Privacy policy


This Privacy and Security Policy ("Policy") explains how your personal information will be treated by Ghale Treks ("we" "our" or "us"). We are firmly committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information and we maintain robust physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect personal information in our care. We reserve the right to amend this Policy at any time. Your continued use of our services or those on www.ghalegroup.com ("Website") following such modification will be conclusively deemed acceptance by you of any changes to this Policy. The term "Third Party" used in this Policy means any entity other than us.


Credit card safety:
We are confident that your credit card transaction will be secure on every online purchase. We want you to feel safe and secure booking your travel with us online. For this reason, we use a sophisticated technology to encrypt your credit card and other sensitive information when you make reservations for flights, hotels or rental cars. The process of encryption prevents unauthorized individuals from viewing your information as it is securely transmitted over the Internet. Once received, your credit card information is not transmitted over the Internet again. On the passenger information and payment pages, the address bar changes from http:// to https://, this assures you that your information is encrypted and secure. There are times that we will request that you fill out a credit card authorization form, usually if the billing address does not verify for credit card approval, or for International or 3rd party transactions.

Our guarantee:
Even with the very best protection policies and safeguard procedures in place, there is always the remote possibility of fraud. If you believe unauthorized use of your credit information has occurred, follow the reporting procedures defined by your credit card's issuing bank and contact us immediately.

You should obtain the consent of other individuals prior to providing us with their personal information and travel preferences.

Cookies save data about individual visitors, such as the visitor’s name, password, username, screen preferences, the pages of a site viewed by the visitor, and the advertisements viewed or clicked by the visitor. When the visitor revisits the Website, we may recognize the visitor by the cookie and customize the visitor’s experience accordingly. Visitors may decline cookies, if any, by using the appropriate feature of their web client software, if available; however, this may impair certain features of the Website.

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
