Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract eg: making a booking with us, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to carry out that contract. In that case we may not be able to provide our services to you. If so, we will notify you of this at the time.
The bases on which we process information about you
The law requires us to determine which of six defined bases we process different categories of your information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data. If the basis changes then required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
Contractual obligation When you book accommodation with us, a contract is formed between you and us. In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information. We use it in order to provide you with our services and we process this information on the basis that there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a contract.
Information processed with the purposes of legitimate interest We may process information on the basis that there is a legitimate interest, either to you or us, of doing so. Where we process information on this basis, we do so after careful consideration to whether the same objective could be met through other means and whether you would expect us to process your data and whether in the round, you would consider it reasonable for us to do so. For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business, or responding to communication from you in which we believe you would expect a response.
Information processed because we have a legal obligation Sometimes we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation. For example we may be required to provide information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a court order or search warrant. This may include your personal information.
