ABOUT THIS POLICY
Inverkip Hotel is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible way. This policy outlines how we aim to achieve this and covers the information we may collect when you:
- use our website (http://shop.inverkip.co.uk/)
- enter details in order to complete a purchase
DEFINITION OF PERSONAL DATA
‘Personal Data’ refers to any data which relates to an identifiable person who can be directly/indirectly identified from that data. In this case, it means personal data that you give to us via our website.
By providing your personal data, you agree that we can use your personal data in accordance with this policy. We collect, use and retain Personal Data about you only to the extent that is reasonably required in order for us to conduct our business effectively.
Please take you time to read it and ensure that you understand this policy in its entirety.
HOW DO YOU GET MY CONSENT?
When you provide us with personal information, we assume that you understand that your data must be collected to process your request, thereby you are giving consent. We will use your data for processing purposes only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will ask you directly for your expressed consent via a form checkbox.
How Do We Collect Information From You?
WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM YOU:
- when you make a purchase on our site
Information gathered from the above is strictly confidential to Inverkip Hotel and will not be shared to third parties.
WHAT TYPE OF INFORMATION IS COLLECTED FROM YOU?
You will be asked to submit personal information about yourself when you fill in our contact form. We will collect this information so we can fulfil your request as required.
We typically collect all or some of the following information:
- e-mail address
- business name and address
- telephone number
- marketing preferences (whether you opt-in or opt-out)
WHEN YOU ACCESS OUR WEBSITE, INVERKIP HOTEL COLLECTS:
- a nugatory amount of data, which is automatically collected by our web server to access log records. Access log records collect and store information based on IP addresses and access request date/time. We host our website on Namesco servers. Namesco is fully compliant with Data Protection laws, although the basic information they store is not user-specific and cannot be used to identify an individual. We have never had reason to access these logs as we use Google Analytics performance cookies to display more advanced access and usage data in a user-friendly dashboard which we (and our web agency) can more easily interpret.
We use Google Analytics cookies to gather and display information relating to
- device type (e.g. mobile, computer, tablet)
- operating system
- browser type
- browser information (e.g., type, language, version)
- domain names
- access times and dates
- location (country + city/town)
- referring website addresses
All data gathered, processed and displayed by Google Analytics cookies is randomised and can never by traced to an individual.
HOW IS YOUR INFORMATION USED?
Our use of your personal data will always have a lawful basis, either because you have consented to our use of your personal data (e.g. by subscribing to emails), or because it is in our legitimate interests.
We require the information outlined in the previous section to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
- Process enquiries
- Maintain accurate records
- Send you service emails (order confirmation/receipts)
- Improve our product and service offering
- Process orders
- Send marketing materials including business updates and online voucher codes
WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION?
We will not sell, distribute, or lease your personal information to third parties. Any personal information we request from you will be safeguarded under current legislation.
We will only share your information with companies if necessary to deliver services on our behalf. These service providers are limited to Names.co.uk to host our website and Ninja Forms to collect, process and store form data. We do not host any further third party website content such as imagery hosted on CDNs or embedded social or video content which could use their own cookies to gather data about you.
Our website agency has access to our Google Analytics Dashboard, but no other data.
HOW AND WHERE DO WE STORE DATA?
When you send an email to the email address displayed on our website, we collect your email address and any other information you provide in that email (such as your name, telephone number and the information contained in any signature block in your email).

USE OF ‘COOKIES’
