Third-party data (e.g. when booking for a friend)

In the event that the Guest provides third-party data, they declare that they have the third party’s consent and undertake to provide the interested party -the data holder- with the information contained in this Privacy Policy and GDPR Notice, duly exonerating us and our data processor from any liability in this regard. However, we may carry out the necessary verifications to verify this fact, adopting the corresponding due diligence measures, in accordance with the data protection regulations.

Sensitive Data Policy

Unless specifically requested, we ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, on or through the Services or otherwise to us, any Sensitive Personal Data (including: social security numbers, national identification number, data related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion, ideological or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background, trade union membership, or administrative or criminal proceedings and sanctions).

Use of Services by Minors

The Services are not directed to individuals under the age of sixteen (16), and we request that they not provide Personal Data through the Services.

1. To manage the bookings made, including payment management (where applicable) and the management of the user’s requests and preferences.

In addition, the personal data collected as a requirement under law (i.e. Greek Government Regulations) may be used for public health purposes.

Data Retention

We will retain your Personal Data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law or if the Guests requests their withdrawal from us, opposes or revokes their consent. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:

• The length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the Services to you (for example, for as long as you have an account with us or keep using the Services or if you have a booking that has not yet been fulfilled).

• Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them or keep data related to public health in case of epidemics).

• Whether retention is advisable considering our legal position (such as, for statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations)

• Legitimate interest for processing your data

• The data processing required in fulfillment of the aforementioned purposes that require the Guest’s consent cannot be undertaken without said consent.

Likewise, in the event that the Guest withdraws their consent to any of the processing, this will not affect the legality of the processing carried out previously. To revoke such consent, the Guest may contact us through the appropriate channels.

By the same token, in those cases in which it is necessary to process the Guest’s data for the fulfillment of a legal obligation or for the execution of the existing contractual relationship between us and the Guest, the processing would be legitimized as it is necessary for compliance with said purposes.

If we do, we will treat the combined data as Personal Data as long as it is combined.
