We collect and process a range of personal information.

Some of the above may be provided to us via third party sources (i.e. from someone who is not Dormeo). For example:

Third parties provide certain facilities and functions that are made available by Dormeo. For example, we use software provided by a third party to allow individuals to provide an accurate postcode.
We recommend that that you check the privacy notices and statements of any third parties that you provide information to as we are not responsible for the way in which they use, share or make available your personal information.

We collect contact details from our suppliers in order to enable us to place orders with them, pay them, manage our relationships with them and fulfill our contracts with this.
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with our products or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a service you have requested from us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

If you would like a full list of the relevant service providers that we use please contact us [email protected] .

How do we protect the personal information you provide to us?
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. Also, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know.
