Privacy Policy

Summary
Bentons Guest House takes your online privacy seriously. You may visit this site anonymously as often as you like without providing any personally identifying information (such as your name, address or e-mail address). We do not collect personally identifying information from you except when you specifically provide it, and we protect the information we receive. If you ask to be added to a newsletter or other subscription list, we will use a cookie to keep track of your requests so that you can easily check and revise your subscriptions. We also use cookies to identify your browser so that we can provide the best link to our site. We never share your e-mail address with third parties.

The Information You Provide
As you explore our website, you will come across places in which we ask you to provide us voluntarily with information about yourself. At the booking form, we request your e-mail address, your name and phone number, so that we can contact you. In other instances we are seeking only your e-mail address so that we can send you the specific information that you request, such as a newsletter or online subscription.

Removing Your E-mail Address
If you have previously provided us with your e-mail address and later decide that you do not want us to have it, please follow the instructions to unsubscribe contained at the end of your e-mail message from us. We will try to accommodate your request, but cannot promise that it will happen immediately.

Cookies
Cookies are electronic tags that most major websites place on your computer in the process of sending your computer a file, such as a Web page. In essence, a cookie is a unique bit of computer code that is placed on your computer the first time you visit our site. It tells us simply when a computer that has previously visited our site returns, and it identifies your computer's browser and operating system to help us make the best connection. In no event does the cookie we place on your computer tell us anything about your visits to other websites or your use of the Internet in any other way.

If you would prefer not to receive any cookies, most browsers can be set to refuse cookies or to alert you when one is being sent. It is possible, however, that some portions of this site may not function properly if the cookies are disabled.

Online Tools
Google AdWords™ conversion tracking. Some of our pages contain javascript conversion tracking code snippet designed to show us the interest level of traffic driven to our site by AdWords click-throughs.
We use Google Analytics to track referrals from Google to our site in order to improve our site. Many pages on the site have the code necessary for this to work. Google Analytics uses a javascript tool.

Links to Other Sites
Our site contains links to other sites that are not under our control, even though they may use the Benton Guest House name or logo on their site through an agreement with us. Such other sites do not necessarily follow our privacy policies, and may place their own cookies on your computer. This practice is standard on the Web, and we do not control cookies placed on your computer by third parties whose advertising or links appear on our site.

Security of Private Information
We would like to be able to tell you that the information you provide us is absolutely safe. Unfortunately, several well-publicized instances of computer security breaches make it impossible for anyone to be so confident. The most we can tell you is that we take reasonable steps to protect the information you provide us from theft, alteration or unauthorized inspection. In addition, in rare instances, we will disclose private information to necessary parties to protect our site or other visitors.
