We 'll review this policy from time to time to make sure it 's up-to-date . If we make changes , we 'll post the latest version here . When we make significant changes , we 'll let you know when you next access our services , or by other communications .
For example , this includes information that may of itself identify you such as your name , contact details , trip itinerary , internet protocol ( " IP " ) address , cookie strings or device IDs , as well as information that may not on its own identify you , but which we store alongside such identifiers , such as how you are using our services or the country you are in when you do so .
We only use your information where you 've given us your consent , where its necessary to deliver the services you 've requested , where it 's necessary to exercise or comply with legal rights or obligations , or for normal business purposes of the kind set out in this policy . When we need to do so to deliver our services or facilitate the performance of a contract you 've entered – or are entering – into , such as making a booking with us or a Travel Supplier .
Ensuring our services are accessible and usable by you on your specific device , for example by altering the way we display information to you based on your device type ; Generating results in response to your search queries , for example providing you with a list of the flight , hotel or car-hire options that best meet your requirements ; Where you select a Travel Supplier that you 'd like to make a booking with either :
Security and fraud-prevention purposes , for example by storing a subset of your payment information such as last 4 digits of your credit card and IP address to record where a payment may have originated from , or to protect our services against misuse of our APIs or from automated software agents ; Identifying and correcting faults with our services or areas for improvement through use of information like browser type , operating system , locale and language information and general site activity alongside any specific feedback you may provide to us from time to time ; Providing customer service or help services to you in relation to any questions you raise or issues you might encounter while using our services . For example , although it is the ultimate Travel Supplier who is responsible to you for any issues you might have with a flight , hotel or other travel service you 've booked via Skyscanner , if you or the Travel Supplier contacts us regarding an issue with your booking we 'll need to use some of your personal data to be able to assist you ; Understanding and evaluating how , when and why people are using Skyscanner for the purposes of delivering , evaluating , improving and optimising the delivery of our services .
if you have asked us to send you newsletters or other marketing communications , we may tailor the timings or content of these to reflect what we believe will be of most interest to you , such as by using the fact that you 've recently searched for a flight in Barcelona to prompt us to ask whether you 'd like to search for a hotel in Barcelona as well ; we may use your location information to predict which airport you are likely to want to depart from or arrive back to ; and displaying relevant advertisements to you about our services or other services that we think may be of interest to you .
Personalising your experience involves us creating a profile and timeline of your activity on our services . However , we are careful to ensure that our activities do not involve undertaking any profiling or automated decision making that might have any legal or other significant effects on you . Informing strategic business decisions through creating aggregated datasets of anonymised data that allow us to generate helpful insights into patterns or trends within the travel industry . For example , we can use search data to monitor demand for destinations and make sure that the fares and travel options that we surface to our users are available via our services .
in such circumstances we will use your information to evaluate your suitability for the role and communicate with you throughout the recruitment process , such as by emailing you with details about the job or an offer and by arranging or conducting interviews ; depending on how far you get through the recruitment process we will use information in your application to check your references and background , use your verification and identification documents for screening purposes and to confirm your suitability and right to work , and potentially arrange travel to visit us for interview .
Where we process your personal data based on a legitimate interest we will only do so where the processing is relevant , adequate and limited to what is necessary for the purpose it was collected for . And of course , we 'll always ensure our legitimate interests do not unfairly impact on your own rights and freedoms .
We will obtain your consent for purposes such as : sending you emails for services you request such as Price Alerts ; sending you direct marketing communications via email , push notification or other means where you have consented to us doing so ; storing certain cookies on your device , where doing so requires consent ; and recording and evaluating feedback you give us where you agree to take part in one-to-one user testing .

It also includes details of the bookings you have made via Skyscanner . We may also know your location from your mobile or your IP address .

For example , when you come to our website via a promotional partner , or when you log into your Skyscanner account using our social network login feature .
