How we use technology to collect data about you (IP addresses and cookies)
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to sponsors of the British & Irish Lions. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on:
• our hosting service providers secure servers at a Tier IV UK Data Centre;
• secure servers in our offices;

• on the systems of the organisations to which we may disclose you personal information to.
The 2017 tour is taking place outside of the EU. Accordingly, some of the organisations to which we may disclose your personal information may be situated outside of the European Union. In order to provide you with the information and services you require (for example accommodation and flights), we may need to transfer your personal information to these countries, some of which may not protect privacy and personal data rights as extensively as in the European Union.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, or save your booking details, you are responsible for keeping this password private and confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
If you believe that your password has been compromised, change it immediately by logging in to our site and using the change password function or, alternatively, contact us at email@example.com.
