Your personal information is important to us
"Personal information" is information that identifies you or could identify you. The types of personal information we collect may include your name, address, contact phone number, email address, date of birth, passport and visa information, transaction information and financial details. We may also keep a record of products and services that you acquire from us.
Where the personal information requested includes an email address and/or mobile phone number, Waldorf Apartment Hotels will only contact you by email or SMS if you agree to being contacted in this manner.
Waldorf Apartment Hotels use of "cookies"
Cookies themselves do not contain personal information about you. They simply operate as a unique identifier which helps us to know what our customers find interesting and useful on our websites, almost like a continuing questionnaire. Waldorf Apartment Hotels does not store any personal information inside cookies, although the cookie may identify the user's browser.
