We are committed to ensuring the best standards of practice in all our activities. Visitors to our web site can be assured that the protection of privacy and confidentiality are given the highest priority. All personal information is collected, held and used in strict compliance with the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation EU 2016/679), (‘GDPR’), which came into effect from 25 May 2018.
Information collected & how we use this:
We do not collect any personal information from visitors to our website other than information that is knowingly and voluntarily given. Anonymous information is collected, such as the number of visitors to the website in a given period or details of properties and dates selected for online bookings, but it is purely statistical and cannot be used to identify an individual user. Cookies are not used to collect any other information from visitors to the website.
Making an enquiry:
If you make an enquiry with us via email, telephone, website, our social media channels or any third party channel, we will only use the data that you provide to respond to you regarding that specific enquiry. If you request specific accommodation, we may also provide you with details of other chalets & apartments that we feel might be of interest. If we do not hear back from you regarding our offers, we may after a short period of around one week, re-contact you with a reminder of the offers provided in the previous correspondence. After approximately one month we may re-contact you with an offer that you can use in the future should you wish to get in touch with us again. Your contact details are held securely and password protected, and will not be passed to a third party.
Making a booking:
When you make a booking with us, either via our website, or via a third party website that provide us with your contact details, we will use that data in order to fulfil your booking with us. The data we will collect on the Booking Form (for example: name, email, telephone number, names of group, payment details) is held securely in our booking system and is used to help us to manage your booking. Within a few days of booking, we may telephone you to discuss your booking with us. We may also contact you via email and potentially again via telephone to help to arrange everything you need for your holiday with us and potentially during your holiday to check everything is OK. If you choose to book any services and activities with us during your holiday (for example airport transfers, ski lessons, winter or summer activities) then your contact details may be provided to the third party responsible for organising that service / activity for the express purpose of organising these with you. We will also share your contact details (email address and telephone number) with our in-resort property managers, and they will contact you before your stay to finalise details and share accommodation access information. After your departure we may again contact you to ask for feedback on your holiday and to leave a review. After your booking, we will hold your details within our secure database, and your email will be added to our mailing list to receive news and offers from PureChalets. We will not pass your details onto any third party except for the examples above.
Your contact details will be held on our database by PureChalets until such time as you choose to have these removed. You may request details of personal information which we hold about you. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please contact us.
Also, if you wish to have your details removed from our database then please contact Andy Stoves at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +33643 637863
