The short version – if you can’t bear to read any further (and let’s be honest, who has the time), then please know that we will do our best to always treat your details and personal information with respect and to use our common sense when doing so.
WHO ARE WE
We are We Fell In Love Ltd and we feature modern, unique Scottish weddings, elopements and love stories on our blog, website, social media and in our online magazine. You can read more about us over on the About page if you’d like to know all the deets.
THE PHOTOS WE SHARE
We love nothing more than sharing inspiring stories and featuring modern Scottish weddings in all their glorious diversity.
We couldn’t do this without all the wonderful couples who are willing to share their wedding day with our readers, and we are so grateful to each and every one of them for choosing and trusting us to share their story. The same goes to all the incredible Scottish wedding photographers who have allowed us to share their work. It would be a very empty and dull website without them!
If you submit your wedding or photoshoot to us and consent to us sharing it on our blog but then change your mind down the line and would prefer to have your photos and story removed, then please email us and let us know (email@example.com). We understand that these things happen from time to time and we’ll do our best to take care of this for you just as soon as we can (and definitely within 20 business days).
Due to the nature of the design, we’re unable to remove/change/edit any photos or text in our online magazine after publication.
Please note that we cannot be responsible for photos continuing to appear on third party sites such as Google images and Pinterest – but then you no doubt already know that, that’s just how the internet works.
HOW? WHAT? WHY? – THE INFO WE COLLECT FROM YOU
It probably comes as no surprise that if you fill out our submission form (and we are really hoping you will because we would love to hear all about your wedding!), then we will use the data you provide us with to consider your wedding for a potential feature on our blog, website or magazine. We’ll also get in touch to let you know if, sadly, we are unable to feature your day.
Similarly, if you enter one of our competitions then we’ll use your contact info to let you know if you have won. Woohoo!
And if you sign up for our newsletter or for info on a particular product or event, then we will use your email address to send you the thing you’ve asked us to send you. After all, that was why you popped your email address in that wee box.
We’re not fans of interrupting your life with unnecessary phone calls or spamming folks over email, so please be assured that when we get in touch it will always be for a good reason.
The personal information we collect might include your name, address, email address, IP address, and information regarding what pages are accessed and when. If you purchase a product from us then your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third-party payment processors, who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions (we barely made it through high school maths, so we’ll leave it to the experts).
THE FACEBOOK PIXEL THINGY
You know that magical thing that happens when you look at the very beautiful shoes on Net-A-Porter and then you’re scrolling endlessly through Facebook and, would you believe it, there are those same damn shoes that you’ve been trying not to think about because there’s another 23 days until you get paid and don’t they know that you’re already living on instant noodles?! Well that’s the Facebook pixel in action (but you already knew that, didn’t you?!). So if an advert about us appears in your FB feed, then it’s not because we’re stalking you. It’s because the Facebook pixel is. And we are using it on here.
It is possible to switch off cookies by setting your browser preferences. For more information on how to switch off cookies on your computer, Google “How do I switch off cookies on my computer?”. The flip side though is that turning cookies off may result in a loss of functionality when using our website.
MAIN COOKIES USED ON OUR SITE
These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information anonymously. This includes: the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from (hello you over there in Tasmania!), and the pages they visited.
(This includes video, images and share buttons). Our website may include content embedded from external sites. When visiting pages with content embedded from YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook and others you may be presented with cookies from these websites. We have no control over these cookies and we suggest that you check the information available on the relevant websites if you wish to learn more.
WHO WILL WE SELL YOUR DATA TO?
No-one. That’s not how we roll.
Third party service providers (we tried but there was really no way to make this bit interesting, sorry!)
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 process payments and send you related emails).
However, when we use third-party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the company for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
When you are using our secure store pages, your payments are processed by a third-party payment processor, who specialises in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please shout.
HOW YOU CAN ACCESS AND UPDATE YOUR INFORMATION
The accuracy of your information is important to us. You have the right to request a copy of the information we hold about you. You can do this by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and requesting the information held about you.
RIGHT TO ERASURE
Want to make like a phantom and be gone? Send an email to email@example.com and we’ll get right on it.
SECURITY PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT DATA LOSS/MISUSE
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected by our third party payment processor.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. Even if they offer you a really delicious looking doughnut with an Espresso Martini on the side in exchange, just say no.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
In addition, if you linked to our website from a third-party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third-party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third-party site.
16 OR UNDER
Lucky you – the world is your oyster! Chances are you’re not quite ready to tie the knot, but if you’re thinking of getting in touch then please get your parent/guardian’s permission beforehand whenever you provide us with personal information.
TRANSFERRING YOUR INFO OUTSIDE OF EUROPE
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”) – which, sadly, will include us soon. By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.
If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.
THE END (AT LAST!)
Woohoo, the end is near!
We may change this policy from time to time (we like to switch things up, it keeps life interesting) so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes. By using our website, you’re agreeing to be bound by this policy.
Any questions regarding this policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We keep this policy under regular review. This policy was last updated in November 2018.
