For the purpose of operating our business, information we collect about you will need to be disclosed in the following specific circumstances:

  1. When you pay by credit card on our website, your credit card details will be sent to the Bank of New Zealand via DPS in an encrypted format using secure socket layer technology (or another registered bank we use from time to time using similar security mechanisms).
  2. When you make a confirmed booking, a summary of your details will be sent to the relevant Tourism Supplier so it is able to adequately provide the booking “as advertised” to you, this may include you contact details so that the Tourism Supplier can contact you urgently about your booking if necessary.
  3. If relevant, information provided by you such as dietary requirements, allergies, and comments from you will also be provided to the Tourism Supplier.


To eliminate identity fraud, the Tourism Supplier should ask you to provide photo identification when you present for your activity, tour or other product, to ensure that your identity matches the booking identity. A record and/or copy of this photo ID may be retained by the Tourism Supplier to minimise the risk of fraudulent credit card usage and for verification purposes with your credit card provider in the event of disputation. This identification information may be supplied to Traveldrift by the Tourism Supplier.
Where we suspect fraud of any kind we reserve the right to contact your bank and disclose relevant information to it.
