2. Who We Are

Here are the details that the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regards to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, known as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) says we have to give you as a 'data controller':

  • Our site address is www.skunksifters.com

  • The business of Skunk Sifters is carried on by Aidan Smith as a sole trader.

  • Our place of business is 45 Sibson Road, Birstall, Leicester LE4 4DX.

3. What we may collect

We may collect and process the following data about you:

 

  • Information you put into forms or surveys on our site at any time

  • A record of any correspondence and phone calls between us

  • Details of transactions you carry out with us

  • Details of your visits to our site and the resources you use

  • Information about your computer (e.g. your IP address, browser, operating system, etc.) for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers

 

Under GDPR we will ensure that your personal data is processed lawfully, fairly, and transparently, without adversely affecting your rights. We will only process your personal data if at least one of the following basis applies:

 

a)    you have given consent to the processing of your personal data for one or more specific purposes;

b)    processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps at the request of you prior to entering into a contract;

c)    processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;

d)    processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller; and/or

e)    processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party such as our credit card payment processing, except where such interests are overridden by the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.

For example, we use data we collect from you to deliver relevant website content and advertisements to you (including Instagram and Facebook adverts or other display advertisements) and to measure the effectiveness of the advertising we serve you.  Our lawful ground for this processing is that it is in the legitimate interest of growing our business.

11.5 All negotiations connected with the relevant dispute(s) will be conducted in confidence and without prejudice to the rights of the parties in any further proceedings.

11.7 If the parties fail to resolve the dispute(s) within 60 days (or such longer term as may be agreed between the parties) of the mediator being appointed, or if either party withdraws from the mediation procedure, then either party may exercise any right to seek a remedy through arbitration by an arbitrator to be appointed by LawBite under the Rules of the LawBite Arbitration Scheme.
