Data protection at the Melbourne View Hotel

Customers or Guests

The hotel stores only very limited data on it’s customers and guests. This takes the form of a name, telephone number and credit or debit card information. This information is stored potentially both on a password protected computerised accounts system and in our reservations system. Card details are also kept in the form of our retained credit / debit card slip which is attached to a copy of your invoice and stored in a locked filing cabinet. The card information we hold is limited and therefore of little use other than as a booking guarantee.

None of this information is used for any other purpose than that stated when we took it. No information is passed to third parties of any kind.
