Browsing

This website does not collect personally identifiable information from your computer when you browse this website and request pages from our servers. This means that, unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with personally identifiable information, we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personally identifiable information. When you request a page from our website, our servers log the information provided in the HTTP request header including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request, and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. We collect the HTTP request header information in order to make our website function correctly and provide you the functionality that you see on this website. We also use this information to better understand how visitors use our website and how we can better tune it, its contents and functionality to meet your needs.

Information We Collect and Its Uses

When we need to collect personally identifiable information from you to execute the requested transaction or provide you with a particular service, we will ask you to voluntarily supply us with the information we need. For example, if you would like to make a reservation at one of our hotels or resorts, we will ask you for information such as name, address, telephone number and email address to process your reservation. We will use your email address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, might use the other information to contact you for help in processing. On occasion, we use third parties to provide or confirm for us contact information about you given the information you provided to us directly. We would then use this information for market analysis and marketing purposes.

In addition, when you provide contact details for transaction requests such as scheduling an appointment or requesting a proposal, we will use the contact information to keep you updated about future offers or promotions unless you opt-out online or otherwise notify us.

We treat the information you provide to us as confidential information; it is, accordingly, subject to our company's security procedures and corporate policies regarding protection and use of confidential information. Because laws applicable to personal information vary by country, additional measures that vary depending on the applicable legal requirements may be put in place. Information is generally processed and stored in the United States.

Securing The Transmission and Storage of Information

We treat the information you provide to us as confidential information; it is, accordingly, subject to our company's security procedures and policies regarding protection and use of confidential information. When we ask you for credit card data, it is transferred over a Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) line, provided you are using a SSL enabled browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. We also use SSL on other select pages where you would enter personally identifiable information. This ensures that your information is encrypted as it travels over the Internet. This secure mode is enabled before any such information is transmitted from your computer. You will know you are in secure mode when the padlock or key icon in the lower right-hand or left-hand corner of the computer screen appears in the locked position. In addition, when accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https."

After information reaches GoldKey|PHR, it is stored on a secure server that resides behind firewalls designed to block unauthorized access from outside of GoldKey|PHR. Because laws applicable to personal information vary by country, we may put in place additional measures that vary depending on the applicable legal requirements. Information collected on this site and covered by this privacy statement is generally processed and stored in the United States.
