Privacy Policy

Thank you for entrusting The Bell Inn with your contact and personal information. Holding onto your personal information is a serious responsibility and we want you to know that we’re handling it properly and lawfully. This privacy statement explains when and why we collect personal information about individuals, how this information is used, the conditions under which it may be disclosed to others and how it is kept secure. We are committed to fully comply with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation brought into effect on 25th May 2018.


The Bell Inn is committed to protecting the privacy of our website visitors. This Privacy Policy seeks to help you understand how we collect and process information about you when you visit our website, and how we use such information. For the purposes of EU data protection laws, The Bell Inn is the data controller (i.e. the company responsible for, and which controls the processing of, your personal information).

This Privacy Policy applies when you visit this website. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to this website and not to any other website that may be linked to it. We do not control the privacy policies or practices of others. We encourage you to ask questions and read the privacy policies of other websites before you disclose any personal information to them.

If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, you can email us at or write to us at The Bell Inn, Church Street, Eckington, Pershore, Worcestershire, WR10 3AN.

How We Collect, Use, Share and Protect Your Personal Information

We do not collect any personal information from you through our website except as described below. Personal information is any information that personally identifies you or from which you are identifiable such as your name, postal address, email address, or credit card information.

Website Visits: In general, we automatically gather certain technical information from our website visitors through our automatic data collection tools, including server logs, which may collect certain standard information that your browser sends to the website such as the number and frequency of your visits. This information may include the URL of the last and next website you visit, your browser and operating system, your IP address, how long you spend on our website and what pages you view here. We may use this information on an aggregate basis to understand better how our visitors use our website, research our visitors’ demographics, interests, and behaviour, improve our website, provide visitors with customised services and information, and for other similar purposes.

We do not control any cookies, web beacons or other similar devices that may be placed on our website by third parties.

Other: We will collect any other personal information from you if you voluntarily provide it through our website—such as by providing your email address and other personal information to receive further information about us—and will use such personal information for the purpose of processing and responding to your enquiries and requests, and to improve our website and offerings. You are under no obligation to provide any such information. However, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services.

The provision of personal information by you may be necessary where we have a legitimate interest to carry out the following purposes: (i) to contact you and respond to your requests and enquiries; (ii) for business administration, including statistical analysis; (iii) to personalise your visit to the website and to assist you while you use the website; (iv) to improve the website by helping us understand who uses the website; and (v) to comply with applicable laws, regulations or codes of practice.

We may use service providers to facilitate our services and perform functions on our behalf, such as sending postal mail and email, and providing technical, analytical and hosting functions for our website. We may also share your personal information with affiliates of The Bell Inn and with advisers of The Bell Inn. These companies and individuals may have access to your personal information we collect through our website, as permitted by law and as needed to perform their functions in compliance with the privacy practices and policies of The Bell Inn, but may not use it for any other purpose. We require that these companies and individuals otherwise keep this information confidential. The Bell Inn reserves the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from users or that we otherwise collect in connection with the website including, but without limitation to, third parties in the event of any liquidation or dissolution, or a sale or transfer of assets or of any portion of our business. We will not otherwise share your personal information, except as required by law, requested by governmental entity or law enforcement authority, court order or discovery request, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law (including relating to intellectual property, fraud, contracts and privacy) or may expose us to liability. We can (and if you authorise us to) disclose any of your information in such circumstances.

The security of your information is important to us. We employ several different technical, administrative and physical security measures to protect any personal information you provide through our website from unauthorised access or use. You should be aware however that “perfect security” does not exist on the internet and there is always the risk that unauthorised persons may access or use your personal information. You use our website and send us such information at your own risk. The Bell Inn retains your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which such personal information was collected. In the event of you not wishing to pursue your enquiry or website submission with The Bell Inn your personal information is retained for a period of five years and in compliance with applicable laws.
