Privacy Policy

Commitment To Your Privacy:

This site is owned and operated by the Hotel Captain Cook. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At the Hotel Captain Cook, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

Information Hotel Captain Cook Gathers and Tracks:

The Hotel Captain Cook gathers two types of information about users:

1. Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to participate (submit a message to us) in our message boards or request for proposals, and from participation in polls. We may, in the future, offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with us and see what our audience thinks about important hotel related issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. The Hotel Captain Cook may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.

2. Information Hotel Captain Cook gathers through aggregated tracking. This information is derived mainly by tallying pages viewed throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to our customers' needs. We invite Users to submit messages to us so that we may reply to you. These are held confidentially and never shared outside our hotel. 

The Hotel Captain Cook tracks user traffic patterns throughout our entire site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. The Hotel Captain Cook does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).

Use Of Information:

The Hotel Captain Cook uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.

As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to enable users to participate in polls and surveys. The Hotel Captain Cook will never share this information.

We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us to continually build a better service for you.

Security:

The Hotel Captain Cook operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

Children:

Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18 without requesting parental consent.

Opt-Out Policy:

We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:

Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users.

Your Consent:

By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by the Hotel Captain Cook. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
