Stephen Roche Cycling Holidays (“SRCH”, “we”, “our” and “us”) respect and protect your right to privacy in relation to your use of websites and services provided by us.
At SRCH, we collect personal information and non-personal information. The types of information we collect depend on the nature of your interaction with us. You may choose not to provide us with your personal information. However, if you make this choice we may not be able to provide you with the product, service, or information that you requested.
Personal information – Personal information is information that can identify an individual or information about an identifiable individual. We may collect personal information including the following:
– Contact information: your name, postal address, telephone number and email address;
– Personal preferences: opinions, language preferences, and marketing consent; and
– financial information and transaction information: products purchased, method of payment, amount paid, and credit or debit card number.
Non-personal information – Non-personal information does not identify you as an individual. For example, we may collect certain non-personal data when you visit our website, such as your Internet Protocol address, the type and version of browser you are using or the referring URL; or we may collect and summarise customer information in a non-personal, aggregate format for statistical and research purposes.
We collect information from you by two main means:
1. Information we collect from you directly;
2. Information we collect automatically.
When you request a quote, whether directly or indirectly, we may require you to provide us with the following information, which we will collect and store:
your age or birthday;
your first and last names;
your email address.
Website Tracking Information – Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. We may use web beacons (sometimes called “clear gifs”, “web bugs” or “pixel tags”) to compile tracking information reports regarding website user demographics, website traffic patterns, and website purchases. We may then provide these reports to advertisers and others. None of the tracking information in these reports can be connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users. In addition, we may use web beacons in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you do not want to receive these emails, please see the “unsubscribe” section below.
From time to time we may supplement information you give us with information from other sources, such as information validating your address or other available information you have provided to us. This is to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect and to help us provide better service.
The primary reason we collect personal information from you is to provide you with a better booking and cycling holiday experience. We will typically use this information for the following:
– To provide you with an accurate quote for your cycling holiday with us;
– To register you to partake in our services;
– To administer your booking and make any amendments;
– To prevent fraud or potentially illegal activities;
– To notify you of improvements and changes to services;
– To encourage input and feedback from you to improve our products and services;
– To collect fees; and
– To analyse trends and user traffic and gather statistical information.
We also use your personal information for other, secondary reasons, including:
– Customer service;
– To tailor our online content based on your preferences;
– To measure and improve the effectiveness of our marketing activities;
– To offer and promote additional products and services we offer;
– To administer a loyalty program, including but not limited to tracking and analysing your purchases and preferences to better understand your product and service needs and eligibility;
– To facilitate your acceptance of offers made by our third party marketing partners;
– As otherwise provided or required by law.
