LifeVillas solely processes personal data in line with the legal provisions, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
This means that your personal data is only processed in the following two cases: Either there is a statutory exception from the general prohibition of processing personal data or you explicitly agreed to us processing your data.

This Privacy Policy serves to inform about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect and process. Furthermore, LifeVillas uses this Privacy Policy to explain the rights the persons concerned are entitled to in this regard.

As the controller, LifeVillas has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures for this processing to ensure the best possible protection of the personal data processed through our websites and apps. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always have security flaws, so that absolute (100%) protection cannot be ensured.

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors and our Site is governed by the Privacy Policy. This Policy explains how and for what purposes we use the information collected about you.

Please read this Policy carefully. By using http://www.LifeVillas.com/ (the Site)  and any services we offer, you are agreeing to be bound by this Policy in respect of the information collected about you.

If you have any queries or comments about the policy, our use of your personal information or wish to unsubscribe from messages from us, please get in touch by writing to the ‘Privacy Manager’ at the above address.

In general, we use the information we collect about you to:

  • provide, supply, transmit and upload any of the products, services, facilities and capabilities displayed or referred to on the Site;
  • pass your messages on to Accommodation Providers, villa owners;
  • provide information services to relevant third parties
  • improve the features, products and services we offer;
  • support our own marketing and promotion effort;
  • keep you informed with information relevant to your interests.

Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a of the GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations, for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is required for the fulfilment of the contract, whose contracting party is the data subject, as is the case for example for processing operations required for the delivery of goods or the provision of a service, processing is based on Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b of the GDPR. The same applies to processing operations required for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for instance in cases of enquiries regarding our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring a processing of personal data, for instance for the fulfilment of fiscal obligations, said processing is based on Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. c of the GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. Processing operations, which are not included in any of the aforementioned legal bases, are based on this legal basis if processing is required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or third party, provided that the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedom of the data subject are not predominant.

Cookies and Tracking

Like many sites and software, we use ‘cookies’ to enable us to personalise your visits, simplify the signing-in procedure, keep track of your preferences and to track the usage of the Site. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in the hard drive of your computer by your browser. Your browser will have the option to prevent sites using cookies (your browser’s help screen or manual will tell you how to do this), but please note that this may reduce the functionality of the Site

Like all sites, our servers automatically record ‘log files’ containing information about the volume and characteristics of the Site traffic e.g. IP address, numbers of pages viewed, length of time spent on site etc. We use log files to build pictures of how the Site is used that help us to monitor and improve our service. We cannot identify you from your log files.

We use Google AdWords remarketing services to advertise on third party websites (including Google, facebook, instagram) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who have not yet completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookie to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our website. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.

 

Cookies are small text files, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive by your browser. You can delete these at any time or prohibit them from being stored in the first place by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. Most browsers accept cookies automatically.
LifeVillas for instance uses temporary “cookies” in the reservation system as well as in line with the analysis of the use of the website with “Google Analytics”.

Many cookies have a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string, through which web pages and servers can be allocated to the precise web browser, in which the cookie was stored. This enables distinguishing the visited web pages and servers as well as the data subject’s individual browser from other web browsers, which contain other cookies. A specific web browser can be recognised and identified by means of the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, LifeVillas can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services, which would not be possible without using cookies. Using cookies, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interest of the users. As already pointed out, cookies allow us to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to simplify the use of our website for the users.

You can prevent the placement of cookies on your computer by our website at any time by means of the appropriate setting in the web browser being used and in doing so, permanently object to the placement of cookies. Furthermore, cookies, which were already placed, can be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software. This is possible with all standard web browsers. If you deactivate the placement of cookies in the web browser you are using, the full range of all functions on our website may not be able to be used.

Data erasure and storage

Personal data is erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage is no longer applicable. Furthermore, our company only stores personal data if and insofar as this was stipulated by European or national legislative authorities in acts, laws or other provisions, which LifeVillas is subject to.

