Who We Are
Our Website address is https://aesthetics.today. Privacy information is controlled by Timeea Toth, who can be reached at [email protected]
We want our websites to be safe and enjoyable for everyone. Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation 2021 (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 and related laws, we have a legal duty to protect the personal information we collect from you.
We have appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) and Privacy Officer to oversee our data protection and privacy practices. If you have any comments, concerns or questions, including any requests to exercise your legal rights, our DPO and Privacy Officer can be reached as follows:
Information We Collect It
We may collect personal information, such as your name, email address, and other contact details, when you voluntarily provide them, for example, when you subscribe to our newsletter, comment on articles, or submit content.
Like many websites, we collect information sent by your browser whenever you visit our Website. This may include your computer’s IP address, browser type, browser version, the pages you visit, the time and date of your visit, and other statistics.
Use Of Information
We may use your personal information for various purposes, including but not limited to:
- Sending you newsletters and updates.
- Responding to your comments or inquiries.
- Providing you with content tailored to your interests.
- Administering contests, surveys, or other site features.
- Enhancing our Website and its functionality.
Ordering A Service From Us
If you order a service from us, you must provide certain personal details, including payment information, to fulfil the order. Sometimes, we will use or direct you to a third party who will collect this information from you and fulfil your order.
Content You Share With Us (Comments, Articles, etc.)
When you share comments, photos, videos, articles and other content with us, we may receive personal information about you, for example, when you interact with us on social media.
If you write for us or provide us with content in return for payment, we may collect your social media profiles, such as Facebook and Twitter, on registration. This allows us to show links to your social media profiles within the content you write, enabling other site users and yourself to share your content with others. We will also use the information you provide us with, such as bank details, to ensure we pay you the correct fees for the content you provide for us.
Embedded Content From Other Websites
Who Do We Share Your Data With
Without your consent, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties. However, we may share your information with trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Website, conducting our business, or servicing you, provided they agree to keep this information confidential.
We may also disclose your personal information when required by law to protect our rights, privacy, safety, or property and to respond to lawful requests or legal processes.
Our Website may contain links to third-party websites or services. These third-party websites have separate and independent privacy policies. We are not responsible for the content and activities of these linked websites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of such third-party sites.
How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can automatically recognise and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
We utilise email marketing platforms to send newsletters and updates to subscribers who have opted in.
To assist with sending you requested information, we use Mailchimp to collect and store your email address. Mailchimp outlines their use of your personal data and anonymised data here. You may opt out of collecting your data by unsubscribing (we will remove your data) and contacting them using the instructions on their privacy page: https://mailchimp.com/legal.
If you have provided optional information, we may use it to personalise the content of our emails.
We may analyse email engagement metrics to enhance our newsletter’s quality and relevance.
By subscribing to our newsletter, you give your explicit consent to receive email communications from us. You can unsubscribe anytime by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in every email.
Analytics – Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to record information about the pages a user has seen, for example, the URL of the page, time of day, device used, etc. The information we collect is anonymised and sent to Google Analytics for analysis. Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on visitor interactions on this Website.
Users may disable cookies or delete any individual cookie.
In addition, Google Analytics supports an optional browser add-on that – once installed and enabled – disables measurement by Google Analytics for any site a user visits. Note that this add-on only disables Google Analytics measurement.
Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to provide and protect the security of the service and to give website owners a sense of which country, state, or city in the world their users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”). See this page for Google Analytics security and usage of data: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245
What Rights Do You Have Over Your Data
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we must keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
