Our Commitment to Data Security
In order to provide secure transmission of all users’ financial information our servers use encryption technology to protect all the data for each transaction.
Key Tours uses two types of online registrations:
1. User registration: used to browse destinations/services and to plan itineraries (optional)
2. Passenger registration: used to complete reservations (required)
1. User Registration:
The user registration option enables visitors to access tourist information and various planning features on the website. A user may want to complete our registration form and provide us with contact information such as first and last name, e-mail address and a personal password. This allows the member to retrieve any trip planning completed during a previous visit to the website as well as confirmation e-mails. Additional optional information includes: gender, zip code, travel expertise, preferred departure and arrival airport. This information is primarily used to assist members in making reservations quickly and more efficiently and it enables Key Tours International to notify members with updates regarding their favorite destinations. The Sign up Preferences section allows the member to subscribe to our newsletter, to receive special deals, notification of new services and/or money-saving offers via e-mail as well as the option to participate in our online community. However, users will always have the option to decline these e-mail messages. User registration is optional but encouraged so Key Tours can better customize the content of the website to meet your specific needs and improve our products.

Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are trained and up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded of the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
