"Personal Data" means any information collected and logged in a format that allows us to identify your personally, either directly (e.g. name) or indirectly (e.g. telephone number). Before you provide us with this information, we recommend you to read this document, describing our guest privacy protection policy.
What information do we collect?
We collect your Personal Data that you enter while using the Website. Personal Data may include your name, phone number, email address, duration of residence, your booking preferences, and credit card details. When you visit our Website, we may also gather information which does not directly identify you personally but may be associated with your Personal Data: IP-address, your browser type, information about operating system of your computer, geographic data, nationality, search queries you use, as well as other general information related to the use of the Internet. In respect of your booking process, we can track the methods you used to make a reservation and from which website you did that.
Personal Data Protection
LikeHome takes appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your Personal Data against malicious or accidental destruction / alteration and unauthorized access or disclosure. When you submit credit card data, SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology is used to guarantee a secure transaction.
How we use the Personal Information
- Booking Apartments. First of all, we use your Personal Data to process and administer your bookings and for your accommodation in the selected apartment.
- Helpdesk for Guests. Our helpdesk provides round-the-clock support for our guests. This information enables us to provide you with timely assistance when you need it, including assistance in finding the necessary apartments and answering your questions related to your booking.
- Guests' Feedback. To facilitate the selection of apartments for our Website users, we publish feedback written by our guests who have already used our services. If you use our services, we may send you a questionnaire or ask for your feedback about the accommodation. We can also specify your name in your feedback which we publish on the Website.
- Improving the quality of our services.
- We may use your Personal Data when we create marketing programs in order to understand your needs and preferences. For example, we may use your contact details to inform you about LikeHome special offers and new services. We can also send you regular newsletters by email. You can unsubscribe from marketing messages at any time by using the "Unsubscribe" link, which is included in each letter.
- Booking confirmation emails, messages sent during your stay and guest review emails that you receive after your departure are not marketing messages as these are part of your booking process. You will receive these even if you unsubscribe from our marketing messages. The guest review is completely optional, but will help other customers make an informed decision.
- The use of your Personal Data may be necessary when dealing with complaints, claims, as well as to respond to your requests.
- If you haven’t completed your online booking, you can get an email reminding you about your unfinished booking. We believe that this service is useful for you because it allows you to continue your reservation instead of having to look for accommodation options again.
- Fraud Detection and Prevention. We may also use your Personal Data to detect and prevent fraud and/or other illegal activities.
