- Link, geolocation (only with your consent) and navigation data; and
- Personal preferences: This includes your cookie preferences.

When we ask you to enter your personal data to access a feature, some data are mandatory fields, as they are data we need to enable you to access this feature (for example, to register your booking we need your first name and surname).

It is important that the personal information shared about you is correct and up-to-date.

We do not process any personal data that may qualify as "sensitive" (information relating to racial or ethnic origin, political, philosophical or religious opinions, trade union membership, health or sex life) within the meaning of the Personal Data Regulations.

In this regard, it is specified that our Site is not intended for children and that we therefore do not process any data relating to them.

We undertake not to transfer your personal data to third parties, unless otherwise specified in Article 1.3.

1.2) For what purposes are your Personal Data collected and processed?

The Personal Data listed above may be collected and processed for the following purposes:

Booking management

The processing of your data is necessary to keep you informed about the status of your reservation, the summary of your reservation, accept your payment, etc.

Access to customer service

We process your Personal Data as part of our customer service to respond to your requests, in particular using the contact form.

Improving our services

We process your browsing and booking data for analysis and statistics. In fact, this data allows us to analyze how you use our Site and improve its ergonomics and quality.


As part of your subscription to our newsletter, we process your data to manage your subscription and send you specific information by email or SMS according to your preferences. We may also contact you via push notifications if you subscribe to this service.

Processing for marketing purposes requires your consent. You can therefore unsubscribe from our communications at any time.

If you have given us your consent to receive communications from us, via our newsletter or push notifications, we may use the information you have provided for the following purposes:

- Sharing information about our current events, products, services and offers;
- Recommendations about certain products or services that may be of interest to you; and

While using our website, you may receive information from third parties with whom we collaborate to offer you certain services. These may be

- Financial institutions and accredited storage centers;
- Fraud detection and prevention entities; and
- Service providers related to marketing, communication and advertising.

The Personal Data collected from the Site is mainly processed by the Data Controller's internal services.

2. Internet browsing security

2.1. integrity of your data on the Internet

The Site has appropriate security measures in place to prevent any loss, unauthorized use or access, modification or disclosure of your Personal Data

All personal data collected is stored on secure servers. The Data Controller has also implemented procedures to manage any personal data breach.

2.2. malicious uses

It is recommended that you only connect to secure networks, preferably private networks. Be aware of the risks involved in public Wi-Fi networks.

Irrespective of the Data Controller to whom you have voluntarily transmitted your Personal Data and taking into account the nature of the Internet network, other operators, without any connection to the Data Controller, may collect it without your consent, in particular during your Internet browsing. We therefore recommend that you install anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your computer and update it regularly.

2.3. misuse/phishing

The Data Controller will never ask you for personal information by e-mail.

If you receive an e-mail on behalf of the Data Controller asking you to provide sensitive personal information (bank details, data relating to your personal life, etc.), do not reply and forward this e-mail to us so that we can take the necessary action.

You should only provide your account information once you have logged in to the Site directly via your browser.

3. Cookie policy

A cookie is a text file that can be stored in a dedicated space on your Terminal's hard disk when you visit a website. A cookie allows its issuer to identify the Terminal on which it is stored, for the duration of the cookie's validity or registration.

When you visit the Site, information related to browsing your Terminal (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) may be recorded through cookies installed on your Terminal, according to the choices you have made regarding cookies and which you can modify at any time.

3.1 What are cookies used for on our Site?

It is likely that only the issuer of a cookie will read or modify the information contained therein.

When you connect to the Site, the Data Controller may, subject to your choices, install several cookies on your Terminal in order to recognize your Terminal's browser during the validity period of the cookie in question. The cookies we issue are used for the purposes described below.

The cookies we issue allow us to

carry out studies and establish statistics and volumes of visits and use of the various elements that make up our Site (sections and content visited, routes), allowing the Data Controller to improve the interest and ergonomics of its services;
adapt the presentation of the Site to the display preferences of your Terminal (language used, display resolution, operating system used, etc.) when you visit the Site, depending on the display or reading hardware and software your Terminal contains; and
implement security measures, for example, when you are asked to reconnect to content or a service after a certain period of time.

3.2. your choices regarding cookies

There are several ways to manage cookies. Any settings you select may affect your Internet browsing and your access to certain services that require the use of cookies.

You can choose, at any time, to express and modify your wishes regarding cookies through the means described below.

In particular, you can configure your browser software so that cookies are stored on your Terminal or, on the contrary, so that they are rejected, systematically or according to their origin.

You can also configure your browser software so that you are offered the option of accepting or rejecting cookies occasionally, before a cookie is likely to be stored on your Device. For more information, see "How to make your choices depending on the browser you use" in Article 4.2.3 below.

3.2.1 The cookie agreement

The recording of a cookie on a Terminal is essentially subject to the will of the Terminal user, who can express and modify it at any time and free of charge through the choices offered to them by their browser software.

If you have accepted the registration of cookies in your browser, on your Terminal, the cookies embedded in the pages and content you have viewed may be temporarily stored in a dedicated area of your Terminal. They will only be readable by your transmitter.

3.2.2 Refusing cookies

If you refuse to accept cookies on your Terminal, or delete cookies already stored on your Terminal, the quality of the functioning of the services offered by the Site will not be impaired.

However, you will no longer be able to benefit from various features that may be necessary to navigate certain areas of the Site. This would happen if you tried to access content or services for which the installation of cookies is strictly necessary (for example, booking a stay). This would also be the case if the Data Controller - or its service providers - could not recognize, for technical compatibility purposes, the type of browser used by your Terminal, its language and display settings or the country from which your Terminal appears to be connected to the Internet.

If necessary, the Data Controller declines any responsibility relating to the consequences for the operation of its services resulting from the impossibility of registering or consulting the cookies necessary for its operation and which it has refused or deleted.

We would like to point out that some cookies cannot be deleted as they are strictly necessary for the technical operation of the Site.
