Data Protection Policy


Travco receive instructions from its clients. These instructions concern Travco making hotel bookings which are part of the holiday packages. The tourist for whom the holiday is arranged is the end user. As Travco is processing the end user’s requirements on behalf of the client and is accountable to the client, Travco is proceeding on the basis that Travco is the data processor and the client is the data controller. Travco will have no dealings with the end user.

With effect from 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will replace the outgoing 1998 Data Protection Act. When the Data Protection Bill becomes law that legislation will, post Brexit, enshrine the GDPR in UK law. Reference to the GDPR is also a reference to the applicable provision of the Data Protection Bill. Reference to an Article is a reference to an Article in the GDPR.

The GDPR places additional obligations and liabilities on data processors. The applicable points are set out below.

  1. Process personal data only according to the data controller's instructions under Article 29.
  2. Maintain a record of data processing activities that complies with Article 30(2).
  3. Implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in compliance with Article 32.
  4. Have written data controller authorization before engaging subcontractors under Article 28(2) and pass obligations down to any data processors it engages via contract as specified in Article 28(4).
  5. Notify the data controller of any security breach without undue delay in accordance with Article 33(2).
  6. Only transfer personal data internationally in accordance with Article 44, which requires the data processor to have a compliant data transfer mechanism.
  7. Make available to the data controller all information for the data controller to demonstrate compliance with its obligations under Article 28 (Processors), as set out in Article 28(3)(h).

Travco is aware of these obligations. The purpose of this document is to outline the necessary contractual clauses and to disclose the relevant information pertaining to Travco’s role as the data processor.


The GDPR requires data processors to confirm that they are GDPR compliant. To that end Travco is happy to disclose certain information.

Travco confirms that, unless requested, personal data disclosed to Travco will not be transferred outside the European Economic Area. If any such request is made then Travco will insist that the transfer is done in accordance with the GDPR. Travco will not “profile” people.

Travco will be fully transparent. Travco recognises that its clients in their capacity as data controllers have to compile its own audits and assessments. Travco will do what is reasonable to assist.
