Which information do we collect from you?
In General: We receive and store all information you enter on our website or which you provide in any other way (e.g. by e-mail) or via a reservation you make using a tour operator or travel agency or the Internet platform by an independent provider facilitating hotel reservations (it is obvious that we are the recipients of the reservation information you have provided the platforms or tour operators/travel agencies to make a reservation at our hotel). This includes information by which we can identify you, such as your first name and surname, your telephone number, your postal and digital addresses, as well as billing information (such as your credit/debit card number, the name of the card holder and its expiry date). You may also enter/we may request information on your room preferences. You may choose not to provide information to us, but most information we request from you is generally required to complete a reservation.
Travel companion information: When you make a reservation that includes some other (travel companion) via our website, we shall request personal and or traveling information for said individual. You must obtain this other individual’s consent before you give us their personal information and travel preferences, since access for the display of said information or possible changes to them shall be available only via your account (or your reservation code).
Social Media. Should you use any of our hotel’s social media, either on our website or via a social networking provider, we may gain access to your personal information via this social networking provider and in accordance with said provider’s policies. For example, our website offers the option to register using the function “Facebook Login”, allowing you to register on our website using your Facebook account information, without entering on your own the information required on our website. When you use a social networking function, we may potential gain access to the information you provide by means of it, such as your name, profile avatar, sex, birthday, your e-mail address, your city, town or region, as well as any other information you have chosen to render available via the social networking medium.
Sensitive data (special categories of personal information): This term refers to data which reveal an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, their political beliefs, religious or philosophical convictions or participation in a trade union, as well as biometric data aimed to the indisputable identification of an individual, data relating to the health or information regarding the sexual life and preferences of a natural person or their gender orientation. In general terms, we do not collect sensitive data unless you voluntarily provide them. We may potentially utilize data on the state of your health, provided exclusively by you, in order to better serve you and satisfy your needs (for example, catering to offer access to the facilities for the disabled).
Provision of information by minors: We do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under 18 years. As the parent or legal guardian, you should not let children submit personal information without your permission.
How we use your information
We use billing credit/debit card information (such as the holder’s name, the number and expiry date of the credit/debit card) in order to complete the reservations you make on our website, by telephone or via a third party or any other way.

E-mail notices. We want to make it easy for you to take advantage of traveling opportunities on our website. One way to do so is by sending you e-mail messages. You will receive such emails, if you have given your consent to receive accommodation/reservation information or advertisements in e-mail form.
