WEBSITE PRIVACY STATEMENT

At De Charmoy Estate Group, the privacy and confidentiality of user information is important. We are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of your information. We may update this policy from time to time, so please check here frequently. De Charmoy Estate Group will not disclose identifiable information to any third party without consent.

Because we understand that your privacy is important, we wish to explain the types of information we gather and the way in which we use it. This Privacy Policy applies to the Site. This Privacy Policy covers two types of information gathered at the Site, personal and aggregated. The term “personal information” refers to data you voluntarily provide in connection with use of the Site that identifies you and/or the company on whose behalf you are accessing and using the Site. Personal information includes, e.g., data submitted in connection with our services, such as your name, e-mail address, phone number, company affiliation, physical address and/or certain other personal information. The term “aggregated data” refers to general information regarding visitors and users of the Site that relates to use of the Site, e.g., traffic patterns, number of visits to certain pages, visits from other web sites or to third-party web sites linked to the Site, use of particular services and interest in services, information or features of the Site or other parties made available through or found at the Site.

What information is collected about you? How do we use it?

We take the utmost care to ensure that the personal information we obtain from you is not used in a way that you may be unaware of or not agreeable to. You may wish to submit an information request about our restaurants, participate in one of our promotions or subscribe to our e-mail or postal mail lists. In response, we may ask for information such as your name and postal address. In the event you opt to provide us with this information, we will only use it for the purpose specified by you at the bottom of the information gathering form.

Information collected on the Site may be used to:

Plan and purchase hotel accommodations

Make restaurant reservations

Enter your email in our promotions

Send marketing communications or surveys to you

Respond to your questions or suggestions

Improve the quality of your visit to our site

In deciding whether or not to join such lists, please note that they are only used for our purposes or in joint promotions with a hotel and restaurant partner. We do not sell, rent or share any of your personal information with any other party including any third-party joint promoters, nor use it for unapproved commercial purposes. You may request to be removed from our lists at any time. All emails distributed to our lists will contain easy, online access to unsubscribe.

Permission for Use

De Charmoy Estate may collect and use personal information that you submit at the Site in any manner that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy or disclosed elsewhere at the Site at the point you submit such personal information. At the time you submit personal information or make a request, the intended use of the information you submit will be apparent in the context in which you submit it and/or because the Site states the intended purpose. By submitting personal information at the Site, you are giving your consent and permission for any use that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy or disclosed elsewhere at the Site at the point you submit such personal information, and such consent will be presumed by De Charmoy Estate Group, unless you state otherwise at the time you submit the personal information. Please do not request any such communications on behalf of an individual or company if you are not authorized to make the request.

Secure Reservations

If you decide to make an online reservation at the Site, you will be linked to a reservation interface called PrenoHQ. While it appears to be part of our site, PrenoHQ is in fact provided by a third party and is governed by its privacy practices. We understand that security remains the primary concern of online consumers and have chosen PrenoHQ carefully. To that end, the company adheres to the strictest consumer privacy guidelines.

Protecting your information

We would like our Site visitors to feel confident about using the Site to plan their visit to our restaurants and facilities knowing De Charmoy Estate Group is committed to protecting the information we collect. De Charmoy Estate Group has implemented a security program to keep information that is stored in our systems protected from unauthorized access. Our Site is hosted in a secure environment. The Site servers/systems are configured with data encryption and industry-standard firewalls. When you enter personal information during a customer email sign-up, your data is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure safe transmission.

Withdrawing Consent to Use

If, after permitting use of your personal information, you later decide that you no longer want De Charmoy Estate Group to include you on its mailing lists or otherwise contact you or use your personal information in the manner disclosed in this Privacy Policy or at the Site, simply tell us by sending an e-mail, or by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” button at the bottom of our email communication to you.

Use of Aggregated Data

De Charmoy Estate is interested in improving the Site and may develop and offer new features and services. We monitor aggregated data regarding use of the Site for marketing purposes and to study, improve and promote use of the Site. In connection with such purposes, De Charmoy Estate Group and our business units may share aggregated data with third parties collectively and in an anonymous way. Disclosure of aggregated data does not reveal personal information about individual Site users in any way that identifies who they are or how to contact them.

Exceptions to the Privacy Policy

De Charmoy Estate has two exceptions to these limits on use of personal information: De Charmoy Estate may monitor and, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is required, disclose information to protect the security, property, assets and/or rights of De Charmoy Estate Group from unauthorized use, or misuse, of the Site or anything found at the Site. De Charmoy Estate may disclose information when required by law; however, only to the extent necessary and in a manner that seeks to maintain the privacy of the individual.

Use of Cookies and Analytics

To enable features at the Site, De Charmoy Estate Group may assign one or more “cookies” to your Internet browser. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation through our Site, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Site, and may provide you with customized content. A cookie is an Internet mechanism composed of a small text file containing a unique identification number that permits a web server to send small pieces of information or text by means of your browser and place them on your computer’s hard drive for storage. This text lets the web server know if you have previously visited the web page. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user.

We use cookies and/or analytics to collect and maintain aggregated data (such as the number of visitors) to help us see which areas are most popular with our users and improve and update the content on our site. While in the process of browsing our site, you also provide us with information that doesn’t reveal your personal identity. We use this aggregated data only as explained in this Privacy Policy. We do not connect aggregated data to any name, IP address, or other identifying information.

Children’s Privacy & Parental Consent

Please be aware that De Charmoy Estate Group has not designed this Site for, and does not intend for it to be used by, anyone under age 18. Accordingly, this Site should not be used by anyone under age 18. Our privacy policy prohibits us from accepting users who are under the age of 18. De Charmoy Estate Group specifically requests that persons under the age of 18 not use this Site or submit or post information to the Site. Should De Charmoy Estate Group acquire personal information or other data from users under the age of 18, De Charmoy Estate Group will not knowingly provide this data to any third party for any purpose whatsoever, and any subsequent disclosure would be due to the fact the user under age 18 used the Site and submitted personal information without solicitation by or permission from De Charmoy Estate Group.

However, those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as De Charmoy Estate Group .
