Cookie policy; we do not know what they are or how to collect them! Apparently the booking engine embedded in this system will probably collect or send cookies and the google anylytics thing does whatever it does!
Privacy policy; We will not knowingly share your information with anyone -someone might steal it but that, like cookies is beyond our ability to control. We try hard, but its beyond our understanding -yours too possibly, unless you are clever like the sort of people who might steal this sort of stuff.
