We take the privacy and security of your information extremely seriously. Whether you are a guest making reservations or an interested party browsing our website (the “Site” at https://www.kirana-retreat.com/) and exploring our property/services, we strive to earn your trust by properly managing and safeguarding any data that you have shared with us.
Information we collect
During your stay at the Hotel and while making a reservation through our system, there are various details that could be personally identifiable to you. Such data we may collect includes:
- Your name, email address, home and business address, phone number, nationality and payment card information; and
- Information such as stay and room preferences made during the course of your reservation, such as your preferred room type and specific requests to the Hotel.
From the moment you make a reservation through our online system, website, or mobile application to when you check in at the hotel itself, it is likely that we will acquire some of your personal details. Additionally, third parties such as travel agencies and booking sites may also provide us with this information should you book through them instead.
Information we get from your use of our website
Besides collecting your information when you browse our website, use our mobile applications, or access certain services at the Hotel, such as wireless internet services, we also gather data about your device. This includes details like your country of residence, IP address and media access control address which are all automatically gathered.
We may collect your data and information for both operational purposes as well as to enhance the user experience. Additionally, we use your site usage to glean other details that can be used in aggregated trends and statistical analysis, like domain server type, computer model and web browser version.
Information stored on your computer (“COOKIES”)
When you visit this Site, the Hotel’s servers may store some essential data on your computer to maintain and improve its functionality. This is known as a “cookie” or similar file, which can only be read by the specific server that gave it to you. In essence, it acts like an identification card, tracking such important information such as website URLs, passwords, and individual preferences.
When you revisit a website, the cookie will identify your browser. It does not contain any code or dangerous viruses. You can delete cookies from your computer hard drive with the majority of Internet browsers, block them all outright, or receive a prompt before storing one. For more information on these processes, please refer to your browser instructions.
How we use this information
We use the information collected from you primarily to fulfil your hotel reservation. Before your stay, this may include sending your information to the Hotel or sending you pre-stay communications. Following your stay, we may also send you post-stay communications and satisfaction surveys to get feedback on your experience.
In some instances where we have your consent or where permitted under applicable law, we may send you marketing communications (which may include text messages) for products and services that we believe would be relevant to you.
We also may use information related to your stay to display targeted advertisements on our websites or on third-party websites or to send you more relevant messaging. Additionally, we use this information for purposes of aggregated trends and statistical analysis to evaluate and improve our products and services, plan new hotel locations and services and conduct other market research.
Who we share your information with
We will share your information with the Hotel you are staying at to fulfil your reservation. We may also share your information with third-party service providers to provide services in relation to our business as well as to help us improve our products and services.
For example, we might use a third party or a third-party product for the purposes of market research and data analytics. In certain instances, subject to local consent requirements, third-party service providers may also assist us with various marketing campaigns.
We may also share your information with third parties to extend special offers about their own products and services to you. Any such parties will need to agree to comply with our privacy requirements before we provide them with information.
Aside from the purposes described above, we do not share your stay information with any other third parties unless we have your consent or under special circumstances, such as:
- when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is required by law or to protect the safety of hotel guests, employees, the public or Hotel property;
- when disclosure is required to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena, warrant or legal process; or
- in the event of a merger, asset sale, or other related transaction.
There may be other times when we collect and use personal information; for example, if you choose to participate in one of our competitions or sweepstakes, sign up to receive our newsletters or other special offers and promotions, download one of our mobile applications or participate in one of our other services.
As the Hotel is affiliated with other hotels owned by affiliated companies, the information that you provide us during the course of a reservation or through the provision of any other services may be transferred to any of our affiliated entities and hotels around the world for the purposes of carrying out or facilitating these services.
