credit checks against you.
We have partnered with various trusted third party companies to provide goods and services to you. Such goods and services can be accessed through links on the Debenhams Personal Finance Microsite to the third party company's microsite. A microsite is a website which is owned and operated by a third party company but is Debenhams branded. Please note that these microsites may be governed by their own terms and conditions and privacy policies.

Phishing is a method used by fraudsters to deceive someone into giving sensitive information. Most of the time phishing will take the form of emails, which purport to be from well-known companies and ask recipients to send their private information. This information is then used for identity theft and fraud.
Debenhams will only ask you to send personal details by email if it is responding to a query you have sent it online and these details are needed to answer your query properly. In this case, there will be a unique reference number in Debenhams' email to you, which refers to your original query. Debenhams will never ask you to send any personal details by email unless you have contacted Debenhams first. If you have not contacted Debenhams, please ignore any email claiming to be from Debenhams which asks for personal details, and let us know about it.
If Debenhams ever requires your personal information other than when you have already contacted Debenhams with a query, for security reasons we will ask you to give us a call.
At Debenhams we take your online security very seriously. Full details of how we protect the information you provide us are given below:
To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By accepting these terms and conditions you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information. You can rest assured that this is done only to confirm your identity, that a credit check is not performed and that your credit rating will be unaffected. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
Your security is our highest priority, so Santander Cards UK Ltd and BDML Connect Ltd offer an additional step to give you peace of mind. Verified by Visa (VbV) and MasterCard®, Secure Code (MSC) (often referred to as 3-D Secure or Payment Authentication) acts like a Chip & Pin for your online purchases and protects you by asking for a secret password.
The new step within the payment process allows your card issuer to fully authenticate cardholders during the online purchase, reducing the likelihood of fraudulent usage.
You have the right to ask what personal data is held by us about you. We may charge a fee for this which will not exceed £10.00. You also have the right to have changed any inaccuracies in the details we hold about you. You may exercise your above rights by means of a request in writing to us at E-commerce (Customer Relations), Debenhams Retail plc, 1 Welbeck Street, London, W1G 0AA or by emailing us at Customer.Enquires@debenhams.com.
