In Simplybook we take your privacy seriously, as we do take our own. This is why we only collect information that is essential to process your booking. We only keep it for the time needed to provide you with your vehicle rental and insurance service and for the period required by legal obligations. We only use the essential information to contact you about news and offers after your clear consent. You have the right to access, change or delete this information.
Why we ask you to provide information
Operational and Communication Purposes
We ask you to provide some information such as your full name, driver’s license, phone number and email details in order to process your vehicle booking and insurance coverage.
Simplybook will only use your email to send the necessary documents for your vehicle rental. We will only send further emails to let you know about our offers or travel destinations after we receive clear consent from you.
We also ask you to provide your payment card information to process your booking. Simplybook does not store this information. To ensure safe transactions we use Stipe, a secure online payment service system. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, Stripe makes use of best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security.
In order to improve our services, website and blog user experience, we also use Google Analytics. If you want to opt out you can install opt-out browser add-on.
We also collect data from car rentals offices such as vehicle size or operational information in order to improve Simplybook to better suit our partners needs.
How we store and share your information
