We process personal data of individuals so that we may supply cave tours and goods, and for the answering of enquiries; for the obtaining of goods and services for the operation of our business; and for the employment and administration of our staff.

The lawful bases for the data processing are Contract, and Legitimate Interests.  The Legitimate Interests for the processing are to sell our goods and services, to buy the goods and services that we require for the operation of our business, to employ our staff, and to respond to miscellaneous enquiries we receive.

We process personal data which are not obtained from the individual they relate to.  The categories of data obtained in this way are names, contact details, dates of birth, and financial, legal and statutory information. The sources of these personal data are public authorities, our suppliers and contractors, medical practitioners, and trade associations.

The categories of recipients of the personal data are public authorities, providers of financial services, payroll bureaux, and our suppliers and contractors.

We do not transfer personal data to third countries or to international organisations.

Our customers’ data are retained until a cave tour has been provided, and until the sale of any goods has been completed.  In the case of prospective customers, the data are retained until we have replied to their enquiry. In the case of group visit organisers, data may be retained to facilitate the processing of repeat orders.  Our suppliers’ and contractors’ data are retained until our relationship with them is terminated, in order to facilitate further orders.  Our employees’ data are retained until the termination of the employment, and for any statutory retention period afterwards.

Individuals whose personal data we process have the right to be informed about this processing; the right of access to these data; the right to rectification of inaccurate data; the right to erasure (‘the right to be forgotten’); in certain circumstances, the right to restriction of processing of the data; if circumstances are applicable, the right to data portability; in certain circumstances the right to object to the processing of the data; and the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, which in the United Kingdom is the Office of the Information Commissioner.

In the case of individuals with whom we have a contract, the contract may oblige the individuals to provide us with personal data as part of the performance of the terms of the contract. In certain circumstances we may be obliged by statute to ask individuals for personal data.

We do not process personal data by automated decision-making methods.
