Privacy & Cookies Policy

UPDATED October 2016

Introduction

L’Erbolario is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and using any information you provide to us responsibly. This Policy (together with our Terms & Conditions contained on this website) sets out:
Part A - Use of your personal information
Part B - Information about Cookies

Part A - Use of your personal information

L’Erbolario SRL, L’Erbolario Franchising SRL (Franchisor) and VillaBina Limited (London Franchisee), may collect and use the following information about you:

We do not seek to collect "sensitive personal information" - that is, information relating to: race or ethnic origin; political opinion; religious or other similar beliefs; trade union membership; physical or mental health; sexual orientation; criminal records. We recommend that you do not provide such information to us. If you choose to do so for any reason, this will mean that you have given (and we accept) your explicit consent for us to use that information for the reasons described in this policy, or as explained at the time you provide the information.

Where/how we store your information

We will take all reasonable steps necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. All information you provide to us is stored on our servers, with payment transactions encrypted using SSL technology. Where a password is chosen to access certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Security of shared information

As the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, and although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our Website, so any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use robust procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access and require our suppliers to do the same.

Use of your information

We will not transfer any of your information to any third parties, expect between VillaBina Limited (London Franchisee), L’Erbolario Franchising SRL (Franchisor) and L’Erbolario SRL and our outsourced website designer (Bluelab). Except for the mailing list activities related to our in-store events, which we run on a regular basis, we will not use your personal information collected from our Website to carry out unsolicited unrelated marketing activities. You may change your choice at any time by or by phoning us at our London store.
