Who your data may be disclosed to
Ringweekends does not pass any personal data about you to any third parties. When you book with us, you will be required to disclose relevant personal data about yourself to Ringweekends or their agents, which may include data which is deemed "sensitive" under the Data Protection Act 1998. Your explicit consent to the processing of this data, which is required under the Data Protection Act 1998, will be requested at the time of purchase or booking as applicable. All information provided by yourself will only be used by Ringweekends, its agents and associated companies, some of which may be in other countries with different privacy laws. Ringweekends will take reasonable steps to ensure that your information is held securely.
How data is kept secure
When you book online with Ringweekends, your web browser may connect with the third party payment websites through SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) which ensures the security of your credit card details and other personal information. SSL is an industry-standard way to send personal information securely over the Internet. The use of SSL and digital certificates ensures you are actually sending data to our payment providers and not someone who claims to be collecting payment on Ringweekends behalf so you can be sure of purchasing in complete confidentiality and safety.
