Lifestyle Exquisite regularly reviews this policy to ensure it remains within current regulatory guidelines and therefore the information on this page may change over time. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Your information

Your identifiable information held by us will have been gathered as information already in the public domain and classed as ‘open source’, or provided by you as a result of an inquiry through our website, directly by email, social media message, telephone, or by you having provided your details at an event, networking event or chance meeting.

Comments

WordPress, our operating platform for this site, does require site users to leave their name and email when leaving comments on pages or posts. This data is held on our host, GoDaddy, as part of our site files. GoDaddy operates a rigorous privacy and data protection policy which you can read here.  When you leave a comment on our site, you can opt out of WordPress saving your personal data.

Contact forms

While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally, identifiable information may include but is not limited to, your name, email address, postal address, and phone number (“Personal Information”).

We may use your Personal Data to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.

Cookies

A cookie is a small file that asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes, and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

Social Website Cookies
So you can easily “Like” or share our content on social media, we have included sharing buttons on our site.

The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies
We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so-called “analytics” programs also tell us if, on an anonymous basis, how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

Turning Cookies Off

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Lifestyle Exquisite has no control over and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services and they are consequently not governed by this privacy statement.

Specific information collection tools

  • Statistical Analysis and Banner Advertising: We may perform statistical analyses of user behaviour. We may also use demographic and preference information to allow advertising banners on our website to be targeted to whom they are most pertinent.

Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.
