How does Bookings For You use this personal information?
We will use your name, address and credit card details to complete your booking with us.
We will also use your details to manage your booking arrangements, send you notifications and communicate with you generally.
For the purpose of completing your booking, we may have to disclose some of your information to the providers of the services making up your arrangements (who could be located outside the UK/EEA). We may also have to disclose some information to third parties in relation to customer services, credit card processing, or other services.
We may need to disclose your information where required by law, where such a request is made by a legal authority.
We may also disclose information to organisations who act as “data processors” on our behalf, or to other organisations that perform business functions on our behalf, some of whom are outside the UK/EEA. These functions include administration, providing services (and contacting you where necessary), customer care, business management and operations.
We may from time to time contact you with information about special offers, brochures, new products, forthcoming events or competitions. If you do not wish to receive such information, you may ask us in writing not to receive it.
We would also like to store and use your personal details for future marketing purposes (for example, emailing you our newsletter). All details you give us in connection with your booking will be kept but we will use only names and contact details for marketing purposes unless you have indicated that you do not wish us to do so.
We have taken all reasonable steps to have appropriate security measures in place to protect your information. Outside the European Economic Area, controls on data protection may not be as wide as the legal requirements in this country. The transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure. We exclude our liability for personal data lost in transmission to the website.
Will Bookings For You disclose any of this personal information to third parties?
Bookings For You will only disclose your name and booking details/holiday proposal to our suppliers for operational purposes. We will not pass on your details to other companies for marketing purposes.
To help facilitate bookings, we may share your information with others as follows:
When you as a Guest submit a booking request, certain information about you may be shared with the Property Owner, local Property Manager or cleaning team, including your full name and the full name of any additional Guests. When your booking is confirmed, we will disclose additional information to assist with coordinating the trip, like your phone number and estimated arrival time.
Bookings For You may disclose your information to courts, law enforcement or governmental authorities, or authorized third parties, if and to the extent we are required to do so by law or if such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process and to respond to claims asserted against Bookings For You.
In jurisdictions where we facilitate the collection and remittance of occupancy taxes, Property Owners and Guests expressly grant us permission, without further notice, to disclose their data and other information relating to them or to their transactions, bookings, accommodations and occupancy taxes to the relevant tax authority. This includes, but is not limited to, the Property Owner or Guest’s name, listing addresses, transaction dates and amounts, tax identification number(s), the amount of taxes received (or due) by Hosts from Guests, and contact information.
