I am wondering what happens to all the information Tesco has if we use their Club Cards? It has been bothering me for sometime and for 1p in the pound is it worth it ? I was wondering if any users of this site work for Tesco's and who has access to this information. Someone told me a selfemployed person was asked by the Inland Revenue where the cash came from they had used in Tesco's. they had found this out through their club card, which would show how the bill was paid. Is this just a rumour going around? I just feel if Tesco's don't keep this information just for their own market research then it is a bit big brother. Anyone out there know anything?

Fact: Tesco make more money from Clubcards than anything else including food, petrol, online sales, clothing etc etc.

 

Tesco sell your data and that's how they make so much money.

....which supports my decision many years ago not to have one!!!

Will I get four times the face value? Will Tesco form a partnership with HMCS, like they have with the Marriott et al?

 

Do I get the points added at the service Desk?

Can't this be resolved pretty simply by writing to them under the Data Protection Act saying that you do not give them permission to share your data with third parties?

 

Funny, I had never considered this in relation to Tesco Club Cards but I think I will now get on the case.

Glad to see I am not the only one who thinks like this, I stopped using my Tesco & Sainsbury Cards months ago, I have never been one to use my bank card to pay for anything I draw out cash, I just don't like the idea of having my life style laid out on a bank statement, only direct debits for utility bills,car & home insurance go through my bank. It always went through my mind I was selling my soul to the Devil for 1p in the pound.

:) You see what you have started Now Val..LLF :D

 

I went to Tescos this afternoon only to find it Packed out solid, so not having the patience to wander through crowds and get my hells wrecked by the woman trolley drivers..(oh Recon I'll regret that comment..lol). So for the first time ever I came home and did My tesco shopping online. When I registered my clubcard number it also produced a list of my Favourite Items ...? This is a list of all recent things I have purchased in store.. It really makes you wonder what else they have stored about customers.

Doesn't there have to be a confidentiality clause on anything you register your details to that says you will/will not allow them to be shared, I always tick the little "no" box, not sure if they take any notice but at least you told them if there's ever a legal issue.

Reidnet, I never go to Tesco on a Saturday, to many people, but I have heard if you shop online up comes all your favorites.

 

Something more I could start, when I was in America I watched a TV programme where they looked at bacteria on supermarket trolley handles, and beleive me you would not eat while pushing the trolley round if you saw this programme. Amazing what they found on these.:eek:

 

Re Tesco cards, I never did have one in my own name, I used my mother's and often laughed thinking of Tesco's wondering why an 86 year old women would buy all this food and booze. She loved it when she got the money off coupons.

In that case, Clubcard will be the least of your worries when RFID technology gets rolled out on a wider scale!

How right you are Barracad found this on Wikipedia

 

The potential for privacy violations with RFID was demonstrated by its use in a pilot program by the Gillette Company, which conducted a "smart shelf" test at a Tesco in Cambridge, England. They automatically photographed shoppers taking RFID-tagged safety razors off the shelf, to see if the technology could be used to deter shoplifting. [14] This trial resulted in consumer boycott against Gillette and Tesco.

 

It also mentioned they had been used in other countries in loyalty cards.

We are already lliving in a BB society and Tesco gets a mention.

No, the DPA does not give you control of your personal data - a common misperception.

 

As long as they process it fairly and within their registration you have no authority to prevent.

 

You are entitled to a copy and to correct any errors

Unbelievable. Who the hell do they think they are?

 

Their customer base has permanently gone down by one, and I'll be shaving my legs with shower gel from now on. :)

There was some discussion in the newspapers a while ago about the Revenue wanting to gain access to this sort of data. This would enable them to crosscheck spending patterns to declared income.

 

As far as I know this hasn't gotten anywhere but you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be a civil servant (or more likely a team of them) plotting to do this.

RFID technology is already widely used in logistics where pallets are chipped to follow their progress and to aid in stock taking, it is but a small step to chip individual items rather than pallets, the excuses used will be stock taking, theft prevention etc. but you can bet your bottom dollar the info will be used for marketing purposes, are you sure it is not already included ready to use in the chip on your cash card - i'll bet the answer to that one is no!

 

To really stamp home the big brother scenario, what about rfid chips planted under the skin? rather like tagging your dog!!!! It has been discussed!!!!!

RFID is getting more common in the food supply chain, One of the major food suppliers is already widely using these systems.. Cant say too much more really as we fitted the equipment..
