  • Details of your visits to our site, which may include, but not be limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, whether this is required for our own billing purposes or otherwise and the resources that you access.
  • If you visit our site and your visit is tracked, you may see more advertising from us around the web. This is called re-targeting. It’s pretty common. Sorry if it annoys you. We only do it because we think you’ll love Suffolk Places.

IP addresses

We may collect information about the equipment you use to access our site, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.


Our website uses cookies to help us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website.

For example, we use cookies when you log in to Suffolk Places to manage your accommodation. Without some form of cookie, you’d have to log in again with every page refresh. We use sessions (another kind of cookie) when you book online, as these enable you to add multiple bookings to a reservation.

We also use re-targeting software that may set cookies on your machine. This is so we can advertise to you around the web after you’ve visited our website, in the hope you will return and become a customer.

We do not use cookies in any malicious or subversive way that we feel would compromise your trust in us. That’s just not the way we do business.
