Claire Sweeney is committed to protecting your privacy and maintaining the security of any personal information received from you. We strictly adhere to the data protection requirements and our policy reflects the May 2018 General Data Protection Regulation.
The purpose of this statement is to explain to you what personal information we collect and how we may use it.
What data do we collect?
When you contact us
You may voluntarily contact us with a query or to request a booking. On these occasions we use the data you provide to respond to you, and for no other purposes, unless you opt in to hear from us during the process.
Basic website usage statics
We use Google Analytics to give us a rough idea on how many people are using our website.
To reduce concerns with sending tracking data to Google, we honour your browsers "Do Not Track" preference (currently set to disallow tracking); and when allowed, we still instruct Google to use IP Anonymization.
This table explains the cookies we use, and what they are for:
csrfToken: A random value used to protect against CSRF attacks.
lastCategoryMain: The last main category viewed; used to keep the navigation highlight.
lastCategorySub: The last sub category viewed; used to keep the navigation highlight.
cookieCheck: Always set to the value 'true', to check if the browser accepts cookies.
You can set your browser not to accept cookies, however a few features of our website may not work correctly as a result.

All payment transactions are carried out over an encrypted connection (via TLS). We do this using industry standard technology. The padlock symbol, at the bottom of your browser window confirms this level of encryption. If you click on this, you will see our HTTPS certificate, meaning your data is only visible to us.
