Its time for an upgrade!

Community Manager

Hi Lidlers,

Its time for an upgrade! 


We wanted to let you know that we will be moving to a new host platform that will be the new home for our Lidl Community site. Your brand new Community will be with you to use mid-September. Your personal data will continue to be processed as before with the same level of care, and transferred to our new providers to allow you to enjoy a seamless experience with the Community. To make things more transparent, you will be directed to an updated privacy notice upon signing in for the first time to the new site. We will also inform you of any future changes to our Ts&Cs. Your rankings and experience will be as good as before, with some changes to badges and new features which we can’t wait for you to try out!


If you are busy and don't manage to sign in and view the new Privacy Notice straight away, don't worry as you'll have 3 months from the move date before your account is deactivated. Remember that you can always amend your account settings when logging into your profile if you change your mind. 


If you would not like us to move your profile and data from the old website to the new then you are able to remove your user data in the link at the footer of every page on this site. Once you click the link you will be directed to 'My Settings,' where you will be given the option to remove your data by closing your account. If you choose to remove your data this will unfortunately mean you will no longer remain a member of the community. 


We look forward to sharing the new site with you soon! Should you have any queries relating to the move please message the Lidl team.


Best,
My Lidl Team

You say you are moving all data to a new platform which I assume means external host.

 

What happens to the data currently held by the current  platform? Are they able to retain it?

Esteemed Contributor

I am really looking forward to the new site, with more members it makes sense to have an upgrade. 

 

I know there are bound to be teething problems, but as I will be on our cruise when the new site goes live I just wanted to wish you Good luck @Lidl and thank you for keeping us in 'the loop' 😊

 

Happy posting Lidlers, I look forward to more chats on the new site so PLEEEZE stay  😘

Sounds interesting. Same query as Al's , what happens to data held by current platform. 

Regular Contributor

All good wishes for the new platform.  Hope it does everything you expect of it and as previously mentioned with the member numbers increasing all the time an upgrade can only be a good thing.  Looking forward to using it.

Looking forward to it as well. Know what you mean tommiesgirl, as I am a volunteer in my local library, and we had teething troubles with our new computer system, (brought in because of the new data protection laws). Any problems will hopefully be sorted quickly.

Hi all, 

A few of you have been asking about how your data will be stored. You will be able to find all the information about how this will be stored in the private policy found here. We want to highlight that all data will be deleted from the current platform 30 days from the date of move. 

Hope this helps! 

Best, 
Sophie
