Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us.

It is Southern Co-op’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. Accordingly, we have developed this privacy policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose and otherwise make use of personal information. We have outlined our privacy policy below.

We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.

Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.

We will collect and use personal information solely for fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other ancillary purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.  If you are a member Southern Co-op, you are a part owner and so you will have a say in how the business is run and an opportunity to vote on important issues. Accordingly, we are obliged to send you membership and governance related messages, e.g voting papers, Share of the Profit payments, member announcements and member meeting invitations.

From time to time we would like to send you information about Southern Co-op’s businesses. This might include general information and exclusive offers and benefits and opportunities to help us improve our offers in relation to goods and services which we believe may be of interest to you. We will only send you this information if you have consented to us doing so.

Southern Co-op will never sell your personal details to a third party, however, from time to time we would like to make you aware of the work of selected partners that we are supporting and working with but we will only send you this information if you have consented to us doing so

We accept that personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.

We will protect personal information by using reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

We will only retain personal information for as long as necessary for the fulfilment of those purposes.

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained. Southern Co-op may change this privacy policy in accordance with the law from time to time at Southern Co-op’s sole discretion.
