Cookies and Other Technologies
When you visit and interact with this site, MIRIHI and third parties with whom MIRIHI has contracted to provide services to MIRIHI, may collect non-personal information (for example, a catalog of the site pages you visit).

Our Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
As with many other sites, our site may use "cookies" or other technologies to help us deliver content specific to your interests, to process your reservations or requests, and/or to analyze your visiting patterns. Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to disclose your individual identity. This information identifies your browser, but not you, to our servers when you visit our site. If you want to remove or block cookies at any time from your computer, you can update your browser settings (consult your browser's "help" menu to learn how to delete or block cookies).

We also may collect data by using "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "pixel tags") that allow us to know when you visit our site and to understand how you interact with our emails or advertisements. Through pixel tags, we obtain non-personal information or aggregate information (i.e., the domain name, the areas of the site you visit, your operating system, your browser version, and the URL you came from), which can be used to enhance your online experience and understand traffic patterns.

Because non-personal information does not personally identify you, we may use or disclose such information for any purpose. In some instances, we may combine non-personal information with personal information (such as embedding email addresses in cookies). If we do combine any non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated by us as personal information in accordance with this Policy.

Our Vendors' and Partners' Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
We also work with vendors and other partners to help deliver online and mobile advertisements for our brands that we think may be of interest to you. Many of these advertisements are not targeted to you, but rather are placed on pages where we anticipate our target audience will visit frequently.

Our vendors and other partners also may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to perform services for us. MIRIHI does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties. These vendors and other partners include websites, online and mobile advertising networks and similar advertising service providers, and content networks. These vendors and other partners may record which ads your browser has seen and which site pages you may have been viewing when the ads were delivered.

Some of our advertisements delivered for us by these vendors and other partners may be based on your online behaviors (e.g., on MIRIHI sites and other third party sites), your search activity, or your general geographic location (such as whether your Wi-Fi network indicates that you are in an airport). These ads may appear on our own sites or on third-party websites. You may also see advertisements for third parties on other websites based on your visits to MIRIHI sites and other sites.

Also, if you search for a hotel reservation on a MIRIHI site, you may see an advertisement from a third party for a related or similar offer to that for which you were searching on the MIRIHI site.

For example, if you have visited the home page or the booking page for one of our properties but not actually booked a room, or if you have searched for a specific term (such as location or dates of stay), our vendors, acting on our behalf, may deliver an advertisement to you for that property or based on that search term. We also engage vendors to deliver online advertisements to consumers whose online behaviors on sites other than our own sites indicate that they may be interested in travel, or to help us deliver advertisements to consumers based on their publicly available social networking information. For example, if we know that you have stayed with us before, we may, through our vendors, deliver an online advertisement to you or your social networking friends. Some of our vendors may use anonymous data, such as demographic data, received from third parties to assist in the delivery of our advertisements to you.

Sensitive Information
The term "sensitive information" refers to information related to your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background or trade union membership. We do not generally collect sensitive information unless you volunteer it. We may use health data provided by you exclusively to serve you better and meet your particular needs.

Personal Information From Children
Except where required by local laws, we do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under 15 years of age. As a parent or legal guardian, please do not to allow your children to submit personal information without your permission.

Mobile and Location-Based Services
You can access our websites from a web-enabled mobile device to find a hotel (including clicking to call the hotel) or view or cancel a reservation. In addition, you can download an application to your Android phone or iPhone to provide additional functionality as described below. Using these applications you can find a hotel; book, view or change reservations; access your Loyalty Program account and book a reward stay. To book a reservation, you will be required to enter your name, address, email address and phone number, and you may be required to enter a credit card number. To view or change reservations, you will be required to sign in to your Loyalty Program account or enter your confirmation number and either your last name or last four digits of the credit card on the reservation. To sign in to or access your Loyalty Program account, or to book a reward stay, you will be required to enter your username or Loyalty Program number and your password or PIN. You can choose whether or not the application retains your Loyalty Program login information, to make it easier to access your Loyalty Program account through the application in the future.

