If you do not agree with any part of this Policy, you must not provide your personal information to us.

We may also use your personal information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing and marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing.
When we collect personal information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it. This information will be shared with, but not limited to, airlines, hotels and hostels, host schools and clubs, our Information and Technology (IT) provider and various suppliers where applicable. We will advise all recipients that this information is sensitive and must be destroyed upon completion of services. Please note that the location of these providers is not limited to Australia. Your personal information may be disclosed to overseas entities in relation to the facilitation of your travel booking.

For example, any information that is required by an insurance company related to personal health cover will be shared with the third party to ensure cover is suitable.
We will collect your personal information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. In such a case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.
