We collect, use and process personal information when you use the Services as a customer / user or potential customer / user with us. This includes use of the WiFi service, the websites, any applications, or other services we provide, as well as when communications by phone, email, social media or the like.

When you communicate with and provide personal information to other companies, including service providers and partners, this PP does not apply. (mentioned men not limited to: Partners) This also applies where the contact is initiated by or is a result of contact with us via the Services. You must contact the specific company to receive information about the processing of personal information for which they are responsible. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of third parties. Personal information that we receive in connection with your contact with suppliers and which we treat ourselves, as part of the Services, is, however, regulated here. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the privacy policy of all third parties before providing them with information, giving us access to the information, or using any offer or promotion. (especially Partners)

In this PP, we explain how we treat personal information, what kind of personal information the processing involves, and what purposes it serves. This outlines, among other things, how we collect, use and possibly disclose or share personal information when you, as a guest, customer and / or user, use the Services and / or communicate with us in the ways described here. It explains what information we process, as well as how and why, and the legal basis for treatment. We also explain when and why personal information may be disclosed or shared with others.

3. Our Processing of Personal Data
When ordering and / or using the WiFi service as a customer, guest, user or visitor, or using other services, you may be asked to confirm that you are a customer / guest. We may ask you to provide information such as name, phone number, email address, and, in some cases, other contact and identification information. You may also share with us or give access to similar information via your profile with another service provider.

By using the Services, such as our WiFi service, we record these data about you. This information will form the basis of a customer / user profile for managing your customer / user relationship and for communication with you. When you choose to use the Services by logging in through third parties, names, contact details and other relevant information may be transferred between such third parties and us. The purpose is to simplify your use and login, to safeguard your security, including identifying who is using the Services and providing you with relevant information and marketing, and for analysis purposes (see more below).

We will not knowingly collect or request personal information from children under the age of 15, in addition to the information required to log in and use the service. We will not knowingly allow such persons to consent to the processing of personal data with us. We have therefore asked guests / users who are under the age of 15 to inform us of by ticking a separate field for this when logging on to the Services. If we become aware that we have obtained personal information from a child under the age of 15, this information will be removed immediately. If you believe that we hold, or might hold, information regarding a child under the age of 15, please contact us at to have it removed.

The information you provide and which we register is used to improve and simplify the use of the Services, including the next time you use them as a customer, guest, or user. In this context, we will process contact information provided by you, as well as other information necessary to manage the service and the customer / user relationship. This may include information and identification of the device you use (mobile, tablet, PC, etc…). We do this for the sake of safety (including to identify and verify you and your device), ease of use, improved service, and for more customized communications.

If you do not want to provide personal information to us or access to it, we may not provide the Service you request or provide you with the user service and information we and our affiliates offer, in some cases.

The customer and user profile will give you access to My Profile, which includes account administration tools. Here, you can change the way we process your personal information, including deleting or accessing the information we process. You can also get an overview of our treatment and your rights, as well as choose how we and our partners will communicate with you. We describe this in greater detail below.

4. Compilation of Information
We also process your personal information to keep you informed about technical issues with the services, as well as to provide service and relevant tips and marketing, while you as a customer, guest and / or user use the Services, or after your stay / use. This may include sending you information and reminders on SMS or email / text messages (such as technical error information on the services), providing relevant information for your use or your visit, including notification of any good offers or tips that might be of interest.

When you choose to use the Services, depending on your previous use of Services, we may aggregate the information in your customer and user profile to facilitate and target the use of service, management and communication with you. This makes it easier for you to use the Services and helps you get more relevant information. For example, this may include your contact and device information, selected browser language, browser type, and your login information / history. Such a treatment will also enable us and our partners to provide you with more relevant information and service on email and other channels.

In this connection, we refer to our specific Cookie Policy which provides further information on this.

6. Personalization of Profile
We can also process your information by compiling the information in your customer / user profile and your visit history using the Services. This will enable us to provide you with even more relevant and targeted service, information, and marketing via email and other channels. This will increase usability and make our communication with you more customized and relevant to your preferences, desires and needs. In this way, we avoid sharing information with you that you are not interested in.

The purpose of the treatment is to simplify the use for you and the administration for us, while also being able to get more relevant and adapted information according to your own preferences. This we believe will be in line with both your and our legitimate interests, and for certain information necessary to manage the customer and user relationship in accordance with the acceptance given by our terms of use.

If you choose to link the Services with third party services, such as linking to a social network or a specific application, we will process the information necessary to integrate our services with that party's services, marketing, as well as to review and implement measures in case of breach of agreement. We encourage you to review this third-party privacy statement to review how they process your personal information.

We can use (including, but not limited to) third-party providers such as Google Analytics / Ads and Facebook Pixel to analyze user behavior to customize communications with you. Please refer to our Cookie Policy.

8. Customer Support, Security, and Technical Maintenance
We provide user / customer support to assist you if you have technical problems or want assistance with logging in or accessing the Services. On our website, you will be able to contact us by phone or email. To provide you with such support, we will process personal information to identify you and assist you as best we can. This may require the processing of personal data such as name, contact information, unit information, etc...

This makes it possible to eliminate technical errors in our systems and ensure that the Services work properly. This work may include the processing of personal data where necessary.

We also prepare reports and statistics by analyzing the information you have provided us such as names, contact details, and the technical information we collect about your use and your devices. The purpose is to improve our service and give you a better user experience the next time you use our services. If we detect irregular activities using the Services, we will take the necessary action. This may include the processing of personal data.

To improve our communications with you, we perform market analysis. This can be accomplished by linking different data sets that may contain personal information. Personal data in analytical data sets will be anonymised and always deleted after the analysis has been completed.

You will be able to manage your consent to this treatment when you start using the Services or at any time later on My Profile.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data as described in this section may be to administer a contractual relationship based on your acceptance of our Customer / User Terms when you, as a Customer, Guest and / or User, use the Services. It may also be within our legitimate interests in managing and running our business, where it weighs heavier than your privacy. In that case, we have made a specific interest weighing on your need for protection against both of our interests in the treatment. Furthermore, the basis in certain cases may be based on the fact that it is necessary for us to fulfill our statutory obligations or pursue a legal claim, etc., as described above. If no other legal basis exists, our treatment will be based on your consent. In that case, it will be possible for you to withdraw such consent when you do not want us to process your information further in accordance with the consent that has been given.
