How we market products and services to you📦

We and our Business Partners may carry out marketing activities with you, by email, SMS, push notifications, mail or phone calls. This is when we use your personal data to send you details about products, services, and offers provided by us or our Business Partners, for example: (1) rewards programs, loyalty privileges, and charity offerings, or (2) promotional events, competitions and lucky draws. We shall provide you with personalised marketing (including by aggregating your data with data of others or through social media advertising partners) so that you can enjoy the products and/or services which you really like. Your consent to our marketing activities is important because it enables us to improve our products and services and generatebusiness. However, it's in your control if you want us to stop. You can opt out from receiving such marketing messages on the Trust App.

Protecting your data🔐

We have technical and organisational security measures in place to protect your personal data. We work hard to keep your data secure, which you have enTRUSTed to us (see what we did there?) Here are some examples of the security measures we use:

  • Firewalls.

  • Intrusion detection systems (IDS) - like security cameras, IDSs monitor information flows for patterns of activity that don’t look normal and might signal an attack on our website, Trust App or other electronic channels.

  • Encryption, which converts your data into a code that can only be read by us and some of our trusted partners who need access to it - only on need-to-know basis! We encrypt using high standards of security technology.

  • Strong data encryption algorithms, using encryption keys unique to us, and proper encryption key management. We also need your help to keep your personal data secure. Please let us know immediately if your personal data may have been lost or stolen, or if you think someone has used it without your permission. Together, we can protect your data!

Automated decisions🤖

Sometimes we use computers to help us make decisions when processing your application for our products and services. This can help us to make our processes more efficient. This means some decisions happen automatically based on the personal data collected about you, based on the rules followed by the computer system designed to make fair and objective decisions.

Aggregation of data🤹‍♀️

Sometimes we combine information from groups of customers to create a profile group for research or analysis, or to help with general marketing. This data is anonymised, but if we end up connecting this to you personally, then we will protect your data as set out in this notice. We may share and further aggregate data with data of our third-party partners for the same purposes.

How long do we keep your information?🗄

We may keep your data as long as you’re a Trust customer and for up to 7 years (or longer if the laws require us to!) after the end of your contractual relationship with us. You may ask us to permanently delete your information, but please understand that we can’t do this if we need to retain it for legal or regulatory purposes, or if we need it to provide a service to you that you still want.

Your rights ⚖

You can access your data, update and correct your data, give feedback, raise a query, and withdraw your consent via the Trust App or by any other means that we may provide. If you need any help to do any of these things, please contact our customer service team via our in-app live chat or in-app call. You can also contact Trust’s Data Protection Officer by emailing Unfortunately, if you withdraw consent, we may not be able to continue providing products or services to you. This may result in the end of some or all our relationships with you. We may be unable to provide you with access to some of your personal data — if so, we will try to provide you with an explanation unless it's unlawful for us to do so.

Changes to this notice 📑

Change happens! So sometimes we might need to change this notice. If we do, you will see the updated version on our website or on the Trust App. If we think the changes are significant, we will let you know that we have made changes.
