    add_action( 'woocommerce_product_query', 'mwd_hwcosp_remove_product_in_cat' );

        //hwcosp_global is the databse row entry
        $opt_terms = get_option('hwcosp_global');

        // Processes our users data to the way we want it from above
        $data = mwd_hwcosp_comma_separated_to_array($opt_terms);
