Advertising and marketing
You could see our adverts in lots of different places. If you see one of our adverts on a website and in social media, it may not be directed specifically at you and may simply be there because we’ve bid for the space.
You may choose to opt in to receive our newsletter on our website. We may also be able to send you relevant direct marketing about our hotel, services and events unless you choose to opt out when making a booking with us, visiting our hotel.
Here are some examples of our direct marketing activities which may be directed specifically at you:
• our newsletter via email;
• invitations and promotions by post, to tell you about special events at our hotel; and/or
• phone calls, to tell you something that might be relevant to you or your business.
We also work with partners to try and promote the reach of our adverts, using analytics and retargeting. To make sure the adverts you see on websites and social media are relevant, we use Tracking Data to see what you’ve looked at. Tracking Data, and in particular cookies, help us to do this by telling us which adverts will be most relevant to you and potential new guests on website and social media. The cookies used for this purpose are often placed on our website by specialist organizations – and this is also why when you’ve been on our website, you might see content from our website again. This includes retargeting.
Cookies can also tell us if you’ve seen a specific advert, and how long it’s been since you have seen it. This is helpful, because it means we can control the effectiveness of our adverts and control the number of times people might be shown our adverts. Cookies also help us understand if you’ve opened a marketing email because we don’t want to send you things you won’t find interesting.
Almost all the cookies that relate to advertising are part of third party online advertising networks. We do not control cookies which are set by advertising networks.
