Protect your privacy
Information we collect and how we collect it.
We collect and maintain personal information about you from many sources to understand and meet your needs, facilitate your travel, manage our business, and for other purposes disclosed to you. For example, we collect personal information about you from:
- You, when you voluntarily provide us with information
- Your transactions with iTravel Network LLC.
- Other third party sources, such as travel agents, airlines and travel service providers, telecommunication companies (e.g., transportation or tour operators, telephone service carriers).
If the information is to be collected directly from you, you may in some cases have the option to decline providing that information. However, your choice to not provide information may impact your use of certain features or services.
The personal information we collect about you through these various sources may include, but is not limited to:
- Name, addresses and telephone numbers
- Date of birth and gender
- Email addresses and fax numbers
- Credit/debit card number(s), including associated billing address(es) and expiration date(s)
- Information required to facilitate travel or other services, including travel companion(s) names, emergency contacts, photographs and signature
- Information about your travel, including booking and itinerary information, requests for assistance, interactions with staff and dietary restrictions
- Details of your previous travel and travel-related issues
- Driver’s license number, issuing country and expiring date
- Passport number, nationality and country of residence
- Technical information such as your browser type, IP address, type of operating system you use, your geolocation, the name of your internet service provider, mobile advertising identifiers, and pages visited on our Services
- Information provided via survey, focus group or other marketing research efforts
- When you send us an email or online customer service request, we will retain the content of the message, your email address or any contact information you provide, and our response in order to handle any follow-up questions you may have. We also use this information to measure how effectively we address your concerns.
iTravel Network LLC creates a record for each booking. When you book travel on itravelnetwork.net, we will collect and store information about your transaction, including whether you booked your flight on itravelnetwork.net or through another sales channel (such as a travel agency). itravelnetwork.net will also collect and store information about changes to your booking, including a cancellation.
If you book travel for someone else, we may collect your billing information but may communicate with the traveler directly about their booking.
If your booking includes emergency contact information, we may share personal information with your emergency contact or attempt to collect information about you from your emergency contact, as appropriate based on the nature of the emergency.
In the event of a service delay, cancellation, or other disruption, we may use the contact information provided in your booking to notify you, and the individuals traveling on the same booking, about the disruption.
Sensitive personal information
To the extent that the personal information we collect constitutes sensitive personal information under applicable law, including where such laws promote a substantial public interest, iTravel Network LLC will collect and process this sensitive personal information within the limits provided by applicable law. Where required by law, iTravel Network LLC will seek your specific consent before processing sensitive personal information.
Some examples of this type of information include:
- You have provided medical information to us while requesting specific assistance (such as the provision of wheelchair assistance) from us and/or an airport operator
- You have sought clearance from us to fly with a medical condition or device
- You have otherwise chosen to provide such information to us or it has been passed onto us by a third party such as the travel agent through which you made your booking.
In addition, you may have requested services (such as a meal preference or a request for wheelchair assistance) which is not “sensitive personal information” but may imply or suggest your religion, health or other information. iTravel Network LLC does not use such data to infer sensitive personal information about you.
Due to the nature of our Services, we may collect travel information, which may include personal information, about children when it is required to comply with the law, including federal aviation or security regulations, or as otherwise required to provide transportation and accommodation needs and services. We may retain personal information when required to provide transportation and related services to a child. iTravel Network LLC does not knowingly collect personal information directly from children – persons under the age of 13, or another age if required by applicable law – other than when required to comply with the law or for safety and security reasons.
If you are a parent or guardian of a child who has provided personal information without your knowledge and consent, you may request we remove this child’s information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Automatic collected information
When you use our Services, we may receive technical information such as your browser type, the type of operating system you use, your geolocation, the name of your internet service provider, mobile advertising identifiers, and pages visited on our Services. iTravel Network LLC gets this information by using technologies, including cookies, web beacons, and mobile device geolocation to provide and improve our Services and advertising, including across browsers and devices (also known as cross-device linking). We also use this information to verify that visitors meet the criteria required to process their requests and for reporting activity on our Services. For example, we may want to know how long the average user spends on our Services or which pages or features get the most attention. This technical information may be combined with information that is personally identifiable in order to personalize our Services and advertising to your interests, including across browsers and devices. For example, if you spend time reviewing a particular flight or destination but do not complete a travel reservation, we may use this information to show you targeted advertising about similar flights or destinations on our Services or on third-party websites. Some of this information may be shared with third parties, as described below under “Information collected by third parties on our Services.”
Additionally, and with your specific consent where required by law, iTravel Network LLC may combine the information we receive from you with information collected from other sources. This information may be used to provide offers and/or services specifically tailored to your interests in accordance with applicable laws.
