Your privacy is important to us!

The user friendly, easy to read, normal English version.

Privacy

If you email us we will reply, it would be rude not to, but we will not use your email address for anything else at all and will never pass it on to anyone else for any reason except as detailed in our full privacy policy*. The same goes for your phone number if you phone us or your address if you write to us.

We need to collect certain information in order to complete your purchase, this information includes your name and address. We use this information only for the purposes of fulfilling your order and nothing else. We will never pass any of this information to anyone else except as detailed in our full privacy policy*. We will never add you to our marketing lists unless you ask so you’ll only hear from us again if we have no choice but to contact you – for instance with the legally required GDPR updates or should we discover a problem with a product you have purchased so need to let you know.

If you complete your purchase through our 3rd party stores they will collect information that they will store. This is beyond our control so please check their individual privacy polices. We have however chosen to only use reputable 3rd party stores.

We do not collect payment information, your bank and card details are never visible to us as all payments are completed through the 3rd party stores or paypal.

If you chose to join our email list then we will use your email address only for sending our email newsletters and nothing else.  We will not ever pass your email address to anyone else except where as detailed in our full privacy policy*.

*to save you having to read that if you don’t want to such exceptions include where we are required to by law, should we need to arrange to have something directly to you from one of our suppliers and for reasons of legal process and insurance – basically only if we have to in order to comply with the law, fulfill a service to yourself or protect ourselves, our business and our customers in the case of an insurance claim or legal process (which will hopefully never happen!)

How we use Cookies

We confess we don’t really understand cookies but we do know the site uses them. The statement below is a pretty standard one and one day we may understand enough to be able to explain it ourselves but for now we can tell you we use wordpress, woocommerce, google analytics and facebook advertising which between them use cookies to do the things below.

Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites.

We use cookies to help identify your computer so we can track shopping basket contents and remember where you are in the order process. If you choose to log in we use cookies to ensure you can stay logged in.

We also use them to provide us with information about how our site is used such as which pages are visited how often and by who eg. where visitors come from. All data collected for these purposes is anonymous and none of this information allows us to identify any user.

Cookies in use also allow you to share our posts, products and pages on 3rd party sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

You can disable cookies and remove any already stored on your computer, but this may stop our website from functioning properly.

8.1 In this Section 8, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

8.2 Your principal rights under data protection law are:

(a) the right to access;
(b) the right to rectification;
(c) the right to erasure;
(d) the right to restrict processing;
(e) the right to object to processing;
(f) the right to data portability;
(g) the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and
(h) the right to withdraw consent.

8.3 You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee. You can access your personal data by visiting https://losanab.co.uk/shop/my-account/ when logged into our website.

8.4 You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

8.5 In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

8.6 In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

8.7 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

8.8 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.

8.9 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes on grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

8.10 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is:

(a) consent; or
(b) that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract,
and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

8.11 If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

8.12 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

8.13 You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to us in addition to the other methods specified in this Section 8.
