Canal and River Cruises Ltd use the personal information that we collect to provide you with the services you have ordered and assist in processing any enquiries that you make through this website or by phone or email. Our main communication channel is through email which will be used to provide details of our services, payment requests, booking status updates and useful information directly related to the services you have booked. You may receive automated payment requests where due in order to keep your account in order.

We do not store payment card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties, nor do we run any form of mailing lists.

What personal data do we store?
Your name, phone number, email are required in order to make a booking for one of our services. We usually also collect your address which is only used in the preparation of your invoice/receipt and is optional.

How do we obtain this information?
When you book online, the data you provide is held electronically by our outsourced reservation system. If you book by phone we manually create your online reservation record. Booking online gives you the option to have your personal data retained for future reference such as making a new reservation. If you choose not to store your data we will mark your record to be deleted automatically but this will of course mean we can no longer enter into correspondence with you.

Who has access to this information?

These companies may collect your personal information for the purpose of processing card payments and will not use this information for any other purpose. Data security in this highly sensitive area is controlled not just by the GDPR but also PCIDSS standards which are very rigorous. We do not ever collect your or store your card details, nor do we have access to this information. We do however receive notification of payment attempts which we will use to process your reservation.

Your data is not held electronically elsewhere.

You are entitled to a copy of your information held by us. If you would like to see this please contact us.

You are entitled to ask us to make corrections to any personal data which we hold.
