What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Your contact information
We obtain your contact information when you email us via our Contact Form on the Contact page, or voluntarily send it to us by other means (such as over the phone or by mail). Any information you provide to us, including your contact details, is only used for the purposes of answering your query. We keep your contact information for a short period after your booking or enquiry for administrative purposes, but it is not kept on file or used to contact you for marketing purposes. We do not pass on your information to third parties unless required to by law.
How we protect your data
We take appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that we keep your information secure, accurate and up to date, and that we only keep it as long as is reasonable and necessary.
Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal information, the transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure. We do our best to protect personal information, but we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our website, so any transmission is at the user's own risk.
We use Statcounter to track visitor data (including data such as pages visited, time spent, approximate visitor location). This is not personally identifiable.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data
