Direct marketing and your preferences

East Riding Farm and (if you agree to our sharing your personal information with them) other East Riding Farm Group Companies may wish to provide you with information about new products, promotions, special offers and other information that may interest you and invite you to take part in market research. This communication may occur by mail (unless you have asked us not to do so) and if you agree, by telephone, email or SMS.

East Riding Farm will ensure that any direct marketing or market research that you receive or are contacted about by electronic means will provide a simple means for you to refuse further marketing communications. For example, in emails we will provide you with an ‘unsubscribe’ link, or an email address to which you can send an opt-out request. East Riding Farm and other East Riding Farm Group Companies will stop any marketing to which you object or withdraw your consent to within a reasonable period, in order to allow sufficient time for the change to be administered. You can change your mind at any time about marketing by informing East Riding Farm using the contact details set out at the bottom of this notice.

In such cases East Riding Farm would not necessarily remove all your personal data from its database(s) but would note and respect your changed direct marketing preferences.
