What data we collect

Booking

Upon booking online or over the phone with Rowton Hall Hotel, we ask you to provide certain personal details which are necessary to provide our service.

The details we record are: full name of main guest, address, postcode, phone number and payment details. This is so we can contact you regarding your booking before and during your stay with us, process your payment and keep details of your payment on file for accounting purposes.

Our online booking system will prompt you to create an account. If you choose to open one, we will store your details to make it easier for you to book with us again in the future.

During your stay with us, we may store data relating to how you have used our service, for example if you have used our Health Club, spa and room service. This is so we can contact you with personalised and relevant offers. We will only contact you with these offers if you have opted into receiving marketing from us.

We do not pass on your data to third parties. If we choose to do so in future, we will contact you by email with the relevant Privacy Policy changes. You are able to opt out at any time from all direct marketing by contacting reception@rowtonhallhotelandspa.co.uk.

If you wish for your data to be removed from our systems after your stay with us or after cancelling a booking, please contact reception@rowtonhallhotelandspa.co.uk and provide your booking reference number where possible.

Vouchers

When you purchase a voucher from our website, we will ask you for your name, address, post code, email address, company name and a delivery address. This is so we can process your order and ship your voucher to the correct address. You will also be prompted to create an account. If you choose to open an account, we will store your details to make it easier for you to book with us again.

If you wish for your data to be removed from our systems after your purchase has been processed, please contact reception@rowtonhallhotelandspa.co.uk and provide your order number.

For example, Google Analytics tags track your interactions with the website so we can improve our user experience and ensure our content is relevant. We cannot identify you from this information.

Other cookies may track your booking journey to help us personalise your user experience or target you with relevant marketing messages. Also, if you start a booking, you will be able to resume where you left off if you come back to the website unless you delete your cookies.

The information collected by our cookies is stored in our data warehouse and is not shared with any third parties unless they are acting as data processors on our behalf, for example, our email service provider.

Most websites use cookies as part of the website experience. If you decide not to use cookies, you can still use the website but you may not be able to access certain parts of the service.

Retention of data

Rowton Hall Hotel stores your data for a fixed period of time unless you contact us and ask us to delete your data. For tax reasons, we are required to keep payment information on file for six years and this can be anonymised in the event that you ask for your data to be deleted.

Disclosure of personal data

As Rowton Hall Hotel is bound by UK and European laws, we may have to disclose your personal data if requested to do so by the law.

Keeping your data safe

While we take all precautions to keep all data safe, we cannot guarantee against security breaches due to hacking. When you submit data, you do so at your own risk. In the case of a security breach relating to customers’ personal data, we will contact the information commissioner within 72 hours.
