SECURITY

Data security is of great importance to Pandaw and to protect your data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure data collected online.

All our employees and data processors, who have access to, and are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your personal data. We ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed to state institutions and authorities except if required by law or other regulation.

We do not store credit card details nor do we share financial details with any 3rd parties.

No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. Pandaw web sites always use a secure connection to ensure all data transmitted is in an encrypted state. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you do so at your own risk.

COOKIES

A cookie is a very small text file placed on your computer by a web browser, which has been sent by a web server. It is essentially an "identification card" relating to you. The main purpose of our cookies is to identify you when you visit our website, how you came to our site, what you did whilst on our website and to make and manage bookings. Each time your browser requests a web page from our server, the browser sends the information in the text file back to the server and lets the server know that you have returned to that web page. We use cookies to provide you with a better service tailored to suit you.

If you do not accept incoming cookies then the performance of our website on your system will not be to full standard or our website may not serve at all.

We use Session, Persistent and Third party cookies. Session cookies are deleted shortly after closing your browser. Persistent and Third Party cookies are stored on your computer either until you delete them or they expire. If you return to the website after the cookie has expired, or been deleted, it will no longer send any information to our server. Further information types of cookies can be found at www.aboutcookies.org.

You may delete or block cookies using the settings in your internet browser. However you may lose any information that enables you to access the web site more quickly. For more information on deleting cookies visit www.aboutcookies.org.
