Concerned about electronic harvesting of personal information?
Websites that require you to sign up with personal information collect and use that information according to their own privacy statements. We DO NOT collect personal information by this means and by continuing to use this website you are free of that fear. This web site does however contain links to other web sites. They are provided for your convenience, but we do not review, control, or monitor the privacy practices of web sites operated by others. We are not responsible for the performance of web sites operated by others or for your dealings with them. Therefore, whenever you leave this site we recommend that you review each web site's privacy practices and draw your own conclusions regarding their adequacy.

In order to transfer information small lines of text called “cookies” are in common use throughout the internet and the law requires that you are given the opportunity to block or delete them before you enter a website.
When you use a browser to search the internet and you land on a website an introductory cookie is sent to and set by your browser to identify your computer by its internet address and to enable your search. It is not a program but it is stored on your computer's hard drive. It cannot access the hard drive, so it cannot read other information saved on the hard drive, or get your personal information (e-mail address etc). Other cookies follow if on other sites you want to login with personal information to purchase something, go on a mailing list or provide information to the authorities etc.
Cookies only contain and transfer to the server as much information as you disclose to the web site – so if you are only searching a site no personal information is transferred by this means. Cookies are not attached to the Booking and Contact Us forms which are sent as attachments to emails.
