- PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND HOW WE USE IT
2.1 We collect personal information about you when you voluntarily submit information directly to us, our site or our app. This can include information you provide to us when you apply to become a member, complete a form, purchase any breaks using our platform, correspond with us, subscribe to our mailing lists, newsletters or other forms of marketing communications, respond to a survey, enter a promotion or use some other feature of our website or app.
2.2 We also collect personal information from you indirectly such as information about the pages you look at on our site or our app or the device you use to view our site or connect to our app with.
2.3 The list below sets out the categories of personal information we collect about you and how we use that information.
Contact details: We collect contact information such as your name, your email address, your telephone number and physical addresses associated with your account or any bookings your place using our service. We will use your contact details so that we can communicate with you directly about the services we provide and about queries, issues or concerns you or other users have.
Booking Information: When you book a break through our platform, or are a member of a group booking made through our platform we may need to collect additional information required to process your booking including passport numbers, information about any disability you have, dietary requirements and/or religious beliefs. We collect this information solely to allow us to process your booking and pass it on to the relevant third parties (such as airlines, hotels and appropriate public authorities) as necessary to complete your travel arrangements.
Comments and opinions: When you contact us directly, e.g. by email, phone, post or by completing an online form we will record your comments and opinions. We will also record comments and opinions you express when responding to surveys, entering competitions or taking part in promotions we run. We will use your comments and opinions to address your queries, issues and concerns and improve our service. We will also use comments and opinions you express (when responding to surveys, entering competitions or taking part in other promotions) to determine offers that may be of interest to you and to send you marketing communications in accordance with your marketing preferences.
Payment and transaction information: We keep records of the breaks you purchase from us and the payment method you use for the transaction. We will use payment and transaction information to process payment for any break you purchase from us. Although we keep records of any transactions you make through the site or app, we do not store any financial details such as your credit card numbers as we use a third party payment provider to process any payments you make through the site. We will also use your transaction information and history to determine travel offers that may be of interest to you and send you marketing in accordance with your marketing preferences.
Website and app login details: Where you create an account with us we will hold your user name and password details so that we can keep your account secure. Where you are provided with the option to log-in using a social network, for example using Facebook, we will not be provided with your password or other account login details for those accounts. We will only be provided with your email and name. We will not post to your social network or to your friends, followers or contacts without your consent. Your preferences: We hold information about the preferences you set for notifications, marketing communications and how our site and app are displayed to you. We will use your preference settings for the purpose of providing notifications, sending marketing communications and displaying our site in accordance with your choices.

We also collect information about the computer, tablet, smartphone or other electronic device you use to connect to our site or our app. This information can include details about the type of device, unique device identifying numbers, operating systems, browsers and applications connected to our site or our app through the device, your Internet service provider or mobile network, your IP address and your device’s telephone number (if it has one).
Typically, the information we collect about how you use or connect to our site is associated with your device and not you as a named individual. However, if you are logged into a registered account you have with us this information may also be associated with you directly.
We use information about how you use and connect to our site and our app to present our site or our app to you on your device and to determine offers that may be of interest to you for marketing purposes.
Information about your location: Other than information you choose to provide to us, we do not collect information about your precise location. Your device’s IP address may help us determine an approximate location. We may use an approximate location to ensure content on our site is relevant to the area, city, state or country you are using your device in. We will not collect or track your exact location without your consent. Where necessary we will seek your consent before using information about your exact location.
Information provided by other users: Sometimes, other visitors to our site or users of our app provide information that is associated with you. We will use personal information about you that is contained in private messages sent to us by other users to fulfil and deliver booking receipts and to respond to any query, issue or concern they raise. Where users of our site or our app want to invite you to use our site, our app or to share information with you about our service or offers we will use personal information that they provide about you to assist them in doing this. We will only do this though where they indicate that you have provided your consent for them to communicate with you in this way.
Information about fraudulent or criminal activity relating to your account: We will use information about fraudulent or criminal activity relating to your use of our site or our app for the purposes of detecting and preventing fraud or crime.
All personal information: We will use all the personal information we collect to monitor and improve our site, our app and our procedures and processes. We also use the personal information we collect to help us develop new products and services. Our use of your personal information in this way will not result in information that was not previously publicly available being made public on our site or through our app.
2.4 At various places on our site or our app you may be requested to enter certain personal information. Personal information that must be provided in order to avail of the booking services offered will be indicated at the time of collection. Other personal information that you are not required to provide in order to receive our services may be voluntarily given and you are free to decide not to give such personal information.
2.5 We may anonymise and aggregate any of the information we collect (so that it does not directly identify you). We may use anonymised information for purposes that include testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our site and developing new products and features.
