Our terms and conditions

Here at Quiz Britain, your trust is important to us and we are committed to safeguarding your personal data. There are some changes in data protection law that came into play on 25th May 2018…

It’s a positive step forward that increases your existing rights to data privacy and security, as well as improving the protection of your personal information, which we take seriously. We have updated our privacy policy to reflect these positive changes, including how we collect, store and handle your personal data. We also outline how you can contact us to exercise your rights. There’s nothing you need to do right now, but if you’d like to find out more, do take a look at our Privacy Policy at any time.
Quiz Britain aims to provide a professional service. Our Terms & Conditions which include our Privacy Policy make them easy to follow. Users of our service should be aware that errors can be made, and with moving goal posts we can offer guarantees, but no absolute promises of success. We also draw clients attention to clause 2.8 which explains under what circumstances our fees become automatically payable and when an order can be abandoned with nothing to pay.
