We will take all reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. We will store your personal information you provide via the website on a secure server. Should your contact with us develop into a booking then details will be saved and protected by encryption technology. We will not use your contact details for direct marketing purposes to you unless you request it by signing to our newsletter through the website.
You can ask us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you, for knowledge and accuracy. We would require proof of identity. You can also ask us to delete your personal information.
