Peymans is a Controller for the personal information that it collects and uses about you and a Processor for some data referred to us by any Third Party who you would have allowed, or enabled to use your data for a lawful purpose relating to our services. We will always treat your personal information as confidential and your personal information will only be shared with others in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

This Privacy Notice explains:
If we need to change the way in which your personal information is used by us, this Privacy Notice will be updated and if the changes are significant, we will advise you.
Personal information is any information that, on its own identifies you, or can be put together with any other either information, can identify you or tell us something about you. This could include information such as name, email address, other contact details, date of birth, bank account details or any information about your needs or circumstances.
Some personal information is classified as “special” data under data protection legislation. This includes information relating to health, racial or ethnic origin, religious beliefs or political opinions and sexual orientation. This information is more sensitive, and we need to have further justifications for collecting, storing and using this type of personal information.
Any references to personal information in this privacy notice will include personal data, and where relevant, special categories of personal data.
Much of the personal information we process is information that you or someone acting on your behalf knowingly provides to us.
On this site, “Peymans”, “our” and “we” each mean any permanent Peymans Office or temporary location being used as such, in the United Kingdom, which collects and use your information in the manner set out in this Privacy Notice.

This includes information you provide when you search for a serviced apartment, book a serviced apartment on our site and when you report a problem with our site. The information you give us at this point is likely to include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number, financial and credit card information, special requirements such as those relating to any disability or medical condition which may affect the chosen arrangements and dietary restrictions (which may disclose your religious beliefs).
When you make a booking via our partner property management system – who then process this Data on our behalf you can be assured that this is via a secure https:// connection and any details provided are stored securely in the booking system. During this process, as a guest, you would create an account which you can login to and see details of reservations, as well as your data which is held there. This can be edited by you, giving you control.
The types of personal information that we may collect, receive and process, includes:
With regard to each of your visits to our site we may automatically collect the following information:
We may receive information about you if you use a website that we either operate or which directly processes Data on our behalf, via the other services we provide. We work closely with many third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers) and therefore we may receive information about you from them.
We will only request as much Data from you that we require at certain stages in our business processes. This is good practice in GDPR terms.
We use information held about you in the following ways:
We will use this information:
We will use this information:
We may combine this information with information you give to us and information we collect about you. We may use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive).
In addition, if we are providing a service to you, or on your behalf, where we are required to do so by law, we may request a copy of your passport.
Because the security of your personal information is important to us, Secured Socket Layer (“SSL”) software is used on our booking platform ‘Elina’ to encrypt the personal information that you provide to us. If your browser is SSL enabled (which most are), your transmission of personal information to this platform online will be encrypted. You can verify whether your personal information is transmitted using SSL encryption by confirming the symbol of a closed lock or solid key on the bottom bar of your browser window. Different browsers may use different symbols. You can also verify that your personal information will be encrypted using SSL encryption by making sure that the prefix for the web address listed for that page has changed from “http” to “https”. If you do not see the appropriate symbol and the “https” prefix, you should not assume that the personal information that you are being asked to provide will be encrypted prior to transmission.
The personal information we collect from you online is stored by us and/or our service providers on databases protected through a combination of physical and electronic access controls, firewall technology and other reasonable security measures. Nevertheless, such security measures cannot prevent all loss, misuse or alteration of personal information and we are not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to any such incidents fully permitted by law.
Where it has come to our attention and is required under law, we will notify you of any such loss, misuse or alteration of personal information that may affect you so that you can take the appropriate actions for the due protection of your rights.

We will always make sure that your data is secure and subject to the same protection as if it was being processed in the European Economic Area.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. However, whilst you can rely on Peymans to ensure that we will do our best to protect your personal data, you should be aware that any transmission of such data is always at your own risk.
