We collect relevant personal information when you ask us to provide you with information or travel related services (such as air, ground and sea transportation, hotel and other accommodation, tours, meals, services and insurance products) that are sold or reserved through us. We use and disclose the personal information in order to provide you with the requested information or travel services and for purposes ancillary and additional to that. In particular your personal information may be used –
● to furnish you, now and in the future, with travel related information by way of personalized communication, regular newsletters or travel alerts;
● to identify you and your preferences;
● to research and suggest travel services to meet your communicated needs;
● to make airline, hotel, car, tour and other reservations on your behalf;

● to comply with the law;
● for purposes ancillary to the above.
Further, we act as the agent or intermediary for or in respect of the suppliers of the travel services. Accordingly, personal information relevant to the sole purpose of providing your travel services will be disclosed to the suppliers of such travel services.
When you share with us the personal information of your travel companions or other persons for whom you are requesting information or travel services:
● you warrant to us that you are authorized to give that consent on their behalf and indemnify and hold us harmless against any claim by such persons in which they allege that you were not so authorized.
You can visit our website, read materials, and browse the website’s contents without giving us any personally identifiable information.
How We Collect Information
The following are the sources that we may use for gathering personal information. We may gather information –
● from you when you request information or travel services;
● from your agent, family member, employer, employee or authorized representative when such person is seeking information or travel services on your behalf or otherwise representing you;
● from personal travel profiles you have completed;

When you visit our website, some information such as your IP address, pages you visit, type of platform and the number of clicks are collected for analyzing trends. This allows us to keep track of the number of visitors and to recognize the repeat visitors from the new ones.
Prices are accurate at time of quote and are subject to change until trip is paid in full.
QUOTED RATES DO NOT INCLUDE: Airline baggage charges, seat assignment fees or other ancillary fees, passport and visa fees, some departure taxes, gratuities, meals, beverages, resort fees, hotel energy surcharges, parking and valet fees, insurance, telephone calls, additional bedding charges, laundry service, and other miscellaneous charges of a personal nature are not included in our quoted fees, except where specifically noted.
Cancellations and Reservations Changes
Any changes made to your existing reservation (including cancellation) are subject to the current rates, promotions and terms at the time of the change or cancellation. Cancellation, revision and refund polices for changes or unused travel/components vary and are subject to the policies of each supplier. Cancellation penalties can range up to 100% depending on how close to departure the written notification is received.
If the number of individual occupying a room changes, the remaining travelers will be responsible for any additional costs incurred as a result of the change in the per-person occupancy rate.
Air, insurance premium and no-shows are always non-refundable. TravelBash reserves the right to charge a $50 per person administrative fee payable before cancellation will be processed.
TravelBash strongly recommends the purchase of Travel Protection Insurance. Travel Insurance can help minimize the monetary loss incurred due to unforeseen events such as: cancellation, missed connections, baggage loss, trip delay, and especially medical emergencies.
Travelers who opt out of insurance coverage will be asked to sign a waiver indicating that they decline coverage. This waiver must be received by TravelBash before the reservation can be completed.
Flight details including departure times are always subject to change by the airlines.
It is the travelers responsibility to check in for the flight 24 hours in advance and reconfirm all gates and times.
Federal law forbids the carriage of certain hazardous materials, such as aerosols, fireworks, and flammable liquids, aboard the aircraft. If you do not understand these restrictions, contact your airline or go to http://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/hazmat_safety.

For example, depending on how you use the Services, we may process Your Controlled Data in order to: (a) enable you to integrate content or features from a social media platform on Your Site; or (b) email your End Users on your behalf.
4.4 Compliance with Laws. You will ensure that your instructions comply with all laws, regulations and rules applicable in relation to Your Controlled Data and that Your Controlled Data is collected lawfully by you or on your behalf and provided to us by you in accordance with such laws, rules and regulations. You will also ensure that the processing of Your Controlled Data in accordance with your instructions will not cause or result in us or you breaching any laws, rules or regulations (including EU Data Protection Law). You are responsible for reviewing the information available from us relating to data security pursuant to the Agreement and making an independent determination as to whether the Services meet your requirements and legal obligations as well as your obligations under this Data Processing Addendum. Squarespace will not access or use Your Controlled Data except as provided in the Agreement, as necessary to maintain or provide the Services or as necessary to comply with the law or binding order of a governmental, law enforcement or regulatory body.
