EGO Airways' liability is further governed by these General Terms and Conditions of Carriage.
15.2. EGO Airways' liability for death or other physical injury suffered by the Passenger shall not be subject to financial limits. EGO Airways is subject to strict liability up to the amount of 128,821 SDRs. EGO Airways is not liable for damages exceeding 128,821 SDRs if it proves that the damage was not due to the negligence, wrongful act or omission of EGO Airways or its employees or agents or that the damage was solely due to the negligence, wrongful act or omission of a third party.
15.3. The Carrier, if required by its national legislation, shall without delay, and in any event no later than fifteen (15) days after the identity of the natural person entitled to compensation has been established, make the advance payment as may be required to meet immediate economic needs on a basis proportional to the hardship suffered. In the event of death, the advance payment shall not be less than 16,000 SDRs per Passenger. An advance payment shall not constitute recognition of liability and may be offset against any subsequent agreement. Advance payments shall not be returnable unless:

In the event of the destruction, loss, damage or delay in carriage of the Registered Baggage, EGO Airways' liability is limited to 1,288 SDRs (or equivalent) per Passenger, unless the Passenger has made, at the time when the Registered Baggage was handed over to the Carrier, a special declaration of interest and has paid an additional fee. EGO Airways may refuse to accept the special declaration of interest of the Registered Baggage, in the event that part of the carriage is performed by another Carrier that does not offer a similar option.

15.11. Nothing in these General Terms and Conditions of Carriage shall waive any exclusion or limitation of the airline’s liability under the Convention or applicable laws, unless otherwise expressly stated.
15.12. Pursuant to Article 19 of the Convention, if the Passenger or its Registered Baggage suffer a delay in the carriage by air, EGO Airways shall not be liable for damage occasioned by a delay if it proves that the airline and its servants and agents took all measures that could reasonably be required to avoid such damage or that it was impossible for the airline or them to take such measures.

EGO Airways offers connecting flights only for single connections (e.g., from point A to point C, with a connecting flight at B). These flights are referred to as connecting flights within the booking. Therefore, EGO Airways does not offer, nor it facilitates the transfer of Passengers or their Baggage to other flights, whether operated by EGO Airways or other Carriers, unless Passengers have booked a connecting flight.
18. FORMS OF PAYMENT
18.1. Due to the high security and administration costs, EGO Airways cannot accept cash payments for tickets, taxes, or costs associated with the carriage of excess Baggage and sport equipment. Some airports may have local agreements for accepting cash and are often able to accept major debit cards issued in their respective countries. Passengers wishing to use these forms of payment at the airport to pay for these services should contact the airport in advance to check if the airport accepts cash and/or debit cards.<
18.2. Passengers who pay for their flights in a currency other than the currency of the flight departure country will be charged in the currency of the issuing country of the payment instrument used, as well as a currency commission. Passengers can check the actual amount to be paid before making the payment.

These data are collected, processed and used, mainly through automated systems, exclusively for the aforementioned purposes and may be shared by EGO Airways with its authorized agents, as external "managers" of the processing pursuant to art. 29 of the GDPR, as well as, in the case of code share agreements with other Carriers, with the latter as independent data controllers. Furthermore, EGO Airways may transmit the Passenger's personal data to the competent authorities and/or government agencies, both national and foreign, if they request it in accordance with the applicable rules and the transmission is therefore necessary for the execution of the airplane transport’s service.
19.4. For the purposes of carrying out the air transport service and any ancillary services, "sensitive data" may also be processed pursuant to the GDPR. These data may be processed in cases where the Passenger has requested, for example, specific medical assistance from EGO Airways and/or an airport operator, or has otherwise chosen to provide such information (for example through the travel agent who made the booking).
19.5. By providing personal information that is or could be considered "sensitive data", the Passenger authorises EGO Airways to collect, process, use, share with third parties and transfer, including outside the European Economic Area (EEA), such personal information.
19.6. In relation to health emergencies, pursuant to sector regulations, EGO Airways may be required to request and process certain personal data in order to combat and contain the spread of epidemics or similar phenomena. The data collected and processed in this context will not be disclosed to third parties but may be disclosed to the competent health and public security authorities. The data controller of such data will be EGO Airways S.p.A., with registered office in Piazzale Libia 2, 20135 Milan, which will keep the data collected for a period of time not exceeding what is necessary to achieve the purposes for which they are collected and treated.
19.7. In the event that the Passenger does not authorise or withdraw its consent to the processing of data, EGO Airways may not be able to provide, in whole or in part, the services requested by the Passenger.
