What Is Personal Information?
PIPEDA defines personal information as information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization.
Why WWTMS Collects Personal Information.
When you purchase hotel accommodation or car rental service through WWTMS you will be required to provide sufficient personal information to allow the transaction to be completed and that information could include your name, contact coordinates, credit card information, email address, travel dates and if applicable your Aeroplan number.
WWTMS does not collect any more personal information than is required to complete your purchase.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information.
WWTMS will only use your personal information for completing your hotel or car rental purchases. We will not sell your personal information.
In order to fulfill your purchase it will be necessary to share your personal information with our authorized service providers and/or our reputable third party partners.
Service providers will disclose your travel profile to hotel or car rental agencies whose products you have purchased. As with any travel agent this information must be shared with our travel suppliers to complete your reservations.
While WWTMS takes considerable care in choosing our service providers and third party partners you should understand that they may have different privacy policies and practices than WWTMS and we encourage you to review their privacy policies to understand their procedures for collecting, using and disclosing your information.
WWTMS will not use or disclose your personal information for any purposes other than those for which it was collected without your explicit consent, unless required by law.
Disclosure without consent is also possible if an individual poses a threat against WWTMS' interests (such as consumer fraud) or if their activities could bring harm to others. It may also be necessary for WWTMS to provide customer information to third parties, such as credit card companies for the purpose of resolving disputes that arise in the normal course of business.
