Transfers of personal data are to GRR affiliates in the UK only. Such transfers are governed by legally compliant agreements between the affiliates for the integrity and confidentiality of personal data.

 

Our Partner Organisations and Service Providers

We may disclose information about you to organisations that provide a service to us, ensuring that they are contractually obligated to keep your personal data confidential and will comply with the UK data protection laws and other relevant data protection laws.

 

We may share your information with the following types of service providers:

a) technical support providers who assist with our website and IT infrastructure,

c) professional advisers such as solicitors, accountants, tax advisors, auditors and insurance brokers;

We may transfer your personal data to potential purchasers and their advisors, subject to appropriate confidentiality obligations, in the event we decide to dispose of all or parts of our business.

 

4. TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE THE EU/EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA

We share personal data with external vendors or service providers or suppliers that we engage to perform services or functions on our behalf and under our instructions. Where these vendors are located within the UK, we ensure that they are contractually obligated to comply with the UK data protection laws.  We also ensure in our contracts with these organisations that they only process personal data in accordance with our instructions and in order to provide the agreed services and protect the integrity and confidentiality of your personal data entrusted to them.

 

We may also disclose personal data to our advisers, consultants, law enforcement and other public authorities (such as tax and social security bodies), the police, prosecutors, courts and tribunals.  All these recipients are themselves responsible to comply with the UK data protection laws.

 

Some of the vendors that we engage are located outside of the UK including in countries which have less strict, or no data protection laws, when compared to those in the UK. Whenever we transfer your information in this way, we will take steps which are reasonably necessary to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your personal data and to make sure it is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy notice. In these cases, we rely on approved data transfer mechanisms (such as standard contractual clauses) to ensure your information is subject to adequate safeguards in the recipient country.

 

You may request a copy of these agreements by contacting us using the email address in section 1.

 

5. Your Rights

You have certain rights in relation to the processing of your personal data, including to:

  • Request access to personal data about you (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you, and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request rectification, correction, or updating to any of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request personal data provided by you to be transferred in machine-readable format (“data portability”).
  • Request erasure of personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you (e.g. if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it).
  • Object to the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This right may apply where the processing of your personal data is based on the legitimate interests of Company, as explained above.
  • Withdrawal of consent. If we rely on your consent (for example, when setting cookies on your device or for direct marketing), you may withdraw your consent at any time.

 

These rights listed may be subject to various conditions under applicable data protection and privacy legislation. We will handle any request to exercise your rights in accordance with applicable law and any relevant legal exemptions. If you would like to exercise any of your rights set out above, you can contact us by emailing using the email address in section 1. You may also have the right to complain to a data protection authority if you think we have processed your personal data in a manner which is unlawful or breaches your rights. If you have such concerns we request that you initially contact us (using the contact details above) so that we can investigate, and hopefully resolve, your concerns.

 

6. Children

We may collect personal data relating to children with consent of a parent/guardian, for example if a booking is made on a child’s behalf. However, we do not otherwise knowingly solicit personal data from, or market to, children.
