The retention periods are dependent on the purposes of the processing carried out by Aureto and take into account, in particular, applicable legal provisions that stipulate a specific retention period for certain categories of data, any applicable limitation periods and the recommendations of the CNIL (Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés = National Commission for Informatics and Liberties) with regard to certain categories of data processing.

Our vendors have limited access to your personal data to perform the tasks they undertake on our behalf.

VI - How do we protect your personal data?

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures in accordance with applicable laws to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration and against unauthorised disclosure or access.

We constantly update our security measures to keep pace with advances and developments in technology. For card purchases, we work with payment service providers that adhere to the PCP protocol and help us verify directly with your bank that the card authorises you to make purchases, in compliance with personal data protection standards. Our payment service providers process your card data in accordance with the PCI DSS international security standards developed by the credit card companies VISA, MasterCard, Diners, American Express and JCB, and all other payment methods. This means that your card data are processed with a very high standard of security. When you pay by card, we reserve the right to carry out an identity check. You can also help keep your data safe by taking the following security measures:

* Change your password regularly and use a combination of letters and numbers

* Make sure you use a secure internet browser

VII - What about cookies and other technologies?

A "cookie" is a connection record that designates a text file which may be stored, subject to your acceptance, in a specific area of your terminal's hard drive when you visit the website. A cookie file enables its sender to identify the terminal in which it is stored for the duration of the cookie's validity or storage, and is therefore considered to be personal data.

We (and third parties acting on our behalf) use cookies and similar technologies to process your personal data when you visit our website.

They are used to register you, deliver advertising targeted to your preferences, combat fraud, analyse the performance of our products and fulfil other legitimate purposes, such as learning about which pages of our website are visited most frequently, as well as user activity and the length of time users spend on our website. These technical tools also allow us to evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing and thus the attractiveness of our products and services to our customers.

As with most websites of the same type, certain data are automatically recorded via a protocol. These data include protocol addresses (IP addresses), the type of browser used, the Internet provider, referring and final pages, the operating system, date and time.

Cookies do not store any data provided by users during an online booking or when registering a customer account. Cookies identify your browser (rather than you) and may not be sufficient in themselves to reveal your identity.

You can set your browser to block these cookies, although it is specified that this may affect your ability to perform certain operations, use certain functions and access certain content on our website.

In addition to the cookies used among other things to identify browsing history and provide statistical tools, there are also the technologies of our partners, which are subject to their own personal data protection policies. We will inform you about the purpose of the cookies we are aware of and the options you have to make a choice regarding these cookies.
