What information we collect and for what purpose
Email forms to contact tour operators and/or accommodations
You could decide to use an email form on www.africatravel-guide.com to contact a tour operator or accommodation should you wish to enquire about a booking or have a general question. These emails, including your email address, will be sent directly to the tour operator or accommodation with a copy to us, which will be stored in our email inboxes and database.

Disclosure of data
We keep your personally identifiable information confidential and we generally do not disclose it. But, please note the following clarifications and exceptions:
When you use an email form on Africa Travel Guide to contact a tour operator or accommodation, we share your message and email address with them since that is the reason why you used the email form in the first place. These tour operators and accommodations can be located from different countries and their governments could have less strict privacy laws.
Our employees, directors, officers, owners, affiliated companies and independent contractors have access to some of your personally identifiable information for the purpose of helping us run our business (and not for their own purposes). They access and use such data subject to our instructions and on a “need to know” basis.
If we are in the process of selling our company, our site, or substantial parts of our business, you agree we may disclose and/or transfer your personally identifiable information as well as other information to the (potential) new owner so they can better value our business and, if sold, continue to operate the service this website provides. This will also be the case if the new owner is a company, organization or an individual.
We may also share your personally identifiable information to respond to law enforcement requests, court orders or any other legal process or if we believe that such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent or respond to illegal activities, fraud, and physical threats to you or others or as otherwise required by any applicable law or regulation.
We take strict security measures to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. These measures include limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers as well as electronic security systems, data encryption and password protections, which guard against unauthorized access.
Control over your data
You always have the right to review the personal information you have stored with us. You can request your personal information by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please state ‘request personal information’ in the subject line of your email.
If your personal information is incorrect, we will change it upon your request. You can also ask us to remove your personal information from our database by sending us an email to the same email address.
If you have any suggestions or remarks about this Agreement, please send an email to: email@example.com.
