"Cuil Lodge B&B" understands that customers care about the use and storage of their personal information and data. This document sets out our policy on how we will use and protect your personal information.

The "Freetobook" database does not store or capture any personal data that isn’t strictly needed for the booking process, nor will "Cuil Lodge B&B" or "Freetobook" ever transfer any personal data to any other party if it is not part of the booking process.
Where you choose to pay us by credit or debit card we will retain details of the amount paid and some card details. This data is added to your booking record on our secure booking system and can only be accessed by authorised personnel. Card information is only kept for as long as is needed for book-keeping purposes and thereafter deleted.

This feedback may be used for marketing purposes and improving our business, but we will not disclose any of your personal information.
If you do not want information collected through the use of these technologies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that enable you to automatically decline many of these technologies or to be given the choice of declining or accepting them.
You may request that we provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity ( e.g. a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank, plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address)
You also have the right to request that we delete and destroy your personal data. Subject to providing evidence of your identity (see above) we will be happy to comply with a request to delete your data.
