We represent the tour operator Boutique Tours, trading under the name of Boutique Travel Experts.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We do not collect any personal data of the visitors of our website.

We only collect the data once a visitor becomes a customer and books a holiday with us. This will be done with their explicit permission. The kind of data we will collect will be their names, date of birth and at time their nationality. This data is often necessary in order to finalise the booking and clarify all the customs requirements in the country they will travel to. If necessary we will also collect the data about their mobility necessities, which will only be beneficial to the person involved as we will tailor better personalised services to him/her.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymity string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.
After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

When submitting a contact form to us the data inserted will be kept on file indefinitely in order to avoid spam. We will never use the information submitted through a contact form for marketing purposes without your consent. We will explicitly ask you if you would want to receive our newsletter. If so, the newsletter is not going to be more often than twice per month and will include information about new tours, new deals and useful information for travellers.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
