Pharos is committed to protecting your information that we will temporarily process, acting on behalf of our client who is the data controller. This statement explains why, how and what information we may need to use and temporarily store. If you are under 16, your parent/guardians are encouraged to read this statement. We encourage you to read our client’s privacy policy which applies to you through any contract, agreement or booking conditions that you accepted. In this, you will have consented to our client sharing your information with us in specific incident situations that are in your vital interests.
