Your privacy is extremely important to us. We are committed to protecting the privacy of any personal information you provide. This policy explains how we manage personal information and the security precautions taken.

How we protect it
When you book trips or access your nakedrewards information, a secure server is used.
We use industry standard data encryption (SSL) for transmission of personal information such as credit card details you provide online. You can check this is active by looking for the padlock symbol on many browsers. SSL allows a secure connection between your web browser and our web server, using a private (or secret) key to encrypt the information.This encryption provides greater consumer protection than many forms of offline credit card payment.
