This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, process, and disclose your information across the RC Platform. The “RC Platform” refers to Reservation Caribbean (“RC”) websites, our mobile, tablet and other smart applications, and all associated LR services.

When this policy mentions “RC,” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to the Reservation Caribbean company that is responsible for your information under this Privacy Policy (the “Data Controller”). The Data Controller is the Reservation Caribbean entity that you are contracting with which, if you are booking or supplying Accommodation through the RC Platform, will be one of the following:

  • If you are booking or supplying Accommodation located in The Caribbean or Barbados, the Data Controller is Reservation Caribbean. (“RC”).

Please see Section 10 for contact details of the companies listed above.

In this policy, we use a few terms which are defined as follows: A “Member” is anyone who has registered an RC account, including Suppliers and Guests. A “Supplier” is someone who offers services (“Supplier Services”) via published listings on the RC Platform (“Listings”). A “Guest” is someone who books, or seeks to book, Supplier Services. “Accommodation” means a vacation or other property. “Payment Services” means any payment processing services provided through or in connection with a Member’s use of the RC Platform.

1. Information We Collect

There are three general categories of information that we collect.

1.1. Information You Give Us.

We collect information you share with us when you use the RC Platform in order to ensure the adequate performance of contracts between you and RC, or between you and a Supplier. The provision of this information is necessary to use the RC Platform and, without it, we will not be able to provide you with services that you request.

  • Account Information. When you sign up for an RC account or submit a request for Accommodation booking information, we require certain information such as your name and email address.
  • Profile Information. To use certain features within the RC Platform, we may need to ask you to complete a profile, which may include your address and phone number.
  • Other Authentication-Related Information. To help create and maintain a trusted environment, and to the extent permitted by applicable laws, we may collect identification that you provide (like a photo of your government-issued ID) or other authentication information.
  • Payment Information. When you use the Payment Services (such as when booking Accommodation or a travel-related experience through us or establishing a Supplier relationship via us), we require certain financial information (like your bank account or credit card information) to process payments and comply with applicable law. If you are a Supplier, we may require additional information such as your ID or tax ID (where permitted by applicable law), and other proof of identification or verification in order to verify your identity, provide the Payment Services to you, and comply with applicable law. If you are a Guest, we may retain your financial information to assist you with booking travel-related experiences with third parties.
  • Communications with RC. When you communicate with RC, we collect information about your communication and any information you choose to provide.
  • Other Information. You may otherwise choose to provide us information (such as your itinerary, food allergies, emergency contact information, travel preferences, and information about other guests accompanying you on your stay) when you fill in a form, speak to, or otherwise communicate with an LR representative, conduct a search, update or add information to your LR account, respond to surveys, participate in promotions, or use other features of the LR Platform.

1.2. Information We Automatically Collect from Your Use of the RC Platform.

When you use the RC Platform, we collect information about the services you use and how you use them, even if you don’t sign up for an RC account. We process this information for the activities and legal bases described in Section 2 below.

  • Usage Information. We collect information about your interactions with the RC Platform, such as the pages or other content you view, your searches for villas, bookings you have made, the experiences and activities you book with others through us, and other actions on the RC Platform.
  • Location Information. When you use certain features of the RC Platform, we may collect different types of information about your general location (e.g. IP address, zip code).
  • Log Data. We automatically collect log information when you use the RC Platform, even if you have not created an RC account or logged in. That information includes, among other things: details about how you’ve used the RC Platform (including if you clicked on links to third party applications), IP address, access times, hardware and software information, device information, device event information (e.g., crashes, browser type), unique identifiers, and the page you’ve viewed or engaged with before or after using the RC Platform.
  • Transaction Information. We collect information related to your transactions on the RC Platform or transactions made through the RC Platform, including the date and time, amounts charged, and other related transaction details.
  • Cookies and Similar Technologies. We use cookies and other similar technologies, such as web beacons, pixels, and mobile identifiers. We may also allow our business partners to use these tracking technologies on the RC Platform, or engage others to track your behavior on our behalf. You may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings. For more information on our use of these technologies, see our Cookie Policy. 

1.3. Information We Collect from Third Parties.

We may collect information that others provide about you when they use the RC Platform, or obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the RC Platform. RC does not control, supervise or respond for how the third parties providing your information process your personal data, and any information request regarding the disclosure of your personal information to RC should be directed to such third parties.

