Hemera Holidays are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
In line with GDPR, this policy is effective from 23/05/2018, and we will update you with any changes to future updates to our Privacy Notice.
We understand the importance of GDPR and our role as a custodian of the data you have provided to us either as an interested person or as a user of our services.
Here is a simple summary of the content of this policy, it separates into two parts.
- We will only collect your data if you want us to, that includes providing us your details as part of a business discussion, or when booking a holiday with us. Personal contact details may be passed to the owner of the property you are staying in but only for them to contact you in case of an emergency or if a problem occurs.
- We act as a data controller for data we collect.
- We don’t do everything ourselves, we use other sub-processors such as Worldpay, Websand, Mailchimp, Google Analytics and Bookalet.
- As part of the move to GDPR compliance we have used legitimate interests as a legal method of consent to continue to process the data of our users, and people that have previously signed up, or have provided their details as part of ongoing business discussions.
- As has always been the case, when it comes to removing yourself from our communications, you can unsubscribe at any time.
- We do collect cookies, but we don’t really do anything with them. It’s really just aggregated reporting within Google Analytics.
If you wish us to remove your data, or wish to request a subject access request, please let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
