General Data Protection Regulation

General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR is a piece of legislation which has significantly changed the way in which data belonging to citizens of the European Union is protected.

From May 25th, 2018 any businesses operating inside AND outside the EU will have to maintain much stricter controls on the way in which they collect, record and store personally identifiable data of a European Citizen.

Although this is a European piece of legislation, it’s been specifically created to protect EU citizens regardless of where in the world they (or their data) may be, meaning businesses in all corners of the globe are affected.

What is personally identifiable data?

Any piece of data that relates to a specific person that can be used to directly or indirectly identify that person. Standard pieces of data like names, email addresses, phone number or identification numbers are all personal data; but other less obvious examples exist as well such as credit card numbers, IP addresses, place of education, employer etc.

Although this law only applies to European Citizens we have implemented the controls company wide and offer the same strict controls and privacy to all our clients irrespective of nationality therefore please take note of the following information.

Key Information

When you share any personal information with us, or any personal information is obtained for the sole purpose of assisting with works carried out by our company Downbelow Marine & Wildlife Adventures, we take measures to protect it. This may include, but are not limited to, encrypting data both locally and remotely and using software that fully complies with the GDPR Act 2018.

To reassure you further, we only ever share any part of any collected data, with our official travel partners for the sole purpose of your reservation via protected data transmission.

  • We only use your personal data for the purpose for which you provided it.
  • We will only share select data if we are required to do so by law. Otherwise, we will always ask for your consent.
  • You can always get in touch to ask us what personal data we hold and to correct and update your data if anything changes.
