Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. By visiting www.allthingsartisan.org you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy.
If you would like to contact us for any reason, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Things Artisan collects Personal Data and Anonymous Data from you when you visit our website or when you send us information or communications. “Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone and mobile numbers, e-mail address, as well as any information about you that is associated with or linked to, or could be linked to, any of the foregoing data.
“Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data.
Anonymous Data does not permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below
1.1 How we collect Personal Data
We collect Personal Data that you provide to us voluntarily, when, for instance, you complete a contact form on our website, respond to surveys and questionnaires, or enter a competition. If you provide us with feedback regarding our site or services via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address in order to send you a reply.
We collect Personal Data if you ask us to enter your company details on the website’s producer listings.
From time-to-time, we add details of companies to our website’s producer listings without being asked to do so by the company itself. However, this will not include Personal Data and will only use publicly available data such as a website address, company name, location (county) and type of business/product/service provided.
All Things Artisan uses your Personal Data to provide you with a customised Web experience and to provide services to you. Such services include sending you marketing messages if you have given us permission to do so, processing your answers to quizzes and other competitions, and sending electronic newsletters and promotional e-mails to you if you have signed up to receive them. We also use Personal Data for customer service messages, and to notify you about updates to our services and to respond to your requests.
We may create Anonymous Data records from Personal Data by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this Anonymous Data to perform statistical analyses of users’ aggregate behaviour so that we may enhance the content of our services and improve site navigation. We reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Data to third parties at its discretion, in aggregate form.
If you elect to receive communications from us we may periodically send you free newsletters and e-mails that directly promote the use of our site or the purchase of our products or services and may contain advertisements or offers for third parties.
However, we will share your Personal Data with our third party suppliers who need to process your data in order to fulfil your request, such as to charge your credit card (if authorised by you), fulfill your order, and deliver electronic newsletters and promotional e-mails.
You expressly consent to the sharing of your Personal Data with our contractors and third party service providers for the purpose of providing services to you.
If you send a testimonial or comment to us, we may post it on our site or use it in advertising materials. We will attribute your testimonial to you by posting your first and last initial or your first name and last initial next to your testimonial on our site or advertising materials, if provided.
Regardless of any choices you make regarding your Personal Data All Things Artisan may disclose Personal Data if it believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) protect or defend the rights or property of All Things Artisan or users of our services.
If you provide All Things Artisan with your contact details and agree to receive promotional messages, we may share your details with our affiliates or third-party businesses that offer goods or services that we believe may be of interest to our customers. Many customers appreciate the offerings they receive from such third parties; however, we allow you to opt out at any time of having your Personal Data shared with affiliated or unaffiliated third parties for the purpose of sending you relevant information. You can do this by emailing email@example.com.
Should you decide to stop receiving further communications from us, you will have the opportunity to unsubscribe by following the instructions provided in the e-mail you receive.
Note that we may retain changed or deleted information in our archives, but we will not keep it longer than is necessary.
We work with trusted third parties, including social network sites like Facebook, and with application developers like WordPress who specialise in digital communication so we can connect to your social networks. Other social networks we use include Instagram, Twitter and You Tube. All of these companies operate Third Party Sites. We provide access to our Sites by third parties and business partners so we can generate interest in our products and services among members of your social networks and to allow you to share product and service interests with friends in your network.
We cannot control how your data is collected, stored, used or shared by Third Party Sites or to whom it is disclosed. Please be sure to review the privacy policies and privacy settings on your social networking sites to make sure you understand the information they are sharing. If you do not want a Third Party Site to share information about you, you must contact that site and determine whether it gives you the opportunity to opt-out of sharing such information. All Things Artisan is not responsible for how these third parties may use information collected from or about you.
Your Personal Data may be processed both in and outside of your own country. When you submit your details and in whichever country you are situated you agree to the data being transferred to the UK and processed under the terms of the UK Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 which stem from European Directives 95/46/EC and 2002/58/EC respectively. If you are not in agreement please do not give us your personal details.
We may need to transfer your data outside the UK (and possibly to places outside the European Economic Area) and by using All Things Artisan sites, or responding to our communications, you consent to us transferring any such data in this way.
All Things Artisan is committed to protecting the security of your Personal Data. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Data from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure.
Even though All Things Artisan has taken significant steps to ensure that your Personal Data is not intercepted, accessed, used, or disclosed by unauthorised persons, you should know that All Things Artisan cannot eliminate security risks associated with Personal Data.
The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you. We are also legally obliged to request you to provide us with identification so that we can be certain that you are entitled to receive the requested data.
