Information Collected and Use of Information
We do not collect “Personal Information” (information that personally identifies an individual) from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily e.g. through the use of on-line forms, although we collect additional information automatically about your visit to our Website. We do not require you to register in order to use the Website. We use the information collected through the Website for the purposes of:
- Providing and personalising our services
- Dealing with your inquiries and requests
- Our business development
- Maintaining information as a reference tool or general resource
- Providing you with information about products and services
When possible, this Website will provide you with the means to make sure that your Personal Information is correct and current.
As part of our operations as a global hotel management company, your personal information may be sent for processing to different parts of the world where we carry out business from time to time including in Europe and the US.
Like most standard Website servers we collect and use log files. This includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the website, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to Personal Information.
You should be aware that information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of our Internet servers and through the use of “cookies.” “Cookies” are small text files a Website can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the Website and allow a Website to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising.
In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or sale of a portion of our assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you prior to a change of ownership or control of your personal information.
We may disclose your Personal Information to other companies in our group, to our business partners, successors in title to our business, our suppliers and if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with applicable law or with legal process served on us or the Website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of us or this Website, and (c) protect the personal safety of users of our hotel(s), the Website, or the public in emergencies.
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal information necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing this Website and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge our processing of personal information in this way. However, we will endeavour to protect all personal information collected through this Website in accordance with strict data protection standards.
This Website contains links to other websites and service providers. For example, for online reservations, order forms and email marketing. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every Website that collects personal information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Website.
