At Rotorua Rafting,  we aim to make your shopping experience safe, convenient and worry-free. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, unauthorised access, unauthorised use, unauthorised modification and other misuse as is reasonable in the circumstances to take.

This fully encrypts and protects all of the information that you send to us over the internet (such as name, address, credit card number etc). This information can only be read by authorised Rotorua Rafting Limited personnel, who will only use the information for the purpose of processing your order. We will never display your full credit card number once it has been processed through our secure server.

We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardise the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case, where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.  To request access or a correction to your personal information please email sam@rotorua-rafting.co.nz
