Generating Customer Feedback & Reviews:
Collecting feedback and reviews, demonstrates how consumers have rated their experience with your company, and so forms a normal and crucial part of the customer journey. Feedback is a way for businesses to understand how they can improve their customer service and provide better marketing communications in the future.
Does a business require consent to collect feedback from a customer?
No. As customer feedback is market research, you can contact a customer about a specific sale or service without consent if it is directly linked to that transaction. You can’t then use that information to market to the customer in any way without gaining their consent. Your reviews provider is the Data Processor and if they do not require a customer to log in or create an account to leave a review, you will not need to get your customers to opt-in in order to send a feedback request.
Subject to applicable laws in your jurisdiction, we may also disclose Personal Information about you to others (given your consent) as we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law or regulation, including laws or regulations outside your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to requests from public authorities and law enforcement officials, including officials outside your country of residence; (d) to assist or support theft investigations involving Spatan Tool UK products or property, (e) to enforce any of our terms and conditions or policies; (f) to protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates and subsidiaries; (g) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of Spatan Tool UK, its affiliates and subsidiaries, you or others; or (h) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
We may also transfer Personal Information to an affiliate, a subsidiary or a third party in the event of any reorganisation, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of Spatan Tool UK’s business, assets or stock, including, without limitation, in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceeding.
