Introduction
Al Palmento b&b is committed to protecting the clients’ privacy and takes her responsibility regarding the security of client information very seriously. We will be clear and transparent about the information we are collecting and what we will do with that information.

This Policy sets out the following:

  • What personal data we collect and process about you in connection with your relationship  with us as a client;
  • Where we obtain the data from;
  • What we do with that data;
  • How we store the data;
  • Who we transfer/disclose that data to;
  • How we deal with your data protection rights;
  • And how we comply with the data protection rules.
  • All personal data is collected and processed in accordance with Italian and EU data protection laws.

What personal data we collect
Personal data means any information relating to you which allows us to identify you, such as your name and contact details.
We may collect personal data from you when you book a overnight stay or when you contact us.

Specifically, we may collect the following categories of information:

  • Name, date of birth, nationality, gender, occupation, relationship status, no. of children, home address, e-mail address, telephone number, passport or other recognized personal ID card numbers and details;
  • Medical history and personal details about your physical or mental health;
  • The communication you exchange with us or direct to us via letters, emails, instant messaging, calls, social media and my website.

What we use your personal data for, why and for how long
Your data may be used for the following purposes:

  • Providing services you require;
  • Contacting you in the event of an booking change or cancellation;
  • Customer Services communications: we use your data to manage your relationship with us as my client and to improve our services and enhance your experience with us;
  • Provide tailored services: we use your data to provide information we believe is of interest to you, prior to, during, and after your stay with us and to personalise the services we offer to you;

We may also process your personal data for one or more of the following:

  • To comply with a legal obligation;
  • You have consented to us using your personal data;
  • To protect your vital interests or those of another person (e.g. in case of a medical emergency);
  • It is in my legitimate interests in operating (e.g. for administrative purposes).

We will not retain your data for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose it is being processed for. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.
We must also consider periods for which we might need to retain personal data in order to meet our legal obligations or to deal with complaints, queries and to protect our legal rights in the event of a claim being made.
When we no longer need your personal data, we will securely delete or destroy it. We will also consider if and how we can minimise over time the personal data that we use, and if we can anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you or identify you, in which case we may use that information without further notice to you.

Security of your personal data

We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal data, and to protect it against accidental loss, destruction or damage.
We may disclose your information to a third party for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy (see below). We require all third parties to have appropriate technical and operational security measures in place to protect your personal data, in line with Italian and EU law on data protection rules.

Sharing your personal data
Your personal data may be shared with the following third parties for the purpose described in this Privacy Policy:

  1. Other website for the purpose of booking and hosting your stay;
  2. Social media: You may be able to access third party social media services through our website or before visiting our website. As a result your information will be shared with your social media provider. Please refer to the privacy policy of these third-party social media providers to find out more about these practices.

Your Data Protection rights
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • Request information about whether we hold personal information about you, and, if so, what that information is and why we are holding/using it.
  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Object to automated decision-making including profiling, that is not to be subject of any automated decision-making by us using your personal information or profiling of you.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request transfer of your personal information in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party (commonly known as a right to “data portability”). This enables you to take your data from us in an electronically useable format and to be able to transfer your data to another party in an electronically useable format.
  • Withdraw consent. In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

If you want to exercise any of these rights, then please submit a completed request form available at this form.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights).
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
Changes to our Privacy Policy
Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and any changes to the statement will be communicated to you by way of an e-mail or a notice on our website.
