The Information We Collect

 

Website Access Information

Like most website operators, weekend.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request when visitors use the Website. weekend.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how weekend.com’s visitors use the Services. From time to time, weekend.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Services.  weekend.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Services. For instance, weekend.com may monitor the Website to help identify spam.

 

In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using to access the Services, including the type of device, the operating system, device settings, device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings.  To learn more about the information your device makes available to us, please review the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.

 

Like many websites, the Website may use “cookies” to collect information.  A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Weekend.com may use cookies to help identify and track visitors, their usage of the Website, and their Website access preferences. Website visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the  Website, with the drawback that certain features of Website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

 

Personal Information

If you are over 18 years of age, you may choose to create an account in order to save searches, settings and favorites and to manage your email  and notification options.  If you register to create an account you may voluntary give us certain information such as user name, email address and telephone number. We will use your information to manage your account and to send you personalized advertisements for travel offers until you unsubscribe from the respective newsletter or notification service. After you provide your email address, we will send a confirmation email to the email address you have provided and request that you confirm your wish to be sent the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your email address will be deleted automatically. You have the option to unsubscribe at any time.

 

For advertising purposes, we use "advertising identifiers" (IDFA and AAID). These are unique yet non-personalized, non-permanent identification numbers for a certain device that are provided by iOS or Android. The data collected by an advertising identifier is not linked with any other device-related information. We use these identifiers to be able to provide you with personalized advertising and to evaluate your use. If you activate the option "No ad tracking" under "Advertising" in your smartphone's settings under "Data protection", we can only perform the following actions: measure your interaction with banners by counting the number of times a banner is shown without being clicked on ("frequency capping"), evaluate the click-through rate, determine unique use ("unique user") and security measures and combat fraud and troubleshooting. You can delete the advertising identifier in your device's settings at any time ("Reset ad ID"); a new advertising identifier will then be created that will not be combined with the data previously collected. Please note that you may not be able to use all the functions of our App if you limit the use of the advertising identifier.

Google Tag Manager

weekend.com uses Google Tag Manager, a Google application that is used to manage tags on our Website and in our App.

Tags are small code elements that serve, for example, to measure traffic and visitor behaviour, to capture the impact of online advertising and social media channels, to optimise remarketing and the focus on target groups as well as to facilitate the testing and optimising of the Website and the App.

Google Tag Manager serves to manage website tags. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain that does not capture any personal data. The tool ensures that other tags are triggered that may themselves capture data. Google Tag Manager does not have access to this data. If there has been a deactivation at a domain or cookie level, the deactivation will remain in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

We use the information we collect to provide you full access and functionality of the Services.  Accordingly, your information may be used for the following purposes: (i) to provide and improve our services, features and content; (ii) to administer your use of our services and accounts; (iii) to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Services; (iv) to better understand your needs and interests; (v) to fulfill requests or to respond to questions or comments you may make; (vi) to personalize your experience; (vii) to provide you with announcements, notifications and advertisements related to your interests and use of the Services and other communications such as electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails or similar messaging; (viii) to provide service announcements; (ix) to protect against users seeking to hack into the Services; (x) to assess the level of general interest in the Services; and (xi) to provide a more customized experience for our users.

How we share your information

In certain cases you can book offers directly with the third-party provider by means of an interface to the respective booking website. For this purpose, we are entitled to collect certain data from you on behalf of the booking website that is then your contractual partner, including your name, address and credit card information. We then provide this data to the respective third-party provider to enable you to effectively submit your booking request through us.

Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we disclose the potentially personally-identifying information you disclose to weekend.com only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide Services, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country and by using the Services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations or as described above, we disclose personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of weekend.com, third parties or the public at large.  If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if weekend.com or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that weekend.com goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of weekend.com may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, we will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

 

Booking with third-party providers

weekend.com provides a search engine for hotels and flights offered on the booking websites of third-party providers. Accordingly, the offers are booked on the pages of the respective booking websites. If you complete a third party booking, you will be entering into a contract with the booking website directly and not with weekend.com. The data is collected on the respective website directly by the third-party provider and weekend.com is not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites.  Please review the privacy statements on the third party booking websites before providing any personal information. 

Data security

We maintain up-to-date technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data against risks involved in data transfers and to prevent third parties from obtaining knowledge of your data. These technical measures are each adapted accordingly to reflect the current state of the art.

 

Rights to access personal information and revoke consent

You may have the right to request information, at any time, about the data we have stored about you, as well as about its origin, recipients or categories of recipients to whom such data is passed on, and the purpose of the storage of such data.

If you have consented to our use of your data, you are entitled to revoke your consent at any time.

 

We request that you should address all requests for information, information enquiries or objections to the data processing by email to info@weekend.com or to the address specified above.
