International Data Protection Guidelines
As a company registered in Australia we work by the data protection guidelines and legislation dictated under Australian law. Other countries data protection laws may not be regulated in the same way. Please be aware that the countries and destinations that we deal primarily with all have different jurisdictions and requirements that may not be compliant with Australia, US or any other European country that you are based in and therefore by providing us with your information you are consenting to the transfer of information about you and the use of the information we hold as detailed in Information that you provide section.
An active travel insurance policy is required. It is a pre-requisite that you make arrangements for comprehensive travel insurance that covers you for medical, air-evacuation and accident (including SCUBA diving & snorkeling). Please be reminded that if it is a watersports orientated trip and scuba diving is involved, it is MANDATORY to carry insurance which covers scuba diving (if you are a diver) and snorkeling, including the costs for re-compression chamber & air evacuation. While most travel insurance policies will cover scuba diving, they often fall short when it comes to air-evacuation and paying for re-compression treatment. We highly recommend DAN Insurance membership (Divers Alert Network).
We strongly suggest that you purchase comprehensive insurance that also includes trip cancellation and interruption, luggage and personal effects protection. This insurance will protect you from financial disappointment in the event unforeseen circumstances prevent you from participating in the trip, or for other reasons. Although every possible care is taken to safeguard you and your property, Wild Earth Expeditions accepts no liability for any accidents, injuries, illnesses or death incurred, or for any loss of, or damage to your property, or for any unforeseen changes or interruptions to the expedition. No credit on any unused portions will be given and the cancelation policy will apply. Check out your travel insurance options with your travel agent or contact us for recommendations.
We take numerous precautions administratively and technically to ensure the safeguard of your information and details to prevent from lost, theft, fraud, unauthorised use, criminal use, disclosure or modification. However, no one can guarantee the complete safety of your information. You transmit your information at your own risk.
Any changes that occur to this policy will be posted on our website and/or our social media forums and will be made available upon request. In the event that major changes occur with how we will use your information we will provide you with at least 30 days notice and ask that you confirm that you accept the changes before proceeding.
