Information collection and use
Primarily, we require this information to understand your needs and provide you with the service that you have requested.
Your information will also enable us to provide you with access to all parts of this Site and to supply the services and features that you have requested. Omega may aggregate the information to identify patterns which we can use in our marketing and to help us develop, administer, support and improve our services and features.
In particular, Omega may use your information to contact you for your views on our services and to notify you occasionally about important changes or developments to this Site or our services.

Who has access to the information you provide or we collect?
Omega retains access to all personal information that we have collected from you.
Omega may disclose your information to other companies within our group, or to those companies that need to know them in order that we may successfully provide you with your excursion or holiday (e.g hotels and airlines). Your details may also be passed to any company processing data on our behalf (e.g credit card authorization centres), our professional advisors, public authorities (e.g customs, immigration or the police), or where we are required in law to disclose your information. If necessary such data transfers maybe to outside the European Union, where it is possible that data protection controls are not as stringent as in the UK.
When our service is available via the websites of our partners, those partners may have access to your information. Their use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policies. Omega is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of any other websites, even if you access those using links from this Site or if you can access this Site or use our services from them. We therefore recommend that you check the policy of each site that you visit and make sure that you are comfortable with the terms of such policies before providing any personal information.
If our business enters into a joint venture with or is sold to or merged with another business entity, your information may be disclosed to our new business partners or owners.
Providing you agree, Omega may provide any of the information we collect to carefully screened third parties to contact you regarding products or services that we think may be of interest to you. If you change your mind about being contacted by these third parties in the future, please email us at email@example.com and tell us.
We will not otherwise disclose, sell or distribute your information to any third party without your permission unless we are required to do so by law.
