If you book a holiday with Solos, we may rely on other ground and transport suppliers or on local service providers. Please be aware that Solos may be required to provide certain personal information to our service providers for the purposes of delivering your experience.

When you book travel services with us, you consent to collection, use and disclosure of your personal information by Solos — and the corresponding collection and use by the relevant travel partners or suppliers — for the purposes of administering and delivering the travel services you requested.

How is your personal information protected?
We have implemented measures designed to help protect personal information in our custody and control. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of personal information in our custody and control. Unfortunately, no collection or transmission of information over the Internet or other publicly accessible communications networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and therefore, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any such information. We have personal information retention processes designed to retain personal information of our customers for no longer than necessary for the purposes stated above or to otherwise meet legal requirements.

Cookies and IP addresses.
When you view the Website we may store information on the hard drive of your computer in the form of a "cookie" (essentially a small text file). Cookies allow us to tailor the Website to your interests and preferences. For example, a cookie might contain information about the web pages you have visited on the Website, which could allow us to customise your next visit to the Website. However, cookies do not allow us access to the rest of your computer and we do not use them to collect Personal Information about you.
Most Internet browsers enable you to delete cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored on your hard drive. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about how to do this. However, should you decide to disable any cookies we place on your computer you may not be able to use certain services or facilities on this Website.
We study visitor trends since we are interested in the successful dissemination of information through the Website. Our server creates log files of information such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address from your network, what pages were explored and the length of your visit. Analysis software is used to generate reports which helps us to learn more about how we can enhance your experience with the Website. This information is not used to develop a personal profile of you. The log files are regularly purged.
An IP address is a number designated for your computer by your Internet service provider to provide access to the Internet. Generally, an IP address will change every time your computer connects to the Internet. However, if you have a broadband connection, it is possible that the IP address that we may gather may contain information that may be deemed identifiable. This could occur due to the fact that by using certain broadband connections, your IP address would not change and could be associated with your personal computer. We may use your IP address to gather aggregate information on use. But we will only be able to identify you individually if we have the means of linking the IP address to you as a particular user. This usually requires access to additional information which we do not seek.
Information is passed from your profile as a cookie to enable the forum to display previous forum posts to you. Also cookies keep your session alive when navigating between pages.
