4. How and why we use personal data

We will only use your personal information, in accordance with relevant legal obligations, where:

a) We need the information to fulfil our contract with you

If we have entered into a contract to provide you with our Services, we will need your personal data in order to do so. The personal data that we use will depend on the service(s) we have agreed. For example:

b)  It is necessary for our legitimate interest (reasonable business purpose) in doing so

We will use your information for our legitimate business reasons where our doing so will not unduly affect your rights. Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.

These legitimate interests include the requirement to run our business, to keep our records updated, to analyse how customers use our services, to grow our business and develop our marketing strategy.

We will use your identity, log-in, contact and usage information to keep our records up to date.

We will use your technical, location and usage information to:

We may also use any or all of the information above to administer and manage our business in general, to detect and prevent misuse of our Services (including fraud and unauthorised payments), and to enforce our Terms and Conditions or any other contract to which we may be a party. If you feel that your interests and fundamental rights outweigh our business purposes, and that we should therefore stop processing your data, please let us know.

c) You have given us your consent

If you sign up to our mailing lists, we will send you updates and marketing information that you have consented to receive. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send, or by emailing us at

We will only ever store any 'special categories' of data when you have provided us with your explicit consent to allow this.

We will only ever use your exact location data if you have given us your express consent to this. Likewise, we may need your contact, identity, technical and/or usage information to respond to a question you have asked us.

d) We need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation

In certain circumstances, we may need to retain or use your personal data to comply with regulations and/or the law.

5. Children

Our Services are not intended to be used by any child or young person under the age of 18. Please do not provide us with any personal data relating to children or young persons under the age of 18 unless you are their legal guardian.

6. How we share personal data

We will share your data:

a) With our trusted third party service providers

These include:

We will only disclose your data to third party service providers under terms of confidentiality, and they will only use your personal data for the purposes stated in this notice.

As noted above, we do not share your payment information with our payment processors - instead, you provide it to them direct. We use Stripe and Checkout. For information about how they use your personal data, please see their privacy notices at and The only exception to this is if we suspect that your account is being misused, in which case we may discuss certain aspects of your transaction history and/or identity details with our payment processors.

We will also share your information with other third parties and suppliers, but only if you ask us to do so (for example, if you ask us to make a booking on your behalf).

b) With other members of our Services

Where we provide the functionality, you may choose to share some of your profile information with other members of the Services. We will never make your profile visible to other members without your express consent.

c) With our US entity

We share personal data between our UK and US entities.

d) If you choose to share it via social media

Where we provide the functionality, you may choose to share some of your information from our Services with your friends, followers or contacts on social media.

Your personal data may be disclosed or transferred to potential or actual buyers of, investors into or lenders to our business or any of our assets, or any of the advisors or representatives of the above. If so, we will ensure that appropriate confidentiality terms are in place.

On rare occasions, we may share personal data when we believe it is necessary to comply with the law, regulation or legal request (including a court order or government inquiry); to enforce or apply our terms of use or other agreements; in the context of a business reorganisation or restructuring exercise; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our business, our employees, our users, or others.

If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

7. International transfers

Our Services are hosted on servers located worldwide. We also use cloud-hosted software solutions which are located in the US and EU.

Where we transfer personal data outside of the EU to a recipient in a third country in the absence of an adequacy decision by the European Commission, we take care to ensure that our data exports are compliant with data privacy law. We do this by relying on the Model Clauses and/or ensuring that the recipients of the data are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield scheme. For further information, and/or to obtain copies of the relevant documents, please contact us at

8. Data security

The safety of your personal data is of paramount importance to us, and we use various technical and organisational measures to ensure that your data is secure. We have  appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

9. How long we keep personal data

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

To obtain further information about how long we retain your personal data, please contact us at

10. Third party links

Our Service may contain links to third party sites whose information practices may be different than ours. When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit. Please consult all third party sites' privacy notices, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, third parties.

11. Your rights

You have the right to:

withdraw your consent to our using your data at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we reserve the right to refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

Changes to this notice or your data

We may amend or modify this privacy notice from time to time. We will post any revised notice on this site and on our app, and if the changes are significant, we will notify you by email.

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
