Contact Form

We have a contact form on the website which you can use to make enquiries. We ask for you to fill in this form and provide us with your name, email, holiday chalet, telephone number, the preferred method of contact and enquiry message. This data is required to process and reply to your enquiry in a helpful and timely manner. When you submit the forms, your data is transmitted to us via email. The data is taken from the email and stored in our secure on-site database. The enquiry email is then deleted. The enquiry information is kept in our database until it has been fully dealt with. If the enquiry turns to a booking the detail will be stored with the booking. This information will not be shared with any third party.

Job Applications

In order to submit a job application to us, we ask you to email us your CV and photo.  This data is required to process and reply to your job enquiry. Job application emails are stored in an email folder for potential staff. If the person is employed the data is taken and stored in our on-site database. Emails for successful applicants are kept for one season before being deleted. If an applicant is unsuccessful the email (and all record of the data) is deleted at the point a regret letter is issued to them. This information will not be shared with any third party.

Booking Form

Once we have agreed a booking with you we will ask you to fill in our online booking form. This contains name, email, telephone (home, work, mobile) departure date from UK, number of adults in group, number of children in group, where airport transfers will be from, preferred chalet, how you heard about skivo2 and finally guest details. Guest details asked for are the name, age (if under 18), room type required and dietary requirements. All this information is required for us to successfully allocate, process and secure the booking. The information comes to us in the form of an email. If the booking is accepted, we take the data from the email and add it to the relevant week’s booking spreadsheet which is stored securely in our internal systems. Additional information will be added to the booking sheet during the run-up to the booking with any subsequent information you provide us. For our records we keep details of the bookings for 7 years after your holiday. After this time all detail is deleted permanently. We do not share this information with any third party other than the transfer personnel who are given names, and contact details in order to be able to successfully pick you up from the airport.

We hold client names and emails on our enewsletter mailing list. Over many years (prior to the 22nd May 2018) we have collected email address information from existing clients and contacts who have all expressed an interest in hearing about our services. We have never used purchased data or passed our contacts to a third party. We have always had a visible unsubscribe button on our enewsletters and stop sending newsletters when a user unsubscribes. As we have approached the implementation of the GDPR, we have conducted a thorough review and cleansing of our database of mailing list contacts and have since determined that we can continue to market to the remaining contacts under the lawful basis of ‘Legitimate Interest’.

Moving ahead into the future, rest assured, you will still receive the same service and communications just as you have always done, and your data will always continue to be held securely and treated with our absolute care and respect. You will have the right to unsubscribe at any time and can request information about (or correction/deletion of) the data we hold about you.
