We may process, use or share information we have collected about you in certain situations as explained above.
Where possible we will explicitly seek your consent to use your information for any purpose other than what it was collected for. By becoming a customer, we may also rely on another legal basis to process your personal information, such as having a Legitimate Interest. Before we do this, we will carry out a suitable test to ensure it is the appropriate lawful basis for processing your personal information, and it does not infringe your rights and freedoms. We will inform you if we intend to process your information in this way, and provide a simple method for you to opt-out of the communication if you wish to do so.
We may disclose only relevant information about you to uphold our contractual obligations to you as a customer in fulfilling your travel arrangements. This may include disclosing relevant personal information with third party businesses and organisations, including airlines, tour operators, travel ancillary providers, banking organisations, and public authorities such as customs/immigration. This may include transferring your data outside of the European Union.
If we believe the release of information about you or your business is necessary to respond to legal process, to investigate or remedy potential violations of our policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of others, we may share your information as permitted or required by any applicable law, rule or regulation. This includes exchanging information with other entities or fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
If you telephone us, calls may be recorded for training and quality purposes. We will only share your personal information with our authorised travel service providers, and only as necessary to complete a transaction that you have specifically requested.
