Website Privacy Notice

Privacy Notice

This is the privacy notice of Mary-Thea Brosnan T/A Kerry Kefir (626127) (‘we’, ‘our’, or ‘us’).

Our registered office is at Tralee Road, Castleisland, Co. Kerry.


This notice describes how we collect, store, transfer and use personal data. It tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

In the context of the law and this notice, ‘personal data’ is information that clearly identifies you as an individual or which could be used to identify you if combined with other information. Acting in any way on personal data is referred to as ‘processing’.

This notice applies to personal data collected through our website and through social media platforms and online retail platforms, including Facebook, Instagram.

Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.

Personal data we process

– How we obtain personal data

The information we process about you includes information:

    • you have directly provided to us
    • that we gather from third party databases and service providers
    • as a result of monitoring how you use our website or our services

– Types of personal data we collect directly

    When you use our website, our services or buy from us, [for example, when you sign up to our email notifications on our website, or if you order through our website] we ask you to provide personal data. This can be categorised into the following groups:

      • personal identifiers, such as your first and last names, your title and your date of birth
      • contact information, such as your email address, your telephone number and your postal addresses for billing, delivery and communication
      • payment information, such as a debit or credit card number and expiry date and bank account details
      • records of communication between us including messages sent through our website, email messages and telephone conversations
      • marketing preferences that tell us what types of marketing you would like to receive

    – Types of personal data we collect from your use of our services

      By using our website and our services, we process:

        • information you contribute to our community, including reviews
        • your replies to polls and surveys
        • usage information, including the frequency you use our services, the pages of our website that you visit, whether you receive messages from us and whether you reply to those messages
        • transaction information that includes the details of the products services you have bought from us and payments made to us for those services
        • your preferences to receive marketing from us; how you wish to communicate with us; and responses and actions in relation to your use of our services.

      Our use of aggregated information

        We may aggregate anonymous information such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Anonymous information is that which does not identify you as an individual. Aggregated information may be derived from your personal data but is not considered as such in law because it does not reveal your identity.

        For example, we may aggregate usage information to assess whether a feature of our website is useful.

        However, if we combine or connect aggregated information with your personal data so that it can identify you in any way, we treat the combined information as personal data, and it will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.

        – Special personal data

        We may collect special personal data about you if there is a lawful basis on which to do so.

        • If you do not provide personal data we need

        Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform that contract.

        In that case, we may have to stop providing a service to you. If so, we will notify you of this at the time.

        The bases on which we process information about you

        The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal data, and to notify you of the basis for each category.

        If a basis on which we process your personal data is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.

        If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.

        – Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you

        When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.

        In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal data.

        We may use it in order to:

          • verify your identity for security purposes when you use our services
          • sell products to you
          • provide you with our services
          • provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website

        We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.

        We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.

        – Information we process with your consent

        Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal data.

        Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information, for example, we ask you to agree to our use of non-essential cookies when you access our website.

        If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.

        We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.

        You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.

        We aim to obtain and keep your consent to process your information. However, while we take your consent into account in decisions about whether or not to process your personal data, the withdrawal of your consent does not necessarily prevent us from continuing to process it. The law may allow us to continue to process your personal data, provided that there is another basis on which we may do so. For example, we may have a legal obligation to do so.

        – Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests

        We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.

        Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:

          • whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
          • whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
          • whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so

        For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:

          • improving our services
          • record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business
          • responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
          • preventing fraudulent use of our services
          • exercising our legal rights, including to detect and prevent fraud and to protect our intellectual property
          • insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk
          • protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so

        Information we process because we have a legal obligation

          Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.

          For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.

          This may include your personal data.

          How and when we process your personal data

          – Information you provide

          Our website allows you to post information with a view to that information being read, copied, downloaded, or used by other people.

          For example, when you leave a review or post a message on our website, we reasonably assume that you consent for the message to be seen by others. We may include your username with your message, and your message may contain information that is personal data.

          Other examples include:

          tagging an image

          In posting personal data, it is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might use it.

          We do not specifically use this information except to allow it to be displayed or shared.

          We do store it, and we reserve a right to use it in the future in any way we decide.

          We provide you with a public profile page, the information on which may be indexed by search engines or used by third parties. The information you provide on that profile page may be made available to the public.

          Once your information enters the public domain, we have no control over what any individual third party may do with it. We accept no responsibility for their actions at any time.

          Provided your request is reasonable and there is no legal basis for us to retain it, then at our discretion we may agree to your request to delete personal data that you have posted. You can make a request by contacting us at
