Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how The Blue Ball Inn uses and protects any information that you give us when contacting us via telephone or post, or email from this website.

Your details

Your name (so we know what to call you) and your email address (so we know how to contact you) are required when you contact us via email.
In these days of serial spammers and email harvesters we need to protect our inbox from the King of Burkina Faso, fraudsters posing as banks and people promising us an appendage big enough to poke a rhino's eye out so precautions have been taken.
If you don't need a reply you can make a name up. You can make an address up too, but make sure it roughly resembles a real one or our system just won't let it through. And beware of using silly words (eg; [email protected]) because they won't get past our "gobble-de-gook" filters.

How we use your info

Obvious reply reasons aside, The Blue Ball Inn may occasionally send you emails to announce upcoming events, latest news and sensational not-to-be missed discounts. Rest assured, we will never sell, distribute or lease your details to a third party for any reason (unless we are required by law to do so) and have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We will only contact you via telephone with booking queries and only by mail if you ask us to.

About cookies

A cookie is a small text file which is stored by a web browser, for example, to remember which pages you have visited so future visits load faster. We're obliged by law to tell you that we use cookies for our hit counters, analytics, and database stuff too—the things that tell us what our visitors are looking for—but there's nothing sinister going on.
A cookie cannot generate viruses or malware, and in no way gives us access to your computer or any personally identifiable information about you. You can easily modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer and you won't even notice. By continuing to browse the site you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

Links to other websites

Our site contains links to other websites which may be of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site we have no control over the destination website or its content. They were perfectly safe the last time we checked but we cannot be held responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites as they are not governed by our privacy policy. They have to write their own.
