Who we share your data with

We may share the information we have collected about you (including Personal Information): as disclosed at the time you provide your information, with your consent, as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, or in any of the following circumstances:

  1. Provide You Services
    We share Personal Information with our service providers that we have retained to perform services on our behalf including provision of IT and related services; provision of information and services you have requested; payment processing; and sending email or other communications or providing customer service activities. Payment information will be used and shared only to process your order and may be stored by a service provider for purposes of future uses.
  2. When You Agree to Receive Information from Third Parties or Request That We Share Your Information
    You may be presented with an opportunity to receive information from one or more third parties. If you agree at that time to have your Personal Information shared (by opting in or choosing not to opt out at that time), your Personal Information will be disclosed to that third party (or parties) and will be subject to the privacy policy and practices of that third party. If you later decide that you no longer want to receive communications from a third party, you will need to contact that third party directly. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of third parties.
  1. Administrative and Legal Reasons
    We reserve the right to disclose any information (including Personal Information) if we believe such action is necessary: (i) to conform to legal requirements, to comply with legal process or a subpoena, or at the request of a governmental entity conducting an investigation; (ii) to collect amounts owed to Hawaii Beach Getaway to enforce our policies or contracts or protect and defend the legal rights of our property, our Consumers, Partners, this website or its users, or any other party; (iii) if we in good faith believe that such action is permitted by law; or (iv) in an emergency, to protect the health and safety of our Consumers, Partners, users or the general public. In addition, from time to time, server logs may be reviewed for security purposes – e.g., to detect unauthorized activity on the Site. In such cases, server log data containing IP addresses may be shared with law enforcement bodies in order that they may identify users in connection with their investigation of the unauthorized activities.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
