We take your privacy seriously
We take your privacy seriously, and this page is just to let you know how we use and protect any information you give us.
If we ask you for any information that personally identifies you then it is entirely up to you whether you give us this information, and if you do we will look after it as set out below.
We may alter this policy from time to time, but the most up to date version will always be available on the web site. It was last updated on 28th July 2011.
Unless you make a ferry booking, contact us, submit a site review, join our Twitter feed or Facebook page, we do not collect any information about you, other than your IP address (in common with all web sites). Cookies are used to record visits and to track purchases you may make either on this site or where we have an affiliate agreement with the supplier. Bookings made on this web site collect information required to process and execute the booking.
Where you offer it to us, we may collect or have access to information such as:
- Your name
- Your email address
- For ferry bookings, name of passenger and route travelled
- Your twitter username (where you follow us on Twitter – please do!)
- Your Facebook username (where you become a fan on Facebook – again, please do!)
- Your review of a ferry trip
This information is used for the following purposes:
- To pay us a commission for any bookings we generate
- To improve our service
- To communicate offers and services you may be interested in (you can opt out at any time)
A cookie is a small file which your web browser places on your computer’s hard drive (or phone, iPad etc). It helps us analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site – it can for example allow a web site to customise itself to your needs (by remembering your site preferences for instance).
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. This will prevent you from taking full advantage of this and many other websites.
Links to other web sites
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
Some of the links from this web site are affiliate links. That means that if you visit another site from here via an affiliate link and then make a purchase, we will receive some commission from the retailer. We would like to thank you in advance for this!
What we do with personal information you give us
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen.
Phew, all done!
