We would like to inform you that the legal grounds for receiving and handling your personal data are:

a)      that processing is necessary for the provision and sale of our products to you (Regulation, Art. 1(b));

b)      to the extent that the collection and processing is not covered by a) then the legal ground will be your explicit consent to the processing of your personal data for the above specific purposes (Regulation, Art. 1(a)). You may withdraw your consent at any time by sending us written notice of your wish to withdraw. This may be done in any written format including e-mail and fax;

c)      that processing is necessary for compliance with our legal obligations (Regulation, Art. 1(c));

d)      that processing is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another individual (Regulation, Art. 1(d)).

In carrying out this balancing exercise between our legitimate interests to carry out direct marketing and your interests and rights, we believe that because, as you can see below, you are able to effortlessly object to the use of your Personal Information and thus terminate any direct marketing, since you might be better off knowing about our special and/or promotional offers, because all offers which are made through direct marketing are sent to all our guests and there is no discrimination in terms of the guests that receive them, and because the variety of services that we offer are all inherently connected to each other, we believe that your fundamental rights and interests do not prohibit us from carrying out direct marketing, even though we will always strive to first obtain your consent before carrying out such actions.
