Cookies and Other Tracking Methods
We track traffic patterns throughout the URL’s (web-sites) registered to Getaway Trekking. Getaway Trekking may use a feature of your browser called a ‘cookie’. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out your identity or the identities of any of our users – they only identify your computer to our servers when you visit our site.

Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on our site, to help you navigate a website as easily as possible.

We use industry-standard methods to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorised access. Among other techniques, we usually store such information on a computer behind our “firewall” in a secure location, and we restrict the number of employees internally who can access such data.

Amendments to this policy will be posted on this web-site and will be effective when posted.
