This Privacy Policy gives detailed information as to when and why we collect personal information from you, how we keep it secure and how we use it.

Your Data:


The PRCLT only stores personal data that is relevant to our activities. From 25th May 2018 the data protection law is evolving into the General Data Protection Regulation, which has more specific controls on how data is stored and managed.


How we collect and use data:


Emailing list:

Individuals can choose to sign up to our general emailing list to be sent occasional (usually monthly) newsletters about our recent activities and upcoming events. People can either complete a form at the West Shed and be added to the list via our office, or sign up themselves via our website or Facebook page. We will never share your email address with any third parties, with the exception of storing your email address within our online ‘Mailchimp’ account, which we use to send out newsletters to defined distribution lists. Mailchimp has their own Privacy Policy which can be found on their website:

You can unsubscribe from our email list at any time by following the link that is contained in every email.


PMR Tours Postal mailing list

People who book onto a PMR Tours train trip are added to our postal mailing list to be sent information about future train trips, one or two leaflet mailings per year. Names and addresses are stored in a secure computer database and will never be shared with third parties. We process this data according to the ‘Legitimate Interest’ rule, whereby past PMR Tours customers can reasonably expect to have an interest in hearing about further trips. Individuals can request that their details are removed from this mailing list at any time.


Patrons & Friends of the Duchess

When people join the PRCLT as a Patron or Friend of the Duchess we store personal data on a membership database (name, address, telephone, email). Members can choose how they would like to be contacted and magazines and newsletters are sent out as part of the membership package. Where members choose to pay their subscription via a standing order, the PRCLT does not have access to any information relating to an individual’s bank account. Contact details will never be shared with any third parties.

What are cookies and how do we use them?

Cookies are pieces of data that a website can transfer to a user’s web browser. The cookies may remain on your computer after you leave the website but you can manually delete them using most browsers. Most web browsers are pre-set to accept cookies. Some cookies store data just for the time you are on the website. These are called session cookies and are not stored on your computer after you have left the website.

A pixel tag (also known as a web beacon or clear GIF) is an invisible 1×1 pixel that is placed on web pages. When you access these web pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of the visit and allow us to set or read our cookies. We use pixel tags in combination with cookies to track activity on our websites, particularly to track visits, times and dates of visits, pages viewed, country and city locations, devices used, purchases, sources visited before coming to our websites, demographics and email sign ups. We use these for reporting and for marketing purposes to retarget advertising and for lookalike modelling. This information is used to make our websites and advertising more relevant to your interests.

If you prefer not to receive cookies, you can adjust your web browser to refuse cookies or to warn you when cookies are being used. You can also use plugins and extensions that block the functionality of pixel tags. Most elements of the PRCLT website will still function if you disable cookies in your web browser settings.

When you visit the PRCLT website, if your browser is using the standard settings and it is accepting cookies, you are giving consent for cookies on the PRCLT website to be stored on your computer.
