3. Cookies, and other Tracking Technologies

PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT uses cookies and other similar technologies on the Platform. We may also allow our business partners to use their cookies and other tracking technologies on the Platform. As a result, when you access or use the Platform, you will provide or make available certain information to us and to our business partners.

While you may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings, we do not change our practices in response to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application. We track your activities if you click on advertisements for PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT services on third party platforms such as search engines and social networks, and may use analytics to track what you do in response to those advertisements.

HOW PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT USES AND PROCESSES THE INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE OR MAKE AVAILABLE

We use and process Information about you for the following general purposes:

  • to enable you to access and use the Platform;
  • to operate, protect, improve and optimize the Platform, PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT’s business, and our users’ experience, such as to perform analytics, conduct research, and for advertising and marketing;
  • to help create and maintain a trusted and safer environment on the Platform, such as fraud detection and prevention, conducting investigations and risk assessments, verifying the address of your listings, verifying any identifications provided by you, and conducting checks against databases such as public government databases;
  • to send you service, support and administrative messages, reminders, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and information requested by you;
  • where we have your consent, to send you marketing and promotional messages and other information that may be of interest to you, including information sent on behalf of our business partners that we think you may find interesting. You will be able to unsubscribe or opt-out from receiving these communications in your settings (in the “Account” section) when you login to your PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT account;
  • to administer rewards, surveys, sweepstakes, contests, or other promotional activities or events sponsored or managed by PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT or our business partners; and

HOW PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT USES AND PROCESSES USER COMMUNICATIONS

We may review, scan, or analyze your communications with other users exchanged via the Platform for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, investigation, product development, research and customer support purposes. For example, as part of our fraud prevention efforts, the Platform may scan and analyze messages to mask contact information and references to other websites. This helps to prevent fraudulent actors from asking Guests to send them money outside of the Platform, such as by bank transfer or other money transfer methods. We may also scan, review or analyze messages for research and product development purposes to help make search, booking and user communications more efficient and effective, as well as to debug product offerings.

We will not review, scan, or analyze your communications for sending third party marketing messages to you. We will also not sell these reviews or analyses of communications to third parties. We will also use automated methods to carry out these reviews or analyses where reasonably possible. However, from time to time we may have to manually review some communications. By using the Platform, you consent that PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT, in its sole discretion, may review, scan, analyze, and store your communications, whether done manually or through automated means.

OW TO CHANGE OR DELETE YOUR INFORMATION, OR CANCEL YOUR PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT ACCOUNT

You may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in your PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT account by logging in to your account. If you would like to cancel your PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT account entirely, you can do so by logging in to your account. Please also note that any reviews, forum postings and similar materials posted by you may continue to be publicly available on the Platform in association with your first name, even after your PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT account is cancelled.

KEEPING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURE

We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your Personal Information against the unauthorized access, destruction or alteration of your information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, and no method of storing electronic information, can be 100% secure. So, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your transmissions to us and of your Personal Information that we store.

YOUR PRIVACY WHEN YOU ACCESS THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND RESOURCES

The Platform will contain links to other websites not owned or controlled by PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT.

These other websites may place their own cookies, web beacons or other files on your device, or collect and solicit Personal Information from you.

SPECIAL FEATURES AND PROGRAMS

Referral service and requesting for references

The Platform provides a referral service that allows you to invite your friends and contacts to use the Platform. The Platform also allows you to ask your friends and contacts to write a reference for you, to be published on your PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT profile.

We may integrate the Platform with third party sites such as Facebook, so that you can send invitation messages or requests for references via the third party site itself. These messages will be sent by the third party site, and PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT does not collect or retain the contact information that is used to send them.

You may also send invitation/request emails via the Platform itself, in which case we will ask you for the email addresses to send these emails to. You can type in the email addresses manually, or you can request PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT to import the contacts in your email account address book(s). In both cases, we will use the information sent to us for the sole purpose of sending your friends and contacts a one-time email, inviting him or her to visit the Platform or to write a reference for you. With respect to referrals, we will also store the email addresses of your invitees to track if your friend joins PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT in response to your referral.

If you request us to import your contacts, we will collect, but not store, the username and password for the email account you wish to import your contacts from. We will use this information only for the purpose of importing your contacts.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We may change how we collect and then use Personal Information at any time and without prior notice, at our sole discretion.

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time. If we make material changes to the Privacy Policy, we will notify you either by posting the changed Privacy Policy on the Platform or by sending an email to you. We will also update the “Last Updated Date” at the top of this Privacy Policy. If we let you know of changes through an email communication, then the date on which we send the email will be deemed to be the date of your receipt of that email.

It’s important that you review the changed Privacy Policy. If you do not wish to agree to the changed Privacy Policy, then we will not be able to continue providing the Platform to you, and your only option will be to stop accessing the Platform and deactivate your PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT account.

COOKIE POLICY

PORTOSANTELPIDIOVACANZE.IT uses "cookies" in conjunction with the Platform to obtain information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your device (e.g., your phone or your computer) for record-keeping purposes. For example, a cookie could allow the Platform to recognize your browser, while another could store your preferences and other information.
