Information we may collect
Disclosure of personal information
Appropriate personal data will be passed on to the relevant suppliers of your arrangements and any other third party (including banks and/or credit card issuers) who need to know it so that your holiday can be provided. The information may also be provided to government / public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. Certain information may also be passed on to security or credit checking companies. On occasions, we may use other companies to provide services on our behalf, such as mailing brochures and marketing material. We only provide third parties with the personal data they require in order to deliver their services. Other than in relation to government / public authorities (over whom we have no control), we will take appropriate steps which are intended to ensure that anyone to whom we pass your personal data for any reason agrees to keep it secure, only uses it for the purposes of providing their services and does not collect any unecessary personal data from you in the course performing their services. If we cannot pass personal data to the relevant suppliers or any other third party as applicable, whether in the EEA or not, we will be unable to fulfil your booking. In making an enquiry or booking, you consent to personal data being passed on to the relevant suppliers and other third parties.
Your personal data may be stored, used and otherwise processed within the UK and/or any other country(ies) of the European Economic Area (EEA). EEA countries are all member states of the European Union together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. We may also store, use or otherwise process personal data outside the EEA. Data protection laws may not be as strong outside the EEA as they are in the EEA. Personal data will not be transferred to a country outside the EEA unless (1) the country to which it is transferred is one which the European Commission considers to provide an adequate level of data protection or (2) the personal data is transferred to a United States company which has signed up to the Safe Harbour scheme or (3) the personal data is transferred to a company which is required by our contract with them only to deal with the data in accordance with our instructions and to maintain appropriate security to protect the personal data which we are satisfied they have or (4) we are obliged to provide the personal data to a government / public authority in order to provide your holiday.
Mailing Lists & Marketing
Where concent has been given, via opt-in or affirmative action, we will also store and use your personal data for future marketing purposes (for example, sending you a brochure or other marketing material). All personal data you give us will be kept but we will use only names and contact details for marketing purposes. We would never pass your details to a third party not directly involved in the delivery of a service on our behalf. If you would like to opt-out of being contacted for marketing purposes, you can unsubscribe using the link within our marketing emails or you can email us at [email protected] with the request.
Data Protection & Retention
We take appropriate technical and organisational measures which are intended to prevent unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data.
You are entitled to ask us (by letter or e-mail) what details of yours are being held or processed, for what purpose and to whom they may be or have been disclosed. If you believe that any of your personal data which we are processing is inaccurate or incorrect please contact us immediately at [email protected]. Your personal data will be retained until such time as it is no longer required or deemed necessary.
Should you wish to submit a "request to be forgotten", please email [email protected] where your request will be dealt with. We promise to respond to data requests within 40 days of receiving your written request.
