Terms & Privacy Policy

Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on The Blacksmith's Arms website and how it affects you.

  • We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
  • Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can't control them but we don't believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
  • If you contact us or engage with us via email or social media, we take great care to keep your information safe and we'll never share it with others without your express permission.
  • We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website such as the 'Like' and 'Tweet' buttons. To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you're logged in; for example Facebook use this to say 'x of your friends like this'. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it. Social networks therefore could know that you're viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn't to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

We only respond to emails that are sent to us. These emails are not stored online and are solely used for the purpose of the enquiry/issue. We do not pass on your details to any third party.

Data finding
The Blacksmith's Arms makes use of various 3rd party APIs to collect information about websites in Nibbler and Sitebeam reports. For example we use the Google Maps API to gather local presence information (see Google Map's privacy policy).

Updates to this policy
We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version. We may also notify you of changes to our privacy policy by social media.

Any questions?
If you have any questions about this privacy policy or your personal data, please contact us.
