Who we are (Controller):

“Go4Safari” is a website addressed to anyone who wants our services for the organization of events for any purpose that serves them, which was created, maintained and owned by the sole proprietorship of Spyridon Vrontakis of Nikolaos (hereinafter referred to as “We” or “Business”). We consider the management of your personal data a very serious matter and that is why we make every effort to fully comply with all the rules of their processing, as they arise from Greek and European law (you can find the relevant legal framework at the end of text). We collect certain information about visitors and any registered users of ‘Go4Safari’ which may lead to their direct or indirect identification. According to the applicable legal framework, this information constitutes personal data, you as visitors or registered users are the “data subjects” and we, as a Company, are the “controller” of your data. The purpose of our policy is to explain to you in as simple, understandable and concise a way as possible the following:

– Which of your data do we process, for what purpose and with what legal basis – How long do we store your data,
– Who are the recipients of your data,
– What are your rights and how can you exercise them,
– What legal interests do we pursue,
– What applies to your consent when it is required,
– What applies to personal data collected through cookies.

Before we start, however, we would like to introduce you to the basic principles for processing your data:
“Go4Safari” is committed to processing your data in a fair and transparent manner, always in accordance with the applicable legal framework, as reflected mainly in the General Data Protection Regulation (G.D.P.R.) and Law 3471/2006. What this means in practice:
– We collect and process your data only for specified, explicit and lawful purposes,
– We collect and process only the data that is necessary for the purposes we set,
– We make every effort to ensure that your data is accurate, providing you, where appropriate, the possibility of correction/deletion,
– We keep your data for a period of time that is required for the purposes we set,
– We make every effort to safeguard the security of your data against unauthorized or illegal processing and accidental loss, destruction or damage. In the context of the protection of the data we process, we apply a series of appropriate technical and organizational measures, adopt internal security policies, properly train its staff, who are committed to maintaining confidentiality and privacy, while utilizing a series of technologies that ensure the security of of your data (e.g., SSL certificate, encryption, certified hosting providers). As mandated by information security and data protection principles, technical and organizational security measures are regularly monitored and, if deemed necessary, updated and adapted to new best practices.

Which of your data do we process and for what purpose:
As a general rule, we only collect and process data from visitors/users of “Go4Safari” when they provide it directly and voluntarily, therefore simply visiting the website does not necessarily mean that we process your data. However, this rule cannot be applied absolutely in two cases: to the data collected with the help of cookies and to some data, which is collected automatically during your visit.

Data we collect automatically:

Due to the nature and the way the internet works, as soon as you visit our website, our server (forwarder) records your IP address, which constitutes personal data, even if as a website we cannot identify you ourselves based on this item. The reasons (legal basis and purpose) for which we collect your IP address, together with the date and time of connection and keep them in special files (log files) are as follows: On the one hand, we have a legitimate interest in processing this data in order to ensure the security of networks, information and services from accidental events or illegal or malicious actions that compromise the availability, authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of stored or transmitted data (e.g. control of “denial of service” attacks); , but also to establish, exercise or support legal claims. In the context of ensuring information security and after weighing in relation to the rights of users, at “Go4Safari” we use the services of reCAPTCHA, for which Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply. On the other hand, we have a legal obligation to keep these details, as protecting your data from malicious users is a priority and our duty. In addition, we may, based on the applicable framework, be asked for information by police or judicial authorities, which we should be able to provide, always under strict terms and conditions.

Go4Safari Contact Form:
Data we process:

We provide the visitors of “Go4Safari” with the possibility to contact us through a contact form. The information necessary for communication is: Name, Surname, email, dates, number of adults/drivers, number of children/passengers.

Purpose of processing – Legal basis:

We process data based on your consent, which you provide by affirmative action before sending your message, in order to provide you with a response. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, without prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing based on the consent prior to its withdrawal. Merely sending an email or submitting a contact form does not make you a member of “Go4Safari”, therefore it is not in itself sufficient reason to include you in our database nor do we retain your information for marketing purposes. Attention: Messages sent using the contact form are not covered by any kind of privacy (see terms of use). Therefore, you should not include sensitive information about yourself or third parties in your messages.

Information on managing newsletters:

“Go4Safari” periodically sends newsletters to its users who have subscribed to the list of accepted updates. In every newsletter you receive you have the option to unsubscribe, with a relevant link at the end of the email. The legal basis for the processing of your email address is your consent, which you can freely withdraw using the relevant link at the end of the email. “Go4Safari” reserves the right to delete any recipient from the newsletter lists without justification. The administrators of “Go4Safari” make every effort to ensure the smooth operation of the newsletters, however it is always possible that problems of a technical or organizational nature may occur. To send the newsletters “Go4Safari” uses the Mailchimp service. Through this service and with the use of appropriate technologies, we gather statistics on the opening of the bulletins and the clicks on them, with the aim of improving our relevant services. For any issue that may arise as well as for any relevant information regarding the operation of the newsletters, please contact us at [email protected].

Where and for how long do we store your data?

Your data is stored in the Company’s system, which is hosted on a server that uses resources from Hostinger’s data center infrastructure in the Netherlands. The management of the server is carried out with the appropriate methods, exclusively and only by strictly limited personnel of the Company itself, without the mediation of third parties. As a general principle, we keep your data exclusively and only for a period of time that is necessary for the respective processing purpose. There are clearly certain storage periods for each category of data. If you send a message through the contact form to “Go4Safari”, your message and information will be deleted within 3 months from the date of the last message we receive from you. The rules for determining the retention period result from ensuring data protection rules, best practices in the field and safeguarding the proper functioning of the Company. However, in addition to the parameters set by the Company itself, there are also conditions set by the competent authorities that must be taken into account. We point out that even if you submit a request for the deletion of your data, it is possible for us to retain some of it, solely due to legal obligations or for the establishment, exercise and support of legal claims.

What are your rights regarding your data and how can you exercise them:

Based on the General Data Protection Regulation, you have a number of rights in relation to the processing of your data by the Company.

Specifically, as for “Go4Safari”, you have:
– Right of access, i.e., to submit a request to be informed if we are processing data and, if so, which ones, and some more information, such as e.g., the purpose of processing, the recipients etc.,
– Right to correction, i.e., to request the correction or completion of your data,
– Right to erasure, i.e., to request, under certain conditions, the erasure of your data,
– Right to restriction of processing, i.e., to ensure, under conditions, the restriction of the processing of your data by us,
– Right to object, i.e., to object at any time to the processing of your data based on our legitimate interest (commercial promotion, information),
– Right to data portability, i.e., to request the data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, as long as this is deemed technically feasible based on the provisions of the GDPR.

Finally, in the event of a data breach, which may put your rights and freedoms at high risk and if it does not fall under one of the exceptions provided for in the G.D.P.R., we have the obligation to inform you without undue delay.

Compliance with the legal framework for data processing and, in this context, the exercise of your rights, is a priority for the Company. For this reason, we have the right to request the provision of additional information, which is necessary to confirm your identity before exercising your rights. In principle, we are obliged to respond to your request immediately and within one month at the latest. If deemed necessary, taking into account the complexity of your request and the number of requests pending for processing, this deadline may be extended by a further two months. In any case, we will inform you as soon as possible and, in any case within one month of the submission of your request, about its progress and the reason for any delay in satisfying it. In the event that your requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular due to their repeated nature, the Company may either impose the payment of a reasonable fee, taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or carrying out the requested action, or refuse to proceed with your request. In the event that you consider that we do not comply with the legislation on personal data protection, you have the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority (in Greece, the Personal Data Protection Authority).
