Registration Information

When you are registering with the OfferX website, it is not until you click the submit button that your information is transferred to the website. Once you have completed and submitted all your details you have then "completed" the registration confirming you are a valued member of OfferX.

Marketing Punch may use other reputable partners to provide its services in connection with your registration. However this will not affect your statutory rights under the Data Protection Act.

Use of your personal information

We use your personal information collected via the OfferX website to:

  • Provide you with information about the products and services we offer
  • Provide you with a more personalised service
  • Conduct market research
  • Run competitions and promotions
  • Pass on to selected companies to provide you with other offers and promotions
  • Help other companies profile and extend their databases
  • Facilitate communication between yourself and others

General disclosure of personal information

We share personally identifiable information with selected third-parties. We also share the information that you have answered in the questionnaires with the relevant client. The clients and third parties use this information so as to send you personally-tailored communications.

Once you register with the OfferX website you consent to Marketing Punch Ltd, its clients and selected third parties being able to send you communications via email, post or telephone, until such times as you exercise your right to opt-out of receiving such communications.

The collection of data by Marketing Punch through registration on third party sites may lead to your data also being held by that third party site.

The data that you provide to Marketing Punch is held by both Marketing Punch and the sponsors of the questionnaires that you answer. Marketing Punch holds your data in a central database and this database is only accessed by reference to interest or demographic categories in order to provide you with information about those interests you have selected. The process of supplying you with this information is at all times under the control of Marketing Punch although specialist third party suppliers may carry out the dispatch.

Security and storage of your personal information

Marketing Punch is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities.

The Internet is not a 100% secure medium for communication and, accordingly, Marketing Punch cannot guarantee the security of any information you send to the OfferX website via the Internet. Marketing Punch is not responsible for any loss or damage you or others may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality of such information.

Sponsored Questionnaires and Co-branded sites

At times it may be appropriate for Marketing Punch, its clients or sponsors to contact you with offers and information in respect of your interests or to inform you about subjects upon which you have requested information through your mobile phone or other portable devices.

You give your consent that Marketing Punch or any third party it provides data to may contact you by post or telephone. Where your telephone number is not provided, Marketing Punch or a third party may seek to append your telephone number from a third party source. You accept that Marketing Punch or a selected third party may contact you by phone on our behalf or in partnership with Marketing Punch with an offer of their own, and may choose not to suppress you against the Telephone Preference Service, whilst you are a member of the OfferX website.

Your data may be provided to clients of Marketing Punch to be appended to information they already hold about you for the purpose of contacting you with information about their products and services. When first contacting you these clients will seek your appropriate consent.

Marketing Punch may from time to time use third party suppliers to provide all or part of a service to you. Marketing Punch will only supply such of your personal information as is necessary to enable them to provide the relevant service to you.

You should be aware that such outside service providers might be based in countries outside the European Union whose laws provide for a different standard of protection for your personal data than that provided under English law. In such circumstance Marketing Punch will have in place contractual arrangements which will require your data to be processed at least to a standard compliant with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Except as provided above, Marketing Punch will not provide your personal information to any third party without your prior consent, however, under certain circumstances the force of law may require the provision of information to the legal authorities. In order to maintain the integrity of its website and safeguard the interests of its subscribers Marketing Punch will comply with any such legally binding request.
