We’re committed to your privacy. We’ll always keep your data safe and secure. This policy defines what information we collect about you and how we use it. It covers the content on The Sweet Reason Company (TSRC) Website under the URL www.thesweetreasoncompany.co.uk. It does not cover any links we have to other websites.

How to unsubscribe from marketing communications?
Marketing communications are sent via email. We would be sad to say goodbye, but if at any point you do not wish to hear from us there are a number of ways you can opt out of receiving marketing communications from us.
If you do not wish to continue to receive email marketing from us, click on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in any email. Each “unsubscribe” link only relates to that specific type of communication (e.g. marketing communications or review communications). This means that unsubscribing from marketing communications will not automatically unsubscribe you from our product or business review communications (or vice versa). Please also note that you may continue to receive communications which are already on route to you for a short period of time while your relevant unsubscribe request is being processed.
Third Party Links and Services
Our site may contain links to and from the websites of our partners. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that they have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
Encryption and SSL
We use the latest secure server technology to ensure your information is protected to the highest standards. We use encryption to safeguard your personal information and only accept orders from web browsers that permit communication through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology – this means you cannot inadvertently place an order through an unsecured connection. Most web browsers above version three support this security. This encryption makes it virtually impossible for unauthorised parties to read any information that you send us. The encryption technique we use is the highest standard available for e-commerce.
