This Privacy Policy describes how your personal data is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from the website aventuroo.com (the „Site“).

What Personal Data We Collect

You are neither obliged to visit this website nor to provide any User information. If you do not provide us with user information, you might not be able to use individual functionalities of this website.

The collection of user information on our Site is always on a voluntary basis. We collect user information from you when you:

Activity Related User Information

When you make a reservation request for an activity, we collect additional user information, including your hotel name for pick-ups and drop-offs and information about relevant certification, training and experience.

We collect this information and use them for purposes such as confirmation of eligibility for your participation of requested activities. This information is transferred to Service Provider, to fulfil your reservation request.

Technical Information

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your IP address, geographical location, preferred language, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, website navigation and time zone. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Technical Information.”

Although we do not normally use technical information to identify individuals, sometimes individuals can be recognized from it, either alone or when combined or linked with user data. In such situations, device information can also be considered to be personal data under applicable law and we will treat the combined user and technical information as personal data.

How and Why We Use Your Personal Data

Business-related data processing

We process your personal data to be able to deliver our services to you and to run, maintain and develop our businesses, including enhancement of our services, research and analysis relating to our services and tracking of the use of our services.

We process your personal data to perform our contractual obligations towards you, and to comply with legal obligations. Furthermore, we use your personal data to allow us to perform the contract with our customers, suppliers or partners.

Marketing Activities

We process your personal data to allow us to conduct information and promotional campaigns (including direct marketing) related to our services (including by phone, mail and email), keeping you informed about our services and special offers that are likely to interest you.

We also use your personal data to conduct market surveys.

You can revoke your consent granted to us in this regard at any time with effect for the future. If you wish to opt-out of receiving these emails from us, please follow the instructions contained in an applicable email you receive from us, which will allow you to opt-out of receiving these types of email communications from us. Also, a message with an opt-out request using our contact form is sufficient.

With whom we share your personal data

We will not disclose personal information we gather from you to third parties unless we are required to share this information to complete your request or for legitimate business purposes.

We may share your information with vendors or third parties who deliver or provide goods and services or otherwise act on behalf of or at the direction of us. These third parties may include, for example, our third-party (technology) providers, suppliers and partners. These third-party service providers will only have access to the information needed to perform these limited functions on our behalf.

Data Sharing With Service Providers

Some of the personal data we collect is shared with our service providers who are directly involved in fulfilling the purchases you have made from us. We only provide our service providers with the necessary information including your User Information and Activity Related User Information, as described before. We recommend that you review the service provider's privacy policy to determine how such service provider may use or disclose your personal data.

Possibility of Business Selling

If we sell or divest our business or any part of it, and your personal data relates to such sold or divested part of our business, or if we merge with another business, we will share your personal data with the new owner of the business or our merger partner, respectively. If we are legally obliged to do so, we will share personal data to protect our customers, the site, as well as our company and our rights and property.

International Transfers

All the data and application servers we use to provide our service are physically placed inside the EU, and consequently, your personal data is stored in an EU country. Whenever is possible/feasible, we select data processors or specific options inside the data processors’ services in such order to keep data inside the EU.

Your personal data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. Whenever we transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area, we will do so in accordance with applicable law and we will ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by implementing appropriate safeguards.

Our preferred data processor is Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), which offers a GDPR-compliant Data Processing Addendum (GDPR DPA) which includes the Standard Contractual Clauses to enable the transfer of data from outside of Europe. The AWS GDPR DPA is incorporated into the AWS Service Terms and applies automatically to all customers globally who require it to comply with the GDPR.

How Long Will We Retain Your Personal Data

We retain your personal data for as long as is required to achieve the purposes and to fulfil the activities as set out in this Privacy Policy, otherwise communicated to the customers or for as long as is permitted by applicable law.

At the moment you withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal data, all your personal data received and stored are erased unless we are required to retain this personal data by law or to comply with our regulatory obligations. In such a case, we will only keep this personal data for as long as necessary. For more information on where and how long your personal data is stored, and for more information on your rights of erasure and portability, please contact us at office@aventuroo.com.

How we protect your personal data

We seek to maintain the integrity and security of your personal data. We have implemented and maintain appropriate physical, administrative, technical, and organizational measures to protect the personal data you provide us against unauthorized or unlawful access, disclosure, and against accidental loss, damage, alteration or destruction.

However, no data transmission over the internet or data storage environment can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot give an absolute assurance that the personal data you provide to us will be secure at all times. We will rely on you telling us if you experience any unusual events that may indicate a breach in your information security. We will then seek to investigate whether this was related to the data transmissions from or to us and let you know what steps can be taken and have been taken to help rectify the problem.

Data Transfer Protection

We use a secure online transmission procedure, the so-called "Secure Socket Layer" (SSL) transmission, to protect the personal data of our users. You can see this from the fact that an "s" (https://) is added to the address component HTTP://, or a green, closed lock icon is displayed. By clicking on the icon, you will receive information about the SSL certificate used. The display of the icon depends on the browser version used by you. The SSL encryption guarantees that your data is transmitted in an encrypted and complete way.

Data Storage Protection

We seek to store your personal data in secure operating environments that are not accessible to the general public, and to have security measures in place at our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal data by our employees or third parties.

Our service and Site are not intended for individuals under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 16. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under 16, we will take the appropriate steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.
