The Complete Maldives Holiday Guide’s
Privacy Policy



Our Privacy Policy is part of our goal to make The Complete Maldives Holiday Guide the most comprehensive and trusted site for travel to the Maldives. We care about the destination and we care about our visitors, which means you!

This means that we understand that your privacy is important. Now as I’ve said, Charley – ever the researcher and with a nose for all things law-like has put together a privacy policy that explains what happens when you visit this site. Well, what she’s actually done (between buying shoes and ordering a new bikini), is find a template of a privacy policy, checked it for legalese, given it her feminine touch and hey presto!

Ok, to the stuff you need to know…

This privacy policy outlines the types of personal information we receive and collect when you use The Complete Maldives Holiday Guide, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard information. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with us.

The Complete Maldives Holiday Guide strives to maintain the highest standards of decency, fairness and integrity in all our operations. Likewise, we are dedicated to protecting our customers', consumers' and online visitors' privacy on our website.

It’s All About You… Personal Information

The Complete Maldives Holiday Guide only collects personally identifiable information from the visitors to our website on a voluntary basis - that is to say, when you give it to us. Personal information collected on a voluntary basis may include name, postal address, email address, company name and telephone number.

This information is collected if you request information from us, participate in a contest or sweepstakes, and sign up to join our email list or request some other service or information from us. The information collected is internally reviewed, used to improve the content of our website, notify you of updates, and respond to your enquiries.

As part of our privacy policy, once information is reviewed, it is discarded or stored in our files. If we make material changes in the collection of personally identifiable information we will let you know by placing a notice on our site. Personal information received from any visitor will be used only for internal purposes and will not be sold or provided to third parties and of course we accept any information you give us as being true and accurate.

It’s Also About Your Computer… Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

We may use cookies to help you personalise your online experience. Cookies are identifiers (little text files – that you can delete at any time) that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser.

The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise the sites pages, or register with any of our site's services, a cookie enables The Complete Maldives Holiday Guide to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

Google, one of our third-party advertisers, may add a cookie to determine targeted advertisements based on your preferences and your visit to our site and other sites on the internet. You can choose to opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy at http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html.

And, It's Also About Surfing The Web

The search box on this web site (“Search Box”) is powered by Google Inc (“Google”). You acknowledge and agree that Google’s privacy policy (located at http://www.google.co.uk/privacy.html) shall apply to your use of the Search Box and by using the Search Box you consent to Google using your personal data in accordance with its privacy policy.

Who’s In Control?... You Are!

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your Web browser; however, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as “web bugs” and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

We may serve third party advertisements that use cookies and web beacons in the course of ads being served on our web site to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information you give us is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on our web site.

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.

Kids Matter Too… Children's Online Privacy Protection Act

This website is directed to adults; it is not directed to children under the age of 13. We operate our site in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age.

Don’t Take It Personally… Non-Personal Information

In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. The information collected is used solely for internal review and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

What’s Yours is Yours… Release of Information

If The Complete Maldives Holiday Guide is sold, the information we have obtained from you through your voluntary participation in our site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue. In that event, you will receive notice through our website of that change in control and practices, and we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honours any opt-out requests you might make of us.

How You Can Correct or Remove Information

We provide this privacy policy as a statement to you of our commitment to protect your personal information.
