What personal information do we collect?
Personal information is any information that may identify or relate to you as an identifiable individual. We use personal information to facilitate your voyage and our other services, to fulfill your requests, process transactions and contact you; to send you personalized advertising and promotional content and materials; to analyze and improve our services and our business; and for other reasons described more fully in our Privacy Notice below. The personal information that we collect or receive about you could include the following categories of information:

  • Identity information – such as name, age, gender, passport information or data from other government-issued identity cards;

  • Contact information – such as your home address, zip/postal code, email address and phone number;

  • Images – such as closed circuit television (“CCTV”) images, publicly available photographs and images captured at events or during your voyage;

  • Financial and payment information – such as your credit card details, itemized spending, billing address, and transaction history;

  • Reservation information – such as the type and location of the rooms you reserve, restaurant and spa treatment reservations, experiences you book, other Guests associated with your reservations, and the dates of your reservations;

  • Health information – where provided to us and relevant to the provision of services including dietary preferences;

  • Preference information – including but not limited to preferred pillow type and mattress firmness, special accommodations and requests, interests, and data related to past service issues;

  • Voyage and stay history – details of your past voyages, purchases made on your voyage, and limited information on your stay and purchase history with Four Seasons;

  • Public information – such as when we review public platforms to understand more about you, or what you are saying about us or the hospitality industry;

  • Technical information – such as information about the device you use to interact with us (including the hardware model, IP address, geolocation data, operating system and version); and

  • Correspondence information – when you contact us, such as to send an inquiry or make a request, any correspondence or application may be kept, and information derived from such correspondence may be added to your personal information.

During your voyage with us, we may collect the following information for the specific purposes outlined below:

  • Amenities and Add-On Services – If you choose to take advantage of our amenities or enhance your voyage with on-board purchases of goods or services, we collect your personal identifiers, customer records, and commercial information. We use this information to process your transaction, book and administer your services, to communicate with you and those travelling with you about your services, and to inform our advertising and marketing activities. Depending on the Service, we may also need to collect information about your health or medical conditions in order to accommodate your specific needs and to administer your services on a voyage. Where the services are provided by third-party companies, we will use your information to coordinate and facilitate their provision of the Service.

  • Incidents and Health Screenings – If, while traveling with us, you suffer a personal injury, fall ill, submit a claim about a personal injury, or are otherwise involved in an incident, we collect your personal identifiers, health or medical information and details about the incident. We may also engage a third party service provider to screen you for symptoms of potential contagions, such as COVID-19, that may present a risk to the other Guests and crew members aboard our ships, including through temperature checks and self-assessment questionnaires. We use this information to attend to your medical and safety needs and those of our Guests and crew, maintain records of incidents, facilitate investigations and remedies, to protect our rights and the rights of our Guests, for security and public health purposes, to prevent fraud, and to improve our services.

  • Photo and Video Footage – We collect a security photo at or before you board our ships. We operate CCTV cameras on board our ships, including at all access points and throughout the public areas. These CCTV cameras record continually and images of you may be captured in these recordings ("CCTV images"). Photographers and camera crews take photographs and make films for Guests to purchase at the end of their voyage or for our own promotional use. We use this information for our own promotional purposes, to maintain records of incidents, facilitate investigations and remedies, to protect our rights and the rights of our Guests, for security purposes, , to prevent fraud, and to improve our services. We may apply facial recognition technology to your security photo to facilitate camera-enabled rapid embarkation, debarkation, at entry and exit of the vessel at ports of call. We may also use facial recognition to link the pictures and videos taken by onboard photographers or videographers to you for ease of ordering and to reduce paper waste. If applicable law requires it, we will seek your prior consent to the collection of facial biometric identifiers. We delete facial biometric identifiers promptly following completion of the voyage though we may retain any photos that have been identified and linked to a Guest account for up to two (2) years to enable Guest access and purchase of photos and photo memorabilia after the end of the voyage.

How do we use your personal information?
For each of the categories of personal information described above, we use your personal information for the following purposes:

We will combine information from a number of our Guests as well as visitors to our Sites to better understand trends and your expectations.

