Here at Celtic Bakers, we take your privacy and data security very seriously.
When you use our website, a log of your activity is stored in the server log files, this includes your IP address. We need to store this data in our legitimate interest to enable core server functionality and to ensure the integrity and security of the website and the server it runs on. We will only store this data for a reasonable length of time.
Any personal details provided with an enquiry made using a contact form will be forwarded on to our Sales office team, who will re-direct the enquiry to the appropriate member of staff. We keep these details for only as long as we need to get in touch with you- though of course if in time you become a customer, then we continue to hold data as necessary in order to be able to supply your business.
We use Google Analytics to generate anonymised reports on user behaviour on our website, allowing us to monitor and review activity. This activity is in our legitimate interest.
To do this, Google provides us with an embed code, which we put on our website. This enables Google to track your activity, for example, by logging your IP address and by using Cookies (3rd party cookies). You can find details on what data Google Analytics collects and stores here. You can reject or delete these cookies, click here to find out how.
Google and Google Analytics are our data processors and are GDPR compliant.
We take data security very seriously. This website runs using HTTPS and the server is in a secure data centre. We endeavour to keep all security up to date and to follow best practice at all times.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit web pages. The owner of the cookie (who may not be directly connected to the web page that planted it – see Third Party cookies below) can access the information that is stored on that cookie when you view any web pages that include the cookie owner’s code.
Cookies are widely used, are necessary for the correct function of many websites (including most, if not all, e-commerce websites) and can create a more enjoyable website user experience. However, they are also used to track user behaviour and some visitors view this as an infringement of their privacy. This has led to the introduction of European Cookie Law.
Our website uses two cookies, both of which are allowed under European Cookie Law:
1. A single “session” cookie is used to recognise a user during the course of a visit to our website. This cookie stores a unique identifying number which we can reference to provide continuity to your visit, for example by ensuring you don’t see certain content repeatedly if it’s not necessary. This cookie is deleted automatically when you close your browser and stores no data other than the unique number. It is allowed under the Cookie Law as “strictly necessary”, in other words the site cannot do what you want it do to without this cookie.
2. A second cookie is used so that we know that you have seen our Welcome / Cookie notice, as required under by the Cookie Law. Again, this cookie stores no personal information and is “strictly necessary”.
In addition, our website uses Third Party cookies. These are cookies that are owned by external organisations, are widely used across the web and provide significant benefits. We only use one use one type of Third Party cookie:
Google Analytics cookies – these allow us to track visitors’ use of our website. This tracking is anonymous and the data allows us to understand users travel through our website and allows us to improve the experience that we offer our visitors.
Third Party cookies are set up and managed by the Third Party. We don't control the setting of these cookies, so we suggest you check the Google Analytics website for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
If you do not want our cookies or Third Party cookies to be planted on your computer, you can disable cookies in your web browser. This will prevent any cookies of the types that you specify from being placed on your computer.
However, if you choose to disable cookies, some elements of our website may not work properly.
The method you use to disable cookies depends on which web browser you use. All modern browsers allow you to change your privacy settings to prevent websites form planting cookies.
There are many different browsers. However, the privacy settings will typically be found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser. Below is a list of links for the most popular browsers to help you understand these settings further. If your browser is not included, you should use the 'Help' option in your browser for more details.
If you are mainly concerned about Third Party cookies generated by advertisers, you can find out more at Your Online Choices site.
