What kind of personal information do we collect?
When you book through us, you provide certain information such as your name, address, e-mail, phone number and payment information. If you happen to fill in the booking pages but for some reason do not actually complete the booking, you will still be considered to have provided us with your information.
If you contact us, whether by phone, e-mail or another method, you will be asked to provide certain information. This is likely to include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number. We need this information so that we can respond to you appropriately.
There are also other instances when you will provide us with information, for example if you register to manage your booking via our website or leave a review.
Information you give to us about others in your party
If you are booking with others or for someone else, you will have to give us their information as well, for example their name and date of birth. It is your responsibility to ensure that they are aware that you have done so, and also that they accept how we use and process their information as well as yours.
