It enables us to give you convenient access to our products and services and focus on categories of greatest interest to you. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on the latest deals and events, as well as new destinations and services on offer.
If you do not want Sanssouci Collection to keep you up to date with Sanssouci Collection news, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to unsubscribe to all email lists.
What information we collect and how we may use it
There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better service. For example:
When you interact with Sanssouci Collection, we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and contact preferences; your credit card information and information about the Sanssouci Collection services you have previously used, such as properties visited or bespoke holidays booked; and information relating to your stay with us.
We also collect information for market research purposes to gain a better understanding of our Guests and thus provide more valuable service.
We collect information regarding Guest activities on our websites, at our properties, and over email. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to Guests and to understand which parts of our websites, products and services, and properties are of most interest to them.
We may use personal information to provide services that you have requested as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve Sanssouci Collection's overall offer.
Publicly displayed information is public
If you use a bulletin board or guest feedback area on a Sanssouci Collection website you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Sanssouci Collection is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, Sanssouci Collection will collect that information from your interaction and the information will become publicly available.
When we disclose your information
Sanssouci Collection takes your privacy very seriously. Sanssouci Collection does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers.
Within the Sanssouci Collection Group
With our service providers, vendors, and strategic partners
There are also times when it may be advantageous for Sanssouci Collection to make certain personal information about you available to companies that Sanssouci Collection has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Sanssouci Collection to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, extend credit, fulfill Guest orders, deliver products to you, manage and enhance Guest data, provide Guest service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct Guest research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with Sanssouci Collection's policies, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection. For example, when you book a holiday or guest room, you authorize Sanssouci Collection and its credit card processing partner to exchange the information that you provide during the reservation process to fulfil the service. If your card transaction is accepted, your account will be governed by Sanssouci Collection's and its partner's respective privacy policies. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to make reservations, have products delivered to you, receive Guest service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services or offers available on the Sanssouci Collection website.
At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
