  4. HOW DO WE ADJUST OUR SERVICES TO YOUR INTERESTS?I

    Marketing of our products and the services of our Service Providers

    For this purpose, we process the personal data provided by you when creating the Profile and data regarding your activity on the Website, which is recorded and stored via cookies. Activity data relates in particular to such data as search history, clicks on the Website, visits to the main pages of the Website and its subpages, login and registration dates, data on the use of specific services on the Website, history and your activity related to our e-mail communication with you.

    Profiling. We use the data mentioned above to create your profile representing your interests and preferences of places and geography. Then, based on this professional profile, we adjust marketing information about our products and services of our Service Providers that may be of interest to you.

    Remarketing. To reach you with our marketing messages outside the Website, we use the services of external providers. These services consist of displaying our marketing messages on websites other than the Website.

    For this purpose, external providers install, for example, the relevant code or pixel to download information about your activity on the Website. After considering our interest and your interests, rights and freedoms, we decided that marketing combined with profiling will not excessively interfere with your privacy or be an excessive nuisance to you. As part of the marketing of our Service Providers' products and services, we do not transfer your personal data to these Service Providers; in this way, we limit the circle of people who have access to your personal data. We only use data about your activity on the Website. We are interested in what offers of places and trips you are looking for and which offers interest you, not what you do on other websites.

    We respect your will, and we make it easier for you to exercise your rights. For this purpose, we provide the ability to quickly withdraw consents from receive marketing messages by e-mail from the level of e-mail messages received. At the same time, we treat the withdrawal of consent to receive such messages as an objection to profiling for marketing purposes.


  5. WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH?I

    We provide your data to the following categories of recipients:

    Service Providers and Users

    We provide data to Service Providers only when you make a reservation through the Website. Service Providers or Users with whom we share your personal data independently determine the purposes and methods of processing this data without being subject to our instructions in this regard. Therefore, we are not responsible for their actions and omissions.

    Service Providers

    We provide your personal data to Service Providers that we use to run the Website. Service Providers to whom we transfer your personal data, depending on contractual arrangements and circumstances, are either subject to our instructions as to the purposes and methods of processing this data (processors, e.g. cloud hosting service, online marketing systems, systems for displaying notifications web push, systems for sending e-mail messages, systems for analysing traffic on the Websites, systems for analysing the effectiveness of marketing campaigns) or they independently define the purposes and methods of their processing (administrators, e.g. remarketing campaign services). You can find a list of the providers we use here. The list is regularly updated.

    Location. Our suppliers are based mainly in Poland and other European Economic Area (EEA) countries, e.g. in Ireland. Some of our suppliers are based outside the EEA. In connection with the transfer of your data outside the EEA, we ensured that our suppliers guarantee a high level of personal data protection. These guarantees result, mainly representing the obligation to use standard contractual clauses adopted by the Commission (EU).

    You have the right to withdraw any consent you gave at the time of registration to the Website and when you use individual services and functionalities offered on the Website. Withdrawal of consent is effective since the withdrawal of consent. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the processing carried out in accordance with the law before its withdrawal.

    Right to object to the use of the data

    You have the right to object at any time to the use of your personal data, including profiling, if we process your data based on our legitimate interest, for example, in connection with the marketing of our products and services of our Service Providers, statistics for the use of individual Website functionalities and facilitating the use of the Services, as well as satisfaction testing.

    Objecting to receiving marketing messages regarding our products or services of our Service Providers will also mean that you object to the processing of your personal data, including profiling for these purposes. If your objection turns out to be justified and we have no other legal basis for processing your personal data, we will delete your data, the use of which you objected to. Legal basis: Art. 21 GDPR

    Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

    You have the right to request the deletion of all or some of your personal data. We will treat the request to delete all personal data as a request to delete the Account.

    Despite the request to delete personal data, we may retain specific personal data to the extent necessary to establish, assert or defend claims in connection with the objection or withdrawal of consent. This applies in particular to personal data, including name, surname, e-mail address and application history, which we retain for handling complaints and claims related to the use of our services. Legal basis: Art. 17 GDPR

    Right to restriction of processing

    You have the right to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data.

    a) when you question the correctness of your personal data - then we will limit their use for the time needed to verify the accuracy of your data, but no longer than seven days;
    b) if the processing of your data is against the law, and instead of removing the data, you will demand a restriction of its use;
    c) when your personal information has ceased to be necessary for the purposes for which we have collected or used it, but you must determine, assert or defend claims;
    d) when you object to the use of your data, then the restriction occurs for the time needed to consider whether, due to your particular situation, protection of your interests, rights and freedoms outweighs the interests that we process when processing your personal data. Legal basis: Art. 18 GDPR

    Right of access to data

    You have the right to obtain confirmation from us whether we process your personal data, and if this is the case, you have the right to:

    Right to data portability

    You have the right to receive your personal data that you provided to us and then send it to another personal data controller of your choice, e.g. another operator of similar websites.

    When will we fulfil your request?

    If you make a request by exercising the rights mentioned above, we will comply with this request or refuse to comply as soon as possible, but no later than one month after we receive it. However, if - due to the complexity of the request or the number of requests - we will not meet your request within a month, we will meet it within the next two months, and we will inform you in advance about the necessary extension.

    For technical reasons, we always need 24 hours to update the settings you choose in our systems. Therefore, you may receive an e-mail from us during the system update, even though you have already opted out of receiving it.

    Reporting complaints, inquiries and requests

    You can submit complaints, inquiries and requests to us regarding the processing of your personal data and the exercise of your rights.
