For the purposes of GDPR, La Taranta is acting as a data processor and controller of your Data.

If you have any questions regarding this policy or complaints about our use of your data, please contact us at or feel free to contact any of our staff directly.

  1. What we use your Data for

The table in Annex 1 to this Privacy Notice sets out the categories of your Data that we hold, the purposes for which we may process your Data and the lawful basis for processing.

  1. Data security

We have implemented appropriate security measures to prevent your Data from being lost, used or accidentally accessed in an unauthorised, altered or disclosed manner. In addition, we limit access to your data to those who have a business need to know.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected Data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

  1. Who we share your Data with

In exceptional cases, we may be required to share your Data:

  1. Retention Period

We will only retain your Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, tax, regulatory or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for your Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of your Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your Data, the purposes for which we process your Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements

b. right to rectification and erasure: you have the right to obtain rectification of inaccurate personal Data we hold concerning you and to obtain the erasure of your Data without undue delay in certain circumstances;

c. right to restriction of processing: you may require us to restrict the processing we carry out on your Data in certain circumstances;

Please note that, in circumstances where you are seeking to exercise your rights as a data subject, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights).
