PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
We collect information unique to you as an individual, such as name, address, age, gender, birthdate, passport details, image, and credit card information.
We collect and use personal information if you make a booking through www.meritushotels.com, stay at any Meritus-managed hotel, purchase Meritus vouchers from Meritus Trove®, or become a member of any of our loyalty programmes such as Meritus Rewards® and Life and Style by Meritus®.
We may also collect information through our third party service providers' use of technologies such as tracking tools, heatmap tools, analytic tools, and other similar technologies.
Our primary goal in collecting your personal information is to serve you better. This includes communicating with you on relevant products, services, and offers, as well as accommodating your requests and enquiries, whether it is about a room reservation or about our loyalty programmes. We may also contact you for feedback after the provision of our services.
Your personal data may be used for purposes connected or relevant to our business, such as, amongst others:
- complying with our legal obligations and requirements;
- enforcing obligations owed to us;
- research into the development of new products and services or improvement of our existing products and services;
- accounting, risk management and record keeping;
- carrying out research, planning and statistical analysis; and
- staff training.
If you have consented, we may use your personal data for the purposes of marketing our products and services (including hotels, restaurants, and loyalty programmes by Meritus), and those of our strategic partners and business associates for marketing and communication purposes, e.g., informing you of our latest activities, special offers and promotions. In order for us to market products and services which are of special interest and relevance to you, we may analyse and rely on your overall interaction with us (such as, but not limited to, your participation in promotions or events and your interactions with us).
If you have contacted us with any complaints, feedback, comments or suggestions, we may use and disclose your personal data (including your contact history) to respond to you.
When using your personal data to contact you for the above purposes, we may contact you via regular mail, fax, e-mail, SMS, telephone, social media, or any other means.
