Privacy Notice


Domaine de la Chapelle de Vâtre (Vâtre) is a vineyard and accommodation business with operations in France and The United Kingdom.  We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our customers and website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.


This notice refers to personal data, which is defined as information concerning any living person (a natural person who hereafter will be called the Data Subject) that is not already in the public domain.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) seeks to protect and enhance the rights of data subjects. These rights cover the safeguarding of personal data, protection against the unlawful processing of personal data and the unrestricted movement of personal data within the EU. It should be noted that GDPR does not apply to information already in the public domain.

Personal Data

Vâtre uses the information collected from you to provide quotations, make telephone contact and to email you marketing information which we believe may be of interest to you. In you making initial consent to marketing contact from Vâtre we shall maintain a marketing dialogue with you until you either opt out (which you can do at any stage) or we decide to desist in promoting our services. Some personal data may be collected about you from the forms and surveys you complete, from records of our correspondence and phone calls and details of your visits to our website.  

We use Google Analytics and Squarespace Analytics to monitor visitors to our website.  These tools generate statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google's privacy policy is available at:  Vâtre does not store this information.

Any information Vâtre holds about you and your business encompasses all the details we hold about you and any sales transactions including any third-party information we have obtained about you from public sources and our own suppliers such as credit referencing agencies.

We will only collect the information needed so that it can provide you with marketing sales services.  We do not sell or broker your data.

Legal basis for processing personal data

In order for us to process personal data we must have a lawful purpose for doing so. This is outlined below.


Legitimate interests

When you provide your personal details to us we only use your information for our legitimate business interests. Before doing this, we will carefully consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights.  The following are some examples of when and why we would use this approach.

·      Direct Marketing: We will send occasional direct marketing by email. We will also make sure our direct marketing is relevant for you and where possible tailored to your interests.

·      Ordering online: In order for us to process an order, payment details are taken and contact information collected, such as name, address, telephone number, and email address.

·      Your best interest: Processing your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website, and to ensure our websites and systems are secure.

·      Analytics: To process your personal information for the purposes of customer analysis, assessment, profiling and direct marketing, on an aggregated basis, to help us with our activities and to provide you with the most relevant information as long as this does not harm any of your rights and interests.

·      Research: To determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising and to develop our products, services, systems and relationships with you.

·      Consent:  We also rely on consent for lawful processing where we have no legitimate interest. An example of this may be when you sign up to receiving marketing through our website. Every marketing email we send gives you the opportunity to withdraw consent by unsubscribing.


We do not broker or pass on information gained from your engagement with us without your consent. However, we may disclose your Personal Information to meet legal obligations, regulations or valid governmental request. We may also enforce our Terms and Conditions, including investigating potential violations of our Terms and Conditions to detect, prevent or mitigate fraud or security or technical issues; or to protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of Vâtre, our clients and/or the wider community.

Retention Policy

We will process personal data during the duration of any contract and will continue to store only the personal data needed for five years after the contract has expired to meet any legal obligations. After five years any personal data not needed will be deleted.

Data storage

Data is held in France and The United Kingdom using different servers. Vâtre does not store personal data outside the EEA.
