Privacy Policy

Privacy is very important to Unique Stays. This Privacy Policy is you about Unique Stays' policies and practices for the selected properties, use and disclosure of information we collect about you through our services, including the website www.uniquestays.pt  and our social network presence. In addition, we may provide additional or supplemental privacy policies to individuals for specific promotions, products, or services that we offer, at the time that we collect any additional personal information. These supplemental privacy policies will govern how we may process the information in the context of the promotions and services.

Unique Stays acts as a processor and service provider to hotels in facilitating your bookings. When you book a hotel through Unique Stays, you also direct us to share your details with the hotel/property to facilitate the booking. You should refer to a hotel's privacy notice for information about the hotel's privacy practices because this Privacy Policy does not govern the hotel's handling of your information.

Unique Stays respects personal information collected to create and maintain consumers' Unique Stays accounts or memberships, or when we interact with guests about Unique Stays' own services.

If you choose to opt-out of targeted advertisements, you will still see advertisements online but they may not be relevant to you.
