2. Collection of Personal Information
Personal information is generally defined as information or an opinion that can identify a person. The types of personal information collected by The Westend Market Hotel will depend on the relationship you may have with us. For example, we may require certain specific information about you should you apply for employment with us (eg employment or training history) which is different from the information you supply if you are entering a competition or joining a loyalty program. We will only collect information from you directly and from your use of our products and services.
3. Use and Disclosure
The Westend Market Hotel will only use or disclose personal information for the purpose which was either specified or reasonably apparent at the time of collection. We may also use or disclose it for any other related purpose for which you would reasonably expect it to be used. The Westend Market Hotel may also use your personal information to send marketing or promotional material to you, unless you indicate to us that you do not wish to receive it. The Westend Market Hotel does not generally disclose personal information to third parties except: . where third party contractors appointed by The Westend Market Hotel require access to personal information held by us to perform services for us or on our behalf; . where The Westend Market Hotel is required or authorised by law; or . with your consent. Should third parties be given access to personal information in such a case, The Westend Market Hotel requires that our contractors are obliged to keep that personal information confidential and not to use or disclose it for any purpose other than performing services for us or on our behalf.
