In order to use some of the services provided on our Web site you may be asked to submit personal information about yourself (such as your name, address, email address etc). Such services include requesting a holiday cottage brochure or owner’s guide, reserving / booking your holiday cottage and registering for our newsletter.
Information you provide will only be made available to those involved in supplying your holiday. This includes our Booking Office staff and the Owner or Housekeeper of your chosen property. We will never supply your information to anyone else without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged by law to disclose it.
Personal information you provide in registering for a service will only be used by Aspects Holidays in the provision of that service or to inform you about other services that may be of interest. In all email communication we will provide the option to unsubscribe. We will normally hold your personal information on our systems until such time as we deem it no longer commercially viable. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Access to your data is restricted to Aspects authorised personnel and our servers are housed in a secure environment. Our internal computer network is protected by a firewall and backups are stored in a safe.
