The right of access to your personal information held by Verbier Summits
The right of rectification. We must correct inaccurate or incomplete data within one month.
The right to erasure. You have the right to have your personal data erased and to prevent processing unless we have a legal obligation to process your personal information.
The right to restrict processing. You have the right to suppress processing. We can retain just enough information about you to ensure that the restriction is respected in future.

Any personal information collected by Verbier-Summits will not be published or passed on to third parties without prior consent, unless there is a legal obligation to do so. We have undertaken checks of the privacy policies of organisations that have access to client or visitor personal data (our booking engine, payment system, email provider and Paragliding licence certification authorities) to ensure they are also GDPR compliant.

We will only keep your information for as long as it is required to be retained. The retention period is either dictated by law or by our discretion. Once your information is no longer needed it will be securely and confidentially destroyed.

If you wish to request a copy of your personal information, comment or complain about how your data are stored or processed then please make an enquiry contact:

If you are still dissatisfied with how Verbier-Summits have handled your complaint, you may contact the Information Commissioner’s Office relevant to your country of origin.
