We disclose personal data to our service providers to allow them to provide services to us and assist us in carrying out your requests, and to our partners in aggregate, demographic form in connection with our marketing and business development efforts.

In addition, we may disclose information we hold, including personal data: when permitted or required to do so by law; in response to a request from a law enforcement agency or authority, or any regulatory authority; and/or to protect the integrity of the services or our interests, rights, property, or safety, and/or that of our users and others.
See the “Your choices” section below for information about how you can make decisions about how we process personal data, including how to opt out of certain marketing communications.

  3. Compliance with legal obligations and the protection of individuals. We may use personal data to comply with the law and our legal obligations, as well as to protect you and other individuals from certain harms.

We process personal data collected through social media platforms and web tracking technologies to market to, and understand, our audience.

For example, stay data for guests staying with the same company or client may be aggregated and provided to that party based on our contractual obligations or to address informational request or requirements of that party; and

  • We disclose personal data with third parties when we believe it is required by, or is necessary to comply with, the applicable law.

Protecting personal data
We employ reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and organizational safeguards designed to promote the security of our systems and protect the confidentiality, integrity, availability, and resilience of personal data. These safeguards include: (i) the pseudonymization and encryption of personal data where we deem appropriate; (ii) taking steps to ensure personal data is backed up and remains available in the event of a security incident; and (iii) the periodic testing, assessment, and evaluation of the effectiveness of our safeguards.

However, no method of safeguarding information is completely secure. While we use measures designed to protect personal data, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will be effective or sufficient. In addition, you should be aware that the transfer of data on the internet is not always secure, and we cannot guarantee that information you transmit by using the services is or will be secure.

Retention of personal data
We retain your personal data for as long as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected, and to the extent necessary or appropriate to carry out the processing described above, including but not limited to compliance with applicable laws, regulations, rules and requests of relevant law enforcement and/or other governmental agencies, and to the extent we deem reasonably necessary to protect our rights and our partners’ rights, property, or safety, and the rights, property, and safety of our users and other third parties.

We take into account and consider multiple factors, including the scope and nature of the personal data, the potential risk of harm to data subjects from a data breach, and legal requirements, in determining the appropriate retention period. If you have a specific question regarding the retention of your personal data, you may contact us as described in the section “Additional information and assistance”.

Specifically, billing information is retained for 5 years for accounting and tax law purposes, and information about legal transactions is retained for 10 years to enable us to review any ongoing legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce agreements.  We will also retain your information for marketing communication purposes until you “opt-out” of such communication, or request that we delete all the information that we have collected about you.

The data we collect in connection with the operation of the services may be processed in an automated manner (in this case, in the form of profiling), but this will not lead to legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly effects for you.

The data we use for profiling is not sensitive
We use cookies and pixel tags, including those placed and activated by analytical software, to personalize and enhance your experience in regard to our services, to collect data about your visit to our services, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer the services, to evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing and advertising campaigns, to permit analytics providers to gather information about your visit to the services, to permit advertisers to collect information about your online activity and target advertising to you that is relevant to your interests as determined from your online activity (also known as “online behavioral advertising”), and to gather broad demographic information about our users. As a result of profiling marketing, actions will be generated, and sales analyses and forecasts will be created.

Please see the “Cookies” and “Your choices” section of this Privacy Policy for more information about cookies and other web tracking technology on the services; for information about how you can reject, delete, or prevent cookies from being stored on your system; and how you can opt out of, limit, or prevent certain web tracking technologies and/or advertising providers from collecting information about you.
