2. The lawful bases for processing

As set out in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) there are certain lawful bases for processing information. At least one of these must apply whenever we process your personal data:

  • Consent: You have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose (e.g. ticking a box to receive newsletters).

  • Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations).
  • Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests (this means a reasonable expectation of running our business) unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data, which overrides those legitimate interests. (e.g. we may use your past booking information to send personalised offers to you. We may use your address details to send you direct marketing information by post, to inform you about products or services that might be of interest to you.)

You have the right to object to our using your information for our legitimate interests. However, please keep in mind that your objection to this sort of processing may affect our ability to carry out the services you have requested for your trip.

3. Why and how we use personal information

In order for us to deliver the best possible customer experience we may combine the data we collect and then use this to offer promotions on our products or services most likely to be of interest to you. The GDPR allows this (under our legitimate interest) to understand our customers and provide the best possible customer service.
