privacy policy

By using the Café Krieghoff website, you consent to the use of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 

This page discloses Café Krieghoff’s privacy practices, including the types of information we collect, how we use it, and how we store and protect it. 


Café Krieghoff understands the importance of customer privacy and wants you to be aware of how we collect, use, and protect your personal information. This Privacy Policy describes our practices regarding the information we collect through our website, booking engine, social media pages, newsletter system, other software applications we offer, and any other offline activities, such as when you provide your information to our call center, by phone, or in person at our front desk. 

Collection of personal information 

When you interact with us, we collect information about that interaction, such as when and why you interacted with us. For example, when you browse our website or other online platforms, we collect information such as your IP address, device type and browsing activities. 

We also collect personal information when you make a reservation at our hotel or purchase a gift card. 

If you book a stay at our hotel, we collect the personal information you provide to: 

  • Complete the transaction. 
  • Contact you if necessary. 
  • Verify your identity for legal and security purposes. 

The personal information we collect for these purposes includes your name, e-mail address, home address, telephone number, date of birth, credit card number, expiry date and CVV code. 

If you make a request for special needs – for example, a room for a person with reduced mobility, a baby’s cot, etc. – we collect this information to respond to your request. 

We collect personal information that we reasonably need to perform our functions. 

We do not recommend transmitting payment information via e-mail or social media. To protect your personal information, please only send it to us via the booking engine on our website or by phone.  

How we use your information 

We use your personal information to: 

  • Respond to your requests. 
  • Process your transactions. 
  • Serve you better. 
  • Improve our products and services. 
  • Provide you with relevant offers.  
  • Fulfill our legal obligations. 

Café Krieghoff collects your information primarily to identify you, to communicate with you when necessary and to carry out the reservation and payment process. Secondly, your personal information also allows us to conduct market research to better meet the needs of our customers, to improve the overall experience of our establishment and the efficiency of our website in order to provide the best service. 

At the time of booking, you have the option of “allowing” or “refusing” us to add your email address to our newsletter database. If you agree, we will use your e-mail address to send you relevant offers via our newsletter. At any time, you can opt-out of receiving future mailings by contacting us directly by phone, e-mail or by clicking on the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of the newsletter.  

Finally, we may use your information to fulfill our legal obligations in the event of an emergency or as required by law. 

We assure you that under no circumstances do we sell your personal information to third parties, nor do we use or disclose your personal information for purposes other than those for which it was collected. 

Access to information 

By law, you have the right to access, update or delete your personal information in our files. To do so, please contact us by e-mail at 

Please note that some information may be stored in back-up systems or log files due to technical, financial, or legal constraints, which may prevent the complete deletion of your personal information upon request. 

Protection of information and confidentiality 

To prevent theft, unauthorized access, loss, disclosure, modification or use of your personal information, Café Krieghoff has implemented rigorous physical, electronic, administrative and operational safeguards in accordance with industry standards and practices. 

Electronic data is protected by technological means such as firewalls, access controls and encryption. Café Krieghoff is also PCI compliant. 

Our staff is trained in the importance of protecting our customers’ personal information, and access to personal information is limited to those employees who need it to perform their duties. 

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards are infallible or that online communications are always secure. In the event of a privacy incident, we act quickly to mitigate the risks and inform you when there is a real risk of serious harm. 

To comply with the law, Café Krieghoff has also set up a register of privacy incidents, which must be communicated to the Commission on request. 

Retention of information 

We keep your personal information only as long as it remains necessary and legal for the purposes for which it was collected or used.  

Your personal information will be deleted within 15 days or when you contact us to request that it be deleted from our records.

Third-party reservations and reservation changes

Unless otherwise stated, we consider that this third party has obtained your consent and authorization to provide us with your personal information and to make the reservation (and associated changes) on your behalf, in accordance with our privacy policy. Personal information provided by this third party is subject to our privacy policy and practices.
