Your personal data is collected and processed by VOV for purposes which are strictly connected to the use of the web site and its services (ie property booking). However, your personal data may also be used for other processing operations within the limits of such purposes.

In particular, your personal data shall be processed for the following purposes:

  • when you register with our website we collect your personal data (for example, your personal details, user ID and password, e-mail address, gender) through the relevant registration form in order to provide you with services in reserved access areas of viewsonvenice.com (ie.

  • when you require technical assistance, we collect your personal data in order to provide you with information on net-surfing, Internet browsing or viewing and downloading web pages;

Your personal data is mostly processed by electronic means and in some circumstances by paper-based means, when, for example, the processing of your personal data is required in order to prevent fraud against viewsonvenice.com. Your personal data shall be stored in a way which allows VOV to identify you for the period that is strictly necessary for the purposes for which the data was collected and subsequently processed and, in any case, in accordance with applicable law.

Please report any modification or amendment of your personal data to info@viewsonvenice.com in order to ensure that your personal data is always accurate and kept up-to-date and however adequate and not exceeding the purposes for which your personal data was collected and/or processed.

Your personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties for purposes which are not permitted by law or without your explicit consent.

Your personal data may only be disclosed to third parties when it is necessary in order to process an order. For example, your personal data is disclosed to Banca Popolare di Novara e Verona S.p.A. for the performance of electronic distance payment services, through credit/debit card, when you purchase a product on viewsonvenice.com. Moreover, your data may be disclosed to the police or to judicial authorities, according to law and upon a formal request by such entities, for example in the event VOV needs to prevent fraud on viewsonvenice.com (anti-fraud services). Data processors will also have access to your personal data, as stated in paragraph 2, for the specific purposes stated in the same paragraph. In all the above circumstances, your consent for data processing is not required.

Your personal data may be disseminated to the public after receiving your approval and only for the supply of services on viewsonvenice.com, for example, in order to allow VOV, upon your request, to post your comments and suggestions on viewsonvenice.com, as testimony for viewsonvenice.com.

4. What Happens if You Do Not Disclose Your Personal Data to VOV

Your personal data supplied to VOV (in particular, your personal details, your e-mail address, your address, your credit/debit card numbers and bank code and your telephone number), are necessary for the processing of your request for booking on viewsonvenice.com, or when your personal data needed to carry out obligations arising out of applicable laws or regulations.

The refusal to provide VOV with some of your personal data necessary for performing the above purposes, may consequently prevent VOV from processing your request for booking on viewsonvenice.com or from supplying other services provided on viewsonvenice.com, as for example Customer Care services, to send the newsletter, to post your comments and suggestions on the home page, or to carry out the obligations arising out of laws and other regulations. Failing to provide data may imply, in some cases, a legitimate and justified reason for VOV's refusal to process your request for booking on viewsonvenice.com or to provide services on viewsonvenice.com.

Disclosure of further personal data to VOV, other than that required in order to fulfill legal or contractual obligations, or in order to provide the services required, is, on the contrary, optional and does not have any effect on the use of the web site and of its services on viewsonvenice.com.

In some circumstances and if required, from time to time, we will duly inform you if personal data you are disclosing to VOV is compulsory or optional. We will point out to you whether the disclosure of your data is compulsory or optional by marking with an appropriate font (*), the information that is compulsory or data which is needed required in order to provide the required services on viewsonvenice.com. Failing to disclose optional personal data will not imply any obligation or disadvantage to our users.

5. To Whom Your Personal Data Will Be Disclosed
