myHotel Privacy and Personal Data Policy
1. General Aspects
myHotel ensures the maximum confidentiality and protection of personal data (the “Personal Data”) and the due confidentiality of confidential information that companies and/or individuals who have entered into contracts with myHotel (“Clients”), enter into our application and/or website when contracting the services offered in the application or using the website. For this purpose, myHotel has developed this privacy and personal data protection policy (the “Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy”).
Terms that are not defined here are in the myHotel Terms and Conditions at: www.myhotel.cl/terminos-y-condiciones.
myHotel provides Customers with the appropriate technical resources to make them aware of this Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy and any other information that may be relevant, with the entry of Personal Data or confidential information on the website/application constituting the express manifestation of their consent to this Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy.
For the use of the application and/or platform, the Client must provide the information required during the registration process, which must be accurate, updated, complete and reliable.
For this purpose, the Client undertakes to update as soon as possible any information that for any reason no longer reflects his or her actual situation. Thus, myHotel reserves the right to request any background information it deems pertinent to verify its data.
myHotel may collect, analyze and use the information it obtains from users and Customers, as a collective whole. Thus, it can determine statistical reports in relation to the queries made. Such information, which will only be used in anonymous and aggregated form, may be disclosed to myHotel’s business partners.
The processing of Personal Data carried out by myHotel may result in the discovery of new Personal Data, not originally provided by the user and/or the Client, which will be governed in their processing by this same Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy.
Personal Data are stored in myHotel’s records or databases, which are not accessible to the public. However, myHotel is empowered to hire third parties for the processing and analysis of Personal Data, who will act as agents in accordance with the law. myHotel has adopted and will adopt the legally required levels of security and protection of Personal Data, and has installed and will install all the technical means and measures within its reach. However, users and Clients must take into consideration that security levels on the Internet are not perfect, so myHotel cannot guarantee the total and absolute inviolability of its Database, nor the perfect functioning of its protection and safeguarding mechanisms.
In this sense, users and Clients, when contracting the services offered by myHotel, declare that they are aware that the information they provide to myHotel will form part of the Data Base, authorizing myHotel to use said Data Base for the due provision of the services.
myHotel may use the Personal Data to send commercial or advertising communications by e-mail or other messaging systems, subject to Article 28 B of Law No. 19.496 on the Protection of the Rights of Consumers of the Republic of Chile.
To this effect, the Clients declare that they have been expressly authorized by their clients to share personal information with myHotel in order for the latter to comply with the purpose of its services, all in accordance with the regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In this way, the Client undertakes to indemnify myHotel and its partners, shareholders, representatives and dependents from any damages resulting – including defense costs – from any unlawful act or fact attributable to the Client in the event that the Client does not have the corresponding authorizations.
