If you don’t wish to enable cookies, you’ll still be able to browse the site and use it for research purposes. Most web browsers have cookies enabled, but see Managing cookies for help to turn them on should you need to.
Please note that cookies can’t harm your computer. We don’t store personally identifiable information such as credit card details in cookies we create, but we do use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of the site. For example, they help us to identify and resolve errors, or to determine relevant related products to show you when you’re browsing.
Types of Cookies
Strictly necessary cookies – These cookies enable you to navigate our site and gain full access to its features and secure areas. Without these cookies essential services you have asked for like ‘Your Basket’ cannot be provided.
Performance cookies – These cookies remember information about how you and other customers use our website. This gives us vital information such as which pages are visited most often and if customers are receiving error messages from certain pages. The role of these cookies is to allow us to analyse and improve the performance of our website ensuring you receive a consistent look, feel and shopping experience.
Performance cookies (often known as web analytic cookies) don’t collect any information that identifies the customer and all information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
Functionality cookies – These cookies remember choices you made on previous visits to our site such as your username, language or region so we can provide enhanced, more personal features. They can also be used to remember changes you’ve made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages you can customise. Functionality cookies can also be used to provide services you have previously asked for such as watching videos or commenting on a blog. The information collected by these cookies may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other sites.
Targeting or advertising cookies – These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to your personal interests. Alongside this, they limit the amount of times you see an advert and measure the effectiveness of adverts. This means you won’t keep seeing irrelevant adverts or the same adverts over and over. These cookies are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and the information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations that generate the advert. When one of these adverts is presented to you on a site there will be a quick and easy way to click in and opt-out of receiving further adverts.
We’re giving you this information as part of our initiative to comply with legislation, and to make sure we’re honest and clear about your privacy when using our website. We know you’d expect nothing less from us, and please be assured that we’re working on a number of other privacy and cookie-related improvements to the website.

How We Use This Information
The information you provide to us is used so that we can offer you, the customer, the best experience possible.
La Di Da are committed to being transparent when it comes to data and your privacy, if you require any further clarification on any of the information below then please contact us via the methods set out on our Contact us area.
We use data that you provide us for the following reasons:
Processing your order – We use the information you provide to process your order. For example, we need to supply address details to our couriers in order for them to dispatch your purchase.
Provide you with order details and account information – This section of the website allows you to manage your contact details, view a history of conversations and messages with our customer services team and view your order history.
Offer a better service – For example, we use anonymised order data to offer better products for sale.
Marketing – Unless you give us consent, we do not use information you provide to us as part of placing an order for marketing purposes. You can opt-in or opt-out to receive marketing communications as outlined below.
Email Tracking – For users that have opted-in to receive marketing emails, we use something called a tracking pixel to monitor the performance of campaigns and send you the most relevant offers. The tracking pixel tracks when you open an email from us and allows us to see information like what type of device you are using and where you are reading from, so we can better tailor content to our users’ needs. For instance, so we don’t keep sending marketing emails to users that are unresponsive. When you sign up and opt-in to receive email marketing emails from us, we collect the IP address used to register and the date and time of registration. This is so we have a record of when consent was given to us to contact you with marketing messages, in relation to your rights under GDPR.
Research – We use anonymised order data for market research purposes. For example, to report on how many orders we had from a city/town in a given period.
Analysis We use anonymised data about how you use the website in order to monitor traffic and website performance. We use tools like Google Analytic to do this.
For more information on how you can opt-out of sending information to Google Analytics, see Google’s support document.
