CLAUSE 5: Use and transmission of data

5.1. Data retention period

Your personal data is processed for the period required to achieve the purposes that led to the collection of such data, in order to comply with legal and regulatory obligations, as well as for the period necessary to establish, exercise and protect legal rights [Article 5 of the GDPR].

Your personal data will be retained for the entire duration of your stay or from the performance of any Services from which you benefited, and for ten years after the end of your last stay at HOTEL LUTETIA, unless you exercise your right to remove the data, or if a longer retention period is authorised or imposed by a legal or regulatory provision.

Data relating to payment methods will be kept by HOTEL LUTETIA and its partners until any sums due are paid in full.

5.3. Recipient of your personal data

Your personal data will only be disclosed to the parties named below:

  • Employees of HOTEL LUTETIA who need access to your personal data and who are authorised to process it for the aforementioned purposes and who undertake to respect its confidentiality;
  • The corporate departments of HOTEL LUTETIA, in charge of customer relations, retail, e-commerce, communication, legal affairs, finance, internal audit, IT management and security for the purposes set out in this privacy policy.
  • Third parties acting on behalf of HOTEL LUTETIA, according to our prior instructions set out in a binding contract which complies with the requirements of applicable law and the signing and performance of which are essential for performance of the Services from which you benefit within the Hotel and for which your personal data is necessary.

Disclosure to such third parties is necessary for different reasons, including:

  • IT development and support;
  • Hosting and carrying out marketing and economic studies and marketing campaigns;
  • Verifying your information, authenticating payments and processing orders and payments to third parties who provide credit reports, payment services and order fulfilment services;
  • Disclosure to the competent authorities and/or bodies or to third parties, according to legal obligations or in the context of legal proceedings or other legal request.
5.4. Transmission of your data abroad

The majority of data processing operations are carried out within the borders of the European Union, which also includes processing carried out by our third-party partners.

However, some recipients of your data are located outside the European Union, in the United States as well as in the United Kingdom.

The following guarantee has been made to ensure an adequate level of protection of your information since the European Commission declared, by decision of 10 July 2023, that the United States offered a level of protection of personal data equivalent to the European Union and therefore adequate for any commercial activity. This was also the case for the United Kingdom pursuant to a decision of 28 June 2021. If this situation were to change, HOTEL LUTETIA would ensure that the transfer is regulated, in accordance with GDPR requirements (standard protection clauses adopted by the European Commission or the CNIL, binding corporate rules approved by the CNIL, code of conduct approved by the CNIL or certification issued by an accredited certification body).

Excluding the cases set out above, we undertake not to sell, lease, assign or allow third parties to access your data without your prior consent, unless forced to do so for a legitimate reason (legal obligation, fight against fraud or abuse, exercise of rights of defence, etc.).

CLAUSE 6: Protection of your personal data

All your personal data is treated as strictly confidential.

We follow appropriate security procedures in the retention and disclosure of your personal data in order to prevent unauthorised access and use by third parties and to prevent accidental loss of your data. The persons who access your data are subject to a confidentiality obligation towards Hotel Lutetia.

We also have procedures in place to address any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any relevant supervisory authority of any suspected data security breach where we are required to do so by law.

We impose strict requirements on the recipients to whom we transmit your personal data to ensure that they respect the confidentiality of your data. However, it is important to note that the transmission of information via the Internet is not entirely secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the complete security of personal data that you transmit to us via the Internet.

You acknowledge and agree that such transmission is at your own risk. We shall not be liable for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of your data, except to the extent that we are liable by law or a breach of your personal data is related to the negligence or fault of HOTEL LUTETIA.

  • right of access: right to receive a copy of your personal data;
  • right to erasure: right to request the erasure of your personal data;

To exercise your rights, please read Clause 9 below.

If you choose to exercise any of the rights set out above, you will need to inform us of the right you wish to exercise and provide us with certain information (such as a copy of your identity card, passport, or any other document legally recognised as an identity document) for identification purposes. This is essential to process your request and to protect us from any fraudulent requests from third parties.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority in the event of an alleged breach of the applicable data protection rules. The French supervisory authority is the French Data Protection Authority (Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés – CNIL).

CLAUSE 8: Updates to the Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy reflects our current practices and may be amended and updated from time to time. When changes are made, the “Date updated” at the bottom of the Privacy Policy is amended to indicate the effective date of such changes. We advise you to regularly consult our Privacy Policy.

To improve your experience on our Website, some of our pages on the Website may use “cookies”.

Cookies are managed by your web browser. This identifier may allow the Website to recognise your computer, browser, mobile or tablet each time you visit.

Article 82 of the French Data Protection Act transposes Article 5.3 of Directive 2002/58/EC “privacy and electronic communications” (or “ePrivacy”) into French law. In particular, it provides for an obligation, subject to exceptions, to obtain the consent of Internet users prior to any operation to write or read cookies and other trackers.

10.1. Definition of a cookie

A cookie is a small file stored by a server in a user’s terminal (computer, telephone, etc.) and associated with a web domain (i.e. in most cases, all the pages of the same website). That file is automatically resent when subsequent contact is made with the same domain.

Cookies have multiple uses, including to record and track data concerning a user’s login and use of the Website.

Some of these uses are strictly necessary for functionalities expressly requested by the user or for the establishment of communication and are therefore exempt from consent. Others, which do not meet these criteria, require user consent prior to reading or writing (see 11.2. User Consent).

10.2. Mandatory user consent

Simply continuing to browse a website cannot be deemed to be a valid expression of a user’s consent to the website’s cookie policy.

Users must consent to the deposit of cookies by a clear affirmative action (such as clicking on “I accept” in a cookie banner). If they fail to do so, no cookies that are not essential for operation of the service may be placed on their device.

You can refuse cookies.

You can withdraw your consent at any time.

You can change your preferences at any time by going to the “Manage your cookie preferences” section.

Some uses are strictly necessary for functionalities expressly requested by the user or for the establishment of communication and are therefore exempt from consent.

10.3. Cookies used

First, the banner on our Website, when you connect to it, allows you to find out specific information about cookies and to select your own cookies by refusing some (with the exception of the necessary cookies below) or by accepting them in whole or in part.

Strictly necessary cookies

Some cookies are necessary for the operation of the website and cannot be disabled in our systems. They improve and personalise the functionalities of the website. They are usually set up as a response to actions you have taken that constitute a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling out forms. The information collected via these cookies is anonymous and does not allow us to identify the user. You can configure your browser to block or to be notified of these cookies, but certain areas of the website may be affected.

Cookies exempt from consent include, for example, cookies intended for authentication with a service, those intended to remember the content of a shopping cart on a merchant site, certain cookies intended to generate traffic statistics, or those allowing paid websites to limit free access to a sample of content requested by users.

10.4. Right to object

You have the choice to refuse cookies on our Website, as well as by configuring your browser.

The methods for configuring and removing cookies are different for each browser. These procedures are described in the help menu of your browser. Remember that you should configure each of the browsers on your different terminals (tablets, smartphones, computers, etc.). The ways of configuring cookies for the most well-known browsers are below:

  • For Internet Explorer™: here.
  • For Safari™: here.
  • For Firefox™: here.
  • For Chrome™: here.

Depending on your settings, your browsing will be modified and access to our services will be more or less restricted. In particular, disabling certain cookies will alter or even make it impossible to visit our Website.

If your device is used by several people or has several web browsers, it is possible that certain cookie choices may not be taken into account permanently, either because you have used another browser or because a third party has changed your browser settings. We are not able to prevent these external elements or to guarantee the permanence of any choices initially expressed.
