Advertisement technology

As described above, we may use service providers to help us manage, carry out and improve our advertising. These parties set cookies at our direction to help us collect information and provide you with advertisements that we believe would be relevant for you. In some instances, these parties may also assist us by providing certain statistical and analytics information in relation to our marketing practices.

We also may share information collected through cookies (and other tracking technologies) with third parties to use for their own analytics and marketing purposes. These third parties may serve targeted advertising to you about our brand and other WG&S brands based on your consent.

Other technologies such as tracking pixels may also be used on our websites, in email messages and in other areas of our business. These technologies are used to improve our products and services as well as our marketing efforts. We use pixels to help us determine the success of our advertising campaigns, such as to give us insight into whether you opened, deleted, or forwarded an email, or clicked on a link contained in the email.

We and our service providers may serve targeted advertisements through the data we collect from you, first-party or third-party cookies, pixels and web beacons when you visit our website. We do this to provide you with advertising that we believe may be relevant for you as well as improve our own products and services, including the functionality and performance of our websites. This means that you may see our banners and ads when you are on other websites such as on social media. We manage this through a variety of digital marketing networks and advertising technologies explained above. These banners and ads are based on the data we hold of you, your previous use of our website, or through our banners and ads that you clicked on.
If you are using these third-party functions, you are also protected by the privacy policies of these third parties. To learn more about opting out of certain types of targeted advertising, please see the Cookie Notice at https://www.ailsabay.com/cookie-policy.html .
Information you post on public areas of our site and social media

This means that it is generally accessible to, and may be collected by, others and may be used by them to send you unsolicited messages. We do not have control over if or how other people may use that information therefore you should use caution and ensure not to disclose personal information when using public web areas or social media. We will not be responsible for any postings that you make with personal information in them. Please read this section in conjunction with our https://www.ailsabay.com/terms-and-conditions.html .

Who we share your information with
We may share your personal informationwith the following third parties:

International Data Transfers and personal information held internationally

As we operate via a global network of corporate offices, it may be necessary to transfer your information, for example, information collected in connection with a brand, joining one of our emailing lists or interacting with us through our websites, emails, or our other digital channels to a country outside of the country where it was originally collected or outside of your country of residence or nationality. The information that you provide us may be transferred to any of our WG&S owned or affiliated entities around the world for the purposes of carrying out or facilitating these services and in compliance with the applicable laws. We will take steps to make sure such transfer is carefully managed to protect your privacy rights.

Further, we will only transfer personal information to countries which are recognised as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where we can be satisfied those alternative arrangements are in place to protect your privacy rights. We will also make sure that any requests for information we receive from law enforcement or regulators will be carefully validated before personal information is disclosed, where permitted by the applicable law.

Information Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered, or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to any of our affiliated websites. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures.

How long we keep your personal information

We will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting obligations that we may have. We will only keep personal data for longer where there is a legal requirement for us to do so.

To determine how long we should keep your information for, we will consider the amount, type, and sensitivity of the personal information involved as well as the potential risk of harm if it is lost or used or disclosed without authorisation. We will also consider the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means without the need to keep your data.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data (see section on "Your rights" below for more information).
In some circumstances, we may also anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you, for example for statistical purposes. Where we do this, we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Your rights

Access to your information You have the right to request a copy of the personal information about you that we hold.  
Correcting your information We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate, complete, and up to date, and you may ask us to correct any personal information about you that you believe does not meet these standards.
Deletion of your information You have the right to ask us to delete personal information about you where:

Objecting to how we may use your information You have the right at any time to require us to stop using your personal information for direct marketing purposes.  In addition, where we use your personal information to perform tasks carried out in the public interest or pursuant to the legitimate interests of us or a third party then, if you ask us to, we will stop using that personal information unless there are overriding legitimate grounds to continue.
Restricting how we may use your informationIn some cases, you may ask us to restrict how we use your personal information.  This right might apply, for example, where we are checking the accuracy of personal information about you that we hold or assessing the validity of any objection you have made to our use of your information.  The right might also apply where this is no longer a basis for using your personal information, but you don't want us to delete the data.  Where this right is validly exercised, we may only use the relevant personal information with your consent, for legal claims or where there are other public interest grounds to do so.
Portability If we process personal information that you provide to us on the basis of consent or because it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party, and in either case that processing is carried out by automated means, then you have the right to have that personal information transmitted to you in a machine-readable format. Where technically feasible, you also have the right to have that personal information transmitted directly to another controller.
Automated processing If we use your personal information on an automated basis to make decisions which significantly affect you, you have the right to ask that the decision be reviewed by an individual to whom you may make representations and contest the decision.  This right only applies where we use your information with your consent or as part of a contractual relationship with you
Withdrawing consent using your information Where we use your personal information with your consent you may withdraw that consent at any time, and we will stop using your personal information for the purpose(s) for which consent was given.
