1. Who we are
We are Gashira Safari, a company registered in the UK. Our website address is: https://safariextra.com
2. Personal information we collect, how we use it and our lawful basis for processing
Giving you a memorable experience is what we aim for. To help us plan your next trip, we need to ask you for a bit of personal information. We value your privacy and keep your personal information safe.
2.1 Enquiries and bookings
2.2 If you book a trip with us
We will ask details about your trip arrangements. This may include will details of your passports, emergency contacts, travel insurance arrangements, preferences and special requirements, frequent flier club membership, visa requirements, flights (if you arrange your own flights). We would also request details of any other friends or family who are accompanying you as part of your booking.
We will use this information to help us organise your trip, make bookings on your behalf and ensure that you (and any other friends or family accompanying you) receive the products and services set out in your itinerary.
- We collect this information so we can provide a service to you as per our contractual agreement.
Where you are a regular customer we may retain some of this personal information so that we can use it when you next book with us as we have a legitimate interest to improve our customer journey and ensure we look after our regular customers.
1. How we share your personal information.
3.1 In order to make sure that we run our business efficiently, and to make sure that you get the service that you expect, we will need to share your personal information, from time to time, as necessary, with the following third parties:
(a) Selected trusted third party business partners, such as the local businesses we partner with in the locations our customers travel to.
(b) Prospective buyers of our business or assets, which may include your personal information.
(c) Any other third parties if necessary to comply with legal obligations or enforce agreements, for example, we are required to provide airlines with a passenger mobile phone number and email contact details under IATA Resolution 830d for the airline to inform the passenger of any operational difficulties.
(d) Any other third parties if this is necessary to protect our or your rights, property, or safety and/or those of others.
3.2 We do not share your personal information with third parties for them to use for the purposes of sending you marketing information or for those third parties to use your information for their own purposes.
4. Where we transfer your personal information
From time to time we may process (or ask or permit a third party to process) your personal information outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) where local laws may not provide legal protection for your information in the same way as is applicable in the EEA.
For example, when you book a trip, we will need to provide your information to local accommodation or service providers. In other cases, we may need to share your information with an overseas service provider such as our local partners who host you during your safari experience, the provider of a cruise or experience train journey.
Whenever we send (or permit a third party to send) your personal data outside of the EEA, we will make sure that we take steps necessary to protect your data as required by applicable laws. For example, we may require the overseas recipient to enter into particular contract terms, or we will make sure that the information that we give to them will be limited to what is needed to perform our contract with you.
If you wish to learn more about the safeguards in place to protect your personal information when we transfer it outside of the EEA, please contact us by emailing email@example.com
The personal data that we collect from you will also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff involved in, among other things, providing support services.
5. Security of your personal information
We take the security of your information very seriously and have put physical, technical, operational and administrative strategies, controls and measures in place to help protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure as required by law and in accordance with accepted good industry practice. We will always keep these under review to make sure that the measures we have implemented remain appropriate.
6. Retention of your personal information
We will keep your personal information for limited and appropriate periods of time only and the applicable retention periods will always be linked to our purposes for processing your personal information. This means that the retention periods will vary according to the type of personal information. For example, some transaction information will be kept for a number of years in order to comply with various finance and tax related obligations. If you need more information on this, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
