Thank you for visiting and using our websites, our social media pages, and our mobile applications (“Sites”).
Warwick Hotels & Resorts ("the Warwick group”) respects your right to privacy when you use our Sites and when you stay at our hotels and resorts. This Notice explains how and for what purposes we use the information collected about you via our Sites, at our hotels and resorts, via offline/online programs, and/or at events.
Warwick Hotels & Resorts manages a central booking system that allows branded hotels and resorts to collect the personal data which are necessary to organize your stay with them. We also store your personal data as our clients in our global database when you stay at a branded Warwick Hotels and Resorts and/or when you participate in our Warwick Journeys loyalty program.
We draw your attention to the fact that Warwick Hotels & Resorts includes a wide range of branded hotels. Some of the hotels are fully owned by the Warwick group, (“owned hotels”), some are operated by the Warwick group under a management agreement with the hotel’s owner (“managed hotels”), and some are commercialized by the Warwick group under a commercial affiliation agreement (”affiliated hotels”) or under a franchise agreement (“franchised hotels”) entered into with the respective owner(s) of the hotel(s). Warwick Hotels & Resorts and the respective managed, affiliated or franchised hotel will be both acting as data controllers or co-controllers.
To ensure that your privacy rights are respected, Warwick Hotels & Resorts requires all Warwick Hotels & Resorts branded hotels and their respective owners to respect the principles set in this Privacy Notice.
