While information is the cornerstone of our ability to provide a superior travel service, our most important asset is our customers' trust. How do we collect Personal Information?
In general, we collect Personal Information directly from you. However, if you are accessing our products and services as part of a group (for example, a group booking for a cruise or tour), we may collect Personal Information about you from the person who is making the booking on your behalf. If you are accessing our products and services on behalf of a group, you represent to us that every member of that group has consented to you providing us with the Personal Information we require in order to provide those products and services. Use of Personal Information
We use your Personal Information to provide you with our products and services including to notify you about new products, services or promotions from time to time. Will your information be given to anyone else?
As a travel agent, Absolute Luxury Travel offers products and services on behalf of a number of third party providers. Absolute Luxury Travel may be required to disclose your Personal Information to these providers to enable them to provide you with their services and to assist in making your experience a satisfying one. As these providers require this Personal Information when making your booking, if it is not provided we will not be able to finalise your booking. Because many of the travel products and services that we offer to our clients are located in countries outside Australia, at times it may be necessary for us to transfer your Personal Information to countries that do not have a privacy regime that offers the same degree of protection of your Personal Information as the privacy regime in Australia. Absolute Luxury Travel is not responsible for the privacy practices of third parties (whether within or outside Australia) and does not promise that Personal Information that is sent outside will enjoy the same degree of protection as it has in Australia.
Personal Information may also be disclosed to third parties only for the purpose of completing your transaction with us (for example, your credit card provider) and for associated administrative purposes (for example frequent flyer number and expenditure details will be sent to the relevant airline). Internally, any Personal Information collected by Absolute Luxury Travel is only made available to those authorised individuals who need to handle that information for the purposes outlined in this policy. In some circumstances, Personal Information may also be disclosed outside Luxury Travel. For example, we may disclose Personal Information to third parties to whom we contract out specialised functions (such as mailing houses and printing companies). In such cases we require an undertaking from such persons to comply with the National Privacy Principles and not use the Personal Information for any purposes beyond the scope of our contract with them.
Absolute Luxury Travel may also disclose Personal Information where permitted under the National Privacy Principles including when required by law, when reasonably necessary to assist an enforcement body or to lessen or prevent a threat to individual or public health or safety. Links
