Our policy determines the type of personal data that we collect and process, reasons for processing them, retention period, and the safety measures we take against misuse of personal data, as well as procedures you should follow if you have any questions or requests regarding your personal data.
Aminess processes the following categories of personal data:
- contact information and other personal data,
- account and spending information,
- access control system information,
- video materials,
- audio materials and
- website usage information.
Aminess processes your personal data for the following purposes:
When you send us a booking request, we record your first and last name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and other information that we need in order to give you feedback on available accommodation units.
We ensure the highest level of data security for users of our booking system. For verification of authenticity of our websites and for a secure data transfer between your computer and our servers, we use an SSL certificate issued by a reputable provider, as well as encryption of communication. All personal data, personal document and credit card numbers, as well as numbers related to other payment methods that users provide us with through the booking system, are transferred only via connections encrypted according to applicable international standards.
After a booking is successfully confirmed, we still process data in order to fulfil our legal obligation of registering guests through the eVisitor national centre for guest records, as well as in order to provide our services and improve their quality. That is why, in addition to the aforementioned information, we also record the number, date and place of issue of your ID, as well as your nationality, country of residence, date and place of birth. To enable vehicles to be parked in our designated areas, we also record and process vehicle license plates.
In order to personalise our service and make your stay as comfortable as possible, we also record your ID photo on the basis of legitimate interests for improving the quality of our service.
Notifications about services
We will also, for a limited time, process your data for the purpose of sending you notifications about our services, special offers, deals, discounts, and news about our facilities for which we believe you have shown clear interest and which we consider the be fulfilling our legitimate interests.
You can object to this processing of your data and stop receiving such messages by selecting the appropriate option in a received message at any time.
Questionnaires and surveys
We use questionnaires and surveys to collect information regarding your satisfaction with our hotel and camping services. Participating in questionnaires is completely voluntary, and so is submitting personal data in physical questionnaires available in our facilities. We also use the collected information and collated research results to adapt our services to your needs and wishes.
We organise giveaways and other contests from time to time. Personal data collected through these contests is processed only in order to carry out the giveaway or the contest (e.g. publish the names of winners, contact winners, deliver prizes, etc.). In order for you to be able to participate in a giveaway or a contest, we require your first and last name, e-mail address, phone number, and shipping address to deliver the prize. We will delete the data collected once 30 days have passed from the announcement of the winners.
Processing complaints and resolving inquiries
