Oh-Barcelona obtains users' information at different points throughout our website. We capture details of both users who make bookings and those who register on the website to obtain information, as well as of the accommodation owners. This personal data will be stored within a file held by Oh-Barcelona. The user is expected to provide true, exact, complete and current information.
We request personal information on our accommodation booking form and owner’ registration form, as well as on the users’ sign-up form. A user must provide contact information (such as name, email address, passport number and address) and in some cases financial information (such as credit card number, expiry date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fulfill the user’s requests. If we have problems processing a booking, we use the information to contact the user. Additionally, we use the information for the purposes of commercial communications related to the services provided by Oh-Barcelona. Both users who book through Oh-Barcelona’s website and users who register on the website give their express consent to receive such email communications.
When a client books accommodation through our website, we share personal information such as name, email address, passport number, age, gender and contact details with the owner of the apartment. We encourage you to contact the owner regarding the use of your personal information. The information we collect is used for booking purposes, to notify you of your reservation status and to ask for feedback about your stay and is not shared with any third party which is not directly involved in the booking process. All credit card processing is done by Oh-Barcelona.

Oh-Barcelona uses the following cookies on its website.
- First-party cookies: these cookies are sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain managed by Oh-Barcelona, which provides the service requested by the user.

Use of information
Users’ personal information is used only to carry out the services offered on our website.
We store information that we collect through log files to create a profile of our users (both users who book accommodation as well as users who register on our website). A profile is stored information that we obtain through the preferences selected by site users. Consequently, collected information is not tied to the users’ personally identifiable information. We do not share our customer profile with other third parties.
No other third parties advertise on our website.
Like most standard web site servers, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyse trends, administer the site, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc., are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We send an evaluation/follow-up email to clients who have booked an apartment after they have left their accommodation. Any user who does not wish to receive a follow-up email should contact us by email on the day of departure from their accommodation at email@example.com.

Registered users and clients

Any content and information in this area will be kept strictly private and in no case given to a third party, unless essential to provide a contracted service or for the sending of commercial communications.
