Policies and Procedures
After we have securely transmitted details of your order, we will retain your name, address, telephone number and email address information for 1 year in order that we can stay in touch with you with regards to your booking. Our telephone system will retain your name and telephone number indefinitely. You also have the right to request that we delete any or all personal data Wyreside Lakes holds about you at any time. We do not share your data with any organisations outside of Wyreside lakes and your data will only be used for the purposes we have discussed either by telephone or email. You also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. This wouldn’t affect any use of your data carried out up until that point, but would have immediate effect from when we receive your request. You can withdraw your consent by contacting us by phone or e-mail, or by writing to us – our full address can be found on our website at www.wyresidelakes.co.uk. If you do not give us permission to use your data, unfortunately we will be unable to fulfil your order without your permission and we will not be able to continue with any bookings.
