The information we collect
Personal information is collected when you make a reservation request or purchase something from our website, as well as when you contact us about a purchase either by email, letter, fax or on the phone. We may also collect personal information from you from any online registrations including but not limited to subscriptions, newsletters, surveys or competitions etc.
When you visit our Web pages our Web server automatically recognizes your network domain name and we collect your domain name.
When you visit our Web pages you are free to remain anonymous. However, in order to communicate with us or order a product it is necessary for you to disclose personal information. We only collect the personal information which you disclose to us, such as when you place a booking or make a purchase online. If you do not provide your personal information we may be unable to fulfill your booking or purchase.
No other collections of personal information will occur without your consent.
Our Security and Storage Measures
We will endeavor to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information which we hold about you, and to keep this information accurate and up to date. We use industry-standard encryption protocols when transferring and receiving your personal information exchanged with our Web pages. When you transfer personal information to us we require that a ‘secure session’ first be established using Secure Socket Layer (SSL).
Your personal information is stored in secure operating environments that are not accessible by the general public. We have put security measures in place at our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information by our employees or other parties.
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. Tania Tours will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorized access to your personal information.
We may, from time to time, use ‘cookies’ to store your preferences, record session information and collect information on how you visit and access our Web pages. We collect information on the Web pages visited by our customers in order to help us to continue improving our services.
There are two types of cookies:
1. Session cookies
These are used to maintain something called session state. If you consider your journey through the website as a conversation with us, this cookie reminds the site where we are in that conversation (for instance, if at some point in the conversation you asked us to add a hotel to your basket, next time you click on the basket it will still be there). Session cookies are required for the website to function but are not used in any way to identify you personally.
- Permanent cookies
When you visit our website, we will assign a permanent cookie on the hard drive of your computer. You can view these by looking in the cookies directory of your browser installation. As the name implies, permanent cookies last for a long time and each time you visit our website you send us a copy of them allowing us to identify you from visit to visit. For instance, if you were looking at hotels in London last time you were on the website and the next time you visit us we have a great hotel deal, this cookie enables us to recognize your computer, so that we can show you that deal. The aim is to enhance your experience whilst on the website and make sure you don’t miss out on great offers. Cookies do not contain any Personal Information for example, your name, address, email address, or telephone number, but simply a unique identification number that identifies your computer to us. Tania Tours does not use permanent cookies. However, third parties on our website may use them.
Third party tracking devices

Please refer to the relevant Internet browser manufacturer’s website where you should be able to receive all the information you need.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings will typically be found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. In order to understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you should use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.
