What Personal Data do We Collect?
Depending on the internet browser that you are using, you will be able to set its options to warn you when a cookie is being accessed, or to prevent cookies from being accepted. If you prevent your browser from accepting a cookie, many features of this site will not work. That is because some of the features that we have built into our site are dependent upon cookies to provide the necessary functionality.
On some pages we have used services provided by other websites, such as advertisements. These websites may also use a cookie, and these cookies will only be accessible by them. One such 3rd-party vendor is Google, who use the DoubleClick DART cookie to store information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and would like to know your options in relation to not having this information used by Google and DoubleClick, Click Here.
You are responsible for maintaining the security and secrecy of your password and account details.
Email is not a secure method of communication, and we advise you not to send any confidential personal information to us by email (unless we have facilitated the use of a secure digital certificate, which will not be the default position).
Communications Forums and Reviews
Information and opinions that you provide to review and rating systems, chat rooms, bulletin boards and other communication forums will be made public! These forums are, by their very nature, public communication areas, and their contents will be freely visible to any visitor to our site. We strongly advise that you do not provide any information on these forums that may be used to contact you.
On occasion we may release personal information in an aggregate form to suppliers or customers. In these cases, your personal information will not be identifiable.

Disclosure for Legal Reasons
Travelaholics will disclose personal information when required to do so by law; or when requested to do so by law enforcement authorities, government authorities, or the courts; or when, in good faith belief, disclosure is necessary or advisable to protect the rights and property of Travelaholics Ltd, to bring action (including legal) against persons who are or may be interfering, intentionally or otherwise, with our rights or property, or to prevent harm being caused to any person, including the data subject.

Additionally, from time-to-time, we may send you a newsletter or other mailing or information in which we think you may be interested. We will only do this if you have agreed that we may send you this information and if you have not opted-out from these mailings (see separate section).

You may login in and change your preferences to stop receiving mailings from us. Also you may click the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the newsletter to avoid any future mailings. However, we will still send you correspondence that is necessary for us to complete an action (such as a booking) that you have requested from us, even if you have opted-out from receiving mailings and newsletters.
