PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT:

 

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.” Please make sure you know our privacy policy before you agree to our terms and conditions. We will notify you in the case of any changes in our privacy policy.

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

  • If you do not want to use cookies, you can personally change the settings in your Internet browser. Keep in mind, however, that we will not be able to provide you with the optimum service, if you disable cookies tracking.

  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

  • “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, home address, payment information (including credit card/debit card numbers), email address, and phone number.

We need this information so that we are able to verify it against your reservation details. We treat this information with strict confidentiality and we maintain it in our records for legal reasons.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Reservation Information. In general, you should be aware that providing personal data over the internet or otherwise can never be guaranteed as being completely safe.

PROMOTIONAL OFFERS FROM US:

Whenever we require your consent for the processing of your personal data such processing will be justified pursuant to Article 6(1) lit. (a) of the GDPR. This article in the GDPR describes when processing can be done lawfully. In addition, in some cases, the domestic law of the given country obliges us to process part of the data due to legal obligations, e.g. tax obligations or those related to state security, and in this event the basis for the processing is the Article 6(1) letter c.
