  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Lost Loch Spirits Ltd collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Lost Loch Spirits Ltd’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Lost Loch Spirits Ltd’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Lost Loch Spirits Ltd may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, eg. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

 

Lost Loch Spirits Ltd also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Lost Loch Spirits Ltd only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

 

Gathering of personally-identifying information

Certain visitors to the Lost Loch Spirits Ltd’s website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Lost Loch Spirits Ltd gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Lost Loch Spirits Ltd updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Lost Loch Spirits Ltd collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Lost Loch Spirits Ltd. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

 

Third party services

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
