Information about us
The website at www.familybreakfinder.co.uk is a site operated by Strictly Media Limited, to which the words “we”, “us” and “our” refer.
We are registered in England and Wales under company number 4958232. The address of our registered office is Figtree House, 24 St Mary’s Terrace, Hastings, East Sussex, TN34 3LS, United Kingdom.

FamilyBreakFinder, which is operated by Strictly Media Limited, has created this privacy statement in order to show its commitment to privacy. It is important for you to understand what information we collect about you during your visit and what we do with that information.
Personal Information Collection and Use
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you, except when you provide it to us. For example, if you submit a question to us, sign up for our weekly newsletters or a sweepstakes on familybreakfinder.co.uk, you may be asked to provide certain information such as your contact information (name, email address, mailing address, etc.).
We may retain other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include, without limitation, customer support and fulfillment companies (e.g., companies that coordinate mailings). Such third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose.
In addition, we may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal proceeding or governmental request.
We do not want you to receive unwanted email from us. Every email we send includes an unsubscribe link enabling you to opt out of further correspondence. If you sign-up to our email newsletters we do not sell, exchange or give your email address to a third party, though we do run content promotions with partners where we work collaboratively on email content.
Email addresses are collected via the FamilyBreakFinder website. Users have to opt-in to receive the FamilyBreakFinder newsletter.
We sometimes run sweepstakes with our partners and sweepstakes entries may require you to provide an email address. These email addresses may be shared with the partner involved in the competition. We make it clear when this is the case and we have no responsibility for subsequent use or distribution of email addresses by our partners. However we make every effort to scrutinise the privacy policies of our partners and their adherence to PECR/Data Protection Act guidelines.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during registration and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is guaranteed to be secure but we regularly review our security procedures and strive to choose the most effective solutions for keeping members’ personal information safe.
Third Party Sites and Booking Tools
FamilyBreakFinder does not sell travel products or services, but directs you to third party websites that do. These sites may collect personally identifiable information from you, such as your name, address, credit card details or details pertaining to other methods of payment. These sites may have their own privacy policies which will govern how such sites use and share your personally identifiable information. In addition, FamilyBreakFinder may display third party booking tools. When you utilise these third party booking tools, you are subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of those third parties.
FamilyBreakFinder has no input into, and is not responsible for, the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of other web sites you link to from FamilyBreakFinder.

This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website.
