Privacy Statement
Log files are maintained and can be analysed for all requests for files on this website’s web server. Log files do not capture personal information but do capture the user’s IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers.

Analysis of these log files may be used to monitor website usage. These analyses may be made available to The Dove Inn staff to allow them to measure, for example, overall popularity of the site and typical user paths through the site.

Except as stated already, The Dove Inn will make no attempt to identify individual users. You should be aware, however, that access to web pages will generally create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These entities may be in a position to identify the client computer equipment used to access a page. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond the responsibility or control of The Dove Inn.

The Dove Inn will make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to systems is being attempted. In the case of all users, The Dove Inn reserves the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of The Dove Inn web services.

As a condition of use of this site, all users must give permission for The Dove Inn to use its access logs to attempt to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access.

All log file information collected by The Dove Inn is kept secure and no access to raw log files is given to any third party.
