We may use this data to serve relevant ads about our products and services across the user’s internet journey. Chrome, for example, now uses ad blocking technology, but only for ads considered to be obtrusive such as autoplaying sound and video and full page ads.

Classic Collection Holidays Limited is registered in England (no. 1512421). Our Head Office and registered address is 5 Adair Street, Manchester, M1 2NQ.
Under the Data Protection Act 2018, and for the purposes of the UK GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), we are a Data Controller and, as the privacy of our customers’ personal data is of paramount importance to us, we have detailed below how we safeguard its use.
Your personal information
We collect and use your information in the following situations
- Where our use of your information is necessary for us to fulfil our contract with you
- Where our use of your information and feedback is necessary for the evaluation of our product and services
- Where we believe it is necessary to use your information to comply with a legal obligation
- Where we have your consent to use your information for legitimate marketing purposes
Whether you order a brochure, sign up to receive our e-marketing, request a holiday quotation, start a Live Chat, or confirm a booking with us, we will need some, or all, of the following: your name and title, date of birth, full address with postcode, email address and phone number (preferably mobile). Personal information will be held securely on our systems.
If you are paying a deposit to confirm a holiday or paying the balance, we will need your debit or credit card details including card number, name on card, expiry date and CVC. Plus, dependent upon the card, we’ll need the start date and issue number of the card and you’ll need to confirm the cardholder’s address. Credit and debit card transactions are instantaneous and encrypted and details are not stored by us. In exceptional circumstances and only when specifically instructed and authorised by you, your credit/debit card details may be passed to a third party.
How we use your personal information
Changes to your personal information
How do we protect your personal information?
All the information you give us is held on secure servers and protected by Firewall software put in place to protect our network from security breaches.
Forwarding information to suppliers, agents and industry bodies
For the operational purposes of organising and fulfilling your holiday, your personal information will be passed to suppliers. These suppliers include, but are not limited to: airlines, hotels, transport companies and overseas agents.
In the event of our insolvency we, or any appointed insolvency practitioner, may disclose your personal information to The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and/or ABTA so that they can assess the status of your booking and advise you on the appropriate course of action under any scheme of financial protection. The CAA’s General Privacy Notice is at https://www.caa.co.uk/Our-work/About-us/General-privacy-notice/ and ABTA’s Privacy Notice is at https://www.abta.com/privacy-notice.
Third party direct mailing and emarketing suppliers
We believe that promoting offers, highlighting brochure launches and giving inspirational holiday ideas, may be of benefit to you, and we carry out direct mailings although these are on a small scale. These mailings only contain information about our own holidays which we feel are of legitimate interest to you. Your contact details (title, name and address) are passed to our mailing house exclusively for the purposes of sending brochures and other relevant marketing information (the mailing house deletes all personal data after 14 days of each mailing). Email addresses for e-marketing purposes are held by our e-marketing supplier so that we can promote our holidays to you. These suppliers hold your information on our behalf and they will never contact you directly, nor will they share your details with anyone else.
You may stop marketing communications at any time by letting us know.
Telephone call recording
We record calls in order maintain our high standards of service. Recordings are kept for a limited period of time and are only accessible by the management team.
Our commitment to data protection is managed by our group’s Data Protection Officer (DPO) who is responsible for ensuring that we, as an organisation, use best practices to protect your personal data.
