Privacy Policy

At Linda McCartney Foods we are committed to protecting your privacy. Any personal information we request from you will be safeguarded under the Data Protection Act 1998. This Act regulates the processing of information relating to individuals, including the holding, use or disclosure of such information.

The "personal" information we collect and how we use it

The personal information we collect consists of your name, address, phone number and email address. You are under no obligation to give us this information and your enjoyment of the site will not be affected if you decide not to give this to us. We use the information you give us to enable us to respond to any enquiry you submit to us via the 'contact us' page.

We don't require you to give us any information to simply use the website. We only collect your information in connection with your participation in any promotions or competitions offered by us and the information you provide when giving us feedback or completing profile forms. We may also monitor aggregate customer traffic patterns and site use.

Keeping your information secure

Our data is stored in a secure database protected by a number of access controls. Data collected through the registration process or market research processes on the site will be used to improve the site, helping us to tailor our services to your needs. By using this website you agree that we may collect and use data as described above. At all times, we will keep your information secure as required and manage it in accordance with our legal responsibilities under privacy and data protection laws where we operate. When we no longer need it, we will dispose of it securely.

For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 Linda McCartney Foods will be the Data Controller for all information collected. We use service providers to process this data (Data Processors) - currently Probase and Qadex. Linda McCartney Foods shall ensure that where data is processed it is done so in accordance with the Data Protection Act.

Providing information to others

We may share information with companies and organisations that process data on our behalf. We may also use and disclose information in aggregate (so that no individual customers are identified) for marketing and strategic development purposes. We will always make it clear how we do this and allow you to select whether, and to whom, your details may be disclosed.

Access rights and updating your details

You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you think any of the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, you may also request a correction. You also have a right, in certain circumstances, to require us to stop processing your personal information. In relation to all of these rights, please write to us at 2100 Century Way, Thorpe Park, Leeds, LS15 8ZB, marking all correspondence "For the attention of the Legal Team". Please note that we may charge a small administrative fee for the provision of a copy of your personal information. We may also request proof of identity. In certain circumstances (for example where required or permitted by law) we might not be able to provide you with access to some of your personal information, and we will notify you of the reason.
