The terms of this Policy are without prejudice to any contractual terms you may enter into with us, which shall prevail over the terms of this Policy.
- Pledge on Privacy
Emelia’s Apothecary does not collect and process Data except when voluntarily provided by you. We ensure compliance by our staff with strict standards of security and confidentiality and in processing your Data we pledge to fully comply with internationally recognized standards of privacy protection.
- Intended Use of Data
Emelia’s Apothecary collects and processes Data only for specific and limited purposes which we inform you about when you wish to use certain services. [For example, we may collect and use Data to provide you with our products or services, to bill you for products or services you request, to verify your credit, to market products and services we believe might be of interest to you, to process your job application, to receive news releases, or to communicate with you.] In addition, we may use your Data to evaluate the effectiveness of and improve our services to our visitors and customers, for our own internal statistics to evaluate customer interests as well as purchasing and other trends among customers and to better determine product development and marketing strategies. By submitting your Data, you expressly consent to such use. Emelia’s Apothecary keeps your Data only for as long as is reasonably needed for such purposes and in accordance with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements.
- Non-Disclosure of Information
Emelia’s Apothecary shall never sell, rent, share or otherwise distribute or make available your Data to third parties outside of the Emelia’s Apothecary group of companies, except when required to do so for legal or regulatory purposes or when Data may occasionally be transferred to third parties who act for or on behalf of Emelia’s Apothecary for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which your Data were originally collected. When disclosure of Data to third parties is likely or necessary for whatever reason, Emelia’s Apothecary shall ensure that such third parties provide the same level of protection as Emelia’s Apothecary, and shall contractually require them to process Data transferred only for the purposes authorized by you and on a confidential and secure basis.
- Security / Confidentiality
We undertake to take reasonable steps in order not to allow your Data to be seen by third parties other than those who act for or on behalf of Emelia’s Apothecary and have agreed to treat your Data confidential and secure. Access to Data is restricted to those of our employees on a need to know basis. To ensure the security and confidentiality of Data that Emelia’s Apothecary collects online, we use data networks protected, inter alia, by industry standard firewalls and password protection. Although we have tried to create secure, reliable and trustworthy websites for our visitors, please be aware that the Internet is generally not regarded as a complete secure environment, and that therefore the confidentiality of the Data provided by you or material transmitted via our websites or by e-mail cannot be guaranteed by Emelia’s Apothecary. Thus, we cannot be responsible or liable for the security of your Data whilst in transit via the Internet to us.
- Anonymous Data
Most of the information we collect from our websites is anonymous information. When you visit our websites, we do not collect any personal Data from you unless specifically, voluntarily and knowingly provided by you.
Emelia’s Apothecary does not conduct “spamming”. Spamming is defined as sending unsolicited e-mails, usually of commercial nature, in large numbers and repeatedly to individuals with whom the sender has had no previous contact or who have declined to receive such communications.
- Data and Children
To respect the privacy of children and to comply with the laws designed to protect children, children under the age of 18 should not provide any Data. Emelia’s Apothecary will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose Data from a minor under the age of 18, without obtaining prior consent from a person with parental responsibility (parent, guardian).
Our websites are general audience sites that are not designed nor intended to collect Data from children under the age of 18. We ask that parents supervise their children while online.
- Links to Other Websites
Our websites may contain links to third party web sites. These linked sites are not under Emelia’s Apothecary control and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the contents of any such linked site, or any link contained in any linked site. We provide such links only as a convenience, and the inclusion of a link on our websites does not imply endorsement of the linked site by Emelia’s Apothecary. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies and practices of any such third parties. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTIES.
