Which Information Can I Access?

Railwayscenics gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with us for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.

How do we store and protect your personal information?

Railwayscenics are committed to protecting your personal information once we have it. We implement physical, business and technical security measures. Despite our efforts, if we learn of a security breach, we will notify you so that you can take appropriate protective steps.

We also do not want your personal information for any longer than we need it, so we only keep it long enough to do what we collected it for. Once we do not need it, we take steps to destroy it unless we are required by law to keep it longer.

Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account.