 

If you have downloaded the application to a device such as an Android phone or iPhone, you can use the device's Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to locate a hotel near you. No personally identifiable information is retained to deliver this location based service.

 

Links to Third-Party Websites
Our site and our mobile applications may contain links to third parties' websites. Please note that we are not responsible for the collection, use, maintenance, sharing, or disclosure of data and information by such third parties.

Other third-party websites include the landing page of the high-speed Internet providers at our hotels, as well as social media sites (such as Facebook and Twitter) on which MIRIHI or our properties may have accounts or fan pages where you may be able to post information and materials.

If you provide information on third-party sites, the privacy policy and terms of service on those sites are applicable. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of websites that you visit before submitting personal information.

Protecting Personal Information
MIRIHI will take appropriate measures to: (i) protect personal information collected against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, and (ii) keep personal information accurate and up-to-date, consistent with applicable law. We also seek to require our affiliates and service providers with which we share personal information to exercise reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of personal information about you. For online transactions, we use technology to protect the personal information that you transmit to us via our site. Unfortunately, however, no security system or system of transmitting data over the Internet can be guaranteed to be entirely secure.

For your own privacy protection, we encourage you not to include sensitive personal information in any emails you may send to us. Please do not send credit card numbers or any sensitive personal information to us via email.

We will not contact you by mobile / text messaging or email to ask for your confidential personal information or credit card details. We will only ask for your confidential personal information or credit card details by telephone when you are booking a reservation or promotional package by telephone. We will not contact you to ask for your Loyalty Program account log-in information. If you receive this type of request, you should not respond to it.

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 and, where appropriate, request that we update, correct and/or suppress personal information about you that we maintain in our active database. We will make all required updates and changes within the time specified by the applicable law and, where permitted by law, may charge an appropriate fee to cover the costs of responding to the request. Such requests must be submitted in writing to the following address: Mirihi Island Resort, General Manager, South Ari Atoll, PO Box 2034, 00190 Maldives. To protect your confidentiality, we can only respond to such requests to the email address that you have registered or otherwise provided to us. 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.

In addition, in some circumstances based on applicable law, you may request that we cease sharing personal information about you with our business partners or that MIRIHI cease the use of personal information about you on the grounds that such personal information was acquired by unjust means or used in violation of law by sending your written request to: Mirihi Island Resort, General Manager, South Ari Atoll, PO Box 2034, 00190 Maldives. We will seek to honor those requests consistently with applicable law.

Retaining Personal Information
We retain personal information about you for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by applicable law.

Choices - Marketing Communications
If you have given us your contact information (mail address, fax number, email address or phone number), we may want to inform you about our products and services or invite you to events by email, telephone, mobile / text messaging (including SMS and MMS) or post.

If you prefer not to receive marketing materials from us, you may change your preferences at any time by: (i) sending us an email to rm@mirihi.com; (ii) writing to us (and include your email address) at Mirihi Island Resort, General Manager, South Ari Atoll, PO Box 2034, 00190 Maldives; or (iii) using the unsubscribe function in the email you receive from us. We will update your preferences as soon as reasonably practical.

Please note, however, that if you "opt-out" as described above, we will not be able to remove your personal information from the databases of affiliates, franchisees or business partners with which we have already shared your personal information (i.e., to which we have already provided your personal information as of the date of your opt-out request).

Policy Modifications
We may modify this Policy from time to time. When we make material changes to this policy we will post a link to the revised policy on the homepage of our site. You can tell when this Policy was last updated by looking at the link and at the date at the top of the Policy. Any changes to our Policy will become effective upon posting of the revised Policy on the site. Use of the site following such changes constitutes your acceptance of the revised Policy then in effect.

You also acknowledge that there is a possibility that subsequent to the execution of this Agreement, you will discover facts or incur or suffer claims which were unknown or unsuspected at the time this Agreement was executed, and which if known by it at that time may have materially affected its decision to execute this Agreement.

You hereby acknowledge that you have been advised by your legal counsel, understand and acknowledge the significance and consequence of this release and other such laws.