5. Our Processing Responsibilities.
5.1 How We Process. We will process Your Controlled Data for the Purpose and in accordance with the Agreement or instructions you give us through your Account. You agree that the Agreement and the instructions given through your Account are your complete and final documented instructions to us in relation to your Controlled Data. Additional instructions outside the scope of this Data Processing Addendum require prior written agreement between you and us, including agreement on any additional fees payable by you to us for carrying out such instructions. We will promptly inform you if, in our opinion, your instructions infringe applicable EU Data Protection Law, or if we are unable to comply with your instructions. We will notify you when applicable laws prevent us from complying with your instructions, except if such disclosure is prohibited by applicable law on important grounds of public interest, such as a prohibition under law to preserve the confidentiality of a law enforcement investigation or request.
5.2 Notification of Breach. We will provide you notice without undue delay after becoming aware of and confirming the occurrence of a Breach for which notification to you is required under applicable EU Data Protection Laws. We will, to assist you in complying with your notification obligations under Articles 33 and 34 of the GDPR, provide you with such information about the Breach as we are reasonably able to disclose to you, taking into account the nature of the Services, the information available to us and any restrictions on disclosing the information such as for confidentiality. Our obligation to report or respond to a Breach under this Section is not and will not be construed as an acknowledgement by Squarespace of any fault or liability of Squarespace with respect to the Breach. Despite the foregoing, Squarespace’s obligations under this Section do not apply to incidents that are caused by you, any activity on your Account and/or Third-Party Services.
5.3 Notification of Inquiry or Complaint. We will provide you notice, if permitted by applicable law, upon receiving an inquiry or complaint from an End User, or other individual whose personal data is included in your Content, or a binding demand (such as a court order or subpoena) from a government, law enforcement, regulatory or other body in respect of Your Controlled Data that we process on your behalf and instructions.
5.4 Reasonable Assistance with Compliance. We will, to the extent that you cannot reasonably do so through the Services, your Account or otherwise, provide reasonable assistance to you in respect of your fulfillment of your obligation as controller to respond to requests by data subjects under Chapter 3 of the GDPR, taking into account the nature of the Services and information available to us. You will be responsible for our reasonable costs arising from our provision of such assistance.
5.5 Security Measures. We will maintain the Security Measures. We may change these Security Measures but will not do so in a way that adversely affects the security of Your Controlled Data. We will take steps to ensure that any natural person acting under our authority who has access to Your Controlled Data does not process it except on our instructions, unless such person is required to do so under applicable law, and that personnel authorized by us to process Your Controlled Data have committed themselves to relevant confidentiality obligations or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
5.6 Sub-Processors. You agree that we can share Your Controlled Data with Sub-Processors in order to provide you the Services. We will impose contractual obligations on our Sub-Processors, and contractually obligate our Sub-Processors to impose contractual obligations on any further sub-contractors which they engage to process Your Controlled Data, which provide the same level of data protection for Your Controlled Data in all material respects as the contractual obligations imposed in this Data Processing Addendum, to the extent applicable to the nature of the Services provided by such Sub-Processor. A list of our current Sub-Processors is available upon request by sending an email to email@example.com. Provided that your objection is reasonable and related to data protection concerns, you may object to any Sub-Processor by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you object to any Sub-Processor and your objection is reasonable and related to data protection concerns, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to make available to you a means of avoiding the processing of Your Controlled Data by the objected-to Sub-Processor. If we are unable to make available such suggested change within a reasonable period of time, we will notify you and if you still object to our use of such Sub-Processor, you may cancel or terminate your Account or, if possible, the portions of the Services that involve use of such Sub-Processor. Except as set forth in this Section 5.6, if you object to any Sub-Processors, you may not use or access the Services. You consent to our use of Sub-Processors as described in this Section 5.6. Except as set forth in this Section 5.6 or as you may otherwise authorize, we will not permit any Sub-Processor to access Your Controlled Data. Squarespace will remain responsible for its compliance with the obligations of this Data Processing Addendum and for any acts or omissions of any Sub-Processor or their further sub-contractors that process Your Controlled Data and cause Squarespace to breach any of Squarespace’s obligations under this Data Processing Addendum, solely to the extent that Squarespace would be liable under the Agreement if the act or omission was Squarespace’s own.
