This page explains what types of personal information will be gathered when you visit the Kiss Me Cupcakes website and how this information will be used. Please note that although the Kiss Me Cupcakes website provides links to other web sites, this policy only applies to Kiss Me Cupcake's pages (ie. those ending in kissmecupcakes.co.uk).

1. General

Personal information is neither captured nor stored through the Kiss Me Cupcakes website without the prior consent of users. Where we ask you for some personal information (eg. if you fill in an online form, or ask us to send you some information, etc.), we will tell you what we intend to do with the information you've given us. Any personal information that you provide to us will be used only for the purpose stated at the time we request it. We will not sell, license or trade your personal information to others. We do not provide your personal information to direct marketing companies or other such organisations.

We maintain logs of our web servers' activity. These log files include the IP address of every computer used to access the Kiss Me Cupcakes website, and we use them to help us analyse usage of the Kiss Me Cupcakes website.

We also use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are small text files placed on your computer, to help us analyse how users use our site.

COOKIES

1. What are cookies 

 

Most web sites use cookies to remember information about you and your preferences, either for the duration of your visit or for repeat visits. A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a web site, and that web site can then retrieve the contents of that cookie.

If we didn't use cookies, our web site would think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site. For example, if you were to enter your login details and then move to another page, our site wouldn't be able to remember that you'd previously signed in.

Cookies may be set by the web site you are visiting ('first party cookies') or by other web sites which provide content on the page you are viewing ('third party cookies').

2. What cookies does Kiss Me Cupcakes's website use?

We also sometimes embed photos and video content from third party web sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr. As a result, when you visit one of our pages containing such content, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. We don't control the dissemination of these third party cookies and you should check the relevant third party's web site for more information.

 

We don't sell the information collected by cookies, nor do we disclose the information to third parties, except where required by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies).
