What can you do to keep your personal information secure?

Niceair makes every effort to protect your personal information. We encourage you to take steps to secure your personal information. Here are some measures that you can take to keep your information safe:

Do not share your booking reference with others

Whenever you book a flight, you will be provided with a booking reference. A booking reference will appear on the ticket or e-mail confirmation of each passenger in a booking. You should never share your booking reference with others, as it may allow other people to access the details of the booking.

If you are booking a flight for yourself as well as others and would not like them to see your booking details, we recommend that each passenger make separate bookings.

Be careful when online and avoid internet fraud

Dishonest individuals may try to gather your personal information by trying to deceive you online. This illegal activity is called “phishing”. Phishing is often performed by sending you an e-mail which has been designed to make you think that it has been sent by a legitimate business. However, such emails may often form part of a scam to trick you into disclosing details, such as your personal information, login credentials or bank information. Phishing emails will often contain links to fraudulent websites which imitate the look and feel of legitimate websites.

Changes and amendments to this policy

Niceair may make changes to this Privacy Policy so that it reflects how we process personal information from time to time. Niceair may place a notice on its website or communicate with you in other ways whenever the Privacy Policy is amended. You can review the latest version of our Privacy Policy on this site.

If you do not wish that we process your information under our Privacy Policy, you will have to discontinue using our services. Furthermore, you may make a request for access, rectification, restriction or deletion of your personal information.

What are your rights as our customer?

As our customer, you have a right to request access, rectification, restriction and deletion of your personal information held by us. Furthermore, you may receive a copy of your personal information.

As our customer, you also have rights to object to some of the processing. In cases where processing is based on your consent, you may withdraw it at any time. Please be aware that your rights as stated above may be limited. As an example, where we can demonstrate that there is a legal requirement to process your data, we may not be able to delete it.

Please be aware that if you request for your personal information to be deleted, such requests may affect your relationship with us as a customer.

How can I make a request for a copy or deletion of my personal information and how do I lodge a complaint?

Under European Union and Icelandic privacy law, you may request a copy of your personal information if it is processed by Niceair. You do not need to pay a fee for this request, unless it is manifestly unfounded or excessive. Niceair will make every effort to respond to your request within 30 days of it being received.

Your request must be in writing and must contain the following information:

-Your name, e-mail and postal address.

-Details of your request.

-Any details which may help us locate the information which is the subject of your request, for example:

-Booking reference or flight numbers and dates.
