How do we use information about you?

Where you have contacted us with a particular query, or to make accommodation payment, we will use your personal data to allow you to access your account, to help us respond to you with the relevant information and to complete your booking.

Also, it helps us make sure we and certain third parties are sending you information about products, services and offers that will be of interest to you.

In some instances we will also pass your personal data onto third parties. For example, when you make accommodation payment we will pass your personal data onto the landlord so that they can get in touch about your accommodation. We will also share your personal data with our other group companies so they can help provide you with the information and services you have requested.

We may use the personal data we collect about you on an anonymised basis to create statistics and anonymised information which we then share with third parties including ad networks, search engines and analytics providers.
