What information do we collect?
Crown Resorts Management S.L.U. is the company that manages the residential complex of Crown Resorts. The information collected before or during your stay, is necessary to provide you with the services you have requested and that you have contracted with us or to comply with legal Spanish requirements.
When you make a booking with us, you must provide at least your contact details, your name, phone, e-mail, dates of stay, payment document or credit card.
When you arrive on the Resort, we must take a copy of your passport or identity document for the Guardia Civil, which is a legal requirement.
If you receive our Vacation Planner prior to your stay, you can purchase additional and complementary services. Here also you must give us your basic information and credit card number, so we are able to charge you for these services. The credit card number will be securely stored on the server of our website host, Marketing Publicidad. It will only be used to fulfil the requirements you request on the Vacation Planner and then will be deleted.
If you use our payment service via Wifi, your user details, the information of the devices from which you access the network, and the connection history, will be stored by the service provider, a requirement of the security regulations for a period of time established by law. This information remains stored confidentially during the period of time established by law and can only be transferred to law enforcement forces and authorised agencies.
In the Resorts there are cameras connected to a closed-circuit video, which serve to monitor and uphold the security of the complex and your own. These images are recorded in accordance with applicable law. The video recording is made by Crown Resorts S.L.U. and only records images from the public areas of the resorts and no audio. This is for security purpose and we only view those images in case of an incident or if the state security forces (police) ask for those images. There are no cameras in any apartment. Those images are stored for no more than 14 days and are then deleted, unless there is legal or security reason, for example a police enquiry into a burglary.
It is possible that if you participate in a recreational event organised by us in our facilities, the animation and marketing team may take photographic images that can be used on our web site or in publications, etc. These images will only be used with your consent. We provide a consent form to gain your permission to take the photos. We will store the photo in a secure folder and use it only for publicity purposes. We do not change, edit or modify any personal image on the photo.
Vacation Care International Ltd provide membership and management charge collection services to Crown Resorts. Levellight Ltd provide the facility to enable Crown Resorts’ members to pay their management charges by direct debit.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
VIII. Data retention
How long will you use my personal data for?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
By law we have to keep basic information about our Clients, Members, Occupiers and Exchanges (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for seven years after they cease being Clients, Members, Occupiers or Exchangees.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data. (see Request erasure [LINK] below). Please email email@example.com further information.

However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Time limit to respond
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us at: email@example.com.
Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
You have the right to:
– Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
– Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
– Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
– Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
– Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
– Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
– Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
