Privacy Policy

Last updated: 3rd October 2018

This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) governs your use of the fairmontstaytus.com website (the “FairmontStaytus Website”) and the software applications for mobile devices owned by Staytus (collectively, the “Fairmont Staytus App”). The Staytus Website and the Fairmont Staytus App (separately or collectively, the “Service”) are provided, owned and operated by Staytus Ltd (BVI) (“Staytus”, “us” or “we”).

Introduction:

The Service is designed for use by guests, visitors, and prospective guests (each a “Subscriber”) of hotels and resorts. The Fairmont Staytus App provides time-sensitive information, messages, privileges, discounts, limited-time offers and other information (the “Information”) from a hotel or resort property that is a member of the Fairmont Staytus program (the “Member Hotel”) to a Subscriber. The Information is sent to the Fairmont Staytus App through a combination of background content updates and occasional push notifications according to the Subscriber’s link to a Member Hotel. The Subscriber’s link to a Member Hotel may be governed by the mobile device’s physical proximity to such Member Hotel, the Subscriber’s manually-chosen selection, and/or whether the Fairmont Staytus App has scanned an Invitation Key from such Member Hotel.

Subscriber Profile Information:

We obtain information provided by the Subscriber when the Subscriber registers his or her account via the Fairmont Staytus App or signs in via the Fairmont Staytus Website. Some benefits provided by the Fairmont Staytus App are available only to registered Subscribers. You become a Subscriber if you download and sign into the Fairmont Staytus App using your verified email address or via any supported social media account. When you register, you provide us with your email address or the unique identifier used by your social media account to identify you. You may also optionally provide additional information during or after registration such as your nationality, date of birth, personal interests and preferences, and other profile information. This additional information may be used by us or by the Fairmont Staytus App to provide enhanced services and tailored Information. We may also collect certain transaction-related information from you as a registered Subscriber of the Fairmont Staytus App, such as when you respond to any offers, information you provide when you contact us for help, and information you enter into our systems when using the Fairmont Staytus App or support services, which may include contact information if you provide it.

We collect device location information if you use our location features, which enable the Fairmont Staytus App to determine your current location in order to identify the Member Hotel where you are located and display relevant Information that you may use while you are visiting that specific hotel or resort , and for diagnostics and troubleshooting purposes such as if you are having trouble with our app’s location features. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP, GPS, Bluetooth signals, and information about nearby Wi-Fi access points, beacons, and cell towers. We may share your location with the specific Member Hotel where you are currently visiting, for the sole purpose of enabling the Member Hotel to provide better services to you, for example to deliver your food or beverage order to you. We will not sell your location information or share your current location with other users or any other third parties. If you do not want us to use your location for the purposes set forth above, you should turn off the location services for the Fairmont Staytus App. You may turn on or off location services in your mobile phone settings.
