Personal information we collect and hold
A reference to "personal information" in this policy means information which identifies you as an individual or from which your identity can be reasonably ascertained.
In certain circumstances, we may collect personal information about you, for example when you make a booking on our website or via phone call. The types of information we collect may include your name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, identification information and information about your travel plans. We may also collect personal information about your interactions with us, including any contact we have with you by telephone, email or online. For security, training and dispute resolution purposes, we may also monitor and record your communications with us (including telephone and email) and operate video and audio surveillance devices in our premises and other areas of operation, such as on our buses.
We generally collect your personal information directly from you, but may also collect it from third parties, including your representatives, travel companions, travel agencies and our related bodies corporate.
Use and disclosure of personal information
We collect, use and disclose personal information to provide, administer and improve our services, issue tickets, record you purchases and bookings, maintain and update our records, verify your identity, correspond with you, protect our lawful interests and deal with your questions, requests and concerns.
We may not be able to do these things without your personal information. For example, we may not be able to issue you a ticket electronically or respond to your enquiries.
We may also collect, use and disclose personal information that you provide (eg. when purchasing a ticket online) to provide marketing communications and targeted advertising to you on an ongoing basis by telephone, SMS, email, online and other means, unless you opt out or we are subject to legal restrictions. In some cases we will ask for you specific permission to do things like share your details with a particular company for their own marketing purposes. We may do this with the assistance of our marketing service providers.
When you provide credit card details online, these will pass automatically between your browser and our bank's secure payment site for authentication. We do not at any time see or have the ability to access your credit card details online.
We may also collect, use and disclose your personal information in connection with:
- suspected fraud, misconduct or unlawful activity;
- lawful information requests from courts, government agencies and legal practitioners; and
- acquisitions or potential acquisitions of our business.
We may exchange your personal information with third parties including our related bodies corporate and service providers that assist us with archival, auditing, accounting, customer contact, legal, business consulting, banking, payment and refund processing, delivery, data processing, data analysis, research, marketing, investigation or IT services.
We hold personal information electronically and in hard copy form, both at our own premises and with the assistance of our service providers.
