On the 25th May, 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect which regulates what information is collected, stored and used related to personal data. We have all been subject to unwanted emails, phonecalls, text messages and worse due to companies and individuals using our personal data so this will, hopefully, reduce this annoyance to our personal life.
Here is the Bod Gwynedd we have strict policies related to the storage and use of our guests data and thus welcome the opportunity to update and inform our guests how we are taking, storing and using their personal information.
What Personal Data we we collect?
When you book a room via our website or one of the Online Booking Agents (OBA) we use to facilitate your request, your full name along with home address, email and contact number(s) will be taken and stored on an encrypted database provided by the services of Queensborough Group, 14 Bury New Road, Breightmet, Bolton, BL2 6QB. Similar data may be taken and held via the Online Agent you choose and for this you will have to check their compliance with the new regulation.
In addition to your personal details your method of payment will be taken, validated, encrypted and held in a secure database by Stripe Payments (UK) Ltd , 9th Floor, 107 Cheapside, London, EC2V 6D. Card details are used to reserve the room(s) however no payment is taken unless the room is cancelled within the full payment period or incase of a "no show".
