To Perform a Contract/Provide a Service

This information is likely to include your name, address, age group, contact details, payment details, information about people in your party, information about your booking and any additional information we may need to help meet your specific requirements. If you let your holiday accommodation through us, or we provide property management services to you, we will use information such as your name, address, contact details, bank account details and details regarding the accommodation you wish to let, to perform our agreement(s) with you. If you do not provide us with the information set out in this paragraph, then we may not be able to provide our booking or letting services.

We may also use and disclose your personal data without your permission in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.
6 How do we manage your information?
We may from time to time appoint third party service providers to help us manage efficient systems within the business.

8 How long will we hold your information for?
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
We will take all reasonable steps to destroy, or erase from our systems, all the personal information we hold about you when it is no longer required.
9. Your rights
You have the right to ask us at any time:
to confirm whether we hold any of your personal data;
to send you a copy of any personal data that we hold about you;
to correct any inaccuracies in your personal data and to add relevant details where the personal data we hold is incomplete;
to delete (to the extent possible) any of your personal data, where we are required by law to do so;
to stop processing your personal data, where we are required by law to do so;
to let you have a portable copy of the personal data we hold about you, where we are required by law to do so;

Please note, however, that we may continue to send you service-related communications (ie non-marketing), such as emails relating to your booking or to your holiday accommodation.
Where we have reached a decision that affects you by processing your personal data automatically, then you have the right to speak to someone to discuss that decision. We do not use your personal data for the purpose of profiling. Where we process your personal data on the basis that you have given us your consent to do so, then you may contact us at any time to withdraw your consent.
