Once we have agreed a booking with you we will ask you to fill in our online booking form. This contains name, email, telephone (home, work, mobile) departure date from UK, number of adults in group, number of children in group, where airport transfers will be from, how you heard about Alpine Chaingang and finally guest details. Guest details asked for are the name, room type required and dietary requirements. All this information is required for us to successfully allocate, process and secure the booking. The information comes to us in the form of an email. If the booking is accepted, we take the data from the email and add it to the relevant week’s booking spreadsheet which is stored securely in our internal systems. Additional information will be added to the booking sheet during the run-up to the booking with any subsequent information you provide us. For our records we keep details of the bookings for 7 years after your holiday. After this time all detail is deleted permanently.

This information is deleted by the transfer personnel after the transfer has been completed.

Cookie control can be used to prevent this (see cookie section above).
We hold client names and emails on our enewsletter mailing list. Prior to 22nd May 2018 we have collected email address information from existing clients and contacts who have all expressed an interest in hearing about our services. We have never used purchased data or passed our contacts to a third party. We have always had a visible unsubscribe button on our enewsletters and stop sending newsletters when a user unsubscribes. As we have approached the implementation of the GDPR, we have conducted a thorough review and cleansing of our database of mailing list contacts and have since determined that we can continue to market to the remaining contacts under the lawful basis of ‘Legitimate Interest’.
Moving ahead into the future, rest assured, you will still receive the same service and communications just as you have always done, and your data will always continue to be held securely and treated with our absolute care and respect. You will have the right to unsubscribe at any time and can request information about (or correction/deletion of) the data we hold about you.
