Policy Overview

Loste is a data controller under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Here is our Privacy Policy with regards to that regulation.

We hold personal data, along with business data that can be identified by personal data. We do not hold any sensitive personal data.

We have contractual arrangements with third parties for the processing of our data for our own business purposes.

We do not share any personal data for use by any third parties for their own purposes unrelated to our data processing.

Personal Data Controlled by Loste

Loste personal data is stored in France or other ‘adequate’ countries as defined by the EU Commission.

Here is a list of how we collect data and the processes and flows related to it:

Booking – We collect data that you provide on the Availability Request and Contact forms on our website.

Technical – Passively to us, various technical processes collect IP addresses.

Cookies – The Loste site uses only cookies which are necessary to correct functioning of the website. We do not use tracking cookies to gather data about visitors to the website.

Booking Data

Loste stores the following personal information:

We store the name, address, telephone numbers and email address that you provide us as part of the booking process.

We use the information you provide to communicate with you in conjunction with your booking and tenancy, and to form a contractual arrangement for your booking.

We record the personal data in our internal booking system and retain it for as long as legally required for tax and financial reporting purposes.

Technical Data and Cookies

Our site stores only ‘essential’ cookies, necessary for the correct function of the site. 

In the process of using our website, your IP address is stored by our data processors, i.e. our ISP.

Our ISP collects IP addresses in system logs for the smooth operation of the website and email servers.

We do not collect individual IP addresses for direct targeting of sales, marketing or advertising activities.

We do not do profiling or automatic decision making with your personal data.

When you click on the Facebook icon or other external hyperlinks, your interactions with those external websites regarding personal data are no longer covered under this Loste Privacy Policy.

Accountability and Data Management

We are aware of the GDPR guidelines. We do not have a Data Protection Officer and are not required to under Article 37 of GDPR.

Our technical security is up to date. The Loste website operates under the secure HTTPS protocol. Access to our booking system is protected by passwords and firewall.

We will report a data breach involving personal data to the local authorities and to the people (data subjects) involved.

There are contracts in place with our data processors, and you can find their privacy terms as follows:

Your Rights under GDPR

Booking Data

You can request to view, amend or delete personal information held in our booking and content management system (CMS) systems by emailing us at

You can also request us to deliver your data to a third party. We endeavour to act on your instructions and confirm our actions to you within 48 hours.

Such communication will not give rise to the creation of further personal data.

We automatically delete data held in our booking and CMS systems that our business no longer has any use for. We review the data to identify and remove obsolete data annually.

Technical Data and Cookies

We do not run an eCommerce system where IP addresses are collected and associated with transactions or customers.

IP addresses are not associated in our systems with any personal data from our booking system or CMS. In certain cases, IP addresses are required to be held by our data processors for legal reasons. In those cases, we may not be able to act on a request to view, amend or delete IP address records.

We will inform you if we make a material change to our privacy policy.

We believe that this, our Privacy Policy, is clear and understandable, but please don’t hesitate to comment or request clarification by emailing Such communication will not give rise to the creation of further personal data.
