We are committed to protecting the privacy of our users and customers. This Privacy Policy is intended to inform you how we gather, define, and use information that could identify you, such as your name, email address, address, other contact details or online identifiers. Please take a moment to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

What information do we collect?

When you visit and/or use our Platform or contact us, we may collect the following information:

  • Personal Information that you choose to share with us when you register for an account, subscribe to emails, newsletters and alerts and which you provide to us when using our services, including information entered into our booking platform and included in your comments, reviews or survey responses. In the course of making a booking or submitting reviews, you might voluntarily provide us with sensitive personal data if relevant to the service that you are requesting or reviewing.

  • If you choose to communicate with us (for example, through the Platform, email, telephone, SMS, or social media) we will record the fact that you have contacted us and may retain the content of your communication, together with your contact details and our response.

It is important that all the Personal Information you give us when you register as a user or otherwise when you use the Platform is correct and accurate. This includes, by way of example only, ensuring that we have your correct contact (including email) details at all times.

If you plan to submit someone else's Personal Information to us, for instance when making a booking on their behalf, you should only provide us with that third party's details with their consent and after they have been given access to information about how we will use their details, including the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

Sharing personal information with third parties

We treat the security and method of processing your Personal Information very seriously, and we will never sell your Personal Information under any circumstances.

However, we may disclose your Personal Information to selected third parties, including Treatwell for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy.

​​

  • If you place an order or otherwise engage with Treatwell through a website or app powered on behalf of a third party, then your contact details and details of your order will be passed on to the relevant third party, for example Lastminute.com when you make a booking via spa.lastminute.co.uk. If you give a third party such as Last Minute the relevant consents, they may also send you marketing communications.

  • To third party service providers that perform functions on our behalf in relation to the Platform or otherwise in connection with the provision of Treatwell's services (for example, processing credit card payments, website hosting, conducting surveys and market research, providing social media analysis, providing marketing email services, data analysis tools and to manage customer services communications).

  • To our Partners with whom you book services whether via our Website, where Treatwell acts as commercial booking agent, or directly with the Partner via our Partner Platform or Widgets, where we act solely as a technology provider. Your information is shared with Partners in order that:

    • bookings can be facilitated and, if necessary, contact made in advance of your appointment;

    • if you have opted in to receiving marketing emails from Partners with which you book, these emails can be sent to you containing news and special offers; and

    • they can improve the services they offer to their customers and business operations by providing statistical data regarding customers, both on an aggregated basis and on an individual level.

  • To third party brands with which we collaborate on products, services, competitions and campaigns

  • To third party salon software providers used by our Partners to ensure that those third party software solutions and Connect each display real-time availability to customers

  • If we buy, sell or transfer any business or assets or if go into insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership. If this should happen, we may need to disclose your Personal Information to the seller or buyer of such business or assets, as appropriate

  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your Personal Data to comply with any legal obligation or in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions and other agreements or protect the rights, property, or safety of our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction

  • To government authorities, and to other third parties as required or permitted by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders. We also may disclose user information when we have reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other users of our Platform, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

Please note: by posting any Personal Information in any publicly accessible area of our Platform (such as review sections), such information may be collected by third parties over which we have no control. We are not responsible for the use of such information by such third parties.

In the first instance you may be able to view or change the information you have provided us with by logging in to your online account.

Your rights in relation to your personal information are limited in some situations.
