Restructure and sale

If this happens we will let you know and your data may be shared with such company and processed as set out in this notice.

For example, to follow your instructions, comply with a legal duty or to work with or receive services from our service providers who we use to help run your accounts and our services.
If we do transfer information outside of the EEA, we will make sure that it is protected by using one of these safeguards:
• Transfer it to a non-EEA country with privacy laws that give the same protection as the EEA. Some countries have been deemed adequate by the EU.
• Put in place a contract with the recipient that means they must protect it to the same standards as the EEA or use other mechanisms and measures to achieve adequate protection. We also may use the Standard Contractual Clauses published by the EU.
• Transfer it to organisations that are part of Privacy Shield. This framework sets privacy standards for data sent between EU countries and the US. It makes sure those standards are similar to what is used within the EEA.
• Binding corporate rules. These are internal rules adopted by group companies to allow international transfers of personal data to entities within the same corporate group located in countries which do not provide an adequate level of protection.
If you apply for a Business Account a separate Privacy Notice will also apply. Further information is available by contacting us by telephone directly on 01908 562332.
Significant automated decision-making
Like many businesses we use business rules on financial and other information in order to detect and prevent fraud. When used, these may identify a risk and, as a result, a particular transaction may not be processed.
What rights do I have?
Withdrawing consent or otherwise objecting to direct marketing.
Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent. We will continue to process your personal data for other purposes on a different lawful basis (other than consent) where that applies.
In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent where we rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing and any profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by clicking on the 'unsubscribe' link located in the footer of every marketing email or text.

• You have the right to ask that we erase or restrict (stop active) processing of your personal data.
• In addition, you can object to the processing where the lawful basis is our legitimate interests.
These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person or you ask us to erase information which we are required by law to keep. Where you object to us processing personal information we may have a compelling justification for processing it. Relevant exemptions are also included within the data protection laws that apply in the UK. We will inform you of relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make.

How long will you retain my personal data?
We keep your data to enable us to fulfil our contract with you or to provide services, where required by law, to respond to a question or complaint, to obey rules about keeping records, to uphold or protect contractual or legal rights or where it is in your or another party’s vital interests or our legitimate interests. Where we process personal data on the basis of your consent, we will retain it only for as long as required for the specified purpose. We also keep your data in line with any statutory limitation periods and for tax, legal or regulatory purposes.
The period for which we will retain your personal data depends on the purposes for which we are processing it and where the same personal data is processed for two or more purposes, we will retain it for the longest period. For example, we retain:
• CCTV recording for up to 31 days;
• for up to 1 year incoming and outgoing voice recordings (although we will keep a record of any consent you give us during a call for as long as we rely on it as the lawful basis for processing);
• for up to 25 months from your last stay, any personal data we process for managing your hotel or restaurant bookings;
• for up to 36 months after it is resolved, any personal data we process in relation to queries, complaints or feedback (other than market research surveys) relating to your hotel or restaurant booking;
• until a period of 3 years has elapsed since your last interaction with us, personal data we process for marketing (including profiling) purposes, unless you ask us to stop sending electronic direct marketing, in which case we will act on your request, and then keep a record of your request indefinitely;
• for 3 years in the case of accident report forms (or for accidents relating to a child, for 3 years after the child’s 18th birthday);
• for up to 6 years from your last stay or access to your account, any personal data in an account you have set up with us, for example a My Kingfisher Account or Business Booker Account;
• for up to 6 years, financial and transactional data for the purposes of insights and analytics; and
• for up to 7 years, financial information for accounting, business reporting, analysis and audit purposes.
In any of the cases mentioned above, we may retain the personal data for longer, if it is required for the purposes of any internal or external investigation or litigation. In these cases, it may be retained until the matter is resolved. We may keep your data for longer in line with any limitation periods, or if we cannot delete it, e.g. for tax, legal or regulatory reasons.
You have the qualified right to request deletion of your personal data at any time, or we may choose or be obliged to erase your personal data earlier, for example if we no longer need to process it.
