We would also like to note the following as regards to the usage of service providers located outside of the European Union: WakeSys Booking System is a service that is offered internationally. Thus, it extends not only beyond the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, but also beyond the European Union. We operate worldwide and our users are scattered across this planet. We would prefer to use European service providers for particular services and service offerings, where such providers can deliver the required services at a comparable and competitive price and service level. However, we also wish to be completely transparent. For many of the services that we use there is simply no comparable, acceptable alternative. As a result we therefore employ the use of a range of service providers outside the European Union, in particular from the USA. We take steps to ensure that measures according to the European Data Protection law are taken and applied so as to guarantee an adequate level of data protection.

Minors and Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. We are aware that children use our customer’s service and with that also their data is collected in WakeSys. However, autonomous sign up in WakeSys of underaged children is only allowed starting at the age of 16. Prior to that, the parent or legal guardian is in charge of registering the child and confirming consent with their signature in the name of the child. If we learn that personal data has been collected from persons under 16 years of age and without verifiable parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information or contact the parent to register the child as a relation to their own account. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under 16 years of age has obtained an account within WakeSys without your consent, then you may alert us at email@example.com and request that we delete that child’s personal data from our systems.
Information on the usage of your WakeSys Booking System
When you log into your WakeSys Booking System, the WakeSys server automatically collects data on how you use WakeSys in what is known as an activity log.

Logging into your account allows you to view your full transaction history at any time.
Your transaction history and activity log can be used for statistical and financial analysis, both on an individual as well as aggregated level, by the business owner.
