Tor View Shepherds Huts
Privacy Policy

We are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors who visit our website and make a booking with Tor View Shepherds Huts.

In particular, we want you to know that we do not sell, rent or trade your contact details with other companies and businesses for their marketing purposes. We just don’t do that sort of thing. Never have. Never will.

As you know, we base our business on providing the best “get away from it all” experience we possibly can… but, just in case you wonder what information we do keep – it’s the minimum necessary for us to process your booking and keep in contact with you after your stay (you’ll be amazed at how many people leave stuff behind in the huts).

In our Privacy Policy, we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

The next stuff is a bit boring, but it’s out legal obligation to share this with you… you might want to grab a coffee first?
