The purposes for processing your information

We collect information so we are able to: provide services or products you request (e.g., send you by e-mail or other electronic means our newsletters or other information about movies, television shows or other products or services in which you express an interest); allow you to participate in recreational activities on the site (e.g., participate in our message boards), to organize or carry out games, draws, or promotional events, manage our relationship with you; inform you of changes made to our sites; inform you of products, services, promotions, offers and competitions which you may find interesting; respond to any queries you may have; develop a more direct relationship with you for the purposes described in this section; develop an online customer profile of you; and understand general customer trends and patterns so we can develop and support existing and ongoing marketing strategies.

This helps us improve the design and content of our site for visitors and assists us in our marketing initiatives.

If we obtained your consent, we also may use your information for the purposes of:
(a) direct marketing of our own products and services.
(b) direct marketing products and services on behalf of selected third parties in the fields of entertainment, media and related sectors; and
(c) disclosing the data to outside organisations in the fields of entertainment, media and related sectors who want to market these types of products or services to you.

To whom your information is disclosed

We store your information on a central database located in the United Kingdom. The entities within Probiotics International Ltd that agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy have access to your data and can use it for the purposes mentioned in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose information about you to third parties to comply with applicable laws and regulations. We also reserve the right to disclose information to third parties where a complaint arises concerning your use of our site, and we verify such use being inconsistent with the Privacy Policy or our Terms of Use.
We share information about visitors to this site in an anonymous or aggregate form with third parties including advertisers, business partners, and sponsors, to understand customer trends and patterns and manage and improve our business relationships.

We provide your information to third party processors to administer and process for the purposes notified to you in this Privacy Policy, and we may also share details with third parties (such as auditors or legal advisors) to obtain professional advice. Any such processing will be governed by an agreement in the form required by law, preserving any and all of your statutory data protection rights.
It is possible that we could merge with or be acquired by another business. To the extent legally permissible and in conformity with the conditions of this Privacy Policy, we may share the information we hold that relates to you with the resulting entity.

 

Links, advertisers, third party sponsors & ad-servers

Some of our sites contain links to other sites that are not covered by this Privacy Policy and where information practices may be different from ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices as we are not responsible for and have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third-party sites.

On this site, we sometimes offer content that is sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties (e.g., competitions, sweepstakes, or promotions). These third parties can obtain personally identifiable information that you voluntarily submit to them to make use of the offer. We are not responsible for the collection and use of your personal information by these third parties. However, you will be informed, at the point of collection of such personally identifiable information, if these third parties will obtain such information.

At some of our sites, reputable third parties may present or serve advertisements under different terms regarding use of information and privacy policies. This Privacy Policy does not cover any use of information that a third-party ad server may collect from you.

 

International transfer

As Probiotics International Ltd operates globally, it is necessary to transfer your information internationally. In particular, your information will be transferred to and processed in the United Kingdom where our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of other countries, such as the U.S., may not be as comprehensive as those in the European Union. Please be assured that we take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected.

 

Security

Although absolute security cannot be guaranteed on the Internet, please be assured that we have in place reasonable technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal information against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against unauthorised disclosure or access to the information we collect online. We will continue to maintain and improve these measures over time in line with legal and technological developments.

 

Storage

Your information will not be stored for longer than is necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

 

Your rights

To see the personally identifiable information we have collected through this site that relates to you, to cancel it and/or to correct or update this information, you may email us at info@lepicol.com In addition, we will always give you the opportunity to update your preferences regarding our use of your information. To protect your privacy and security we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access.

If you have any additional questions about what personal data relating to you that is stored by us as defined by local law, please contact us at info@lepicol.com.

 

Children

It is important to us that children can enjoy our sites in a responsible fashion. We, therefore, encourage children to consult with their parents before providing personally identifiable information. We also encourage parents to supervise their children's online activities by, for example, adopting parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a child-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address, and other personally identifiable information without parental permission.

Your child's privacy is important to us. We are committed to safeguarding children's personally identifiable information collected online, and to helping parents and their children learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring the Internet. To this end, we take additional measures to protect the privacy of our younger visitors.

Visitors to this site may participate in many activities without providing any personally identifiable information. However, if a user wants to participate in certain of our interactive features, we ask the user to provide us with certain information, such as the user's email address and age. When the person who registers indicates that he or she is a child, we will take one of four steps: (1) collect no information from that individual; (2) require the child to provide a parent's verifiable consent; (3) collect only the user's email address to respond to the user's specific request; or (4) collect the e-mail address of the user's parent in addition to the user's e-mail address to seek the parent's verifiable consent or to notify them of their child's online activities. We also use the e-mail addresses of parents to enable them to unsubscribe their child from a newsletter or other similar activity. We do not share children's information with outside third parties not bound by this Privacy Policy without prior parental permission. Even with the parents' consent, if a user is a child, we will not condition his/her participation in an online activity on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.

 

Changes to our Privacy Policy

If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, the changes will be posted on this site so that you are always informed of the latest version. Please check this page and the attached list of Probiotics International Ltd entities regularly to keep up-to-date.

We will not use or disclose personally identifiable information provided to us pursuant to this Privacy Policy in ways other than the ones described herein, without informing you and providing you with the opportunity to consent to such modified conditions concerning the use and disclosure of your data.
