Privacy and Cookies

How we use cookies and how we handle your data

There are some things that we think you should know about how we use cookies and how we handle your privacy. If you have any questions then please get in touch – info@kingsleyguesthouse.co.uk 

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of code which we use to help make the website run more effectively. We don’t have any advertising on our site so you won’t come across any of the more invasive cookies here – ours are quite small and sweet.

We use the following cookies:

  • Google Analytics. This shows us how many visitors we get to the website, where they come from (no, not your home address!), how long they stay, which pages they visited and how they got here (from another page, from an advert, from organic search etc). It also tells us things like the browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome etc) that people use. All this information helps us see how well the site works and helps us keep improving it.
  • Sharing software.  We use Add This which lets you share our content over a wider range of social networks. For this to function it places a cookie on your computer so that the software knows that you’ve visited.
  • Social Media and booking sites. We link to our Facebook page and also to accommodation booking sites – cookies from them will let the plugin know whether you are logged in to their system.

Get rid of those dang cookies!

If you want to disable cookies altogether you can do this through your browser settings however you should be aware that it can really mess up your experience on some websites (especially ones with shopping trollies).

Whilst we are careful who we link to please be aware that we have absolutely no control over the content of these sites. We wish we were that powerful but unfortunately we’re not! Sometimes content on other sites can change since we linked to them – if you spot a broken link, or find that we are linking to something that isn’t too nice we’d be eternally grateful if you let us know!
