All customers are asked to complete a booking form upon making a booking through us. The booking form captures the necessary personal details we need such as names, contact details, and other essential information that is needed in order for us to book and conduct their tour. No credit card details are captured on the booking form. The signed booking form also doubles as an indemnity form, and is securely saved in the client’s folder on our secure cloud storage facility. No printed copies are made or kept. In the event that printed sensitive data has to be disposed of, such paperwork is destroyed by means of a shredder. All reasonable care is taken to ensure that no customer data or personal details are accidentally shared or compromised in any way.
