Because your privacy is important to us, we do not sell, rent or trade your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes without your express consent. We do provide your Personal Information to necessary third-party service providers when you reserve or purchase travel services through France Skiing. We also use your Personal Information to inform you of new features, services and products from France Skiing or associated companies. If at any time you believe that France Skiing has not adhered to these principles, please notify us by e-mail at info@France Skiing.com and we will use all commercially reasonable efforts to determine and correct the problem promptly.
In order to process your booking and to ensure that your travel arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements we need to use the information you provide such as name, address, any special needs/dietary requirements etc.
We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass the information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as your tour operator, airlines, hotels, transport companies etc. The information may also be provided to security or credit checking companies, public authorities such as customs/immigration if required by them, or as required by law.
Additionally, where your holiday is outside the European Economic Area (EEA), controls on data protection in your destination may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. We will not, however, pass any information onto any person not responsible for part of your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary/religious requirements. (If we cannot pass this information to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or not, we cannot provide your booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons.)
Usually your tour operator or other principal will pass this information onto their suppliers once we have provided it to them. The tour operator or other principal’s use of your information is subject to their policy, both in respect of your booking and any future marketing, and is their responsibility. Please ask either us or them for a copy of this if you would like to see it.
Your data controller is: France Skiing
You are entitled to a copy of your information held by us. If you would like to see this please ask us. (We may make a small charge for providing this to you).
