The following terms and conditions apply in relation to contracts arranged by Dragon Tree Travel Unipessoal Lda. as an agent and supplier, for transfers between the departure points and destinations specified in the written confirmation issued by, which is the trading name of Dragon Tree Travel Unipessoal Lda.


This Privacy Notice (“Notice”) establishes how to Protect the privacy of the Personal Data of our employees, customers, partners or any other entity with which DRAGON TREE TRAVEL – UNIPESSOAL, LDA. relates in the context of its activity.


As a travel agency, DRAGON TREE TRAVEL needs to collect, use and disclose Personal Data to perform business functions and activities, including making and managing travel reservations on behalf of its customers. At DRAGON TREE TRAVEL, we are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of Personal Data and maintaining a controlled environment (physical, electronic, human and procedural controls) in line with operational risks.

In the context of the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“RGPD”), DRAGON TREE TRAVEL is a “data controller” of any personal information provided to us in the context of the relationship with our customers or any other Interested Parties.


By providing Personal Data, Interested Parties agree that this Notice will apply to how we handle their Personal Data and consent to it being collected, used and disclosed as detailed in this Notice. If you do not agree with any part of this Notice, Interested Parties must not provide us with their Personal Data. If you do not provide us with your Personal Data, as well as if you withdraw the Consent you have provided in accordance with this Notice, this may affect our ability to provide you with services, or negatively affect the quality of services we may provide you. For example, most travel bookings must be made with the traveler's full name and must include contact details and appropriate identification (eg passport details) and we cannot make bookings without this information. It should be noted that there may be cases where local data protection laws impose more restrictive Personal Data processing practices than the practices set out in this Notice. When this occurs, we will adjust our Personal Data handling practices to comply with those same local laws.



Personal Data has the meaning given by local data protection laws and, where the GDPR applies, the meaning is deemed given within the scope of the GDPR. Personal Data generally means data relating to an individual who can be identified from that data; or is identifiable from the combination of this data with other available data.

Generally, the type of Personal Data we collect is that which is necessary to facilitate travel arrangements, support bookings or to organize travel-related services and/or products on behalf of our customers.

In this regard, we normally process the following types of Personal Data about our customers:

Contact details (such as name, home/mailing address, telephone number, email address);

Payment data;

Passport details;

Loyalty / frequent flyer program data;

Data on dietary needs and health problems (if any); and

Other data relevant to travel plans or required by the travel service provider(s) (e.g. airlines and accommodation or tourism providers).


When our customers contact us for other purposes, Personal Data related to those purposes may also be collected. For example, we may collect Personal Data in order to be able to contact our customers in the context of a competition/campaign in which they have entered or to respond to questions or comments that they have sent to us. We also collect data necessary for use in our business activities or that of our related entities, including, for example, financial details needed to process transactions, video surveillance footage used for security purposes or other relevant Personal Data that our customers may want us to know. to supply.


Under some circumstances we collect Personal Data that may be considered sensitive data according to local data protection laws. Sensitive data may include (without limitation) racial or ethnic origin, philosophical or religious beliefs or affiliations, sexual preferences or practices, criminal record or alleged criminal record, membership of political, professional or trade associations, biometric and genetic information, data financial and health data. We will only collect sensitive data in accordance with local data protection laws, with the explicit consent of the subjects and where the data is reasonably necessary or is directly related to one or more of our functions or operational activities (for example, to make plans for travel), unless required or authorized to do so by law. To the extent permitted or required by local data protection laws, our customers consent to us using and disclosing their sensitive data solely for the purpose for which it was collected, unless we subsequently receive their consent for another purpose. For example, if our customers provide us with health data related to a travel insurance they intend to take out, customers consent to us using and disclosing this health data on their behalf in contacts made with the entity promoting that travel insurance. Another example happens when our customers want to make known their religious beliefs because they are interested, for example, in certain vacation packages, consenting to the use and disclosure of that information for the operation of the trip. We will not use sensitive data for purposes other than those for which they were collected, unless we receive consent from the holders to do so.



We only collect Personal Data in accordance with local data protection laws. We generally collect Personal Data in the context of contacts made with our customers, unless it is unreasonable or impractical to do so. Generally, this collection will occur when our customers:

contact us personally, by telephone, letter, e-mail;

visit us through our website; or

contact us through social networks.

