The types of personal information that we process (which may vary by jurisdiction based on applicable law) include:
- your name, gender, home and work contact details, business title, date and place of birth, nationality and passport and visa information;

- information you provide regarding your marketing preferences or in the course of participating in surveys, contests or promotional offers;
- information collected through the use of closed circuit television systems, card key and other security systems; and

In these instances, information such as your country information, internet protocol ("IP") address, media access control address and other characteristics about your system or device may be automatically collected. This information may be collected for functional purposes as well as to improve your experience when using these services. This information may also be used for aggregated trend and statistical analysis, and for showing you more relevant advertisements and messages.
Most of the personal information we process is information that you or someone acting on your behalf knowingly provides to us. However, in some instances, we process personal information that we are able to infer about you based on other information you provide to us or on our interactions with you, or personal information about you that we receive from a third party.
As we operate through a global network of corporate offices, reservation and service centres, data centres and hotels, it may be necessary to transfer your information to a country outside of the country where it was originally collected or outside of your country of residence or nationality. The information that you provide to us during the course of a reservation or through our provision of other services may be transferred to any of our Kimpton/IHG-affiliated entities and hotels around the world for purposes of carrying our of facilitating these services. It will also be necessary to transfer this information to third parties, including third party service providers where applicable.
How We Use Information
Demographic and profile data is collected at our site, and we use this data in two main ways:
First, we analyse visitor information in aggregate, which means that we collect information about thousands of site visits and analyse it as a whole. This kind of study involves looking for trends among many visitors to our site, rather than analysing information about any individual visitor. Examples include researching which parts of the site are accessed most frequently or determining which products are most attractive to our users.
Second, we may use specific information you provide to help us customise our communications with you and improve our service to you when you visit any Kimpton property, to conduct market research, customer satisfaction and quality assurance surveys and to direct marketing and sales promotions. For instance, if you inform us of a room or service preference, we will attempt to satisfy that request when you visit us in the future and may send you promotions relating to that preference.
We use third parties to build and manage these communication and preference systems, and our arrangements with these third parties prohibit them from disclosing your personal information.
Specifically, subject to applicable laws, we may collect, use and disclose relevant portions of your personal information in order to:
- provide and charge for the hotel accommodation and other goods and services you purchase;
- provide you with a better, more personalised level of service;
- administer the Kimpton Karma rewards or IHG Rewards (where applicable) programme;
- fulfil contractual obligations to you, anyone involved in the process of making your travel arrangements (e.g., travel agents, group travel organisers or your employer) and vendors (e.g., credit card companies, airline operators and other loyalty programmes);
- conduct market research, customer satisfaction and quality assurance surveys, direct marketing and sales promotions;
- respond to requests for information and services;
- provide for the safety and security of staff, guests and other visitors;
- administer general record keeping; and
- meet legal and regulatory requirements
Sharing of Personal Information
We reveal Personally Identifiable Information about you to unaffiliated third parties if:
- you request or authorise it;
- the information is provided to help complete a transaction for you;
- the disclosure is done as part of a purchase, transfer or sale of services or assets (e.g., in the event that substantially all of our assets are acquired by another party, customer information may be one of the transferred assets);
- the disclosure is done as part of a changeover in management of a hotel or restaurant from Kimpton to a third party;
- the information is provided to our agents, outside vendors or service providers to perform functions on our behalf (e.g., analysing data, providing marketing assistance, providing customer service, processing orders, etc.);or
Every e-mail communication from Kimpton or its authorised agents, excepting reservation confirmations and the like, will contain clear and obvious instructions for how you can remove yourself from that mailing list ("Opt-out").
