Extraordinary tours by the Award-Winning Tour Specialist
Wendy Wu Tours is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information. We manage your personal information in an open and transparent way.
Wendy Wu Tours will only use your personal information when it is necessary for us to deliver you a service or perform other necessary business functions and activities.
Wendy Wu Tours will not use or disclose your personal information for purposes unrelated to the services we provide, unless we first obtain your consent.
Where we can, we will allow you to deal with us anonymously or by using a pseudonym. However, in some circumstances, this may not be possible, and Wendy Wu Tours may need to collect personal information from you to provide you with a delivery or other service. In some cases, if you do not provide the required personal information we will not be able to provide you with a service.
Wendy Wu Tours is bound by privacy laws which regulate how we may collect, use, disclose and store personal information. These laws also specify how individuals may access and correct personal information held about them.
“Personal Information” means information or an opinion about an identified individual (or an individual who is reasonably identifiable), whether true or not, or recorded in a material form or not. For example, these types of information could include your name, contact details, age and other information.
In this policy ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ and ‘Wendy Wu Tours’ refers to Wendy Wu Tours Pty Ltd (ABN 87 082 688 202).
Wendy Wu Tours will only collect personal information about you by lawful and fair means, and not in an unreasonably intrusive manner.
It is Wendy Wu Tours’ usual practice to collect personal information about you (and possibly about your family) directly from you when you:
In some circumstances, it may be necessary for us to collect personal information about you from a third party. This includes where a person makes a travel booking on your behalf (e.g. a family or group booking). Where this occurs, we will assume you have consented to your personal information being collected by us and to us handling it in accordance with this Policy. If you provide us with information about other people travelling with you (for example, family members), you should make them aware of this Policy and any privacy collection notices we provide you.
You should let us know immediately if you become aware that your personal information has been provided to us by another person without your consent.
Wendy Wu Tours only collects personal information for purposes that are directly related to our business activities, and only when it is necessary for or directly related to such purposes. We also collect personal information related to employment services, human resource management, and other corporate service functions.
If we receive information about you from a third party, and it is not information we need in respect of our business activities, we will destroy or de-identify that information (provided it is lawful to do so).
Any personal information that you provide to us is collected and managed by Wendy Wu Tours.
The types of personal information Wendy Wu Tours may collect includes (but is not limited to) your:

We will only collect sensitive information about you with your consent and where reasonably necessary for, or directly related to, one or more of our functions or activities (e.g. to make travel arrangements on your behalf). Where you provide sensitive information to us, you consent to us using that sensitive information for the purpose for which it was collected. For example, if you provide health information to us in connection with a travel insurance application you would like to make, you consent to us using and disclosing that health information in connection with arranging that travel insurance on your behalf.
We use your personal information for a variety of reasons including to:

If this occurs, we take steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that the overseas recipient does not breach the relevant privacy laws in relation to that information. We may send your personal information to our overseas partners by e-mail to facilitate travel arrangements. For example, we may send your information to our partners (such as hotels) to book other services e.g. trains, flights etc.
We may share personal information with our overseas businesses located in the United Kingdom, the United States and New Zealand and South Africa. We also send personal information to our operators to facilitate bookings.

However, if you have any specific questions about where or to whom your personal information will be sent, please contact us via email to email@example.com.
Sometimes we use third party platforms to deliver information. These are sites hosted and managed by organisations other than ourselves, and some of these sites are hosted overseas. Wendy Wu Tours’ e-mail marketing platform is maintained in the United States.

This includes a range of systems and communication security measures, as well as the secure storage of any hard copy documents. In addition, access to your personal information will be restricted to those properly authorised to have access.
We keep your personal information for as long as it is required to provide you with the products you requested from us and to comply with legal requirements. If we no longer require your personal information for any purpose, including legal purposes, we will take reasonable steps to securely destroy or de-identify your personal information.

To do so, we have developed a complaints handling procedure that will be followed by our staff:
In order to ensure that we properly understand your complaint, we will require you to provide this to us in writing with as much relevant information as possible. This will be recorded and will be passed on to an appropriate person for action.
We endeavour to provide detail as to the steps taken to investigate your complaint and will suggest an appropriate time frame for when fair and reasonable remedies will be advised in order to resolve the situation. This is a process that can take time, as there are various parties that we may need to liaise with.
We demonstrate our commitment to complaints handling by publishing this policy so that consumers are aware of our approach and also by making a copy of this policy available to consumers, staff and any other interested parties upon request. If you require further explanation of this policy, we will be pleased to do so upon request.
To assist us with our goal of continuous improvement, we will keep a record of all complaints made and the outcome. This will allow us to appropriately deal with any systemic or recurring problems that may occur within our company.
