Our Privacy Commitment

Your privacy is important and we are committed to the protection of the personal information we collect from you.

This policy explains how we use and protect the personal information that we collect and share. Its goal is transparency and assistance to you so that you have complete confidence in the integrity of your browsing experience.


What Kind Of Information We Collect

Personal Data You Give To Us

We collect and use information which you provide to us. When you click to book, you are (as a minimum) asked for your name and email address. Depending on your booking, we may also ask for your home address, telephone number, payment information, date of birth, the names of any guests travelling with you and any preferences (such as meal preferences and any mobility restrictions).

There are also other instances where you'll provide us with information. For example:-

Information About Others

If you make a booking for someone else through this site, you may submit that individual's personal information. However, it's your responsibility to ensure that the person or people you have provided personal data about are aware that you've done so, and have understood and accepted how we use their information (as described in this privacy statement)

Automatic Collection Of Other Information

We automatically collect some information from your computer or Device when you visit our websites or apps. This happens even if you don't make a booking. This includes your IP address, the date and time you accessed our services, the hardware, software or internet browser you use and information about your computer's operating system, and locale\language settings. We also collect information about clicks and which pages have been shown to you. When you make a booking, our system registers through which means and from which website you have made your booking.

For mobile device users, we also collect data that identifies your mobile device, device-specific settings and characteristics, application performance and other system activity.

Information From Other Sources

We may also receive information about you from other sources. These include business partners, such as affiliate partners, and other independent third parties, and anything we get from them may be combined with information provided by you. When you use some of these, you provide the booking details to our business partner, who then forward your details to us.

Hotels and their appointed third-parties may share information about you with us too. This may happen if you have support questions about your pending booking, or when disputes arise about your booking.
