This privacy policy applies to the Sites and all products and services offered by Meetingsbooker Ltd.

Unless we have agreed otherwise in writing with you, we are the “data controller” for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the “controller” for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation when the GDPR comes into force on 25 May 2018.

Data Controller:

Meetingsbooker Ltd

Dún Laoghaire

Dublin, Ireland.

Company registration number IE466606.

Information we collect and/or process:

– Basic data (e.g. person name, company name etc), Contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), Content data (e.g. content entries, photos, videos, rates, reviews, offers, availability etc), Payments data (e.g. card details for future bookings, bank details to process pay-outs), Usage data (e.g. Websites visited, interest in content, access times), Meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses)

Purpose of information we collect and/or process:

Visitors are advised that each time they visit a Website two general levels of information about their visit can be retained. The first level comprises statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate and non-individual specific basis of all browsers who visit the site. The second is information which is personal or particular to a specific visitor who knowingly chooses to provide that information.

The statistical and analytical information provides general and not individually specific information about the number of people who visit this www.meetingsbooker.com; the number of people who return to this site; the pages that they visit; where they were before they came to this site and the page in the site at which they exited. This information helps us interpret traffic on our website so that we can manage the site’s capacity and efficiency. It also helps us to understand which parts of this site are most popular and generally to assess user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site.

Through this Website you may have an opportunity to send us information, such as through the “contact us” “enquiry” “newsletter sign-up” pages or any other area where you may send e-mails, request brochures or provide feedback. You will also leave information when you complete a meeting room booking or instant quote. By choosing to participate in these, you will be providing us with some level of personal information relating to you. This information will only be used by Meetingsbooker for (i) the purposes for which it was provided by you; (ii) verification purposes and statistical analysis; and (iii) marketing (If you have consented to opt-in) and administration purposes. (v) in the case of information left when booking or receiving an instant quote for meeting rooms, your information will also be available to the hotel or conference venue in question.

For the data collected, in accordance with the statutory directives in Ireland, the retention timeframe shall be particularly for 6 years. This is in accordance with Companies Act 2014 section 281 and section 283 (2)

Payment processing

Payment details you provide will be encrypted using 256-bit secure sockets layer (SSL) technology before they are submitted over the internet. Payments made on the Applications are made through our payment gateway provider, Stripe. You will be providing credit or debit card information directly to Stripe which operates a secure server to process payment details, encrypting your credit/debit card information and authorising payment. Information which you supply to Stripe is not within our control and is subject to Stripe’s own privacy policy and terms and conditions.

Transmissions to Non-EU Countries

Insofar as we process data in a non-EU country (i.e. outside of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or this occurs within the parameters of the commissioning of third-party services or disclosure and/or transmission of data to third parties otherwise occurs, this shall be undertaken only if this occurs for the fulfilment of our (pre-)contractual obligations, upon the basis of your consent, owing to a legal obligation or upon the basis of our rightful interests. Subject to the legal or contractual permissions, we shall process, or have the Data processed, in a non-EU country only in the event that the special requirements prescribed in Art. 44 ff. GDPR have been fulfilled. That is to say, the processing shall be undertaken, for example, upon the basis of special guarantees such as the officially-recognised establishment of a data protection level corresponding to one of the data protection levels that is valid for the EU (e.g. for the USA by the “Privacy Shield”) or the fulfilment of officially-recognised special contractual obligations (so-called “Standard Contractual Clauses”) or, for example, if the transmission is required to fulfil contractual obligations (e.g. when the booked room is situated in a non-EU country).

The Applications are not marketed toward persons under the age of 18. If Meetingsbooker discovers that it has inadvertently collected Personal Information about individuals under the age of 18, it will promptly delete such information.
