We use this information to ensure a stable connection, the efficient use of our website, and also to evaluate system security and stability. This is in accordance with data protection law in Lidl’s legitimate interest. If you have enabled geolocation services in your browser or other settings, our website may use this function to offer location specific services such as our store locator function. Your location data will only be used for this function.
Any personal or business information (i.e. e-mail address or name), which you voluntarily provide in the context of our online services (newsletter, competitions, etc.) will only be processed for the purpose or purposes for which they were collected. Lidl may use third party service providers to process information in these circumstances and will ensure these providers comply with data protection law.
Our website gives you the option to sign up to our newsletter if you want to keep up-to-date with our products and offers. If you consent to receive our newsletter, you will be asked to provide your name and e-mail address. You will be asked to confirm by email that you would like to use this service before we begin sending you updates. We may use your information to assess your use of our website, apps, or those of our affiliates. We may associate your usage with your email address so we can send you information and updates most relevant to your interests and use. The information you provide will only be used for the purpose of sending you updates, offers, and showing you content based on your use or interests. In this way, we try to make sure we are giving you the best possible online experience. Your personal information will be kept for as long as you want to receive newsletters and updates from Lidl and it will be stored exclusively within the EU.
Lidl collects information from job applicants who apply via our online careers portal. This information is uploaded onto our applicant database and is held solely with applicants’ consent.

We have put in place adequate security and technical measures, which we review on a regular basis, to ensure the safety and security of your personal information.
