What information will I have to give you and why do you need it?

The personal information that we gather from you is: your name; postal address; telephone number; mobile number and email address. This is to ensure that we send products to the correct address by email and by post. On very rare occasions we may need to contact you to advise that a product has, for reasons beyond our control, been changed or altered in some way and we need to give you the option of choosing something else or continuing, if appropriate, with the existing product. If you have asked us to make a booking on your behalf with one of our trusted suppliers then the standard information we give them will be limited to the names of participants and a contact telephone number for any emergencies. Any other information they require will only be sent to them after we obtain your permission.  We will also ask for the name and email of the recipient (the person the voucher is intended for) This is to ensure the voucher can be personalised and to send the recipient. Under no circumstances will we contact the recipient before they have enjoyed their experience, so as not to spoil the surprise.

Where will you store my information and is it safe?
The personal information we gather from you is  stored using secure server encypted data storage system software (SSL). We strictly adhere to the UK Data Protection Legislation. In the interests of your security we may ask for proof of identity before we disclose any sensitive information to you.

What card payment information will you require and do you store this?
Most importantly Extremewest do not store any card information. When you make an online purchase you will be directed to our secure merchant bank website before you submit any card information. We use WorldPay who are a major global leader in secure online payments. They will ask you for your name, address and card details. Some card issuers may additionally ask for security details from you to ensure your card is not being used fraudulently. They will never ask for your full password. If you choose to make your payment over the telephone our customer services team will input your information directly into the Worldpay-Moto secure online payment system. Once again - none of this information is recorded by Extremewest and WorldPay will not disclose this information to Extremewest or any other 3rd parties once the transaction is complete.

Will you pass my information on to anybody?
Extremewest will not sell, rent, trade, lend, give away, advertise, broadcast or make public by any other means, to any 3rd parties, the personal information we gather from you. The only exception is on the occasion where you ask us to make a booking with our trusted suppliers on your behalf, as mentioned above.
