What is Personal Information?
We consider "Personal Information" to mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Unless permitted by law, we will not collect, use or disclose your Personal Information for any purpose without first obtaining your consent. However, we may seek consent to use and disclose Personal Information after it has been collected in those cases where we wish to use the Personal Information for a new or different purpose.
In most cases, and subject to legal and contractual restrictions, you are free to refuse or withdraw your consent at any time upon reasonable advance notice.
Consequently, if you choose not provide us with any required Personal Information, we may not be able to make appropriate arrangements with resort, travel or transport partners in relation to your travel requirements. We will endeavour to inform you of the consequences of the any such refusal or withdrawal of consent.
Why We May Collect Personal Information
We may collect Personal Information from you when you voluntarily provide it to us in order to: provide the travel services to you and other persons in accordance with your travel requirements; process payments relating to the travel requirements; provide you with information relating to the travel requirements, including, without limitation, products, services, promotional offerings and contests (including direct marketing); provide you with support in respect of the travel requirements; conduct surveys and customer research; meet legal and regulatory requirements; or such other purposes consistent with the foregoing purposes.
How We Collect and Use Personal Information
The legal bases for our processing of Personal Information are primarily that the processing is necessary for providing the Services and that the processing is carried out in our legitimate interests. For example, we may collect Personal Information when you: fill in forms (resort guest preferences), capture information to confirm your resort or travel reservation, register for newsletter correspondence.
When We May Disclose Your Personal Information
In certain circumstances, we may disclose certain information that we collect from you:
Please note that there are circumstances where the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information may be justified or permitted or where we are obliged to disclose Personal Information without consent. Such circumstances may include:
Where obliged or permitted to disclose your Personal Information without consent, we will disclose no more Personal Information than is reasonably required.
The Accuracy and Retention of Personal Information
We endeavour to ensure that any Personal Information in our possession is as accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes for which we use and/or disclose such Personal Information. If we become aware that your Personal Information in our possession is inaccurate, out-of-date or incomplete, we will endeavour to revise such Personal Information accordingly.
We will retain your Personal Information only for so long as it is required for the purposes it was collected or as required by applicable laws, regulations, or government orders. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with us, but it will be only for so long as it is reasonably necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise after the end of your relationship with us. When your Personal Information is no longer required, we will destroy, delete or convert it into an anonymous form.
Protection of Personal Information
We endeavour to maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical safeguards with respect to our offices and information storage facilities in order to prevent any loss, misuse, or unauthorised access, disclosure, or modification of Personal Information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, procedural, or technical safeguards. If you believe your Personal Information has been compromised, please contact us as set forth in the “Contact Us” section. If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.
Rights Regarding Your Personal Information
On written request and subject to proof of identity, you may access the Personal Information that we hold, used or communicated and ask that any necessary corrections be made, where applicable, as authorised or required by law.
