Information we collect from you

When you enquire about a holiday property, we will require your name, email address and (optionally) your phone number. This information will be stored safely in electronic form and not in any address book etc and will be retained for internal monitoring purposes and not shared with any other organisation.

When you book a holiday with us, we will require name, address, email and phone number(s) of the person making the booking, as well as party size and ages of any children. This information will be stored safely in printed and electronic form and not in any address book etc and will be retained for internal monitoring and email marketing purposes. In addition, we will require your credit or debit card details: this information is inserted in Secure Trading's payment portal and the only information passed to Summer's Leases Ltd is the card type and expiry date (for balance payment purposes). Summer's Leases Ltd has no access to your card information.

You may ask to have your email address removed from our mailing database at any time, either by contacting the Director or using the "unsubscribe from this list" link at the bottom of any newsletter.

Information that we share

When you book a holiday, the owner and/or property manager is advised of your arrival and departure dates, your name, party size, ages of children and any additional information you may have added (optional). This is so they are aware of the booking and can prepare the villa accordingly. Sometimes a contact phone number is requested for simplifying arrivals. No other information is passed to the owner/manager.

No personal information is passed to any other organisation except as set out below:

For some villas, we are required to make a monthly statistical return to the local tourist board. This is completely anonymous and merely records size of party, length of stay and nationality.

For some villas, a detailed return is required to the Italian police. In these cases, passport details for all party members are entered into the state police web site and the information is retained by them. No copy of these details is retained by Summer's Leases Ltd.
