During your stay at The Grand Hotel & Suites Toronto
During your stay, we record your itemized spending to properly assemble your folio, which sets out your room rate and other expenses billed to your room. We also record this information to comply with financial reporting requirements, including those imposed by our auditors and government regulators. Information particular to your stay may also be stored (i.e. health issues, payment difficulties). This stay specific information is stored and is combined with information from previous visits that you have made to that hotel. In addition, we may retain the content of any document (including comment cards, electronic documents such as e-mails and other similar forms of communication) that you send us before, during or following your stay. This information may be shared with employees of the hotel but will not be shared with any third party.
How do we store this information?
At the Hotel or Resort
The Grand Hotel & Suites Toronto goes to great measures to ensure that all Personal Information is kept in a secure location, be it a database or filing cabinet. Furthermore, we take steps to ensure that only designated individuals have access to this information.
In Our Guest Reservation System
In order to serve you better we also store certain guest information in our Guest Reservation System which is a secure customer database stored on a dedicated server. The stored information includes guest name, address, phone numbers and credit card number. When you make another reservation at a later date, this information could be used.
We also store other transaction information including the number of stays you have had and the number of nights of each stay. We do not share this information with other hotels.

It is important to note that any e-mail communication is not secure. This is a risk inherent in the use of e-mail. Please be aware of this when requesting information or sending forms to us by e-mail (for example, from the Contact Us section of our web site). We recommend that you do not include any confidential information (i.e. credit card information) when using e-mail.
