Email Lists and Marketing Messages

We have an email mailing list consisting of both guests to St Valery Boutique B&B and others who have shown an interest in the activities of St Valery Boutique B&B.

The lists are used to inform subscribers about our services and/or news about local events.  Subscribers can unsubscribe at any time through an automated on-line service or, if not available, through contacting St Valery Boutique B&B directly.

Our EMS (email marketing service) provider is Mailchimp. As is normal for such providers email marketing messages may contain cookies in order to track subscriber activity within email marketing messages.
