MacBeale (with official name Doune Holdings Ltd) operates macbeale.com and may operate other websites. It is MacBeale policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, MacBeale collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. MacBeale’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MacBeale visitors use its website. From time to time, MacBeale may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

MacBeale also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on MacBeale.com blogs/sites. MacBeale only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to MacBeale websites choose to interact with MacBeale in ways that require MacBeale to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MacBeale gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who request our property brochures at MacBeale.com to provide their name, email address and telephone number. In each case, MacBeale collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MacBeale. MacBeale does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

MacBeale may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. MacBeale may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MacBeale does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

MacBeale discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on MacBeale’s behalf or to provide services available at MacBeale websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using MacBeale websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MacBeale will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, MacBeale discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when MacBeale believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MacBeale, third parties or the public at large. If you have supplied your email address whilst requesting property brochures, we may occasionally send you an email to keep you updated with our products and services. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. MacBeale takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
