Information We Collect

"Personal Data"
This refers to any information that you may voluntarily submit to the Venues to create or manage a reservation. This identifies you personally, including contact information, such as your name, e-mail address, company name, address, phone number, and other information about yourself or your company. You may also share specific information about your preferences or profile with regards to your reservation, which the Venue may record about your Guest Profile. The Venue may wish to promote an event based on your Guest Profile. If you are interested in receiving promotional or other communications from the Venue you may choose to “opt-in” to such communications. This can be either be via the Platform or directly informing the Venue whereby you will be subject to the Venue’s marketing and compliancy policy.

Where Venues are using the Platform and CRM services to manage reservations, they may collect the following information:

  • First and last name, gender, e-mail addresses among other personal data about the Guest is recorded in the CRM. Only Designated Users of a Venue may create a Guest Profile that includes the previously listed information (“Guest Profile”).
  • The Guest may be asked to complete a financial transaction service, if the Venue is subscribed to the Payment service and has asked the Guest to secure the reservation in advance. We do not store payment information directly on our servers, but this information may be shared with Venues and third parties as set forth herein.
  • Room booking history of Guests may be linked to the Platform by the Venue Property Management system.
  • Telephone log history of Guests may be linked to the Platform by the Venue telephone network service provider.

  • If Guests provides feedback to the Venue via email or SMS notification.

serVme will only share the information specified above with the Venue at which a Guest has made reservations using the Service.

How Information is Used

By Customers/ Venues
Venues use the Platform and CRM Services to secure and manage reservations and upon the Guest permission to a Venue to communicate with you. The Venue may communicate with the Guest subject to the Venue’s policies and procedures, including those relating to the storage and management of Personal Data. Moreover, Venues may use the Platform to record purchases via integration with POS systems and to take note of the Guest’s special requests, allergies, special occasions or other relevant Personal Data that will help the Venue serve the Guest in a better manner. It is important to know that this data belongs to the Venue and not serVme, since the Venue is engaged with Guest.

Venues may send an email to Guests informing them that they are currently in one of their databases, and request to Unsubscribe from all their promotional and communication emails at any time. Venues subscribed to the Marketing Services may also choose to send promotional campaigns to invite or alert Guests about experiences related to the Venue’s services. Any Guest with a European telephone number will be automatically opted out for all Email and SMS. With the introduction of our new marketing tools, Guests will be able to opt back into your marketing campaigns.

Since each subscribed Venue is a separate business from serVme, we regularly encourage Venues to comply with data protection requirements. However, we will not be responsible for a Venue’s failure to comply with laws applicable to the use of Personal Data. Any complaints or inquiries regarding use of your information by a Venue, should be addressed directly to the Venue. For more inquiry about this process, please contact legal@servmeco.com to ensure that any questions are answered.
