As part of our commitment to providing best-in-class service to our guests, Geronimo Hospitality Group has created this policy to describe our policies regarding our collection of information from our guests (“you” or “your”), our use of such information, and our privacy practices with respect to information collected by us. We strongly urge you to review this policy completely and carefully, so that you may make informed decisions regarding your personal information.
Please be aware that we are based in the United States and do not have any operations in any country other than the U.S., including, without limitation, any country in the European Union. We welcome guests from all countries to stay at our hotels and to visit our restaurants; however, we do not directly market to or offer services to any non-U.S. residents.
While your acceptance of this policy is voluntary, your continued use and/or participation in any of the foregoing constitute your acceptance of this policy and any other applicable terms.
What Data Do We Collect?
A. Reservations and Memberships.
When you make a reservation to stay at one of our hotels or to eat at one of our restaurants, or when you join one of our fitness centers or clubs, you will be required to provide certain personal data, such as your name, address, phone number, and email address. We collect this data due to contractual necessity, as it is necessary in order for us to complete your reservation or activate your membership. If you choose to not provide your personal data when making a reservation or becoming a member, we may be limited in our ability to complete your transaction and provide you with other services. We will retain your personal data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this section, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
When you make a hotel reservation, we receive personal data from a variety of third party sources with whom we partner. These sources include, but are not limited to, the booking engines we use to take reservations, which may provide information directly to us; online travel agents, such as Expedia; third party wholesalers to whom we make limited rooms available for sale; and through the global distribution system used by certain travel industry service providers, such as travel agencies.
B. Use of Services.
You may generally use the Services without disclosing personally identifiable information. However, use of certain aspects of the Services may require you to submit personally identifiable information.
When you use the Services, we automatically collect data on your usage of the Services and your online behavior, including previous websites you visited, your computer’s web browser, operating system, and IP address, and how you navigate and interact with the Services. We collect this information on an anonymous basis.
We may also collect additional information from you, depending on how you engage with us. For example, if you participate in our “Groupies” loyalty program, you will be asked to provide information such as your name, email address, birthday, and phone number. We may collect information from you if you communicate with us through email or participate in online surveys. These services may require you to provide your email address, your name, and comments.
You may voluntarily sign up on the Services to participate in surveys, contests, or sweepstakes, or to receive promotions and other marketing material from us. The information collected may include your name, email address, zip code, and birthday and anniversary information.
Additionally, the Services offer you the opportunity to place requests for future services or services during your stay at one of our properties, such as making a restaurant reservation, booking conference rooms or ballrooms, or requesting room service. Information collected from you when you place requests for services through the Services includes your name, phone number, and email, and information about the service requested. We may also need information regarding your room number. If shared by you, we may also collect data relating to your likes and dislikes about our services and specific dietary, health restrictions, or personal needs to ensure your wellbeing.
Please be aware that the technical limitations of certain third party services we use may limit our ability to fully control the data we collect, which may limit our ability to control certain online behavioral advertising conducted via the Services. As new tools become available, we will review and update our practices regarding the data we collect for marketing purposes.
Also, we take reasonable measures and implement appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information that we collect. However, by agreeing to this policy, you acknowledge that transmission of information over the Internet is, inherently, not secure. Security breaches cannot be prevented entirely, and by continuing to use the Services and applications, you accept the risk that a security breach of one of our systems or those of one of our third party service providers may occur. For that reason, we ask that you do not send your social security or credit card numbers to us through an unsecured email.
How Will We Use Your Data?
