We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.

Information about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

We may be collecting and using information from you if you are from the European Economic Area (EEA), and in this section of our Privacy Policy, we are going to explain exactly how and why this data is collected and how we maintain this data under protection from being replicated or used in the wrong way.

What is GDPR?

GDPR is an EU-wide privacy and data protection law regulating how EU residents' data is protected by companies and enhancing the control of EU residents over their data.

The GDPR is relevant to any globally operating company, not just EU-based businesses and EU residents. Our customers' data is important irrespective of their location, so we have implemented GDPR controls as our baseline standard for all our operations worldwide.

What is personal data?

Any data that relates to an identifiable or identified individual GDPR covers a broad spectrum of information that could be used on its own or in combination with other pieces of information to identify a person. Personal data extends beyond a person's name or e-mail address. Some examples include financial information, political opinions, genetic data, biometric data, IP addresses, physical addresses, sexual orientation, and ethnicity.

The Data Protection Principles include requirements such as:

  • Personal data collected must be processed in a fair, legal, and transparent way and should only be used in a way that a person would reasonably expect.
  • Personal data should only be collected to fulfill a specific purpose, and it should only be used for that purpose. Organizations must specify why they need personal data when they collect it.
  • Personal data should be held no longer than necessary to fulfill its purpose.
  • People covered by the GDPR have the right to access their data. They can also request a copy of their data and that their data be updated, deleted, restricted, or moved to another organization.

Why is GDPR important?

GDPR adds new requirements regarding how companies should protect individuals' data that they collect and process. It also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing enforcement and imposing greater fines for violations. Beyond these facts, it's simply the right thing to do. At Egypt Tours Club, we strongly believe that your data privacy is critical, and we already have solid security and privacy practices that go beyond this new regulation's requirements.

Individual Data Subject's Rights: Data Access, Portability, and Deletion

We are committed to helping our customers meet the data subject rights requirements of GDPR. Egypt Tours Club processes or stores all personal data with fully vetted, DPA-compliant vendors. We store all conversation and personal data for up to 6 years unless your account is deleted. In this case, we will dispose of all data following our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, but we will not hold it for longer than 60 days.

We know that if you are working with EU customers, you need to provide them with the ability to access, update, retrieve, and remove personal data. We've got you! We've been set up for self-service and have always given you access to your and your customers' data. Our customer support team is here for you to answer any questions you might have about working with the API.
