We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors and users of the services we provide.
The policy sets out the different areas where user privacy is concerned and outlines the obligations and requirements of the users, the website and website owners. Furthermore, the way the website processes, stores and protects user data and information will also be detailed within this policy.
How we collect information, how it is used and who it may be shared with
We collect information from various areas of the website, and by email, post and telephone. Most personal information is gathered when users make an enquiry or book a service by submitting one of our online forms. The more information volunteered by the user (and the more accurate it is), the better we can meet their requirements.
We may also ask customers to complete surveys or provide feedback on services they have undertaken subsequent to using the website.
As a general rule, Prague Experience will not disclose your personally identifiable information to any third party organisation not directly connected with the reservation or enquiry process, except under special circumstances such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Your details will not be passed on to any third party marketing organisation.
When you provide personal information to Prague Experience in the course of making an enquiry or booking a service, you are sharing the information with Prague Experience, and where we are not the ultimate supplier of the service, with the supplier of the service, and where payment processing is required, with the financial and technology providers necessary to ensure smooth processing of the transaction.
If data is being collected and/or maintained by any organisation outside of this, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer.
