Do you share my data with other organisations?

Page updated: 28 September 2017

We use your data to improve your experience. Our service means that we keep your data inside the BBC unless you ask us or give us your permission to share it, for example:

  • you ask us to or give us your permission
  • to provide you with content and services through a partner’s platform
  • if you agree to marketing emails and personalisation, to show you relevant messaging on your social media platforms, to let you know about BBC programmes and articles we think you’ll enjoy

In exceptional circumstances, we may share your information without your permission if we reasonably believe you might be breaking the law, for example on hate speech, and such disclosure is allowed under the relevant laws, including data protection law.

If you use our website or apps outside the UK, our advertising partners may use your data to show you adverts on BBC services and elsewhere online.

When we share your data outside the BBC…

We will:

  • Always share it in a secure way
  • Make sure it’s treated consistently with our privacy promise
  • Not allow other companies to use it to contact you with their own marketing.

When we share your data within the BBC

We might share your data across different parts of the BBC for research, analysis, marketing or TV Licensing purposes. This might include commercial parts of the BBC, like BBC Worldwide when it’s necessary to give you a service you’ve asked for.
