Privacy Policy


Privacy Policy & Cookies


At The Little Berko Bakery, it’s of paramount importance to me that your privacy is protected. I appreciate that the Privacy Policy is probably not going to be your first port of call when visiting my website (and I’m with you – hopefully you’ve come for the stylish wedding cakes, not the dry-but-necessary documentation!) However this is worth a read and will explain the types of personal data I may collect about you when you interact with me. It also explains how I will store and handle that data and keep it safe.


This Privacy Policy is valid from 03/01/23. It’s likely that I’ll need to update this Privacy Notice from time to time, so do come back and check it on the website whenever you wish (and have a scroll through my latest galleries while you’re at it!).


If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact me on or in writing to Sam McKay at my registered office: 24 Chiltern Close, Berkhamsted, Herts, HP4 3JR


What sort of personal data do I collect?
I only ever collect the data I need in order to consult with you about your cake design, organise for payment and delivery of your cake(s). It is made up of
some or all of the following:


  • Name

  • Partner’s name

  • Email address

  • Phone number

  • Dietary requirements (for training events)


When do I collect your personal data, and why do I need it?
I collect personal data from a number of sources including:


  • the website contact form,

  • wedding exhibitions, and events,

  • referrals from existing clients, other organisations and wedding planners


Your personal data is used to ensure the services I deliver are suitable and appropriate and any data collected is only used to administer and deliver those services.


  • To respond to your queries.

  • To propose, quote, design, deliver, invoice and get feedback on my wedding cake services.

  • To process any orders that you make by using my website.

  • To comply with my contractual or legal obligations to share data with law enforcement.

  • To comply with tax, legal or regulatory issues.


How is your personal data protected?

All data obtained from you is stored within my laptop computer which is password protected and passwords are regularly updated.


How long will I keep your personal data?
Whenever I collect or process your personal data, I’ll only keep it for as long as I genuinely need it, or as long as is required for regulatory legislation reasons. At the end of that period, your data will either be deleted completely or made anonymous.


Who do I share your personal data with?
I may share your data in the following circumstances:

  • to service providers and affiliates (e.g postal services, IT service administrators) who assist in the delivery of my products and services

  • to third parties if I believe that disclosure is advisable or necessary to comply with the law, to enforce or apply my terms and conditions, or to protect the rights, property or safety of myself and others.


I will never sell or rent your information to third parties.

Use of ‘cookies’
My website, like many other websites out there in the big wide internet, uses cookies. While perhaps fittingly named for a baker and cake designer, these ‘Cookies’ aren’t edible. Instead, these are small pieces of information sent to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow our website to recognise you when you visit. Such information will never identify you personally and will not be visible to me; it is purely statistical data, which does not identify any personal details whatsoever. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline
cookies if you prefer. Please be aware that this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.


Third Party Links
On occasion I may include links to third parties on The Little Berko Bakery’s website. Where I provide a link it does not mean that I endorse or approve that site’s notice towards visitor privacy. Please be mindful of this, and make sure you review the site in question’s own privacy policy before inputting any personal data.
