Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to enable you to visit other websites of interest easily. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website so if you’re unsure, have a look at their privacy policy on their website.

Cookies
Cookies are small text files containing an anonymous unique identifier, accessible only by the website that placed it there (and not by any other sites) which we may place on your computer when you visit certain parts of this website. We use cookies to allow us to identify recurring visitors and to analyse their browsing habits within the website.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Google Analytics
Simply Cheshire Events uses Google Analytics to track the performance of its website. This collects non-personalised data.

Will the data be shared with any other third parties?
We do not share any data with any other third parties. With your consent, we may share your contact details with suppliers connected and approved by you for your event. This would be basic contact information only.

How long we retain your data
We keep customer records for twelve months after the event has finished and the final invoice is settled.

What rights you have over your data
At any time, you can request to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
