How we use your personal information

We use your personal information for specific reasons.

We use your email address to respond to your enquiry, confirm your booking, to make any necessary arrangements for your retreat and for any follow-up post-retreat.

We use the data you supply about your health issues during your stay at the retreat to ensure your health and safety. In an emergency we would share this information with a suitable medical professional only. Next of kin information is stored during your stay for emergency purposes only.

We use the data on your flight information to book your transfers – we do not share your personal contact details with the transfer company.

We are obligated by Spanish law to supply data on all guests who check-in to the retreat, which is why we collect some personal information. We do not hold this data electronically at the retreat.

We also use personal data for internal evaluation and to plan and evaluate marketing activities.

Marketing emails and newsletter. We will not add your name to our mailing list for newsletter and marketing purposes unless you specifically agree to this by:

  • Adding your name and contact details to our mailing list on our website or social media pages and clicking a double opt-in agreement (sent by email)
  • Writing your name and email address on our opt-in list at the retreat
  • Ticking the box to consent to receive emails from La Crisalida Retreats on our website or any of the forms that we supply

We have a double opt-in policy for our newsletter and mailing list – this is best practice for GDPR. This means when you add your email address and name into our sign-up box(es), we send you an email asking you to confirm you wish to be added to our mailing list. Only once you confirm your sign-up will we contact you for marketing purposes. In order to capture ‘proof’ of consent, we capture IP address and User Agent String of those opting in. If you do not confirm, you will remain as “unsubscribed” for marketing purposes. Signing up for our mailing list does not affect your booking or reservation status in any way.

If you add your name to our mailing list we will use your data for marketing purposes, including, but not restricted to, communication about La Crisalida Retreats, the group, activities, special offers and promotions. If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by emailing us at marketing@lacrisalidaspain.es. You can also call us at the retreat (contact details below). There is an “unsubscribe” option on every marketing email.

If you do not click the double opt-in email to confirm sign-up to the mailing list, we will not contact you for marketing purposes.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. However, we may use information held about you to provide you with information about other products and services which we and other La Crisalida companies offer, which we feel may be appropriate to you by email, telephone, post or other means.

From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone or post. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests.

Your personal data will not be transferred to countries outside the EEA by La Crisalida Retreats.

Once you have finished your retreat we have processes in place to safely discard all your personal data that we no longer need or are obligated (legally or financially) to keep.
