We may provide Non-Personal Data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our web site.

The third parties to whom we may provide this information may include potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising services (including web site tracking services), commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.
We will not disclose your Personal Data to third parties unless you have consented to this disclosure or unless the third party is required to fulfil your service order (in such circumstances, the third party is bound by similar data protection requirements. We will disclose your Personal Data if we believe in good faith that we are required to disclose it in order to comply with any applicable law, a summons, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other statutory requirement.
We may disclose your information to our service providers (which could be located outside Ireland/EEA) for the purpose of providing you with our services, including your flight or holiday. We may also disclose your information to companies who act as "data processors" on our behalf. These purposes include administration, providing services (and contacting you where necessary), customer care, improving our service, business management and operation, re-organisation/structuring of our business (or our group companies), risk assessment, security and crime prevention/detection, research and analysis, marketing, monitoring, assessing customer purchasing preferences, dispute resolution, credit checking and debt collection. If we search against the files of credit reference agencies, they will record the search and hence the way in which you conduct your account with us may be shared with other lenders and credit agencies.
Sensitive Personal Data: Some of your Personal Data may be considered "sensitive personal data" under the Data Protection Act 1988 as amended. (This includes, for example, any information relating to health, religion, ethnic origin or political persuasion.)
Outside the European Economic Area (EEA), controls on data protection in such countries may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country.
