Privacy Policy

 

The following statement explains our policy regarding the personal information we collect about you.

Introduction

This policy covers Angus Soft Fruits use of personal information that is collected when you both use and become a customer of angussoftfruits.co.uk.

Occasionally you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (for example your name and email address) in order to receive or use services on our website. Such services may include enquiry forms, message boards, newsletters, and angussoftfruits.co.uk membership.

By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Angus Soft Fruits and its service providers to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information Angus Soft Fruits will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.

Visitor Information

During the course of any visit to angussoftfruits.co.uk, the pages you see, along with a short text file called a ‘cookie’, are downloaded to your computer. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our farmers  pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight additional service information on your second and subsequent visits.

Use and storage of your personal information

When you supply any personal information to angussoftfruits.co.uk (e.g. for enquiries, or Angus Soft Fruits membership) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use the data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular webpages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.

In general, any information you provide to Angus Soft Fruits will only be used within the Angus Soft Fruits organisation and by its service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. However, if offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content is posted or sent anywhere on or to angussoftfruits.co.uk, Angus Soft Fruits can use whatever information that is available about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school, e-mail / Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of angussoftfruits.co.uk membership you no longer wish to continue your registration as a angussoftfruits.co.uk member. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other angussoftfruits.co.uk services (e.g. enquiry forms), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly and enquiry responded. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Access to your personal information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information Angus Soft Fruits holds about you and to have any inaccuracies fully corrected. (We currently charge an administration fee of £20 for information requests.)
