Hostelbay.com Privacy and Security Statement


Hostelbay.com has been processing hostel reservations since 1979 and we have always placed the security of our internet transactions and our customers credit card details as our top priority.
We will continue to offer our customers the highest level of security available for online transactions and hope this reassures you when you make your reservations with us.
All sensitive information exchanged between your computer and our site is encrypted using SSL. Our SSL Certificate is provided by GlobalSign. This ensures that your information is transmitted securely and is safe from third parties. Please read on for more information on site encryption.

SITE ENCRYPTION

Hostelbay.com utilizes a technology called SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL is a set of rules followed by computers connected to the Internet.
Encryption - These rules include encryption, which guards against eavesdropping
Data Integrity - Data integrity, which ensures that your communications are not tampered with during transmission and
Authentication - authentication, which verifies that the party who receives your communication are who they claim to be.

HOW ENCRYPTION WORKS

There are two levels of encryption: 40-bit and 128-bit. With 40-bit encryption, there are billions of possible keys to decipher the coded information, and only one of them works. Someone intercepting the information would have to find the right key - a nearly impossible task. With 128-bit encryption, there are 300 billion trillion times as many keys as with 40-bit encryption. It is virtually impossible for an unauthorized party to find the right key, even if they are equipped with the best computers.
If you're about to send information to a site that's not using SSL, your browser will warn you first. SSL protects your communications during transmission. Because of the authentication involved, secure servers are slower than the regular server for delivering files. Therefore SSL is only used when transmitting sensitive information across the web.

PRIVACY POLICY

Hostelbay.com realizes some people are unsure about entering their personal details into websites over the Internet. Below, we explain how we use your information and how we protect your privacy. Hostelbay.com and its associated companies respect and protect your right to privacy in relation to your interactions with this website. Any information which is provided by you to Hostelbay.com via this website or otherwise will be treated in accordance with the terms of the Greece Data Protection Acts and or such amending or replacement legislation as may be adopted in Greece from time to time.

INFORMATION REQUIRED TO PROCESS YOUR BOOKING

For us to process a booking for you on behalf of a travel services provider, we require some information from you. This includes your name, nationality, your gender (or the gender of the group you are in), your phone number and email address. Also, since we confirm your booking while you are on the site, we require your credit or debit card details so we can guarantee your beds when you pay your deposit.

WHO SEES YOUR INFORMATION

We are required to send your information to the travel services provider with which you booked travel services so that the travel service provider knows who you are and when you will use its travel services. We give your name, your nationality, your gender (or the gender of the group you are in), your phone number, your email address, your credit card details and of course, the details of your booking. The travel service provider requires this information to accept a confirmed booking from you. All travel service providers on whose behalf we facilitate bookings have agreed to the Hostelbay.com terms and conditions and accept this privacy policy.

SECURITY

All sensitive information exchanged between your computer and our site is encrypted using SSL. Our SSL Cert. is provided by GlobalSign. This ensures that your information is transmitted securely and is safe from third parties.
You should be aware that where you link to another website from this website, that Hostelbay.com has no control over that other website. Accordingly, Hostelbay.com cannot guarantee that the controller of that web site will respect your privacy in the same manner as Hostelbay.com.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

In addition to the use and disclosure of information which is required when you avail of our travel related and data processing services (and which we describe above), we use your email address for sending you a confirmation of your bookings along with a pre-trip reminder e-mail or to contact you for any reason directly linked to your booking, or occasionally to inform you of new features on Hostelbay.com. Our booking confirmation and pre-trip reminder emails may contain banner advertising. We only use your phone number to contact you urgently if there is a problem with your booking. In circumstances where you contact us with a query, we use your contact details in order to respond to your query.
