Your information and third party companies
The information provided by customers during the ordering process such as their name, physical address, email address, and payment information is considered private, and International Travel Ltd. will not sell, rent or lease this personal information to third parties.
International Travel Ltd. will not share your personal information with others except in connection with the provision of our services to you.
International Travel Ltd. contracts with third-party service providers in connection with the performance of our services. When we share personal data with other organisations we require them to keep it safe, and they must not use your personal data for their own marketing purposes.
We only share the minimum personal data that enable our suppliers and retail partners to provide their services to you and us. For example, International Travel Ltd. uses certain banking institutions to process commission payments. Such third-party service providers are generally required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of International Travel Ltd. and may not use any such personal information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for International Travel Ltd. These service providers may change or we may contract with additional service providers to better serve our customers.
International Travel Ltd. may share your personal information across its various business entities and service lines, all of which are generally subject to the requirements of this Privacy Statement. International Travel Ltd. may also combine with or be acquired by another business entity, in which case your information may be shared with such entity.
International Travel Ltd. will not otherwise share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless we assess such disclosure to be required by law. So that you can travel, it may be mandatory (as required by government authorities at the point(s) of departure and/or destination) to disclose and process your personal data for immigration, border control, security and anti-terrorism purposes, or any other purposes which they determine appropriate. Some countries will only permit travel if you provide your advance passenger data. These requirements may differ depending on your destination and you are advised to check. Even if not mandatory, we may assist where appropriate. We may share the minimum personal data necessary with other public authorities if the law says we must, or we are legally allowed to do so.
