About the information we collect …
When you visit Eco Adventures the information we collect from our customers helps us to serve you better and to continually improve both our online and offline product and service offerings. We gather information in several ways including:
Customer provided information: When you reserve an Eco Adventures Tour, we ask for certain basic information required to make your purchase including your name, billing address, telephone number, email address, payment information, and related travel itinerary details to help us serve you better.
If you choose to pay online and with your credit card, a portion of this information is also supplied to the credit card company, together with your credit card number, for purposes of processing the transaction. Eco Adventures and its affiliates bear no responsibility for the transfer of information by unrelated third parties. This includes but is not limited to your credit card issuer and credit reporting authorities.
Automated electronic information: When you visit Eco Adventures online we keep track of customer purchases, traffic patterns and related site statistics inside our website to help us shape our online progress. Rest assured that the only information we collect from your web browser is solely based on your activities on our network of websites. We do not track your browsing habits as they reflect other sites on the Internet.
From time to time, we may randomly contact customers about participating in user surveys about our website(s). As we do not outsource any of these activities you will only be contacted by people directly affiliated with Eco Adventures and its immediate affiliates. These surveys are optional. The responses we gather help us make your online shopping experience even better.
What do we do with the information we collect.
Customer information is an important part of our business and we use it to help us provide better services for you. However, we are not in the business of selling your information. We only share our customer information with our direct subsidiary operations.
Your transactions are secure …
Just as we protect your personal information, we also go to great lengths to protect your financial information using state-of-the-art encryption technology to safeguard your online transactions. Your information, including your credit card details, is encrypted and cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.
A few notes about cookies …
Cookies you ask? Yes, cookies, but not the enjoyable edible ones. Cookies as they pertain to the internet are small pieces of information that our servers send through your web browser to your hard drive. A cookie lets our system recognize you and the current purchases you are making.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies automatically, but this setting can be changed in almost all cases. See your web browser’s “help section” to learn more about this setting. To help facilitate your online purchases your browser must be set to ‘accept’ cookies from our site (www.ecoadventuresbarbados.com).
Who has access to my information …
Unlike most online operations, we do not use outside companies to help facilitate our operations. Orders are accepted, processed and fulfilled in our own organization. We will only release your personal information to the proper persons when we believe, in good faith, that we are required to comply with a law or legal process, enforce our agreements, or protect the rights, property or safety of our operations or other persons or entities.
Postal / email addresses …
We are not in the business of selling your information. We only share our customer information to our direct subsidiary operations. You have control over how you are contacted from our company. We occasionally send new product announcements via postal mail or special offers to your email account. You’ll always have the option to request that your name be removed from our mailing lists. To have your information removed from our lists, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
