What Information About You Do We Gather?
Information you provide helps us to know and serve you better, which is part of our Mission to provide consistent quality service to our guests. The types of information we gather are:
- Information You Give Us: We receive and store information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You may choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as reserving a room or any other products we may offer, responding to your requests, customizing your preferences and communicating with you.
- Automatic Information: We receive and may evaluate certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses www.fhihotels.com.
- E-mail Communications: We do use e-mail addresses for promotional purposes but we will provide you with the option not to receive such mailings, both in each promotional mailing and on this website.
You will, however, receive an auto-generated e-mail confirmation when making a reservation online, and occasionally from our reservation sales agents for inquiries related to a booking you have made for any of our services and products.
- Information from Other Sources: For reasons such as improving the personalisation of our services (for example, providing recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to your existing information.
- Travel Agents and Booking Websites: Travel Agents, authorised persons who book accommodation for you and online booking sites also supply us with your personal data so that we can provide you with the required services.
In the event you participate in FHI Group’s promotions, contests or sweepstakes, your name, electronic mail address and other personal information will be collected for identification and notification purposes.
We may collect certain information from your social media account consistent with your social media settings, when you take part in any social media activities sponsored by the FHI Group. You may also be subject to the privacy policies of these social media sites and the FHI Group shall not be responsible for your activities on these social media sites.
There may be third party websites linked to the FHI Group’s websites. We will not be responsible for any information contained on such websites and any activities conducted on such websites shall be at your own risk and will be subject to the privacy policies of the websites concerned.
What About Cookies?
Some websites store, as does www.fhihotels.com, information in a small text file, called a "cookie" on your hard disk. Cookies contain information about you and your preferences. For example, if you inquire about rates and availability, the site might create a cookie that contains the details you entered. Or it might only contain a record of which pages within the site you visited, to help the site customise the view for you the next time you visit.
Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a website, can be stored in a cookie. For example, the site cannot determine your e-mail address unless you choose to type it. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer, and only the site that created the cookie can read it.
Does the FHI Group Share the Information It Receives?Information about our guests is important for us in order to provide you with maximum comfort and the legendary experience of staying in the FHI Group.
