Privacy Policy

September, 2018

Thanks for showing interest in this website. Data protection is of a particularly high priority. The use of this website is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special services via this website, processing of personal data could become necessary.


1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of La Pinya is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This data protection declaration aims to be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as customers and business partners. For information on the GDPR definitions go to this link. 


2. personal information

Personal information will only be asked for when truly needed to provide a service to you. It is collected by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. In this declaration, you will also be informed why it is being collected and how it will be used.

Collected information will only be retained for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service. What data is stored, will be protected within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

This Website only collects the Personally Identifiable Information you voluntarily provide, which may include:

·      Your name and email address in order to contact me via the contact form.

·      Your email address in order to subscribe to the mailing list. This website uses a service provider for email subscription.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to La Pinya. By means of this data protection declaration, La Pinya would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.


3. Cookies

This website uses cookies and similar technologies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the users of this website are provided with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on this website can be optimized with the user in mind. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. 

La Pinya is a Squarespace website hosted by Squarespace. Analytics and Performance Cookies are disabled unless you consent by closing our Cookie Banner. Some functional and required cookies might still be placed. Read more about Squarespace’s use of cookies

The data subject may also, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.


4. Collection of general data and information

This website collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This information is typically considered Non Personal Information. 

When using these general data and information, La Pinya does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. 

This website is hosted by Squarespace and data is stored on Squarespace’s storage system. Therefore, this website is subject to Squarespace's Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

6. Service Providers

La Pinya may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate the Service ("Service Providers"), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on La Pinya’s behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.


La Pinya may use third-party Service Providers such as Squarespace Analytics to monitor and analyze the use of the Service.

7. Transfer Of Data

Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside Spain and choose to provide information to La Pinya, please note that data, including Personal Data, is transferred to Spain and processed there.

La Pinya will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 


8. Disclosure Of Data

Legal Requirements

La Pinya may disclose your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

·       To comply with a legal obligation

·       To protect and defend the rights or property of La Pinya

·       To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service

·       To protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public

·       To protect against legal liability


9. Security Of Data

The security of your data is high priority at La Pinya, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data are applied at any point, but absolute security cannot be guaranteed.


10. Comments function in the blog on the website

La Pinya offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Blogposts may usually be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on the user's (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.


11. Your Rights

In accordance with GDRP law you have the right to be aware of the lawfulness how your personal data is being processed. For more information on your rights, contact the GDPR website.

If you would like to know what data is held about you, who has access to it and how it is being used or would like us to delete any data about you that we hold, please contact me


12. Children's Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 ("Children").

Personally identifiable information is not collected knowingly from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact me. If I become aware that Personal Data from children has been collected without verification of parental consent, steps are taken to remove that information from the servers.


13. Changes To This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. Notifications of any changes will be posted to this page.

An email and/or a prominent notice will be sent prior to the change becoming effective, and the "effective date" at the top of this Privacy Policy will be updated.
