WHO WE ARE
Select Hotels of Ireland
Company Registration No : 327407
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU?
We collect information about you when you register for our newsletter or commence or complete an online transaction or hotel booking. We may also collect information about you when you contact our reservations team to make a booking over the phone.
We also collect information from you at networking and industry events to subscribe to any of our marketing communications. Some of the information we collect may be classed as personal data, that is, it is information about an individual who can be identified from it. It may be collected any time you submit it to us, whatever the reason may be.
In doing business with you, typically we will collect:
- Full or partial contact details including names and addresses (including business details if you are making a corporate booking), telephone and email details.
- If you have special requirements then it may also be necessary to collect details about diet or disability or any other preferences that you may have.
- When making a reservation or purchasing we collect payment card information from you should you choose to use this form of payment for purchasing or guaranteeing use of our products and services.
- If you choose to connect with us via social media links, for example such as Facebook or Twitter, we may collect your user name, your name (including surname) and email address, your gender, and your location.
If you provide us with any personal data relating to any third party (e.g. information about your spouse, children, employees or colleagues) for particular purposes, by submitting such information to us, you warrant and represent to us that you have obtained the consent of such third party to provide us with their personal data for the respective purposes.
HOW WILL WE USE THE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU?
We use the information we collect about you to process your bookings, answer your queries, process your gift card and voucher purchases and provide information to our hotel partners regarding your booking and processing your booking
With your consent, we will contact you via our marketing and sales channels (email/ phone/ post) about other related products and services we think may be of interest to you. Our marketing communications are generally sent by email but we may sometimes use other methods of delivery such as by post or SMS.
We may use your information to meet and comply with any applicable rules, laws, regulations, codes of practice or guidelines issued by any legal or regulatory body which are binding on us; and for purposes which are reasonably related to the aforesaid.
We operate a centralised reservation system. Reservation details are sent to member hotels with lead guest name, telephone number, number of guests and children’s ages and any special requirements. This means that any personal data you have shared with us for booking purposes will be made available to the specific hotel you have booked for reservations purposes.
We sometimes engage the services of trusted third parties to process the information collected by generating anonymised statistics to assist us with our marketing campaigns and business analysis. We do not disclose this anonymised data outside of our business group. It is not possible for the business to identify an individual from such anonymised data presented in our internal reports.
We share your data with members of the Select Hotels of Ireland Group for booking purposes. Where we use contracted and trusted third parties to facilitate our provision of services and offers, we will also share your data with those parties for that purpose. This includes the processing and delivery of marketing communications to you.
Third parties are subject to confidentiality obligations and may only use your personal data to perform the necessary functions as directed by us and not for other purposes.
We do not share your data with any third parties outside of the above processing arrangements and we do not share your data with any business external to our group for their own marketing purposes. From the data we collect, you should only ever receive marketing communications from our own brands & hotels.
We may also disclose personal data as permitted or required by law. For instance, if asked by the authorities, such as the An Garda Síochána or other Government Agencies. We may share your personal data with them for the purposes of prevention and detection of crime and in legal compliance with data protection laws and the General Data Protection Regulations. Information is not shared with them outside of this purpose.
