When we do so we are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation, which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

In such cases, if you are a hotel guest or traveller and have any queries regarding the use of your personal data or wish to access your personal data, you should contact the relevant data controller directly (or contact us, and we will try to assist with directing you to the relevant person).