5.7 Squarespace Audits. Squarespace may (but is not obliged to) use external or internal auditors to verify the adequacy of our Security Measures.
5.8 Customer Audits and Information Requests. You agree to exercise any right you may have to
conduct an audit or inspection by instructing Squarespace to carry out the audit described in Section 5.7.
You agree that you may be required to agree to a non-disclosure agreement with Squarespace before we
share any such report or outcome from such audit with you and that we may redact any such reports as
we consider appropriate. If Squarespace does not follow such instruction or if it is legally mandatory for
you to demonstrate compliance with EU Data Protection Law by means other than reviewing a report
from such an audit, you may only request a change in the following way:
a. First, submit a request for additional information in writing to Squarespace, specifying all details required to enable Squarespace to review this request effectively, including without limitation the information being requested, what form you need to obtain it in and the underlying legal requirement for the request (the “Request”). You agree that the Request will be limited to information regarding our Security Measures.
b. Within a reasonable time after we have received and reviewed the Request, you and we will discuss and work in good faith towards agreeing on a plan to determine the details of how the Request can be addressed. You and we agree to use the least intrusive means for Squarespace to verify Squarespace’s compliance with the Security Measures in order to address the Request, taking into account applicable legal requirements, information available to or that may be provided to you, the urgency of the matter and the need for Squarespace to maintain uninterrupted business operations and the security of its facilities and protect itself and its customers from risk and to prevent disclosure of information that could jeopardize the confidentiality of Squarespace or our users’ information.
You will pay our costs in considering and addressing any Request. Any information and documentation
provided by Squarespace or its auditors pursuant to this Section 5.8 will be provided at your cost. If we
decline to follow any instruction requested by you regarding audits or inspections, you may cancel any affected Paid Services.
5.9 Questions. Upon your reasonable requests to us for information regarding our compliance with the obligations set forth in this Data Processing Addendum, we shall, where such information is not otherwise available to you, provide you with written responses, provided that you agree not to exercise this right more than one (1) time per calendar year (unless it is necessary for you to do so to comply with EU Data Protection Law). The information to be made available by Squarespace under this Section 5.9 is limited to solely that information necessary, taking into account the nature of the Services and the information available to Squarespace, to assist you in complying with your obligations under the GDPR in respect of data protection impact assessments and prior consultation. You agree that you may be required to agree to a non-disclosure agreement with Squarespace before we share any such information with you.
5.10 Requests. You can delete or access a copy of some of Your Controlled Data through your Account. For any of Your Controlled Data which may not be deleted or accessed through your Account, upon your written request, we will, with respect to any of Your Controlled Data in our or our Sub-Processor’s possession that we can associate with a data subject, subject to the limitations described in the Agreement and unless prohibited by applicable law or the order of a governmental, law enforcement or regulatory body: (a) return such data and copies of such data to you provided that you make such request within no more than ninety (90) days after the cancellation of the applicable Paid Services; or (b) delete, and request that our Sub-Processors delete, such data (excluding in the case of (a) or (b) any of such data which is archived on back-up systems, which we shall securely isolate and protect from any further processing, except to the extent required by applicable law). Otherwise, we will delete Your Controlled Data in accordance with our data retention policy. This Section 5.10 does not apply to personal data held by Third Party Services.
6. Data Transfers.
You authorize us to transfer Your Controlled Data away from the country in which such data was originally collected. In particular, you authorize us to transfer Your Controlled Data to the US. We will transfer Your Controlled Data to outside the EEA using the Swiss-U.S. and EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks or another lawful data transfer mechanism that is recognized under EU Data Protection Law as providing an adequate level of protection for such data transfers.
The liability of each party under this Data Processing Addendum is subject to the exclusions and limitations of liability set out in the Agreement. You agree that any regulatory penalties or claims by data subjects or others incurred by Squarespace in relation to Your Controlled Data that arise as a result of, or in connection with, your failure to comply with your obligations under this Data Processing Addendum or EU Data Protection Law shall reduce Squarespace’s maximum aggregate liability to you under the Agreement in the same amount as the fine and/or liability incurred by us as a result.
In the event of a conflict between this Data Processing Addendum and the Terms of Service, this Data Processing Addendum will control.
You are responsible for any costs and expenses arising from Squarespace’s compliance with your instructions or requests pursuant to the Agreement (including this Data Processing Addendum) which fall outside the standard functionality made available by Squarespace generally through the Services.
