Privacy Notice

Here at Hounds the Barbershop, we respect your privacy and are committed to maintaining the trust of our visitors. We want you to know that we are not in the business of buying or selling personal information for any purposes. We simply don’t do that sort of thing. In this Privacy Notice, we’ve provided the details of when and why we collect your information, how we use it and how we keep it secure.

Website Cookies

Cookies are small files which are stored on your (the user’s) computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of specific data and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to track use and deliver tailored information to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website to the next (such as the cookies acceptance message on this site).

We also use:

Google Analytics
When someone visits we use Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

With the ongoing threat of hacking, we utilise software on our website that helps us monitor firewall rules, malware signatures and malicious IP addresses in a bid to keep our data safe. Data captured include: IP addresses, location (when known), Time (local timezone), browser type and user agent

How to turn off cookies
If you do not want to accept these cookies, you can change your browser settings so that cookies are not accepted. If you do this, please be aware that you may lose some functionality of this website.

General Contact details

We may have obtained your email address (with your consent) as a result of you sharing it with us in person or via an enquiry made from the contact form on this website. These contact details are stored on a password encrypted computer in Cardiff and used for the sole purpose of communication.

You are entitled to amend or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to Mr P Monger



We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) which is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This secure link ensures that all data transferred remains private. It’s also called TLS (Transport Layer Security). Millions of websites use SSL encryption everyday to secure connections and keep their customer’s data safe from monitoring and tampering. Whilst it’s not a necessity it is best practice.
