Privacy, Security and Cookies Policies

Personally identifiable information refers to information that specifically identifies who you are. www.plussize.co.uk does not collect personally identifiable information, but using www.plussize.co.uk implies that you consent to other parties possibly tracking your shopping behaviour, on my behalf, in relation to the Retail Merchants you may visit after clicking through links.

PlusSize.co.uk is dedicated to establishing trusting relationships with its users, based on respect for personal information, by promoting the use of fair information practices. This privacy policy (the “Policy”) is designed to inform you about the types of information that I might in future gather about you, how I may use that information, whether I disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding my use of that information. This Policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically.

Links and banners appearing on www.plussize.co.uk to retail merchants and their products, are delivered to users through various third party Affiliate Networks acting on behalf of those merchants.  I may or may not receive commissions from these retailers. These Affiliate Networks use ‘Cookies’ to track your shopping behaviour after you leave www.plussize.co.uk.

COOKIES

Under the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (as amended) it is my duty to tell you how www.plussize.co.uk uses Cookies.

‘Cookies’ from Affiliate Networks are place on www.plussize.co.uk. These Cookies are little bits of information in the Banner or Link codes which allows Affiliate Networks to track your shopping behaviour in relation to the Retail Merchant’s website you visit, via the Affiliate Network, after leaving www.plussize.co.uk.   Although you may not be aware of this visit to the Affiliate Network (because it will be so quick) you will go to the Retail Merchant’s website via the Affiliate Network website after leaving www.plussize.co.uk

By clicking on a Merchant Banner or Text Link, you will be directed to the Merchant’s website via the Affiliate Network that has given www.plussize.co.uk the Merchant’s Banner. These Affiliate Networks use Cookies to track information about users’ visits to www.plussize.co.uk, such as number of times you have viewed an ad, or the number of items you bought and amount spent. Affiliate Network Cookies identify and track your computer, but do not collect user names, addresses, passwords or other personal information, and are only used to track users delivered to third party websites by www.plussize.co.uk to determine commissions due to me, if any. Affiliate Network Cookies stop tracking after a set time, usually determined by the Retail Merchant. The Retail Merchant will often be given your tracking information from the Affiliate Network, so that they don’t pay ‘double commission’ to me.

Affiliate Networks will never contact you, but if you choose to give further information to the Retail Merchants you visit, you may receive emails or offers if you choose to register with them. Their privacy policies may differ from my Policy.

PlusSize.co.uk, as the vast majority of websites do, also uses analytics to see where my viewers are located and how they found www.plussize.co.uk.  Analytic cookies, like those from Google, only identify your computer, and do not collect personal identifying information.

WHAT I DO NOT DO, AND WILL NOT DO.

If you choose to give me personally identifiable information, I will not share it with third parties. If you choose to give me personally identifiable information, you may occasionally receive emails containing information about me, or information about third party services or affiliate programs that are likely to be of interest to you, my users. You will always be able to opt-out of receiving such emails from me.

I will disclose personally identifiable information upon receipt of a court order or subpoena or in order to assist a law enforcement investigation.  I will fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use my website services for illegal activities.
