Therefore, the responsibilities described below may be assigned to an individual or maybe taken to apply to the organisation as a whole. The Data Processor has the following responsibilities:

  • Ensure that persons authorised to process Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality
  • Implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk associated with the processing of Personal Data
  • Obtain the prior specific or general written authorisation of the Controller before engaging another Processor

  • Maintain a record of all categories of processing activities carried out on behalf of a Controller
  • Cooperate, on request, with the supervisory authority in the performance of its tasks
  • Ensure that any person acting under the authority of the Processor who has access to Personal Data does not process them except on instructions from the Controller

  • Designate a data protection officer where required by the GDPR, publish their details and communicate them to the supervisory authority

2.1 Types of Data / Privacy Policy Scope

Personal Data means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of Personal Data about you which we have grouped together below. Not all of the following types of data will necessarily be collected from you but this is the full scope of data that we collect and when we collect it from you:

  • Profile/Identity Data: This is data relating to your first name, last name, date of birth.
  • Contact Data: This is data relating to your phone number, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers.
  • Communications Data: This is your preferences in receiving marketing information and other information from us.
  • Technical Data: This is your IP address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, operating system and platform, and other technology on the devices you use to engage with us.
  • Customer Support Data: This includes feedback and survey responses.
  • Usage Data: information about how you use our website, products and services.
  • Personal Financial Data: This includes annual salary and current savings

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as “30% of our customers are currently saving £x.” Aggregated Data could be derived from your Personal Data but is not considered Personal Data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your Personal Data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as Personal Data which will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may also aggregate data to enable research or analysis so that we can better understand and serve you and others. For example, we may conduct research on your demographics and usage. Although this aggregated data may be based in part on Personal Data, it does not identify you personally. We may share this type of anonymous data with others, including service providers, our affiliates, agents and current and prospective business partners.

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

There are a number of justifiable reasons under the GDPR that allow the collection and processing of Personal Data. The main avenues we rely on are:

  • Consent: Certain situations allow us to collect your Personal Data, such as when you tick a box that confirms you are happy to receive email newsletters from us, or ‘opt-in’ to a service.
  • Contractual Obligations: We may require certain information from you in order to fulfil our contractual obligations and provide you with the promised service.
  • Legal Compliance: We’re required by law to collect and process certain types of data, such as fraudulent activity or other illegal actions.
  • Legitimate Interest: We might need to collect certain information from you to be able to meet our legitimate interests – this covers aspects that can be reasonably expected as part of running our business, that will not have a material impact on your rights, freedom or interests. Examples could be your address so that we know where to deliver something to, or your name so that we have a record of who to contact moving forward.

If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact our Data Protection Officer.

If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.


4.1 What Control Do I Have Over 13th Wimbledon Use Of My Personal Data?

We do not require you to make an account on the platform but we do create a ‘shadow’ account where we store your Personal Data in response to questions we ask of you. There is a button on the platform which can allow you to delete this shadow account and this will delete all of the Personal Data we have stored about you. For more information please contact our Data Protection Officer.

4.2 How Does 13th Wimbledon Protect Customer Data?

We are concerned with keeping your data secure and protecting it from inappropriate disclosure. We implement a variety of security measures to ensure the security of your Personal Data on our systems, including encryption and bank-level security. Any Personal Data collected by us is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems and are bound by obligations of confidentiality. If and when we use subcontractors to store your data, we will not relinquish control of your Personal Data or expose it to security risks that would not have arisen had the data remained in our possession. However, unfortunately, no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of 13th Wimbledon to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your Personal Data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Personal Data you transmit to us. Any such transmission is done at your own risk. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please contact us.

4.3 Opting Out Of Marketing Promotions

You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” button found within one of our marketing emails OR by contacting us at any time

Where you opt-out of receiving these marketing messages, we will continue to retain other Personal Data provided to us as a result of interactions with us not related to your marketing preferences.

4.4 How to Request your Data and the Process for Obtaining it

You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, if your request is clearly unfounded, we could refuse to comply with your request.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure you have the right to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.


5.1 Will We Share Your Data With Third Parties?

We may share non-personal data with third parties. We may share your Personal Data with subcontractors (only when necessary and with your consent) or affiliates (subject to confidentiality obligations to use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them and pursuant to our instructions).

We may also share Personal Data with interested parties in the event that 13th Wimbledon anticipates a change in control or the acquisition of all or part of our business or assets or with interested parties in connection with the licensing of our technology.

If 13th Wimbledon is sold or makes a sale or transfer, we may, in our sole discretion, transfer, sell or assign your Personal Data to a third party as part of or in connection with that transaction. Upon such transfer, the Privacy Policy of the acquiring entity may govern the further use of your Personal Data. In all other situations, your data will still remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy (as amended from time to time).

We may share your Personal Data at any time if required for legal reasons or in order to enforce our Terms of Use for our Site/Terms of Subscription or this Privacy Policy.

This Site may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our Site, we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.


Home Buying Buddy site account – After 2 years inactivity, defined by the last login date.

We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. We may retain your Personal Data for a longer period than usual in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.


This website is suitable for people of all ages


We currently store all personal data within the UK. If we need to transfer and process your personal data in countries other than the UK, such as the EU countries or the United States we will put in place safeguards to ensure that your personal data remains protected.

If your personal data is transferred outside the EEA, it will only be transferred to countries that have been identified as providing adequate protection for EEA data (like New Zealand), or to a third party where we have approved transfer mechanisms in place to protect your personal data – i.e., by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, or by ensuring the entity is Privacy Shield certified (for transfers to US-based third parties). 


We keep our Privacy Policy under review and will place any updates on this webpage. This version is dated 19th Dec 2023. By using 13th Wimbledon, you consent to the collection and use of data by us as set out in this Privacy Policy. Continued access or use of 13th Wimbledon shall constitute your express acceptance of any modifications to this Privacy Policy.


All uses of the word “including” mean “including but not limited to” and the enumerated examples are not intended to in any way limit the term which they serve to illustrate. Any email addresses set out in this policy may be used solely for the purpose for which they are stated to be provided, and any unrelated correspondence will be ignored. Unless otherwise required by law, we reserve the right to not respond to emails, even if they relate to a legitimate subject matter for which we have provided an email address. As a matter of common sense, you are more likely to get a reply if your request or question is polite, reasonable and there is no relatively obvious another way to deal with or answer your concern or question (e.g. FAQs, other areas of our website etc.).

Our staff are not authorised to contract on behalf of 13th Wimbledon, waive rights or make representations (whether contractual or otherwise). If anything contained in an email from a 13th Wimbledon address contradicts anything in this policy, our terms or any official public announcement on our website, or is inconsistent with or amounts to a waiver of any 13th Wimbledon rights, the email content shall be read down to grant precedence to the latter. The only exception to this is genuine correspondence expressed to be from the 13th Wimbledon legal department.


Please also see our Terms of Use which set out the terms, disclaimers, and limitations of liability governing your use of 13th Wimbledon.
