When you log in, configure and/or use the Worcester Bosch IAR Portal provided by TradeHelp (the ‘Software’), we (TradeHelp) collect information from you in order to help configure your Software to the best effect for you, to support and contact you in connection with your use of the Software and connected benefits, and to inform you about products or services which we think may be of interest to you.
Use of the Software entitles you to take advantage of the benefits of membership of the TradeHelp Network, including discounted business support services, discounted merchant prices and manufacturer cash back. If you wish to take advantage of these benefits (which are optional and about which we will provide you with information) then the terms in Schedule 1 below will also apply.
We are the data controller responsible in respect of the information collected about you as a user of the Software and, unless we are legally required to do so and other than the data listed below which is shared with Worcester Bosch, we will not share your data with third parties without your express consent. You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please email us at [email protected]. There may be a small charge for this service. Please let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
Save for information relating to any TradeHelp finance quote, we are only a data processor in respect of the information collected by you through the Software. Such data is encrypted and transmitted to secure cloud/server storage and is not used by us other than to assist you with any enquiries or data retrieval. Your customer data remains within your control and responsibility, as does the requirement to inform each customer (in accordance with current data protection law) of the manner in which you will use and store their information.
Information entered into the Software for the purposes of a TradeHelp finance quote will be processed by us in the event that the customer wishes to proceed with an application for finance and solely in order to assist such customers with any desired finance application and related installation. You must ensure that you explain to each customer (in accordance with current data protection law and your training) the manner in which we will use and store their information. It is not permissible to use this customer data for any purposes other than in connection with providing the requested quote and fulfilling any agreed related works, unless written consent to such other purpose has been obtained from the customer.
We will share with Worcester Bosch the following data in connection with your use of the Software and the services provided by us: your IAR status, your compliance with your training and the requirements of your IAR role, the number and type of quotes created by you through the Software (minus any customer data), the number of customers introduced by you to us for finance and the outcome of any credit applications (minus any customer data).
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information and any data entered into or provided by the Software. However, you acknowledge that the transmission of information over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet. You are responsible for keeping any password and other login details confidential.
In respect of any use by you of the Software or our services in connection with finance quotes and/or introductions, you must at all times act in accordance with the terms of your membership agreement, your training and any other instructions provided to you by us or by Worcester Bosch from time to time. If your status as an IAR is revoked or removed at any time you must immediately cease to use the Software for any purposes in connection with finance.
You must not use the Software in any way that causes, or may cause, damage to the Software or impairment of the availability or accessibility of the Software; or in any way which is unlawful, illegal, fraudulent or harmful, or in connection with any unlawful, illegal, fraudulent or harmful purpose or activity. You must not use the Software to copy, store, host, transmit, send, use, publish or distribute any material which consists of (or is linked to) any spyware, computer virus, Trojan horse, worm, keystroke logger, rootkit or other malicious computer software.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your log-in and password are kept confidential. You must notify us in writing immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account or password. You are responsible for any activity on the Software arising out of any failure to keep your user ID or password confidential and may be held liable for any losses arising out of such a failure. You must not use any other person’s user ID and password to access the Software, unless you have that person’s express permission to do so. We may disable your user ID and password at any time in our sole discretion with or without notice or explanation and will do so in the event that Worcester Bosch withdraw their approval of you as an IAR Member and/or Representative.
We do not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the information published on the Software; nor do we commit to ensuring that the Software remains available or that the material on the Software is kept up to date. Whilst we provide access through the Software to document pro formas and example terms and conditions, we are not qualified to provide any technical or legal advice and take no liability for the accuracy or completeness of any documents or content within or produced by the Software.
It is your responsibility to ensure that any use you make of the Software is lawful. It is also your responsibility to ensure that any data entered into the Software under your log-in is recorded, protected and used in accordance with the most recent data protection law.
You agree that in respect of any personal customer data that you process, you will:
1. not use any personal data obtained from any customer for any other purpose than that which is necessary for the purposes of the provision of products or services requested by a customer, has been notified to the customer, and for which the customer has agreed in writing;
2. take appropriate technical and organisational measures to guard against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against the accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data;
