WHO SEES YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

The personal information we collect about you will be used by our employees at AB Living so that they can provide the information and services you request.

AB Living will not sell or rent your information to third parties.

We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

We may pass your information to our third party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example, to send you mailings). When we work with a third party we only disclose information necessary to deliver the service and we have a signed contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own marketing purposes.

From time to time we may show you offers from trusted third parties. We would never supply them with your information, however, we may show you exclusive offers from these trusted third parties in email communications.

We will only show you offers on the basis you have provided us with consent to do so. Consent is typically provided via checking an opt in box presented to you on The Spa by AB Living website form or in some cases, it may be provided by you to us either verbally over the telephone or in person. Where your consent has been obtained verbally, we will always provide confirmation to you of the consent you have provided to us in the form on an email for your records.

WHO SEES YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We take the security of your personal information very seriously. We have implemented appropriate physical, technical and organisational measures to protect the personal information we have under our control, both on and off-line, from improper access, use, alteration, destruction and loss.

Here are some of the ways we protect your personal information:

  • If you provide personal information to us online that information is encrypted for protection on transmission to us. Encryption is the process through which sensitive information is scrambled before it is transmitted so that it remains private even if it is intercepted. However, unless your internet browser supports this you will not be able to take advantage of this level of security.

  • Offline, your personal information is kept securely on our database and in our office, or, where relevant, by our partner companies as described above.

  • Our website may contain links to other sites. While we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites.

We only keep your data for as long as is reasonable and necessary, which may be to fulfil statutory obligations. We ensure that any third parties that process information on our behalf adhere to these standards.

WEB BROWSER COOKIES

We use basic cookies to collect information, which you can opt out of via browser extensions. When you browse our website, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

What is a cookie?

A cookie contains a small amount of data and (typically) a unique identifier. When you access any of our websites or platforms (or those of third-party providers) a cookie will be sent to your device. The cookie records information about your online preferences and therefore allows us to tailor our websites and any contact with you to your specific interests.

Why do we use cookies?

The information we obtain by monitoring all visits to our website enables us to improve, through anonymous analysis, our services to our customers and visitors.

Many websites use cookies in order to see whether a device has visited the website before. Any repeat visit is verified by finding the cookie left previously. By using cookies in this way, we can provide a better and more personal user experience. It also enables us to recognise whether you have already signed up to receive information from us – thus avoiding duplication.

Your web browser may also provide us with information concerning your device, such as an IP address or details about the browser you are using. For example, we may use your location to ensure that any web pages or communications are tailored to you.

Please note, you are able to change your cookies settings to control access to any device you are using.

We cannot control any information concerning websites other than those operated by us. You must refer to those websites for their terms and conditions and privacy policies.
