This Privacy Policy applies to any personal information collected and used by Red Patrol. For the purpose of this policy, ‘personal information’ means information which can identify a living individual.

If you do not provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with any of our services.

How we collect your personal information

 In order to provide the services you want, and to allow you to experience a more personalised service when you revisit us, we may ask about your personal details and interests. We find these out by asking you, by reading your customer feedback comments and by looking at the most popular areas of our site.

We will only collect personal information from you (such as name, address, telephone number, email address etc) which you have provided voluntarily to us either by completing registration or enquiry forms or sending emails to us. Please do not submit your personal data to us if you do not wish us to collect it.

We may obtain your information in the following ways:

  • Directly from you – If you give us your information directly when you buy our tour or when you ask us for any other offer for any other service/ tour we provide.
  • Indirectly – If we receive your information from another source and not directly from you (for example by someone buying our tour for you). You can always check the Privacy policy on our website.
  • When you visit our website – We use cookies on our website. You can always check the Cookies policy on our website.
  • When you access Red Patrol’s Social Media – We might also obtain your personal information through your use of social media such as Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, depending on your settings or the privacy policies of these social media and messaging services. To change your settings on these services, please refer to their privacy notices, which will tell you how to do this.

Examples of where we may collect your personal information include (without limitation):

  • If you order a brochure or newsletter we ask for your name, address and e-mail address. This is so we can effectively email you the newsletters you’ve subscribed to.
  • If you submit a tour enquiry we ask for your name, telephone number and e-mail address. This is so we can effectively return the requested information to you.
  • If you enter a contest or promotion we ask for your name, address and e-mail address. This is so we can run the contest effectively and let you know if you have won.
  • If you order any product or service from us we may ask for information including your name, e-mail address, delivery and billing address, credit or debit card number and expiry date. Sometimes we may ask for your telephone number to be forwarded to the tour guides, car drivers or couriers who may deliver your order. These details allow us to process your orders efficiently.
  • If you fill out our client information forms on arrival, we will ask you for your telephone number, email address, home address, nationality and profession.
  • If you submit feedback to us through our digital customer feedback forms, we will ask for your booking name and email address.

 In addition to asking you to submit personal information, we may collect information about you automatically when you visit the site. The collection of information may involve the use of cookies and web beacons.

  • A web beacon is a small graphic image placed on a web page that is designed to allow us to monitor visitors to our site.
  • A cookie is small text file that is placed on your computer’s hard drive by your web browser when you first visit our site. The cookie allows us to identify your computer and find out details about your last visit. Most internet browsers accept cookies automatically, but usually you can alter the settings of your browser to erase cookies or prevent automatic acceptance if you prefer. If you choose not to receive our cookies, we cannot guarantee that your experience with our website will be as quick or responsive as if you do receive cookies.

The information collected by cookies and web beacons is not personally identifiable, it includes general information about your computer settings, your connection to the internet e.g. operating system and platforms, IP address, your browsing patterns and timings of browsing on our website and your geographical location.

Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data to build up a picture of a person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects about that person’s economic situation, personal preferences or interests.

Who we share your information with

We will not transfer, sell, lease or assign any of the information described in this policy to third parties. The only situation when we may do so is as a result of a sale, merger, consolidation, change of control, transfer of assets or reorganisation of the company Gold Voyage SRL offering the Red Patrol tour.

Depending on why you provided us with your personal information and how we are using it, we may need to share your information with other organisations or individuals, such as those that provide services on our behalf (e.g. drivers, guides, accountants).

We may provide third parties, such as digital agency, online consultants and other suppliers, at our discretion, with certain aggregate statistical data about your use of our websites, which data may include demographic data such as age range and/or geographic location of groups of user. It will not include information that could personally identify you.

We reserve the right to access and to disclose personal information to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests or requests by applicable regulatory bodies, to operate our systems properly or to protect either ourselves or our other users.
