Last modified: 23rd May, 2023
Welcome to Catterfly..!
Catterfly offers online travel-related services through our own websites and mobile apps. This single privacy statement applies to any kind of customer information we collect through both of the above platforms or by any other means connected to these platforms (such as when you contact our team by email or other means).
Thanks for using our products and services (“Services”). The Services are provided by CatterFly GmbH. (“Catterfly”), located at Tobelrainli 10, 5416 Kirchdorf AG, Switzerland. By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Usage of Catterfly service: By using Catterfly services, you agree to comply with standard terms and conditions as laid out here without any misuse. For example, no interference with our Services (or electronic or any other means, which may have adverse business impact on our sales or operations), or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide offline (on request basis only). You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies, or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Ownership and IP Protection: Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don't remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Partnership Content: Our Services may display some content that is not directly owned by Catterfly. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that its our legal obligation to do so.
Communication with the user: In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications which are optional in nature, but we reserve the right to send any legal communication to your chosen means of communication to indemnify against any legal measures that must be taken to ensure ongoing operations and services of Catterfly.
Many of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.
Your CatterFly Account
You may need a Catterfly Account in order to use some of our Services. If you are using a CatterFly Account assigned to you, different or additional terms may apply and Catterfly reserves the right to able / disable your account as needed to provide continued services.
To protect your Catterfly Account, please keep your password confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Catterfly Account. Try not to reuse your Catterfly Account password on third-party applications. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or Catterfly Account, follow these instructions.
Personal Data Collected
Catterfly collects and uses information you provide to us. When you make a Trip Reservation, you are (at a minimum) asked for your name and email address or telephone number.
Depending on the Trip Reservation, we may also ask for your home address, payment information, date of birth, current location (in the case of on-demand services), the names of the people travelling with you and any preferences you might have for your Trip (such as dietary or accessibility requirements). In some cases we will ask you to share passport information or a driving licence and signatures.
There are other instances where you'll provide us with information, as well. For example, if you're browsing with your mobile device, you can decide to allow Catterfly to see your current location or grant us access to some contact details. This helps us to give you the best possible service and experience by, for example, showing you our city guides, suggesting the nearest restaurants or attractions to your location or making other recommendations.
If you create a user account, we'll also store your personal settings, uploaded photos, and reviews of previous bookings there. This saved data can be used to help you plan and manage future Trip Reservations or benefit from other features only available to account holders (such as incentives or other benefits).
You may also choose to share trip photos or reviews to our representatives by email or text, in which case Catterfly reserves the right to use such information on social media with your explicit consent.
Automatic Data collection
Whether or not you end up making a Trip Reservation, when you visit our websites or apps we automatically collect certain information. This includes your IP address, the date and time you accessed our services, and information about your computer's hardware and software (such as the operating system, the internet browser used, software/application version data and your language settings). We also collect information about clicks and which pages have been shown to you.
If you're using a mobile device, we collect data that identifies the device, as well as data about your device-specific settings and characteristics, app crashes and other system activity. When you make a Trip Reservation using this kind of device, our system registers how you made your reservation (on which website), and/or which site you came from when you entered the Catterfly website or app.
When you link your Catterfly user account to your social media account, you might trigger exchanges of data between Catterfly and that social media provider. You can always choose not to share that data.
Trip Providers may share information about you with Catterfly, too. This could happen if you have support questions about a pending Trip Reservation, or if disputes or other issues arise about a Trip Reservation.
Collection and Usage of Data:
We use the information collected about you for a variety of purposes. Your personal data may be used in the following ways:
Trip Reservations: We use your personal data to complete and administer your Trip Reservation including sending you communications that relate to your Trip Reservation, such as confirmations (including, where applicable, providing you with a proof of purchase and/or payment), modifications and reminders. In some cases, this may also include processing your personal data to enable online check-in with the Trip Provider or processing personal data in relation to possible damage deposits.

Based on your information, individualised offers might be shown or sent to you through authorised communication channels.
Any photos, videos or reviews you share with us might be used in our marketing materials or shared on our website or app with your explicit consent
Communicating with you: There might be other times when we get in touch, including by email, by chatbot, by post, by phone or by texting you. Which method we choose depends on the contact information you’ve previously shared. We process the communications you send to us. There could be a number of reasons for this, including:
Responding to and handling any requests you have made.
When you use our services, we might send you a questionnaire or invite you to provide a review about your experience with Catterfly or the Trip Provider.
We also send you other material related to your Trip Reservations, such as how to contact Catterfly if you need assistance while you’re away, and information that we feel might be useful to you in planning or getting the best out of your Trip. We might also send you material related to upcoming Trip Reservations or a summary of previous Trip Reservations you made through Catterfly.
Even if you don’t have an upcoming Trip Reservation, we may still need to send you other administrative messages
In case of misconduct, we may send you a notice and/or warning.
Market research: We sometimes invite our customers to take part in market research. Please see the information that accompanies this kind of invitation to understand what personal data will be collected and how that data is used.
Improving our services: We also use personal data for analytical purposes and product improvement. This is part of our commitment to making our services better and enhancing the user experience.
Customer reviews and other destination-related information: During and after your Trip, we might invite you to submit a review. By completing a review, you’re agreeing that it can be displayed on our websites, on our mobile apps, on our social media accounts and social media apps. This is to inform other travellers about the quality of the Trip Service you used, the destination you have chosen or any other experiences you choose to share.
Where needed under applicable law, Catterfly will obtain your consent prior to processing your personal data, including for email marketing purposes or as otherwise required by law.
If you wish to object to the processing set out previously in this document and no opt-out mechanism is available to you directly (for example, in your account settings), please contact us at email@example.com

We have integrated social media plugins into the Catterfly website and app. This means that when you click or tap on one of the buttons (such as Facebook’s ‘Like’ button), certain information is shared with these social media providers.

Depending on your settings, they might also display these actions on your social media profile, to be seen by others in your network.
We maintain social media accounts. Whenever you connect with Catterfly through social media, your social media service provider may allow you to share information with us. If you choose to share, your social media provider will generally inform you about which information will be shared.
