Loch Duart Ltd (SC 195923) has created this privacy policy to demonstrate our commitment to the privacy of the users of our websites. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy and how we treat personally identifiable information collected from our visitors and users.

What this privacy policy covers

This privacy policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information collected by us through websites owned and operated by Loch Duart Ltd. This privacy policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or of persons that we do not employ or manage, including any third-party content contributors bound by contract and any third-party websites to which our websites link.

Google Analytics

When someone visits our website we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out information such as the number of visitors to a certain page of the website. This information is processed in a way which does not identify you as a user and we do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. Cookie control can be used to prevent this (see cookie section above).

enewsletter

We hold client names and emails on our enewsletter mailing list.  Prior to 25th May 2018 we have collected email address information from existing clients and contacts who have all expressed an interest in hearing about our product and services. We have never used purchased data or passed our contacts to a third party. We have always had a visible unsubscribe button on our enewsletters and stop sending newsletters when a user unsubscribes. As we have approached the implementation of the GDPR, we have reviewed our database of mailing list contacts and have since determined that we can continue to market to the remaining contacts under the lawful basis of ‘Legitimate Interest’.

Moving ahead into the future, rest assured, you will still receive the same service and communications just as you have always done, and your data will always continue to be held securely and treated with our absolute care and respect. You will have the right to unsubscribe at any time and can request information about (or correction/deletion of) the data we hold about you.

From the 25th May 2018 any online forms will contain an enewsletter opt-in clause and only persons contacting us that give us consent to be added to our enewsletter list. In addition, anyone contacting us by any other means will be asked for consent before being added to the database.
