Collection and treatment of personal data

Personal data are data which can be used to identify a person or to contact them.

You may be asked for your personal data when you contact Buffet Altafulla s.a. El Buffet d'Altafulla may share these personal data and use them according to this Privacy Policy. Similarly, we may also combine them with other data to provide and improve our products, services, contents and advertising.

These are some examples of the categories of personal data that can be collected by El Buffet d'Altafulla and the purposes for which we may process such data.

What personal data do we collect?

  • When you access the services offered we can collect the data you provide, such as your name, postal address, phone number, email address, contact preferences or credit card data.
  • We do not collect sensitive data such as religion, sexual orientation or health data. However, for certain treatments and access to the spa service, particularly saunas, we provide medical information on such services in a clear and explicit way, but we never keep any such information.
  • If there is no explicit form on data protection signed by the customer, an email will be sent to you within the legal deadline to confirm your registration in our database. If the e-mail address is not available, these data will last as long as is legally stipulated in our own files that are necessary for invoicing and posting in our accounts, and there will be no communication with the customer generated.

Purposes of personal data processing

  • The personal information we collect allows us to keep you informed about events. They also help us to improve our services, contents and advertising. If you do not want to be on our mailing list, you can unsubscribe any time by sending a e-mail to the following address: buffet@elbuffetdealtafulla.com
  • We also use personal data to develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, contents and advertising.
  • We may occasionally use your personal information to send you important notices, such as communications about purchases and modifications to our terms and policies. You cannot choose not to receive these communications, as they contain important information for your interactions with El Buffet d'Altafulla.
  • We may also use your personal data for internal purposes, including audits, data analysis, in order to improve products, services and communications.
  • If you participate in a draw, contest or promotion, we may use the information you provide us with to administer those programs.

Collection and treatment of non-personal data

El Buffet d'Altafulla also collects non-personal data, i.e. data in a format that prevents them from being directly associated with a specific person. We may collect, process, transfer and disclose non-personal data for any purpose. These are some examples of categories of non-personal data that can be collected by El Buffet d'Altafulla, and the purposes for which they may be used:

  • We can collect data such as language, zip/post code and country or e-mail to learn more about our customers' behaviour and improve our products, services and advertisements.
  • Neither do we collect data about customer activities. Consolidated data are regarded as non-personal data for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

If we combine non-personal and personal data, the combined data will be treated as personal data as long as they are still combined.

El Buffet d'Altafulla's website, online services, interactive applications, email messages and advertisements may use cookies and other technologies such as "pixel tags" and "web beacons". These technologies help us to understand user behaviour better, tell us which parts of our website are being visited and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We will treat the data collected by means of cookies and other technologies as non-personal data. However, to the extent that local laws consider IP addresses and other similar identifiers as personal data, we will also treat these identifiers as personal information.

If you do not want us to perform this monitoring, do not click on graphic text or links in emails.

The "pixel tags" enable us to send email messages in a readable format for customers and know whether the message has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

El Buffet d'Altafulla may occasionally provide certain strategic data to its marketing partners. El Buffet d'Altafulla will only share your personal data to provide or improve its products, services and advertisements, and will not share them with any third party for their own marketing purposes.

Other third parties

We may be obliged to disclose your personal data for legal reasons, in legal proceedings and/or upon request by a Spanish public or governmental authority. We may also disclose information about you if we believe such disclosure is desirable or necessary for reasons of national security, to enforce existing laws or for other important public order reasons.

We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to guarantee the enforcement or application of our terms and conditions or to protect our operations or users. In addition, in the event of a reorganisation, merger or sale, we may transfer all personal data collected to the third party.

El Buffet d'Altafulla takes precautions - including administrative, technical and physical measures - to prevent personal data from being lost, stolen, unduly used, disclosed, altered or destroyed or accessed in unauthorised fashion.

Minors

We do not voluntarily collect personal data on children under the age of 18 years. If we discover that the personal data collected correspond to an under-18, steps will be taken to correct such data as soon as possible. In cases in which we publish pictures of minors in our social media, based on attendances at the Campus or entertainment activities, the unequivocal prior express written consent of the parents is obtained. El Buffet d'Altafulla has well-defined procedures in place to ascertain the real age of minors, although these procedures are not infallible, so it is utterly essential to have the commitment of the legal representatives to facilitate identification and authorization if this were necessary.

The El Buffet d'Altafulla is a private venue and delimits activities that may generate an image of a child, and any unauthorised access by a minor to such facilities constitutes violation of a rule which, to guarantee the strict enforcement of the data protection law for minors, would generate a disproportionate investment, hence in these cases direct responsibility falls to the legal representative of the minor/s.

In the case of competitions, and more expressly those related to sports federations, the processing of data with express reference to pictures or images is subject to the conditions established by each one of the federations in their partnership agreement.
