  • Transmittal of offers/booking confirmations/bills/travel materials
  • Transmittal of vouchers that have been ordered
  • Transmittal of other orders

If you have consented to having us process your personal data, it is processed only for the purposes laid down in the consent statement and in the agreed scope.
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with immediate effect. Your withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before you withdrew it.
