Vila Galé regulates the subject matter, the duration of the data handling, the nature, the purpose of the processing, the type of personal data, the categories of the data subjects, the parties’ rights and obligations and it uses third parties to send e-mails and SMS.
The Vila Galé Group transfers the personal data collected at an internally and internationally level, within the scope of its organization, in order to better adjust its services’ offer and convenience.

In addition to these purposes, we use the information collected to tailor our products and services to our clients, to send - at the request of the data subject - information, promotions and awards depending on stays by newsletter, e-mail, SMS or telephone call, and for sending satisfaction surveys and service quality control.
The said communications are about products and services by Vila Galé or its partners we have an agreement with and do not constitute any legal or contractual obligation.

Automated decisions can be made, such as profile definition, in order to better tailor our offer to the needs of our clients and to allow clients who are members of the Vila Galé Club to receive specific promotions and benefits.
