This Disclosure has the purpose of communicating to the user the personal data processing methods concerning them.


The website offers informative and sometimes interactive content. When browsing the website www.hostelsalessandro.com, it may, therefore, gather information on the visitor in the following ways:

  1. Browsing Data

During their normal operation, computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire some data, the transmission of which is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. It is information that CANNOT be associated to identified data subjects or include personal data. This category of data only includes IP addresses, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (successful, failed, etc.) and other parameters associated with the user’s operating system and computer environment. This data is only used to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to ensure that it operates correctly and it is cancelled immediately after processing; the way things stand, the data on the web contacts does not persist for more than seven days.

Data provided voluntarily by the User

The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses indicated on this website involves the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, as well as any other personal data included in it, which are needed to respond to the requests. The personal information regarding those visiting the Website is not collected or used.

The visitors remain anonymous. The only exception concerns the information for personal identification necessary for executing the booking service and for subsequently providing the hotel accommodation services requested by the user/data subject.

The personal information regarding those visiting the Website is not collected or used. However, in the event of booking through the website, the user is obliged to provide name, billing address, email and telephone number.

The information provided will not be used for commercial purposes and will not be sold, transmitted, licensed or forwarded to third parties in another manner. The information on the payment methods and the data related to the credit card are managed by Cattaneo s.r.l. only for the time necessary for checking the payment; this information will be cancelled on the successful outcome of the transaction and anyway kept for no longer than 30 days from when the Customer ends their stay. The sole subject that can process the booking data is our on-line booking services provider hostelworld l.t.d. (to which the Customer provides the data freely before granting it to Cattaneo s.r.l.), which is responsible for processing the bookings online together with the credit card issuing companies, who can be contacted to verify their validity. In any case, the payment website administrator is solely responsible for this data and has ensured Cattaneo s.r.l. in writing that it adopts scrupulous procedures to protect browsing data and uses particular care for storing the data regarding the credit card provided when booking online, as well as aligning with the provisions of the GDPR.


Besides what has been specified above in relation to browsing data, the user is free to provide the requested personal data by means of the data collection Form or through the “contacts” section of the online Booking Office to obtain explanatory information or other communications or information. Failure to provide such data may, however, make it impossible to obtain what is requested. Sending the data requires acquisition of the sender’s email address and all the other personal details included, necessary for replying to the requests.


The personal data is processed with electronic instruments for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected. Specific safety measures are respected to prevent the loss of the data, unlawful or incorrect use and unauthorised access.
