Privacy Policy

TVM Management Co Ltd trading as Thames Visitor Moorings (TVM) takes the processing of personal data very seriously and strives to adhere to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Data Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We use ISO certified cloud services and applications. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorised alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in our possession. This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls. We use TLS technology to encrypt data during transmission through public internet and ISO certified cloud services and applications.

However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Service, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact us as set forth in the Contact Us section.
If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.

TVM does not store or collect any customer credit card details or data on its servers. TVM use the third party applications provided by PayPal and World Pay to process our customer transactions.
