When you are using our travel services, either online or over the phone, you may need to trust us with some personal information. This maybe be simply your email, phone number or in rare cases passport details needed by local laws.
This is a big responsibility and we work hard to protect this information.
We also like to help you understand how you can update, manage, export, and even delete this information.
INFORMATION EOS TRAVEL COLLECTS
It is of most importance to us to make sure that you are fully aware of the type of information we collect when you use our services to book and when we are delivering the services booked (your bookings).
We collect information to better provide our travel service to you as a client and to help you have a smoother travel experience, before, during and after your holiday.
The information we collect, helps us communicate with you quickly, efficiently and preferably directly.
Things you provide to us
When you first contact us, you provide us with personal information that includes your name. We will create a profile for you. You can also choose to add a phone number or e-mail information to your profile. From our website you may like to provide us with an email address to receive updates about our services and latest offers.
Information we collect as you use our travel services
We collect information about the browsers, and devices you use to access the EOS TRAVEL web services
When using our website
We will collect anonymous browsing information to better understand how our clients use our pages and in order to help us improve the page functionality. We also rely on Google services to provide us with extra demographic and other data related to the use of our web-pages.
When using myEos
In our holiday planner service (myEos), we collect information related to the use of the tools we provide you to use before, during and after your arrival (eg. Key location etc).
This information we share with you to help you better understand what you are missing in order to better prepare for your arrival.
When sharing some of this information (eg. flight details) with a third party (e.g. supplier) we will only share what information is needed for them to provide you with that extra service.
Specifically, they will only know your Name and Flight information. They will not know any other personal information. You will on the other hand have a contact number to liaise with them direct if this proves useful for the fulfilment of the service provided.
Personal information like Passport Numbers etc you may provide to us during your checking. They are kept safe in our backoffice. They maybe required by local authorities (in order to tackle illegal imigration etc.). In some circumstances we maybe required to keep this information for a period, and in accordance to local laws.
We collect information about your activity in our website and myEos services. The activity information we collect may include:
- Terms you search for
- Views and interactions with pages
- Important links you have followed
- Purchase activity
We are committed to make available all this activity and help you manage this activity information in the near future. Currently you will need to request this by sending an email to EOS TRAVEL. We will be rolling out an option for clients to access their information themselves.
Your location information
We collect information about your location (IP) when you use our web services, which helps us confirm that you have viewed important links related to your arrival and in rare cases understand where you are located, to help put you back on track when visiting your property for the first time.

WHY EOS TRAVEL COLLECTS DATA

We also use your information to ensure our services are working as intended, such as driving instructions to properties. We use the information to help us identify how comprehensive our services are and, combined with our client feedback, we improve specific parts or all across our services.
Especially your reviews, qualify as the best and most important feedback that we use for this purpose.
Develop new travel destinations and web services
We use the information we collect while providing our travel services, client’s use of our website and your reviews to understand what you need. For example, we will try to improve the cleaning service of a property if it drops below a certain standard and include new features in a property following your feedback. We will also direct our efforts to include more properties in destinations you visit more and search more on our website. Sometimes your feedback will help us add a new destination to our books.
Your use of our web services in myEos, will direct us to improve and develop new tools to help your holiday experience.
We don’t show our website or myEos personalised on sensitive categories, such as race, religion, sexual orientation, or health. We are actually committed not to collect such information ever.
We don’t share any kind of such information with our suppliers (owners, service suppliers etc).
Communicate with you
The main reason of collecting information with you is to eventually communicate with you directly. When you are coming from a advertising marketplace, your email is sometimes hidden from us. This can be a good thing when you are buying a DVD. It is a completely different story though when booking a holiday. You having direct access to our services and sensitive information like key locations etc it is of the outpost importance to a stress free and smooth holiday experience.
So we need your email for example to send you notification about payments, to inform you about upcoming changes to our services, local events that are happening during you holiday, ask you to review your holiday, offer you extra services like car hire, boat hire, transfers etc.
