This privacy policy sets out how Internet Leisure and Corporate Limited (ILC) T/A TravelAgent.ie / Corporate Travel / BookHotels.ie / Cruise World; a company registered in Ireland, registration no. 309534, collects and uses the personal data you provide to us. This Privacy Policy describes what personal data we collect about you, how we collect it, how we use it, with whom we may share it, and what choices you have regarding our use of your personal data. We also describe the measures we take to protect the security of your personal data and how to contact us. You have the right to review our data protection policy prior to providing ILC with any of your personal data.

We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully and in its entirety as it relates to your rights regarding the processing of your personal data. As a user of our Services, you understand and agree that we collect, use, and disclose your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

ILC materially complies with applicable laws in the jurisdictions in which it operates, including the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by May 25, 2018 in its handling of personal data of persons in the European Economic Area. It is in our legitimate business interests to provide you with the Services which use the personal data provided to us for the purposes described herein.

We will be a “data controller” for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) for any personal information you provide to us in connection with our relationship.

We need to collect, use and disclose personal information in order to perform our business functions and activities, including making and managing travel bookings on behalf of our customers. We are firmly committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information and to maintaining various physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect personal information in our care.

By providing personal information to us, you agree that this Notice will apply to how we handle your personal information and you consent to us collecting, using and disclosing your personal information as detailed in this Notice. If you do not agree with any part of this Notice, you must not provide your personal information to us. If you do not provide us with your personal information, or if you withdraw a consent that you have given under this Notice, this may affect our ability to provide services to you or negatively impact the services we can provide to you. For example, most travel bookings must be made under the traveller’s full name and must include contact details and appropriate identification (e.g. passport details). We cannot make bookings for you without that information.
