ALDI SHOP&GO: Our ALDI SHOP&GO service provides customers with a seamless opportunity to purchase products in one of our designated checkout free stores. The service is available by registering for the ALDI SHOP&GO App via a smartphone device, and operates using automated real-time in-store camera technology.  Our cameras track the movements and product interactions of customers in-store, so as to accurately detect and charge for items chosen by you (or any guests shopping with you as part of a ‘group’) during your checkout free store visit.

Terms and Conditions: The Terms and Conditions for the use of the ALDI SHOP&GO service can be found at: www.aldi.co.uk/shopandgo

  • your login information and mobile network information (such as your mobile phone number);
  • your physical biometrics and product selection using our in-store camera technology;

Uses of Data: 

Information which you give to us: We will use the information you provide to us in the following ways.

In respect of your ALDI SHOP&GO App registration and account use:

  • We will use your name, email address and phone number to contact you:
    • to register you for the App;
    • in relation to your account (e.g. to send you a password reset email);
    • to send you a receipt once we have taken payment from your ‘virtual’ basket;
    • to ask for your feedback regarding your purchase, so that we can continue to monitor and improve our service; and
    • if it is otherwise necessary to do so in respect of your purchase and the performance of the contract between us.
  • We will use your financial data to charge the payment card registered to your account within 24 hours of you leaving an ALDI SHOP&GO store, using our app-based payment process (PostPay). We may take a pre-authorisation payment from the card(s) registered to your account when you enter an ALDI SHOP&GO store, to prevent fraud and subsequently take payment out of that pre-authorisation charge once you have exited the store;
  • We will use your proof of age to verify that you are old enough to buy the products you have purchased.

Information we collect about you: We will use the information we collect about you in order to:

  • track your in-store movements and interaction with products in ‘real-time’, including those of any guests shopping with you, so as to accurately detect and charge you for products selected by you (or your ‘group’);
  • digitally verify your age when purchasing age-restricted products should you choose to do so using the App, by scanning your face to determine whether you meet the legal threshold (any image captured is deleted immediately following the digital check), albeit that this is optional and you can opt to have a manual check in-store if you prefer;
  • administer the ALDI SHOP&GO App for internal operations, including troubleshooting, analytics and other data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;
  • improve the ALDI SHOP&GO App to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your device; and/or
  • make suggestions and recommendations to you and other users of the ALDI SHOP&GO App about products or services that may interest you or them.

Basis for Processing: This processing is:

  • necessary for the performance of our contract with you;
  • in accordance with your consent (including, where appropriate, your explicit consent) to signing up to our ALDI SHOP&GO App; and
  • in accordance with our legitimate interests (to provide a frictionless checkout free experience, train and further develop the operation of our in-store camera technology, improve our customers experience of our ALDI SHOP&GO App and checkout free journey, satisfy purchases and to learn more about how our customers use our products/services).
