·         Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you.

·         Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

Please see the table below to find out more about the types of lawful basis that we will rely on to process your personal data.

Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing the personal data of our visitors.

Purposes for which we will use your personal data

We have set out below, in a table format, a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.

Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out in the table below. 



We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.

When you place an order, we’ll keep the personal data you give us for five years, so we can comply with our legal and contractual obligations.

We sometimes share your personal data with trusted third parties. 

For example, for fraud management, to handle complaints, to help us personalise our offers to you and so on. 

Here’s the policy we apply to those organisations to keep your data safe and protect your privacy:

·         We provide only the information they need to perform their specific services.

·         They may only use your data for the exact purposes we specify in our contract with them.

·         We work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected at all times.

·         If we stop using their services, any of your data held by them will either be deleted or rendered anonymous.

Examples of the kind of third parties we work with are:

·         IT companies who support our website and other business systems, such as Gateway Ticketing and Microsoft Dynamics;

·         Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers;

·         Fraud prevention agencies;

·         Operational companies such as delivery couriers.

·         Direct marketing companies who help us manage our electronic communications with you, such as Dotmailer, Survey Monkey and Trip Advisor

·         Data insight companies to ensure your details are up to date and accurate and to gain insight of our visitor data, in which case this data is anonymised;

·         Companies helping personalise your journey through our website such as AKA Media Agency, World Pay.

Sharing your data with third parties for their own purposes:

We will only do this in very specific circumstances, for example:

·         With your consent, given at the time you supply your personal data, we may pass that data to a third party for their direct marketing purposes.
·         If you enter a holiday competition and tick a box agreeing that the travel company can send you promotional information directly. Or if we run a joint event with one of our industry partners, and you agree to receive direct communications from them.
·         For fraud management, we may share information about fraudulent or potentially fraudulent activity in our premises or systems. This may include sharing data about individuals with law enforcement bodies.
·         We may also be required to disclose your personal data to the police or other enforcement, regulatory or Government body, in your country of origin or elsewhere, upon a valid request to do so. These requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis and take the privacy of our visitors into consideration.
·         We may, from time to time, expand, reduce or sell KidZania London and this may involve the transfer of divisions or the whole business to new owners. If this happens, your personal data will, where relevant, be transferred to the new owner or controlling party, under the terms of this Privacy Notice.

Sometimes we will need to share your personal data with third parties and suppliers outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

Protecting your data outside the EEA

The EEA includes all EU Member countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

We may transfer personal data that we collect from you to third-party data processors in countries that are outside the EEA such as Australia or the USA.

For example, this might be required in order to fulfil your order, process your payment details or provide support services.

If we do this, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EEA. For example, our contracts with third parties stipulate the standards they must follow at all times. If you wish for more information about these contracts, please contact our Data Protection Compliance Manager.

Any transfer of your personal data will follow applicable laws and we will treat the information under the guiding principles of this Privacy Notice.

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data.

You have the right to request:

·         access to the personal data we hold about you, free of charge in most cases;
·         the correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete;
·         that we stop using your personal data for certain purposes including direct marketing (either through specific channels, or all channels);
·         that we stop any consent-based processing of your personal data after you withdraw that consent;
·         that we delete your data from our records.

To exercise any of your rights, please contact The Data Protection Compliance Manager, KidZania London, Unit 5001, Service Yard B, Ariel Way, Westfield, London W12 7GA, United Kingdom or email datarequest@kidzania.co.uk   If we choose not to action your request, we will explain to you the reasons for our refusal. 

Your right to withdraw consent

Whenever you have given us your consent to use your personal data, you have the right to change your mind at any time and withdraw that consent.

Your right to have your data deleted

Sometimes we will be entitled to keep some of your data, even though you want us to delete them from our database. These exclusions include where processing is necessary for exercising our right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Where we rely on our legitimate interest

In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. 

We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.

Direct marketing

You have the right to stop the use of your personal data for direct marketing activity through all channels, or selected channels. We must always comply with your request.

What we may need from you

To protect the confidentiality of your information, we will ask you to verify your identity before proceeding with any request you make under this Privacy Notice. 

If you have authorised a third party to submit a request on your behalf, we will ask them to prove they have your permission to act.

We may also need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

Time limit to respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. 

There are several ways you can stop direct marketing communications from us:

  • Click the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in any email communication that we send you. We will then stop any further emails from that particular division.
  • Write to The Data Protection Compliance Manager, KidZania London, Unit 5001, Service Yard B, Ariel Way, Westfield, London W12 7GA, United Kingdom or email datarequest@kidzania.co.uk.

Please note that you may continue to receive communications for a short period after changing your preferences while our systems are fully updated.

If you feel that your data has not been handled correctly, or you are unhappy with our response to any requests you have made to us regarding the use of your personal data, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk).

You can contact them by calling 0303 123 1113.

Or go online to www.ico.org.uk/concerns (opens in a new window; please note we can't be responsible for the content of external website)

We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.

We hope this Privacy Notice has been helpful in setting out the way we handle your personal data and your rights to control it.
