There are some other cases in which we process your data, on a small scale and for a specific purpose, such as through cookies. The legal basis for processing on our behalf is mainly the performance of a contract, but in some cases we rely on our legitimate interest (e.g. safeguarding the security of our information systems) or the existence of a legal obligation (e.g. disclosure of data to competent authorities).

What are your rights?
Under the GDPR, you have the right to:

receive your personal data in a machine-readable format and send it to another controller (“data portability”)
make a request so that decisions based on automated processing, which concern or significantly affect you and are based on your personal data, are made by natural persons and not only by computers. You also have the right in this case to express your views and to challenge the decision.

If you believe we are in breach of data protection legislation, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority.

How long we store your data:
We store your data for as long as necessary based on our relationship (e.g. if you are a member, what kind of profile you have, etc.), your wishes (e.g. if you request deletion), and the existence of any legal obligation (e.g. tax data). To set the storage period, we always keep in mind the principle of limiting the storage period, and in any case ensure that they are kept secure.

With whom we share your data:
With absolutely no one for direct marketing purposes. We use third party services (processors) for very specific and absolutely necessary services, such as or web analytics. We have selected for these services large organizations that provide security guarantees and have contracted with them to provide secure services. In some cases we may be obliged to share data with judicial or police authorities, under strict terms and conditions.

Who we are (Data Controller):
Autoplan is a website addressed to anyone wishing to rent a passenger vehicle from the fleet of the company, which is created, maintained and owned by the general partnership “GEORGIOS LIONIS AND SIA S.A.” (hereafter referred to as “We” or “Company”). We consider the management of your personal data a very serious matter and therefore we make every effort to fully comply with all the rules for their processing, as they result from Greek and European law (you can find the relevant legal framework at the end of the text). We collect certain information about visitors and registered users of Autoplan, which may lead to their direct or indirect identification. Under the applicable legal framework, this information constitutes personal data, you, as visitors or registered users, are the “data subjects” and we, as the Company, are the “data controller” of your data. The purpose of our policy is to explain the following in as simple, understandable and concise a manner as possible:
– What data we process, for what purpose and on what legal basis; How long we store your data for,
– Who are the recipients of your data,
– What are your rights and how you can exercise them?
– What legitimate interests we pursue,
– What applies to your consent when it is necessary,
– What applies to personal data collected through cookies.
Before we begin, however, we would like to introduce you to the basic principles for processing your data:
Autoplan 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 (GDPR) and Law 3471/2006. What this means in practice:
– We collect and process your data only for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes,
– We only collect and process data that is necessary for the purposes we set out,
– We make every effort to ensure that your data is accurate, giving you the opportunity to correct/erase it where appropriate,
– We keep your data for the period of time necessary for the purposes we set,
– We make every effort to safeguard the security of your data against unauthorised or unlawful processing and accidental loss, destruction or damage. As part of the protection of the data we process, we implement a range of appropriate technical and organisational measures, adopt internal security policies, provide appropriate training for its staff, who are committed to confidentiality and privacy, and use a range of technologies to ensure the security of your data (e.g. SSL certificate, encryption, certified hosting providers). As required by information security and data protection principles, technical and organisational security measures are regularly monitored and, if necessary, updated and adapted to new best practices.

What data we process about you and for what purpose:
As a general rule, we collect and process data of Autoplan visitors/users only when they provide it directly and voluntarily, so simply visiting the website does not necessarily mean that we process your data. However, this rule may not apply absolutely in two cases: data collected with the help of cookies and certain data collected automatically during your visit.

Data that we collect automatically:
Due to the nature and mode of operation of the internet, as soon as you visit our website, our server (intermediary) records your IP address, which constitutes personal data, even if we as a website cannot identify you ourselves on the basis of this data. The reasons (legal basis and purpose) why we collect your IP address, together with the date and time of connection and keep it 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 against accidental events or illegal or malicious actions that compromise the availability, authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of the stored or transmitted data (e.g. to control “denial of service” attacks), but also to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. In the context of ensuring information security and after weighing it against the rights of users, at Autoplan we use the services of reCAPTCHA, to which Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply. On the other hand, we have a legal obligation to maintain this information, as protecting your data from malicious users is both a priority and a duty. In addition, we may, under the applicable framework, be requested to provide information by police or judicial authorities, which we should be able to provide, always under strict terms and conditions.

Autoplan contact form:
Data we process:
We provide Autoplan visitors with the opportunity to contact us via a contact form. The data necessary for contacting us are: Name and email
Purpose of processing – Legal basis:
We process the data on the basis of 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 consent prior to its withdrawal. Sending a single email or submitting a contact form does not make you a member of Autoplan, therefore it is not in itself a sufficient reason for us to include you in our database nor do we retain your data for marketing purposes. Attention. Therefore you should not include sensitive information about you or third parties in your messages.

Information about the management of newsletters:
Autoplan periodically sends out newsletters to its users who have subscribed to the list of update recipients. In each newsletter you receive you have the possibility to unsubscribe, with a link at the end of the email. The legal basis for the processing of your email address is your consent, which you can freely revoke using the relevant link at the end of the email. Autoplan reserves the right to remove any recipient from the newsletter lists without justification. The Autoplan administrators make every effort to ensure the proper functioning of the newsletters, but it is always possible that technical or organisational problems may occur. Autoplan uses the Mailchimp service to send the newsletters. Through this service and with the use of appropriate technologies, we collect statistics on the opening of newsletters and the clicks on them, with the aim of improving our related services. For any issue that arises and 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 on the Company’s system, which is hosted on a server that uses resources from Hostinger’s data center infrastructure in the Netherlands. The server is managed by appropriate methods, exclusively by strictly limited staff of the Company itself, without the intervention of third parties. As a general principle, we keep your data exclusively for the period of time necessary for the respective processing purpose. There are clearly certain retention periods for each category of data. If you send a message via the contact form to Autoplan, the message and your data will be deleted within 3 months from the date of sending the last message we receive from you. The rules for determining the retention period are derived from data protection rules, best practice in the industry and to safeguard 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. Please note that even if you submit a request for the deletion of your data, it is possible that we may retain some of it, solely due to legal obligations or for the establishment, exercise and support of legal claims.
