Respecting your privacy:

We respect your privacy

You have probably seen this kind of thing frequently.  A privacy statement is designed to set out the levels of confidentiality you can expect as a client of Villalingo or as a user of this website.

We probably hate spam even more than you do (after all we receive a ton of it daily).  However, please do not worry. Absolutely the last thing we will be doing will be sending you unsolicited email. We have even taken steps to make it easier for you keep your information confidential.  If you contact us via our website contact form, you will see that we have provided a check box so that staff are reminded when you do not wish to be contacted by phone.

Our promise to you is that we will only contact you if you have a property listed with us or if you have made a specific request for information.  We do not operate a mailing list and if we decide to do so at a later date, you will be asked if you wish to receive this information.

We will never, ever supply any of your information to a third party unless we are legally required to do so.  There are matters such as contractual information where we will request specific information in order to proceed either a sale or a purchase.  In these cases information held on file will be kept confidential and when the file is closed the information removed after a period of time.

 

This website does monitor traffic through the site for marketing purposes, but no information is collected and stored that can later be used to reveal your identity.  The exception being in cases of abuse or malicious use of the website.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are simple text files put on your computer by websites when you visit them.  They can contain a variety of information.  The cookies used by the designers of this website cannot be used to reveal your identity.

However, if you use social media such as Facebook or Twitter, they may well be collecting this type of information.  We do use social media feeds, and if you are concerned about this or the collection of data by companies such as Google, through Google Analytics, there are steps that you can take to prevent these cookies being placed.  Consult your browser instructions for tools to block or delete cookies.

If you wish to block cookies set by this website, you will find that parts of this site and others do not work as well.

As our cookies are set automatically, you must not use this website if you do not allow cookies.

The well meaning EU Privacy Directive, which prompted all this additional bureaucracy came into effect on the 26th May 2012. As a result all websites that use cookies must request your consent.  This actually covers the majority of websites, although not all are willing to comply with EU and UK law in this regard.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Enjoy the rest of your day and that search for a special place in the sun!
