3. When Making a Reservation through telephone.
Reservations can be made by calling us directly. When you make a reservation we may ask you for Personal Information such as your name, address, telephone number and method of payment. We may also obtain from you any room preferences or special requests. Confirmation of your reservation will be provided to you, by e-mail, directly from the resort.
4. During your stay at Kappa Resort
During your stay, we record your itemized spending to properly assemble your folio, which sets out your accommodation rate and other expenses billed to your accommodation. We also record this information to comply with financial reporting requirements, including those imposed by our auditors and government regulators. We may also collect certain information as required by local laws (e.g. passport number).
In addition, we may retain the content of any document (including comment cards, electronic documents such as e-mails and other similar forms of communication) that you send us before, during or following your stay. This information may be shared with internal departments of the resort but will not be shared with any third party.
How do we store this information?
1. At the Resort
Kappa Resort ensures that all Personal Information is kept in a secure location, be it a database or filing cabinet. Furthermore, we take steps to ensure that only designated individuals have access to this information.
2. In Our Guest Reservation System
In order to serve you better we also store certain guest information in our Guest Reservation System. This is a secure customer database stored on a dedicated server.
The stored information includes guest name, address, phone numbers and credit card number, number of night stays, average daily rate and other statistic details.
What information is not secure?
It is important to note that any e-mail communication is not secure. This is a risk inherent in the use of e-mail. Please be aware of this when requesting information or sending forms to us by e-mail (for example, from the Contact Us section of our web site). We recommend that you do not include any confidential information (i.e. credit card information) when using e-mail. For your protection, our e-mail responses to you will not include any confidential information.
Why is Personal Information collected?
1. To Provide Superior Customer Service
Personal Information is collected to assist us in making your reservation, to ensure we meet your needs while you are staying with us and/or to allow us to contact you in relation to matters that arose from your stay with us.
Furthermore, by keeping certain Personal Information on file, such as information regarding guest history and itemized spending, former guests of Kappa Resort have the ability to confirm prior transactions and make special accommodation requests based on this history.
2. To Keep Our Guests Informed
As mentioned to our Legal Notices, we may at times send you information about our products, services, offers, deals, wishes, news about our resort or invite you to events via e-mail (e-newsletters).
You can choose at any time to stop receiving this e-newsletter by “unsubscribing”. In any case you will receive such newsletters only after your subscription ( online or at the registrations form )
What information may be exchanged between internal departments?
Information is shared between internal departments, where this will ameliorate the services to the guest (e.g. reservations department and front office department).
Further, if a guest does not pay the outstanding account on time, or acts in an unlawful manner in regards to payment obligations, this information may be shared among accounting personnel at Kappa Resort.
What Personal Information may be provided to third parties?
We will only share Personal Information about you outside Kappa Resort without your consent, where: (a) it is required or authorized by law (for example, in response to a legal subpoena); (b) it is required to provide you with services you have requested in which case you will be considered to have implied your consent (i.e. car rental, massage); (c) if your stay has been paid for by a third party we will provide billing information to the paying party; (d) if you have failed to pay balance.
If Kappa Resort suspects any unlawful activity is taking place, it may investigate and/or report its findings or suspicions to the police or other relevant law enforcement agency.
How do I access my Personal Information?
We understand that you may like to know what Personal Information we hold about you. We are happy to assist you with your request. To protect your Personal Information, however, we require that you prove your identity to us at the time your request is made.
When you make a request in person, we will require you to produce some form of photo identification such as a passport or a driver’s license and you will be asked to sign a request form.
Where you make a request by other means, we require the request be made in writing via fax or letter including a copy of a government issued identification and signature. We also require home and business addresses and phone numbers so we can check them with our files and satisfy ourselves as to your identity.
