The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

This client information is only utilised in reservations when requested by clients as mentioned earlier. This information is protected by a variety of security networks and fraud protection systems. Corporate client information is stored and managed on behalf of clients to assist them in their reconciliation and for client management purposes. A variety of client reports are accessible both online and by request from your client account manager. These reports assist clients to update their Corporate Travel Policies and to meet their constant improvement initiatives.
Clients are also encouraged to review information distributed directly to them. This information educates clients on industry news, updates on supplier’s products and travel safety alerts. Naturally, clients can opt-out at any time.
All businesses are required to comply with a legal request for information by third parties. These requests may be from Taxation offices, law enforcement or are court-appointed requests. Clients may also choose to access their information or ask Pulse Travel to supply their information to a third party. Pulse Travel will remain compliant in these circumstances.
Pulse Travel receives payments from clients in a variety of formats including cash, cheques, direct deposits and from credit cards. Pulse Travel is not a bank nor does it have credit management experience. We are therefore unable to offer credit to any client. Clients predominantly utilise credit cards and enjoy the credits offerings and loyalty programs that these credits cards offer. There is no reason without the client’s prior written authority for Pulse Travel to be involved in any Client Credit Reporting other than credit cards utilised to book reservations authorised by a client. Corporate Clients will be asked to review a pre-authorised Credit Card Authority form to expedite processing.
