And Site Security Statement
If you are in the European Economic Area (EEA), please see the GDPR privacy statement that will go into effect on May 25, 2018.
Our Hotel is committed to safeguarding your privacy while visiting the Hotel website, namely, www.PacificaHotels.com, (hereinafter all identified URLs are collectively referred to as the "Site"). Our goal is to provide you with an Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant to you. To achieve this goal, part of the operation of the site includes the gathering of certain types of information about site users.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION & 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 Hotel, participate in one of our promotions, make a reservation, 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:
- Register you as a Hotel member
- Contact you after you’ve submitted a website form
- Plan and purchase Hotel accommodations
- Enter your email in our promotions or sweepstakes
- Send marketing communications or surveys to you
- Respond to your questions or suggestions
- Improve the quality of your visit to our site
All forms will provide an opt-out button to allow you to choose not to participate in Hotel lists and future online marketing. In deciding whether or not to join such lists, please note that they are only used for Hotel purposes or in joint promotions with a Hotel 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 marketing lists at any time. All emails distributed to our marketing lists will contain easy, online access to unsubscribe.
PERMISSION FOR USE
If you decide to make an online reservation at the Site, you will be linked to a reservation interface and a third-party booking engine (“Booking Engine”). While it appears to be part of our site, the Booking Engine is 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 the Booking Engine Vendor carefully.
PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
We would like our Site visitors to feel confident about using the Site to plan and purchase their accommodations, so our Hotel is committed to protecting the information we collect. Our Hotel 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, or scrambling, technologies, and industry-standard firewalls. When you enter personal information during the reservation process, or during a customer email sign-up, your data is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure safe transmission.
PERSONAL INFORMATION RETENTION
The Hotel will retain your Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:
- The length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide Hotel services to you
- Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, specific laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time)
- Whether retention is advisable considering our legal position (for example, for statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations)
CHANGING AND ACCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
To the extent required by applicable law, you may be able to request that we inform you about the Personal Information we maintain about you, withdraw your consent for certain data processing activity, or request that we update, correct, delete, and/or stop processing your Personal Information. If you would like to review, correct, update, suppress, restrict or delete the Personal Information that you have previously provided to us, or if you would like to receive an electronic copy of your Personal Information, you may contact DataProtection@PacificaHotels.com or by mail at:
ATTN: Data Protection
Aliso Viejo, CA 92656, USA
For your protection, we only fulfill requests for the Personal Information associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before fulfilling your request. In your request, please make clear what Personal Information you would like to have changed, whether you would like to have your Personal Information suppressed from our database, or other limitations you would like to put on our use of your Personal Information. Please remember that if you make such a request, we may not be able to provide you with the same quality and variety of services to which you are accustomed.
Please note that we often need to retain certain data for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a change or deletion (for example, when you make a purchase or reservation, or enter a promotion, you may not be able to change or delete the Personal Information provided until after the completion of such purchase, reservation, or promotion). There may also be residual data that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed.
WITHDRAWING CONSENT TO USE
Please note that opting out of marketing emails may limit your access to certain offers, benefits, and features. Also, if you opt-out of receiving certain marketing emails, that opt-out may not apply to other communications that you may continue to receive from us, such as customer service messages, messages about your account or reservations with us, and emails responding to your communications with us or requests for information that we receive from you. Requests to opt-out of receiving future marketing emails from us can take up to ten business days to be effective.
