Personal data collected concerning you is intended for ACE HOTEL HOLDING.
For the forms of processing listed above, we will share your data with duly authorised personnel, namely:

  • Our internal departments: Human Resources, Payroll, Accounting, Internal Communication, Marketing

  • Our subcontractors: Ultrõ, Misterbooking, Digitaleo, Brioude Internet

These sub-contractors are subject to an obligation of confidentiality and may use your data only in conformity with our contractual provisions and applicable legislation. Outside the cases outlined above, we undertake not to sell, rent, assign or grant access to your data to third parties without your prior consent, unless forced to do so for a legitimate reason (legal obligation, combat fraud or abuse, exercise the rights of defence, etc.).

The data we collect regarding you is not intended to be transferred outside the European Union. However, should your data be transferred to another country and especially outside the European Union, we guarantee that we will take all appropriate measures to ensure a sufficient level of protection for your data, such as:

  • Transfer to “safe” countries, i.e., ones providing a significant level of protection for your data

  • Request necessary authorisations from the Supervisory Authority prior to any data collection if the latter requires it, depending on the country

  • Obtain guarantees of security and confidentiality from subcontractors, e.g., by imposing strict contractual clauses, by reserving the right to check them regularly and by conducting audits

4. Security and confidentiality of personal data

The security and confidentiality of the personal data you entrust to us is a priority for us.
We guarantee that we take all technical and organisational measures relevant to the nature of the personal data you provide to us and the risks posed by its processing to preserve the security of your personal data and to prevent it from being distorted, destroyed, damaged, or accessed by unauthorised third parties.

To this end, we have put in place technical and organisational measures such as granting access to your client space through password + user name.

The security and confidentiality of personal data is also based on the best practices of each individual. So, we recommend that you not share your user name and password with third parties, that you always log out of your profile and customer account (especially in the case of linked accounts), close your browser window at the end of your session (especially if accessing the Internet from a computer terminal shared with others), and not save your user name and password in your browser. This will prevent other users from accessing your personal data.

For more information or complaints, you can contact the French data authority: Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (www.cnil.fr).
