Our Privacy Pledge
At White Rock Travel, we are dedicated to protecting your privacy and safeguarding your personal, business, and travel information. In fact, it is one of our highest priorities and remains the cornerstone of our commitment to you. We use vigorous security safeguards whether you provide information via the Internet, verbally or in writing and we adhere to Ten Privacy Principles to ensure your personal information is protected. What Information do we collect and how?
White Rock Travel gathers and uses personal information only to provide you with the travel services you have requested or to offer additional products and services we believe you might be interested in. Should you not longer wish to receive information on such promotions and services, kindly e-mail us at email@example.com. Providing us with your personal information is always your choice. Most of the information we collect comes to us directly from you, and only with your consent. When you purchase travel or make enquiries about tickets or other products and services, when you enter our contests or register for promotions or when you request brochures or other information, we will ask for your mailing address, e-mail, telephone number(s) and certain financial details necessary in order to process a booking transaction you have authorized.
When you visit the White Rock Travel web site, information is not collected that could identify you personally unless you choose to provide it voluntarily. You are welcome to browse our site anonymously and privately at any time without revealing personal information about yourself. All the information you provide to us is securely maintained and is kept strictly confidential. We do not allow any third parties access to our mailing lists.
At White Rock Travel, your piece of mind is our top priority and we therefore adhere to the 10 principles of privacy outlined in PIPEDA, Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. In addition, we adhere to the British Columbia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act Accountability.
White Rock Travel is responsible for maintaining and protecting the customer information under its control. In fulfilling this mandate, White Rock Travel has appointed Virginia Harrison accountable for the compliance to the company Privacy Pledge.

Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention
Customer information may only be used or disclosed by White Rock Travel for the purpose for which it was collected unless the customer has otherwise consented, or when it is required or permitted by law.

Under these circumstances other companies may receive your personal information but are legally bound to safeguard this information and not use if for any other purposes, although White Rock Travel is not responsible for ensuring this.

Customer information is maintained in as accurate, complete and up-to-date form as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is to be used.
