How we use your personal data
In order to provide our comparison service(s) to you, it is necessary to collect information about you and your requirements. This is so that we can process your enquiry and any subsequent order and to provide you with the best possible service.

Upon your return, we will send you an e-mail and invite you to review the product(s) and or service(s) booked. We will not e-mail you in the future unless you have given us your consent.
Our comparison web site uses the booking and payment services of a number of carefully selected service providers. These providers operate in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the law.
What personal information do we ask for?
When you have searched for prices and availability and are ready to make your booking, we will ask for your name, your postal address and e-mail address. We'll also need your credit/debit card details including card number, cardholder name, expiry date and the CV2 security number in order for our trusted service providers to take payment and confirm the booking on-line. If you're paying by debit card we may also need to take the start date and issue number of the card.
We'll also ask you for your telephone number so that, if needed, you can be contacted regarding your booking. The information we hold will be accurate and up to date and if you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.
How we protect your information
All the information you give us is protected by a secure server. The secure server software SSL (Secure Socket Layers) encrypts all information you enter before it is sent to our trusted service providers to confirm your booking. You can tell our site is secure as a small locked padlock symbol will appear in the bottom right of your browser to show that you can safely send credit card details through our site. Another indicator is that our secure pages will not display a 'security alert' message. We also have a Firewall (security hardware and software) in place to protect our internal information from the Internet.
We may use technology to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to our site. This can include using a "cookie" which would be temporarily stored on your browser. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to store on a web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. For your complete peace of mind, Travel Arrange only uses temporary cookies which are deleted once you leave our site.
