Our website and associated websites (including those you reach by clicking on advertising) may place and store cookies on your web browser. Cookies are used to provide useful features to website users and have become standard in industry website use.
- Improve your website browsing experience. For example, remembering your search criteria and preferences for later visits and to avoid multiple search re-entries;
- Monitor, gather, analyse, manage and report statistics on the use of our site and improve its usability;
- Permit customised, appropriate messages and advertising from us and third parties;

Whilst unintended, some PII may be collected in limited circumstances such as when an email address is incorporated into a URL string but is not used by us. However if you are a Membership program member logged into your account, the information we collect via cookies may be linked with your PII.
How We Hold and Secure Your Information
We may hold and store your PII in a combination of hard copy and or electronic format in storage facilities that we either own and or operate ourselves or that are owned and or stored and operated by our service or third party information system providers. We may combine PII we receive, hold or store about you with other information we hold about you including information received from our third party service providers or business partners.
We take all reasonable steps to maintain the security of your PII (including when accessing your Membership program information) and to protect it from unauthorised disclosures.
However whilst we take these steps to maintain security of your PII information, there are many PII security risks that exist today and you are encouraged to take appropriate care to help safeguard your PII.
Disclosure of Information Overseas
In the course of providing our facilities, products and services, we endeavour not to send your PII (including Membership program PII) overseas. However there may be overseas disclosure circumstances where we share your PII with our providers or when we receive it from you, on your behalf or from third parties or others who either assist us in such provision or where you have used or utilised an overseas based or enabled online wi-fi service provider, website or electronic booking and or reservation service facilitator located overseas. In addition disclosure may also be made by us overseas where you or others on your behalf use an overseas on line wi-fi facility, entity or other people, persons or organisations to make a booking, reservation, inquiry or update your travel, reservations or bookings or they or you otherwise interact with us or with our related bodies corporate, entities, subsidiaries and or branded entities including our and their business partners, operators, product and service providers from overseas. Furthermore there may be overseas disclosure to those who perform or use operational or administrative services based overseas or those who may use cloud servers located overseas to store your PII. Disclosure of your PII may also be made to processing operators of global and cloud based data, hosting, distribution and retention systems that operate overseas.
As a consequence, it is not practicable to list the location of every service provider, on line wi-fi connector, electronic facilitator, entity or other people, persons, organisations or data processor located overseas with whom we deal with or with whom you or others on your behalf may deal with or who otherwise interacts with us on your behalf from overseas.
In addition an overseas recipient of your PII may be located in a country that might not provide an equivalent level of PII and or data protection and we cannot be accountable for how these recipients handle your PII. By providing your PII to us through an overseas online wi-fi provider, website or electronic booking and or reservation service facilitator entity or other people, persons or organisations from overseas on your behalf you consent to our disclosure of your PII to these parties. If you have any concerns regarding the transfer of your PII overseas please contact us.
