Summary of how we use your data

Travelling Weasels uses your personal data to manage your relationship with us, allow you to purchase services from us, deal with invoicing and ensure that we can communicate with you efficiently.
Data is shared with third party agents who assist us with the sale and provision of services.
Where we rely on your consent, such as for direct marketing, you can withdraw this consent at any time.
What does this policy cover?

This policy describes how Travelling Weasels will make use of your data to purchase services from our website.

It also describes your data protection rights, including a right to object to some of the processing which Travelling Weasels carries out. More information about your rights, and how to exercise them, is set out in the “What rights do I have?” section.

What information do we collect?

We collect and process personal data about you when you interact with us and our websites, and when you purchase services from us. This includes:

your name
your email address
information related to the browser or device you use to access our website;

We place cookies and use similar technologies in accordance with our Cookies Policy and the information provided to you when those technologies are used
on other occasions where we ask you for consent, we will use the data for the purpose which we explain at that time.

Withdrawing consent or otherwise objecting to direct marketing

Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or by contacting us using the details set out below.

What rights do I have?

You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data; to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal data; and to obtain the personal data you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine readable format, and to ask us to share (port) this data to another controller.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing).

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.

To exercise any of these rights, you can get in touch with us – or our data protection officer – using the details set out below. If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to an EU data protection authority where you live, work or where you believe a breach may have occurred.

How do I get in touch with you?

We hope that we can satisfy queries you may have about the way we process your data. If you have any concerns about how we process your data, or would like to opt out of direct marketing, you can get in touch at travellingweasels [at] hotmail [dot] com.

Which Travelling Weasels entity is my data controller, and which affiliates might my data be shared with?

The data controller for your information is Google.

Where we process personal data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the data until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data so that we can respect your request in future.
