Additional information you provide in your communications with us.
You may consider it necessary to provide information to Verisure about special requirements to receive our services, such as health data (i.e. hearing impairment or physical disability), which are relevant for the efficient management of delivering our alarm monitoring services to you. In such cases, Verisure may have to process this information about your health (e.g. regarding impairment of hearing that prevents you from hearing the siren), or other form of disability. In some cases, there may also be instances where we may have to collect and process this information for other legal requirements, including under employment law.
Such health data is a special category of personal data. This means we must treat it with extra care under applicable data protection requirements.
This special category personal data may be provided by you or indirectly during or following your interractions with us (through e.g., chat, e-mail, text messages, calls to our customer services centre or in person during a maintenance visit recorded by our staff).
Where we process such special category personal data we will do so, based on the following legal basis and purposes where:
- It is necessary to protect your, or someone else's, vital interests:
- we reasonably believe that you or another person are at risk of harm (if we do not process the data about you) and the processing is necessary to protect you or them from harm or to protect physical, mental or emotional well-being;
- we reasonably believe it is necessary to protect the economic well-being of you or another person, where you or that person are less able to protect your own economic well-being by reason of physical or mental injury, illness or disability;
it is necessary for the prevention or detection of an unlawful act; or
we need to carry out our obligations or rights in connection with employment, for example where we need to protect our staff members from harm.
We may also collect such data where we have your consent to do so.
Where you choose to provide health data voluntarily which it is not clear to us obviously falls into any of the categories above, we will discuss with you whether we should retain it and, if necessary (and not for the above purposes) will obtain your consent to future processing of that data.
This paragraph only applies to your special category personal data and should be read in conjunction with our wider privacy notice which governs the collection and processing of all personal information about you. If you need more information on the above, or have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

(For example, the number of mobile devices used to retrieve the pages) and to maintain our website and app administratively in general. The legal basis is our legitimate interest to enable you to visit the website, use our app and ensure functionality and safety of our system.
The information stored in the log files does not allow any direct conclusions to be drawn about you – in particular, we only store the IP addresses in a shortened, anonymised form.

The following data is collected: Your first and last name, home address, email address, telephone number and a general description of your property and lifestyle habits. We obtain this data either directly from you, for example when you use our website, or from third party aggregators to which you may provide such information, such as price comparison websites.

Direct Marketing Communications
We partner with marketing companies for the purpose of identifying and getting in touch with prospective customers. These companies obtain marketing consent on our behalf through third-party websites which organise surveys, competitions or prize draws. If you visit those websites and give your consent to receive Verisure marketing, your contact details will be passed on to us and we will send you marketing communications. See section 5(b) “Marketing, including targeted direct marketing” below for more information.
We use your personal data for the following purposes:
We use your personal data to provide, administer and personalise our products and services, to enable login to our website and app and to provide customer service to you as our customer. For this purpose, we process personal data such as contact details, order and payment details, login details and sensitive personal data if you provide that to us. Our legal basis for this purpose is Performance of a Contract.
GPS position and Geo-location: We process the GPS position of protected locations in order to fulfil our contractual obligations, including to dispatch a private security guard as quickly as possible if necessary.
Depending on your equipment, we can also track the GPS position of your mobile device, only if you accepted it when installing the app and only in order to make you the @Home SOS service, allowing us under some conditions to process an SOS signal launched from your MyVerisure mobile app, and/or send you push notifications relevant to your location. You can turn off your mobile device's geolocation at any time from your device settings (in which case you will not be able to take advantage of all the services offered by the app). Geo-location relies on default maps SDKs, such as Google Maps SDK to geo-localise the device.
Subject to your marketing preferences, including your settings on advertising cookies, we process your personal data for marketing purposes, including for profiling for direct marketing. Our marketing activities include the following:
Email marketing: Sending marketing communications via email about Verisure, including offers about our products and services, newsletters, information about new products and competitions we may organise from time to time. When we send you marketing emails, we also monitor whether you open these emails and/or click on URLs in our emails. We obtain your contact details for email marketing predominantly through our third-party partners: we partner with marketing companies and third-party websites which organise surveys, competitions or prize draws. If you visit those websites and give your consent for your contact details to be passed on to Verisure for marketing purposes, we will add you to our marketing list and send you email marketing.

In this case, our partners remain responsible for how they use your information, for obtaining your marketing consent and for providing you with appropriate information about using your information and sharing this with Verisure Services (UK) Ltd. You can contact us directly if you would like to exercise your data protection rights (for example, if you would like to withdraw your consent), but please note that these partners remain solely responsible for any use of your personal data that does not relate to Verisure, and you should contact them directly if your request is not relevant to Verisure.
Calls: Contacting on the phone prospective customers who have been referred to us by their friends or family. Sometimes, when our customers or prospective customers get in touch with us, they also share with us the contact details of friends or family members who are interested in our products and services. In that instance, we would call them to discuss their security needs and our offerings.
As we explain further above, we will also contact you on the phone if you have requested a quote through our website or through third-party aggregator websites, such as price comparison websites with which we cooperate, in order to fulfil your request, discuss your security needs and provide you a quote for our products and services.

Marketing personalisation: Creating marketing profiles about our customers and prospective customers, in order to understand their preferences in relation to our products and services, and to deliver personalised advertising.
List-based matching: social media providers give us the option to find our existing and prospective customers on their platforms and show them our ads. For example, we provide Facebook with our customers’ email addresses in an encrypted form (hashed); if a customer has a Facebook account with the same email address, Facebook will match this information and will show them our ads on its platform. In some cases, we ask these parties to show our ads only if we think this will be particularly relevant to a customer, based on information they hold on that customer such as demographics (e.g. age), activity on the social media platform or other websites, location or interests. We will not receive though this information about our customers. There can also be cases where we provide social media platforms with your hashed email address, so as to ensure that they do not show our ads to you. We currently use this matching activity with the following parties: Meta Platforms, Nextdoor, TikTok and Snapchat.
Lookalike matching: we also use personal information of our customers to allow social media platforms to find individuals who have a similar profile to our customers and who we expect are interested to find out more about our products and services, so as to show our ads to them. For example, we provide Facebook with hashed email addresses of our customers, which Facebook would match with these customers’ Facebook profiles. Based on these profiles, Facebook will look for other Facebook users who have a similar profile to our customer and would show them our ads. We currently use this matching activity with the following partners: Meta Platforms, TikTok and Snapchat.
Social media advertising: We also use personal data when the users of our website interact with third party social networking features, such as “Like” functions, to serve them with advertisements and engage with them on third party social networks. You can learn more about how these features work, the profile data that we obtain about you, and find out how to opt out, by reviewing the privacy notices of the relevant third party social networks. For example, we currently use Facebook and Instagram for these purposes.
For these marketing activities, we use your personal information such as contact details, browsing habits and visit history, order and payment data, demographic information.
We rely on your consent when the law requires us to do so; for example, we obtain your consent to use advertising cookies and similar technologies and to send you marketing emails. Otherwise, our legal basis for our marketing activities is our legitimate interest to keep you informed of and promote our products and services and to manage our relationship with you as our customer, to the extent this is allowed by law.
