Use of re-targeting functions on the website

Activation of interest-related advertising using “retargeting”
This website uses so-called “retargeting Tags”. A “retargeting tag” is a JavaScript element which is positioned in the website source code. When a user visits a page on this website which contains a “retargeting tag”, the provider of the online advertising (e.g. Google) places a cookie on the user’s computer and organises the advertising in accordance with retargeting target group lists. This cookie is subsequently used to activate retargeting campaigns (“Interest-related advertising “) on other websites. Studies have proven that integrating interest-related advertising is of greater interest for the Internet user than an advert which has no direct relation to the person’s interest and previously visited websites.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data that a website places on your computer.

Why do websites use cookies?
Web pages have no memory. If you are surfing from page to page within a website, you will not be recognised as the same user across pages. Cookies enable your browser to be recognised by the website. So cookies are mainly used to remember the choices you have made – choices such as the language you prefer and the currency you use. They will also make sure you are recognised when you return to a website.

Do all cookies do the same thing?
No, there are different types of cookies and different ways of using them. Cookies can be categorised according to their function, their lifespan and according to who places them on a website.

Booking & Events Terms & Conditions

Wedding Booking details
A contract will be issued at the time of your confirmation for you to agree, sign and return a copy to us. This will follow a similar format to the following: A provisional booking can be held for one month, after which a non-refundable deposit will be requested to secure your date. Three months prior to your wedding a further deposit will be required.
The number of guests attending your wedding should be estimated at the time of booking. The hotel requires exact figures at least 14 days prior to the event. Based on this, we will issue a pro-forma invoice, which is to be settled 7 days before the event. Any outstanding balance will be invoiced to you for settlement the day following the event. Should your numbers fall much below your original estimation, the hotel reserves the right to move your event to a smaller room, where appropriate.
All associated accommodation bookings for your wedding guests must be confirmed in writing with the relevant deposit.
The management reserves the right to amend prices at their discretion, however, all prices will be agreed and confirmed in writing at the time of confirmation.

Booking
At the time of booking a non refundable deposit of £1,000 will be required to secure your booking. A provisional booking can be held for 7 days pending the arrival of written confirmation and deposit payment.

Confirmation
60% of the final balance must be paid three months prior to the wedding date. At least one month prior to the wedding day the hotel will require final details. Upon receipt of this an estimate will be prepared and full payment will be required 14 days prior to the event. Credit terms are not available. The final attendance number must reach the hotel 72 hours prior to the day, this number will be charged in full or greater if the numbers should increase

Licenses
The hotel has been licensed as a venue for civil marriages. We have a liquor licence and are also licensed for public entertainment for up to 150 evening guests. Evening entertainment must finish by midnight and the bar will close at this time. An application for extensions or variations to the licenses will incur an additional charge.

Food and Drink
The hotel reserves the right to supply whatever food, drink or services may be required, except in the pre-arranged case of wedding cakes. Wedding cakes cannot be used as a dessert but can be served with your evening buffet. No wines, spirits, foods or other consumables may be brought into the hotel premises unless the prior consent of the management has been obtained.

Exclusive Use of the Hotel
This means that Langdon Court will be open exclusively to guests attending your wedding/reception. The cost for exclusive use is levied on a sliding scale. All exclusive weddings must guarantee occupancy of ALL hotel rooms. Please note that by booking an exclusive use wedding you are guaranteeing that guests attending your wedding reception will fill ALL our bedrooms. If any of the bedrooms remain empty (including if any booked guests do not arrive) you will be liable for the full room rate. **Not applicable to the Winter Wedding Package**

Regrettably wedding parties who do not require all hotel rooms, will not be allowed to conduct a late finishing musical/dancing event.

Hotel’s Liability
The hotel reserves the right to cancel any bookings forthwith and without liability on its part in the event of any damage or destruction of the hotel by fire or other cause, or any cause beyond the control of the company which shall prevent it from performing its obligations in connection with any other booking.
