The General Data Protection Regulation standardises data protection law across all the EU countries.
We at Wiltshire Bacon Company guarantee our commitment to respecting and protecting your online privacy.
This includes your need and your right to know what we do with the personal information you share with us. It also guides our company’s policies regarding the management of this data, including how the information is collected, processed, and for what purposes.
The Collection of Information
Every time you log on to our website your IP (Internet Protocol) address registers on our servers. Your IP address reveals no information other than the number assigned to you. We do not use this technology to get any personal data against your knowledge or free will (i.e., automatically recording e-mail addresses of visitors). Nor do we use it for any purpose other than to help us monitor traffic on our website, or (in case of criminal activity or misuse of our information) to cooperate with law enforcement.
We use a number of different cookies on our site. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit http://www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance.
Currently, we operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that we assume you are happy with this usage. If you are not happy, then you should either not use this site, or you should delete the cookies having visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “In Private” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari etc.)
Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g. service emails with invoices attached. Other emails we send we can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We do not use this information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of our emails which you can do via the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email we send.
Security of your information
Our site uses secure server software to protect your information whenever you place an order or access your account. This software encrypts any information you input before it is transferred to minimise any risk of data being intercepted before it is received by our systems.
Wiltshire Bacon Company Ltd protects your privacy:
- Customer account information is only available to those who need the information to complete their job.
- Login and passwords are required to enter all systems.
Your Rights (and your entitlement to be forgotten)
If for any reason you are unsure about the personal and account data we are holding in your name please contact us 01225 781658 or firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at Unit 27 Marsh Farm, Hilperton Marsh, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 7PJ. At any time you can request access to the data we hold about you and your orders.
Or you can review your information once you have logged into your account on our website.
Your entitlement to be forgotten or right to erasure: you can ask us to delete your personal data; however this is not an absolute right. We can refuse to erase personal data which we keep:
- to enable us to comply with HMRC for VAT reporting
- where your account has been involved in any fraudulent activity
- in relation to the defence of any legal claims.
When you request we remove your personal data from our records we assume you do not want to hear from us again.
