General Data Protection Regulation

 

The topic of data protection is very important to us. Here you will find valuable information about your personal data protection.

Scope of application

This data protection declaration explains to users the type, scope and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by ACASA Suites, Binzmühlestrasse 72, 8050 Zurich, phone +44 44 552 78 78, e-mail: info@acasasuites.com, the responsible provider of this website.

Access data/server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. Access data includes:

  • name of the web page accessed
  • date and time of retrieval
  • the amount of data transferred
  • notification of successful retrieval
  • the type of browser, its version and the user's operating system
  • referrer URL (the URL referring to our website, e.g. Google search)
  • IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the protocol data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete indications.

 

Handling of personal data

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes name, e-mail address or telephone number. Data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone also count as personal data.

Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the user consents to the data collection.

 

Protection of personal data

We have taken technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data of users from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. Our security measures are continuously revised and optimised in line with technological developments.

When you use a service on our website, your personal data is transmitted to us. To prevent these from falling into the wrong hands, we encrypt them using the SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer). The SSL procedure is currently the most common and most secure data transmission procedure on the Internet.

 

How does the SSL procedure work?

The SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure protects data that a customer sends to a company's server via the Internet. SSL provides triple protection:

  • Your entries to be transmitted are encrypted.
  • It is ensured that the form is only sent back to the server from which it was opened.
  • The system checks whether the data reaches its respective recipient completely and unchanged.
  • SSL is used whenever you see a small (usually green) lock on your screen in the status bar of your browser.

 

Dealing with contact requests

When contacting us, the user's details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

 

Handling newsletter data

If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data that we collect is used exclusively for sending the requested information and is not passed on to third parties. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data and the e-mail address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time.

 

Use of third-party services and content

It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We endeavour to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we inform the users about this.
