What personal data we collect and why we collect it

  2. Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our online shop.

Also, for security purposes Highlands Motor Inn sometimes collects and analyzes the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet and to our booking system. This is done for your protection and for tracking purposes in the event that someone opens an account or attempts to make reservations under a false name.
  3. E-mail Communications: We sometimes send you newsletters of our services as well as booking confirmations. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us, other than order notifications and receipts, please adjust your “Subscription” preferences by logging into your account.
