They include, for example, cookies that help ensure that the content of a page loads quickly and effectively.

We use them to collect information about how visitors access our services, such as the number of users on our website, how long they stay on the site for, and what parts of the site they visit. This helps us to improve the way our websites work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

Marketing

You may receive marketing communications from us via email, WhatsApp, text or telephone if you have requested information from us or requested our services if, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing communications, we may still process your personal data for other required purposes.

We do not sell, rent, lease or provide in any other way our customer lists to third parties.

You may always object / opt-out by following the link in our email message or by sending us an email to hello@loumafarmandretreat.co.uk

Disclosure of your Information

We do not rent or sell your personal information to anyone without your explicit consent, but, subject to the need to perform the contract with you based on the contract you enter with us and our legitimate interests, we may share your personal information in the ways described below:

  • Other companies within the group for administrative and organisational purposes.
  • Our third-party service providers who perform functions on our behalf in connection with the operation of our business such as IT service providers, including cloud storage, analytics and communications providers, and system administrators or third parties who host and manage data.
  • Analytics, CRM and other software that assist us in the communication with you and the improvement and optimisation of our website.
  • Any other third parties for the purpose of enabling the services you book to be carried out, as our payment provider Stripe. Please note that Stripe is a controller of your personal data and their own Privacy Policy will apply when you make a payment.
  • Third parties if we are required to do so by law, or if we believe that such action is necessary to: (a) fulfil a government or regulatory authority request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our websites or customers.
  • Other reasons: We may also share your personal information with a purchaser or potential purchaser of our business.
  • Any other third parties with your express consent.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

International Data Transfers 

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and the UK, where the laws on processing personal data may be less stringent than in your country. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA and the UK who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy, by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • Transferring your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission or the UK;
  • Entering into specific contractual terms which have been approved by the European Commission or the UK and which give personal data the same protection as within the EEA and the UK;
  • Where your data will be transferred to the US, ensuring that the third party to which we are transferring your data is part of the Data Privacy Framework, which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe or the UK and the US.

For further information on the safeguards used, please contact us at hello@loumafarmandretreat.co.uk

Data Retention 

We retain personal information for as long as we require for the purposes for which it is processed or as is otherwise required by applicable law. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we will refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:

  • Whether we have a legal or contractual need to retain the data.
  • Whether the data is necessary to provide our services.

When calculating the appropriate retention period for your data, we consider the nature and sensitivity of the data, the purposes for which we are processing the data, and any applicable statutory retention periods.

Your Rights

Under the GDPR and UK GDPR, you are entitled to certain rights in relation to our handling of your personal data, as described below.

  • Request access to your personal data that we hold about you (commonly known as a “data subject access request” or DSAR). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you or are otherwise processing;
  • The right to obtain without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you, including the right to have incomplete personal data completed e.g. by means of providing a supplementary statement. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected. We will need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us;
  • Restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data where the data is wrongfully processed but should not be erased for a reason listed in Article 18 (1) (UK) GDPR;
  • Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’). This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it, except for information where a contract or legitimate interest continues to exist (e.g. to pursue claims);
  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third-party) and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms;
  • You may exercise your right of data portability in a common, machine readable form by obtaining your data by sending us an email request.

Where another mechanism is not provided, you can exercise the rights at any time by contacting us at hello@loumafarmandretreat.co.uk
