At AVANTÉ Hotel we stress the importance of privacy and are committed to earning the trust of our guests by adopting high standards for the protection of personal information.
Our policy outlines the type of personal information we collect and receive, the circumstances in which we collect or receive personal information, the policies and procedures we have established outlining its use and storage, and for sharing certain types of personal information in certain limited circumstances, the procedures you should follow if you have any questions or requests in respect of your personal information or our policies and procedures and the person to whom such questions or requests should be directed, and the means by which to communicate with that person.
In this policy, personal information refers to information about you that is personally identifiable such as your name, address, e-mail address or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available nor part of your work identification. It also includes information on guest preferences and usage, when such information is supplied to or recorded by AVANTÉ Hotel in the course of transacting business with an individual.
Below is an outline of the type of information normally collected in each of these circumstances, the reasons for doing so, how we will use it and store it.
When making a reservation or using AVANTÉ Hotel services it is necessary for us to have your information in order to identify you, contact you and to process your purchase and requests. This information usually includes your name, age, gender, NRIC or Passport details, residential address, phone number, e-mail address, credit card number and expiration date, language preference etc. It may also include, if you choose to share that information with us, your preferences regarding the delivery of your service such as type of room, type of bed, and the like. You may wish to have your purchase of AVANTÉ Hotel’s services recognized in a third party’s loyalty program with which AVANTÉ Hotel has a relationship. To do so, we will require you to provide us with certain verification information such as your membership number in our third party program. We may also offer special discounts from time to time that may have qualifying criteria, including special offers to, for example, seniors or for children. To assess your eligibility and process your reservation accurately, we require a record of your date of birth at the time of booking. You may also be required to provide personal identification with your date of birth in order to verify this upon check-in.
From time to time, we may offer packages or other services that involve third parties. If you are partaking in such a package or service, your personal information will be shared with that third party to the extent necessary to provide that service and process the purchase or request.
AVANTÉ Hotel may use the information you provide to send you offers and information about AVANTÉ Hotel services and those of select third parties.
