(1) Your contact information, such as name, username, telephone number, email address or other addresses - such information allows us to identify you, to facilitate your future booking and to communicate with you, for customer service, account management, support and training purposes.

(2) Your booking details - such as driver information, car rental preferences information, booking dates and location; this processing is necessary for the management of your booking, including:

In addition, we also use third party websites like social networks to display targeted advertising to which you might be exposed when visiting these third party websites.

By exception, if you are already an existing customer and the message concerns services similar to those you have already purchased, the underlying processing aiming at promoting these services will not be based on your consent but on our "legitimate interest".
You may tell us at any time if you do not wish to receive marketing messages from us by contacting us at [email protected] or by choosing to opt out of receiving additional promotional e-mails from us by clicking on the 'unsubscribe' link in any such e-mail, or by following any instructions we may include in the message sent to you (the "Opt-out request" or "Request"). Please note that, once we receive your request, it may take an additional period of time for the Opt-Out Request to become effective. Note that, if you opt-out of our promotional communications, we may still e-mail or communicate with you from time-to-time, if we need to provide you with information or for other commercially, non-marketing reasons related to the Services.

The above processing aiming at promoting our Services is based on our "legitimate interest".
