WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers which are located within the European Economic Area (EEA).
If at any time we transfer your personal information to, or store it in, countries located outside of the EEA (for example, if our hosting services provider changes) we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place for that transfer and storage as required by applicable law. This is because some countries outside of the EEA do not have adequate data protection laws equivalent to those in the EEA.
If you use our services whilst you are outside the EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with those services.
HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR
We will not keep your information for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which we collect it unless we believe that the law or other regulation requires us to preserve it.
If you have registered a Krispy Kreme Rewards account with us we will store your personal information for as long as your account is open. We regularly review inactive accounts and actively initiate reactivation of your account by sending you reminders. If your account is dormant for more than 2 years we'll close your account and delete your account information data.
Where you have placed an order with us we will store your personal information for 1 year from the date of delivery of your order.
If you have signed up to receive email marketing from us we will store your personal information for as long as you are subscribed to our email marketing list. If you unsubscribe or your Krispy Kreme Rewards account is closed, we will keep your email address on our suppression list to ensure that we do not send you marketing emails.
If you have contacted us with a complaint or query we will store your personal information for as long as is reasonably required to resolve your complaint or query.
We retain technical information from Google Analytics for 18 months from the date it is collected.
The exceptions to the above are where:
we need your personal information to establish, bring or defend legal claims or to comply with a legal or regulatory requirement;
- the law requires us to hold your personal information for a longer period, or delete it sooner;
- you exercise your right to have the information erased (where it applies) and we do not need to hold it in connection with any of the reasons permitted or required under the law or you exercise your right to require us to retain your personal information for a period longer than our stated retention period (see further Right to restrict processing below);; or
- in limited cases, the law permits us to keep your personal information indefinitely provided we put certain protections in place.
When it is no longer necessary to retain your data, we will delete the personal information that we hold about you from our systems. After that time, we may aggregate the data (from which you cannot be identified) and retain it for analytical purposes.
If we collect your personal information, the length of time we retain it is determined by a number of factors including the purpose for which we use that information and our obligations under other laws. We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary.
SECURITY AND LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our website / mobile app and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal information, we put in place reasonable and appropriate controls to ensure that it remains secure against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, or unauthorised access.
Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access your account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Our website / mobile app may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This policy does not apply to those other websites‚ so we encourage you to read their privacy statements. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites even if you access them using links that we provide. In addition, if you linked to our website from a third party website, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party website and recommend that you check the policy of that third party website.

You have the right to withdraw your consent (opt out) at any time to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes. Please see Withdrawing your consent and Objecting to our use of your personal information below for further details on how you can do this.
We may make automated decisions about you based on your personal information. We do this so that we can provide you with personalised offers, discounts or recommendations based on your shopping history, website browsing history, and other information you provide to us (none of these will have a legal or other significant effect on you).
You have a number of rights in relation to your personal information under data protection law. In relation to certain rights, we may ask you for information to confirm your identity and, where applicable, to help us to search for your personal information. Except in rare cases, we will respond to you within one month from either (i) the date that we have confirmed your identity or (ii) where we do not need to do this because we already have this information, from the date we received your request.

- Withdrawing your consent: Where we rely on your consent as the legal basis for processing your personal information you may withdraw your consent at any time. If you would like to withdraw your consent to receiving any direct marketing to which you previously opted-in, you can do so using our unsubscribe tool in the relevant communication. If you withdraw your consent, our use of your personal information before you withdraw is still lawful.
- Objecting to our use of your personal information: Where we rely on our legitimate interests as the legal basis for processing your personal information you may object to us using your information for these purposes. Except for the purposes for which we are sure we can continue to process your personal information, we will temporarily stop processing your personal information in line with your objection until we have investigated the matter. If we agree that your objection is justified in accordance with your rights under data protection laws, we will permanently stop using your data for those purposes. Otherwise we will provide you with our justification as to why we need to continue using your data.
- Automated decisions: In certain circumstances, you may contest a decision made about you based on automated processing.
- Erasing your personal information or restricting its processing: In certain circumstances, you may ask for your personal information to be removed from our systems. Unless there is a reason that the law allows us to use your personal information for longer, we will make reasonable efforts to comply with your request. You may also ask us to restrict processing your personal information where you believe it is unlawful for us to do so, you have objected to its use and our investigation is pending or you require us to keep it in connection with legal proceedings. In these situations we may only process your personal information whilst its processing is restricted if we have your consent or are legally permitted to do so, for example for storage purposes, to protect the rights of another individual or company or in connection with legal proceedings.
- Transferring your personal information in a structured data file (“data portability"): Where we rely on your consent as the legal basis for processing your personal information or need to process it in connection with your contract you may ask us to provide you with a copy of that information in a structured data file.

You can also ask us to send your personal information directly to another service provider, and we will do so if this is technically possible. We may not provide you with a copy of your personal information if this concerns other individuals or we have another lawful reason to withhold that information.
