We are Icelolly Marketing Limited (icelolly.com, or we or us), a company incorporated and registered in England and Wales (company number 05655962), whose registered office is at 19 – 20 Park Row House, Park Row, Leeds LS1 5JF. We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
The Company is a data controller of your Personal Data collected via the various platforms we use. We offer online travel-related services through our own website and mobile apps, as well as other online platforms such as partners’ websites and social media. The information you are about to read in this statement, generally applies to all of these platforms (which are referred to as “Platforms” in this notice).
In fact, this privacy statement applies to any kind of customer information we collect through all of the Platforms or by any other means connected to these platforms (such as when you contact our customer service team by email).
If you would like any more information or you have any comments or enquiries about our Policy or our processing of your Personal Data, please either write to us at Data Protection Manager, Icelolly Marketing Limited, 19-20 Park Row House, Park Row, Leeds LS1 5JF, or email us at [email protected].
When you first give us Personal Data through our Platforms, we will ask for your consent to contact you about our services, and those of our partners who provide services featured or included on our Websites or Platforms (“Partners”).
Where we rely on your consent as the legal basis to process your Personal Data for a particular purpose, we will not process your Personal Data for that purpose without your consent. We may process your personal data on various different legal bases (other than relying on your consent) and these are explained further below.
You can withdraw consent at any time for us to process your Personal Data to direct market to you by; (i) clicking UNSUBSCRIBE or other opt-out urls on any marketing email you receive from us (ii) clicking the unsubscribe link. https://www.icelolly.com/emailoffers/unsubscribe
You are entitled at any time to obtain information about all your Personal Data that we hold about you. We may request proof of your identity before providing this information.
If you would like access to the Personal Data that we hold about you, you can do this by emailing us at [email protected] (or writing to us at the address stated above under the heading Who Are We?)
No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other data subject rights explained below). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
We control the processing of Personal Data on our Platforms with the aim of keeping the Personal Data we hold about you accurate and up to date. If you tell us that we are holding any inaccurate Personal Data about you we will, subject to any statutory provisions, (especially those affecting our accounting, processing of claims and mandatory data retention which may prohibit deletion or anonymization), delete it or correct it promptly.
Please email us at [email protected] or write to us at the address above to correct or update your Personal Data.
You have various rights under data protection law, including:
If you want to request erasure of your Personal Data, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your Personal Data to another party, please contact us at [email protected].
Further information on these rights and GDPR can be found at https://ico.org.uk.
Right to complain: You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
We try to respond to all legitimate data subject requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

If you do send us such personal data for any reason, we will only use it with your explicit consent for the purposes specified in your request.

Our servers and data centres are located in the UK and European Union (EU). However, we may need to transfer your Personal Data from inside the UK to the European Economic Area EEA and to staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our Partners. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. These countries may have different and/or less stringent privacy/data protection and data security rules than those of the UK and EU, but we will in any event ensure that any transfer of your Personal Data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law. We will take all steps to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy.
If we need to transfer your Personal Data outside the EEA to a third party (for example, one of our travel Partners) or to one of our group companies, we will satisfy at least one of the following conditions:
If we need to transfer your Personal Data outside the EEA to another of our group companies, we may, as an alternative to the above three conditions, use Binding Corporate rules. For further details, see European Commission: Binding corporate rules.
We have a security program designed to keep the Personal Data stored in our systems protected from unauthorised access and misuse. Personal Data may only be accessed by persons within our organisation or Partners who are authorised to access personal data and to carry out the uses indicated in this Policy.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. We will do our best to protect your Personal Data and will comply with applicable data protection laws when doing so, but we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website and other Platforms via the internet; any transmission is at your own risk
Once we have received your Personal Data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Please note that communications over the internet, such as emails and webmails (messages sent through a website), are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered – this is the nature of the internet. Subject to and with affecting our obligations under applicable data protection laws, we cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of Personal Data through no fault of ours that is beyond our reasonable control. You are encouraged not to include any sensitive or Special Category data in your communications with us.
We will only keep your Personal Data for the purposes outlined in this Policy and when these purposes have expired, or are no longer relevant, or you have withdrawn your consent for us to use your Personal Data (and we have no other lawful basis to use such data), we will delete such data. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. In the meantime, we will continue to use your Personal Data to contact you in the manner set out in this Policy or otherwise for the purposes set out in this Policy. If you have any questions regarding data retention periods please contact us at [email protected]
