Section A – Introduction
A1. Who are we
- •Sorted is a game-changing technology company which is harnessing the power of tech to transform the world of deliveries. We aim to improve the delivery experience for everyone involved in it: the customer, the carrier, the channel partner and the retailer.

The registered office of both Sorted Holdings Limited and Sorted Group Limited is at Level Six, 111 Piccadilly, Manchester, M1 2HY .
A2. About Track
- • Track is our intelligent technology platform which enables retailers to pull all of their delivery tracking data into one place to help them manage customer expectation, resolve issues quickly and track their delivery experience performance.
- • As with most technology products, the usage and operation of Track involves the collection and handling of various forms of personal information.

- • an employee or contractor of one of our retailer customers who has been asked to use Track on behalf of your employer (please read sections A, B and D)
- • a customer of one of our retailer customers who has placed an order with that retailer which involves that retailer delivering products to you (please read sections A, C and D)
A4. Track and your personal information
- •In most cases where we are collecting and handling personal information, we do this on behalf of our retailer customer. For example:
- • we may hold personal information about a retailer’s employees so that we can enable those employees to log into the Track dashboard and use it on behalf of the retailer
- • we will collect personal information about deliveries which are being made to the retailer’s customers to enable the retailer to track deliveries being made to those customers
- •Where we are carrying out activities that involve us collecting and handling personal information on behalf of a retailer customer:
- • the retailer is legally responsible for deciding how your personal information is treated and for what purposes it is used
- • we are committed, both by data protection legislation and our agreement with that retailer, to carry out those activities in accordance with the retailer’s instructions
- • the retailer will publish a privacy notice informing you what personal information it collects about you, how it is used and what your rights are in respect of it
- • if you have any questions about how your personal information is being handled, or want to make any requests in respect of it, you should contact the retailer
- •We are constantly looking to improve Track to ensure that we can provide the best service to our retailer customers, improve the user experience for the retailers’ users and help the retailers to offer the best delivery experience to their customers. To help us to do this, we:
- • track and analyse the way in which users interact with Track
- • analyse delivery data to gain delivery insights and improve the service
- • Where we use your personal information for the purposes of improving the service in general, as opposed to on behalf of a particular retailer customer, we are responsible for ensuring that those activities are carried out in a lawful and fair way, for providing you with information about those activities and for dealing with any enquiries or requests about those activities.
A5. Our commitment to you
- • We are committed to protecting your privacy and will only use your personal information in accordance with applicable data protection legislation, including the UK General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018.
