We value the trust you place in us. Any personal data you share with us will not be shared with others without your explicit permission. We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to respond to any legal process.
This policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit this website, kochiheritageproject.in, how we use it, and how we keep it secure.
Information We Collect
When you visit our Web Site, you may provide us with (1) personally identifiable information that you knowingly choose to disclose (2) general information that does not contain personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information You Choose to Provide
We may ask for information from you for the purpose of answering questions, fulfilling requests, or collecting feedback. Where possible, this information is optional. For example, we require an email address to respond to a question but you may, on a volunteer basis, include your name on our feedback form.
We do not make your contact information or any other personally identifiable information available to anyone outside The Kochi Heritage Project or its volunteers (who use the information only for authorized The Kochi Heritage Project purposes) unless we are legally required to do so. No one ever uses this information for any commercial purposes.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
In addition to the above, we collect certain anonymous (non-personally identifiable) information to help us improve the The Kochi Heritage Project web site and to evaluate the access and use of our content. Such information includes your IP address, the requested URL, the browser version and type. We also use Google Analytics for traffic analysis.
Booking A Tour
To book a tour, we require your name, email address and mobile number. We will only use this information when it’s important to contact you as we prepare for your tour departure. This information is stored in our database and can be accessed by The Kochi Heritage Project office staff in order to assist you with booking or payment if necessary. We will also share your contact information to our storytellers who are assigned for your tour. They will need this information to coordinate with you before the start of the tour.
At the time of booking, you will also need to provide payment information such as credit card number or bank transfer details. We NEVER collect any of the client’s financial information, like Credit card details, expiration date etc, as it is collected by the Payment gateway provider under a very secure terminal.
We will be sharing a TripAdvisor review link via WhatsApp and Email at the end of the tour. If you choose to write a review, you will be required to create a TripAdvisor member account (if you aren’t already a member). At that time, you will have the option to opt into TripAdvisor marketing emails, and, if so, will receive general TripAdvisor email campaigns. Email addresses submitted for Review will not be used for any other purpose and are stored securely.

We will send you information about The Kochi Heritage Project tours and products, company news and events, and special offers once a month, though occasionally it may be more than that.

You have the right to request access to your information for the purpose of correcting your information, changing how your information is used, or erasing your information at any time.
