Transferring Personal Information Globally


Globehunters is a global business, which means your personal information may be transferred and stored in the countries which may be outside your country of residence. Some of these countries are subject to different standards of data protection than your country of residence. We will take appropriate steps to ensure that transfers of personal information are in accordance with applicable law, in connection with facilitation of your travel booking and/or to enable the performance of administrative, advisory and technical services.

In providing our services to you, it may be necessary for us to disclose personal information to relevant overseas travel service providers. We deal with many different travel service providers all over the world, so the location of a travel service provider relevant to your personal information will depend on the travel services being provided.

Security of Information


In order to keep your personal data secure, we have implemented a number of technical and organizational security measures. The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who works for us or for one of our suppliers. We have implemented and maintain appropriate technical and organisational security measures, policies and procedures designed to protect the personal information that you share with us and safeguard the privacy, such as, by placing confidentiality requirements on our staff members and service providers; destroying or permanently anonymising personal information if it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected; and following security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal information to prevent unauthorised access to it. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Globehunters is not responsible for any third party’s actions or their security controls with respect to information that third parties may collect or process via their websites, services or otherwise.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL ("secure sockets layer") or TLS (“transport layer security”) technology. SSL and TLS are industry standard encryption protocols used to protect online transaction channels.
