A guest/customer/supplier may voluntarily and at his own choice provide Hotel Ansgar with additional personal data that he believes may be of importance to Hotel Ansgar's operation/servicing of the guest/customer/supplier, or that the person concerned believes should be provided for security reasons.

This can e.g. be information about:

  • Handicap
  • Allergy
  • Special food preferences
  • Other health or medicine information
  • Political/religious beliefs

If a guest/customer/supplier chooses to provide such information voluntarily and by their own choice, Hotel Ansgar perceives this as consent to be able to register and store this sensitive information about the person concerned.

In addition to the information that Hotel Ansgar receives directly from guests/customers/suppliers, Hotel Ansgar will in some cases obtain or process additional information that Hotel Ansgar has received from third parties, e.g. a travel agency, another intermediary or an employee of the company where the data subject is employed.

Where this is the case, the relevant third party is obliged to inform the relevant guests/customers/suppliers about Hotel Ansgar's terms and conditions as well as Hotel Ansgar's personal data policy. It is also the responsibility of the third party in question to ensure that there is the necessary legal basis for the collection and processing of the information in question, including obtaining any necessary consent for the processing of any sensitive information.

For orders and bookings, Hotel Ansgar stores the information provided by the guest/customer/supplier for as long as it is deemed relevant, after which the information is deleted.

In addition to handling the order, the information provided is only used if a guest/customer/supplier e.g. contact with questions or if there is an error in the order.

What is the purpose of the collection and processing?

Hotel Ansgar only collects personal data which is necessary to fulfill the agreements entered into with guests/customers/suppliers regarding the provision of services, e.g. an overnight stay, or purchase/sale of products or services.

It is the content of the individual agreement/the nature of the service that determines which personal data Hotel Ansgar collects and processes, and which determines the purpose of the collection.

The purpose of collecting and processing personal data will primarily be:

  • Processing guests'/customers' bookings and purchases of Hotel Ansgar's services.
  • Processing suppliers' offers for - and sales - of products and services.
  • Contact to the guest / customer before, during or after their stay.
  • Fulfillment of the guest's / customer's request for offers or purchases of services.
  • Improvement and development of Hotel Ansgar's services.
  • Adaptation of Hotel Ansgar's marketing and other communications.
  • Analysis of guests/customers/suppliers' user behavior and marketing towards them.
  • Adaptation of Hotel Ansgar's business partners' communication and marketing to guests/customers/suppliers.
  • Administration of guests/customers/suppliers' relationship with Hotel Ansgar, including possible participation in Danske Hotellers bonus/benefits program.
  • Compliance with legal requirements, eg. requirement to register overnight guests according to the Aliens Act and the Passport Order.

Authorization – the legal basis – for the processing

Hotel Ansgar will most often process personal data because it is necessary to fulfill an agreement with Hotel Ansgar, to which a guest/customer or a supplier is a party. This may, for example, be in connection with hotel stays, meeting arrangements and/or handling and fulfillment of cooperation and supplier agreements.

In addition, Hotel Ansgar will process personal data in connection with booking prior to an overnight stay, handling of meetings, companies, conferences, etc. and prior to entering into supplier agreements.

In some cases, Hotel Ansgar's processing of personal data will take place as part of Hotel Ansgar's pursuit of a legitimate/legal interest that precedes the interests of the guest/customer/supplier (the data subject).

Such a legitimate interest can, for example, be the preparation of statistics, customer surveys, marketing and analysis of general guest/customer behaviour, which is intended to generally improve the experience at Hotel Ansgar and the quality of Hotel Ansgar's services and products.

If a guest/customer discloses special personal preferences or considerations in connection with their stay/visit at Hotel Ansgar, including e.g. health information, disability, religious beliefs or the like, Hotel Ansgar only uses the information to ensure that the guest/customer's personal preferences, health etc. are taken into account.

In some situations, Hotel Ansgar receives personal data from third parties, e.g. a travel agency, an agent or the like, i.a. in connection with group bookings. When this happens, the relevant third party is required to inform the relevant guests/customers/suppliers about Hotel Ansgar's terms and conditions and the content of this personal data policy.

Hotel Ansgar is additionally according to law, cf. above under section 5, obliged to register various information about overnight guests. This information must be stored for a minimum of one year and a maximum of two years. 

The data subject's rights

According to the rules in the Personal Data Regulation, the registered (customers/guests/suppliers) have different rights.

