Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with a smooth, efficient experience with your reservation or other Service you request. In order for us process your reservation we will ask you for certain information, such as your name, your email address, your booking details, and payment information. We need your payment information so we can guarantee your reservation at confirmation. This information is necessary for the adequate performance of the Service you request from us, and to allow us to comply with legal obligations. Without it, we may not be able to provide you with all the requested Services.
We also collect certain information from the device you use to access our website, such as your IP address, what browser you use and what type of device you are using. In addition to the information that we collect ourselves, we sometimes receive information that is collected on our behalf by third parties, such as when you see an Instant World Booking advertisement displayed on a third party site.
For service providers creating a listing and using our travel agency and other marketing services, we may ask you to provide additional information, which may include identity verification, business authentication, and certain financial information (like your bank account or receiving account information) in order to facilitate the processing of payments.
Most of the personal data that we collect about you will be information that you have given to us yourself.
When you use our website and Service, we automatically collect information, including personal information, about the services you use and how you use them. This information is necessary for the adequate performance of the Service you request from us, to enable us to comply with legal obligations and given our legitimate interest in being able to provide and improve the functionalities of the Service.
Although we mainly collect information directly from you, there are circumstances where we collect information from third party sources.
For customers using this website to reserve travel services, we provide the information you submit in the confirmation process to the travel service provider. This is so they will know who you are and when you will be arriving. We provide your name, gender (if available), phone number, credit or debit card details, and the details of your booking. We supply your email address as well to facilitate communication. The travel service provider requires this information to guarantee a confirmed booking from you. The guarantee may involve the travel service provider verifying, authorizing, or charging a deposit to your credit or debit card, in accordance with their stated booking policies. All travel service providers we facilitate reservations for have agreed to the Instant World Booking terms and conditions and accept this Privacy & Security Policy. Also, we send reservation confirmations and other information about your reservation to your email address. This is part of the ordinary reservation process, and you agree that we will communicate with you for this purpose via email or other contact information you provide. We never provide any of your personal information, including payment details, to any third party outside of the specific reservation process that you initiate. By accepting this Privacy & Security Policy or by using this site, you expressly agree to such usage of your personally identifiable information.
For service providers, contributors, and all other users of this website, or any service provided by Instant World Booking, you agree that we will communicate with you about the website and services you use via your email address or other contact information you provide.

Instant World Booking collects your credit or debit card information to confirm your reservation or other travel service-related transaction. We adhere to the Data Security Standard (DSS) published by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). The PCI SSC was founded by the major card brands (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB International), who all require compliance with these standards. The PCI DSS is a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing cardholder account data security. Compliance ensures the highest level of security possible in handling your personal credit or debit card account information.
The cardholder account information you provide is protected in accordance with the PCI DSS. Your account information is used to make charges associated with your reservation or service transaction. It is also transmitted to the travel service provider to guarantee your reservation. The transmission of your cardholder account information is encrypted and protected according to the standards and practices described in this Privacy & Security Policy.
Instant World Booking uses advanced industry practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. Instant World Booking treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data, including encryption utilizing a technology called SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
When you book a reservation, sign in, or update your personal membership information, Instant World Booking automatically encrypts your personal information in transit from your computer to our server using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with the industry's highest available encryption key length. There are billions of possible key combinations, and only one of them works. So, it is almost impossible for an unauthorized party trying to intercept the information to find the right key, even if equipped with the best computers. This means your confidential information, as well as your credit or debit card transaction, is safe according to the highest level of security globally available on the internet.
We offer you the opportunity to post reviews of third party travel service providers, whose services you have used. Additionally, we may offer other opportunities to provide commentary and social interactive content.
