Data Protection Policy
The Oxfordshire Cotswolds is strongly committed to preserving the privacy of its customers. This Data Protection and Security Policy lets you know about our policy for the collection and use of information about you and your transactions with us.
We don't share your information with other companies without your prior permission. Email - we will only send you emails if you specifically give us your consent to do so. As a Certified Merchant, you can guarantee your credit card details are completely secure.
If you register to use the password protected portions of the Site, we will ask you to provide us with certain uptodate data about yourself which we will handle in accordance with the United Kingdom's Data Protection legislation. We maintain strict security standards and procedures with a view to preventing unauthorised access to your data by anyone, including our staff. We use leading technologies such as (but not limited to) data encryption, fire walls and server authentication to protect the security of your data. All our staff are required to observe our privacy standards.
When you book accommodation, our order form asks you to give us information specific to that order, including your billing address, shipping address, credit card information and email address. The information that you provide is used to process your order. We also use the information to contact you if there is a problem. We do not make our customer list available to other companies.
All of our transactions automatically take place on a secure server. All of your personal information is encrypted before it is transmitted over the Internet. None of our customers have ever reported fraudulent use of a credit card as a result of purchases made at www.oxfordshirecotswolds.org
Note: Most banks either cover all the charges that result from unauthorized use of your credit card or limit your liability to £50, the maximum liability allowed under the Fair Credit Billing Act. You must notify your credit card provider of the unauthorized use in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
If you have questions about any of these policies, please contact us.
