This includes exchanging information with other companies and other organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and prevention, or where we have to carry out an internal investigation.


We will usually inform you (before collecting your information if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. However, The Lunchbox understands that sharing personal data can be a bit scary at times so you have a choice about if you wish for this to happen or not.
