Cookie Policy


Simply Sea Views (“us”,”we” or “our”) uses cookies on www.simplyseaviews.co.uk (“our website“) to provide a better, more personalised experience for our users. By using our website, you consent to the use of cookies.


What are Cookies?

Cookies are small data files that websites generate and ask to store on your computer. Most websites use cookies in one form or another. They are typically used to:


  • Remember settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page
  • Remember information you give to a website, such as a list of products in your shopping basket
  • Measure how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs

There are two different types of cookies:


  • Session cookies: These are temporary and are erased when you close your browser at the end of your surfing session. The next time you visit that particular site it will not recognise you and will treat you as a completely new visitor as there is nothing in your browser to let the site know that you have visited before (more on session cookies).
  • Persistent cookies: These remain on your hard drive until you erase them or they expire. How long a cookie remains on your browser depends on how long the visited website has programmed the cookie to last.

To learn more about cookies and how to manage them, visit AboutCookies.org, or please read on to find out more about how we use cookies.


Search & Form Data

When you perform a property search on our website, we save your search criteria to a session cookie. This saves you from having to fill in the search form each time you navigate away from and back to it.


We also save a session cookie to keep track of where you are in the enquiry or booking process and the details you have entered. This saves you from having to fill in the enquiry or booking forms each time you navigate away from and then back to a property page.


These will automatically be deleted each time you close your web browser.


Favourite Properties
