Security 

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, mailing a visitors guide) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Requesting Information

In order to request travel information, you must first complete the request form. The request form requires you to give certain information (such as name and address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide additional information (such as a phone number), but it is not required. If we have trouble fulfilling your request, we'll use this information to contact you.

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve their access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. This tracking software is provided by Google Analytics, which uses cookies to track visitor usage (you can read Google's privacy policy here for further information).

Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, our website developer). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Sharing 

We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Email marketing campaigns published by this website or its owners may contain tracking facilities within the actual email. Subscriber activity is tracked and stored in a database for future analysis and evaluation. Such tracked activity may include: the opening of emails, forwarding of emails, the clicking of links within the email content, times, dates and frequency of activity (this is in no way a comprehensive list). This information is used to refine future email campaigns and supply the user with more relevant content based around their activity.

Social Media Platforms

Communication, engagement and actions taken through external social media platforms that this website and its owners participate on are custom to the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies held with each social media platform respectively.

Users are advised to use social media platforms wisely and communicate/engage upon them with due care and caution in regard to their own privacy and personal details. This website nor its owners will ever ask for personal or sensitive information through social media platforms and encourage users wishing to discuss sensitive details to contact them through primary communication channels such as by telephone or email.

Shortened Links in Social Media

This website and its owners through their social media platform accounts may share web links to relevant web pages. By default some social media platforms shorten lengthy urls (web addresses, for example “http://bit.ly” and https://goo.gl” addresses). 

Users are advised to take caution and good judgement before clicking any shortened urls published on social media platforms by this website and its owners. Despite the best efforts to ensure only genuine urls are published many social media platforms are prone to spam and hacking and therefore this website and its owners cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any shortened links.
