Changes to the privacy notice and your duty to inform us of changes
We keep our privacy notice under regular review. This version was last updated on 23rd July 2019.
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
Data you provide to us about other individuals
Given the nature of the products and services which we provide, it is likely that you will provide us with personal data relating to other individuals (such as, if you are an individual client, details of your family members or if you are a corporate client, details of employees). Before you provide their personal data to us you must ensure that you have the right to provide that personal data to us and that we may collect, use and disclose that personal data as set out in this privacy notice without us having to take any further steps.
You must ensure that those individuals are made aware of the matters set out in this privacy notice, such as who we are, what we will do with their personal data, who we may disclose their personal data to and their rights in relation to their personal data.
The data we collect about you
Personal data means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
The types of personal data that we collect about you will differ depending on our relationship with you. For example, the types of personal data we collect about individual clients will be different to the types of data we might collect about individuals associated with our corporate clients. In addition these will be different to the types of data we collect about our suppliers (or individuals associated with them), which in turn will be different to data we collect from visitors to our website.
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
- Identity Data includes name(s), marital status, title, date of birth, gender and passport details (which includes copies of passports).
- Contact Data includes address(es), email address(es) and telephone numbers (including mobile, landline and/or office numbers).
- Transaction Data includes details about payments to and from you and other details of products and services you have purchased from us.
- Technical Data includes internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform, and other technology on the devices you use to access this website (including details about CPU (central processing units) and GPU (graphic processing units) used in your device.
- Profile Data includes purchases or orders made by you, your interests, preferences (including likes and dislikes), feedback and survey responses.
- Usage Data includes information about how you use our website, products and services.
- Correspondence Data includes correspondence between you and us including e-mails, letters and notes of telephone conversations or meetings.
We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data could be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
There are certain types of more sensitive personal data, known as Special Categories of Personal Data that we may collect about you. These include details your health, disability or mobility issues and dietary requirements.
There are some other types of Special Categories of Personal Data which we do not collect. These include trade union membership details and genetic and biometric data.
We do not collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.
If you fail to provide personal data
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you (or our client or supplier), and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (or our client or supplier) (for example, to provide you with products or services) or we may not be able to comply with legal obligations which we are subject to. In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
How is your personal data collected?
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:

In addition to having one of the lawful bases highlighted above in place in respect of collecting and using that data, there are extra conditions we must have in place to collect and use Special Categories of Personal Data, given its sensitive nature.
Where we do collect and use Special Categories of Personal Data we rely on one of the following extra conditions to do so:
- We have your explicit consent to processing the Special Categories of Personal Data;
- Where it is necessary to protect your vital interests or those of another person where are not physically or legally able to give your consent.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising.
Promotional offers from us
We may use your Identity, Contact, Transaction, Technical, Usage, Correspondence and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased services from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing. You may also receive marketing communications if you are one of our current or prospective suppliers or business contacts.
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.
You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time using the details set out at the beginning of this privacy notice.
Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, product/service experience or other transactions between us.
Change of purpose
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
Disclosures of your personal data
We may share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table in paragraph 5 above.
- Third parties which need your personal data in relation to the contract which we have entered into with you, for example, hotels, airlines, tour operators and destination management companies. The third parties will depend upon the products or services which we are providing to you.
- Marketing agencies acting as processors who provide marketing services to us.
- Marketing platforms (such as Mailchimp) acting as processors on our behalf.
- Service providers acting as processors who provide IT software and storage.
- Our contractors and sub-contractors acting as processors on our behalf.
- Professional advisers acting as processors or joint controllers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers based in SPAIN who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services.
- Spain authorities acting as processors or joint controllers based in SPAIN who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances.
- Law enforcement agencies, courts, immigration authorities, customs and excise authorities, border control agencies, security agencies, anti-terrorism agencies and other similar authorities/bodies.

If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.
Except for governments and other similar official bodies, we require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
Some of the external third parties listed in paragraph 6 above are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA. Given the nature of the products and services which we provide, it is likely that we will need to transfer your personal data (including sensitive information) outside of the EEA (including to the travel destination) in order to fulfil the contract which we have entered into with you.
Subject to certain exceptions set out below, when we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we will ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring appropriate safeguards are implemented. These may include:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
- Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
We may also transfer personal data about you outside of the EEA where there are no safeguards in place but where the data protection laws allow us to. Those situations include the transfer of personal data outside of the EEA where:
- you have explicitly consented after being informed of the risks of the transfers without appropriate safeguards in place;
- it is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us or for pre-contractual steps taken at your request;
- it is necessary for the performance of a contract made in your interests between us and another person;
- it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or other persons, where you are physically or legally incapable of giving your consent; or
- it is necessary to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
How long will you use my personal data for?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
By law we have to keep basic information about our clients or potential clients (including Contact, Identity, Transaction, Correspondence, Usage and Profile Data) for ten years after they cease being clients.
If you are a supplier we will keep your Contact and Identity Data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose we collected it for.
We will keep Financial Data for up to 1 month from the point of collection.
Technical Data will be kept depending on the type of cookies or other technologies used. For example, for session cookies, Technical Data will only be kept until you close your browser and for other types of cookies, Technical Data will be kept for one year.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data, see paragraph 10 below for further information.
In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Your legal rights
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Please click on the links below to find out more about these rights:
- Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
- Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
- Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
- Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (i) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (ii) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (iii) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (iv) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
- Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us using the details set out at the beginning of this privacy notice.
No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Time limit to respond
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
