Retention: how long we store your personal information

The business keeps the different types of personal information we hold for different periods depending on why and how the business is holding and using such data. Our retention periods are as follows:

Where we are holding your personal information on our mailing database or as part of our loyalty schemes for so long as you wish to continue to be part of our mailing list or loyalty scheme (as applicable) or if you have not engaged with us (made an enquiry, reservation, opened an email, clicked-through from an email, used your loyalty card etc) for 24 months. Even if we no longer send mailings to you or remove you from our loyalty scheme, we may keep your name and email address on a separate repression list for several years following this to ensure our mailings are not inadvertently shared with you.

Where we are holding your personal data to enable us to carry out a reservation for six months following the date such reservation has been completed (i.e. The date on which your table is booked with us) unless you have chosen to join our mailing list (in which case the personal data will be held for so long as you wish to be part of our mailing list).

Where we hold your personal data for payment processing reasons (such as confirming a booking where necessary), such personal data will be retained strictly by Payment Card Industry Data Security standards and held securely on an external server (never in the hotel).

Where we are holding your personal data for customer service reasons or to deal with an enquiry you have submitted for such period as is necessary to ensure that your query has been dealt with thoroughly and adequately by our usual standards (this will typically be around thirty days following the date of collection).
