LINKS FROM OUR WEBSITE

Our website may contain links to other websites, such as Facebook and Twitter. Please note that we have no control of websites outside the www.boroughbridgechiropody.com domain. If you provide information to a website to which we link, we are not responsible for its protection and privacy. Always be wary when submitting data to websites. Read the site’s data protection and privacy policies fully.

Links to Facebook

On this website, we have a link to our Facebook page. Facebook is a social network.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the "Like" button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our website is made.

The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. These applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.

Links to Twitter

On this website, we also have a link to our Twitter page. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly-accessible microblogging service on which users may publish and spread so-called ‘tweets,’ e.g. short messages, which are limited to 140 characters.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding Twitter component of Twitter. Further information about the Twitter buttons is available under https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. During the course of this technical procedure, Twitter gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. The purpose of the integration of the Twitter component is a retransmission of the contents of this website to allow our users to introduce this web page to the digital world and increase our visitor numbers.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Twitter, Twitter detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Twitter component and associated with the respective Twitter account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, then Twitter assigns this information to the personal Twitter user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in on Twitter at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Twitter component or not. If such a transmission of information to Twitter is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Twitter account before a call-up to our website is made.

The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter may be accessed under https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.

SUBSCRIPTION TO OUR MARKETING EMAILS

On the Boroughbridge Chiropody website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our marketing emails. The sign up form used for this purpose asks for your name and email address.

Boroughbridge Chiropody informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a marketing email about offers and promotions. The marketing email may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers to receive marketing emails. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for email marketing, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorised to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for marketing emails, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for marketing emails will only be used to send our marketing emails. In addition, subscribers to our marketing emails may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the marketing emails service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the marketing emails offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the marketing emails service to third parties. The subscription to our marketing emails may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for marketing emails, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each marketing email. It is also possible to unsubscribe from our marketing emails at any time by contacting us at info@boroughbridgechiropody.co.uk. 

Marketing emails-Tracking

Boroughbridge Chiropody marketing emails also contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Boroughbridge Chiropody may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were clicked on by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in marketing emails are stored and analysed by the controller in order to optimise the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. Boroughbridge Chiropody automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
