What kind of personal data does Luxiocollection.com collect?
We can’t help you book the perfect Trip without information, so when you use our services there are certain pieces of information we ask for. This is pretty basic stuff – your name, preferred contact details, the names of anybody travelling with you and your payment information. You may decide for yourself to submit special requests for your upcoming Trip (for example, certain preferences ). In addition to this, we also collect information from your computer, phone, tablet or other device you are using to access our services. This includes the IP address, the browser you use, and your language settings. There are also situations in which we receive information about you from others or automatically collect other information. This is the basic overview of the information we collect, but if you’d like to know more, we go into a lot more detail below.
Personal data you give to us.
Luxiocollection.com collects and uses information which you provide to us. When you make a Reservation, you are (as a minimum) asked for your name and email address. Depending on the Reservation, we may also ask for your home address, telephone number, payment information, date of birth, the names of any guests traveling with you and any preferences (such as meal preferences and any mobility restrictions) you might have for your Trip.
If you need to get in touch with our customer service team, or reach out to us through other means (such as through social media, or communicating with your booked Business Partner through us) we will collect information from you there too. Guests can also be asked to provide a review to help ensure future guests get exactly what they’re looking for. We will collect information from you included in your reviews, including your display name and avatar if you choose one.
There are also other instances where you’ll provide us with information. For example, if you’re browsing with your mobile device, you can decide to enable Luxiocollection.com to see your current location or grant access to your contact details – this helps us provide you with the best possible service and experience (for example, to see our city guides, the nearest restaurants or attractions to your location or other recommendations). Your user account, which allows you to save your personal settings, upload photos, review previous bookings or plan and manage future reservations or benefit from other features only available to account holders (such as incentives or other benefits we may offer).
Personal data you give us about others.
Of course, you might not simply be making a Reservation for yourself. You may be doing a Trip with other guests whose details you provide as part of the Reservation, or you may make a Reservation on behalf of someone else (make sure he/she is a member too).
However, at this point we have to point out that it’s your responsibility to ensure that the person or people you have provided personal data about are aware that you’ve done so, and have understood and accepted how Luxiocollection.com uses their information.
Personal data we collect automatically.
As long you are a member we collect data as your name, surname, date of birth, domicile and payment information.
