I will always ensure that my practice is as transparent as possible. This document should help to clarify the following types of information that may be collected about you when you engage through this website:
Information you provide us directly:
You may be asked for certain information such as your real name, and e-mail address if you correspond with us. We may also retain any messages you send through the website. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service.
If you wish to make an automated payment in order to purchase any goods or services we will require your credit card number and expiry date. Your financial information is used solely for this purpose. Your financial information will be passed directly to a credit card processing company (Stripe or PayPal). No record of your financial information will be held on this site or otherwise by us following the processing of your payment. The credit card processing company does not use, share, retain or store this information for any purpose, other than to process your payment for the above purpose. PayPal’s terms can be found here: https://www.paypal.com/ie/webapps/mpp/ua/legalhub-full
We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the website. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.
Log file information:
Log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile device each time you access our website. When you use our website, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the website, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
We comply with the requirements of the Irish Data Protection (amended) Act 2003 governing the obtaining, use, retention, security and transfer of personal information. However, we cannot accept responsibility for the use of personal information once transferred to a third party website.
Personal information collected during registration and ordering from the online shop will only be held for the purposes of fulfilling orders, and we will only contact you if there is a problem with your order or if you have specified you would like to receive information from us.
Links to Other Websites and Services
We use a third party provider, ActiveCampaign, to deliver an occasional e-newsletter. We may gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter.
What are cookies
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
Cookies are simple text files. They are needed to help navigate automatic logins, password authentication, shopping cart functions, personal preference settings and a variety of other functions. Cookies make these functions smooth and hassle-free to the user.
Cookies don’t search your computer for information. Cookies register the information you provide through your browser. When you enter personal and/or financial information on a website, the cookies store your information, both for ease of use on your next visit and for ad tracking.
Information stored by cookies is usually encoded; it is protected from potential computer hackers by security features (which you, the website owner, have put into place.)
Cookies are necessary and enhance your browsing experience. Without cookies, you would have to re-enter all of your information every time you revisited a site. A cookie will simply remember your information on the website to save you time.
Cookies only store the information you provide. A cookie cannot “grab” your email address. A cookie can store your email address on the website—if you have typed in your email address; a cookie stores all information you voluntarily give when you visit a website.
Cookies themselves contain very little information other than the URL of the website that created the cookie. Because there is so little information, a cookie can’t be used to identify you by name or other personal information. However, advances in technology have seen an increase in how companies can manipulate cookie information to create a profile of your web surfing habits. Again, this is a profile of a particular consumer’s surfing habits and product preferences, there is no name (your name) attached to the profile.
Cookies are harmless. They cannot introduce viruses on your computer.
Cookies are not the same thing as Spyware. A cookie stores your website surfing information; Spyware stores your Internet surfing information (every site you visit).