  • A registered person has the right at any time to gain insight into which personal data Hotel Ansgar processes about the registered person.
  • A registered person has the right at any time to have the personal data that Hotel Ansgar has about the registered person corrected and updated.
  • A registered person has the right at any time to have the personal data that Hotel Ansgar has about the registered person deleted. If a registered person requests deletion, all the information that Hotel Ansgar is not legally obliged to store will be deleted. A deletion of the registered person's information may in some cases mean that Hotel Ansgar cannot fulfill any concluded agreements or provide certain services to the data subject.

If some of the information that Hotel Ansgar has about the data subject has been provided on the basis of the data subject's consent, the data subject has the right to withdraw consent at any time, which means that the information is deleted or no longer used by Hotel Ansgar. This does not apply to information, cf. above, which Hotel Ansgar is legally obliged to store.

The possibility to request deletion etc. may, however, be limited for reasons of the protection of other people's privacy, trade secrets and intellectual property rights, as well as e.g. for the sake of the possibility of enforcing potential legal claims.

The registered person can at any time ask Hotel Ansgar in writing to get an overview of and a copy of the personal data about the registered person that Hotel Ansgar holds.

A written request for this must be signed by the data subject and contain his name, address, telephone number, e-mail address.

The data subject can also contact Hotel Ansgar if the data subject believes that his personal data is being processed in violation of the law or in violation of other legal obligations, e.g. the agreement/contract that the data subject has with Hotel Ansgar.

Written request is sent to Hotel Ansgar, see contact information above under section 1.

Hotel Ansgar will, as far as possible, within 1 month of receiving the registered person's written request, send it to the registered person's postal address.

If the data subject requests correction and/or deletion of his personal data, Hotel Ansgar will assess whether the conditions for the request have been met, and Hotel Ansgar will, in that case, carry out changes or deletion as soon as possible.

Hotel Ansgar reserves the right to reject requests that have the character of harassing repetition or that require disproportionate technical measures (e.g. development of a new IT system) or that affect the protection of other data subjects' personal data or in other situations where it will be disproportionately resource-intensive or very complicated to meet the request.

The personal information comes partly from the applicant, but possibly also from publicly available sources (such as Facebook and LinkedIn). Hotel Ansgar does not use personal profiling to make automatic decisions that can significantly affect the applicant's rights and freedoms.

The authority to process the applicant's information is found in Article 6 of the Personal Data Regulation, letter a (consent), letter b (measures prior to entering into a contract) and letter f (protection of interests).

Hotel Ansgar can in certain cases pass on applicants' personal data if this is required by applicable legislation or a court decision.

Some of Hotel Ansgar's data processors may be located outside the EU/EEA, but all with a legal basis for transfer.

If an applicant is rejected for the applied job, Hotel Ansgar stores the applicant's application and information for up to six months after the rejection, and if other positions that match the applicant's profile become available, Hotel Ansgar can contact the applicant with for the purpose of filling this position. Applications are thus deleted after 6 months, unless the applicant in question gives permission for Hotel Ansgar to save the application for a longer period of time.

Applicants always have the right to be told what information Hotel Ansgar has about the applicant. Applicants also have the right to have their information corrected if it is not correct, just as applicants have the right to object to or request deletion or restriction of the processing of the applicant's information.

Information about employees is processed in accordance with Hotel Ansgar's personal data policy for employees, which can be found in Danske Hotellers Personnel guide.

Hotel Ansgar has taken a number of technological and organizational security measures to protect applicants' personal data against manipulation, loss, etc., as well as against others gaining unauthorized access to applicants' information. Only the employees at Hotel Ansgar, who as part of their work need to know applicants' personal data, have access to this. Hotel Ansgar's security procedures are continuously revised based on the latest technological developments.

Security and sharing of personal data

Hotel Ansgar's security procedures are continuously reassessed and updated in relation to technological developments.

Hotel Ansgar uses a number of external suppliers of IT services, IT systems, payment solutions, etc.

Some of Hotel Ansgar's data processors may be located outside the EU/EEA, but all with a legal basis for transfer.

In order to fulfill agreements with those registered and to meet the needs of guests, customers and suppliers, Hotel Ansgar shares selected personal data with external suppliers such as banks, accountants, restaurants, hotels etc.

Hotel Ansgar is part of a group. Therefore, the personal data of the registered may also be shared and passed on internally within the group. The purpose of this sharing is to be able to provide the guest/customer/supplier with the best handling and service, regardless of which hotel or which department in the group the guest/customer/supplier uses.

Hotel Ansgar is in some cases legally obliged to pass on personal data or obliged to do so as a result of a decision by a public authority.
