This Privacy Policy (at times, this “Policy”) discloses the privacy practices for yorkshireshiddengems.com (the “Website”) and all services offered by us through the Website or otherwise, including without limitation, all mobile, tablet, and other smart devices applications and application program interfaces and associated services (collectively, the “Service” or our “Service”). Locial Limited (“YORKSHIRE’S HIDDEN GEMS,” “us,” or “we”) is committed to protecting your privacy online. Please read the information below to learn the following regarding your use of the Service. You acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is part of our Terms and Conditions of Use, and by accessing or using our Service, you agree to be bound by all of its terms and conditions. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access or use the Service. For clarity, this Policy also hereby specifically incorporates YORKSHIRE’S HIDDEN GEMS’ Terms and Conditions of Use by reference into this Policy in its entirety.

YORKSHIRE’S HIDDEN GEMS processes data on and through the Service as both a data processor and as a data controller. This Privacy Policy is intended to help you understand:

  • What personal information and data we collect and why we collect it;
  • What we do with your personal information and data; and
  • Your rights to access, update, and delete your personal information and data.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Such changes, modifications, additions, or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including, but not limited to issuing an email to the email address listed by registered users and posting the revised Policy on this page. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy on the Service and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. We also may choose to provide you with notice of the modification by email before the date when such revised Privacy Policy becomes effective.

If you disagree with any revised version of this Privacy Policy, you may cease your use of the Service, or exercise any of your rights set forth herein with respect to your personal information. Otherwise, your continued access to or use of the Service will constitute your: (a) acknowledgment of the modified Policy; and (b) agreement to abide and be bound by the modified Policy. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to maintain a valid email address as a registered user, to review the Website and the Service and this Policy periodically, and to be aware of any modifications.

1. Types of Information Collected

To better provide you with our numerous services, we collect two types of information about our users: (i) “Personally Identifiable Information;” and (ii) “Nonpersonally Identifiable Information” (at times collectively with the Personally Identifiable Information, your “Information”). Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our Service.

Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities through the Service, which includes purchasing a membership subscription, providing content, joining our email list, or sending us feedback, we ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form(s). It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. However, if you elect to engage in these activities, we ask that you provide us with Personally Identifiable Information, including your first and last name and email address. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide may be identified as mandatory while other information may be identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.

Non-personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on or throughout our Service in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis, including through the use of Google Analytics. This information may include the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) from which your visit originated, which URL you access next, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.

2. Collection Methods and Use of Information

We do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us when you: (a) send email messages; (b) submit forms; or (c) transmit other information by telephone or letter. We also may collect information from you at other points on or through our Service that state that such information is being collected, such as a survey.

We primarily will use your Personally Identifiable Information to respond to your correspondence and provide access to restricted parts of our yorkshireshiddengems.com. We also will use Personally Identifiable Information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts. We may use Personally Identifiable Information to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices. You acknowledge that all such documents and agreements are incorporated herein by this reference in their entirety and apply to this Privacy Policy, further including without limitation, all rules of conduct, disclaimers of warranty, limitations of liability, indemnification, and dispute resolution provisions.

For clarity, we use, store, and process information and data, including Personally Identifiable Information, about you to provide, understand, improve, and develop the Service. We use, store, and process information collected for the following purposes:

  • To provide information or services you have requested.
  • To provide customer service and/or respond to inquiries from you.
  • To send you service or support messages.
  • To fulfil any other purpose that you might request upon you consenting to our use of your personal information or data for such purpose if possible.
  • To notify you about any changes to our Service or any products or services we offer or provide.

We process this personal information and data with your voluntary consent in disclosing it to us.

3. Release of Information

We do not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to any third parties.

Occasionally, we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order or subpoena or in pursuance of cooperating and complying with any law enforcement action or investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we have any information or reason to believe might possibly be unlawful and/or might possibly lead to unlawful activity of any kind.

In the event that our assets are sold or transferred to another party or that another transaction occurs in which your Personally Identifiable Information is one of the assets transferred, all information and data that has been collected and saved likely will be included in that transfer. We will post a notice on or through the Service in the event of such a transfer and all your rights with regard to your Personally Identifiable Information will remain for you to exercise at all times as outlined in this Privacy Policy or otherwise through the Service.

We also may provide Non-personally Identifiable Information about customer and user sales, transactions, traffic patterns, and related service information to third party advertisers, but this will not include any Personally Identifiable Information.

5. User Choices on Collection and Use of Information

From time to time, we may send you an email(s) regarding our products and services. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us at info@yorkshireshiddengems.com. As more fully outlined and explained below in Section 7 entitled “Cookies,” we do use cookies to track your computer’s browser while on our Website.

6. Security of Information

With our Service, you can be assured that your Personally Identifiable Information is secure, consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all Personally Identifiable Information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. Your Personally Identifiable Information is protected in several ways. Your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a secure server that only selected YORKSHIRES HIDDEN GEM’S personnel and contractors will be able to access via a separate password(s). We encrypt your Personally Identifiable Information and thereby prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet that are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Service cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.

We are continuously implementing and updating our administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized access, loss, destruction, or alteration. We incorporate reasonable safeguards to protect the security, integrity, completeness, accuracy, and privacy of the personal information that we may collect, including firewalls, data encryption, and information access controls.

7. Cookies

A “cookie” is a small data text file, which a Web site stores on your computer’s hard drive (if your Web browser permits it) that can later be retrieved to identify you to us. YORKSHIRE’S HIDDEN GEMS does use “cookies” with your consent. We do not utilise “cookies” without your consent. Not consenting to the use of cookies will not stop you from having access to the Website or the Service.

8. Privacy Policies of Third-Party Sites

Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information that we collect from you. Other sites accessible through our Service have their own privacy policies and related documentation and materials and control and handle their own data collection, data use, and data disclosure practices. Please consult each site’s separate privacy policy and related documentation and materials in those regards. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties.
