It also allows us to make our communications with you more relevant and personalised to you, and to make your experience of our services more efficient and effective;
because you have given your consent – at times we may ask for your consent to allow us to use your personal information for one or more purposes. (See the Your Rights section for more information about the rights that you have if we process your information on the basis of your consent);
or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or proceedings.
How do we protect personal information?
We use a variety of security measures and technologies to help protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use, disclosure, alteration or destruction, consistent with applicable data protection and privacy laws. For example, when you provide your credit card information through our website we allow only encrypted communication to guarantee a secure transaction.
Whilst we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access.
Each Zsidai Group property stores personal information in a secure location and we take steps to ensure that only designated individuals have access to this information.
What information is not secure?
We endeavour to protect the privacy of your account and other personal information that we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information. Also, while we endeavour to put adequate contractual protections in place, we cannot guarantee the security of any personal information in databases hosted by third parties.
It is important to note that any e-mail communication is not secure. This is a risk inherent in the use of e-mail. Please be aware of this when requesting information or sending forms to us by e-mail (for example, from the “Contact Us” section of our website). We recommend that you do not include any confidential information (i.e. credit card information) when using e-mail. For your protection, our e-mail responses to you will not include any confidential information.
Finally, to be prudent, please be sure to always close your browsers when you are done using a form or the reservation site. Although the session will terminate after a short period of inactivity, it is best to close your browsers immediately upon completion, especially when using a public computer.
What personal information may be provided to third parties?
We may share certain of your personal information with:
other Zsidai Group hotels and managed properties including apartments;
in order to offer you the best service, we have to share your personal data and give access to authorized personnel from the Zsidai Group;
agents, contractors or third-party service providers of Zsidai Group who provide services to Pest-Buda to better serve your needs as a guest;
escrow agents, third party lenders and loan-servicing agents;
a prospective buyer or investor in the event that we sell any business or assets;
analytics and search engine providers that assist Pest-Buda in the improvement and optimisation of the website and our mobile App;

You may advise the hotel if you do not want personal preferences shared.
If you have chosen to join a subscription list, please note that they are only used for internal purposes and we do not sell or rent our subscription lists to anyone.
If Pest-Buda Hotel and Apartments suspects any unlawful activity is taking place, it may investigate and/or report its findings or suspicions to the police or other relevant law enforcement agency.
Transfers of your personal information outside your home country
Your personal information may be processed by Zsidai Group and its trusted third-party suppliers anywhere in the world, including in countries where data privacy laws may not be equivalent to, or as protective as, the laws in your home country.
In particular, your personal information will be stored in your guest profile in our cloud based Property Management System and may be available to all Zsidai Group properties.
We will implement appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information remains protected and secure when it is transferred outside of your home country. All transfers of personal information between countries will be subject to the terms of this Privacy Notice and in compliance with these laws.
Accessing your personal information
We understand that you may like to know what personal information we hold about you. We are happy to assist you with your request. To protect your personal information, however, we require that you prove your identity to us at the time your request is made.
When you make a request in person, we will require you to produce some form of photo identification such as a passport or a driver's license and you will be asked to sign a request form. Where you make a request by other means, we request you contact us in writing via email or letter including a copy of a government issued identification and signature. We require home and business addresses and phone numbers so we can check them with our files and satisfy ourselves as to your identity. The above information is required to create an audit trail of how the request has been handled.
Zsidai Group reserves the right to decline access to your personal information under certain circumstances as permitted by law. If your personal information is not disclosed to you, you will be provided with the reasons for this non-disclosure.
You may also be entitled to:
request the correction and/or deletion of your personal information;
request the restriction of the processing of your personal information, or object to that processing;
opt out from processing of your personal information for direct marketing purposes;
withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal information (where Zsidai Group is processing your personal information based on your consent); and
request the receipt or transmission to another organisation, in machine-readable form, of the personal information you have provided to Zsidai Group.
Where you are given the option to share personal information with Pest-Buda by Zsidai Group, you can always choose not to do so.
If you do not wish to receive marketing information from Zsidai Group, you may indicate your wishes on your registration card when you stay with us or send an e-mail to: email@example.com. You will always have the ability to accept or decline any form of communication from Pest-Buda. You may unsubscribe from electronic marketing communications at any time by selecting the “unsubscribe” link included in such communications.
If you object to the processing of your personal information, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you later choose to withdraw it, we will respect that choice in accordance with our legal obligations.
This could mean that we are unable to perform the actions necessary to achieve the purposes of processing described above (see ‘How do we use your personal information?’) or that you are unable to make use of the services offered by us.
After you have chosen to withdraw your consent Zsidai Group may be able to continue to process your personal information to the extent required or otherwise permitted by law.
If at any time you wish to exercise any of these rights, you can do so by contacting us via the details in the ‘Contact us’ section.
