QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS
APPENDIX A – ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA DATA SUBJECTS
This Appendix outlines certain additional information that we must provide to persons in the European Economic Area as well as certain rights such residents have with respect to the processing of their Personal Information under the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). For persons in European Economic Area, the term Personal Information means information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
A. Legal Bases for Processing of Personal Information
We process the Personal Information collected for the purposes described in the sections entitled "Collection of Personal Information", "Information We Collect", and "Use of Personal Information" in our Policy. The legal basis for our processing activities include processing Personal Information as necessary to comply with our contractual obligations, compliance with our legal obligations, protecting the safety of our employees, guests and others, for our legitimate business interests, and pursuant to your consent. The particular legal basis for the processing of your Personal Information is based on the purpose for which such information was provided or collected.
We use Personal Information, such as name, address, email and credit card information, as necessary to perform Services. For example, we are not able to provide our Services and products according to our contracts unless you provide us with certain necessary Personal Information. This collection and processing of the Personal Information is based on Article 6 paragraph 1(b) of the GDPR (necessary for the performance of a contract with you).
We may also process your Personal Information if we have received your consent, to respond to requests from you or to take actions in our legitimate interest, such as for marketing purposes or to otherwise inform you of our business operations, and to improve our products and services. Please note that if we rely on consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time, but such withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your Personal Information prior to the withdrawal.
B. Data Retention
See "Retention of Personal Information" above for our retention policies.
C. Data Subject Rights
Data subjects of the European Economic Area have the following rights:
- Access, Correction and Erasure Requests: You have the right to:
- contact us to confirm whether we are processing your Personal Information;
- receive certain information on how your Personal Information is processed;
- obtain a copy of your Personal Information;
- request that we update or correct your Personal Information; and
- request that we delete Personal Information in certain circumstances.
- Right to Object to Processing: You have the right to request that we cease processing of your Personal Information based on our legitimate business interests, including profiling, unless we are able to demonstrate a compelling legitimate basis for such processing or we need to process your Personal Information for the establishment, exercise, or defense of a legal claim. You also have the right to object, at any time, to processing of your Personal Information for direct marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
- Right to Restrict Processing: You have the right to request that we limit the processing of your Personal Information:
- while we are evaluating or in the process of responding to a request by you to update or correct your Personal Information;
- where such processing is unlawful and you do not want us to delete your data;
- where we no longer require such data, but you want us to retain the data for the establishment, exercise, or defense of a legal claim; and
- where you have submitted an objection to processing based on our legitimate business interests, pending our response to such request.
- Data Portability Requests: You have the right to request that we provide you or a third party that you designate with certain of your Personal Information in a commonly used, machine-readable format. Please note, however, that data portability rights apply only to Personal Information that we have obtained directly from you and only where our processing is based on consent or the performance of a contract.
If you believe our processing of your Personal Information violates the GDPR, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work, or the place of the alleged violation.
D. Submitting Requests
European Economic Area data subjects can submit requests by completing this form. We will respond to all such requests within the timeframe required under the GDPR.
