We apply this Policy when you visit the Glotera website, make your own booking in the reservation system, fill in an enquiry form, or subscribe to newsletters. This Policy is also intended to inform you about other personal data processing operations carried out by Glotera and the main provisions designed to ensure your privacy.

When processing personal data, we comply with the requirements of the European Union Data Protection Regulation 2016/679, the Republic of Lithuania Law on Legal Protection of Personal Data, the Republic of Lithuania Law on Electronic Communications, and other related legal acts, as well as with the instructions of the controlling authorities.

In order to ensure transparency and responsible processing of personal data, we inform you that Glotera processes personal data for the following purposes:

  • Provision of services, consulting and communicating with clients;
  • carrying out direct marketing, including sending newsletters;
  • other purposes related to internal administration, such as the processing of data of Glotera employees.

What personal data is collected and processed?

Glotera collects and processes the following categories of personal data:

  • basic data that are necessary for the purposes listed above: name, surname, personal identification number and date of birth, contact details, etc.;

  • data relating to the use of the services, such as volumes of use of the service, etc.;
  • other data which are collected on the basis of your consent and which are defined in detail at the time consent is requested from you.

On what legal grounds can your personal data be collected?

Glotera may only collect your personal data on the basis of the lawful grounds for processing specified in the legislation. This is the legal basis for the initiation into and performance of a contract where you enter into a service or other contract with Glotera. Glotera’s legitimate interests may also be the basis for processing of personal data, for example when Glotera sends out newsletters and information about its services. Your consent is another basis on which Glotera may collect and process personal data (for example for direct marketing, personalised offers based on individual client analysis or otherwise). Glotera may also process your personal data in order to comply with legal obligations (to comply with regulatory requirements, to respond to lawful requests from national authorities or municipalities, etc.), or on other lawful processing grounds.

How long is your data stored?

Glotera shall not store your personal data for longer than the purposes of processing or the legislation requires, provided that the legislation provides for longer storage. Personal data is generally retained for as long as the contractual relationship may give rise to legitimate claims or as long as necessary for the exercise and protection of Glotera’s legitimate interests. Personal data that are no longer required shall be destroyed.

When processing personal data, Glotera may assign you to a certain CLIENT category, but only insofar as it is related to the offer, in order to enable Glotera to provide individual offers, to tailor the content to the user’s interests, and to inform them about the services.

Glotera takes all possible measures to ensure that personal data is processed accurately, fairly and lawfully, and that it is processed only for the purposes set out in the law, in strict compliance with the clear and transparent requirements for the processing of personal data set out in the law.

To whom does Glotera provide or may provide personal data?

  • To other persons only in the cases and according to the procedures set out in the applicable legislation. Personal data is only transferred within the Republic of Lithuania and/or to other European Union countries.
  • To companies handling joint debtor files or administering debts.
  • To a court of law or other public authorities including law enforcement agencies, to the extent that such provision of information is required by law.
  • To other persons with your consent, provided that such consent is obtained on a case-by-case basis.
