Privacy Policy

Dated: August 1st, 2019

FFX Adventures (“FFX,” “we” or “us”) takes the responsibility of protecting your privacy very seriously. For this reason, we have created this Privacy Policy to help you understand how we collect, use and protect the information we obtain through our website www.ffxadventures.com (“Site”). By visiting this website or using any of our services (“the Services”), you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. This policy may change from time to time so we recommend that you check it regularly. Your continued use of this website after the posting of any changes will constitute your acceptance of those changes.

The type of information we collect from you relates to your reservation or potential booking with us.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

We use your personal information for such purposes as to provide the services and products that you request from us, communicate with you, enhance your experience on our website, resolve issues, detect and safeguard us from fraud and illegal activity, and enforce our policies.

Information You Choose to Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us by phone, email or in any other way. On our website, you may purchase our products and services, including tours and vacation packages, request information, subscribe to our newsletter, read and post comments on our site, view our photos and videos, communicate with our representatives through live chat, and use any other services we provide.

We use a third-party booking system named Rezdy, which stores the travel details that you provide for yourself and others in your party on the Rezdy system. Your travel details consist of any information that you provide to book or reserve a Tour, including your personal information and financial information such as credit card information. Rezdy has its own privacy policy, which is available here. Your use of our Site is also governed by Rezdy’s privacy policy.

To take advantage of some of these offerings, it is necessary for you to disclose personal information (referred to as “personal information,” “personally identifiable information,” and “your information”) to us about yourself and others, including but not limited to one or more of the following identifying information: name, age, address, birthdate, telephone number, email address, credit card details, and billing information. We use the information you provide to respond to your requests, communicate with you, provide information about our company and services, provide information and promotional material from some of our third-party partners, and customize and improve our services. To make a reservation, you may be required to provide additional information about yourself and other persons listed on the reservation such as pertinent medical information and dietary restrictions.

To purchase our goods or services, you must submit financial information, including credit card or debit card information in addition to certain personal information, which we use to bill you for the purchased goods or services. We use a leading payment gateway called Stripe to process credit cards and electronic check payments for our customers. The information you provide to FFX and Stripe to process a payment will be used by FFX and Stripe for the purpose of verifying and authorizing your purchase. We at FFX do not store your entire credit card number if you book online using our payment processor Stripe Instead, to the extent we store your credit card information, we store the last digits of your credit card or debit card number and credit card type for reference. Any information you provide to us to book, reserve or purchase FFX Services is subject to Stripe privacy policy, which is available here.

If you provide a testimonial, we may post your testimonial along with your personal information on our website. We will obtain your consent by email before posting your testimonial. You may request the removal of your testimonial by contacting us as specified in the “contact us” section of the Privacy Policy.
