The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will enter into force in the European Union and we take the opportunity to improve the experience of the users of our website and the applications we use.
Nothing changes with your current settings. We rather improve the way we describe our practices and how we explain the options you need to update.
At our property we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Read this policy to learn important information about how we use personal data collected from you or provided to us.
What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will enter into force on May 25th 2018, establishes consistent rules for data protection across Europe. It applies to all companies, regardless of their location, which process personal data for natural persons residing in the European Union. The concept of processing has a broad definition and refers to everything related to personal data, including the way a company handles and manages data, such as how it collects, stores, uses and destroys that data.
Although many of the principles of this regulation are in fact an extension of the existing EU data protection rules, GDPR has wider scope and stricter standards, and provides for significant financial penalties. For example, it sets stricter conditions for obtaining consent to the use of certain types of data and extends the rights of individuals to access their data and the transfer of such data. Failure to comply with the GDPR can result in significant financial penalties, which may amount to up to 4% of the company’s annual general income for certain infringements.
The GDPR is the new European Privacy Statement (EE 2016/679) which will enter into force on May 25th 2018 for companies that maintain databases, not allowing the use of data collected so far without the re-consent of the user.
Your personal data will never be made available to third parties for advertising or other purposes.
If you change your mind, you can request us, at any time, to delete your personal data (e-mail, name, etc.) from our database.
Commitment and preparation of the accommodation
Data protection is a key issue for our accommodation. We comply with the current data protection laws of the European Union, and we will also comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We have already begun the preparatory procedures for complying with the GDPR Regulation, headed by our relevant data protection team.
We have made the following commitments:
The Data Policy determines how we process the users’ personal data. We will make sure that we inform the people who use our services for our Data Policy. This will be achieved through alerts that will appear on the site to ensure that users understand how we use their data and what are the choices they have at their disposal.
We will continue to provide users with ways of using their data. We have created data deletion capabilities.
We have set up a team of people to help us ensure proper documentation of our compliance. In addition, we hold regular meetings with regulatory and legislative principles, as well as with privacy experts, to continue improving our methods of protecting personal data.
