Your privacy is important to us. Cascada Expediciones and EcoCamp Patagonia’s Privacy Policy lets you know how we use your personal information: what types of personal information we collect, how we collect it, what we use it for and who we may share your personal information with. You can rest assured that we work very hard to keep your information safe and secure.

Privacy Policy
This policy outlines how personal data collected from you is processed and stored. Please take your time to read our Privacy Policy carefully so that you fully understand how your information is used. Cascada Expediciones and EcoCamp Patagonia is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

When we refer to ‘Personal data’, we mean information that relates to you which allows us to identify you, either directly or in combination with other information that we may hold. Your personal data may include details such as your name, contact details, information relating to your booking with us or information on how you use our website or interact with us.

We will endeavor to keep your information as up to date as possible, ensuring that it is current, accurate and complete.

WHEN DO WE COLLECT PERSONAL DATA ABOUT YOU?
We may collect personal information about you whenever you use our services, when you travel with us, when using our website, when contacting us directly by phone, email, through social media or when visiting our offices.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
When completing an online form such as our enquiry form or brochure request form or when contacting us directly to enquire about one of our tours, we record basic personal information such as your name, address, email address and a contact number.

When booking a holiday we will collect additional information including your previous experience, passport details, travel insurance, emergency contact details, information relating to dietary requirements and any medical conditions that we may need to be aware of.
When you sign up to receive email marketing communications from us we require your name and email address. You can manage your preferences to ensure that you only receive marketing emails related to content that you are interested in. Once signed up, you will be able to manage your own marketing preferences and are free to unsubscribe from our marketing emails at any time.

We ONLY collect personal details as a result of your direct interest in Cascada Expediciones. We DO NOT buy any third party lists from other suppliers or share your data with any third parties without your specific permission to do so.

WHAT DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR?
We use the information that we hold about you in the following ways:

To provide you with the information, products or services that you have requested.
To manage your travel booking and provide you with the relevant services associated with your booking.
To communicate with you and manage our relationship with you.
To personalize and improve your customer experience.
To provide you with interesting content, news, updates, promotions and offers where we have your permission to do so.

If you are unable to provide us with your personal information, then we will not be able to provide you with the services requested, including accepting your booking.

MARKETING EMAILS
You can subscribe to marketing emails via the 'Subscribe to our newsletter” button on our website or by opting in via one of our website forms. Your personal information is retained and used to provide you with relevant marketing communications, including newsletters, email shots and special promotions. These communications may be tailored to you based on your preferences and the information that we hold. We are careful not to send you marketing communications too frequently to ensure that they do not become an annoyance.

UPDATING YOUR MARKETING PREFERENCES
Each marketing communication that we send you has the option to ‘unsubscribe’ which will allow you to remove yourself from our mailing list. Alternatively you can contact us directly and we will remove your details.

IMAGES OF YOU ON OUR TOURS
From time-to-time, our clients, staff or suppliers may take photographs and/or videos of the holiday in progress which may include images of our clients. These images and/or videos may be used in future marketing materials and stored physically and digitally. If you do not wish you or your family to be photographed or filmed or for any photographs and films which may contain images of you or your family to be used in this manner, please advise us by letting the photographer know at the beginning of your trip and send an email to marketing@cascada.travel.

On the rare occasion that you or any of your family members are included in any images displayed on our website against your will, please contact us at marketing@cascada.travel and we will remove the images immediately.

LINKS ON OUR WEBSITE
Our site may contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy notices and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH?
In order to perform the contract that we have with you, we need to share personal information with our ground agents and other relevant suppliers such as distributors, airlines, hotels and transfer companies within Chile, Argentina or Bolivia. The information may also be provided to public authorities such as customs/immigration if required by them, or as required by law.

We will not pass any information onto any person who is not responsible for facilitating the performance of the contract.

HOW LONG WILL WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR?
We do not hold your information for longer than is necessary to facilitate our relationship with you as our client. For example, when you book a holiday with us we will keep the information related to your booking in order to fulfil your travel arrangements. After that, we will keep the information for a period which enables us to handle or respond to any complaints, queries or concerns relating to the booking. The information may also be retained so that we can continue to improve your experience with us and to enable us to set your loyalty membership status.

We will actively review the information we hold and delete it securely, or in some cases put it beyond use, when there is no longer a legal, business or customer need for your information to be retained.

If at any time you wish your personal information to be deleted from our database, please contact us at marketing@cascada.travel

HOW SECURE IS YOUR DATA?
We have taken all necessary steps to put in place the appropriate security measures to protect your information. When you book your holiday online, we use the latest secure server software (SSL) which encrypts your booking information and payment details on submission. For My account holders, where you have set your own password to enable you to access your account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. All online financial transactions between you and Cascada Expediciones are conducted through a secure financial portal. Cascada Expediciones does not record or store any payment details directly.

Social buttons
On many of the pages of the site you will see 'social buttons'. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet. So if you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information. In some cases these sites will be registering the fact that you are visiting our site and the specific page you are on, even if you don't click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Google and Facebook. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete such information.

External web services
We use a number of external web services mostly to display content within our web pages. As with the social buttons we cannot prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services then they will not know who you are but are likely to gather anonymous usage information e.g. number of views, plays, loads etc.
