BookaFriend is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We take several precautions to safeguard against loss, misuse and theft of information.
When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or Paypal address) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). This keeps your information safe while it is transferred over the internet. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. You are advised not to share sensitive data publicly. If you have any questions about security on our Site and Application, you can contact us.
In the event of any breach of security BookaFriend will make any legally required disclosures concerning the breach and the confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored "personal data" to you via email or via a posting on the Site and Application without unreasonable delay in as far as it is consistent with any legitimate needs of law enforcement and any measures required to determine the scope of the breach and to safeguard the integrity of data.
