Where is my data stored?

How long do we keep your data for?
We will only retain your personal information for as long as we need it and for the purposes we initially collected it for unless we are required to keep it for longer to comply with our legal, accounting or regulatory requirements.

In some circumstances we may carefully anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you, and we may use this anonymised information indefinitely without notifying you.
Who do we share your data with?
Analytics and search engine providers and third party data processors to assist us with the improvement and optimisation of our site.
Promotional events and marketing organisations, we do not sell data for marketing purposes, but may share your data with an event organiser. We will always tell you who we are sharing your personal data with before you enter a competition (usually on the event registration form) and you will be given the chance to opt-out if you don’t feel comfortable with this and would rather we kept your personal data to ourselves.
Prospective buyers of our business under our legitimate interest to ensure our business can be continued by the buyer.
Travel operators where we are required to provide confirmation about whether or not a guest who has booked via their platform, visited and stayed at one of our locations. We share this in order to fulfil our contractual obligations. Please note all personal data shared in this way will be subject to a contract ensuring it is kept confidential and in compliance with data protection laws. We will never share more than is necessary to provide such a confirmation – usually just your name, email and date of stay.
Third parties providing services at our venues where a guest has advised that they wish to receive the services of a third party partner or business operating within our venues, such as a restaurant operator.
