Information we may collect from our web site
We collect information about visitors to our site in three main ways:
1. Requests you make to contact us
We have a Contact Us page on the site enabling visitors to contact us to request information. When you do that, we ask for your name, email address and any message you want to provide. These details are forwarded to our marketing team who will then contact you to respond as you have requested. We store those contact details in our local PCs only for as long as is necessary to process your queries.
None of those details are stored by the web site or our website provider.
2. Requests to subscribe to our mailing list
On most of our web site pages we provide you with an option to subscribe to our mailing list. This is an opt-in form where you provide your name and email address and then complete two constructive opt-in steps: you must tick a box to say you wish to receive updates about services or products, news, events and any other relevant information from Castle Inn via e-mail, and you must then click the SUBSCRIBE button to submit your request.
The details you enter are forwarded to our marketing team who then add you to the mailing list as per your request. None of those details are stored by the web site or our web site provider.
You will then receive our updates by email. Those mailings do not go through our web site. At any time, and in each mailing, you have the option to alter or cancel your subscription to the list.
You may refuse any future marketing communication from us at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Visitor statistics
When someone visits our web site we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out how many visitors we get to our site and how they navigate around it, to help us improve the information and display options. This information does not identify you personally and is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We use it to help us understand which pages are visited most frequently and how we might improve our site for future visitors.
We monitor any emails sent to us, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software in order to protect the security of our data and the integrity of our systems.
All Castle Inn Hotel email accounts are password protected, with up-to-date security encryption.
Our email server is hosted and backed up externally in secure encrypted format, off-site.

Should you wish to obtain a copy of the personal data that we hold on you, please send an email to the following address: email@example.com.

If we do hold information about you, you can ask us to correct any mistakes by contacting us by email, post or phone. As explained earlier, you can remove yourself from our mailing lists or customer lists at any time by mailing us at; firstname.lastname@example.org

We aim to resolve any complaint within 10 working days, but we will communicate with you throughout our investigation to let you know progress and any queries.
