Our Commitment To Your Privacy
By continuing to use this site, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to this Policy.
Your Personal Information
We collect personal information that identifies you as an individual, which can include (but is not limited to) your name, country of residence, phone number, and email address. After you’ve confirmed a customized itinerary with us, personal information can also include your passport information page (full legal name, passport number, expiration date, photo, etc.) as well as emergency contact information.
How Salkantay Trekking Collects Personal Information
We generally collect your information via a form on our website or during the process of booking a trip – we will always aim to collect information by lawful and fair means and, whenever appropriate, with the knowledge and consent of the individual(s) concerned. Our website also places cookies to provide you with a better browsing experience, and so we can better understand what kind of travel floats your boat.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Our Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page.
What makes these trips different?
We believe that a vacation should be more than a hotel room, a flight and a rental car. It should be more than the sum of its parts. We also believe a challenge can help you grow and a trip can stir the soul. We create journeys worth taking - for the traveler, for the host and for the world.
