We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site. For detailed information on the cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them see our Cookie Policy below.

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination within the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.  We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

All information you provide to us through the website is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

All information you provide to us other than through the website (including but not limited to manual booking forms, questionnaires, and health assessments) will be stored on local PC and or a portable device held at our trading premises.  All devices are password protected and the trading premises are secured when no personnel are on the premises.  Where files contain sensitive personal data (e.g. medical information), these files are individually password protected.

We use information held about you in the following ways:
• To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
• To provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes.
• To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.
• To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.
• To notify you about changes to our service.
• To ensure that we provide you with a safe and professional service tailored to your particular individual needs.
We may also use your data to provide you with information about goods and services which may be of interest to you and we may contact you about these by post or telephone.  We will not pass on your information to third parties for the provision of or marketing of goods and services without your prior written consent.

If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you.  If you are a new customer, we will contact you by electronic means only if you have consented to this.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties only if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Use or Terms and Conditions of Supply and other agreements; or to protect our rights, property, or safety, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing at any time by contacting jo@joannesumner.com.
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates.  If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.  Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.

We use cookies across our website to distinguish you from other users of our website.  This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

There are typical four types of cookies that can be used:
• Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of a website. They include, for example, cookies that enable a user to log into secure areas of a website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
• Analytical/performance cookies. They allow a website to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around a website when they are using it. This helps website owners to improve the way their website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
• Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise a user when they return to a website. This enables the website owner to personalise its content for the user, greet a user by name and remember a user’s preferences (for example, their choice of language or region).
• Targeting cookies. These cookies record a visitor or user visit to a website, the pages they have visited and the links they have followed.  This information is used to make a website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to the visitor’s or user’s interests.   Website owners may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

We use “strictly necessary” cookies on our website:
(a) We use a cookie called PHPSESSID which is known as a session cookie. It is a temporary cookie used for the operation of the website that will remain in the cookie file of your browser until you close your browser.
(b) If you create an account on our website, or log in to an existing account, 2 session cookies called activuser and activdata will be placed on your computer and will remain in the cookie file of your browser until you close your browser.


We use PayPal to provide a secure payment mechanism.  Paypal will use cookies to track and manage your payments and therefore when we process payments using PayPal, Paypal may place one or more cookies on your computer during the payment process. We have no control over those cookies or any other third party cookies that may be placed as a result, however you can find out about PayPal’s privacy policy and approach to cookies.   The nature and purpose of the cookies are explained here.  Details of PayPal’s security and privacy policies can be found here.

Google Maps
We may use Google Maps on our website to provide detailed information on how to locate our offices.  Google Maps stores up to four cookies: khcookie, NID, SNID and PREF. We use Google’s maps as they provide a helpful way for you to identify how best to travel to us.   Details of Google privacy policy can be found here.

We use MailChimp for our newsletters and therefore when you sign-up to subscribe to newsletters through our website, you are required to follow a link which takes you away from our website to a form which you complete and which are held on eepurl.com and joannesumner.us2.list-manage.com.  The cookie used by MailChimp in providing this service is AVESTA_ENVIRONMENT. We have no control over this cookie, or any other third party cookies that may be placed as a result however details of Mail Chimps privacy policy can be found here.

Other Third Party Sites
Please note that our website includes links to third-party web sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. When you follow a link from our website to another website, cookies may be set.  We have no control over cookies used by any such third party website.  Each of these sites will have their own privacy and cookie policies and we urge you to review these. We cannot take any responsibility for the contents or behaviour or third-party sites.

Please note that our advertisers may also use cookies, over which we have no control.

You may block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our website.
