Privacy Policy and Website Use Conditions

Holdsworth House Hotel & Restaurant – Privacy Statement

“Holdsworth House”, “we”, “us”, “our property and “our hotel” refer to the Cavalier Country Club Ltd, trading as Holdsworth House Hotel and Restaurant.

This privacy policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information that we collect when you are on our site, and when you use our services. This policy also applies to our treatment of any personally identifiable information that our business partners share with us. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that we do not employ or manage.

Information Collection and Use

At every touch point or guest interaction, and in conducting every aspect of our business, we may collect personal information. This personal information may include: your contact information; information related to your reservation, stay or visit to a property; participation in a membership or loyalty program; participation in a sweepstakes or marketing programs (even if you do not stay at our hotel); information related to the purchase and receipt of products or services; personal characteristics, nationality, income, passport number and date and place of issue; travel history; payment information; guest preferences; marketing and communication preferences; information about vehicles you may bring onto our property; reviews and opinions about our hotel (if they are identified or associated with you); groups with which you are associated for stays at hotels; transaction and correspondence details; and other types of information that you choose to provide to us or that we may obtain from third parties. We may also record details on joint travelers, including their names. We may also collect and keep information and records related to conversations, including recording or monitoring customer service calls.

Surveys: We may request demographic data or other personal information in customer surveys.

On-property Collection:  Local laws may require that we collect additional personal information during registration/check-in. We may also use closed circuit television and other security measures at our property that may capture or record images of guests, visitors in public areas and information related to your location while on our properties via keycards and other technologies. We may also use other technologies that record sound or video to protect our staff.

Event Profiles:  If you plan an event, meeting or wedding with us, we collect event specifications, the date of the event, number of guests, details of the guest rooms, and, for corporate events, information on your organisation (name, annual budget, and number of events per year). We also collect information about the guests that are a part of your group or event. If you visit us as part of a group, we may have personal information about you provided to us by the group and may market to you as a result of your stay with a group or attendance at an event. If you visit us as part of an event, we may share personal information about you with the event planners so they may include you as part of the event. If you are an event planner we may also share information about your event with third-party service providers who may market event services to you.

Social Media:  If you choose to participate in Holdsworth House-sponsored social media activities or offerings, we may collect certain information from your social media account consistent with your settings within the social media service, such as location, check-ins, activities, interests, photos, status updates and friend list. You should understand that you may be subject to the terms and conditions and any privacy policies of the social media site and that Holdsworth House is not responsible for your activities on social media sites.

Forward-To-A-Friend:  From time to time, we may offer a feature that allows you to send an electronic postcard or otherwise share a message with a friend, whether via the Internet, a stand-alone kiosk or mobile. If you choose to do so, we will ask you for the recipient’s name and email address, along with the text of any message you choose to include, or you may be able to use a pre-populated message. By using this feature, you represent that you are entitled to use and provide us with the recipient’s name and email address for this purpose.

Employment Applications:  If you choose to apply for employment with us we may collect data on your work history and addresses, home address, age, nationality, ethnicity. By applying for a position within our hotel you knowingly provide the information that may be used and shared amongst personnel who will be assessing your details in relation to the vacancy in hand.

Holdsworth House Websites:We may collect personally identifiable information when you visit or use our websites’ pages. We also automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.

We may use this information for three general purposes: to customise the content you see, to fulfill your requests for certain services and information, and to contact you.
