What is personal information?
Personal information is defined as any information which relates to a living individual who can be identified either:
- from the information we hold, or
- from the information combined with any other information which is already in the possession of, or likely to come into the possession of, the person or organisation holding the information
Personal information also includes any expression of opinions about an individual, and any indication of the intentions of the data controller (i.e. the Company) or any other person in respect of the individual.
How long will we keep your personal information?
We will only keep your personal information for as long as necessary. At the end of the retention period, or the life of a particular record, it will be reviewed and deleted, unless there is any special reason for keeping it.
What is our legal basis for using your personal information?
To use your personal information there must be a lawful basis to do this. These are, consent, contract, legal obligation, vital interest, public tasks and legitimate interest. In most cases the processing must also be necessary.
The legal bases upon which we hold your information include consent, contract and legitimate interest. The specific legal basis will depend upon the reason or reasons why we collected and need to use your information.
The GDPR sets a high standard for consent to use people’s information. Consent requires a positive opt-in. Pre-ticked boxes or any other consent method by default is no longer allowed. We will not generally rely on consent as a basis for processing personal data. In the limited circumstances where we may rely upon consent, we will specifically obtain this in the course of collecting the data.
When we state “we”, “us”, or “our” in this privacy statement, we are referring to “Ski Armadillo”.
Please note that the information given here equally applies if someone else makes arrangements on your behalf and provides us with your details. If you handle the arrangements for other travellers, please ensure that they are aware of the information contained within this Privacy Centre.

- Who it is shared with
- How long it is kept for
Right of access
You have the right to obtain a copy of your personal information and supplementary information to understand how and why we are your information and that we are using it lawfully. This is commonly known as a Subject Access Request (SAR). This should be made in writing to the Data Protection Officer (DPO) whose contact details are set out in section 15.

Right to rectification
You have the right to have inaccurate personal information rectified. You also have the right to have incomplete personal information completed – although this may depend on the reasons for using your personal information.
Right to erasure
In certain circumstances you have the right to have your personal information erased. This is also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. The right to erasure does not apply to all cases such as complying with a legal obligation, performing a task set out in the public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal rights.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request the Company to restrict using your personal information in some circumstances. This may be because you are challenging the accuracy of the information and we are verifying the accuracy of the data. In most cases we will not need to restrict using your personal information indefinitely but will need to have the restriction in place for a certain period of time.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Individuals also have the right to request that a controller transmits this data directly to another controller – this is commonly used for banking and insurance purposes when wanting to switch providers.
Right to object
You have the right to object to the Company using your personal information. The right to object only applies in certain circumstances and requests to object to our using personal information will be considered on an individual basis. The Company will be unable to stop using personal information if it is needed to carry out a statutory function.
Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling
Automated individual decision-making is a decision made by automated means without any human involvement. An example of this would be an online decision to award a loan. Profiling can be used to find out about individuals’ preferences, predict behaviour or make decisions about people. The Company will not make any solely automated decisions on you that have any legal or similarly significant event on you.
