This enquiry data may be processed for the purposes of offering, marketing and selling relevant goods and/or services to you based upon your request. The legal basis for this processing is your consent as such information is only sent in response to a direct request from you.

3.       Accountability & Management

3.1.    The information supplied by the individual making a purchase and/or a booking will not be shared with any third party and is only for use by us to contact the individual to confirm their purchase and/or booking or to advise them of any alteration to their purchase and/or booking.

3.6.    All TFC staff are trained in-house with regards to data protection, processing and storage in line with the requirements of GDPR. Employees are trained to be aware of the security vulnerabilities involved in the cooperation of an unwitting person with access to internal systems and are therefore not permitted to disclose any personal information of any nature to any person or party other than the individual who provided the data.
