When you provide, or otherwise allow us to collect, your personal information, you consent to your personal information being disclosed to relevant related overseas entities and third-party overseas recipients as set out below.
In providing our services to you, it may be necessary for us to disclose personal information to relevant overseas entities.

Where we disclose your personal information to a third party overseas recipient, your personal information will generally be received in the country in which the recipient will provide the services to you or in which their business is based. Unless otherwise contemplated herein or otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, we will only disclose your personal information to these overseas recipients in connection with the facilitation of your travel booking and/or to enable the performance of administrative and technical services by them on our behalf.
By using our products and services, you agree that we will not be required to ensure that third-party overseas recipients comply with Ugandan privacy laws or otherwise be liable or accountable for how the recipient handles your personal information.
