WHEN DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We believe that a good customer experience means:
· Providing you with the products and services you want
· Giving you relevant information about our company, brands, products and special offers
To do these things well, we need to process some of your personal data. We do this whenever:
· you use our websites
· we need to verify your age
· you book a room
· you make a payment or request a refund
· you use our Wi-Fi service
· you use our gift cards
· you submit queries, compliments or complaints
· we record CCTV images
· an accident occurs
We don’t keep your personal data for any longer than we need it. See our Data Protection Policy for more details.
We do not share your personal data with other companies. We will not sell your personal data. We might need to share your personal data to uphold your rights, our rights or the rights of other people and we may need to share your personal data to meet some of our legal obligations.
Under certain circumstances, data protection laws in relation to your personal data allow the right to:
Request access to your personal data (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 correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your 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 your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally, it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In such cases, we will notify you and keep you updated.

DATA PROTECTION POLICY
Henrietta House collects and uses information about people with whom it communicates. This personal information must be dealt with properly and securely, however it is collected, recorded and used – whether on paper, in a computer or recorded on other materials – and there are safeguards to ensure this is compliant with the Data Protection Act. Henrietta House regards the lawful and correct treatment to personal information as very important to the successful and efficient performance of its functions, and to maintain confidence between those with whom it deals. To this end Henrietta House fully endorses and adheres to the principles of Data Protection set out in the General Data Protection Regulations 2018.
The purpose of this policy is to ensure that the staff of Henrietta House, Bath, is clear about the purpose and principles of Data Protection and to ensure that it has guidelines and procedures in place which are consistently followed.
Failure to adhere to these guidelines and procedures is unlawful and could result in legal action being taken against Henrietta House or its staff.
The General Data Protection Regulations regulate the processing of information relating to living and identifiable individuals (data subjects). This includes the obtaining, holding, using or disclosing of such information, and covers computerised records as well as manual filing systems and card indexes.
Data users must comply with the data protection principles of good practice which underpin the GDPR. To comply with the law, information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed to any other person unlawfully.
To do this Henrietta House, Bath follows the eight Data Protection Principles as out lined in the GDPR , which are summarised below:
I. Personal data will be processed fairly and lawfully
II. Data will only be collected and used for specified purposes
III. Data will be adequate, relevant and not excessive
IV. Data will be accurate and up to date
V. Data will not be held any longer than necessary
VI. Data subjects’ rights will be respected
VII. Data will be kept safe from unauthorised access, accidental loss or damage
VIII. Data will not be transferred to a country outside the European Economic Area, unless that country has equivalent levels of protection for personal data.
The principles apply to “personal data” which is information held on the computer or in manual filing systems from which they are identifiable. Henrietta House employees, who process or use any personal information in the course of their duties will ensure that these principles are followed at all times.
The following procedures have been developed in order to ensure that Henrietta House meets its responsibilities in terms of Data Protection. For the purposes of these procedures data collected, stored and used by Henrietta House falls into 2 broad categories:
1. Henrietta House internal data records; Staff & Contractors
2. Henrietta House external data records; clients.
Henrietta House, as a body is a DATA CONTROLLER under the Act.
External data records

This data is obtained, stored and processed solely to assist staff in the efficient running of services. Personal details supplied are only used to send material that is potentially useful. Most of this information is stored on the organisation’s database.
Henrietta House obtains personal data and information from clients in order to provide services. This data is stored and processed only for the purposes outlined in the agreement and service specification agreed by the client either online or by direct phone call.
Personal data is collected over the phone and by other methods such as e-mail. During this initial contact, the data owner is given an explanation of how this information will be used.
Written consent is not requested as it is assumed that informed consent has been granted when an individual freely gives their own details to secure the reservation/receive services.
Personal data will not be passed on to anyone outside the organisation with exception for contracted Data processing companies, without explicit consent from the data owner. This will not be made unless there is a legal duty of disclosure under other legislation, in which case the Henrietta House management will make disclosure.

All confidential post must be opened by the addressee only.
Henrietta House will take reasonable steps to keep personal data up to date and accurate.
If a request is received from an organisation/individual to destroy their records, we will remove their details from the database and request that all staff holding paper or electronic details for the organisation destroy them.
Personal data may be kept in paper-based systems and on a password-protected computer system. Staff are required to not pass any passwords to any unauthorised individuals and lock the computer when not in use. Henrietta House personnel must report any suspicious computer behaviour and not install any software.
