Data Protection and Your Privacy

Data Security: While the nature of the Internet is such that we cannot guarantee the security of the information you transmit to us via the Internet, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your information, to prevent unauthorised access or any loss of your information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity from you before we can discuss your account details or other queries.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone and (where you have chosen a password) to create a strong password that cannot be easily identified.

EuroParcs Holidays and all third parties where your information is shared will take full responsibility for ensuring that the most appropriate security measures are in place to protect your information.

EuroParcs Holidays will cease to use your information for marketing purposes 10 years from the point of last interaction (e.g. last email activity etc.,) or from the point you request EuroParcs Holidays to stop using your information for marketing purposes, whichever is sooner. At this point, your information is then minimised and only used for analysis.
