Third Parties

For the avoidance of doubt, we do not and never shall sell your personal data to third parties for marketing or advertising purposes.

We work with a number of third parties (including business parties, service providers and fraud protection services) and we may receive information from them about you. These third parties may collect information about you including, but not limited to, your IP address, device-specific information, server logs, device event information, location information, and unique application numbers. We use their features within our website, however, in some instances, they may be acting as data controller and they will have their own privacy policies.

We may share your information if we are under a duty to disclose data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to protect the rights, property, or safety of The Little Sugar Rose, our customers, or others. This includes but is not limited to exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection, credit risk reduction and dispute policies. However, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

Links to other websites

Our website contains links to other websites of interest which are outside of our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. If you access other websites using the links provided, the operators of those sites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their own privacy policies which may differ from ours.

 

Use of ‘cookies’

Our website, like many other websites, uses cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling our website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

 

Cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if preferred.

 

Site visits tracking

Like most websites, our website uses Google Analytics to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through our website.

 

Although Google Analytics records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. Google Analytics also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. 

 

Your rights

Under data protection law you have the right to request details of any personal data that we hold about you. Where we have no legitimate reason to continue to hold your information, you have the right to be forgotten. There are legal and accountancy reasons why we will need to keep your data but please do inform us if you think we are retaining or using your personal data incorrectly.

 

You also have the right to change the permissions that you have given us in relation to how we may use your data and you have the right to request that we cease using your data or that we delete all personal data records that we hold relating to you. You can exercise these rights at any time by emailing us at: info@thelittlesugarrose.com

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. If you choose not to receive marketing communications from us about our products and services, you will have the choice to opt-in at a later date via links in our website or emails.
