Personal Data Collected
Various forms for registration, reservation, purchases, inquiries and surveys may request that you give us contact information (such as your name, mobile number, mailing and/or e-mail address), demographic information (such as your age, gender and nationality), and profile data (such as your preferences in products and services). Information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used to provide products and services and/or marketing and promotional purposes by NWR and its subsidiaries, and may be shared with our promotional partners. Personal Data is never sold or leased to any third parties.
When subscribing to our newsletter, a visitor needs to provide the following mandatory information: Salutation, First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Mobile Number, Government ID, Gender, Date of Birth, Place of Issue and Country.
Participation in activities, transactions and/or offerings is on a voluntary basis, which allows the data subject to decide whether to disclose any Personal Data.
We may also collect information about you from third parties who are legally allowed to share the same to us for legitimate purposes in order to provide you with our products and services.
Basis, Use and Purpose for Processing of Personal Data
NWR collects and processes Personal Data for the following purposes:
- Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements;
- To provide information about the Company and what we are doing;
- To inform you of NWR’s products, services, events, activities, loyalty and rewards offerings, exclusive invites, benefits, surveys, and other direct marketing advertisements based on your interest and preference as may have been provided or made known to us, from which you can unsubscribe at anytime;
- To facilitate the delivery of NWR’s products and services;

Certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of NWR’s Internet servers. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address is gathered in order to enhance your online experience.
If the law so permits, NWR may disclose user information in special cases when we have reasons to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against an individual or entity who/that may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with NWR's rights or property, other NWR users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
Security of Personal Data is extremely important to us. Reasonable measures are in place to ensure that the Personal Data collected and processed are accurate and complete based on the information submitted to us, and adequate physical, technical, and organizational security measures are in place to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Personal Data. However, this does not guarantee absolute protection against certain risks involving the processing of Personal Data, such as when systems are exposed to targeted cyberattacks, malware, ransomware, and computer viruses or when manual records are accessed without authority.
Further, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Data, NWR cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we exert our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's computer hard drive for record keeping purposes. Cookies make using our Site easier by, among other things, saving your passwords and preferences for you. These cookies are restricted for use only on the Site, and do not transfer any Personal Data to any other party. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet provider whenever you're surfing the Web. When you request pages from NWR, our servers log your IP address. NWR collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our Site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you are anonymous to us. We may use your IP addresses in cooperation with your Internet provider to identify you if we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the law and our Terms and Conditions or to protect our service, sites, customers, or others.
