​What your personal data is used for

Your personal information is needed so that we can register you as our customer and so that we can offer your holiday home for renting via our service. Your personal data is used to confirm your identity when you join the service and later to keep in touch, so that we can keep you updated with, for example, changes, updates and renewals of our service, as well as possible temporary interruptions to our service.

Your personal data is maintained in our customer register. Some data, for example contact details, may also be displayed on our website with your permission, to allow users of our service to contact you with cottage rental inquiries.

Your personal data is processed because we need confirmation of your identity before we can add your holiday apartment to our service. We confirm the identity of all our partners before we accept a new holiday home, so that we can offer our service users a safe and reliable accommodation rental service. In the future, your personal data will be needed to maintain our service and to collect annual fees via invoice once a year. We will retain relevant data for up to six years for legal and accounting purposes.
