Then, to the professional profile thus created, we adjust marketing information about our products and the services of our Service Providers that may be of interest to you.

    Remarketing. In order to reach you with our marketing messages outside the Website, we use external suppliers. These services consist in displaying our marketing messages on websites other than the Website. For this purpose, external providers install, for example, the appropriate code or pixel to download information about your activity on the Website.

    Combining ours and your interests, rights and will, we believe that marketing combined with profiling will not interfere with your privacy and will not be too burdensome for you. As part of the marketing of products and services of our Service Providers, we do not pass your personal data to these Service Providers; that`s the way we limit the number of people who have access to your personal data. We only hold data regarding your activity on the Website. What we are interested in is what offers of places and trips you are looking for and which offers can be of interest to you, and NOT whatever it is you do on other websites.
    We respect Your will and facilitate You to carry out Your rights. For this purpose, we provide the ability to easily withdraw consents to receive marketing messages by e-mail from the level of received e-mails. At the same time, we treat withdrawal of consent to receive such messages as a protest against profiling for marketing purposes.

    Service providers and Users
