Marketing Services Providers use these models to try to predict behaviour and preferences (e.g. how likely you are to buy a holiday online or take a particular type of holiday) or likely circumstances (e.g. whether you are eligible for a particular credit card).
This may mean that you receive advertising from organisations within the industry sectors listed above, that is more relevant to you via direct mail or when you visit a website, mobile app or watch TV. The Marketing Services Providers will not however advertise their own products or services to you.
Marketing Services Providers will also try to match and then link your data with data that they receive about you from other sources, to make sure that the data they hold about you is correct (e.g. to check whether you have recently moved address).
They share your data, including the profiled data they have created about you, primarily to:
•help organisations better understand the likely characteristics of their customers (and find others like them);
•improve the relevancy and appropriateness of an organisation’s marketing to its customers (e.g. offers, its products and services); and
•help them communicate with their customers more effectively offline and online. This may mean that you receive tailored advertising via direct mail, email or when you visit a website.
