Security and Payment Information

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy and Cookies Policy. All information you provide us will be securely stored and never will be shared outside Time Nomads without your permission, except when it is legally required. Inside Time Nomads, your data is stored in password-protected servers with limited access and a two-factor authentication has been setup in any third-party tools used, for example, Mailchimp.

If you decide to open a user account in Time Nomads’ website, you will have to setup a password in order to access again in the future. The user of said account is responsible for keeping this password confidential and also for any and all activities that occur under user’s account. If you suspect that someone else is accessing to your account or you are aware of any suspect activity, please change your password and contact Time Nomads immediately. Time Nomads will not be liable for any loss that the user may incur as a result of someone else using their password, so we strongly encourage you not to share your login details with anyone.

Any payment transactions will be encrypted and managed by our third-party payment processors, so your credit card details or banking information will not be stored by Time Nomads in any case. We would also like to remind you to NEVER send your credit card or banking details to us by email or any other ways of communication, as this is very dangerous. We won’t be liable for any issues or loss if you do decide to send us said information. If there are any concerns with your transaction at some point, we will request your order number and contact details to verify your identity, but we will never ask for passwords or credit card/bank number.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.
