California Residents Privacy Rights:
Visiting the Site from outside the United States:
Users of the Site from the European Union (“EU”):
If your personal information is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), in the course of providing the Site to you, we may transfer your personal information outside of the EU, principally to Fusion’s servers in the United States; this means that your personal information will not have the automatic protection of European data protection laws (including the GDPR) which apply in the EU. In these circumstances, in order to ensure that your personal information continues to have adequate protection when it is transferred outside the EU, your personal information will only be transferred on one of the following bases:
- Where the transfer is subject to one or more of the appropriate safeguards for international transfers prescribed by applicable law (for example, standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission);
- A European Commission decision provides that the country or territory to which the transfer is made ensures an adequate level of protection; or
- There exists another situation where the transfer is permitted under applicable law (for example, where we have your explicit consent).
You can obtain more details of the protection given to your personal information when it is transferred outside the EU by contacting us using the details set out below.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to us. For that reason, Fusion does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from children under 13 years of age. If Fusion learns that personal information of children under 13 years of age has been collected on or through the Site, Fusion will take the appropriate steps to delete such personal information. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 years of age who has become a registered user of the Site or otherwise has used the booking engine or our Services, please contact us by email at [email protected] to have your child’s transactions terminated and personal information deleted.