For each of the categories of personal information and purposes described above, we gather information when you provide it to us directly, or otherwise interact with us, for example:

  • when you create an account or sign in to access your account;

We also collect your personal information while monitoring our technology tools and services, including email communications sent to and from MHCH and the use of the chat functionality on our Sites.

We may also receive information about you from other sources. We may receive personal information about you from other users or our business partners and service providers and combine this information with other information we have.

Four Seasons, Delegates and Other Travelers. We may obtain information about you from Four Seasons, your delegate(s) and/or other travelers who are traveling with you or who have traveled with you, as well as your emergency contacts. We use this information to book your travel itinerary, communicate with you and those traveling with you about the services, to support public health initiatives, to administer the services, and for the purpose for which it was provided to us.

Travel Agents. If you purchase travel through a travel agent, the agent may send us your personal identifiers, commercial information and information about health or medical conditions. We will use this information to complete the transaction, book your travel itinerary, communicate with you and those traveling with you about the services, analyze trends, improve our business, and facilitate your experience. They may retain a copy of this data. The travel agent is solely responsible for the processing of personal data they retain. Please review the privacy notice of each applicable travel agent for more information about their processing practices.

We may obtain information about you that is made publicly available on the internet. For example, we may collect information you publicly post or tag us in on social media sites, such as Facebook or Google, elsewhere online, and information contained in public records databases. We may also combine information that we have about you from various sources, including the information that you have provided to us. We will use this information to verify your identity, prevent fraud, and improve our services.

How do we use cookies and other similar technologies?
We collect information automatically from you through the use of cookies, pixel tags, scripts and other similar technologies when you visit our Sites or read our emails. We may use third party partners or technology to collect this information. For example, we use these third party tools to collect information you provide as well as information about how you use our Sites and your experience on our Sites, such as the pages you visit or links you click on our Sites, videos you watch, mouse clicks and movements and other browsing behavior, and whether you use multiple devices to access our Sites. These tools may also record information you enter when you interact with our Sites or engage in a chat using our Sites. We and our third party partners also collect information about the device you use to visit our Sites, such as the IP address, device type, operating system, and a unique ID that allows us to uniquely identify a browser , and other similar information. If permitted by your device settings, we and our third party providers may collect location data through Wi-Fi or other methods. We collect analytics data, or use third party analytics tools, to help measure traffic and usage trends and to understand more about the demographics and behaviors of our users. Information collected automatically through these tools may be combined with other personal information we collect from you or receive from other sources.

We, or our third party partners, may use the data collected through cookies and similar technologies to remember information about you for the following purposes: so that you will not have to re-enter it on our Sites; to provide custom, personalized content and information; to identify and contact you across multiple devices; to provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Sites; generate analytics; to diagnose or fix technology problems; to detect or prevent fraud or other harmful activities; to personalize and enhance your experience and to improve the effectiveness of our Sites, offers, advertising, communications and customer service,  and otherwise to plan for, optimize and enhance our online services.

Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have the user’s online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about that browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operations, including the Site, do not respond to DNT signals. However, where required by applicable law, we will recognize and honor opt-out preference signals (or global privacy controls).

We may also use third party advertising companies to serve advertisements regarding Four Seasons Yachts and Four Seasons that may interest you after you access and use our Sites. To serve such advertisements, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser (including through the use of pixel tags, scripts or similar technology). For more information about our and our third party partners’ use of cookies and related technologies to collect information automatically, please see our Cookie Notice.

How do we protect personal information?
We use a variety of physical, technical and organizational security measures and technologies to help preserve the integrity and security of your personal information, consistent with applicable data protection and privacy laws. Such measures include, but are not limited to, adopting monitoring and governance policies and processes, technical and physical access controls, use of encryption technologies, employee training, and the regular audit and maintenance of our systems.

We endeavor to protect the privacy of your online account and internal profile as well as other personal information that we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized access or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information. Also, while we endeavor 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 email communication is not secure. This is a risk inherent in the use of email. Please be aware of this when requesting information or sending forms to us by email.