We may also collect Personal Data when our customers:

purchase or inquire about travel arrangements or other products and services;

enter contests or register for campaigns/promotions;

sign up to receive marketing communications (e.g. e-newsletters);

ask for brochures or other information.

In some circumstances, it may be necessary to collect Personal Data about our customers from third parties. This includes cases where an individual makes a travel booking on behalf of another person(s) (eg a family booking, a group booking or a booking made by an employer). When this happens, we rely on the authorization of the person making the travel reservation to act on behalf of any other traveler on the reservation, as well as that person's consent to collect, use and disclose Personal Data in accordance with this Notice. Our customers must inform us immediately if they become aware that their Personal Data has been provided to us by another person without their consent or if they did not obtain such consent before providing us with the Personal Data of another individual.


We make every effort to maintain the accuracy and integrity of the Personal Data we store and to ensure that all Personal Data is up to date. However, any Interested Party may contact us immediately if there is any change to their Personal Data or if they become aware that we have inaccurate Personal Data (please see section 13 below). We cannot be responsible for any losses arising from inaccurate, erroneous, defective or incomplete personal information that the Interested Parties, or someone acting on their behalf, provide us.


We will only process Personal Data when:

We have been given consent for such processing (which we may withdraw at any time, as detailed in section 8 of this Notice);

Such processing is necessary for us to provide our services;

Such processing is necessary for compliance with legal obligations; and/or

Such processing is necessary for our legitimate interests or that of any third party receiving this Personal Data (as detailed in sections 5 and 6 of this Notice).


When a customer contacts us in the context of an inquiry or booking of our services, the purpose for which we collect their Personal Data is generally to provide advice on booking products and/or services related to our activity. However, the purpose of collection may differ depending on the specific circumstances disclosed in this Notice (eg collection of Personal Data for the purpose of participating in a campaign, collecting feedback, etc.).


When a customer makes a booking for travel or products / services with our support, we generally act as an agent for the travel service providers (eg for a hotel). In that case, we process Personal Data as necessary to provide the requested services, including collecting Personal Data for our internal purposes as described in this Notice, and for the travel services provider for whom we act as an agent (for example, to provide the contracted services). For example, if you book a flight through DRAGON TREE TRAVEL, we will use Personal Data to enable the flight to be booked and we will disclose the Personal Data to the airline to enable it to provide the flight service.


We may share data with our travel service providers (hotels, airlines, car rental companies or other providers related to reservations for contracted services). These service providers may also use Personal Data as described in their respective privacy policies to obtain additional information to facilitate booking travel or providing requested services. We recommend that our Customers review the privacy policies of any travel service providers purchased through DRAGON TREE TRAVEL. We will provide copies of all relevant terms, conditions and privacy policies of the travel service providers upon request.


We act as agents for many travel service providers around the world, so it is not possible to list in this Notice all the travel service providers for which we act (in particular their locations). For more information on disclosure of Personal Data to travel service providers located outside the GDPR context, please see section 6 of this Notice.


If there is any concern regarding the transfer of Personal Data to a provider of our services, or if further information is required, please refer to section 13 of this Notice.

support internal organization and accounting;

support compliance with legal obligations or applicable customs/immigration requirements related to travel; and

other purposes, as authorized or required by law (for example, to avoid a threat to life, to protect health or safety, or to enforce DRAGON TREE TRAVEL legal rights).


Where permitted by local data protection laws, we may use Personal Data to carry out marketing activities relating to our (and third-party) products and services that we believe may be of interest to our Customers, unless they have asked us not to receive such information. These campaigns may include, but are not limited to, sending email, digital marketing and other electronic notifications. Personal Data will be used to send digital marketing material (including e-newsletters, e-mail, SMS, MMS and IM) if Customers have chosen to receive them. Customers can sign up to receive e-newsletters and other promotional / digital marketing materials by following the relevant links on our website or asking one of our employees to do so.


Any individual who does not wish to receive promotional or marketing material from us, or participate in market inquiries or receive other types of communications, should refer to sections 8 and 13 of this Notice.
