How Can You Keep Your Personal Information Safe and Secure? 

• Keep Your booking reference confidential. 

When You make a booking, You will be given a booking reference such as a PNR (Passenger Name Record) and/or a ticket number. This will appear on the email confirmation or ticket of each person in Your booking. You should keep Your booking reference confidential at all times. 
Giving Your booking reference to others may allow them to access Your booking details through Oursystem. If You are traveling with others and would not like Your individual booking details to be accessible by them, You may prefer to have each person make separate bookings, to be paid for individually. 

• Keep Your loyalty scheme details (i.e. Miles&Smiles number/Registered Customer log-in details or Jetgenç member information) confidential. 

To make sure Your access to the Online Channels is secure, We recommend that customers avoid communicating passwords to others. When You finish using the Online Channels and/or social media accounts (especially if these accounts are linked together) You should log out if others are able to access Your computer or device, and especially when using a public device to access the web. This way, other users will not be able to access Your personal data. 

• Be aware of and protect yourself against Internet fraud and “phishing.” 

There is an Internet fraud practice known as "phishing" which is the illegal gathering of personal information by deception. Unsolicited emails are sent to individuals from lists illegally gathered by a third party, and recipients are asked to enter or reconfirm bank or password details into a "cloned" or illegal copy web site. 

• For Your protection, please be aware of the following guidance: 

You will only be asked for Your card payment details if You wish to change or claim a refund of Yourbooking on the Online Channels. We require this information specifically in relation to Your booking. OurCustomer Relations team might ask for Your bank details if they are going to credit Your account directly, after You have raised a claim with Us.
