Welcome to Melon & Lime’s (M&L yoga's) privacy policy. M&L yoga respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal data.

1. Introduction

This privacy policy tells you how M&L yoga uses your personal data when you visit our website www.melonandlime.com, interact with us, and buy our goods and services.

It also tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

M&L yoga addresses the personal data protection and terms in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, which is a European regulation on data protection and privacy (GDPR).

2. The types of personal data we may collect include:

We collect a variety of information about customers and visitors to the M&L yoga website.  

Personal data we collect fall into these categories:

  • Identity Data includes title, first name, last name.
  • Contact Data includes billing address, delivery address, email address and telephone numbers.

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature.

However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

M&L yoga may also ask for “non-Personal information,” i.e., information that, alone, cannot be used to identify or contact you. You may be asked to submit non-Personal information with Personal information or separately.

User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes. If you arrived at M&L yoga website via a link from another webpage, M&L yoga may receive aggregate or otherwise anonymous statistical information about your visit to the site. M&L yoga monitors customer traffic patterns and site usage to help develop the design and layout of the site, and to improve the content of website. M&L yoga may combine this automatically collected and other non-Personal information with Personal information, in which case M&L yoga will treat the combined information as Personal information under this Privacy Policy.

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data).

Here is a list of cookies that M&L yoga use. M&L yoga has listed them here so you that you can choose if you want to opt-out of cookies or not.

This website uses third-party vendor such as Google AdWords, Facebook, Pinterest and Youtube service to advertise on third party websites to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who have not completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. Third-party vendors use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the http://melonandlime.com website. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and privacy policy of the third party vendor.  Alternatively, you can opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies by visiting Settings pages. By using this site, you represent that you are eligible to use this Site and services as M&L yoga’ Terms of use require.

To provide better content and service, M&L yoga website www.melonandlime.com uses the Google Analytics and Hotjar web analytics service. Hotjar web analytics records mouse actions and scrolling movement, as well as basic interactions with website forms. Hotjar does not track your browsing habits across other third-party websites and all information about you which reaches Hotjar contains no personal data about you. Please see their privacy policy.

5. Payment information

M&L yoga uses third party payment processors Braintree and PayPal to process payments made for products and services via the Website. All online payments will be conducted in accordance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards (which are high!) and your billing information (which is only used by these payment processors for the purpose of performing fraud protection) is encrypted before being communicated to them. Subject to the below exceptions, your credit card details are communicated directly from your browser to these payment processors – M&L yoga never (ever!) sees your full Permanent Account Number (PAN). This means that the payment form is either off-site or displayed in a frame on the payment page. We only separately the last 4 digits and card type so that we can identify transactions made by a particular card and issue a refunds.

For PayPal we only store the tokens required to identify the transaction with PayPal, issue refunds and identify transactions made using PayPal.

6. Advertising, marketing and your communications preferences

We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Tracking, Usage to form a picture of what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you and tell you about them. This is what we call direct marketing.

We may carry out direct marketing by email, phone, text or post.

On our website, we always try hard to make it really clear what we are doing and what communications you will be sent, whether it’s you deciding to sign up to the Newsletter or as part of creating an account or the purchase journey – and you have a right at any time to change your mind and say no thank you and opt out. The easiest way to opt out is to use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the communication.

Of course, there are lots of different ways you’ll see adverts for Melon & Lime out and about, and not all of these are based on using personal data. If you see Melon & Lime adverts on websites and in social media, these may not be directed specifically at you, we might just have bid for the space. But here’s some things we may do that may be specifically directed at you:

  • emails, for example the newsletter

We also work with partners to try and promote the reach of our adverts and use analytics and retargeting for this reason. We use Tracking Data to deliver relevant online advertising, including via websites and social media.

Tracking Data, and particular cookies, help us to deliver website and social advertising that we believe is most relevant to you and to potential new customers of Melon & Lime. The cookies used for this purpose are often placed on our website by specialist organizations. We also use these cookies to implement retargeting strategies.

Cookies can also tell us if you have seen a specific advert, and how long it has been since you have seen it. This is helpful, because it means we can control the effectiveness of our adverts and control the number of times people might be shown our adverts (you know, before we risk become annoying). Cookies also help us understand if you’ve opened a marketing email because we don’t want to send you things you don’t read.

If you want more information about Tracking Data, in particular cookies, see Cookies below.

Almost all the cookies that relate to advertising are part of third party online advertising networks. If you’d like to read about how you can control which adverts you see online, see opt-out programs established by the Facebook, Pinterest and Google Adwords.

7. E-mail marketing

You may unsubscribe from receiving marketing or other commercial emails from M&L yoga by following the instructions included in the email. However, even if you opt out of receiving such communications, we retain the right to send you non-marketing communications (such as order confirmation emails or changes in our website or mobile app terms).
