HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We use the Booking Information that we collect generally to fulfil any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, and sending booking confirmations). Additionally, we use this Booking Information to:
- Communicate with you;
- Screen our bookings for potential risk or fraud; and
- When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
When you provide us with personal information to complete a booking or verify your credit card we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
