10. Sharing Information With Third Parties

Except as expressly set out in this Privacy Notice or under the terms and conditions of any Quickmart programs or promotions, we will not share your personal data with third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. Notwithstanding, we may share your information with the following categories of partners as an essential part of being able to provide our services to you:

12. Non-Quickmart Brands

If you give your contact details and any other personal data at one of the brand counters in our stores, you may be giving the information to that company rather than to Quickmart.

Each company has its own privacy policy which may not be the same as ours, so we advise that you check who is collecting your personal data and how they will use it before signing up to receive offers or information. Similarly, if you click through to another company’s website via a link on the Website, check you are happy with that company’s privacy policy before giving your personal data.


13. Will We Transfer Your Information Overseas?

The information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a location outside Kenya. In certain cases, it may also be processed by service providers operating outside Kenya. Such service providers may be engaged in cloud data storage, IT services, processing of payments, data analytics and other services.

When we transfer your information outside Kenya, we will do so responsibly and in compliance with the data protection laws.

15. How We Protect Your Personal data

We are committed to ensuring that your personal data is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable technical and organizational measures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. These measures include:

  1. Use of encryption technologies;
  2. Implementation of access controls;
  3. Use of firewall solutions and intrusion detection systems;
  4. Enforcing secure back-up;
  5. Data protection training to our staff members;
  6. Data minimization; and
  7. Undertaking security audits.

We have a data protection policy that we enforce within our organization. Our staff are trained to respect data privacy.

All the information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers.

Any payment transactions will be anonymized or encrypted.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the App or Website, we will securely store the password in encrypted format. You are also responsible for keeping the password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

16. Marketing

We may use your information to form a view on your shopping preferences and interests. This supports us in deciding which products to stock in our stores and what promotions and offers may be relevant to you.

You will receive marketing messages from us if you have requested information from us or purchased goods or services from us or you are a member of our Loyalty Program and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.

By signing up and shopping on our Website or App, you expressly consent that we may observe your shopping preferences and interests and we may share relevant promotions and offers with you. You may opt out of promotional messages and offers at any time. You are also entitled to close an account you have with us.

We may also market to you if we have received your express consent to do so including where we have collected your details in connection with the Loyalty Program or in connection with a competition or other promotion in which you agreed to receive marketing communication from us.

You can stop receiving marketing messages from us at any time by:

  1. Sending ‘STOP’ to *456*9*5# to opt out of our SMS promotional messages; or
  2. Unsubscribing on the Website or the App; or
  3. Clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link within an email; or
  4. Contacting our Customer Care Team;

Once you do this, we will ensure that you do not receive further marketing messages.

Stopping marketing messages will not stop service communications.

Online Advertisements

We may engage in online advertising to help you see and find our products.

We may target Quickmart banners and advertisements to you when you are on other websites and apps. We may do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and ad exchanges, and we use a range of advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some websites and social networks.

The banners and ads you see will be based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of the Website or the App (for example, your Website search history, App usage and the content you read on the Website or App) or on Website or App banners or ads you have previously clicked on.

17. Building a Picture of You

We look at your personal details, like what items you look at or buy, how you browse our Website, how you use our App, and how you engage with Quickmart. We do this to see how well our advertisements are working and to give you better offers, tips, and information on different platforms like online advertisements and social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram.

We also carry out responsible data analytics on the information we have about our customers in order to understand who they are, how they use our services, and how they interact with us. This helps us plan our business, for example, deciding on stock assortment, re-order levels and staff requirements.

Our goal is to provide a similar experience online as you would have in our physical stores, make our advertisements more effective and track how well our business is doing. We do not do this in a way that enables individual customers to be identified. It is not related to the direct marketing or special offers that we send to you based on your use of Quickmart services.

You have the right to object to the way we use your data if you believe our legitimate interest in doing it is outweighed by your right to privacy. As this type of analysis is important in enabling Quickmart to operate efficiently and we carry it out in a way that does not identify individuals, we believe it has no impact on your privacy.

18. Information We Get From External Companies

From time to time, we may supplement the information we hold about you with data from other commercially available sources that collate and update data. This helps us keep our records up to date and learn more about our customers so we can continue to improve our products and services to them. We only work with organisations that obtain their data legally from publicly available or consent-based sources.

Occasionally, for marketing purposes, we may obtain lists of potential customers from external companies. We will only deal with reputable companies that take privacy and data protection as seriously as we do and have obtained consent to share this data with us. We will always let you choose not to receive further marketing material from us.

19. How Long Will We Keep Your Information?

Personal data processed by Quickmart in line with this Privacy Notice will be deleted or rendered anonymous (such that it will no longer be possible to identify you);

  1. seven (7) years since your last engagement with us or our services;
  2. without undue delay, upon you requesting that your Quickmart account profile is deleted;
  3. after seven (7) years for all subscribed services from our last interaction with you (that is where you have not used our subscription services for seven (7) years).

In relation to financial transactions (including those made through our Website or App), your personal data will be held for seven (7) years from the date of the transaction.

Notwithstanding, information may be held for:

  1. a longer period of time where there is a legal or regulatory reason to do so (in which case it will be deleted once no longer required for the legal or regulatory purpose); or
  2. a shorter period where the individual expressly objects to the processing of their personal data; or
  3. a shorter period where we deem it necessary.
