We request information from you during our booking process. Here you need to provide contact information (like name and address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiry date). As a protection against fraudulent bookings, we also record the IP address for online bookings. This information is used for billing purposes and to fulfil holiday bookings. We also use the information to enable us to contact you when required in connection with your bookings. The booking information that you provide to us about you (and your travelling party) may be passed on to the relevant Travel Providers of your travel arrangements or other persons necessary for the provision of your travel arrangements. The information may therefore be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as passport details, religious beliefs, dietary requirements and disabilities. Where your holiday is outside the European Economic Area (EEA), controls on data protection in your destination may not be as strong as the legal requirements in Ireland. If we were not authorised to pass on this information to the relevant Travel Providers, whether in the EEA (European Economic Area) or not we would be unable to arrange your booking. In making this booking you consent to this information being passed onto the relevant parties. The booking information may be passed onto security or credit checking companies, or to our agents for the purpose of Fraud prevention and or debt collection. All information relating to holiday bookings will be retained in file format for a period of 7 years, in line with our legal obligation to retain such information for financial and contractual reasons. Any personal information you provide to us such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address will not be sold, or rented to any entities or individuals outside of Cassidy Travel. We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass the information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as your tour operator, airlines, hotels, transport companies etc. Usually your tour operator or other principal will pass this information onto their suppliers once we have provided it to them. The tour operator or other principal's use of your information is subject to their policy, both in respect of your booking and any future marketing, and is their responsibility. Please ask either us or them for a copy of this if you would like to see it.
We communicate with customers in relation to their current holiday bookings. This communication may be by email, conventional post, telephone, fax or other suitable medium. This communication is essential to the proper service of bookings and orders and must therefore take place regardless of the customers’ consent to other (non-booking-related) communication.
In the event of a change to personally identifiable information (such as postal address), our staff can make such a change on a user's behalf, subject to identity checks.
Except where an actual booking or other business transaction is concerned, we contact you only when consent is given. If you refuse or withdraw your consent, or if you choose not to provide us with any required Personal Information, we will be unable to provide you with your required travel arrangements.
We process and store your personal data for the legal period granted by the European legislator and Irish data protection laws. When this period expires, we routinely block, destroy or erase your data in accordance with legal requirements, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

We take every precaution to protect all information collected. Sensitive information which you submit via the website is both communicated to us and stored in a secure manner.

You can confirm this by looking for the "secure site" indicator on your web browser, which typically appears as a padlock or key. All credit card information and personal information is encrypted as it is passed between your browser and our web site. When you make a booking your initial payment is cleared using the information you provide. Your credit card number is not held in our database. For information held on file, access is restricted to only those staff that require that information to perform a specific job. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
