5. Our legal basis for collecting, holding and using your information

Data protection law sets the lawful legal bases (or ‘conditions’) which allow us to collect, hold and use your personal information. For Apollo these are:

  • For the purposes of our own legitimate interests. We believe that we have a legitimate interest in being able to provide our services to our customers and suppliers. As set out in this notice, this sometimes requires us to collect and use personal information about individuals. We only use this legal basis where these interests are not overridden by your interests and fundamental rights or and freedoms.
  • Where we have entered into a contract with you. In these circumstances, we may need to process your personal information in order to fulfil the contract. For example, this may apply if you purchase a flight from us as we need to ensure the safety of our passengers.
  • Where we are under a legal obligation to process personal information. For instance, we are required to collect certain information in accordance with our obligations under equalities legislation.

We will generally keep personal information about you no longer than is needed for us to carry out the functions described in section 2 of this notice.

We will keep personal information held as part of our accounts records, however, we will only keep this in line with legal requirements.
