The processing of your personal data may entail the transfer of your personal data to third country that does not provide the same level of protection as within the European Economic Area. This may be the case if we share your personal data with our Member airlines or with selected other third parties, with whom we have partnership agreements.

Where applicable, we have taken appropriate safeguards to transfer your personal data to a country located outside the EEA, if that country does not provide an adequate level of protection according to the applicable data protection laws, including standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. In addition, it may also happen that the transfer of personal data is necessary for the execution of an agreement in your interest between us, so that the personal data may also be transferred without adequacy decision or appropriate safeguards.

You have the right to ask us to block or suppress the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances, which means that we suspend the processing of your data for a certain period of time. Circumstances which may give rise to this right include situations where the accuracy of your personal data was contested but some time is needed for us to verify their (in)accuracy.
