Processing and security of personal data

When you make a booking to stay, we need certain data from you. We also process data in other cases, such as information requests, the administration of competitions and when visiting our websites. In doing so we also use the services of third parties who receive specific personal data and process these on behalf of Le Vald’Arimont. This occurs, for instance, for the purpose of sending brochures and e-mailings or the processing of our guest surveys. When you make a booking, your data are obviously shared with the park where you will be staying.

What do we want to know about you?

Surname, first name and gender
We would like to use your personal data to address you personally at the park and also in our further communication. These data are obviously also required to register your booking.

Address and place of residence
We send most of the booking data to you by e-mail. However, we do send some information to your home address.

Telephone number
We may need to contact you about your booking. We will give you a call if there are any questions and may, for example, send you a text message if your bungalow is available earlier. We may call you before arrival or after your stay to ask if everything is clear and whether everything went well.

Date of birth
The person who books accommodation at Le Val d’Arimont must be at least 18 years old. Inaddition, tourist tax may be based on the age of the persons staying in the accommodation. We therefore need your date of birth. Should you or someone in your travel party have a birthday during your stay, then we will try to help you celebrate and we may add something extra.

Payment details
We have a secure payment environment for you to pay for your booking. When paying with iDeal or bank transfer, your data will be stored in our records to enable your payment to be linked to your booking. Besides that, we will only use your bank account number when you receive money from us. When paying by credit card, we will send your credit card details directly to our credit card partner from our secure environment. They execute our credit card payments. During this process we will not see your credit card details. Our partner only tells us if your payment has been successful.

IP address
We may look at your IP address on the internet. We remember your preferences and this allows us to give you appropriate advice.

E-mail address
You will receive an e-mail about your reservation, invoice and bookings. Newsletters will also be sent to you by e-mail. If you prefer not to receive newsletters and offers, you can easily unsubscribe via the link in the newsletter.

Furthermore, we use your information for the following:

Guest Service
You can call, e-mail and contact us via social media. We store your data to avoid you having to provide it again. We analyse all contact moments to make our service a little better every day.
Your data will be forwarded to organisations that perform activities in connection with your booking. This also includes parties that are not part of the Le Val d’Arimont organisation. For example, the cleaningcompany or the insurance company if you have taken out travel or cancellation insurance.

Your Le Val d’Arimont account can include your personal data. Name, postal and invoicing address, date of birth, telephone number and login details. This is convenient and means that you do not need to re- enter this data every time. We also keep information about your previous bookings. This allows us to help you faster and more accurately.

You may receive newsletters and other offers from us. Their content is based on your interests and past bookings, and in some cases on information from other companies. If you prefer not to receive newsletters and offers, you can always unsubscribe via the link in the newsletter. You can also let us know bysending a note to: Le Val d’Arimont B.V., Chemin du Val 30, 4960 Malmedy BELGIUM or by sending an e-mail.

Reviews and guest survey
You can help other guests with your review. Sharing experiences gives others abetter picture of Le Val d’Arimont. The responses you provide in our guest survey are reviewed by us to furtherimprove our services. In that context, we may also share your responses and data with our parks and partners, such as cleaning service providers. You may also be contacted based on a completed survey, for example, to ask additional questions or to thank you for your feedback.

We may sometimes approach you about taking part in a guest survey or a place on our guest panel. Additionally, we are also interested in knowing how a complaint has been handled and what you think of our newsletter. Therefore we collect information on guest behaviour. This allows us to analyse your reading behaviour and provide content that suits your needs. We do this by registering unique visits and all the activities that take place during this visit, such as viewing pages, zooming in on something or clicking on links. Sometimes a third party performs these checks for us.

Special offers
If you participated in a special offer, we may contact you and inform you if you have won. We also use this data to analyse our special offers. This means that they will be even more attractive next time. 

Customised advice

We search for you and provide you with nice offers, for example by e-mail. We may also link your email address to your use of the website. For instance, we may send you a reminder if you have not finished making your booking. We also use your information to improve our services and websites. Furthermore, we will use your data to show you useful advertisements such as on Facebook and Twitter and other online media platforms. Cookies play a role in this. We may have your data compared or combined with data known to other companies in order to match information and offers with your interests as much as possible. Insofar as we are required to do so by law, Le Val d’Arimont requests your consent before sendingyour data to third parties.
