Privacy Policy

Riverview Hotel Singapore understands that privacy is important to you and wants your experience online to be as enjoyable and safe as possible.

This privacy policy describes how Riverview Hotel Singapore handles your personal information generally and when you use this web site (the “Site”).

What personal information is collected by Riverview Hotel Singapore?
Visitors to the Site provide various kinds of information in several different ways. Some visitors choose to submit personal information through subscription and entry forms, booking forms and requests for more information, either through e-mails, response devices or other methods.

Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked at various times to provide information including but not limited to, your name, e-mail address or information about what you like and do not like. When booking accommodation on-line or paying for other goods or services, we may request your credit card number to complete the transaction or your mailing address to ensure delivery.

Similarly, guests at our hotels and other individuals may provide information to Riverview Hotel Singapore.

Riverview Hotel Singapore will generally not collect sensitive information about you such as details of your race, political beliefs, religion or health. However this may be required where we are providing you with specialised services (such as access requirements for a disability).

We need this personal information in order to provide you with our products or services, and so we can provide you with a broad range of information in relation to tourism, hospitality and services and to assist in delivering a better service to you.

This information will be recorded by the hotel or business to which it is given and updated by that hotel or business when additional information is supplied or upon request from you. The contact details of a hotel or business are available when you obtain services from that a hotel or business.

Use of personal information
Riverview Hotel Singapore uses the personal information collected to provide you with our services and to assist in making your experience with Riverview Hotel Singapore a satisfying one. Information is also collected to establish and maintain proper business records.

Your personal information may also be used by Riverview Hotel Singapore to notify you about new products, services or promotions in the tourism, hospitality or services industries from time to time.

Riverview Hotel Singapore’s guests have the ability to make reservations via the booking facility included as part of the Site. The benefit of this booking facility system is that you can make a reservation at any time, 24 hours per day.

If you choose to make a booking via the telephone and you make your call outside usual business hours in the country from which you are calling, you may be talking to an operator from overseas but your personal information collected at that time will only be used to process your booking and as otherwise described in this privacy policy.

Will your information be given to anyone else?
You should be aware that from time to time, members of Riverview Hotel Singapore may have a minority interest in other companies in the tourism, hospitality or services industry.

Your personal information may be transferred to those companies and others in which members of Riverview Hotel Singapore have a minority interest for the purpose of promoting the services and products which these companies offer. Those companies can be contacted if you elect to stop receiving such information at any time.

All personal information collected by Riverview Hotel Singapore is only made available to those authorised individuals who need to handle that information for the purposes outlined in this policy. In some circumstances, personal information may also be disclosed outside Riverview Hotel Singapore.

For example, we may disclose personal information to third parties to whom Riverview Hotel Singapore contracts out specialised functions (such as mailing houses and printing companies). In such cases we will require an undertaking from such persons to comply with applicable privacy legislation and that they do not use the personal information for any purposes beyond the scope of our contract with them.

Personal information may also be disclosed to third parties for the purpose of completing your transaction with us (for example, your credit card provider), providing the goods or services you have requested (for example booking a tour or accommodation for you where the supplier is not part of Riverview Hotel Singapore) and for the purposes of associated administration (for example frequent flyer number and expenditure details will be sent to the relevant airline).

Riverview Hotel Singapore will also disclose personal information when required by law and may disclose it when reasonably necessary to assist an enforcement body or to lessen or prevent a threat to individual or public health or safety.
