Privacy Policy

Windmill Barn is committed to ensuring the privacy of its customers. This Privacy Policy explains how we use your personal information. This policy may change occasionally so please check this statement from time to time.

What information Windmill Barn collects

We collect personal information from you through forms that you may complete, as well as any e-mails that you send us.

Our website keeps track of usage data, such as the source address that the page request is coming from (i.e. your IP address, domain name), date and time of the page request, the referring website (if any) and other parameters in the URL (e.g. search criteria).

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

What is in a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in a shopping basket.

What cookies does this website use?

The content management system (WordPress) only uses session cookies. A session cookie only lasts for the duration of users using the website. A web browser normally deletes session cookies when it quits.

This website also uses one third-party cookie (Google Analytics) to measure use of the website including number of visitors, how frequently pages are viewed, and the city and country of origin of users. This helps to determine what is popular and can influence future content and development. The information collected will include IP Address, pages visited, browser type and operating system. The data can not be used to identify any user personally.

What Windmill Barn does with your personal information

We also use this information to better understand website usage and audience attendance so we know what areas of our website and what activities and events customers prefer. Website data is stored in log files and is used for aggregated and statistical reporting but cannot be attributed to you as an individual.

We may use your personal information to keep you informed about Windmill Barn news and may contact you from time to time about these. If you have given us permission to do this, we may use your information to send you email bulletins and other email alerts.
