Privacy Policy Statement:

If you request a brochure or use this site to send an email to a property owner, you become a “customer” and your details are used to respond to your request. The details supplied by you are also added to Premier Cottages Ltd’s customer database and will be used for marketing purposes. You always have the right to correct or remove your details.  All of our emails contain an Unsubscribe link at the bottom, which is the easiest and quickest way to remove yourself from our database.  You can unsbuscribe from the brochure at any time by using the "Unsubscribe from Brochure" link on our website footer.  Alternatively you can email us and give us the contact details you would like removed.

Premier Cottages will not sell your details to other companies and will only disclose them to selected suppliers we engage to process data or provide mailing, marketing or research services on our behalf, or with property owners in the case of emails sent via the site to those property owners.

If you do not supply us with personal details by for example requesting a brochure or using the site to send an email to a property owner, you are using our site anonymously as a visitor. Premier Cottages Ltd is not interested in the identity of visitors to our site. However, Premier Cottages Ltd is interested in information that tells us about the use of our site, such as: how many visitors we get, from which countries the site visited, which pages are visited, and which are the busy times. We also keep up to date with the type of browser people use when visiting our site so we can change this site to meet the needs of visitors’ hardware and software
