About this Policy
This policy explains when and why we collect personal information about our customers, how we use it, how we keep it secure and your rights in relation to it
We will always comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) when dealing with your personal data. Further details on the GDPR can be found at the website for the Information Commissioner (www.ico.gov.uk). For the purposes of the GDPR, we will be the “controller” of all personal data we hold about you
We will always comply with the requirements of the payment card industry standards PCIDSS and we are accredited in our handling of card data
We carried out an audit of data and determined that we only use people’s data in ways any customer would reasonably expect and which has a minimal privacy impact and therefore the majority of our Legal Basis of Processing has been classified as Legitimate Interests. On this basis we do not require Consent for any of our day to day activities.
What data do we collect?
Personal is collected during the reservation and booking process. This information is name, address, telephone number, email address, nationality, credit/debit card details, and any special requests such as dietary requirements
We do not collect personal sensitive information such as race, age, sexual orientation or religion for any reason
If an accident or incident occurs on site, we will complete appropriate incident records (which may include personal data). We may be required to share this with the appropriate statutory bodies.
CCTV is used in some public areas for security and crime prevention and the use is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Recordings are kept on a local system and are overwritten approximately every 5 days. Recordings are only viewed in the event of an incident and only viewed by management in a private office. The images can be viewed by police if requested by the police in an official capacity.
How and why do we use the data?
We are required by law (Immigration (Hotel Records) Order 1972 (as amended)) to keep a record of all guests over the age of 16 including full name and nationality. This must be kept for at least 12 months. After 12 months from your stay, you can request that the information be removed.
For all guests who are not British, Irish or Commonwealth guests we also require passport number, place of issue, next destination
Data is used exclusively by Lakeland House and will not be passed on or sold to any other third parties.
We use data in the normal legitimate operation of our business to manage the customer stay; for example, to confirm booking details, contact customers for lost property.
