We are committed to protecting your privacy

We collect the minimum amount of information about you that is commensurate with providing you with a satisfactory service. This Policy indicates the type of processes that may result in data being collected about you. Your use of this website gives us the right to collect that information.

Information Collected

We may collect any or all of the information that you give us depending on the type of transaction you enter into, including your name and email address, together with data about your use of the website.  Other information that may be needed from time to time to process a request may also be collected as indicated on the website.

Information Use

We use the information collected primarily to process the task for which you visited the website.  All reasonable precautions are taken to prevent unauthorised access to this information.  This safeguard may require you to provide additional forms of identity should you wish to obtain information about your account details. If you subscribe to our newsletter we will collect your name and email address. We will use this to periodically (twice a month at most) send you information about new hotels in Thailand and other related news that we feel might be of interest to you.

Cookies

A cookie is a small file which is placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, (your use of this site implies your agreement)  the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic. Cookies also allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. No personally identifiable information about you can be tracked by traffic cookies. The information collected this way includes, where you are in the world, how you got to this site (by searching a term in a search engine or clicking a link on another site or directly typing the url into the address bar etc), which pages you visit, how long you view each page and any links you use to leave this site.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Disclosing Information

We do not disclose any personal information obtained about you from this website to third parties except when we need to do so in order to complete the transaction – e.g. when arranging for a courier company to deliver goods that you have ordered.  We may also use the information to keep in contact with you and inform you of developments associated with our business. You will be given the opportunity to remove yourself from any mailing list or similar device. If at any time in the future we should wish to disclose information collected on this website to any third party, it would only be with your knowledge and consent.

We may from time to time provide information of a general nature to third parties – for example, the number of individuals visiting our website or completing a registration form, but we will not use any information that could identify those individuals.

Changes to this Policy

Any changes to our Privacy Policy will be placed here and will supersede this version of our Policy. We will take reasonable steps to draw your attention to any changes in our policy, including Tweeting a message when changes are made.
