How Information Is Used

The Ficarra’s Spa primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with personalised services, interactive communications and online shopping ease. When you are on the Website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with The Ficarra’s Spa alone. The Ficarra’s Spa does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances: (a) to protect the security of our web site and our rights as set forth in our Terms and Conditions, (b) in response to legal process or proceedings, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims (c) when we believe in good faith that the law requires such action, (d) to a trusted partner who works with or on behalf of The Ficarra’s Spa, provided that such partner delivers to us a confidentiality agreement confirming to us that they do not have an independent right to share this information with others, or (e) in connection with a sale of our business or company.

 

Access To Personally Identifiable Information
To ensure that your personally identifiable information (PII) is accurate and up-to-date, we encourage you to regularly review and update your information as appropriate (e.g. in the event your home or e-mail address changes, or you wish to add an additional method for us to communicate with you). If you are a client of The Ficarra’s Spa, you can review and update your induvial client profile with the assistance of one of The Ficarra’s Spa staff members.

Please note that in an effort to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of your PII, you may be asked to provide proof of identity (or other authentication materials). Access to PII cannot be provided by telephone.

If, you wish to deactivate or update your PII, we will endeavour to do so in a timely manner. Occasionally, information that you request to be removed will be retained in certain files for a period of time in order to properly resolve disputes or to troubleshoot problems. In addition, some types of information may be stored indefinitely on “back up” systems or within log files due to technical constraints, or financial or legal requirements. Therefore, you should not always expect that all of your PII will be completely removed from our databases in response to your request.

 

You are entitled to see the information held about you and you may ask us to make any necessary changes to ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date. If you wish to do this, please contact us. You may notify us of any amendments and corrections to previously collected information by:

We are the owner or the licensee of all intellectual property rights in our Website, and in the material published on it. Those works are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved. You may print off one copy, and may download extracts, of any page(s) from our site for your personal reference and you may draw the attention of others within your organisation to material posted on our site. You must not modify the paper or digital copies of any materials you have printed off or downloaded in any way, and you must not use any illustrations, photographs, video or audio sequences or any graphics separately from any accompanying text. Our status (and that of any identified contributors) as the authors of material on our site must always be acknowledged. You must not use any part of the materials on our site for commercial purposes without obtaining a licence to do so from us or our licensors.

Reliance on information posted

Commentary and other materials posted on our site are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.

 

Security Safeguard

As required by the Data Protection Act 1998, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given to us to prevent unauthorised access.

The Ficarra’s Spa recognizes the importance of information security, and is constantly reviewing and enhancing our technical, physical and logical security rules and procedures. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. The Ficarra’s Spa owned Websites and servers have security measures in place to help protect your personally identifiable information (PII) against loss, misuse, and alteration while under our control. Although “guaranteed security” does not exist either on or off the Internet, we safeguard your information using both procedural and technical safeguards, including password controls, “firewalls” and the use of encryption to help protect your data from interception and hacking while in transit. [Malware?]

When you place an order online at www.theficarras.co.uk, your credit card information is protected through the use of encryption technology, generally known as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. SSL makes it difficult for your credit card information to be intercepted or stolen during transmission. We use PayPal as our secure payment gateway. PayPal encodes sensitive information like your credit card number when it passes through the internet.

We reserve the right to appoint an Internet Service Provider to host our Website on our behalf which may be situated outside the European Economic Area. By agreeing to our terms and conditions of use of our Website you consent to any transfer of your personal information outside the European Economic Area. You should be aware that countries outside the European Union may have a lower standard of protection for personal information than that required by the Data Protection Act 1998.
