This Privacy Policy applies to all the business activity of the partnership Jonathan AW Bridge & Denise M Bridge, whether under our own names jointly, or one or more of our trading names, including The Big Garden, The Hebridean Woolshed, Uist Self-Catering Cottages, Carrick – The Blue House, or Eight Askernish, or related similar names (including, for example, domain names).
We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of website visitors and customers.
This policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
  • information about any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our goods or services;
  • information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us and/or subscribing to our website services and/or email notifications

 

Using your personal data

Personal data submitted by you on this website (or collected by us when you make card payment by phone or using a payment terminal at our premises) will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy.

In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may (if you are or were a paying customer) occasional emails (no more than four in any 12 month period) with news about the goods or services we provide. You can opt out of such emails by means of the unsubscribe function included in every such email.
We will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for any purpose.

Other disclosures

In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may disclose information about you:

  • to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
  • in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
  • in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk); and except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

 

Security of your personal data

We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.  We may reasonably rely on the security arrangements and assurances of data processors, including (but not limited to) Bookalet, Worldpay and PayPal.

Policy amendments

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time by posting a new version on our website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes.

Third party websites

Our websites may contain links to other websites, the content, privacy policies, and privacy practices of which we have no responsibility for.

Use of Cookies

Cookies are small files that are often created when you visit a website, and which are stored in the cookie directory of your computer. Whilst our own website does not use cookies, those of our data processors do use cookies as temporary recepticles for the data you enter online, and by that means to ensure the smooth processing of your transaction, and – at the conclusion of the transaction – to hand over the information to the databases operated on our behalf by our data processors.

What happens to the cookies after completion of the transaction depends on the way the internet browser or app that you have used is configured – and lies entirely outwith our control.

Linking to other websites

Our websites contain links to other websites. Except in connection with our data processors, no personal or other information entered by you is passed to any other website.

Right to request information

You have a statutory right to request a copy of any of your personal data held by us in order to check its accuracy.  If you wish to do this, please contact us giving us your full name, postal address (including postcode), email address (and, ideally, a phone number too).
