PRIVACY

How you can access your personal information

For the purposes of applicable EU data protection law (including the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 –the “GDPR”), we are a ‘data controller’ of your personal information. If you’re a user or visitor in the European Economic Area these rights apply to you. You can access the information that we collect about you by logging in to your account. You also have the right to request corrections of any errors in that data. You can also close the account you have with us at any time. To make an access or correction request, contact our Privacy Rooster using the contact details at the footer’s “Data Protection” form.

You also have rights to object to some processing that is based on our legitimate interests, such as profiling that we perform for the purposes of direct marketing, and, where we have asked for your consent to process your data. These rights are limited in some situations – for example, we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your personal information. In some instances, this means that we may retain some data even if you withdraw your consent.

Where we require your personal information to comply with legal or contractual obligations, then provision of such data is mandatory: if such data is not provided, then we will not be able to manage our contractual relationship with you, or to meet obligations placed on us. In all other cases, provision of requested personal information is optional.

If you have unresolved concerns you also have the right to complain to data protection authorities. The relevant data protection authority will be the data protection authority of the country: (i) of your habitual residence; (ii) of your place of work; or (iii) in which you consider the alleged infringement has occurred. Both personal information and personal data have the same meaning in the context of this Privacy Policy.

5. Information We Collect
(a) Information you voluntarily provide to us: When you sign up for and use the Services, consult with our customer service team, send us an email, or communicate with us in any way, you are voluntarily giving us information that we collect. That information may include either your or your Subscribers’ name, physical address, email address, IP address, phone number, credit card information, as well as details including gender, occupation, location, purchase history, and other demographic information. For example, if you would like to make a reservation at our apartments, we will ask you for information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card type, credit card number, expiration date and room preference to process your reservation. We will use your e-mail address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, might use the other information to contact you for help to process the reservation.

The personal information you provide to us for making a reservation is made available to ROOSTER apartments for the purpose of meeting your reservation request. If you cancel your reservation, the information is stored for record keeping purposes only and is not accessed again. By giving us this information, you consent to this information being collected, used, disclosed, transferred to Greece and stored by us, as described in our Terms of Use and in this Privacy Policy.

This information may include, for example, your IP address, time, date, browser used, and actions you have taken within the application. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer every time you browse the Internet. When users request a page from our site, our servers log the user’s current IP address. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems. This type of information helps us to improve our Services for both you and for all of our users.

We also include Web Beacons in the emails we deliver for you. We use the data from those Web Beacons to create reports about how your email campaign performed and what actions your Subscribers took.

We take steps to ensure that such third parties are legally permitted or required to disclose such information to us. Examples of the information we may receive from other sources include: demographic information, device information (such as IP addresses), location, and online behavioral data (such as information about your use of social media website, page view information and search results and links). We use this information, alone or in combination with other information (including Personal Information) we collect, to enhance our ability to provide relevant marketing and content to you and to develop and provide you with more relevant products features, and services.

We may also, unless prohibited by the Promotion’s rules or law, use the information provided to communicate with you, or other people you select, about our Services. We may share this information with our affiliates and other organizations or Service Providers in line with this policy and the rules posted for the Promotion.

10. Content of Email Campaigns
When you send an email marketing campaign, it bounces from server to server as it crosses the Internet. Along the way, server administrators can read what you send. Email was not built for confidential information. Please do not use ROOSTER Website to send confidential information.

11. Security
When ROOSTER asks you for personal data when making a reservation or purchasing a gift certificate, including your name, address and credit card data, it is transferred over a Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) line provided you are using a SSL enabled browser such as Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc. This ensures that your information is encrypted as it travels over the Internet. This secure mode is enabled before any such information is transmitted from your computer. You will know you are in secure mode when the padlock icon in the lower right hand corner of the computer screen appears in the locked position. In addition, when accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from “http” to “https”. If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you, then ROOSTER will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.

12. Safeguarding Your Information
We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information. After information reaches us it is stored on a secure server that resides behind a firewall that is designed to block access from outside the Company. Our credit card processing vendor uses security measures to protect your information both during the transaction and after it is complete. Our vendor is certified as compliant with card association security initiatives, including the Visa Cardholder Information Security and Compliance (CISP), MasterCard® (SDP), and Discovery Information Security and Compliance (DISC). We also perform annual SOC II audits. If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you may contact us. ROOSTER accounts may require a username and password to log in. You must keep your username and password secure, and never disclose it to a third party. Please, have in mind that we cannot resend forgotten passwords either. We will only reset them.

13. Compliance
Our offices are located in Greece, so your information may be transferred to, stored, or processed in Greece. While the data protection, privacy, and other laws of Greek Democracy might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, we take many steps to protect your privacy, including offering a data processing addendum. By using our Website, you understand and consent to the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of your information to our facilities in Greece and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this policy.

14. Accuracy and Retention of Data
We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, to the extent that you provide us with the information we need to do so. If your data changes (for example, if you have a new email address), then you are responsible for notifying us of those changes. Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold, or process on behalf of a third party, any of your Personal Information. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as long as needed to provide you with our Services. We may also retain and use your information in order to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our Agreements.

15. Access
We will give an individual, either you or a Subscriber, access to any Personal Information we hold about them within 30 days of any request for that information. Individuals may request to access, correct, amend or delete information we hold about them by contacting us here. Unless it is prohibited by law, we will remove any Personal Information about an individual, either you or a Subscriber, from our servers at your or their request. There is no charge for an individual to access or update their Personal Information.

16. Do Not Track Disclosure
“Do Not Track” is a standard that is currently under development. Because it is not yet finalized, ROOSTER adheres to the standards in this policy and does not monitor or follow any Do Not Track browser requests. That said, some of our features may have the ability to monitor or follow Do Not Track browser requests.


CONCLUSION
Your privacy concerns are important to us. We hope this privacy statement has been helpful to you. If you have any questions about this privacy statement or privacy concerns please contact us.
