- The Holder, in charge of Data Processing
The Holder in charge of the processing of users data on this Site is SIRA S.r.l. ("SIRA") with head office in via Monteortone, 19 - 35031 - Abano Terme Padua, Italy. In case further data is required for the use or purchase of services and products supplied by third parties, they will be treated by these third parties.
- Type of Personal Data to be gathered and used
SIRA collects personal data specifically and voluntarily shared by the users of this Site. Although it is required to register as a user to the Site in order to use and purchase selected products or services, and it is necessary to provide some personal data to elaborate and perform some requests, it is possible to access several areas of the Web Site without giving any of your personal data. However, which details are necessary to supply the product or service requested by the user is specified on all pages where personal data is collected.
- Registration of the users
If the user chooses to register, we will collect the personal information which is manually given by filling out a registration form with name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number, preferences, user name, password and information to contact other people.
From the moment of making a reservation or enquiring about a reservation from this Site, the user is asked to provide personal information via a form to be filled out on-line with the personal profile. Such information includes for example: name, address, date of birth, house and/or office telephone number, fax number, e-mail address. Information on the preferences and requests of each user can be collected as well.
This data is used for the purpose of handling and finalising the reservation and the supply of products or services requested as well as to communicate the status of the order to the User via e-mail, telephone or fax.
If the order is placed for somebody else, the personal information of other people will be asked for from the interested party, such as names, surnames, e-mail addresses and preferences.
We recommend that you insert such information with the consent of the immediately interested party. Such information is used exclusively for the purpose of booking a room and/or hotel services and, on request of the user, to send out their booking confirmation.
The user’s personal data (such as name, surname, e-mail address) is obtained every time the user asks a question or makes a suggestion or asks for information or assistance.
As with the majority of servers, we use logfiles. The log files include IP addresses, the type of server, the ISP, the reference and exit pages, the type of platform, the time data (date/hour), and the number of clicks. These files are useful to analyse the tendencies, run the site, trace the navigation course, diagnose the server problems and collect general demographic information on the use of the aggregated IP. The addresses and all the other registration data are not connected to identifiable or retraceable personal information.
Cookies are short texts sent to the user browser by the visited website and saved on the user’s computer. Cookies contain information that the site is able to read when visited again later.
Some of these cookies are necessary for correct site operation, others allow the site to safely save information on the user’s visit such as, for example, the preferred language, user name and other information. This can help facilitate the next site visit and improve the user's experience in the site
Cookies are used for various purposes, we use them, for example, to track navigation paths, to make displayed information more pertinent, to better understand how visitors use the site and to count the number of visitors we host on a page.

Once the user registers on the site, the user’s personal information are associated with the cookie and remain on the user’s computer until manually deleted.
