GDPR-compliant Privacy Policy

Looking after your personal data is very important to me. The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR for short comes into action on the 25th of May 2018 and is designed to give you more control over how your data is used. I want you to feel secure when providing your information to Elizabeth Larsen Knitwear and this Privacy Policy is intended to inform you about the type(s) of information I gather and how I use it.

I've tried to simplify the writing of my Privacy Policy, so that a) it's not too long winded that you give up reading it, and b) it's written without too much terminology and can be easily understood.

HOW I USE COOKIES

As of May 2018 new regulations require every website within the EU to disclose how your data is managed. This includes the data that is automatically collected by the cookies that are used by this website.

'Cookies usually don't contain much information except for the url of the website that created the cookie, the duration of the cookie's abilities and effects, and a random number. Due to the little amount of information a cookie contains, it usually cannot be used to reveal your identity or personally identifying information.' http://www.allaboutcookies.org/cookies/


This site uses two different types of cookies. You can find further details below. 

  • A “session” cookie is temporary and is deleted once you close your browser. 

  • A “persistent” cookie is more permanent and is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Persistent cookies are used to customize a website for a user. They may store passwords, preferences, registration and account information so that users do not have to re-enter this information each time they visit the website.
