About the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Update.
The GDPR is Europe’s new privacy regulation. It gives you control over the data that organizations have about you and how they market to you.
We takes this very seriously. We already apply strict policies and practices to protect all of our customers’ personal data, including those promoted by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, E.U. Model Clause Principles and the APEC Privacy Principles. Many of those international standards will continue under the GDPR.
We will not rent or sell or share your email with any third party. However, when you submit a query about one of our experiences, your prospective guide, who is named on the experience page, as well as the site owner, each receive a copy of this request. This is in order to better serve you. The information is limited to your name, email address and phone number should you elect to provide it.
We currently make use of third party analytics software from Google, Facebook. Should we add others we will update this list. In some cases, we may place a cookie on your side to enable us to better understand who is visiting the site and how its pages are being used in order to improve the users’ experience.
We don’t serve ads to our site visitors using any third-party tools. When we run ads on Facebook, we may use audience data to serve you and people like you ads based on your visits to our sites. Facebook’s Data Policy provides much more information on how your Facebook data is used on their platform.
At any time, you can opt out of hearing from us. You can always opt out of the collection and use of your information online. Here are two resources to help you: YourAdChoices or Your Online Choices
We will never inundate you with emails. The most frequently we will ever email you will be once a day if we are promoting a special campaign. We will limit that to 4 consecutive days at most, and will only do this twice per year. We will always be conscientious about the quality and value to you of this content, and promotions will always give back to humanitarian organizations that we support.
What does GDPR mean for you?
We’re treating everyone who interacts with our site as if they lived in the EU. This means that if you’re reading this, you can:
1. Ask for a copy of the personal data we’ve collected about you. If you have just asked for information, we have only your email address and phone number if you elected to provide it. If have registered for/ attended one of our events, the relevant guide will only collect such information that is required to provide you with that service. Again, we cannot overstate that this information will never be accessed by any other party.
All credit card processing is done with Paypal and we never see your private information
Request that we stop sending you direct marketing messages. Every email will have an unsubscribe button.
We will update this page from time to time.
