We may be required to provide additional information depending on the legislation in force in the country in which we operate.
Call tracking: when you contact Viventiumhotels.com Customer Service, we use an automatic telephone number detection system to find the reservation that matches your number. This saves you and our agents time. However, they may ask you to identify yourself so that the details of your booking remain confidential.
We also use personal data for security and risk assessment purposes, such as when you report a security concern or when we need to authenticate users and bookings. We may therefore have to block certain bookings or put them on hold until we have completed our assessment.
The provision of your personal data to Viventiumhotels.com is voluntary. However, certain services may require the collection of certain personal data. For example, we cannot process your Travel Reservation if we do not collect your name and contact details.

When using personal data to serve the legitimate interests of Viventiumhotels.com or a third party, Viventiumhotels.com will always balance your rights and interests regarding the protection of your personal data with the rights and interests of Viventiumhotels.com or the third party.

What are cookies and what do other tracking technologies consist of?
Cookies are small text files stored in the browser of your computer or mobile device.
They record information about the content you consult and interact with, in order to remember your preferences and settings or to analyse how you use the services offered online.
There are 2 types of cookies: “internal cookies” and “third-party cookies”.
Internal cookies are placed by the owner of the domain, in this case Viventiumhotels.com. All the cookies we set ourselves are therefore “internal cookies”.
Third-party cookies are cookies placed on our domains by trusted partners to whom we have given our authorisation. These may be social network partners, advertising partners, security service providers and many more.
These cookies may be “session cookies” or “permanent cookies”.
Session cookies cease to exist when you close your browser, ending your “session”. They are then deleted.
Permanent cookies have a different lifespan and are retained on your device after you close your browser. On the Viventiumhotels.com platform, we ensure that we only set permanent cookies (or authorise the setting of permanent cookies by third parties) with a limited lifetime. However, we may sometimes, for security reasons or if absolutely necessary, extend the lifetime of a cookie.
Web browser cookies can store information (e.g. your IP address or other identifier, your browser and the content you consult and interact with on digital services). By storing this information, web browser cookies can remember your preferences and the settings you have configured for online services, and analyse how you use these services.
In addition to cookies, we also use very similar tracking technologies. For example, our website, emails and applications may contain small invisible graphic files or lines of code that record how you interact with them. These may be web beacons, scripts, tracking URLs or software development kits (SDKs).
Web beacons go by many names. They are also known as web bugs, tracking bugs, tags, web tags, page tags, web beacons, 1×1 GIFs or invisible GIFs.
In short, web beacons are small graphic images of just one pixel that can be placed on your device when a web page is requested, on an application, in an advertisement or in an HTML-formatted e-mail.
They can be used to retrieve information from your device, such as the type of device or operating system, your IP address or the time of your visit. They can also be used to place and read cookies on your browser or to cause a cookie to be placed.
Scripts are small computer programmes that are integrated into our web pages, enabling them to offer many additional functions. Scripts also enable the website to function properly. For example, they power certain security functions and activate basic interactive options on our website.
Scripts may also be used for analytical or advertising purposes. For example, a script may collect data about how you use our website, such as the pages you visit or the information you search for.
Tracking URLs are links with a unique identifier. They are used to find out which website referred you to the Viventiumhotels.com website or application. For example, they make it possible to know if you were redirected to Viventiumhotels.com after clicking on a page of a social network, on a link in a search engine or if you were initially on the site of one of our affiliate partners.
Software Development Kits (SDKs) are part of the source code of our applications. Their data is kept in the application’s storage capacity, unlike your browser’s cookies.
They are used to analyse how applications are used or to send you personalised push notifications. To do this, they record unique identifiers associated with your device, such as your device identifier, your IP address, your activity on the application and your network location.
All these tracking technologies are referred to in this document as “cookies”.
How are cookies used?
Cookies are used to collect information, including the following data:
- IP address

Marketing cookies allow us to determine which products, services and advertisements to offer you on our website or applications, based on your interests.

Display targeted advertisements based on your interests, not only on the Viventiumhotels.com website and applications but also on other websites. This is called “retargeting,” and it is based on the searches you perform on our site, such as destinations searched, accommodations viewed, and rates displayed, as well as your shopping habits and other online activities.

Integrate social networks into our website and applications. This allows you to like or share content or products on social networks (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, Snapchat and LinkedIn).
These “Like” and “Share” buttons use parts of the code from the social networks concerned, and thus authorise the placement of third-party cookies on your device.
These cookies are purely functional but may be used to identify the websites you visit from their network, to create a profile based on your online search behaviour and to offer you personalised advertising. This profile will be created in part with comparable information received by suppliers following your visits to other websites belonging to their network.
To find out more about how the social networks use your personal data, consult their privacy charter and/or their information on cookies: Facebook (including Instagram, Messenger and Audience Network), Snapchat, Pinterest and Twitter. Please remember that these documents may be updated from time to time.
We work with trusted third parties to collect data. We may also share information with these third parties (e.g. your email address or telephone number). These third parties may, in turn, combine your data with other information they have collected in order to provide you with a personalised experience and targeted advertising. To learn more about how these third parties process your data, please visit the following links: How does Google use the information it collects? and Facebook’s data use policy.
We may also use other techniques (e.g. pixels), which we do not consider to be cookies because they do not record any information on your device.
information about your device.
We sometimes place pixels in e-mails (e.g. newsletters). A pixel is an electronic file the size of a single pixel, embedded in an e-mail and downloaded when you open it. By placing pixels in e-mails, we can see whether the message was received, if and when it was read, and which parts of the e-mail you clicked on.
We also receive this information when we send you push notifications. These statistics tell us more about your reading behaviour and enable us to optimise our communications and messages so that they are more relevant to you.
