What kind of personal information does Palheiro Nature Estate collect?

If you would like more specific information, here's an in-depth view of the information we collect.

- Personal information you give to us

Palheiro Nature Estate collects and uses information that you provide to us. When you make a reservation, you're (as a minimum) asked for your name and email address. We might also ask for your home address, telephone number, payment information, the names of any guests travelling with you, and any preferences you might have for your stay.

If you need to get in touch with our customer service team, or reach out to us through another avenue (such as on social media, or communicating with your booked accommodations on our site), we'll collect information from you there, too. After a stay, guests can be asked to provide a review to help ensure future guests get exactly what they're looking for.

- Personal information you give us about others

Of course you might not just be booking accommodations for yourself. Maybe you're travelling with other guests whose details you provide as part of the reservation, or you might make a reservation on behalf of someone else. However, now we should point out that it's your responsibility to ensure that the person or people you've provided personal information about are aware that you've done so, and have accepted how Palheiro Nature Estate uses their information (as described in this Privacy Statement).

- Personal information we collect automatically

When you visit our websites or apps certain information may automatically be collected. This includes your IP address, the date and time you accessed our services, the hardware, software or internet browser you use, and information about your computer's operating system, like application versions and your language settings. We might also collect information about clicks and which pages have been shown to you.

If you're using a mobile device, we might also collect data that identifies your mobile device, device-specific settings and characteristics, location details, app crashes and other system activity. When you make a reservation, our system registers through which means and from which websites you've made your reservation or entered the Palheiro Nature Estate websites and/or apps.

Why does Palheiro Nature Estate collect and use your personal data?

We use the information collected about you for various purposes. Your personal data may be used in the following ways:

- Reservations: First and most importantly, we use your personal data to complete and administer your online reservation. We may also offer you other travel-related products and services from third parties. These may be through our online services, and if you choose to utilize these, we'll use your information to complete and administer your order just as we would if you booked accommodations only.

- Marketing Activities: We use your information for marketing activities. These activities may include:

Using your contact information to send you news of Palheiro-related products and services when you make a reservation with us or set up a user account. You can unsubscribe from these marketing communications quickly, easily and anytime - just click on the "Unsubscribe" link included in every newsletter.

When you participate in other promotional activities (such as giveaways or competitions), relevant information will be used to administer these promotions.

- Communicating with you: There may be other times when we get in touch with you, including by email, mail, phone or text message - which method we choose depends on the contact information you've previously shared with us. And we process the communications you send to us.
