7.1 The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), depending upon the destinations you travel to, for example if we have to provide personal data to immigration authorities or excursion operators in destination countries. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or one of our suppliers. This may involve sending your personal information between different countries, including outside the EEA where controls on data protection may not be as strong as within the EEA. By providing us with your information, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
7.2 We follow strict security procedures as to how your personal information is stored and used, and who sees it, to help stop any unauthorised person getting hold of it. All personal information you register on our Websites will be located behind a firewall. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data. So we cannot accept any liability for the loss, theft or misuse of the personal information which you have registered on our Websites if there is a security breach.
7.3 We will keep your information stored on our systems for as long as it takes to provide the services to you and for a limited period afterwards for legal and tax purposes. The third parties we engage to provide services on our behalf will keep your data stored on their systems for as long as is necessary to provide the services to you. We will not store your information for longer than is reasonably necessary or required by law.


8.1 Even if you have accepted the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes, you have the right to ask us to stop processing your personal data for such purposes. You can exercise this right at any time by contacting us at 01453 525 200 or
8.2 The Websites may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of advertisers and affiliates.

Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
8.3 You are entitled to receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and to transmit that data to another data controller. The types of data that can be provided are those set out at paragraph 3.1 above. You can exercise this right by contacting us at 01453 525 200 or


9.1 European Data Protection Legislation gives you the right to access information held about you. You are entitled to be told by us whether we or someone else on our behalf is processing your personal information; what personal information we hold; details of the purposes for the processing of your personal information; and details of any third party with whom your personal information has been shared. In the event that an access request is unfounded, excessive or especially repetitive, we may charge a ‘reasonable fee' for meeting that request. Similarly, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with requests for further copies of the same information (that fee will be based upon the administrative costs of providing the information). Sometimes you may be asked to provide proof of identity before we show you your personal information - that's so we can prevent unauthorised access. Your rights to access, rectify such information, object or cancel the information we hold about you can be exercised at any time by contacting us at 01453 525 200 or