Contact option via the website

Due to legal provisions, LifeVillas’s website contains information, which enables quick electronic contact as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address and email address. If a data subject contacts the data controller via email or using the contact form, the personal data submitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data submitted by the data subject on a voluntary basis is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject.

This personal data is not communicated to third parties. The data is solely used for the processing of the communication.

The legal basis for processing the data is art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f of the GDPR (“legitimate interest”) or if your communication is aimed at concluding a contract, then art. 6 sec. 1 lit b of the GDPR is also the legal basis for the processing.

We will erase your personal data as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of its initial collection. This is the case, when the data is no longer required to respond to or process your enquiry. However, even after processing, it may be required to store personal data, to meet our contractual or legal obligations.

Newsletter

You can also receive a newsletter; if

  • you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the data collected via the respective input mask; in this case, we will first send you a confirmation mail in the double-opt-in process, to check whether or not the owner of the email address, as the data subject, authorised the receipt of the newsletter; or
  • you purchase goods or services from us and submit your email address in this connection; we can use this address, to send a newsletter pertaining to our own similar goods or services. You can object to the use at any time, without transmission costs incurring other than those according to the base rate.

When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of subscribing as well as the date and time of subscription. The collection of this data is required, to be able to retrace a possible misuse of the data subject’s email address at a later point in time and therefore, serves the legal protection of the data controller.

To optimise the content of our newsletter, reservations made via different computers and devices are collected. If you do not want such data to be used for the creation of newsletters, you can unsubscribe to the newsletter.

The data subject can unsubscribe to our newsletter at any time. A respective link for the purpose of unsubscribing can be found in each newsletter. Alternatively you can also cancel your newsletter subscription by sending an e-mail to contact (@) LifeVillas.com.

Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a of the GDPR (“consent”) or art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f of the GDPR (“legitimate interest in fair direct marketing”) serves as the legal basis for the processing of your data for the purpose of sending the newsletter.

The newsletters from LifeVillas.com contain so-called web beacons. A web beacon is a miniature picture embedded in emails, which are sent in HTML format, to enable a log file recording or a log file analysis. This enables a statistical analysis of the success or failure of an online marketing campaign. Personal data is not collected in the process.

The data collected via the web beacons contained in the newsletters is stored and analysed by the data controller, to optimise the sending of the newsletters and to better tailor the future newsletters to the interests of the data subjects. This data is not communicated to third parties. Data subjects have the right to revoke the informed consent given via the double-opt-in process at any time. This personal data is erased by the data controller after a revocation. Unsubscribing to a newsletter is automatically considered a revocation by LifeVillas.

Data automatically collected and stored when accessing the website

The LifeVillas website collects a series of general data and information with each access to the website by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following is collected:

  • the browser type used and versions,
  • the operating system used by the accessing system,
  • the website, from which the accessing system or a data subject accesses our website (so-called referrer),
  • the sub-websites, which directly access our website via an accessing system,
  • the date and time of access to the website,
  • an Internet protocol address (IP address),
  • the Internet Service Provider of the accessing system and
  • other similar data and information, which serve averting danger in the case of attacks on our information technology systems.

The purposes of your processing are

  • to properly deliver the contents of our website,
  • to optimise the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it,
  • to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as
  • to provide the law enforcement authorities with the required information for prosecution in the case of a cyber attack.

Therefore, LifeVillas analyses this data and information on the one hand statistically and furthermore, with the objective of increasing data protection and data security in our company, to ultimately ensure an ideal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data from the server log files are stored separately from all personal data indicated by a data subject.

The legal basis for processing is art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f of the GDPR (“legitimate interest regarding the aforementioned purposes”).

The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of its initial collection. In the case of data collection to enable making the website available, this is the case when the respective session ends; at the latest however, after seven days.

The conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve the identification of the data subject. Provided that the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie allows LifeVillas as well as Google to determine whether a data subject, who accessed our website via an Adwords ad, generated revenue; i.e. made or aborted a purchase. Neither LifeVillas or other advertisers of Google AdWords obtain information from Google, with which the data subject can be identified.