  • Third Party Services. If you link, connect, or login to your RC account with a third party service (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google), we may collect information from the third party service, such as your registration and profile information. This information varies and is controlled by that service or as authorized by you via your privacy settings at that service.
  • Background Information. For certain Members in the United States, to the extent permitted by applicable laws, RC may obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations. For Members outside of the United States, to the extent permitted by applicable laws, RC may obtain the local version of background or registered sex offender checks. We may use your information, including your full name and date of birth, to obtain such reports. We will only collect this information where required by applicable laws or where necessary to ensure the adequate performance of our services for you.
  • Other Sources. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data or fraud detection information, from third party service providers and/or partners (such as SafelyStay) and combine it with information we have about you. For example, we may receive background check results or fraud warnings from service providers like identity verification services for our fraud prevention and risk assessment efforts. We may receive information about you and your activities on and off the RC Platform, including about your interactions from our partner ad networks. For example, if you book a restaurant reservation through RC, the restaurant may send information to us that you submitted to them, like your dining preferences or dining activity. We may receive information about you and your activities on and off the RC Platform through partnerships, or about your experiences and interactions from our partner ad networks.

3.1. With Your Consent or Where Authorized by Law.

  • We may share your information at your direction or as described by us to you at the time of sharing, such as if you, as a Guest, have requested us to connect you with a third party vendor or to purchase services from a third party vendor on your behalf, in connection with your booking (e.g., an insurance provider or activities provider), or if you, as a Supplier, have agreed to let us market your Accommodation through, or refer you to, a third party’s platform. In these situations, you are authorizing RC to disclose to these third party vendors information required to book them and to receive the relevant services from them. This could include special preferences or requests, and any additional guest information. These third party vendors are not controlled by RC and personal information shared with them is subject to their privacy policies and practices.
  • We may also share certain contact details about you, such as your name, email and past reservations in RC, to other companies and business partners of RC, who may then send you marketing communications about products or services that may interest you.

  • When you as a Guest submit a booking request, certain information about you may be shared with the Supplier to coordinate the booking, such as your name, contact details, and arrival date.
  • When you as a Supplier have a confirmed booking, certain of information about you may be shared with the Guest to coordinate the booking, such as your full name, phone number, and Accommodation address.

Sharing this information is necessary to provide Guests with our services, and we don’t share your billing and payout information with other Members.

3.3. Reviews, Listings, and other Public Information.

The RC Platform publishes information that is visible to the general public. For example:

  • Public Listing pages are publicly visible and include information such as the Accommodation’s approximate or exact location, Listing description, calendar availability, and any additional information the Supplier chooses to share.
  • After completing a booking, Guests may write reviews which may appear publicly on Listing pages (and other pages on which we may market Accommodations) under their first name, last initial, and general location.
  • If you submit content on our blog, in a public forum, or in a social media post, or use a similar feature on the RC Platform, that content is publicly visible.

Information you share publicly on the RC Platform may be indexed through third party search engines. If you change your settings or your public-facing content, these search engines may not update their databases. We do not control the practices of third party search engines, and they may use caches containing your outdated information.

3.4. Additional Services by Suppliers.

Suppliers may use third party services available through the RC Platform to assist with managing their Accommodation or providing additional services, such as cleaning services, insurance or activities providers. Suppliers may use features on the RC Platform to share information about the Guest (like the Guest’s check-in and check-out dates, name, phone number, and anonymized email address) with that third party service provider for the purposes of coordinating the stay, managing the Accommodation, or delivering other services.

3.5. Safety and Compliance with Law.

RC may disclose your information to courts, law enforcement or governmental authorities, or authorized third parties, if and to the extent we are required or permitted to do so by law or if such disclosure is reasonably necessary: (i) to comply with legal process and to respond to claims asserted against RC, (ii) to respond to verified requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other of our users to legal liability, (iii) to enforce and administer our Terms of Use or other agreements with Members, (iv) for fraud investigation and prevention, risk assessment, customer support, product development and debugging purposes, or (v) to protect the rights, property or personal safety of RC, its employees, its Members, or members of the public.

We will attempt to notify Members about these requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon LR’s property, its Members and the RC Platform (collectively, “Risk Scenarios”). In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify that Member about the request after the fact if we determine in good faith that we are no longer legally prohibited from doing so and that no Risk Scenarios apply.

3.6. Corporate Affiliates.

To help us provide the RC Platform, we may share your information within our corporate family of companies (both financial and non-financial entities) that are related by common ownership or control

In this event, we will notify you before your personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

3.9. Aggregated Data.

We may also share aggregated information (information about our users that we combine together so that it no longer identifies or references an individual user) and other de-identified information for industry and market analysis, regulatory compliance, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes. 

4. Other Important Information

We may review, scan, or analyze your communications on the RC Platform for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, investigation, product development, research, and customer support purposes.

In some cases, we may also scan, review, or analyze messages to debug, improve, and expand product offerings. We use automated methods where reasonably possible. However, occasionally we may need to manually review some communications, such as for fraud investigations and customer support, or to assess and improve the functionality of these automated tools. We will not review, scan, or analyze your communications to send third party marketing messages to you, and we will not sell reviews or analyses of these communications.

These activities are carried out based on RC’s legitimate interest in ensuring compliance with applicable laws, preventing fraud, promoting safety, and improving and ensuring the adequate performance of our services.
