First things first – your privacy is important to us. That might be the kind of thing all these notices say, but we mean it. You place your trust in us by using airbnbplug.co.ke services, and we value that trust. That means we’re committed to protecting and safeguarding any personal data you give us. We act in our customers’ best interests and we are transparent about the processing of your personal data.
If you’ve used us before, you know that Booking.com offers online travel-related services through our own websites and mobile apps, as well as other online platforms such as partners’ websites and social media. We’d like to point out that all the info you’re about to read generally applies to not one, not two, but all of these platforms.
In fact, this single privacy statement applies to any kind of customer information we collect through all of the above platforms or by any other means connected to these platforms (such as when you contact our customer service team by email).
We might amend the Privacy Statement from time to time, so we recommend you visit this page occasionally to make sure you know where you stand. If we make any updates to the Privacy Statement that will impact you significantly, we’ll notify you about the changes before any new activities begin.
