We do our utmost to ensure your personal information is safeguarded and protected.
What is considered personal information and why would it be collected?
Langtang Ri collects personal information only to the extent necessary to deliver the services, products, or information you, or an agent or other passenger bookings on your behalf, request.
Langtang Ri, either directly or through our agency and booking partners collects, holds, uses and discloses, only as necessary the following personal information from customers and others in the course of offering services or providing services to you: full name, age, home address, phone number, e-mail address, passport and travel medical information, where required, insurance details, ISIC information, where applicable, nationality, residency, nutrition preferences, trip evaluations, travel & accommodation preferences, comments you provide us, trip destination information, credit card and/or other payment information, etc. The collection of this information is done to allow us to provide services to you as requested.
We may also collect personal information, including contact information, if you subscribe to our newsletter, or to request a brochure, which we will use only to provide you with the service you have requested (or other substantially similar services directly related to your request).
Langtang Ri collects personal information from those individuals applying for employment or similar positions with the company to the extent necessary to (i) identify the individual and (ii) evaluate their suitability for the position applied for. This information may include name, contact information, educational and employment background, criminal record information, residency and/or citizenship information, and other information necessary for us to screen potential employees and staff.
Langtang Ri collects personal information from agents and agencies to the extent required to allow agents to book Langtang Ri trips, and to be properly credited for such booking, as necessary and as dictated by the relationship between the agent and Langtang Ri. Such information may include name, employment relationship or employer information, work or business address, etc.
How is my personal information used or disclosed?
Langtang Ri uses this personal information to provide the services and/or products you have requested, or to provide you with information about those services or Langtang Ri. This includes using personal information to: register you to receive newsletters, answer your request for further information about our trips, make a booking or booking(s), provide you with information about the Company and/or our services, and to receive and implement feedback on those services. Furthermore, the personal information allows us to:
Langtang Ri may also use your personal information to book products and services for you or on your behalf from our third party suppliers and service providers, or other service providers or merchants for whom we act as agent from time to time. This collection of personal information can be both for our internal purposes, for example, to process your booking, and occasionally on behalf of the parties for whom we act as agent, for their internal purposes in providing the services or products you have requested. Please be aware that the consent you provide to the collection and use of personal information by Langtang Ri, applies equally to the parties whose products and services we sell or book on your behalf. For example, if you purchase a flight from us, you will be deemed to have consented to your personal information being provided to the airline to enable your flight to be booked.
What are the consequences of failing to provide Personal Information?
If you do not provide the Personal Information that we request, we may not be able to deliver the services you have requested, which may mean you won’t be able to participate in our trips, purchase the items from our store, or subscribe to our newsletter, to name a few. If you have paid a deposit and later refuse to provide necessary Personal Information to Langtang Ri which Langtang Ri (or our partners and suppliers) require to deliver the service for which the deposit was paid (for example, for a flight which requires passport information), you may not be entitled to a refund for that service. Please contact us if you have any questions about providing or not providing Personal Information when booking or otherwise dealing with Langtang Ri. Personal information is not collected unless provided to us. This means you can visit and browse our website, or place a call to our sales contact centre, without having to provide any personal information to Langtang Ri. How do we collect this information and obtain your consent? We collect information from customers during the booking (or option) process, or during the inquiry process where required, via our sales channels, such as our website booking form, our sales contact centre (via e-mail or telephone), using medical forms filled out by you or your authorized representative, through on-line evaluations submitted by you, via on-line or other entry ballot for any contests, competitions, using brochure or other similar request forms, and/or through our travel agency partners and other individuals who make or update bookings on your behalf, or otherwise interact with us on your behalf, including during the inquiry process (whether or not the inquiry proceeds to a booking).
This information is provided by you or on your behalf by someone you have authorized to make or inquire about a booking. We obtain consent by:

As you would expect, certain information must be provided to these suppliers in order to facilitate your booking and in order to provide you with service(s) you have requested.
