Privacy Policy

Privacy and security

Respecting your privacy and ensuring the confidentiality of your personal information is critical to us. Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, safeguard and use your data, and is designed to ensure that we interact with you in accordance with your wishes and in line with current data protection legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation of May 2018.

Please note that this statement does not extend to websites that are linked to this website. You should refer to the privacy policies of any such websites for further details about their use of your personal information.

What do we mean by "personal information?"

For us, "personal information" means information which identifies you, like your name or email address. Any information that does not identify you is "non-personal information."

If we store your personal information with information that is non-personal, we will consider the combination as personal information. If we remove all personal information from a set of data then the remaining data will be classed as non-personal information.

General Use Of Your Information

When does 1836 Tour receive your personal information?

We collect personal information about you when you provide it to us. We only collect personal data relevant to the type of transactions you make with 1836 Tour.

For example, when you register your interest in an 1836 Tour event, or you telephone, email or write to 1836 Tour, we may receive and retain personal information about you.

If you engage with our social media accounts, such as Facebook, we may receive personal information about you then too. If you use these networks, their privacy policies apply, and we encourage you to read them.

How will 1836 Tour use your personal data?

We will use your personal information for administrative reasons, such as to answer your correspondence, keep your records up to date or to implement your instructions (for example, to ensure you no longer receive marketing information if you tell us to stop sending it to you). We may also use your data for marketing purposes, if you have given us permission to do so. For example if you have left us a testimonial.

We will use your personal information for the following purposes:

For administrative reasons, including:

  • "service administration", which means that 1836 Tour may contact you for reasons related to the completion of commercial or other transactions you have entered into with us;
  • in relation to correspondence you have entered into with us whether by letter, email, social media or any other means, and to contact you about any content you provide;
  • for internal record keeping so as to keep a record of your relationship with us;
    to keep your data up to date;
  • to implement any instructions you give us to with regard to withdrawing consent to send marketing information;
  • to use IP addresses to identify the location of users, which allows us to block disruptive use and to establish the number of visits from different countries;
  • to analyse and improve the activities and content offered by the 1836 Tour website to provide you with the most user-friendly navigation experience.

If you have given us permission to do so, we may also use your contact details to provide you with information regarding our services. We will not do this unless you have given us additional, specific consent to use your data for this purpose.

Unless legally required to do so we will not provide your information to third parties without your consent.

How do we keep your data secure?

We take all necessary steps to ensure any information you provide to us online is safe, secure and managed correctly. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure of this data we have put in place suitable physical and electronic procedures.

The information you provide to us over the internet via this website is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

Any personal information stored on our servers is not publicly accessible. The data is secured and can only be accessed by authorised 1836 Tour staff on a "need to know" basis.

How long will 1836 Tour keep your personal information?

We will only hold your personal information on our systems for as long as we need to. Once your data is no longer required, or if you request that we do so, we will delete your information from our database.

We will treat any consent you give us to share marketing materials with you as lasting for 24 months. After 24 months has elapsed from the date upon which you granted consent, we will either ask you to re-grant us permission to contact you, or will remove your details from our database.

If you request that we stop sending you marketing materials we will keep a record of your contact details and appropriate information to enable us to comply with your request not to be contacted by us (this allows us to specifically exclude your data when we generate mailing lists or undertake other marketing activity).

You have the legal right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected.
