The following is a statement of our data protection policy:

Silk Road Adventures Ltd needs to gather and use certain information about individuals.

These can include customers, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organisation has a relationship with or may need to contact.

Silk Road Adventures Ltd

  • Complies with data protection law and follows good practice
  • Protects the rights of staff, customers and partners
  • Is open about how it stores and processes individuals’ data
  • Protects itself from the risks of a data breach

The Data Protection Act 1998 describes how organisations — including Silk Road Adventures Ltd — must collect, handle and store personal information.

These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper or on other materials.

To comply with the law, personal information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed unlawfully.

The Data Protection Act is underpinned by eight important principles. These say that personal data must:

  1. Be processed fairly and lawfully
  2. Be obtained only for specific, lawful purposes
  3. Be adequate, relevant and not excessive
  4. Be accurate and kept up to date
  5. Not be held for any longer than necessary
  6. Processed in accordance with the rights of data subjects
  7. Be protected in appropriate ways
  8. Not be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), unless that country or territory also ensures an adequate level of protection

Silk Road Adventures Ltd undertakes to ensure that all eight principles are core to its business practice, and to prevent by all necessary efforts the unlawful use of personal data.

Data stored for the use of any adventure holiday or event are handled in accordance with these principles.

We also follow the legislation on GDPR,  an EU law that came into force on 25/05/2018 and covers data protection for anyone communicating with EU citizens.
