    Shipping your meals / customer account.

    We are pleased to be able to supply you with our meals. To enable you to order from us, we will create a customer account for you after your registration. In order to protect your customer account from access by third parties, we store your username and password. In order to be able to deliver the meals to you as desired, we store your contact data, order and delivery time and payment information. You can voluntarily provide your phone number so that we can contact you in case of delays or problems delivering your meals. Please note that you may deactivate your account at any time as per our terms.

    Paying for your recurring meal plan.

    Your payment details will be sent to the appropriate payment service provider depending on the payment method you choose. The payment service provider is responsible for your payment data. Information, particularly about the authority responsible for the respective payment service provider, the contact information for the data protection officers of the payment service providers and the categories of personal data that are processed by the payment service providers, can be obtained from the following addresses:

    Stripe - https://stripe.com/gb/privacy

    You authorise us to charge each payment to the payment card you use to make your initial payment. If we are unable to complete a charge using your chosen payment card, you authorise us to charge a payment to any other payment card stored.

    Customer Care

    You can contact us via email, phone, or facebook message to ask us questions, send us messages or make complaints. We only process your personal data in this context in order to get in contact with you the way you wish and to answer or fulfil your request or complaint.

    We may also use your personal data, such as your name, email address, phone number and product information to identify and call you to find out more about your experience with us and how you think it could be improved. We may also call you or contact you via SMS after you have deactivated your customer account so that we can find out if you would like to re-activate it (or change how you have used our services in the past). We may also send you reminders via SMS when one of your payment cards is close to expiry, your payment failed or in relation to other transactional matters. All of our calls will be recorded for training and monitoring purposes, and you will have the right to opt out from receiving these calls or SMS at any time by contacting us at info@bozu.co.uk or by informing the agent on the call.

    Participation in competitions

    If you take part in one of our competitions, we collect data that is necessary to carry out the competition. This usually includes an individual competition entry (e.g. a comment or a photo), as well as your name and your contact details. It is possible that we transmit this data to our competition partners, e.g. to send you the prize. The processing and transfer of data may vary depending on the competition and is therefore specifically described in the respective conditions of participation. Participation in the competition and the associated data collection is, of course, voluntary.

    Comments on our blog

    You have the option of leaving comments on our blog. Your comment, details at the time of writing the comment, email address and - if you do not post anonymously - username will be stored for the comment function on our web pages. Your IP address is also stored. Storage is necessary for us to be able to defend ourselves against liability claims in cases of possible publication of illegal content.

    Sending our newsletter.

    You have the option of subscribing to our newsletter in different ways, e.g. when registering your meal plan with us.

    Advertising information will only be sent to your email address as part of our newsletter if you are an existing customer or have agreed to use your email address for this purpose. Of course, you can revoke your consent to be sent newsletters at any time, e.g. by clicking the unsubscribe link in the newsletter, updating the communication setting in your customer account or by sending a message to info@bozu.co.uk

    For users who are not already existing customers, we use the double opt-in procedure for subscribing to our newsletter. This means that after your registration we will send you an email to the email address provided asking you to confirm that you would like to receive the newsletter. We also store your IP address and the time of your registration and confirmation. This enables us to prove your registration and, if necessary, clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

    Other advertising by us

    We use the email address, telephone number and postal address provided by the customer to inform on similar product and service offers by email, SMS and mail. If you do not wish to receive any further advertising information by email, SMS or mail, you can object to the use of your contact data for advertising purposes at any time without incurring any costs other than for transmission according to the basic rates.

    You can submit your revocation for electronic marketing through our contact channels at info@bozu.co.uk. It is also possible to change communication preferences at any time in the customer account area when subscribing to the newsletter with an existing customer account.

    We may also send postal marketing messages from time to time via trusted third parties. We rely on legitimate interest to send postal marketing to prospective customers and reactivation offers to customers who have left us in the previous two years. You can opt out of postal mail marketing via the methods outlined on the specific postal promotional material you receive. Please note, individuals are not able to opt out of postal marketing on our website.

    If you are a new customer, and where we permit selected third parties to use your data, we (or they) will contact you by post only if you have consented to this.

    Recruiting friends

    If you are already one of our customers, you can also invite your friends to order our meal plans. As we do not want to bother anyone, it is important that your friend wants to receive information about our services. Therefore, please ensue your friend contacts us directly expressing their interest in ordering our meal plans and please just advise them to quote your Order ID number with us to ensure we know they have come directly via your recommendation.
