Our Security and Storage Measures
At GuidedToursIsrael we are committed to maintaining the integrity and security of your personal information. We use industry-standard encryption protocols when receiving and transferring your personal information. In fact, when you send personal information to us over the Internet, we first require that a "secure session" be established using Secure Socket Layer (SSL). However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot give an absolute assurance that the information you provide to us will be secure at all times. GuidedToursIsrael will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorized access to your personal information. GuidedToursIsrael will rely on you telling us if you experience any unusual events that may indicate a breach in your information security. We will then investigate whether the security breach was related to the data transmissions from or to GuidedToursIsrael and let you know what steps can be taken and have been taken to rectify the problem. Further action, such as reporting incidents to the police or other proper authorities, may also be required. Please note: we do not store your financial details. In the case that we obtain your financial details over the phone, we do NOT keep these details for future reference in any way. All financial information is physically shredded through a Fellowes SB-89C shredding machine.
