Personal data is not disclosed outside the business providing holiday cottage accommodation processes without the consent of the data subjects (i.e. those to whom the data belongs).

Log files are maintained and analysed of all requests for files on this website's web servers. Log files do not capture personal information but do capture the user's IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers. Aggregated analysis of these log files is used to monitor website usage. You should be aware, however, that access to web pages will generally create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These entities may be in a position to identify the client computer equipment used to access a page. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond the responsibility or control of ourselves. We will make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to systems is being attempted. In the case of all users, we reserves the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of our web services. As a condition of use of this site, all users must give permission for us to use its access logs to attempt to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access. All log file information collected by us is kept secure and no access to raw log files is given to any third party.
This website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission.
To comply with the Data Protection Act, we have a duty to tell you how we store the information we collect and how it is used. No services on this website require us to collect personal information from you. Any information you do submit will be stored securely and will never be passed on or sold to any third party.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (the Supervisory Authority for Data Protection) on 0303 123 1113.
