The legal bit…
Bear with us – we have to tell you the reason for collecting your information – and this is called the legal basis for processing.
Where you provide information in the course of a booking we process your data under Contract, i.e. your data is necessary to fulfil the service you are paying for.If you are an existing customer, any additional contact, i.e. giving you the opportunity to book for next season earlier than people who are not existing customers, telling you about events and offers, is managed under legitimate interest.Following up on a provisional booking or enquiry is managed under legitimate interestSending you marketing information such as offers and events as part of our regular newsletter is managed under consent.
Under the terms of current data protection legislation, we will always make it as easy as possible for you to opt out of unwanted processing, providing it does not restrict our ability to provide you with the service you have requested.
From time to time we may use some elements of the data you supply to target the messages we send you. For example, we may use the details of the time of year you have previously used our accommodation to send you details of specific events.
None of this information is collated by wholly automated means and the rights and freedoms of the data subject are safeguarded by suitable measures.
How long do you hold on to my data?
Because we collect data for a wide range of purposes, we do not have a singularly defined retention period. For each individual product and service we define a carefully assessed timeframe within which we retain your data. For example, we are obliged by legislation to keep details of any financial transactions for seven years.
After this, data is managed to ensure that it is either erased from our system, minimised and retained for legal reasons or pseudonymised and retained on a global suppression list to ensure that you do not receive unwanted messaging from us.
The minimum information we need from you book accommodation is your name, and address, landline telephone number and email address. We will ask you more questions for different services, including marketing emails. Unless we say otherwise, you must answer all the booking questions.
We will process data collected for the purpose of fulfilling your booking on the basis of Contract to deliver the service you have requested. We will also, on the basis of legitimate interest, contact you the following year to give you an opportunity to book accommodation at the earliest possible opportunity. You always have a choice and can opt out of processing on this basis at any time by contacting our Database Manager by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01305268874
We do not sell your data at any time.
Use of children’s data
We collect a very small amount of personal information (names and age) about children under the age of 16 in the context of an accommodation booking for safeguarding purposes.
If you would like access to, or a copy of, the personal information we hold about you; would like to request a correction; want to restrict how it is used; want to ask us to remove your data from our databases; or have any questions about how we may use it; please contact the by email email@example.com or telephone 01305 268874
Requests will be handled without undue delay, and in the case of a request to rectify or gain access your information will be responded to within the time periods specified by the ICO.

We will not share your personal information with others for marketing purposes unless you have given us your permission. If we have your permission, we will share your information only with other organisations we have chosen carefully.
We can access and release personal information to keep to relevant laws and government requests, to operate our systems properly and to protect both us and our users.
