Third party advertising cookies
a)Most of the advertisements you see on the website are generated by third parties.
Some of these third parties generate their own cookies (or web beacons) to track how many people have seen a particular advertisement (or use the services of third parties to do this), and to track how many people have seen it more than once. These cookies cannot be used to identify an individual; they can only be used for statistical purposes, for example, in providing you with advertisements that are more relevant to your interests. Some of the information gleaned from third party cookies will be aggregated with other anonymous information for statistical purposes. The third party companies that generate these cookies have their own, very strict, privacy policies but we don’t have access to these cookies; other than allowing them to be served, we have no role to play in these cookies at all (although we may use statistical information arising from these third party cookies and provided to us by third parties, to improve the targeting of advertisements to users of the website).
b)If you would like to disable “third party” cookies generated by advertisers or providers of targeted advertising services, you can turn them off by going to the third party’s website and getting them to generate a one-time “no thanks” cookie that will stop any further cookies being written to your machine.
c)You can visit the trade body representing these advertising companies for more information on how to opt out of these cookies: http://youronlinechoices.com/
How we use your data
Our primary purpose in using your data is to provide you with your booking. We may analyse your data (or provide your data to agents who are contracted to supply services to us) to create a data profile to enable us to provide a better service to you. We will keep all your personal information provided by you confidential except that we may use personal information for any of the following purposes:
- Administration, general correspondence, support, profiling and processing (including personalising the Site for your use);
- Contacting you to register your use of the Site, to advise you of any special offers, to notify you of new features or to resolve any queries you or we may have regarding us or the Site or its use;
- Responding to any requests or queries from you;
- Contacting you to notify you of other services or products that might be of interest to you (although you can elect not to receive any of these at any time by contacting us as set out below); and
- Subscribing you to our newsletters or email alerts or online surveys (although you can unsubscribe from these at any time by contacting us as set out below).
Your consent to processing data
By Law we are required to obtain your consent to processing your data. We will assume that you have given your consent to the uses outlined above if you provide us with any data via our web sites or via replies to advertisements. You can advise us that you wish to withdraw your consent by sending us an email explaining the situation to Reservations@vistahotels.co.uk
Where we process or transfer your data outside of what is outlined in ‘How we use your data’ we will ask you to provide your specific consent.
How we protect your data
The data that you have provided will remain in databases that are established in a network that is firewall protected. Firewalls exist to stop the transfer of unauthorised information to or from the network. Physical access to our servers is restricted through the use of door code security systems. Higher level user login ID and password controls are also in place to restrict access. Only a limited number of IT personnel are authorised by the IT director to access the database. We use industry standard security technology and server certification.
As a routine we carry out validation checks to help prevent fraud. No protection system is foolproof and the company cannot guarantee the total security of data or accept any liability unless a breach of security was due to our proven wilful default or negligence. Certain web sites linked to our site may not offer the same protections as the Vista Hotels Ltd. web sites and the laws of some countries outside the Channel Islands or the EU to which your data may be transferred as part of the process of providing products and services to you, may not offer the same data protection.
You can update your data or ask us to delete your data at anytime by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We promise to try to delete or update your information promptly.
