This sets out how Llainfran Holidays uses and protects personal information that you give us when making a booking online, over the phone or in person.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Filling out forms
We may collect information you provide when you fill out forms on our website, such as signing up to our newsletter, filling in our contact form, registering as a user on our website or requesting information about our holidays.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of the correspondence.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Contact & Communication
Users contacting our website and/or its owners do so at their own discretion and provide any such personal details requested at their own risk. Every effort has been made to ensure a safe and secure form to email submission process but advise users using such form to email processes that they do so at their own risk.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We have legal obligations to keep your personal data supplied safe. We will tell you how we will use your information and we will collect it fairly.
Your booking information is held securely on our third party, GDPR compliant booking system. The owners of the booking system have security in place to ensure data is kept safe at all times.
Information you provide to us will not be shared with third parties without your knowledge. We use the information to provide holiday services to you under our contractual obligation and to provide you with the best possible service. We may also use it to improve our products and services.
Limited information about your booking will be shared with our management team and our booking partners, where necessary.
If you have consented to receive email marketing communications from us we will periodically send you emails which include offers, new products and holiday inspiration ideas that we think will be of interest to you. You are welcome to unsubscribe from our email communications by using the unsubscribe button at the bottom of each email or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will always ask for your explicit permission to send you direct marketing communications.
Payment transactions are carried out through independent third parties and governed by third party terms and conditions. We do not store or process credit card details. Llainfran Holidays uses Freetobook for our online bookings and Worldpay for telephone and card payments.
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You have the right to have all your information deleted from our systems.
You have the right to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you.
You have the right to change any incorrect information we hold about you.
You have the right to ask us to stop processing information about you.
