You have choices about the data we collect. When asked to provide certain personal information you may decline, but where such is necessary to provide a service or feature, your use of that service or feature may be restricted as a result.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We collect data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our products. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create an account or contact us for support. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our products by, for example, using technologies like cookies – this may collect data about your use of our Digital Products, your device(s) and your location.
We will collect and process the following data about you (the “Information”):
Like most websites around the world we use Google Analytics (GA) to process information about the number of visitors on our site and their behavior.
We use this information to record the number of people using www.beachviewbarbados.com and to better understand where you discover our site (from social media, Google or another site), how you use it and how you move throughout the site.
Google Analytics records your approximate location down to town level, the type device you are using (example: mobile) type of device (example: iPhone), operating system (example: iOS) and browser (example: Chrome). None of this data can be used to identify you.
While Google does record your IP address, we don’t have access to this information. Google modifies it so that you cannot be specifically identified; it only tells us the area you’re in.
GOOGLE ANALYTICS DEMOGRAPHICS
We are committed to ensuring that our website contains content that is valuable and useful to our users.
To help us with this, we have implemented the Google Analytics demographics and interest reporting features on our website.
These tools allow us to review anonymous data regarding the gender, age and interests of website visitors and adapt our website content to better reflect their needs.
Although this information is collected through your Google Ad settings, it is not provided to us in a personally identifiable format. This means we cannot identify what information is about you, and we will not try to figure it out.
To do this, Google Analytics uses a “cookie” on your machine. Read more about Cookies, below and in our Cookies Policy: www.beachviewbarbados.com/Terms-Of-Use/

YOUR RIGHTS IN RELATION TO DATA
You have rights to access, correct, delete your information or to object to or restrict our processing of it in certain situations. No fee is usually required to exercise these rights, but we may need certain information from you.
In certain circumstances, you have the right to:
• Request access to your personal information: this enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it
• Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you: this enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected
• Request erasure of your personal information: this enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below)
• Object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes or where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground. Generally, other than in relation to marketing, our processing of your personal data is in order to allow us to provide you a service, so we will be unable to provide the service to you without processing your personal data
• Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
No fee is usually required – You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you – We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
HOW TO COMPLAIN
