The Sussex Skylands, collects information on our website and uses it to better provide our visitors with the information they want to see.
Read on to find out how we collect, use, and share data, along with other information including how you can access, change or suppress your data.
What Information Do We Collect About You? How We Collect Data
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's device that contains information about the user; for example: if you have visited a specific page, clicked on a pop-up message, or filled out a form. Cookies on our site are not linked to personally identifiable information. If a site visitor rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to rejecting a cookie is that functionality may be limited in some areas of our site.
An IP address is a string of numbers that identifies a connection to the internet. We use IP addresses to look at trends, administer the site, track movement through the side, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We share aggregated information with our partners and advertisers as reports about our site. This aggregate data is not linked to any personal information that can identify an individual.
This website uses forms to collect information that you provide to us so we can interact with you at your request. For example, if you wish to receive our email newsletters, we ask for your email address so we can send those emails to you.
From time to time we request information as part of surveys or contests. Participation in these is completely voluntary so you choose to share your information with us. We may request information like name and address or age and zip code so we can verify eligibility and contact winners about prizes in contests. Survey information is used to make our site a better experience for those that visit.
Once you have shared information with us, we are careful with how we use and store that information and always give you the choice to allow us to continue to use that information.
How We use Data
Sensitive information submitted via the Web site is protected both online and offline. When a registration/order form asks for sensitive information (such as a credit card number), the information is protected with the best encryption software in the industry, SSL. We also take measures to protect information offline. Access to all collected information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task are granted access to personally identifiable information.
At the point where we ask for the information site visitors also have the ability to opt-in to receive additional information; for example when you request a visitor’s guide, we may ask if you would like to sign up for our email newsletter. Receiving additional information is completely optional and site visitors must check a box to opt-in. Site visitors who no longer wish to receive our newsletters or electronically provided promotional materials may opt-out at any time by using the unsubscribe link that is included on every communication.
