PlanetSKI Privacy Policy

Last updated: 20 May 2018

This Privacy Policy explains what happens to any personal data that you provide to us.

  • The law on data protection is changing on 25th May 2018. We must comply with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) which come into force across the EU on that date. The government has confirmed that they will remain UK law even after we leave the EU.
  • Separately, the PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations) impose strict rules on how we are able to contact people electronically - by email, fax or text message. (These are in the process of being updated but it is not clear when this will happen).

Data Protection

As a rule, it is possible to use the PlanetSKI website without entering your personal data.

In so far as personal data (ie, name, or E-Mail addresses) is collected on our pages, then this is always done as far as possible on a voluntary basis.

Should you provide such data, it will not be passed on to third parties for marketing purposes without your explicit agreement.

We draw your attention to the fact that the transmission of data on the internet (ie, in the course of communication via e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Absolute protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

This Privacy Policy describes how PlanetSKI collects and uses information, and what choices you have with respect to the information.

PlanetSKI reserves the right to change this Policy without notice at any time.

If we make any changes to our Policy, we will post a new policy on our website and update the last updated date shown above.

The updated Policy will be effective immediately and will govern each use of the website from the date of update onwards.

Please do check back to review this Policy regularly.
