Privacy Policy

This policy's objective, along with that of our Terms of Service, is to describe how we gather, utilize, and safeguard your personal data across all of our websites and services. You can find the most recent version of this policy here. We periodically review and modify it to ensure that it complies with the various privacy regulations in force around the world. If there are very significant changes to the policy, we may let users know by posting notices through our applications or through other channels of communication.

We define "personal data" broadly to mean any information that identifies you specifically. Examples of information that fits this criterion include your name, email address, phone number, IP address, and device IDs. Other, less particular information, such as how you use our service or the nation from which you access our systems, may also be stored by us. We will always give links that allow you to review the privacy policies and terms and conditions of the providers with whom we frequently operate (such as travel sites, agents, airlines, etc.) in order to complete your booking.

How and why do we utilize your personal information?

In order to provide services (such as bookings, etc.), comply with legal duties, or for other standard business purposes, we only use information for which consent has been granted. Below, find explanations of each of these situations.

Service Offerings and Bookings

1. Website adaptation for your device (such as a smartphone or tablet)

3. When you choose an offer from a Travel Supplier, we link you to their platform using data from your device ID, IP address, and search history.

6. answering consumer questions via email or other channels of contact, such as customer service;

7. letting you keep any accounts you have with us active;

Legal Obligations and Compliance

Your information might need to be kept on file and used in the future if we need to respond to legal claims or for compliance, regulatory, or auditing reasons. For instance, if a court order or regulatory authority requires it, we may be required to keep information on file. Also, we reserve the right to ask for identification and verification papers from you in order to verify your identity when you exercise any applicable legal rights you may have to view, alter, or delete your personal data.

This includes information like the dates and location you select during a search as well as the fundamentals needed to make a booking with a travel vendor, like names and contact information.

Depending on how you choose to connect with us, there are instances when we get information about you from third parties. For instance, if you access our website through a partner's promotion or if you use our social network login function to sign into your account.

Sharing personal information with third parties that use it strictly as directed by us

With carefully chosen third parties (let's call them "Third Party Processors") who offer us a range of services that support the execution of our services, we share information about our users. These Third-Party Processors include companies that offer technical support services, customer care, and authentication software.

It's possible for Third-Party Processors to handle your information outside of the nation in which you currently reside. When we use a Third-Party Processor, we may transfer personal data from within Europe to a location outside of the European Economic Area. In these cases, we will put in place the necessary safeguards to ensure that the personal data is protected appropriately in that location, frequently by using standard contractual clauses that have been approved by the European Commission along with stringent security measures.

Sharing or enabling the collection of your information by third parties for processing under their control

Personal information you provide during the booking process may be shared with the relevant Travel Supplier or a third party hired to perform services on their behalf in order to process any booking if you are purchasing travel through a Travel Supplier from within our services' booking platform (Instant Book via Faresatoz.com. You will have the chance to check the privacy policy and any terms and conditions of the Travel Supplier before we share your personal data in this manner. The Travel Supplier may also use personal information to spot fraud.

When you explicitly authorise us to do so, for as when we run a competition in cooperation with a partner and you ask us to give your email address to that third party so they can send you promotional emails, we will share personal data with third parties.

Third parties like advertisers, marketing networks, and affiliates (see the How do we advertise? section below) may also get certain information about you using cookies and related technologies. Your IP address and website usage data, such as inquiries or pages visited on Faresatoz.com, may be collected and provided to these third parties so they can show you relevant advertisements throughout the internet. Your name, contact information, or any other information that would allow someone to identify you in the offline world will never be included in the data that is gathered in this way.

Information disclosure for (or other purposes)

In order to enforce our Terms of Service, prevent, detect, or prosecute illegal or suspected illegal activity, including fraud, or to prevent other harm, we may disclose your information. We may also do so in response to legally required requests, legal proceedings against us, or in order to enforce our rights and claims.

How do we safeguard your personal information?

Our top priority is to protect your personal data. Only Faresatoz.com employees who need access to your information to perform their duties and provide our services are granted access. While no website or app can guarantee 100% security, we have put in place organisational security measures to protect your personal information. We follow best practise methods, technical, architectural, and administrative security precautions to make sure your information is protected and used only as you have authorised. All of our cloud-based data storage is set up with robust access controls and on-disc encryption. TLS and HTTPS/SSL encryption are used for all data transmission to provide the highest level of security. With our Third-Party vendors, we also uphold an end-to-end security procedure that entails regular security reviews, documentation, and progress updates.

How is the information you provide used for marketing?

You can notice advertisements when using Faresatoz.com.

If you use our websites or applications, you might encounter advertising. Either we, or third-party advertising solution providers, will supply these. These advertising may occasionally be customised to make them more pertinent to you. In some circumstances, the personalization might incorporate information derived from prior hotel or travel searches. We may display a pertinent advertisement for hotels in that area if, as an example, you recently searched for a flight to Spain. As an alternative, it might be given based on your interests from a third-party ad network that has data on websites you might have visited. An illustration of this may be a third-party network that chose a Skiing destination for Faresatoz.com advertising after learning that you visited a Skiing website. In any scenario, the personalization will never contain your name or any other information that could be used to contact you offline.

You can encounter advertisements while using non- Faresatoz.com platforms.

When using websites other than Faresatoz.com after leaving, you may encounter adverts for our services. This may occur when Faresatoz.com or a Third-Party Ad Solution we partner with buys advertising space from a platform that is not owned by us. Due to the data that Third-Party Ad Solutions have gathered about you, these advertising may be tailored and delivered to you.

How to limit the advertisements you see?

The sections on cookies and tracking codes that follow describe some of the controls you have over the information that advertisers store on your computer. By adjusting these settings, you can influence some of the advertisements that may be displayed. As they no longer have access to the data needed to give you the most relevant advertising, changing these settings typically results in more generic advertising.
