This privacy policy applies to our operations and bookings made through the United States.

If you are accessing and/or using the site while in Canada this privacy policy does not apply. Please refer to the Canadian privacy policy at https://www.sandals.com/canada-privacy-policy/

This privacy policy is part of Unique’s website terms and conditions https://www.sandals.com/terms-conditions/, and your use of the site, clicking to agree to such terms and/or this privacy policy and/or submission of information or personal data to the site constitutes your acceptance of and agreement with the terms of this privacy policy and your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal data as described herein.

This Privacy Policy describes our practices with respect to “personal data”. As the term suggests, “personal data” is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, personal information such as a user’s name, address, or telephone number, e-mail address, and information about online activities that are directly linked to them. By “personal data” we also mean your vacation arrangements and booking history. Personal data does not include data where you can no longer be identified from it such as anonymised aggregate data.

It is common practice and often a necessity for companies or other organizations to collect personal data in order to conduct business and offer services. Unique is committed to protecting your privacy and this Privacy Policy sets out what personal data we collect, how we collect it, what we use it for and who we share it with or disclose it to.

This Privacy Policy applies to personal data about you that we collect, use and otherwise process in connection with your relationship with us as a customer or potential customer, including when you book holidays with us, use our websites or call centres, book our services through third parties such as travel agents and tour operators or engage with us at a trade fair or events we are attending. If you are a tour operator agent or travel agent, we may also collect additional personal data which is explained in the “Tour Operator/Travel Agent Privacy Policy” https://taportal.sandals.com/privacy-policy/. If you are booking a wedding with us then we will also need to collect further personal data from you which is explained in the “Wedding Customers Privacy Policy Supplemental Terms” provided below. We may provide other supplemental Privacy Policies on specific occasions when we are collecting, processing or disclosing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your personal data. Those supplemental policies should be read together with this Privacy Policy.

Where you also provide us with personal data of others, for instance, guests accompanying you on your holiday, please provide those persons with a copy of this Privacy Policy. Their personal data is also subject to the terms hereof.

What information do we collect about you and what do we use it for?

Please note that we may use your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, if we are required by law to do so or if we reasonably believe that it is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with judicial or regulatory proceedings, a court order or other legal process.

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it (as identified above in the What we use this data for column), unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason which is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Additionally, notwithstanding any other provision contained herein, to the extent permitted or required by law, regulation or other legal requirement, we will disclose your information to government authorities or third parties if: (i) required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena or court order; (ii) we believe in our sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or (iii) we believe that you have abused the Site by using it to attack other systems or to gain unauthorized access to any other system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws or in violation of our Site Terms and Conditions. You should be aware that, following disclosure to any third party, your information may be accessible by others to the extent permitted or required by applicable law.

How long will we retain your information?

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. Generally, we will keep information relevant to our dealings with you for minimum of seven years once you have ceased being a customer.

Generally, we will keep information relevant to our dealings with you for up to seven years once you have ceased being a customer. Exceptional circumstances will or may apply to customer service data where we will keep information for up to 10 years.

In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you as it is no longer personal data.

Once we no longer require your personal data for the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. We will securely destroy your personal data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

Your rights in relation to your information

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please let us know if your personal data changes during your relationship with us, for example, if you change your address or contact information.

  • Request access to your personal data and request certain information in relation to its processing;

  • Request rectification of your personal data;

  • Request the erasure of your personal data;

  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data;

  • Object to the processing of your personal data;

  • Request the transfer of your personal data to another party.

Fees

You will not usually have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee where permitted by law or, where permitted, if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

Right to withdraw consent

Where personal data is processed based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact privacy@uniqueglobalinc.com. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose(s) you originally agreed to unless we have an alternative legal basis for doing so. A revocation of consent does not have any effect on Unique’s prior actions taken in reliance on the consent before revoked and does not affect Unique’s use of information that does not constitute personal data. Following receipt of a request from you, we will take reasonable steps to delete your information as requested.

User Opt-out

You may choose not to receive direct marketing communications from Unique by notifying Unique via email. If Unique receives such a request from you, Unique thereafter (a) will discontinue contacting you directly with marketing messages about Unique’s products or services, and (b) will not use personal data obtained from your use of the Site to contact you with marketing messages about any of Unique’s events, products or services. Please note, however, that any such opt out only applies to Unique and will not apply to any other third parties to which Unique has supplied your personal data. Additionally, you acknowledge and agree that such opt-out notification processing may not be immediate, and you agree that should you receive additional communications your rights and remedies are limited to contacting us to reiterate your request to opt-out.

Surveys

Unique may from time to time conduct surveys on the Site. Surveys are conducted at random and are completely voluntary to users of the Site. The survey may require a user to provide personal data. Unique may use this information and share it with its contractors as described above to better tailor its products, services and marketing efforts, including advertising or other content provided on the Site and/or to you in particular.

Additional Privacy Protections for Children Using the Internet

Our Site is not intended for use by minors. Unique is concerned about the privacy and safety of children when they use the Internet. We will never knowingly request personal data online from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent.

In the event that Unique or any of its affiliates is acquired (whether by sale of assets or ownership interests) by merger with a third party entity or otherwise, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our website visitors as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control, and your use of the Site and/or submission of any information to the Site constitutes your consent to such transfer or assignment. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal data is treated, transferred, or used.
