The    tour    cost    does    not    include    lunch    and    evening    meal    as experience    has    shown    that    travellers    usually    wish    to    have freedom   of   choice   regarding   where   and   what   to   eat,   as   opposed to    being    tied    to    a    hotel.    The    tour    price    does    not    include additional   costs   such   as   museum   fees,   travel   insurance,   car   hire, cabin/room   upgrades,   newspapers,   telephone   calls,   additional food and beverages, wine/beers/spirits etc. Driving in the UK, France and Belgium Somme   Battlefield   Tours   Ltd   shall   not   be   liable   or   in   any   way responsible   for   any   failure   or   alleged   failure   of   any   self-drive client(s)   to   fully   comply   with   all   road   traffic   and   other   associated requirements,   laws,   rules   and   regulations,   including   all   licence, equipment,     vehicle     construction     and     use,     insurance     and documentation     requirements,     when     driving     in     the     United Kingdom,    France    and    Belgium.        Furthermore,    will    not    be responsible   or   liable   for   any   penalties,   financial   or   otherwise, imposed   by   any   governing   or   regulatory   body,   organisation   or country   for   any   failure   to   comply   with   any   rules,   regulations   or laws   that   may   be   incurred   whilst   participating   in   a   tour   arranged or   provided   by   us.      There   are   many   helpful   websites   where advice   can   be   obtained,   such   as   those   provided   by   motoring organisations such as the RAC and AA.

For   the   purposes   of   the   regulations   we   are   a   ‘controller’   of   data, and   NOT   a   ‘processor’   of   data   (because   we   do   not   share   your   data with    anyone    other    than    as    outlined    below    in    connection    with booking your tour).  What records we keep If,   and   only   if,   you   book   a   self-drive   tour   with   us,   we   will   make   a record   of   your   name,   your   address,   your   email   address   and   phone number    and,    if    we    book    a    Channel    crossing    for    you,    the registration   number   of   the   vehicle   you   will   be   using      (we   do   not need    details    of    your    vehicle    if    you    are    making    your    own arrangements).      In   the   case   of   your   name,   address   and   vehicle registration    number,    these    details    are    entered    on    to    a    single Microsoft   Excel   spreadsheet   which   is   retained   on   just   one   single desktop   computer   which   cannot   be   accessed   by   anyone   other   than the   two   directors   of   Somme   Battlefield   Tours   Ltd   (by   way   of   a password).    Neither    your    phone    number    or    email    address    are entered   on   to   our   to   computer   database    (a   written   record   on   a hand-written   paper   file   only).      Incoming   and   outgoing   emails   are processed    by    British    Telecom    in    accordance    with    their    GDPR compliance procedures. Please   also   note   that   we   do   not   use   any   form   of   ‘cloud’   storage   or sharing.      The   personal   details   we   keep   are   retained   on   just   one computer,   access   to   which   is   protected   by   the   most   up-to-date firewall, password and McAfee security. Do we share your details with anyone? The    short    answer    is    absolutely    not ,    other    than    with    your permission   passing   your   name   (and   phone   number   if   you   agree)   to the   hotel   we   book   for   you,   as   well   as   Eurotunnel   or   P&O   Ferries   if booking   you   a   Channel   crossing.      Unlike   some   larger   companies, we   do   NOT    share   your   personal   details   with   anyone   for   whatever purpose, or for whatever reason. It’s as simple as that!
If   I   pay   by   credit   or   debit   card,   will   these   details   also   be held on a computer? Absolutely   not.   When   paying   by   debit   or   credit   card   we   do   not record    any     details    on    our    computer    or    any    other    electronic recording   device/database.      The   only   record   we   do   keep   is   a   copy of   the   receipt   produced   by   our   card   terminal,   which   is   clipped   to the   paper   record   of   your   tour   booking.   A   copy   of   the   same   receipt will be sent to you when we post your guide package. To   ensure   maximum   security   when   paying   by   either   debit   or   credit card,   we   do   not   offer   this   facility   as   an   on-line   feature   on   our website.  All payments are therefore only taken by phone. What is your policy on sending unsolicited emails? Quite   simple   really.   We   will   NEVER   send   emails   to   anyone   unless they   have   emailed   us   first   seeking   further   information   about   our tours.        We    will    never    engage    in    the    practice    of    sending    out unsolicited    emails    promotional    emails,    not    just    because    the regulation   prohibit   this   most   annoying   practice,   but   because   we hate it ourselves! Can    I    have    a    copy    of    the    record    you    retain    on    your database? Yes.   Once   we   have   verified   that   you   are   the   person   in   question   we will   be   pleased   to   provide   you   with   a   screen-shot   of   your   data.   We remain   vigilant   to   guard   against   any   attempt   to   obtain   your   details by    way    of    fraudulent    representation,    hence    the    verification question   we   will   need   to   ask   you   before   any   personal   details   are released. Does    you    website    use    cookies    or    any    other    form    of tracking devices? Most   certainly   NOT!      We   built   our   website   ourselves   and   so   have complete   control   over   its   content.      That’s   why   we   know   for   sure that   our   website   is   100%   ‘clean’   with   no   hidden   trickery   lurking behind what you see.

The   tour   cost   does   not   include   lunch   and   evening meal   as   experience   has   shown   that   travellers   usually wish   to   have   freedom   of   choice   regarding   where   and what   to   eat,   as   opposed   to   being   tied   to   a   hotel.   The tour   price   does   not   include   additional   costs   such   as museum   fees,   travel   insurance,   car   hire,   cabin/room upgrades,    newspapers,    telephone    calls,    additional food and beverages, wine/beers/spirits etc. Driving in the UK, France and Belgium Somme   Battlefield   Tours   Ltd   shall   not   be   liable   or   in any   way   responsible   for   any   failure   or   alleged   failure of   any   self-drive   client(s)   to   fully   comply   with   all   road traffic   and   other   associated   requirements,   laws,   rules and    regulations,    including    all    licence,    equipment, vehicle      construction      and      use,      insurance      and documentation    requirements,    when    driving    in    the United   Kingdom,   France   and   Belgium.      Furthermore, will    not    be    responsible    or    liable    for    any    penalties, financial   or   otherwise,   imposed   by   any   governing   or regulatory   body,   organisation   or   country   for   any   failure to   comply   with   any   rules,   regulations   or   laws   that   may be   incurred   whilst   participating   in   a   tour   arranged   or provided   by   us.      There   are   many   helpful   websites where   advice   can   be   obtained,   such   as   those   provided by motoring organisations such as the RAC and AA.
