Restaurant and B&B Bookings
When you make a reservation at our restaurant or b&b, we will ask you to provide us with personal information, including your name and contact details (such as your mobile number and email address). This information is collected and held by us so that we can identify you and make contact with you if required.

For what purpose do we collect, hold, use, and disclose your personal information?
The purpose for which we collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information depends on how and why that information was originally gathered by us from you. We will not collect, hold, use or disclose your personal information other than for the purpose for which it was collected, for a purpose which is reasonably apparent at the time we collect it or as otherwise required or specifically permitted by law.
Your personal information may be collected, held, used or disclosed for various purposes, including the following:
The provision of goods or services
We will often use your personal information when providing you with specific goods or services. This may be to verify your identity following certain requests (such as confirming a restaurant booking or processing a payment) as well as offering you other support services. In some situations, your information may be disclosed to our contractors and service providers, but only to the extent necessary to operate our business or provide you with the product or service you have requested.
In certain circumstances, the personal information we collect from you will be used in our marketing campaigns and for the purposes of marketing our business. This includes, but is not limited to, sending you tailored newsletters, promotions and updates that you have opted to receive via post, email or mobile device. Any marketing material sent by us to you will include the ability for you to opt-out of receiving any future marketing material if you choose to do so.
We may also use a range of services offered by third parties such as Facebook and Google to generate reports on visitation data and other marketing trends which will help us deliver you tailored internet-based advertisements that are better suited to your interests.
Your personal details will be collected and held by us when you participate in any promotions or competitions that we hold. These details are required both for identification purposes, so that you can claim your prize, and so that we can contact you in the event that you have won a prize. Please be aware that if you have opted out of receiving marketing or promotional material, but have won a prize in a competition, we will still contact you.
How can you access and, if necessary, change or correct your personal information?
You may request details of the personal information that we hold about you. This can be done by submitting a Privacy Act Request Form and appropriate identification - either in person at one of our properties or electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. In most cases, we will provide you with access to your personal information within 20 working days, and you will have the opportunity to correct or update that information if needed.
If we are unable to provide you with access to your personal information, we will explain the reason for this. If you are not satisfied with our response to any request for details of your personal information, you may contact our Chief Privacy Officer or the Office of the Privacy Commissioner.