“Cookies” are used in the process. The information created in this manner on the use of this website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address is truncated to the last three digits by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, so that a distinct allocation to a natural person is no longer possible. The complete IP address is only transmitted to a Google sever in the USA and stored there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by your browser in line with Google Analytics is not consolidated with other data from Google.

You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by accessing the page for the deactivation of Google advertising (https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/). Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of data created by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the Browser Add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. You have to execute opt-out on all systems used, to prevent the collection by Universal Analytics across multiple devices. However, in this case, we would like to point out, that you may not have unrestricted use of all functions of the LifeVillas website. By using this website, you agree to the processing of the collected data in the manner described above and for the aforementioned purposes.

The data is prepared in such a way that user campaigns, targeting data, publisher and specific advertisements are attributable.

Improving Online Advertising: Adform processes similar internet log files with information on website visits, advertising, overlays and engagements related to the classification of identifiers, in particular high priority categories, in order to improve the effectiveness of online advertising. Categories are for example interest in the product:

  • Frequency of the campaign exposition.
  • Clicks, advertising overlays and interactions with marketing campaigns and the LifeVillas website.

Cross device extension to ensure effective media output and limitation of the advertising impact on the consumer: Aggregation of different devices and identifiers of the same users with the objective of better limiting the combined number of advertising overlays for individual users and improving the segmentation.

Protection from advertising fraud: Adform is in a position to provide high quality advertising services as techniques are applied that recognize fraudulent or malicious behaviour. The type of data used by our algorithms to verify users are all types of internet log files which we have from online visits and advertising overlays focused specifically on click patterns, advertising overlays, engagements, type of IP addresses and cookie data.

Synchronization of advertising and publishing platforms ensures the connectivity of ecosystems and enables the universal deployment of Adform services: Today most online advertisements are automatically handled and supplied by servers including those used by Adform. In order to achieve this Adform platforms synchronize online identifiers of users which are pseudonym identifiers such as random values in cookies or mobile device identifiers for advertising.

  1. Google Fonts

LifeVillas uses fonts provided by Google (“Google Fonts”) on its website. The operating company of Google Fonts is the Google Inc. . („Google“)
(1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.)

For this, your browser loads the required font into your browser cache when LifeVillas is opened. This is necessary so that the browser can display a visually improved version of our texts.

  1. Online presence in Social Media

In order to promote our products and communicate with users, customers and interested parties LifeVillas is represented on different social media networks. Depending on the headquarters of the social media companies, data may be transferred to outside the European Economic Area (e.g. the USA) and processed there. Some social media networks in the US abide by the data protection regulations of the “EU-U.S. Privacy Shield” agreement.

Usually the processed data is also used for market research and advertising purposes. In effect this means that profiles are being created based on user behaviour that are used for a targeted advertising approach for example. This is generally made possible by the use of cookies that for instance contain information concerning users’ habits, interests and used deviced.

LifeVillas uses personal data in social media in order to inform users about our product and improve our communication with them as well as with interested parties and those who are customers already.

We would like to point out that by using social media networks you agree to the terms and conditions as well as privacy policy of the individual networks. We assume no liability for infringements of the law caused by the operators.

For detailed information about the individual processing of personal data, possibilities to object or the enforcement of rights, we have assembled following links of the social media companies we are featured on:

 

SSL encryption

We secure your data for payment transactions as well as all other personal data. Therefore, our website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and for the protection of your confidential as well as personal contents during transmission for payment transactions and all other data transmissions. You can see for yourself whether the SSL encryption is activated. You can recognise the use of the encryption by the address line of your browser. The data transmission is only encrypted if the address line in the browser shows “https://”. The browser line “https://” shows the use of the SSL encryption; now, payment transactions take place encrypted. It is impossible for third parties to read your confidential data, when SSL encryption is activated. Therefore, only transmit data if SSL encryption is activated and in cases of doubt, please do not hesitate to contact us.
