About Us

BedPosts is a free-to-join online meeting place for independent accommodation providers who share information with one another with an aim of better marketing themselves within prevailing legislation. Members meet on Internet Forums hosted on www.BedPosts.org.uk and members' businesses are advertised on www.BedPosts.uk.

Both BedPosts.org.uk and BedPosts.uk host some services provided by BedPosts Business Club which is financed by a small annual subscription.

Your data is used to keep you informed in 3 principal ways:

  1. Reading and writing on the pages of the BedPosts Forums
  2. Summary of Forum posts sent out by email - daily, weekly or monthly according to member preference
  3. Ad-hoc mass emails sent out from a mass emailer, including MailChimp which has its own privacy policy:

These technologies collect information such as your IP address, browser and email client type and other similar details.
