Data Protection Policy
LISA! Language Travel UK and our international partners are proud to offer a unique, innovative and modern concept and use the latest cutting-edge technology to keep in touch with our clients. Your privacy is of utmost importance to us, and you will find below an outline of our data protection policy explaining how we collect data and what we do with it. Rest assured, we do not pass any information, be it personal addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, names or any other personal information, on to third parties without your express permission. In addition, data collected by us is only ever used to provide you with the requested services. All colleagues at LISA! are highly trained and familiar with the 1998 Data Protection Act, and we are committed to upholding the principles of discretion outlined within.
As a provider of services for under 18s, we are particularly sensitive to the need to handle data concerning your children with the utmost discretion. Should you wish for your child to travel under another name, for example, to protect their identity for whatever reason, we will keep their true name confidential, even from our colleagues on site at the school and from their host family. We never reveal any personal information whatsoever about our customers to the media or other third parties.
We use data analysis programmes such as Google Analytics to collect information to help our Customer Service team identify customer needs and wishes, and to optimise our marketing strategy. You will find more information about this below in our Data Protection Policy which sets out exactly what information we collect, how we collect it and what we do with it.
