Privacy Policy

At Villa Pia, we value and respect your privacy. We pride ourselves on developing a relationship of trust and intimacy with our customers. Thus, we do everything to ensure any personal data of yours that we have on file (e.g. name, date of birth, address, email address, telephone number etc) is held confidentially and securely at all times.

The nature of our business means that, from time to time, we’ll require some personal details from our customers and website users.

In line with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation, we have updated our privacy policy to assure you of the following:

– We take full responsibility for the information we hold about you
– We will protect your privacy at all times
– We will never sell, rent or lease your personal information

Whether you’ve supplied your personal details online, by phone or text, by email or in a letter, we will never use them without any lawful reason. We’ll use your details only for the purposes for which they were initially requested, and as fully explained in this Privacy Notice.


Privacy Policy (Updated May 24, 2018)

We observe the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation. This means that we collect, process and use as little personal data as possible.

We collect, process and use your personal data only when necessary e.g. for substantiating, implementing or terminating a contractual customer relationship. Where relevant, we will get your prior consent before collecting, processing or using any personal data, and it will only be used for the purpose and to the extent to which you have given consent.


We will only keep you updated about our services and latest news if you have opted in to hear from us. Your email address is held securely by Villa Pia and managed using our email service provider, Mail Chimp. Please read Mail Chimp’s privacy policy HERE. Always know that you are in control of your data and can opt out from receiving emails from us at any time. Every newsletter we send you will contain a prominent link allowing you to unsubscribe from our newsletter, or to update your preferences.
