Uses of Data
We will use the information you have given us to help us complete your transactions, or requests, and to communicate back to you.
From time to time we may also use your information to contact you or to provide you with information that we feel may be useful to you.
We will not sell, rent, or disclose your personally identifiable information without your permission or unless we are required by law.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on your hard drive containing limited information about you. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information whilst on our website. Once you close your browser, the cookie simply terminates. Cookies are helpful in many ways, e.g. you will not have to enter a password more than once thereby saving time while on our website. They also keep track of the contents of your villa shortlist and enable us to track and target your interests to enhance the experience on our website.
We use IP (Internet Protocol) addresses to analyse trends, administer the site, track user's movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We may also gather information about your web browser and computer Operating System. This type of logging is in no way harmful, and we never gain direct access to your hard drive. This website never automatically logs your email address.
This website takes every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
Capturing of Confidential Information Online
When our booking form asks you to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), it is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL (Secure Socket Layer). While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. To learn more about SSL, follow this link www.thawte.com/ . Your personal information is never transmitted via email, and is never viewed or transmitted unencrypted.
Use of Email Forms (such as brochure request and request for further information)
These email forms are not secure, i.e. they are not protected by SSL. Once submitted this type of form is transmitted unencrypted via email directly to our offices. Any personal information sent via these forms, (address, credit card details) is done so entirely at your own risk. We cannot be responsible for any personal information sent by email.
