What information do we collect about you?

We collect information while you use our website and when you get in touch or sign up to our email newsletter. The personal information we collect from you while using the site includes your IP address and information about what pages are accessed and when. If you contact us or sign up to our email newsletter, we will also collect your name, address, email address, telephone number and date of birth (optional). We may also audit your click through rate to the emails we send to you. Website usage information is collected using cookies (see below).

If you interact us with us on social media (such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) or sites such as Google or Trip Advisor, if the settings on your accounts or the privacy policies of those sites give us permission to do so, we will collect information about you. This could include your name, email address and any direct or private messages sent to us.

We have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Any personal information is kept private and securely stored until a time it is no longer needed, or until you request that we remove it from our records.

How will we use the information about you?

Our use of your personal data will always have a lawful basis, either because it is necessary to complete a booking, 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:

If you fill out a contact form on our website, we will use the details to contact you by email or telephone in relation to your enquiry.

We will never rent, lease or sell this data to other companies or individuals. We will only transfer your personal information to a third-party if required by law to do so.

If you are unhappy with how we have collected or used your data, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Access to your information

You have the right to access any data that relates to you, to delete it, and to object to its use for marketing.

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, and third-party payment processors, to fulfil your requests, and as otherwise consented to by you or as permitted by applicable law.

You can also check, correct and update your information (for instance, if you change address or email address). To do this, please contact us at marketing@staubynestates.com.

Third parties whose content appears on our website may use third-party Cookies, as detailed below. Please refer to ‘Use of Cookies’ for more information on controlling Cookies.

Use of Cookies

This website uses cookies, which are small pieces of information sent by an organisation to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow that website to recognise you when you visit. They are used to tailor your return visits and provide a more personalised experience, or to assist in monitoring website usage. They do not allow us to identify you as an individual.

It is possible to disable cookies using your browser preferences. Please note that turning off cookies may affect the functionality of our website.

Where we store your personal data

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Disclosure of your information

We may share your information with other business within the St Aubyn Estates portfolio. This includes the Godolphin Arms, Mount Haven Hotel, and St Aubyn Estates Holidays.

We may share your information with selected third parties including:

What happens if our business changes hands?

We may, from time to time, expand or reduce our business and this may involve the sale and/or the transfer of control of all or part of our business. Any personal data that you have provided will, where it is relevant to any part of our business that is being transferred, be transferred along with that part. The new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this Privacy Policy, be permitted to use that data only for the same purposes for which it was originally collected by us.

In the event that any of your data is to be transferred in such a manner, you will be contacted in advance and informed of the changes.
