We need your assistance to ensure that your personal data is current, complete and accurate in order to provide correct booking information or flight itinerary to the appropriate customs and immigration authorities as required by law. Please contact us if any updates are necessary.
When and why do we collect ‘sensitive personal data’?
Certain categories of personal information, such as that about race, ethnicity, religion or health, are considered ‘sensitive personal data’.
Generally, we do not ask for sensitive personal data. However, we may occasionally receive this data, because:
- you have requested specific medical assistance from us and/or an airport operator, such as the provision of wheelchair assistance or oxygen, or
- you have otherwise chosen to provide such information to us (or a third party such as the travel agent through which you made your booking)
In addition, you may have made other requests in regard to your travel arrangements that may imply or suggest that you hold particular religious beliefs or have a particular medical condition e.g. if you request a particular type of special meal this may imply or suggest.
If you withdraw your consent, it may mean we will not be able to provide all or parts of the services you have requested from us. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Please be aware that in these circumstances you will not be able to cancel or obtain a refund of any fees you have paid.
You may at any time withdraw your consent by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org
BH AIR cannot distinguish the age of persons who access and use our websites. If a minor (according to applicable laws) has provided us with personal information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us to remove the relevant personal information and unsubscribe the minor.
