Data privacy is important to Bangladesh Unbound and we are committed to respecting your privacy.

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) contains important information about how we collect and use your data and the choices you can make about your data.

2. Personal Data Collected.

We collect personal data from you through our interactions with you and when you share it with us through, or in connection with, but not limited to, the Site, our services and surveys. For example, you may share your data when you sign up for our newsletter, submit an inquiry, book a tour, file a complaint or publish a review.

We may produce anonymous data from your data and other individuals’ data by making the data non-identifiable to any person. We may use that anonymous data for our business activity.

Also, you may share personal data from a third party. For example, you may provide the name, email address and telephone number of a tour participant or tour service provider. In those cases, you are responsible for getting authorization from those third parties to share their data with us and to give us permission to collect and process their data under this Privacy Policy.

Below, you may find a list of how we collect personal data from you and what we use that information for.

3. Where is Your Data Stored?

The personal data that we collect from you is stored in Bangladesh.

We employ administrative, technical, and physical security measures to prevent the loss, manipulation, and unauthorized access to your data. However, due to the nature of the online activity, it is impossible to ensure that it will be fully secure or error-free. While we strive to maintain high privacy standards, we cannot guarantee the full security of your personal information. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any personal data to us.

For example, when we share personal data among travellers, the guides and/or the travel agents deliver a booking and coordinate the tour.
