Privacy, Security and Cookies Policy

Personally identifiable information refers to information that specifically identifies who you are. Our Websites do not collect personally identifiable information, but using our websites implies that you consent to other parties possibly tracking your shopping behaviour, on our behalf, in relation to the Retail Merchants you may visit after clicking our banners and links.

Our Websites Group is dedicated to establishing trusting relationships with its users, based on respect for personal information, by promoting the use of fair information practices. This privacy policy covers all Web properties owned and maintained by The Plus Size Websites Group, including Probiotic.co.uk. This privacy policy (the "Policy") is designed to inform you about the types of information that we might in future gather about you, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of that information. This Policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically.

Most of the banner ads, and some links, appearing on our Websites are delivered to users through various third party Affiliate Networks, acting on behalf of Retail Merchants, from whom we may then receive commissions. These Affiliate Networks use 'Cookies' to track your shopping behaviour after you leave our websites.


Under the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (as amended) it is our duty to tell you how our websites use Cookies.

We place 'Cookies' from Affiliate Networks on our websites. These Cookies are little bits of information in the Banner and Link codes which allows Affiliate Networks track your shopping behaviour in relation to the Retail Merchant's website you visit, via the Affiliate Network, after leaving our Websites. Although you may not be aware of this visit to the Affiliate Network, because it will be so quick, you will go to the Retail Merchant's website via the Affiliate Network website after leaving ours.

By clicking on a Merchant Banner or Text Link, you will be directed to the Merchant's website via the Affiliate Network that has given us the Merchant's Banner. These Affiliate Networks use Cookies to track information about users' visits to our Websites, such as number of times you have viewed an ad, or the number of items you bought and amount spent. Affiliate Network Cookies identify and track your computer, but do not collect user names, addresses, or other personal information, and are only used to track users delivered to third party websites by our Websites to determine commissions due to us, if any. Affiliate Network Cookies stop tracking after a set time, usually determined by the Retail Merchant. The Retail Merchant will often be given your tracking information from the Affiliate Network, so that they don't pay 'double commission' to us.

Affiliate Networks will never contact you, but if you choose to give further information to the Retail Merchants you visit, you may receive emails or offers if you choose to register with them. Their privacy policies may differ from our Policy.

Our Websites may also contain non-advertising links to other sites. Please be aware that Probiotic.co.uk is not responsible for the privacy practices or cookie policy of such other sites. Please be aware that when you leave our sites, you need to read the privacy statements and cookie policy of each and every website you then go to that collects personally identifiable information.


In future we might request personally identifiable information if you register with us or correspond with us, but as yet this is not our policy. This information might include your name, mailing address, telephone number or e-mail address.

Third party advertising partners will not have access to any personally identifiable information you might choose to give to us. If you choose to give us personally identifiable information, we will not share it with third parties. If you choose to give us personally identifiable information, you may occasionally receive emails containing information about us, or information about third party services or affiliate programs that are likely to be of interest to our users. You will be able to opt-out of receiving such emails from us.

In future we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information to appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose personally identifiable information upon receipt of a court order or subpoena or in order to assist a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our Websites' services for illegal activities.

In the event that The Plus Size Websites Group or Probiotic.co.uk goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, any users' personally identifiable information that we have will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users may be notified prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If as a result of the business transition, the users' personally identifiable information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, users may object to such use by contacting us at our given contact phone numbers.

The Policy was last changed on June 5th, 2012. If we make changes to any terms or conditions of the Policy, the changes will be posted in this document so that you will always know what information we gather, as well as how we might use that information and to whom we may disclose it. We may change, modify, add or remove portions of the Policy at any time. Please be sure to check this page before proceeding to use the Website.
