Adnams plc (“Adnams”) operates several websites including adnams.co.uk, cellarandkitchen.adnams.co.uk, tours.adnams.co.uk, swansouthwold.co.uk, bellinnwalberswick.co.uk, thecrownsouthwold.co.uk, wangfordplough.co.uk, whitehorseblakeney.co.uk, theshipinnlevington.co.uk and harbourinnsouthwold.co.uk. It is Adnams policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Adnams collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Adnams’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, Adnams may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Adnams also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Adnams does not use such information to identify its visitors and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Adnams websites choose to interact in ways that require Adnams to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Adnams gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter at adnams.co.uk to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Adnams – by booking a room or purchasing products, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Adnams collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Adnams. Adnams does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Adnams may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Adnams may monitor the most popular products on the cellarandkicthen.adnams.co.uk site. Adnams may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Adnams does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Adnams discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Adnams behalf or to provide services available at Adnams websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Adnams websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Adnams will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Adnams discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Adnams believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Adnams, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Adnams website and have supplied your email address, Adnams may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new prodcuts, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Adnams and our products. Adnams takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
