Due to obligations under applicable law, it may be necessary to store the data for longer than the aforementioned period.

Outdated and unnecessary data will be destroyed in an appropriate manner. Personal data are entered in the register as received from the data subject and are updated as the data subject notifies the Foundation.

8. Disclosures and transfers of personal data

The Foundation may use subcontractors and service providers for the maintenance of its services, customer service, management of reservation data, surveys, and customer notifications.

Such third parties may not use your personal data for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and specified by the Foundation. The Foundation requires such third parties to keep your data confidential and to ensure an adequate level of security to protect your personal data.

Your personal data may be disclosed in accordance with the requirements of a competent authority.
