In this charter, “AccorGroup” means:
Good to know!
You probably don’t know this, but the hotel you are booked to stay in is probably not owned by Accor SA or one of its family of companies.

Accor SA has communicated the principles set out in this charter to all of the Accorbranded hotels and their respective owners. We will do our upmost to ensure that all hotels comply with the applicable data protection laws and this charter in relation to the processing of your personal data.
