What are cookies?
The law on cookies demands that you, as a website user, are given the opportunity to understand how cookies are used on our websites and consent to cookies being stored on your computer (laptop/mobile/tablet).
A cookie is a small text file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded to your computer when you access websites. Typically, they contain the following information: a site name and unique user ID, the duration of the cookie's abilities and effects, and a random number. As a rule, cookies cannot be used to reveal your identity or personally identifying information.
Generally, the role of cookies is beneficial, making your interaction with frequently-visited sites smoother with no extra effort on your part. Without cookies, online shopping would be much harder. Without cookies, some websites will become less interactive with the cookie option turned off.
Common cookies and their use:
Session Cookies: These cookies expire when you close your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome), or if you stay inactive for a certain time. They’re used on websites so you can continue browsing without losing products or items that you add to your shopping basket.
Permanent or persistent cookies: These cookies are still stored (or persist) on your computer even when the browser is closed. They do have an expiry date and by law, they can't exist for more than 6 months. These cookies are used for a variety of purposes, for example, remembering your preferences on a website.
First and third-party cookies: This makes reference to the website placing the cookie. For example a first-party cookie is a cookie set by the website you are currently visiting. Third-party cookies are set or installed by another website. Third party cookies on the main web browsers allow third party cookies by default. Changing the settings on your browsers can prevent this.

Accessing and deleting your data
European Data Protection Legislation gives you the right to access information held about you. You are entitled to be told by us whether we or someone else on our behalf is processing your personal information; what personal information we hold; details of the purposes for the processing of your personal information; and details of any third party with whom your personal information has been shared.
You can access the personal information we hold on you by emailing us at email@example.com We will ask you to provide proof of identity before we disclose your personal information – this is so we can prevent unauthorised access. For any data access request made after 25 May 2018 that is deemed excessive or especially repetitive, we may charge a ‘reasonable fee’ for meeting that request. Similarly, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with requests for further copies of the same information. (That fee will be based upon the administrative costs of providing the information). You will also be entitled to receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and to transmit that data to another data controller.
You have the additional rights to request rectification and erasure of your personal data and to request restriction of, and to otherwise object to, our processing of your personal data and you can exercise these rights at any time by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Withdrawal of consent
Where we process your personal data we do so on the basis that you have provided your consent for us to do so for the purposes set out in this Policy when you submitted your personal data to us. You may withdraw your consent to this processing at any time by emailing us at email@example.com
Links to other sites
French Recipes by Doria may provide links to third party sites. Since we do not control those websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of these third party sites. Any information that is supplied on these sites will not be within our control and we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of these.
Where we store your personal data
We follow accepted ISO standards to store and protect the personal data we collect, including the use of encryption if appropriate.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secured servers within the EEA (European Economic Area). From time to time, your information may be transferred to and stored in a country outside the EEA in relation to provision of the associated bookings and services. The laws in these countries may not provide you with the same protection as in the EEA; however, any third party referred to above outside of the EEA has agreed to abide by European levels of data protection in respect of the transfer, processing and storage of any personal data. By providing your data to us, you agree to this transfer and storage. However, we will ensure that reasonable steps are taken to protect your data in accordance with this privacy notice.
As the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Any sensitive data (payment details for example) are encrypted and protected.
Where we may have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website (or any other site we support including our support suite), you are responsible for keeping the password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Security & liability
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We take all reasonable measures to protect your data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws.
In the event of a data breach, we shall ensure that our obligations under applicable data protection laws are complied with where necessary.
Please email any questions or comments you have about privacy to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at our registered office address.
