Your privacy is very important to us. We act in your interest and we are committed to protecting and safeguarding any personal data you give us.
1) What type of personal data does Bookyourhunt.com collect?
In order to provide our services and help you to find and book a Hunting trip there are certain pieces of information we ask for – your name, email address, your telephone number, other contact details, etc. You can also decide to provide additional details or submit special requests (e.g. certain preferences). In addition to this, we also collect information from your computer, tablet, mobile phone or other device you're using to access our services. This can include the IP address, the browser, and your language settings.
This is a basic overview of the information we collect, please find a lot more detail below.
Information you give to us
We collect and use information that you provide us. When you book a Hunting trip, you are asked for your name, email address and telephone number as a minimum. Depending on the type of Hunting trip, we might also ask for your home address, date of birth, hunting license, your preferences (e.g. meal preferences) you have for your Hunting trip and other information.
If you need to get in touch with our customer support desk or reach out to us through other means (e.g. communicating with an Outfitter using Bookyourhunt.com’s chat), we'll collect information from you there, too. You can also be asked to provide a review to help ensure future hunters get exactly what they’re looking for.
There are also other situations where you’ll provide us with information. For example, you can decide to enable Bookyourhunt.com to see your current location – this enables us to show you the nearest hunting trips to your location. You can also open a user account, which allows you to save your personal settings, upload photos, make smart subscriptions or use other features available to account holders.
Information you give us about others
You might not just be making a Hunting trip reservation for yourself. You might be planning a Hunting trip with other hunters whose details you provide as part of the Hunting trip reservation, or you might make a Hunting trip reservation on behalf of someone else.
Information we collect automatically
Even if you don’t end up making a Hunting trip reservation, when you visit Bookyourhunt.com website or app we automatically collect certain information. This includes your IP address, the date and time you accessed our services, the hardware, software or internet browser you use, and information about your computer or mobile device’s operating system, settings and characteristics, like application versions and language settings. We also collect information about clicks and which pages have been shown to you.
When you make a reservation, our system registers through which means and from which websites you made your reservation or entered the Bookyourhunt.com website and/or app.
Information we receive from third parties
We might also receive information about you from other sources. First of all, these include our affiliate partners. Our services are not only made available through Bookyourhunt.com, but are also integrated into services of our affiliate partners you can find online. When you use some of these, you provide the reservation details to our affiliate partner, who then forward your details to us.
Another example is when Outfitters may share information about you with Bookyourhunt.com too – this may happen if you have any questions about our services or when, for example, disputes arise about a Hunting trip reservation.
2) Why does Bookyourhunt.com collect and use your personal data?
The main reason we ask you for personal details is to provide access to world-class hunting trips and ensure you get the best service and customer experience possible. Your personal information might be used in the following ways:
- Hunting trip reservations: First and foremost, we use your personal data to book Hunting trips and complete Hunting trip reservation process, which is essential to what we do as a company.
- Customer service: Sharing your personal details, such as your name, contact details or Hunting trip reservation details with our customer service staff allows us to respond when you need us – including helping you find an appropriate Outfitter or responding to any questions you might have.
- User account: Bookyourhunt.com users can create a user account. We use the information you give us to manage this account, allowing you to manage your Hunting trip reservations, create smart subscriptions, post reviews, take advantage of special offers and manage your personal settings.
- Marketing activities: For example, we might use your contact information to send you our news or special offers which we believe may be of interest to you when you make a reservation with us or set up a user account. You can unsubscribe from these marketing communications quickly, easily and anytime – just click on the "Unsubscribe" link included in every newsletter.
- Communicating with you: There may be other times when we get in touch with you. For example, we might contact you responding to and handling any requests you have made. If you haven't finalized a Hunting trip reservation online, we can contact you with a reminder to continue with your reservation. In addition, we might send you a questionnaire or invite you to provide a review about your experience with Bookyourhunt.com or the Outfitter.
- Market research: We sometimes ask our customers to take part in market research. When you're invited to participate, review the information provided to better understand what personal data is collected and how it used.
- Improving our services: We also use personal data for analytical purposes to improve our services and enhance the user experience, but can also be used for testing purposes, and improving the functionality and quality of our online services.
- Hunter reviews: After the Hunting trip you might be invited to submit a review to inform other hunters about the quality of the Hunting trip and/or Outfitter. We can also enable hunters traveling with you or on whose behalf you have booked to provide a review. By completing a hunter review, you are agreeing that it can be displayed on our website, our mobile app, our social media accounts or on the relevant Outfitter or affiliate partner’s website.
Providing your personal data to Bookyourhunt.com is voluntary. However, depending on the type of service you want to use, we might only be able to provide you with this service if certain personal data is collected. For instance, we cannot process Hunting trip reservation if we don't collect your name and contact details.
3) How does Bookyourhunt.com share your data with third parties?
In certain circumstances, we share your personal data with third parties. The primary purpose is to share relevant personal data with the Outfitter to complete your Hunting trip reservation. There are also other parties that can receive some of your data. Please see below more detail about that.
- The Outfitter: In order to complete your Hunting trip reservation, we transfer relevant reservation details to the Outfitter. Depending on the type of Hunting trip and the Outfitter requirements, this can include your name, email address, telephone number, hunting license, your preferences and other info you specified when you made the reservation. Another example is if you have a query about a Hunting trip, we may contact the Outfitter and ask them to handle your request.
Business Partners: We work with a number of business partners, which distribute or advertise the Bookyourhunt.com services. First of all, these include our affiliate partners.
When you make a reservation on one of our affiliate partners’ websites or apps, certain personal data that you give them such as your name, email address and other relevant information will be forwarded to us to complete your Hunting trip reservation. At the same moment, the business partners can receive certain parts of your personal data such as your name and email address. This is for their own internal purposes (such as analytical or marketing purposes). Take the time to read their privacy notice if you want to understand how they may process your personal data.
- Competent Authorities: We disclose personal data to law enforcement insofar as it is required by law or is strictly necessary for the prevention, detection or prosecution of criminal acts and fraud or if we're otherwise legally obliged to do so.

Please read the instructions of your mobile device to understand how to change the settings and enable the sharing of such data or the receipt of push notifications.
6) How does Bookyourhunt.com use social media?
