The legal basis for processing personal data is consent. Alicante by Bike commits to obtaining explicit and verifiable consent from the User for processing their personal data for one or more specific purposes.

The User shall have the right to withdraw their consent at any time. Withdrawing consent will be as easy as giving it. As a general rule, withdrawing consent shall not affect the use of the Website.

Likewise, the data may be used for commercial, operational, and statistical purposes, and activities inherent to the corporate purpose of Alicante by Bike, as well as for data extraction, storage, and marketing studies to tailor the Content offered to the User and improve the quality, functioning, and navigation of the Website.

Respecting Articles 8 of the GDPR and 7 of Organic Law 3/2018, of December 5, on the Protection of Personal Data and guarantee of digital rights, only those over 14 years of age can provide legal consent for the processing of their personal data by Alicante by Bike. If the person is under 14 years old, the consent of their parents or legal guardians will be required for the processing, and it will only be considered legal to the extent that they have authorized it.

Confidentiality and Security of Personal Data

Alicante by Bike commits to adopting the necessary technical and organizational measures, appropriate to the security level corresponding to the risk of the collected data, to ensure the security of personal data and prevent their destruction, loss, or alteration, accidental or unlawful access to personal data transmitted, stored, or processed in any other way, or unauthorized communication or access to such data.

However, since Alicante by Bike cannot guarantee the invulnerability of the internet or the complete absence of hackers or other unauthorized parties accessing personal data, the Data Controller commits to notifying the User without undue delay when a breach of the security of personal data occurs that is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals. In accordance with Article 4 of the GDPR, a breach of the security of personal data is understood to be any breach of security that results in the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to personal data transmitted, stored, or processed in another way.

The personal data will be treated as confidential by the Data Controller, who commits to informing and guaranteeing, through legal or contractual obligations, that this confidentiality is respected by its employees, associates, and any person to whom the information is accessible.

Rights Derived from Personal Data Processing

The User has the following rights recognized in the GDPR and Organic Law 3/2018, of December 5, on the Protection of Personal Data and guarantee of digital rights, with regard to Alicante by Bike and may, therefore, exercise them against the Data Controller:

  • Right of access: The User has the right to obtain confirmation from Alicante by Bike whether their personal data is being processed or not and, if so, to obtain specific information about their personal data and the processing Alicante by Bike has carried out or is carrying out, as well as other information available about the origin of such data and the recipients of the communications made or planned for them.
  • Right of rectification: The User has the right to have their inaccurate personal data corrected or, taking into account the purposes of the processing, completed.
  • Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”): The User has the right, where the current legislation does not establish otherwise, to obtain the erasure of their personal data when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed; the User has withdrawn their consent to the processing and there is no other legal basis for the processing; the User objects to the processing and there are no other legitimate grounds for the processing; the personal data has been processed unlawfully; the personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation; or the personal data has been obtained in relation to the offer of information society services to a child under 14 years of age. In addition to erasing the data, the Data Controller, considering the available technology and the cost of implementation, must take reasonable measures to inform the parties processing the personal data of the data subject’s request to erase any links to that personal data.
  • Right to restriction of processing: The User has the right to restrict the processing of their personal data. The User has the right to obtain the restriction of processing where they contest the accuracy of their personal data; the processing is unlawful; the Data Controller no longer needs the personal data, but the User needs it to assert a claim; and when the User has objected to the processing.
  • Right to data portability: Where processing is carried out by automated means, the User shall have the right to receive their personal data from the Data Controller in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another Data Controller. Whenever technically feasible, the Data Controller shall transmit the data directly to the other Controller.
  • Right to object: The User has the right not to have their personal data processed or to cease processing by Alicante by Bike.
  • Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling: The User has the right not to be subject to an individual decision based solely on automated processing of their personal data, including profiling, unless the current legislation establishes otherwise.

Thus, the User may exercise their rights through a written communication addressed to the Data Controller with the reference “GDPR-https://alicantebybike.com/“, specifying:

  • Name, surname of the User and a copy of the ID card. In cases where representation is admitted, the identification of the person represented by the same means as the User, as well as the document accrediting the representation, will also be necessary. The photocopy of the ID card may be substituted for any other valid legal means that prove identity.
  • Request with specific reasons for the request or information to be accessed.
  • Address for notifications.
  • Date and signature of the applicant.
  • Any document substantiating the request made.

Claims to the Supervisory Authority

If the User believes there is a problem or violation of current regulations in the way their personal data is being processed, they will have the right to effective judicial protection and to file a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular, in the State in which they have their habitual residence, place of work, or the alleged infringement.

The use of the Website implies acceptance of its Privacy Policy.

Alicante by Bike reserves the right to modify its Privacy Policy, according to its own criteria, or motivated by legislative, jurisprudential, or doctrinal changes of the Spanish Data Protection Agency. Changes or updates to this Privacy Policy will not be explicitly notified to the User. It is recommended that the User periodically consult this page to stay informed of the latest changes or updates.

This Privacy Policy was updated to comply with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council, dated April 27, 2016, regarding the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data (GDPR), and Organic Law 3/2018, of December 5, on the Protection of Personal Data and guarantee of digital rights.
