Privacy Policy
SR understands the importance of your privacy and respect that you want to safeguard the use to which your personal information is put. Consequently, we make it a high priority to ensure that your personal information (including credit card details) remains secure and confidential and is used only for the intended purpose. In this privacy policy we explain how we collect data about you and the nature of that data, how we use that data, who that data may be sent to and how you can amend data you have submitted to us.
Our privacy policy applies to our website (www.secret-retreats.com or any other web page or website with the SR branding) and to personal information supplied over the telephone, by e-mail or letter.
The data we collect and how we collect it
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
  • your first and last name, telephone number, postal and e-mail address, fax number;
  • information about your computer and about your visits to and use of our website including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation;
  • if you make a reservation or purchase any items using a credit or debit card then we need the card number, cardholder name, expiry date and CVV number;
  • your hotel preferences and travel experiences;
We may ask you for personal information in a variety of circumstances, for instance:

Our use of 'cookies'
Some websites store, and so does www.secret-retreats.com, information in a small text file, called a "cookie," on your hard disk.
Cookies contain information about you and your preferences. For example, if you inquire about rates and availability, the site might create a cookie that contains the details you entered. Or it might only contain a record of which pages within the site you visited, to help the site customise the view for you the next time you visit.
Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a website, can be stored in a cookie. For example, the site cannot determine your e-mail name unless you choose to type it. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer, and only the site that created the cookie can read it.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can set your browser to alert you every time a cookie is offered, letting you decide whether or not to accept it. You can prevent the use of cookies by modifying your browser, although you may not be able to use some of our services if you prevent the use of cookies.
SR will not, without your express consent, provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

Disclosures of information
Agents, contractors or third party service providers to SR may receive your personal information in the course of providing services to SR. Using contractual or other arrangements, we ensure these parties protect your personal information in a manner consistent with our privacy policy. SR also manages properties on behalf of third party owners. Guest information required for the business transaction between the guest and the property is shared with the property owner, but no other personal information is shared with property owners. If we cease to work with any particular property, your personal information may remain with SR and such information that is shared with the property owner remains with such owner.
We may, from time to time, conduct joint marketing activities with selected partners where we deem the combined offers to be of relevance or interest to our guests. In these instances, your personal information will only be accessible to mailing houses or parties contractually engaged by SR with appropriate privacy and confidentiality controls in place. At no time will your personal information be issued to any partners for their own use.
We will only share your personal information about you outside SR without your consent where: (a) it is required or authorized by law or any regulatory authorities; (b) it is required to provide you with services you have requested in which case you will be deemed to have given your consent; (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 amounts owed to a property; or (e) to global or regional hotel alliances to which SR is a party, in accordance with customary industry practice.
