In some jurisdictions, data privacy laws may require us to obtain your consent before we disclose your information to third parties. When you consent to this Policy, you are, to the extent required and permitted under your local law, granting your consent to the transfer of your personal information to such third parties for the purpose and to the extent stated in this section and as described in Section 5 above (except, in some jurisdictions, we will ask that you grant that consent separately).
6.1 Our Agents, Service Providers, and Suppliers
Like most international hotel brands, we may outsource the processing of certain functions and/or information to third parties. When we do outsource the processing of your personal information to third parties or provide your personal information to third-party service providers, we oblige those third parties to protect your personal information in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Policy, with appropriate security measures.
6.2 Consumer Insights
Where we hold personal information about you, we may disclose this personal information to other companies that also hold information about you. These companies may combine the information in order to better understand your preferences and interests, thereby enabling them and us to serve you better.

8.3 Social Media
Our websites may also contain plug-ins and other features that integrate third-party social media platforms into our websites. You will be able to activate them manually. If you do so, the third parties who operate these platforms may be able to identify you, they may be able to determine how you use this website and they may link and store this information with your social media profile. Please consult the data protection policies of these social media platforms to understand what they will be doing with your personal data. If you activate these plug-ins and other features, you will be doing so at your own risk.
Because the security of your personal information is important to us, we require Transport Layer Security (“TLS”)
software in order to encrypt the personal information that you provide to us. When using TLS, your transmission of
personal information to us online is encrypted. You can verify whether your personal information is transmitted using
TLS encryption by confirming the symbol of a closed lock or solid key inside your browser address bar. You can also
verify that your personal information will be encrypted using TLS 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/or 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 to the fullest extent permitted by law. Where 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.
8.5 Minor Children
Our websites do not sell products or services for purchase by children and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from children. If you are under the age of 18 (or a minor in the jurisdiction in which you are accessing our websites), you may only use our websites with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
You may always choose what personal information (if any) you wish to provide to us. However, if you choose not to
provide certain details, some of your experiences with us may be affected (for example, we cannot take a reservation
without a name).
If you provide us with your contact details (e.g., postal address, email address, telephone number or fax number), we may contact you to let you know about the products, services, promotions and events offered that we think you may be interested in, to the extent permitted by applicable law. We may also share your personal information with carefully-selected third parties, who may communicate directly with you, to the extent permitted by applicable law. In some jurisdictions, data privacy laws may require us to obtain a separate consent before we do so. You can always choose whether or not to receive any or all of these communications by contacting us as described in Section 14 below or following the “unsubscribe” instructions contained in the communications.
In some jurisdictions, in addition to you consenting to this Policy, data privacy laws may require us to obtain a separate consent before we send you information that you have not specifically requested. In certain circumstances, your consent may be implied (e.g., where communications are required in order to fulfil your requests and/or where you have volunteered information for use by us). In other cases, we may seek your consent expressly in accordance with applicable laws (e.g., where the information collected is regarded to be Sensitive Personal Information under local regulations). We will abide by any request from you not to send you direct marketing materials. When such a request is received, your contact details will be "suppressed" rather than deleted. This will ensure that your request is recorded and retained unless you provide a later consent that overrides it.
