Data processes:

We may collect and process your personal data for the purposes set out below and disclose your personal data to VILAND TRAVEL companies or subcontractors for business purposes and also to our service providers who act as ‘controllers’ or ‘processors’ on our behalf. These purposes include:

  • Fulfilling the contract with you and legal obligations (Articles 6(1)(b) and (c) of the GDPR: In order for you to travel abroad, it may be mandatory as required by government authorities at the point of departure and/or destination to disclose and process your personal data for immigration, border control and/or any other purposes. Also, we need to provide airlines/accommodation providers with your name, passport number, contact details, and other related information in accordance with their terms and conditions. If you do not provide us with this personal data, we might not be able to offer our services to you.
  • Fulfilling your and our legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR): Where it is in both your and our benefit that we further process your personal data as part of our business administration, maintaining service quality, customer care, business management, risk assessment/management, security, and operation purposes.
  • Consent: For marketing purposes and other similar data processes that may require your authorization for their processing (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). We will usually inform you before collecting your data if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your personal data to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we used to collect your data.
  • Explicit consent (Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR): Information such as health or religion may be considered ‘sensitive personal data’ under the GDPR. This personal data might include information necessary to arrange bookings and travel plans, including your allergies, disabilities, and other relevant health information.

Children

Our products and services are intended for adult customers. However, we may knowingly collect and process personal data on children under sixteen (16) if they are travelling with adults or as part of a group or for other reasons. On these occasions, we will take account of this event when processing the personal data of children and implementing the legal basis for such processing. For example, where the processing of personal data of children is based on their consent such as the processing of his/her sensitive personal data, we will seek the consent of parents, tutors, or other adults holding parental responsibility over children, if required under the GDPR.
