WHO ARE WE?
Preference Pass is a new website built for tourists, providing a means of finding and booking all the activities and services they could possibly need during their vacation. We research the best providers, who offer only the best, most desirable services and cut a deal with them to provide the tourist with a heavily discounted offer. We then pass this offer on to our pass holders at no additional charge whatsoever. We have removed all the middlemen during this process, giving the pass holder the means of buying directly from the supplier. As a pass holder of Preference Pass you get access to all our discounts to use them as many times as you like throughout the duration of your Pass. Payment will be made directly to the service provider, not us.
Our company is located in Ireland, with the registered address at Drumcashel, Castlebellingham, County Louth, A91V589.
Preference Pass is the data controller and our Data Protection Officer can be contacted by email: email@example.com.

OUR LEGAL BASIS FOR COLLECTING PERSONAL DATA:
- Collecting personal data based on consents
The collection of personal data based on consent from the data subject will be done by using “Consent Forms” that will store documentation related to the consent given by the individual. Individual consents will always be stored and documented in our systems.
- Collecting personal data based on legitimate interest
We may use personal data if it is considered to be of legitimate interest, and if the privacy interests of the data subjects do not override this interest. Normally, to establish the legal basis for data collection, an assessment has been made during which a mutual interest between Preference Pass and the individual person has been identified. This legal basis is primarily related to sales, marketing and customer service. We will always inform individuals about their privacy rights and the purpose for collecting personal data.
- What type of personal data is collected?
We collect (as a minimum) name, email address and number of people that you will include in your Preference Pass. Also depending on the type of reservation, we might also ask for your phone number, in addition to the name of any guest you would be including in your Preference Pass. Any preferences (e.g. meal preferences or any mobility restrictions) so we can have the essential data needed to book any of the activities or services you may have chosen in our website. We may also collect your country, feedback, comments and questions received from you in service-related communication and activities, such as phone calls and emails. From our websites we may collect actions taken on the site.
If you upload photos or videos, add posts or comments, etc. on our Facebook business page, the information can be read by anyone with access to Facebook site and used for purposes over which Preference Pass or you have no control. Therefore, Preference Pass is not responsible for any information you submit to our Facebook business page, or other similar social media sites.
Preference Pass does not collect or process any special categories of personal data, such as public unique identifiers or sensitive personal data.
Preference Pass does not keep any credit card information as it goes directly to third-party payment platforms (Stripe.com, Paypal.com, Oxxo Pay at Conekta.com)
- Why do we collect and use your personal data?
The main reason we ask you for personal details is to help administer your online bookings and ensure you get the best service possible. We also use your personal data to contact you and inform you about our latest deals and special offers that we think would interest you.
- Personal data you give us about others.
You might be doing the activity or service booked through us with other guests whose details you provide as part of the reservation. The only information we ask about your guests are their names and if they are children or adults.
However, now we should point out that it’s your responsibility to ensure the person or people you've provided personal information about are aware that you’ve done so, and have accepted how Preference Pass uses their information (as described in this privacy statement).
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We store personal data for as long as we find it necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the personal data was collected, while also considering our need to answer your queries or resolve possible problems, to comply with legal requirements under applicable laws, to attend to any legal claims/complaints and for safeguarding purposes.
This means that we may retain your personal data for a reasonable period of time after your last interaction with us.
