We collect, store and in other permitted ways process your personal data for the following purposes.


At the time of booking accommodation and other services, we collect your personal data in order to conclude an agreement for accommodation and other services, especially to contact you (e.g. phone/mobile phone number, email address) or unambiguously link the booking with you and other guests traveling with you (e.g. name and surname, date of birth, number of guests, date of arrival, date of departure).

Without these data we cannot conclude an agreement for accommodation and other services.

As an exception, when the booking is made on our partners' website, we collect the above-mentioned data and other data that our partner determines to be mandatory and without which the contract cannot be concluded.


At the time of your check-in at the facility, we collect and process your personal data in order to comply with our legal obligations under the regulations on the manner of keeping tourist registers and the form of tourist registration.

According to the currently valid regulations, we are obliged to collect the following data: surname and name, place, country and date of birth, citizenship, type and number of identity document, place of residence (temporary residence) and address, date and time of arrival to and departure from the facility, gender, note (basis for exemption from the sojourn tax payment, i.e. for reducing the sojourn tax payment).

We cannot provide the accommodation service without these data.

Booking and check-in

At the time of booking and check-in, you can also provide us with additional data that will help us personalise the service we provide and further arrange your contractual relationship regarding accommodation and other services.

For this purpose, we collect and process data which are marked as optional on our websites and our partners' websites advertising our facilities, such as the flight number, accommodation preferences (e.g. smoking room), vegetarian menu, allergies, bed preferences, pillow preferences, etc.

Without these data, accommodation and other services will be provided, but the provided accommodation and services will not necessarily have additional quality and content that depend on these data.

Technical and security measures

During your stay at our facility, we apply technical and security measures (e.g. video surveillance in the public areas of the facility that can record you, card keys that can show your location, etc.) to protect you and your property, other guests and their property, our employees and our property.

The application of technical and security measures that exist in some of our facilities cannot be discontinued at the request of a particular guest.

Marketing and customer satisfaction surveys

We collect and process your data so that we can contact you for promotional (marketing) purposes or for the purpose of assessing customer satisfaction concerning our services (surveys and such), in accordance with your consent.

Promotion, for example, implies making special and personalized offers and services (e.g. newsletters).


When you participate in our competitions, we collect dana, in accordance with your consent, required by the rules of the competition as a precondition for participation and data which are necessary for the fulfilment of your contractual rights and our contractual obligations in the event of you winning a prize.

Statistical analysis for internal purposes

We process your personal data for statistical purposes in order to collect information about our business and our services. Data are processed so as not to allow your identification (so-called depersonalized data).

Legitimate interest

The General Regulation (GDPR) provides for our right (legitimate interest) to process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing and profiling regarding such marketing, to the extent which is not contrary to your interests, freedoms and rights.

However, in order to ensure a more complete protection of your personal data, rights and interests, before processing your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, we will seek to ask your explicit consent for such processing.


The personal data we are obliged to collect at the time of a guest’s check-in is sent electronically to the eVisitor system, according to the regulations on the manner of keeping tourist registers and the form of tourist registration.

Your personal data are sent to our contractual processors that provide us with service management computer programs that have access to these data only to the extent necessary for the proper functioning of the program and to other processors that enable us to provide hospitality and tourist services. Also, your data are sent to other Controllers if it is necessary for the provision of accommodation services or other services (e.g. if you have booked a travel transfer service provided by our contracting partner with the accommodation service).

Your personal data are communicated or made available to third parties in other cases as well, but only when we are obliged to do so under the General Regulation (GDPR), for example at the request of a competent judicial or administrative body.


We store your data:

for the period prescribed by the applicable regulations, if such data are collected solely for the purpose of fulfilling our legal obligations:
- for example, the data from the guestbook must be kept at least 2 years after the expiration of the calendar year during which the guest stayed at our facility, and such data must be kept for 10 years in the eVisitor system;
- in addition, according to accounting regulations we are obliged to keep the issued invoices and the personal data contained therein for 11 years.

for the duration required for the expiry of statutory limitation period (three or five years) and for an additional reasonable period needed for your request submitted to a judicial or administrative body to be delivered to us, provided that such data are obtained solely in connection with the contracts we have concluded with you or about which we have negotiated (for example, data contained in booking requests/reservation inquiries and booking confirmations, data regarding loyalty program membership, participation in competitions, etc.);

until you withdraw your consent if we base the processing of your data on your consent;

10 years if the processing is based on our legitimate interests;

6 months (tapes - surveillance).

If you feel that we have collected or otherwise processed your data contrary to the General Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to request erasure of such data. In case the request is well founded, the data will be erased without undue delay.

You have the right to receive the personal data you provided us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transfer them to another controller if the processing of these data are based on consent or agreement and is carried out automatically.

That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, considering the complexity and number of the requests. The controller shall inform the data subject of any such extension within one month of receipt of the request, together with the reasons for the delay. If the controller does not take action on the request of the data subject, the controller shall inform the data subject without delay and at the latest within one month of receipt of the request of the reasons for not taking action and on the possibility of lodging a complaint with a supervisory authority and seeking a judicial remedy.


We use your data (name and surname, email) to personalize our services and marketing materials and tailor them according to your preferences. We personalize services and materials by profiling (e.g. segmentation) that help us better understand your interests. Profiling does not limit your choice of services we provide.

We apply automated decision-making in such a way that, depending on the profiling or data you provide, a computer program sends you an offer and/or promotional (marketing) material without any human intervention. The described automated decision-making does not limit your choice of services we provide.
