The contract specifies which products the customer uses and how guest and other customer Personal Data will be processed within those products. The Personal Data processed by Agilysys is specific to each product and product configuration. Many of our product configurations – for example, software products running on hardware located at a customer’s location – rarely, if ever, involve processing of guest or other customer Personal Data by Agilysys. Guest and other customer Personal Data captured by product includes:

  • Property Management System (PMS) products – rGuest Stay, rGuest Book, rGuest Express Kiosk, rGuest Express Mobile, rGuest Service, Visual One, Lodging Management System (LMS), Insight Mobile Manager – Guest names and other information required by our customers or voluntarily provided by their guests are captured during the booking process, including but not limited to: guest address, telephone, email, company, loyalty programs/ids, preferences, identification/passport numbers, anniversary, and birthdate.

Job Applicant and Employee Data

Agilysys processes Personal Data and certain types of Sensitive Personal Data submitted by job applicants and employees in the course of their application/employment.

Other Types of Processing

Agilysys also processes all of the above Personal Data and/or Sensitive Personal Data for any other legally permissible purpose, including but not limited to: legal compliance, protection of individuals’ vital interests, and, rarely, if Agilysys’s legitimate interests outweigh the fundamental rights of the data subject. Agilysys will only process Personal Data and/or Sensitive Personal Data in ways that are compatible with the purpose that Agilysys collected it for, or for purposes the individual later authorizes. Before we use any Personal Data or Sensitive Personal Data for a purpose that is materially different than the purpose we collected it for or that was later authorized, we will provide the opportunity to opt out. Agilysys maintains reasonable procedures to help ensure that Personal Data and Sensitive Personal Data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

We take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that third-party agents and service providers process Personal Data in accordance with our obligations and to stop and remediate any unauthorized processing.
