Welcome to Lughnasa Botanicals Natural Skincare and www.lughnasabotanicals.ie, our website uses browser cookies, scripts, web beacons, tracking URLs, pixel tags and similar technologies (hereinafter “cookies”) to provide, protect and improve our website. Below we explain how our cookies work, their purpose, the type of data each collects and how you can manage your cookie settings. We do so in strict accordance with the Irish Data Protection Act (PDA), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive 2002 (PECD).
What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small data files. When you visit our website, these files are downloaded to the browser directory or hard drive of your computer, tablet or smartphone (hereinafter “Device”). Each time you visit our website, the cookie and the website communicate with each other and thus recognise your Device. This is useful for both you and us. For example, a cookie can be used to save your text entries in form fields on the website so that you do not have to enter the same information again the next time you visit the website. This improves the user-friendliness of our website. We manage the cookies using a small program called a tool or tag.
Most browsers automatically allow all cookies, but you can decide whether or not to allow us or external third parties to store cookies on your device. You can change your browser settings at any time so that cookies are no longer accepted or stored. You can also choose to have a warning message displayed each time before accepting cookies. Or you can set your browser so that it only accepts cookies from certain websites. You can also delete cookies that have already been saved. If you delete all cookies, the so-called opt-out cookies, which are intended for rejecting cookies, will also be deleted from your device. Below you will find general instructions on how to manage cookies for the most popular browsers: Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera Web.
