Privacy Policy

First of all, thank you for visiting us! We are committed to providing the most responsive and helpful assistance in our industry and try very hard to assure that our clients are satisfied. We are very aware that you care about how your personal information is used, and we appreciate your trust that we will use it carefully and sensibly. Our policies and practices regarding online privacy are explained in this document.

Information we gather about you:

  1. Information you give us
    All information you provide to us online comes to us in the form of an email communication. In addition to the email link provided on most pages, this also includes our Availability Request from all of our vacation rentals. If you choose to fill out the Availability Request, you are asked to provide your name and email address. We use this information to determine whether and how we can assist you with a private home rental in Italy. We do not require you to register with our site.
    Without exception, our use of your information is limited to the purpose for which it was provided. When you give us your name, address, telephone number and email address, we use it only to provide you vacation rental services or respond directly to an inquiry you have made. We do not share this information with our partners or affiliates, and we do not sell or otherwise share this information with any other outside parties without your consent.
  2. Email communication
    All email communication between us is carried out solely for the purpose for which it was initiated - your visit to Italy and matters related to this. As stated above, will not share this information with third parties without your consent.

Our relationship with affiliates:

    We currently have affiliate relationships with the following companies in order to provide additional services related to your Italy visit:

  2. Your interaction with our affiliates
    When you use one of our affiliate services, please be aware that you become the affiliate's client and that their privacy policy will apply. When you purchase from them, you are entering into a transaction that is outside of the control of Hidden Italy, and that payment, fulfillment and customer service duties will be performed by the affiliate.
