Why is the BBC Processing Your Personal Data?

We use your personal information you provide us to make Your Somme as personal as possible to you.

Your Somme has been created for the BBC’s Connected Studio by a partner third party developer who may also have access to your information but they will only use that information in accordance with the BBC's instructions and not for their own purposes.

Your personal data for Your Somme will be processed by the BBC in a third-party cloud service. All personal information stored for Your Somme will be securely deleted at the end of the Your Somme pilot on Taster.

The BBC’s online privacy policy applies to Your Somme except as described above.

Please note that Facebook, Twitter and Google operate their own privacy policy and terms and conditions. These are different to the BBC’s privacy policy and Online Terms of Use; specifically, these third parties may use your information for their own business purposes.
