    How we store your data and keep it secure

    We take all reasonable technical and organisational precautions to store your information in a secure manner and prevent its loss or misuse.
    We do not store or process any personal data other than as detailed in “Information we collect”.
    Where you choose to pay us by credit or debit card using our processing terminal (whether it is by using the physical card or when we process a card in the “cardholder not present” manner) we will have a printed receipt slip that contains details of the amount paid and some card details. This receipt slip is kept in a secure location and can only be accessed by authorised personnel.
    On arrival, the Moroccan authorities require you to verify your identity and booking details by completing a registration form that includes personal information. This registration form is kept in a secure location until delivered to the Moroccan authorities (normally on the same day as arrival). The same information is copied into a Hotel Register which is kept in a secure location at Kasbah Angour for inspection by the Moroccan authorities.

    Using your personal information
    The personal information provided to us will only be used in connection with the services we are providing to you and is intended to improve your experience.
    We may use your personal information to:

    • Process your booking and provide confirmation details
    • Obtain payments for our services via credit/debit card
    • Respond to any questions or comments via e-mail, telephone or post.
    • Provide information that may be useful to you
    • Request feedback about your stay with us, the booking experience and our website. This is sometimes done in conjunction with Mailchimp.
    • Return any items that you may forget to take with you on check-out
  • Apart from the legal requirement to deliver the hotel registration information to the Moroccan authorities, Kasbah Angour will not transfer any personal data to any other party if it is not part of the booking and review process described above.

    Newsletter
    We produce a newsletter approximately 12 times per year, this newsletter is sent to people who have provided us with their email address indicating that they are interested in receiving information about Kasbah Angour. These are sent electronically via Mailchimp and there is an option to unsubscribe on every publication if you no longer wish to receive them.
