Privacy and Security

Site Security

All of the Gite Colombe de Bois website is sent to you over an encrypted SSL connection. This is indicated by a padlock next to the web-address in your browser or by the URL starting with ‘https’ instead of ‘http’. All information sent to our website by you is also protected in the same way.


We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998). We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your booking and second, to provide you with the best possible service.

The type of information that Gite Colombe de Bois will collect about you will come from the booking form and the contact-us form that you may complete on our website, and information that you provide in subsequent emails. It may include:

  • your name
  • address
  • phone number
  • email address
  • your IP address

We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent. The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by contacting us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly. The personal information that we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy and the law.

If we intend to transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) we will always obtain your consent first.


We use technology to enable on-line reservations & to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to our site. This includes using cookies which would be stored by your browser. You can usually modify your browser to prevent this happening, although if you do this you will not be able to use the on-line booking procedure. The information collected in this way can be used to identify you unless you modify your browser settings. Gite Colombe de Bois does not share this data with anyone.

In addition to our own technologies, we also measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

You can learn about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish. Alternatively you should disable third-party cookies in your browser.


Gite Colombe de Bois will never send you unsolicited email or other correspondence. Only those people who specifically opt in to our mailing list will receive mailings and other information that we feel may be of interest.

You may reply to any newsletters or promotional emails with the subject ‘UNSUBSCRIBE’ and we will remove you from our mailing list.

Gite Colombe de Bois does not share your email address with anyone else.
