The following Privacy Policy governs the online information and data collection practices of lukeosaurusandme.co.uk (“me” or “I”). Specifically, it outlines the types of information that I gather about you while you are using the lukeosaurusandme.co.uk website (the “Site”), and the ways in which I use this data.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By visiting and using this Site, you are agreeing to the terms set out by this privacy policy in regards to the Site usage and privacy. Due to the internet being an ever expanding space, it is possible that I may need to make changes to my Privacy Policy in the future – if this is the case, I will post the changes to my Privacy Policy on the Site and update the date of the policy, to reflect the changes of the Privacy Policy. By continuing to use the site after any changes, you are accepting the modified Privacy Policy.

I will never sell, swap or loan out your email addresses to any unauthorised third party.

How I Collect and Use Information

This site will only contact individuals who have specifically requested communication, or in the event that they have signed up to my free email list. In the event that an individual purchases something from the Site, identifying data will be collected from the user at time of purchase. This information generally includes the user’s email address and name (also information that is collected when registering to my free emailing list), postal address and credit/debit card information. All of this information is provided to me by you.

I also collect and store information that is automatically generated as you navigate your way through the Site. For example, I may collect information about your computer/smart phone’s connection to the Internet, which in turn allows me to, among other things, improve and deliver web pages to you and help measure the traffic the Site receives. The Site also uses a standard feature on browsers called a ‘cookie’ – this helps to enhance your online experience of the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser uses to help keep record. Cookies help me to deliver relevant advertisements and track traffic and demographics for the Site. The also save information, such as names and emails on comment forms, if you have commented on the Site before and wish to continue commenting – thus saving you having to write the details out again. You can find and read my full cookie policy for more information. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages.

The information that you give to me directly on the site (e.g. within comments on blog posts such as your name and email address) is never shared or added to any mailing lists. Information relating to purchases made through this website is stored on my website only. This is to enable me to complete your order, and also prevents you from having to re-enter your details during your next purchase. You may request to have your details removed from my website storage once your purchase is complete by emailing me at lukeosaurusandme@gmail.com

To ensure the security and safety of this Site, I create daily backups of all information on this Site, which are held in a zip file within a secure third party server. Each backup is deleted when a new one is created.

This Site also includes links to websites that I personally recommend or work with on a collaborative basis. These links provide access to products and services that are offered by third-parties, who’s privacy policies I do not control. Some links featured in my posts are ‘affiliate links’. This means that if you click on the link and purchase the item, I receive a small commission (pennies), at no additional cost to you.

When you access another website or purchase third-party products or services through the Site, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of that site , not lukeosaurusandme.co.uk. Be aware that I may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the site or the public.

Please also note that as my business grows, I may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that I sell some or all of my assets, or my website is acquired by another company, information about my users may be among the transferred assets.

Affiliate links and non-disclosure

Some links on this site may be affiliate links. These are links to products or services that I highly recommend and am an affiliate for. Should you click on one of these links and decide to purchase the service(s) or product(s), I will receive a small commission of the sale at no extra cost to you. Affiliate links are always clearly marked for full disclosure purposes.

Links to third-party web sites or services are not owned or controlled by myself. I have no control over, and take no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services.

You further acknowledge and agree that this Site and its owner shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.

Content

All information and content on this site is exclusively owned by me and may not be copied, reproduced, distributed or shared in any way that suggests it belongs to anyone other than myself. Quotes may be extracted from content only if permission is sought first and adequate credit is displayed.

Competitions And Giveaways

This Site may run regular competitions and giveaways for the reader’s benefit. In order to run these and ensure they run smoothly, competition and giveaway entrants are required to supply certain information. This includes data such as your name, postal address and email. Additional information may also be required.

The winner’s full name and postal addresses will be shared with the brand’s supplying and posting the prize when necessary. As such, your full, valid postal address is required to enter any competition or giveaway on the Site.Your details will never be shared, sold or loaned to any other brands – only the brand’s responsible for supplying the prize which you entered. I take steps to ensure that the information I pass onto the brands is GDPR compliant and the details do not go any further than ensuring delivery of your prize is possible. However, I cannot be held responsible for any data misuse by any third parties.

Email addresses supplied during the entering of competitions and giveaways are used solely for the purposes of contacting winners. Your details are never added to mailing lists or shared with any third parties unless necessary.

The sharing of the winner’s full name, email address, and full postal address is required in order to facilitate competitions and giveaways, and therefore the collection of this information is granted legally under the GDPR base of ‘contract’. As such, if you are not happy to share your full name, email address, and full postal address, you will be unable to continue entering the giveaway or competition.

In the event that the third party online software I use to facilitate competitions and giveaways (https://www.Rafflecopter.com) incurs a security breach, I will notify the ICO within 72 hours of being aware of the breach. I will then ensure I notify all competition/giveaway entrants for whom I have details as soon as is reasonably and safely practicable.

You may request to have your details removed from my database and competition software any time after the competition or giveaway has ended by contacting me at lukeosaurusandme@gmail.com

Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage those lists in order to deliver e-mail ie. Me, and delivered to those who would like to receive this Site’s newsletters. I take steps to ensure that any/all Virtual Assistants I may use to help me complete tasks are GDPR knowledgeable and compliant in their practices.

All of the newsletters or emails that are sent to you by this Site include an unsubscribe link at the end of them. You can remove yourself from the Site’s free emailing service at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that I send you.

Disclaimer

Although it is highly unlikely, this policy may be changed at any time at my discretion. If I should update this policy, we will post the updates to this page on the Website.

In the event of a security breach on this website, I will notify you within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.

In the event of a security breach on any third party server which I use to store your information (such as https://mailchimp.com) I will notify you as soon as I can reasonably do so and I have been notified by the third party.
